BEN-HUR (5 CD) -- SCREEN ARCHIVES ENTERTAINMENT | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

It has taken over half a century, but Miklós Rózsa’s iconic score for William Wyler’s 1959 epic, Ben-Hur, arrives in complete form at last—and “complete” in the best FSM sense of the word. This 5CD “Complete Soundtrack Collection” includes every film cue, every outtake, every alternate and every additional take preserved by the studio, mastered from the original six-track recordings, augmented by rare material from the Miklós Rózsa collection at Syracuse University. In addition, the set contains all three LP recordings released by MGM Records in conjunction with the film—including the premiere CD release of the rare (and controversial) Lion label disc.
