John Morris' Blazing Saddles
7-Jul-2015 - Silva Screen Records presents Blazing Saddles. A physical release of composer John Morris’ pitch-perfect score to Mel Brooks’ great Hollywood comedy, this 40th anniversary edition is the most complete version yet with 28 tracks that also incorporates some of the most hilarious dialogue from the film.This was Morris’ fourth film score and his third one for Brooks' movies (after The Producers and The Twelve Chairs). In collaboration with John Morris, Brooks skilfully also created a magnificent score that refined every possible musical cliche connected to westerns from swirling strings to choral refrains. Drawing upon Yiddish theatre and early vaudeville skits influences, Brooks produced a glorious, gag-packed parody of the western genre.
