The first in Zorn's Filmworks
series, this disc contains excerpts to the soundtracks from three films,
White and Lazy, The Golden Boat, and She Must Be Seeing
Things, plus an arrangement of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". These
are some of the first films Zorn ever scored, and the results are an excellent
progression in his studio work after The
Big Gundown. The album is also an excellent introduction
to Zorn's 1980's studio work, his "Radio City" period.
There is some good
stuff on this album, and although I have certain reservations about the
some of the sound (the guitars sound really thin on this album)
I always find myself getting sucked into it. I love the score to She
Must Be Seeing Things, an moody take on the jazz and blues genres.
thing to note, I have heard one of the rockabilly tracks on this album
recycled for a recent series of insurance ads. Go figure.
