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!
