Twilight Of Honor - John Green

Phoenix Fire
Twilight Of Honor
And Recordings Of These Other Great Motion Picture Themes
Original Sound Track Recording Of Instrumental Music By John Green
MGM E-4185

Although the packing suggests that this set is a Chamberlain project, what we really have here is an MGM assembled John Green compilation album.

Despite the LP being assembled from a wide variety of sources, MGM managed to release a groovy sounding album. Credit should be given to the Director of Engineering, Val Valentin for the even sound mix.

Chamberlain's "Blue Guitar" is great 60s fun and can be purchased/downloaded at the usual online outlets.

From the back cover: Winner of four Academy Awards, and nominated 11 times, Green has had a brilliant career in motion pictures. For 10 years he was Executive in Charge of Music at MGM studios. His score for "Twilight Of Honor" marks his return to that lot after six years of free-lance projects which included being conductor and co-music director for "West Side Story," and supervisor, arranger, orchestra, and conductor for "Bye Bye Birdie."
