View Full Version : Slaughterhouse-Five lossless wav

I live in a small city, about a million people, and we have a typical small city symphony. Went to it last night - a Russian/American soloist was sitting in. The program was light classics. Light classics are awful. They sound like the essence all the poor 1920s/1930s soundtracks you've ever heard. Make you want to stick sharp pencils into your ears. First piece I started thinking about how much better good classical soundtracks are than any light classic classical music any day of the week and Slaughterhouse-Five instantly came to mind. Then I thought, you moron, of course it sounds better, those were some of the best recordings of some of the best music ever written. Slaughterhouse-Five was and remains one of my favorite films of all time. North Americans just didn't get it. I know Peter Jackson has it on his shortlist of upcoming remakes. I can hardly wait. No doubt four hours long with hobbits somewhere. Why??

I've only ever had Slaughterhouse-Five on vinyl, my original one, too, purchased, well... when it was first released. I've never heard it on cd. After much searching, I found it in lossless ape. Do not know the source of what I found. Converted that to wav and it sounds wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. The wav file is here:

Only wav because that's how I play stuff like this.
Note: it should have 9 cuts. I could only find places to divide it into 8. It's all here, though. It does not have the Bach: Corale: Komm. heilger Geist, Herr Gott, BWV 651 Lionel Rogg, that ended the vinyl album, and the movie, I believe. If anyone has that and would like to add the link, much appreciated. If anyone can divide this into 9 cuts properly, please do. If anyone wants to convert this into mp3, what a waste but go for it.

Dresden: 50 years and a couple weeks ago?
So it goes.

All Bach, all performed by Glenn Gould.
