Reissue of 1992 Bay Cities CD of David Shire film music arranged for piano, with the David Shire "Sonata for Cocktail Piano" included as a bonus track. Limited edition of 1200 copies.

Originally released in 1992 and out of print for the last thirteen years, David Shire At The Movies is a wonderful compendium of Mr. Shire’s film music up to that point. Mr. Shire is one of film music’s most unsung heroes, and this album is filled with his memorable themes from such films as Norma Rae, The Conversation, Max Dugan Returns, Return To Oz, Only When I Laugh, Fast Break, ‘Night, Mother, Old Boyfriends, The Earthling, The Promise, Farewell, My Lovely, and others.

The CD also features special guests Maureen McGovern and Carol Neblett. Miss McGovern lends her unmistakable and beautiful voice to four of Mr. Shire’s classic movie songs, including the Oscar-winning “It Goes Like It Goes” (from Norma Rae), Only When I Laugh, The Promise, and “Halfway Home” (from The Earthling).

This was the first Shire album of its kind, and one of its joys is to hear these tracks in these chamber settings – unadorned – unplugged, as it were – just those incredibly gorgeous Shire melodies played by their composer and a handful of the best studio musicians who were working back then. As a bonus, Mr. Shire’s delightful Sonata for Cocktail Piano is included – the album runs over seventy-seven minutes.
