A “Mad” music cue you may have missed!

For soundtrack lovers everywhere, this week presents a very special CD, the actual soundtrack score from the general release version of”It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” by Ernest Gold conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. We were ahead of the curve on this one, having experimented with extracting the rear channel information to get the only surviving recording, mostly without the effects tracks more than three years ago! The CD is available from La La Land records.
Apparently, while cutting down the original roadshow in 1963, the international version of the film left a few remnants behind that you may never have heard! Here they are, presented for informational purposes only!


A special video treat for all who supported our efforts!

In celebration of La La Land’s 2 Disc soundtrack set of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”, and as a thank you to the loyal listeners of “The Rosita Beach Podcast”, we present this exclusive video treat!
We had hoped to play a part in this official release, but as the song says, “The only thing you are sure of…is that nothing is sure!” We were never called or notified until after the fact. But there is no doubt that we were all ahead of the curve, knowing that the rear channels could be used as some sort of extended soundtrack release. Thank you all for listening and please buy this new CD right away!  It will be released on March 15!
