Rózsa's Jungle Book Available in Short Supply! FMS re-releases 300 copies in celebration of the composer's centenary
Track 21: Excerpt from a June 1, 1974 interview with Miklós Rózsa conducted by Rudy Behlmer, discussing Rózsa's score for Jungle Book.
In celebration of Miklós Rózsa's centennial year, The Film Music Society is proud to re-release Rózsa's historic score for the 1942 classic motion picture, Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Nearly two years ago, this popular CD was sold out of its Limited Edition release, and the FMS archived the manufacturer's overage. Due to popular demand by members and nonmembers alike, we decided to celebrate Rozsa's centenary by making our surplus copies available for purchase.
Rózsa's music shines on this CD in a way it never has before. Featuring lengthy and authoritative liner notes by Golden Age film expert Rudy Behlmer, this is an album you won't want to miss, skillfully restored and remastered from the last surviving transcription discs. As a bonus track, we've included an excerpt of a rare interview with Rózsa discussing his score with Behlmer in 1974. (Rózsa enthusiasts please note: The FMS will be releasing this interview in its full length later this year! Stay tuned!)
Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book is available for $20 plus s/h. To place a quick order by credit card, call The FMS at (310) 820-1909, email at email@example.com or visit the FMS Merchandise page for further contact and payment information.
