Overview

Leroy Shield composed the music for Hal Roach's comedy shorts and for some of his longer films in the '30s. He also conducted the orchestras that recorded the music, sometimes directly to the film. His sheet is either gone or it never existed. And the original recordings are subject to the poor storage techniques of that era. The Beau Hunks watched The Little Rascals films, paying close attention to the soundtracks. They transcribed the scores painstakingly, meticulously, and lovingly. They performed the music on period instruments and released The Beau Hunks Play the Original Little Rascals Music: 50 Roy Shield Themes. This music is note-for-note accurate and the orchestra plays it with love and respect. It is also an experience and a treasure. Listeners born in the '40s and '50s will wax nostalgic when they recall the tunes. These shorts were staples in children's afternoon programs in the '60s. The tunes are also brilliant for the imagery that they evoke. Shield used his clever techniques to play with the emotions of the viewers. These are classic atmospheres.
