Heath, I LOVE that Silva Screen CD you did (gulp) 20 years ago. With so little of Dudley Simpson's Baker era music surviving it has been a treat to take out and listen to from time to time (just listened to it again yesterday by coincidence). Took me 20 years to thank you, but better late than never. big grin

I got to listen to an updated version you did from Brain of Morbius (if I remember right) - sounded even closer to the original than your first version. I think you had in on your website at one point. Great stuff! Any chance that a few of your tracks made it onto the 11 CD set?

Verity!

PS Would snatch up an updated version of that CD if ever you get the inclination.


Thanks. smile I have updated a lot of it with vastly superior modern techniques. Sounds pretty good now - certainly a LOT better than it did back in the early 90s. The sample libraries are getting better literally by the month. So I'm always updating with the latest stuff as it comes out. However, it's up in the air as to whether these versions of the music will ever see the light of day. Various factors at play, some of them personal... but we'll see (I've been saying that for about 3 years now wink) One way or another, though, I'll wager that releases of Dudley's Who work won't end with the upcoming CD sets.

A few years ago Silva released a cd of early Tom Baker stuff of Dudley's but it was done with electronics, and was most unsatisfactory despite the great effort.

Quite right. I should know. I produced it. Ah well, that was then, this is now. Electronics and sample libraries have come a long long way since. BTW, it wasn't a few years ago, but twenty. Oh my god!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to these collections. The 11 disc-er seems particularly comprehensive.


Wow. So, are you the Heathcliffe Blair credited with that cd?


Yes, but with a little less hair these days.


Yes, I too have that cd, and it did get quite a lot of play back in the day.

I wonder, if you ever considered recording Dudley's music that didn't have orchestral instruments? My theory being that both his Radiophonic work for the Pertwees and the organ music he used for Time Lord based stories most notably Deadly Assassin, would suit your own electronic facilities more perhaps than stuff that was originally done by the string quartets etc?

Obviously I realise that the purpose of the released disc was to showcase the Tom Baker/Philip Hinchcliffe period, but then Deadly Assassin falls into that category. My own wishlist would have been The Three Doctors, Deadly Assassin, Invasion of Time and The Ribos Operation. The Pertwee one there is for me the best of the scores Dudley did for the Pertwee period, and all the others have that church organ sound so well duplicated in your selection from Pyramids of Mars.


I've done a few test tracks of the early 70s electronic scores. To my ears, they're as close to the originals as anyone could get at the moment. That's where purely electronic tonalities have a distinct edge over trying to emulate organic instruments. They were a lot of fun to do too. Personally, I really like Claws Of Axos and Day Of The Daleks from that period of Dudley's work. And yes, there are moments from Three Doctors that are great too!

BTW, I have some amazing church organ sound-sets these days that would really do justice to the likes of Deadly Assassin etc. But, again, will it ever see the light? Who nose. wink

So they're going home the long way round?

Wonderful news! I shall keep the front porch light on for the eventual release. big grin

I think that's the price for the 4 cd set, not the full collection in the tardis box.

It is

The 11 disc set won't be out until January.... and will definitely cost more that £12.49.

Is there any new Gold music in the box set not already released on the series CD's?

That's shockingly cheap!

I'm wondering which version of the theme is used for Golds music, just says TV version.

Definitely getting this if I can although I entirely agree that it's unlikely to last long and I imagine that it's unlikely to be the sort of thing that's so expensive (like the Elfman/Burton box) that people will be hugely put off buying it so demand will probably be quite high. I wonder if the register your interest emails will make them reconsider the number. After all, if LLL can sell far more of their Star Trek music set (albeit with slightly more standard packaging) then given the more current and worldwide doctor who fan base if think 1000 might be a bit low...

Too many sound effects for me really, though I can understand that Tristram Cary's and The Invasion soundscape does blur the line a little in this regard. But there's also a fair bit of repeated tracks here. There are a number of Murray Gold pieces we could have had that aren't already released. Girl in the Fireplace springs to mind straight away. Still, I suppose it is a sort of greatest hits collection...

Certainly the Paddy Kingsland suites make this set worth the price alone, not to mention the suite from Peter Howell's The Two Doctors. Been wanting that since they stopped doing the Doctor Who: the Music albums in the eighties. The score has a great theme for the Sontarans.

I've a feeling too that the Dudley Simpson selections here may well be all that exists from original in-house composer. I seem to remember Mark Ayres saying only a very small amount of his stuff survives. So sad.

Looks like I'll be ordering it then.. Though I might be hanging on to see what is on this big set in January.

You´re welcome.

Speaking of the 11CD set, there is of course the whole CD for the 9th Doctor, and although it´s not all orchestral music, I think it´s safe to say that it´s a buy for me. Let´s hope the other two Gold CDs in the set offer us more of his unreleased music as well.

I think 1000 is definitely way too low unless the price is really steep. I imagine it will go as fast as the Bernard Herrmann at Fox set if it is priced in the $200-300 range.
