the releases on the Tadlow label itself do have much superior packaging and artwork than the ones produced for Prometheus.

Yes. I'm still puzzling over the bloody sword hilt the keeps recurring in the QUO VADIS pages. There's no swordplay in that movie! Perhaps it was something left over from CONAN?

That I would suspect would the choice of the in-house art director of PROMETHEUS RECORDS and Mr. Van De Ven based on past experience.

One tiny complaint -- why no conducting credit for James Fitzpatrick on that lovely looking 13 minute The Red Pony suite?

Still this is the release of the YEAR for me...and I think 2012 has been an amazing year for film music releases!

I think this thread would be getting a lot more attention if it were retitled "Hour of the Gun New TADLOW Recording" -- a lot of people may otherwise think it's just another discussion of the original album.

It's arrived this morning courtesy of Silva Screen, and it's a superb recording, brilliant job James and co.

I've just played the original album and then the new one and I'm pleased to say , that in my opinion the new recording beats the old one in every department.

Well done everybody concerned with this production, I'm already looking forwards to the next one in the series.

The information on the source of the RED PONY suite in the booklet is incorrect: Alexander Courage was not involved. The idea came from Jon Burlingame, and it was assembled and orchestrated by David Newman for the American Youth Symphony. Apologies to Jon and David for not giving credit where credit was due!

My fault entirely for not doing my research...so heartfelt apologies to David Newman and Jon Burlingame

This is an absolutely superb album and the score is way it should be heard--complete and with a full orchestra. I look forward to the future releases in this series. I agree with Yavar; this is the release of the year, and that is really saying something, considering Quo Vadis just came out a few weeks ago.

Listening now--it's terrific and I can't wait to hear more from this series. A lot of the sound reminds me of the material we had in good sound from The Satan Bug.

Magnificent performance of one of Jerry Goldsmith's excellent western scores "HOUR OF THE GUN". The recorded sound is utterly brilliant. Both the interpretation and sound of ...GUN sheds a new light on the merits of this score. Outstanding to, is the gorgeous suite from "THE RED PONY". This CD is probably the best re-recording of Goldsmith's music. It is a must have recording in any ones film music collection.

This is great news this release and since it's mentioned that it's the first in a series of Goldsmith Re-Recordings, may I suggest a double bill album that would make me fly to the moon out of excitement:

Shamus / Pursuit

both scores are the in same early 70's style so they go well together. They're pretty short so they would both fit on one cd. The masters are presumed lost which is why no label has ever issued them.

Please consider it. Thanks a lot.

I agree it is a sublime recording. "The Red Pony" gets me every time.

Got this today. It's absolutely glorious from beginning to end. Wow!

A superb reconstruction/presentation!

I can't wait to find out which other Goldsmith scores Prometheus/Tadlow has up their sleeves :-)

Hopefully it will be THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER. I am tired of waiting for Varese to get to this gem.

I've listened to Hour Of The Gun twice since it arrived yesterday, I like it, it's a wonderful release and recording. To my mind and ears it doesn't surpass the original rerecording but it's a great addition to our collections. Looking forward to many more Tadlow/Prometheus rerecordings, great work James and Co.! The Red Pony suite is simply superb!

This should be combined with the "Hour of the Gun/"Red Pony" thread. no?

The latter would make more sense since this is the original thread. It does, however, really need to be retitled as I keep saying, ie. following the Quo Vadis example, "HOUR OF THE GUN (COMPLETE) Tadlow Recording!

Otherwise the thread from the title simply appears to just be yet another thread about the existing album which has been out for decades...

I don't have this one yet, but the clips sound good. If Tadlow can nail Goldsmith, whose OST albums tended to have, even when re-recorded, a very unique soundscape and acoustic, then they can nail anything, so this is great experience in reconstruction.
