Thanks for these three gems, Quartet -- never expected the Rozsa to be salvaged, really. Glad it has been and appreciate the hard work it took to do it. I've updated my Rozsa list here to reflect the new release:

Fingers crossed it makes it across Europe before next Friday. Otherwise it will be sitting at the post office for 10 days.

Glad to see the titles are selling well for you Quartet.

Wow! Selling out fast. Glad I got The Beastmaster when I did, although I'm still waiting for it to ship from Intrada. It currently shows "Pending Fulfillment" in my account. Maybe they're still waiting for their own shipment to arrive.

Nos. 1 & 3 are instant purchases, but since I already have the fine Silva-Rózsa and the suite the composer himself conducted for Polydor, I'll pass on No.2

Holdridge provides an incredibly powerful and exciting score dominated by an epic main theme.

Stu Phillips and Glen A. Larson thought so, too. Nevertheless a fine Holdridge adventure score.

Oh its wonderfull to finally see Jarre's expanded A PASSAGE TO INDIA. I thought James Fitzpatrick would have issued this exclusively on Tadlow (As I mentioned in the other thread) The sound quality is amazing here! The only bummer is that I'am just out of funds with Black Friday order and cd batches and its only 1200 units which will surely sell before I get my hands on it.Damn it. Need a fairy Godmother to help me out..lol!


I Finaly got my order in through SAE!

How many copies of INDIA is in stock with your inventory?

We regret to inform you that we have received the CD of "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" from the plant with a failure in the booklet, and we are in the process of repeating all the printing. These things happen, but we apologize.

The CD should arrive within 48/72 hours and we will send all the orders immediately.

Sorry for the incovenience.

It is increasingly clear to me that I will not land copies of Beastmaster, F/X 2 or Sherlock Holmes....sigh.....I really hate being self employed this time of year.

Well, I was waiting for the final notice. Just grabbed The Beastmaster from Intrada.

Just arrived! I ordered it from Intrada back on the 6th. I thought it was due out on the 12th, but when I emailed Intrada, they told me on the 16th they were still waiting for their stock from Quartet and it was supposed to go out that week.

Anyway, it finally shipped on Wednesday, Christmas Eve, and arrived today. I love living just over the mountains from Intrada. Packages from them always arrive super quick. Bizarre the way the track list is titled on the back cover, but at least the proper titles are included in the booklet. Looking forward to giving this a listen.

Placed my order with Intrada. Looks like they are still accepting orders.

Okay, I have not only been listening to The Beastmaster since I received it on Friday, but yesterday I pulled my DVD of the movie off the shelf and watched it for the first time in years.

The movie itself was actually a pleasant surprise. Yes, it has its limitations, but it tells a decent story with some nifty flourishes, has an ambitious scope, and often looks much more expensive than it was. The music is definitely one of the film's greatest assets, and it is treated thus in the sound mix.

While I have, in general, enjoyed the original album presentation, this has always been one of those operatic scores that suffered from being reduced to LP-length proportions. CD releases of this score have alleviated that problem somewhat by including “The Battle On the Pyramid,” but it still wasn't enough to capture the sweep and scope of this score. The original LP was about 40 minutes. The complete score on this new set nearly doubles that, running over an hour and a half, and yet it breezes by in about the same amount of time, subjectively speaking, making up for in breadth and dimension what it lacks in brevity.

While there are unfortunately a few moments where the elements were missing (the encounter with the bear and immediate aftermath, and the synth line missing from the cue I mentioned in a previous Beastmaster thread http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=83579&forumID=1&archive=0 are the two most apparent), this is in all ways a much better presentation of this score. The themes are given more room to develop and flourish at a more deliberate pace — many of them are much more versatile than was apparent on the original release.

It was very interesting to hear the original version of “The Battle On the Pyramid,” and I will be syncing it up to the film at some point to check out how it works, but I prefer the re-scored version that emphasizes the heroics; clearly Holdridge himself must agree as he included the revision on the expansions of the score. Nevertheless, what an interesting new facet of the score.

This was an extremely satisfying presentation.
