SRC's version is by far the best version. I did like the Duke's and Orchestral Original's versions as well.

This is Andy W, long lost FMU family member- doing sound for a production of Gynt and looking for interesting pre show music. You have given me a gold mine!! FMU never stops being a fantastic thing in life!

Joe Moretti the original

Hi WFMU from Joe Moretti, the guy from Nero etc . I'm afraid I was responsible for "Hall Of...." Just wanted to let you know I'm still alive and playing. I'm in South Africa. Been here nearly 30 years. Love your blog and comments. It would be nice to hear from you...Kind regards to all.....Moretti

WOW.thanks for posting src`s version of the hall of the mountam king. I hav not heard it since 1971 or so.

~The Stranger

This was a godsend! I use different versions of this as the opening theme for my radio show here in San Francisco. Here are some others I found you may want to add, artists and album..

Hugo Montenegro - Montenegro and Mayhem
Robert Wells - Rhapsody in Rock, Complete Collection
Sounds Incorporated - British Invasion, History of British Rock Vol. 3
Silver Fist - Ave Fenix
Big Brother and the Holding Company - The Lost Tapes


Hey, one major omission here: The Wombles — "Hall Of The Mountain Womble" — "Oi! Get off my mountain!"


Remarkable collection!

but the Van Helsing's Curse - this is the theme from Tubular Bells ( Mike Oldfield )

Kip W

Hugo Montenegro arranged a pretty powerful version for an album called BONGOS AND BRASS, which I got in one of the "Mangled Masterpieces" sets from ReDiscovery. And E. Power Biggs, the organ purist, made his own compelling translation of the piece for pedal harpsichord, where the sound of his feet on the pedals works as a percussion instrument.
