King Kong Movie Suite (1976)

King Kong Movie Suite (1976)
Music Composed and Conducted by John Barry

We have a lyrical movie suite for this 1976 remake of an original classic motion picture. John Barry, who is best known for his work on the James Bond franchise as well as Out Of Africa, penned us a moving and lasting tribute that transcends the heart wrenching story graciously. With the limited use of piano and early synthesizer to acompany the orchestra, we are taken on a journey that is very different from the other composer's who tackled this same subject yet this is no less fitting. Although the main theme is used sparingly throughout, we are reminded of it enough to welcome the simple motif. With a timing of 25:02, this is worth a listen. Hope you enjoy. -MJ
