Now, who would have guessed that ?! I am literally thrilled. !

Well, I had some presentiments about it on January (after one remarkable incidents in my life)...
But I never thought that it will be 2 CD set!

Perhaps it's the complete score on one CD, the original album on the other...

sounds like a reasonable assumption.

My 3 guesses:

BODY HEAT, .....

KNOWING lk'S taste i expect this to be one of 'em

Already have Outland! Seriously, can't wait for Body Heat. It's one of my last grails. And no offense intended.

So the Southern Cross LP was legal and the Lasher Mix, then?

And the South Cross and Label X CDs were bootlegs? Were they the same Lasher Mix as the LP?

I'm just looking at the CDs listed here:

http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/1318/Body+Heat

Or was there another bootleg not listed there?

Some German outfit made a bootleg out of the Southern Cross CD and the Varese CD. Forget it, it's illegal trash and we have no need to speak of it.

John Barry sometimes called the Lasher album a bootleg but I don't know that it really was: he just vehemently hated Lasher's mix and did not approve of it.

Cheers

I was aware that this one was coming, but I didn't know it was #248, I must say.

1) Legal.
2) Both are the same mix.

Barry never spoke with S.Lasher again after that wrecked business affair.

Why must you say that?

Sounds like a typical Barry-situation - do we ever get a guy like him that doesn't take shit from the big guys?

S.Lasher was not a 'big guy'.
Basically underfunded.

BODY HEAT is an excellent score -- one of only two Barry albums I've retained. This will make three. But I'm intrigued by this comment:

The score’s haunting main theme is sexy, seductive and a little sad—a throwback to ’40s noir music yet more knowing and modern. At its heart is a jazz quartet

There seems to be a widespread belief that the soulful wailing jazz saxophone typifies the film noir scores of the 1940s. But is that really true? Or have people just been bamboozled by Guy Noir and similar modern parodies? The most prominent composers for those forties films were Webb, Rozsa, Steiner, and Waxman. I'm hard pressed to think of any of their forties scores that make much use of a jazz sax. Barry's treatment is naturally different. But how on earth is it "more knowing"?

Perhaps the conception arises from the fact that jazz itself was at one of its peaks at that time (even if film score composers were not yet employing its grammar in their work)?

For future guessing purposes, does this complete the FSM John Barry catalog?

I had a hunch the upcoming release might be Body Heat...

Thank you so much FSM for this fantastic soundtrack release by one of the most iconic film composers of all time.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
