Buy it... only if you're looking to replace a few of your old Citadel Records' LP products that are digitally transferred on this product.

Avoid it... if you're tempted by the substandard re-recordings of the Bruce Broughton or Dimitri Tiomkin material, both of which painful in their quantity of performance errors.

Adventures in Hollywood: (Compilation) From a production standpoint, you can see what Citadel Records was trying to do when they assembled the "Adventures in Hollywood" compilation in 1996. There was a sudden rush of film music compilations in the 1990's, often featuring theme-based combinations of re-recordings of popular film scores and original recordings that the labels happened to own. By this time, many of these compilations were outstanding, featuring re-recordings by some of the best ensembles in the world. Citadel owned the rights to a handful of scores they had released on LP that they felt were worthy of a digital transfer onto CD. In this case, they were the 1959 Hans J. Salter score to the NBC television series Wichita Town and select 1960 re-recordings of Robert Farnon's 1951 score to Captain Horatio Hornblower. To make the CD more attractive, Citadel contracted for the right to release two recordings by a relatively unknown orchestral ensemble in Texas. This group recorded the usual suite cue from Bruce Broughton's fantastic Silverado and a suite of famous Western themes written by Dimitri Tiomkin. The album was then assembled by Citadel under a sort of "adventure" theme despite the obvious fact that everything on the album was a Western score except for the nautical Farnon swashbuckler. Unfortunately for Citadel, their ability to produce compilations that could compete favorably with their competitors was lacking; they simply didn't have the funds to offer anything spectacular (which is necessary on such compilations). Citadel has instead always been known for their release of B-rate scores by young or second-tier composers. In the case of "Adventures in Hollywood," the product doesn't work on any level unless you're interested solely in the straight digital transfer of Salter's Wichita Town from the label's previous LP release.
