Must be nice to say the journey of a thousand grails has finally ended. I still have somewhere over hundred grails (of varying greatness) that have yet to be released. :-(

THE MAN IN HALF MOON STREET! Boy, you couldn't make this stuff up. The early forties (post- Korda pictures released through UA and Columbia) are the dark ages of Rozsa's career in terms of new recordings. Nice to have this gap filled in.



UA? Columbia?

Half Moon is on youtube ...... shows the Paramount logo.

Well, only a few hours to go (plus a few weeks for delivery) until I have to find myself a new grail to wish for.

Happy days indeed.

The new version of YSH will be a 24 tracks new mix.
VERY SAD NEWS...

SO

The old Intrada promo is from the original stereo master tapes, and this is good. BUT it has been poorly cut and paste edited (lots of cross fades). Too bad. No good presentation at all.

The new and "official" presentation is a whole new mix from the original multitrack master tapes; better sound quality, more music and bonus tracks added, but... THIS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL MIX AS HEARED IN THE FILM.

Too too too bad!!!!!!

Hopefully there's a great "recording sessions" around here. And that's the ONLY original film version source, the only way to listen to this great score in its original version. YSH is one of my Holy Grails, I'm very sad about these EVIL "new multitrack tapes remixes"...
I will buy only the O-R-I-G-I-N-A-L VERSION OF A SCORE.

If you want it to sound exactly like the film, watch the film.

The rest of us want albums actually mixed for listening to as music...

The film version of a score is very rarely the "original" version.

We just got through with this crap but the earlier comment was deleted and the account banned. Stop it. We don't care about your tedious mindset.

Umm, since when is this a problem? A few remixes come to my mind that are botch jobs (Empire Strikes Back, Varese Great Treat Robbery) but the vast majority of new mixes we hear are very well received for good reason.

A real tragedy. If I was you I would sue Intrada.

YSH is an MAF release, not 'Special Collection', meaning I can take my time with purchasing this?

I do hope this isn't an April Fool's gag. I'm too happy about this.

I'm very excited for this release and have already purchased it. But I am A-OK with the fact that there are some people here that wish this release had used the film version, or combined vs separated tracks. That's cool. To each their own! What does bother me is that any time anybody says anything negative about a release, everybody freaks out and tries to get them banned. For crying out loud people, this isn't a propaganda website. The purpose of this message board is not to conduct peer-to-peer advertising for the labels. I want to hear all opinions, both good and bad.

The bloke in this thread who got banned and had his message deleted was banned not for criticizing the release, but for doing it in his usual insulting and trolling manner.

odd that one of the holiest grails of the last 30 years of film music does not have its own thread.

Have you really not been paying attention to Intrada releases at all in the past year and a half (or however long it's been)?

Awesome! For a long time lately, the Intrada releases have been one must-have and one "meh", at least for me.
But these both look great! Even if the Rozsa contains some previously released material, I want it just for HALF MOON STREET. Hopefully, it will also have lots of 5 GRAVES TO CAIRO and SAHARA or other new stuff.
And I can finally toss out the CDR of my old YSH LP.

I see the back cover of the Rozsa CD is now on Intrada's site. Disappointing 47' run time. Generous amount of MAN IN HALF MOON STREET, Prelude from JACARÉ, Overture for VALLEY OF THE KINGS, a 10' STRANGE LOVE OF MARTHA IVERS suite and a 7' SAHARA suite.
Still a must-have though.

47 minutes for a newly-recorded CD is rather poor.
Wouldn't be surprised if the old Polydor LPs they mention were as long, or longer!

On first thought, I would have felt they were longer too, Basil. But I just checked my CDRs of the Polydor LPs and they clock in at 38' 17", 45' 23", and 48' 01"

But they are still amazing albums and I would buy all three as CDs in a heartbeat.

If you read the post over at Intrada the contents of this CD were what would have been on Vol 4 of the Polydor series. I'll be buying this soon.
