Black Beauty - Danny Elfman (Full Score)

Today I have the full score for the 1994 film "Black Beauty" by Danny Elfman. This soundtrack is now OOP and goes for quite a pretty penny in the collectors market ($40 - $120). I'm a fan of many soundtrack composers and I do enjoy most of Elfman's work.

This particular score is one of his all time best, and it's not for a strange off beat or creepy flick either. It has this Celtic kind of sound to it that fits the film so well. When you hear it you'll understand why I say it's so good. I do have to admit that for a children's movie it was a pretty well done flick as well. Enjoy, I'm sure there are some of you out there that have been looking for this one.

"Oh! If people knew what a comfort to horses a light hand is, and how it keeps a good mouth and a good temper... "

Hey no problem, I wasn't sure if it would be that popular or not. I never see it on the soundtrack blogs, but it's one of my favorite Elfman scores ever. Thanks for dropping by.

The link does not work! How horrid! This is one of my favorite soundtracks, and I have never been able to find a virus-free version of it online...

The Fiji Mermaid said...

T.Greer. I'll update the link. This post was from a few years ago so the link has since expired. Give me a few days and it will be updated. I post a message saying it's a new link.

Could you please upload each song separately? And then post the links? Or maybe upload them onto YouTube? I would be very grateful. By the way, do you have the soundtrack where Black beauty leaves Ginger? I have been looking for that one everywhere and cannot find it.

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Cat in the Clouds, this is the complete soundtrack that has every track from the original commercial release. No, I won't be uploading the tracks individually as that doesn't make sense for those who want to the soundtrack, it's much easier with one download.

As for uploading tracks to youtube, I won't be doing that, as again the download is the best way to get the tracks you want.

cat in the clouds said...

Oh, I'm sorry, it's just that my computer has blocked the website where the download link is. Is it possible you could send me one track, the one where Beauty leaves Ginger via email? I would be so grateful, but if you can't it's OK, I'm sorry if I bothered you

The Fiji Mermaid said...

I can send you the track as a single MP3, i'd need your email address though. I believe the track you are looking for is #16 titled "Poor Ginger", is this correct?:

No, it's when black beauty is sold and leaves ginger behind and he becomes a rent horse.. do you have that one? I think it's unreleased though.

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Cat in the Clouds: Ok, I believe it's this track "The Dance - Bye Merrylegs" that is heard here. Check the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=CG0qcRJPsSI#t=411s

cat in the clouds said...

No, sorry, but thanks anyway. It's not on YouTube, I heard it through the film. I just thought because the post said "full soundtrack" that it meant it would have every soundtrack from the film. I really love the soundtrack, but I wish every track were released. I don't suppose you have any unreleased ones apart from the original 19 tracks?

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Sorry, I only have what was originally released on the original album. Did you see the clip I provided in the last message. That was the scene I thought you were referring to. I don't know if there is any additional bits of the score out there or not.

cat in the clouds said...

No, sorry, it wasn't that scene. I ment the one where Black Beauty is sold, not Merrylegs. That has a diffrent score. But thanks anyway, I wasn’t expecting it to be released but I sort of hoped someone might have it.

This movie is brilliantly made for all ages. I have seen it many times and if given a chance to watch it again I would happily accept the offer. The music score in this movie is also nice.
