Information from the label: "Alex North is the father of modern film music - an inspiration and a hero to the generations that followed him.
"For those of us coming of age in the 1950s, and seriously interested in film music, Alex North was an inspiration, a role model and a hero. He was then and he remains so today." - John Williams
Jerry Goldsmith himself put it very succinctly, when speaking of Alex: "Of all of us, he's the master."
