This Month's Colgems Upload: Night of the Generals (1966)
This month's Colgems upload is the soundtrack to the fairly obscure 1966 film Night of the Generals.
I know very little about this film, and I don't think I have ever seen it. According to Wikipedia:
"The Night of the Generals is a 1967 suspense/thriller set in World War II, adapted from the novel of the same name by Hans Hellmut Kirst. It stars Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif, Tom Courtenay, Donald Pleasence, Charles Gray, Philippe Noiret, Joanna Pettet, and Coral Browne."
The film's music is by Maurice Jarre, who was kind of the staff composer at Colgems, with his stamp on such soundtracks as Lawrence of Arabia and Interlude.
This album will remain available until March 15, and you can pick it up at http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/albumania/ until March 15.

Colgems: MIA LPs
I have just nicked one off my list, but I am still missing the following Colgems albums in LP and/or MP3 format:
Film Festival (this is a compilation, which I might be able to compile with the tracks and files I do have)
Lawrence of Arabia
The Southern Star
I ask, once again, if anyone has any of these albums, preferably in MP3 format. Once I get these albums, I will post them for those who read this blog and for those who belong to my various Yahoo groups.
Eagle-eyed readers will note that one album has come off the list. I finally found it, and will post it on Feb. 15. I won't let on about which album it is--try to figure it out.
