    90's group with a country rock/pop sound leaning towards Gram Parsons/The Byrds etc. Really great group who I think you'd appreciate.

      Both of these Jayhawks are to replace CD copies - which are free to you, John, if you drop me a PM. The Jayhawks are noted for their perfect harmonies. Chesnutt is cut from a similar cloth, sort of a Leonard Cohen goes alt country. Poignant songs. Great friend of Michael Stipe, I believe. Good if you like songs.

      The collection these came from was so encyclopedic that you I just knew that (at least) Hollywood Townhall would have been there had I got there sooner. Not to worry. Also left behind various Lambchop and Calexico albums and (I will pick this up next time I go, assuming it is still there) The Magical World of The Strands.

      Vlasislav - very nice finds there, particularly that Tindersticks.

      At first I bought records, then I started to collect records; now I merely accumulate records.

              is it taken from the original release score, or is it from the Walter Murch re-edit whcih came out a few years ago - the music is quite different, especially for the opening sequence... bomb into boot of car, etc...

                Wasn't aware of this re-edit. Is it better or worse than the original cut (or just...different)?

                  Hi, Sleevenotes state that music composed by Henry Mancini, prepared for release by Robert Townson & Tom Hall. This is the music used in the film, no re-edits or re-touching. One of my favourite films too.
                  "Welles suggested that the emphasis should go on Afro-Cuban rhythm numbers with traditional Mexican music and the plan was to use mostly instrumental rock-and-roll, coming from places such as the radio loudspeakers, juke boxes and in particular, the radio, in the motel"
                  "What we want is musical colour, rather than movement-sustained washes of sound rather than tempestuous, melodramatic, or operatic style of scoring"
                  I think it worked really well. If anyone wants a copy? vladislav

                    The Jayhawks sound exactly like the song "Weekend" by the great little British band Unicorn, I mean it's uncanny.

                        Whoa...you really should pick that up! I just paid £25 for the privilege and I was happy to pay that amount....classic LP. Hope it was still there for you.
