Just arrived home this morning after a 2 month stay in the philippines and my first job is to contribute to this exiting project,well done James,I knew you would come through for us,let this be the start,not just for KING OF KINGS,but for other scores that need restoration.
Good luck! As for me, I'm saving my nickels up for the unannounced (and possibly fictional) LLL Matessino/Botnick re-mastered release of the Rhino KofK OST 2-disc set... Well, one can hope!
Sure, put your nickels toward what might never be, but put your thousands toward what can be with sufficient generosity. After all, at your age what else are you going to do with it? Wine, women and song? Much too late, mate.
I'm really undecided. Not on the donation itself, because I will surely do one, but on the sum to be donated. Had it been something by Goldsmith (Planet of the Apes, Damnation Alley, ...) I would definitely have made an offer that would allow me to attend some sessions in Prague... It would be a dream! And among other things I have never been to Prague!
I'm in! Soooo excited and happy to support James in this endeavor!
As I expected there was an initial burst of enthusiasm and of pledges....now pledges have slowed down...let's hope they pick-up as still 47 days to go! So if you love great classic film music please support this endeavour as the whole project will cost in the region of £80,000...which is what BEN-HUR cost...so I still have to fund the extra £40,000 myself

I, too, am happy to support this fabulous project! Looking forward to a great new recording!
But wouldn't you know it. Now that real support is important, the Bobbsey twins have gone completely silent.
Just sent some money over. If everyone of us sends even a little we can really be of assistance!! I like the fact that I can put some money where my passion is and not just sit back waiting for our heroes (the label guys) to do all the work!!

I'd say we all expected that. First 10k, sleigh ride down the hill; next 30k, hard slog up the mountain. There's no doubt in my mind that this small community won't do it alone; we need to spread the news well beyond these borders and even hope that some rich guy or gal chips in a 5k or 10k here or there. Obvious, sure, but I thought I'd say it anyway. Anyone know any 'personalities' for whom 10k is chump change?
