Nope. smile

Or are you asking what "period" the film is from?



Well, if that's what it was, I'd definitely dance a jig! Especially if it also had a comma and a colon in the bonus section.


I would do any soundtrack with a colon. This one doesn't have a colon, however, although I tried to insert one but was caught.

I can say this: A two-CD set for a one-CD price.



OK, now I'm sold!

From the 50s? 60s?


Nope, but we have many, many releases coming from those decades.




Great to see many forthcoming cds from the 50s and 60s! smile

This cd must be from the 70s, no doubt about it! smile

In the end Bruce, it does not matter that much if people saw Rising Sun, but yes, I think lots of people did not see it, although $60 million domestic gross was not awful in that day.

I have tons of scores for films that I really dislike, or I have never seen at all.

Psycho 2 is a fine example of a fine score that I would like expanded and given proper treatment (HINT HINT) that is a terrible film that hardly anyone watched.


Rising Sun spent ten weeks at the top of the box-office chart and its worldwide gross is considerably higher than the 60 million domestic - it was a hit. But I completely understand there are many who don't care for it - I didn't care for it that much back then, but it's kind of aged well and seems better now.


Ah, 107 million global is not a dud, not really a monster hit either. Any picture that starred Sean Connery but still gets beaten by Cool Runnings and Grumpy Old Men in the box office has some issues.

And Robin Williams in a dress made $219 million domestic and $441 global. I mean Sean Connery must have retreated to his island shaking his head.

I agree that the rather slow meticulous pacing of that picture seems better now, maybe because we get so little of it. It is well crafted.

Yeah, hello----if you read the first post here by Bruce;

"A CD release of the score did not present it in the best light, with a short running time and several pieces not by Takemitsu."

JohnnyG was referring to the forthcoming 2-CD release.

I just couldn't wait another week and had to order this one. I coupled it with True Grit. It always gets on my nerves when something with just a 1000 copies run is selling quite well. This Takemitsu for me is essential and I really appreciate Bruce sticking out his head here, perhaps it isn't an obvious seller. On the other hand, quality always sells. Perhaps Takemitsu's music isn't well known because his film scores are hard to find, or just too expensive for many (the Complete Takemitsu Edition boxes). When this sells out it will be just another expensive Takemitsu-title that will be hard to find.

His classical pieces are much easier to find (and cheaper) and well worth a listen too. He did amazing scores for a huge number of Japanese films and apparently was a very nice, friendly, open and intelligent man. And he was admired and praised by people and musicians the world over.

Is it one score from the 70's that has appeared in a previous CD version by a composer that has appeared on a Kritzerland title before ?

I really enjoyed the newest Kritzerland CD, Bruce.

I happen to be a big fan of Kaufman and still own the original CD with some of the music by Takemitsu, so this was a wonderful release- plus you got the music on the disc right!. Thanks so much for sharing.

The 70s in incorrect. And you're sort of right on the second guess.

That was FAST! Glad you liked it - I have to say, I've played it non-stop for months now.

Is this is a score by a composer who has not appeared on Kritzerland before, but is conducted by someone who has featured on Kritzerland?
A 2CD set with the composer-conducted original on one CD, and someone else conducting the album on the second CD?

I will say this release involves two composers, one of whom has appeared on Kritzerland. One score has been out, one hasn't. I can say no more - at this time, oh, no, I can say no more - at this time smile

Are these two scores for the same film, with both used and rejected versions?
