Well, considering the Alien 3 comment from M.V., I'll go out on a limb and say that Goldenthal himself doesn't want Batman & Robin released. Pure speculation on my end, of course.

That isn't so. Goldenthal prepared a 50-minute program of score to be released in the wake of the songtrack, but as the latter didn't sell too well, the plans were scrapped.


Okay--perhaps I'm wrong, then.

It continues to intrigue me that whenever someone asks a question like the one above, i.e. "What famous scores will NEVER be released?", there is a considerable amount of people who automatically think about C&C (complete & chronological) releases, even if a perfectly fine soundtrack may already exist out there. That's where we're at right now. It's all a matter of interpretation, I guess, but I doubt you'd see replies like that back in the pre-niche label days.

Be that as it may, I guess you need to be really specific these days, i.e. point out that you're talking about scores that have had no release in any form whatsoever. That's the way I interpreted barryfan's original question. Maybe he can clarify.


Indeed I was refering to scores we do not have in any way, shape or form.

Yeah, that was what I figured. One probably needs to be THAT specific about it if one is to avoid all the 'expanded' suggestions. And sometimes, even that won't help. For many fans these days, it's almost as if a soundtrack "doesn't exist" unless it has every single second of music from the film.

Is Batman and Robin still an issue with Watertower?


Yeah, with the premiere Warners releases that have been coming out over the past year I thought this was no longer an issue...you think they'd be more willing to let you do it considering all the other Batman releases you've done, too.

Yavar


Actually, why Batman & Robin is in difficult status has nothing to do with WaterTower. I won't say anything beyond that.


It's got to be reuse fees. Massive orchestra and choir, for a first-time album release? Sounds costly.

Deal with it.

if they really want to release Dead Calm, Mad Max 2 etc there are elements, maybe not in it´s best form but still there is stuff out there, the only thing that must be solved is that coming to an agreement with the rightful owner.

I would love to see these released but I'm not holding my breath.

The Silencers
Murderers' Row
The Ambushers
The Wrecking Crew
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
Frenzy


I would pay money for those.

No, I'd rather whine about it.

Difficult, but "never say never releases":

ALIEN 3 (COMPLETE)
DAMNATION ALLEY (FULL)
OLD MAN AND THE SEA
BATMAN AND ROBIN
THE GODFATHER 1,2,3
BEVERLY HILLS COP 1,2,3
TOP GUN
SPIDERMAN 3
THE KEEP
BLADE RUNNER (PROPER COMPLETE RELEASE)
GHOSTBUSTERS 2
THE BAD SEED
SUGARLAND EXPRESS

To name a few...

I speak from experience. Hopefully one day a miracle will occur.

Oh my gosh -- so many of those are on my dream list. If I say "Never say never" three times, maybe my wish will come true?

Since you've put Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun (by Harold Faltermeyer) let's also add FLETCH to the list. Granted, a bunch of tracks have been released as an LP, but it sure could use a full CD release.

It would be interesting to know what is holding up those fantastic Faltermeyer scores. It can't be Faltermeyer himself, I would assume, nor a matter of orchestral re-use fees (obviously). Maybe the fine folks at LaLaLand knows?

An FSM Blade Runner.

Can't say anything with certainty, but let's say there's a glimmer of hope.

Elliot Goldenthal sued Warner Bros. over the score for "300." Warner Bros. is known to hold grudges. I'm not saying that's why there may never be a "Batman & Robin" score album, but it certainly didn't engender any goodwill.

On Lokutus' post: apparently the rejected TMNT score never got past demos and Beltrami and Kevin Manthei were taken off the project before it was recorded.

As for Scream, is there really much to expand on from the Deluxe Edition or is this yet another rant against Varese? I'm sure you mean Scream 2, of which only 15 minutes has been made available.

I saw THE HEARSE at the WESTBURY DRIVE IN THEATRE in New York- good little movie, nice score.
