My thanks to everyone at Kritzerland for a wonderful 2013. From the hints of what to expect in 2014, I know that 2014 will be even more spectacular. Bruce, I hope you got into the front door of Columbia.



Front door of Columbia ...... Yes!

Back Door of Warner Brothers ........... leave with Max Steiner! smile

Jeepers! Well, as long as we're dreaming in a UA/MGM kinda way, here's mine:

SEPARATE TABLES - David Raksin (superb score!)

A big ditto also on Malcolm Arnold's INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS. One of his very best.

I also would love to have Raksin's SEPARATE TABLES. I think that a number of months ago , Bruce mentioned that Marilee Bradford of the Film Music Society had the elements for this score. It's a favorite of hers. Hopefully, the society will release in the future a tribute to Mr. Raksin and SEPARATE TABLES will be the score they choose. They have already paid tribute to Miklos Rozsa, Dimitri Tiomkin and last year Leonard Rosenman with CD releases. Sorry, if I was wrong in thinking it was Ms. Bradford.

It is Marilee and it's tricky. I've asked about it repeatedly, believe me.

To Bruce. I really enjoy your releases. I've bought Hamlisch and Goldsmith from you guys which I love. Also, do you guys have any unreleased Conti in the pipeline? I understand if you can't answer that question, I just thought I'd give it a shot.smileThanks again for all the work you do releasing these cds, I really appreciate it.

A 20th Fox title, and thus (Bruce) -- do-able? Most folks are probably not even aware of the "el" release, "The Cinema of Juliette Greco," which includes the first CD releases of the original LPs for THE ROOTS OF HEAVEN and a shortened THE SUN ALSO RISE,S along with a sampling of Ms. Greco's vocals from various films. Not sure it's even a release that would be considered legal in the U. S. Anyway, although the sound is not as thin as on the original LP, I have no doubt that Kritzerland's loyal sound minions could tweak it up a notch (like restoring a modicum of bass). I'd surely buy one or two, and I'd be ever so thankful! I might just start up another thread like this one sometime in 2014 to remind everybody how swell Kritzerland is.

Sun Also Rises ...... the original tracks, any chance Bruce?

...and especially my wonderful friend Nick Redman. Nick and I always have the most fun.

Hi, Bruce.

Do you know if Nick Redman has uncovered any further studio session tapes within the Fox vaults?

I'm very curious about the 1957 film score by Paul Glass for THE ABDUCTORS, conducted by Ingolf Dahl.
I've read that Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann had visited during these recording sessions and were amazed at how Dahl could manage to deliver results within deadlines and budget for such a "dark" and way-out score by Paul Glass.
[never saw the movie, but I hope its obscurity won't prevent the music from being released (if it exists) on the basis of fiscal infeasibility]

I can ask, but a lot of the low-budget stuff, much of which were pick-ups, don't exist there.

A wee late, but I must...

Kritzerland has easily been my favorite label this year. With BOTANY BAY and the other Waxman scores; all the great Raksin music; RISING SUN, HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY; and now the eagerly anticipated SABRINA & the Herrmann disc (which I missed out on initially...as I did TWISTED NERVE!), my genuine thanks, Kritzerland.

Definitely excited to hear about those upcoming Victor Young scores, too.

... including what we hope will be at least four separate volumes of Victor Young scores


One of these to be included please:

Johnny Guitar
Samson and Delilah
For Whom the Bell Tolls

KENYON HOPKINS!!!

Yeah! Good call OnyaBirri. Let's dream.

The only Kenyon I have is The Fugitive Kind from MGM Treasury. He only has a handful, maybe 12 Angry Men or Lilith? The Hustler looks worthy too.

Wouldn't THE UNINVITED be a delight to have also ? Remember Stella by Starlight ?

I always liked Kenyon Hopkins' score to 20CF's and Kazan's WILD RIVER with Montgomery Clift and Lee Remick. By the way, a standout performance by Jo Van Fleet.

That Hopkins score sounds intriguing. (Is it a western?) I've always enjoyed his scores in-film.

No, it's a story based on the building of damns on the Tennessee River because of devastating floods and the loss of many lives in the 1930's and a woman who refuses to leave her island which will be flooded when the damn is built. Tremendous opening title music using brass.
