Intrada The White Buffalo review

Friday, 13 June 2003 15:05

Reproduced here (as restored from Film Score Monthly thread):

Good news and bad. The Good: Prometheus issues World Premiere Release of original soundtrack from J. Lee Thompson western drama starring Charles Bronson as Wild Bill Hickok. Barry's dark, dramatic score plays to moodiness of picture, captures images of massive, symbolic animal and Native American settings. Lean strings, expressive French horns, solid percussion riffs are highlights.

The Bad: Outer packaging somewhat deceptively mentions source material as "best available". Inner packaging notes "archival" status, unavailability of multi-track masters and mentions a pair of tracks having traces of faint dialog. In actuality, anomalies exist throughout, suggesting some tracks transfered from production tapes used by music editors, etc. Additional liability: pinched mono sound. WHITE BUFFALO is important John Barry music, foreshadowing more-celebrated work ahead. This limited edition album is - however - a disappointment.
