This is one of Varese' most cherished recordings. Georges Delerue: The Complete London Sessions is such a priceless collection of his music that we couldn't stand having its last reissue be out of print any longer. The suites, recorded in London in the spring of 1989, were first issued as three individual volumes, each with a Bob Peak painting on the cover. In 2001 we compiled the original three volumes into a 2-CD set called Great Composers: Georges Delerue, featuring a Matthew Peak photo of Paris on the cover.
For this new edition we return to Bob Peak's "Lady In White" painting from Volume One and present all of the newly recorded London suites that Georges Delerue recorded for us (not including the various bonus tracks of previous editions, which were not recorded at the London sessions). It is a priceless collection of Delerue's sumptuous music. We have remastered it and are absolutely thrilled to have this collection join our very special new batch of CD Club titles.
From Rich and Famous, Platoon and Beaches to Steel Magnolias, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Memories of Me and Hommage à François Truffaut, this is a collection not to be missed.
