Bonnie And Clyde (1967)

George Bassman (score rejected), Charles Strouse 

Released in:

A travesty of a soundtrack
Damien Slattery (May 10, 2010)
This is a warning !
This purports to be a soundtrack of Charles Strouse's period score, but it is actually full of sound-clips from the film. We get constant snippets of dialogue that have no value without the visual. The only uninterrupted music is the main title- "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" by Flatt & Scruggs. There is some superb Strouse here, in a country/blue grass vein. All the other tracks are sound effects and dialogue that segue into the composer's background score. The music sections are very short, which is probably why the CD is formatted this way, but I would gladly have a very short album than a truncated thing like this. Strouse has written some very winning music that has a hint of Americana in Copland mode, with occasional flavorings of banjos and trumpets. If I was Charles Strouse? I would sue the album producers. What in Heaven were they thinking?!

Love the film but the album is little more than a souvenir
by a soundtrack collector (March 3, 2006)
Chalk it up to personal tastes, but as much as I love the film I find that I rarely ever listen to this soundtrack album. The banjo picking and corn-fed incidental muic never seemed much worth frequent listenings. The one exception is the beautiful selection"Family reunion."
Folks mostly like this album for the lively "Foggy mountain Breakdown" which was the music that accompanied the pair's more bone-headed heists.
