As you can tell, Neville Marriner and the Academy are my go-to's and they never disappoint! :D

I highly recommend this on vinyl, too...

Jerry Goldsmith was one of the best soundtrack composers...I recently picked up this CD at the thrift store and I can see why he was so great...I hear this sweeping theme and it makes me smile! :)



I'd love to find that green pressing of the album from a couple years back...

...but how's the sound quality? :-k

I have to add this one, too...This made me appreciate Andrea Bocelli all the more... :)

Hi Vinyl master,

Yes, gorgeous aria! The opera however stretches credibility even more than most operas. I can't imagine gambling my life for the love of a woman who is not "all that" and hates men.

Jerry Goldsmith is an excellent composer, and his soundtracks are amazing pieces of work.
I've got the soundtrack CD of Basic Instinct, among others, and it's just fabulous.
