Gone With the Wind is without doubt one of those all time classic films, with one of those all time classic scores, or perhaps I should say themes. I'm thinking of "Tara's Theme" of course. Sonic Images has released a re-engineered version of a recording done back in 1961 - a recording which was approved by the composer. Now, if you're thinking "Hey, I don't want an ancient recording with crappy sound...", I can tell you that there's certainly nothing wrong with the sound, you won't hear it's an old recording.

The music is arranged into two different suites. Now, the idea with continuous music is very good, but it would have been better to divide the suites into several tracks. That way it's much more easy to skip parts you don't like, or listen to parts you really like.

For the epic film Gone With the Wind Max Steiner created a wonderful timeless score, packed with wonderful themes (I especially like Tara's theme and another very pastoral theme, that sounds like it could be taken directly out of Beethoven's 6th Symphony), motifs and lush orchestrations; sweeping strings, powerful brass and soft woodwinds. The music never gets boring or tedious. This score is essential in any film music lovers collection.

Included on the CD are also six cues from other classic film scores, such as Manos Hadjidakis' score for America, America and Miklos Rozsa's Spellbound. All having one thing in common - it's great timeless music written by great timeless composers.
