At the Movies: Soundtrack Hits (2007) is a 19-track compilation of Van Morrison songs featured in a film at one time or another. Rather than play like an odds-and-ends compilation of soundtrack rarities as one might expect, Soundtrack Hits plays like a best-of collection, including many of Morrison's greatest solo hits along with a couple Them songs ("Gloria," "Baby Please Don't Go"). There are several live versions in place of the studio cuts. The live versions of "Moondance" and "Brown Eyed Girl" are previously unreleased.
These seven discs recorded between 1995 and 2000 make up a fabulous anthology of early seventeenth-century Italian music. A large number of composers are gathered round the central figure of Claudio Monteverdi; while some of them, like Salomone Rossi, Biagio Marini and Dario Castello, are among the musicians with whom he worked in Mantua or Venice, others illustrate the extraordinary musical creativity of the period, whether it be Sigismondo d’India, Tarquinio Merula, Francesco Cavalli, Alessandro Grandi, or so many other lesser-known personalities, each of whom helped to build the rapidly growing edifice of Italian Baroque music.
At The Movies is a 3 CD collection of excerpts and pieces from seven films scored by Keith Emerson covering the years 1981 to 2004. Most of this music is very rare and collectable. Much of it makes its official CD debut in the US. Disc one begins with the complete soundtrack to 1981's Sylvester Stallone suspense thriller Nighthawks. The set features a rare vocal Emerson performance of Spencer Davis hit, I'm A Man. Music from the 1986 film Best Revenge closes the disc with guest vocals from Boston's Brad Delp on the song Playing for Keeps. Disc two covers three Italian movie scores beginning with the 1980 horror film Inferno directed by Dario Argento. Next up is four pieces from 1988's La Chiesa or The Church directed by Michele Soavi. The disc closes with nine tracks scored for the film Murderock released in 1986. Disc three features the score for 2 Japanese films. Harmageddon was an animated film from 1985. Godzilla Final Wars closes the set with 13 tracks which Emerson scored for this 2004 remake of the classic monster movie.
