Grace Quigley Soundtrack [1984-2011]

An unusual soundtrack from John Addison – penned for an even more unusual late film with Katherine Hepburn! The score has a nice mix of Addison's two most familiar modes – his ear for writing large, full charts rich in feeling – similar to some of his famous historical soundtracks – and his way of interspersing these larger themes with some more playful, whimsical numbers – usually carried off here with a smattering of 80s instrumentation that sets them off nicely! These latter cuts almost feel like they're pulled right out of an early 80s Italian comedy, and certainly broaden the appeal of the record. As usual with these great Quartet reissues, there's lots of notes on the film and the music – and enough bonus tracks to make for a whopping 26 cut package! Titles include "Oscar", "The Proposal", "Wish Me Luck", "Putnam's Short Cut", "The Geriatric", and "The Lovely Death Of Mr Jenkins". (Limited edition of 1000 copies.)
