Fumio Hayasaka - Seven Samurai: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (LP - White Vinyl)


Limited edition first press of 500 copies on white vinyl. Fumio Hayasaka first worked with Akira Kurosawa in 1948 when he composed the score for Drunken Angel. Many hold the partnership of Hayasaka and Kurosawa in the same esteem as that of Nino Rota and Federico Fellini; an incomparable team, with the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Hayasaka scored seven of Kurosawa's best films and died while scoring his eighth. Seven Samurai (1954) was his last complete Kurosawa score.
