TWISTED NERVE / THE BRIDE WORE BLACK (1200 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Bernard Herrmann

NEAR MINT - UNSEALED - ONLY ONE AVAILABLE

TWO GREAT BERNARD HERRMANN SCORES MAKE THEIR CD DEBUT!

TWISTED NERVE (Mastered from stereo master tapes)

"Cleaver. Cleaver. Chop. Chop. First the mom and then the pop. Then we'll get the pretty girl. We'll get her right between the curl."

TWISTED NERVE was a nasty little 1968 thriller from the Boulting Brothers. It reunited the stars of the previous Boulting Brothers film, The Family Way – Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennett, and also starred Frank Finlay, Billie Whitelaw, and Barry Foster. Bernard Herrmann created a memorable score, especially the film’s main theme with its haunting whistling melody, which would, decades later, be appropriated by that raider of pop culture Quentin Tarantino for his Kill Bill films. But the score is a lot more than that infectious whistling theme – it’s classic Herrmann all the way – brooding, chilling, and filled with the composer’s unique style and colors.

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK (Mastered from French EP release)

The same year as TWISTED NERVE, Herrmann scored Francois Truffaut’s film of Cornell Woolrich’s classic novel of suspense, THE BRIDE WORE BLACK. It was their second collaboration (the first was a true Herrmann masterpiece, Fahrenheit 451), and Herrmann delivered a wonderful score for Truffaut’s homage to Hitchcock, perfectly capturing the characters, the drama, and the Truffaut visuals.

9. Julie et l'echarpe
10. Cookie
11. Mariage de Julie
12. Arrestation de Delvaux et fuite de Julie

Twisted Nerve was originally released as one half of an LP (the flip side was Les Reed’s score to Les Bicyclettes de Belsize), and The Bride Wore Black was originally released as a 45rpm extended play record in France only. Both records went out of print immediately and became sought after collector’s items, holy grails for Herrmann collectors.

Total Time: 28:30

This release is limited to 1200 copies only.
