In collaboration with Warner Music France, Music Box Records proudly presents the premiere CD release of the original 1973 LP album dedicated to Michel Magne and his best film music themes recorded at Ferber Studios in 1973: Michel Magne et son Grand Orchestre jouent les musiques de films de Michel Magne.
Four years after the fire that destroyed a large part of the composer’s works in the Château d'Hérouville, Michel Magne, with the precious help of arrangers Bernard Gérard, Claude Germain and Raymond Alessandrini, reworked some of his biggest successes, fully rearranged for this compilation. Between historical romance film (Angélique, Marquise des Anges), the French thriller (Mélodie en sous-sol), the hedonistic films of Roger Vadim (Le Repos du guerrier, La Ronde and Don Juan 73) and one of the most sulphurous feature films by Luis Buñuel (Belle de jour), this album highlights the great successes of Michel Magne during the 1960s and 1970s with new top notch arrangements.
The CD has been remastered from pristine condition stereo master tape vaulted by Warner Music France. This present edition comes with an 8-page booklet with liner notes by Nicolas Magenham. The release is limited to 500 units.
