Jerry's Turn

Movie prequels are rarely a good idea, and one of the weirdest was definitely 1972's The Nightcomers, an attempt by director Michael Winner (Death Wish) to show the events leading up to the events of Henry James' famous ghost story, The Turn of the Screw. In this case, the explanation involves lots of S&M with Marlon Brando and Stephanie Beacham. Not good, really, but certainly interesting. Easily the best thing about the film is the score by the late and highly underrated Jerry Fielding, who's better known for his dissonant work with directors like Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch) and Clint Eastwood (The Outlaw Josey Wales). The music here is very lyrical and melodic, one of his strongest and most unusual achievements.

Sorry, link removed - an expanded CD is now commercially available.

Does anyone have a copy of "Phantom of the Organ/Vampyre at the Harpsichord" they can share?

Thanks a lot for this! I'm only just beginning to appreciate Jerry Fielding. I never would have, if not for items from various blogs which introduced me to stuff I'd never have bought.

I'm having trouble negotiating the new Rapidfolder set-up. I can get to the page where the file download link is, with a premium membership, but each download link takes me to a "can't display page" message. The FAQs aren't helping me. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I downloaded one file with the "free" option, and had no problem.
