Hammer Horror Classic Themes 1958 -1974 Silva Screen Records

Aficionados of the minatory and dramatic scores for the fondly-remembered Hammer films will have several of these pieces already in various iterations; the time when such music was hard to find on disc seems, thankfully, long distant. Needless to say, the éminence grise of the Hammer film soundtrack was the late James Benard, handsomely represented here with his vampire scores and his powerful themes for the Dennis Wheatley adaptation The Devil Rides Out. A pleasing spruce-up job is done on the original soundtracks, and while there are some tracks which hardly repay listening (such as the deeply misfiring The Lost Continent), admirers will be more than happy.
