Liner notes: 

GOODBYE AGAIN marks that rare combination of a truly great motion picture, and a musical score of equal magnitude. Starring Ingrid Bergman, Tony Perkins and Yves Montland, the film is one of the tremendous dramatic content brilliantly performed by a superb cast, magnificently directed by Anatole Litvak, and photographed amid the beauty that is Paris.

Equally impressive is the music which was written by Georges Auric, and which is so important throughout the picture in setting the various moods. There is, of course, the hauntingly beautiful theme, based on a Brahms melody, and then there is a tempo to fit each successive mood, from happy to sad, from the Salon to the Saloon, each melodically perfect as a backdrop to the story line as it unfolds on the screen.

There is no question that GOODBYE AGAIN is destined to be one of the memorable motion pictures of the Sixties. There is also no question that the musical score will live on for many years to come, its appeal universal, its quality unmatched.

Doug's comments: 

I don't have this Lp in my collection but based on the back cover image (acquired via Google), it appears to have only one track performed by Ferrante & Teicher. Here's what Wikipedia has to say about the music:


The score is by Georges Auric, with additional music by Brahms. The Brahms motifs are the 4th movement from Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68, and the 3rd Movement from Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90.[2] Film critic Bosley Crowther called the score "almost as elegant as the settings, which are the most respectable things in the film."[7]

The soulful theme of the third movement of Brahms' Symphony No. 3 is heard repeatedly, including as the tune of a song ("Love Is Just a Word") sung by the night club singer (Diahann Carroll).[2]

The soundtrack was released by United Artists Records (UAS 5091) in "electronic" (i.e. simulated) stereo.[2]
