|'Stanley Black was an unsung stalwart of British film music who died in 2002. Here he is remembered in some fine premiere recordings by Chandos. Horror scores such as the preposterous ‘Blood of the Vampire’, the cross-channel swimming drama ‘Stormy Crossing’, and highly effective good-time caper music for Cliff Richard’s ‘The Young Ones’ are all highlights from an enterprising disc. Barry Wordsworth steers the BBC Concert Orchestra with unerring agility.'
