This is not the original soundtrack recording used in the film, but a rerecording made by Alfred Newman the same year (the actual OST was conducted by both Herrmann and Newman).

It should also be noted that the release date for the Decca LP is probably wrong (both LPs have '1954' on their covers). The cover of the Decca LP says 'Simulated Stereo' and 'HiFi'...
