The track title on the old composer promo is "AK, Colt and Mauser". It's possible the LLL release had to use what was written on an official cue list, and it was incorrectly written as "cold" on that list, so they were stuck with continuing the error.

That kind of thing has happened before, which is why on LLL's Rosewood CD, the second cue in track 5 is labeled "War Drums", even though the actual name Williams gave it was "War Dreams". They were forced to follow the official cue list where someone had incorrectly written it as "War Drums", since that's it's official published name.

It happens.

Or... it might be a cock-up. The font/colour of the "2:43" timing on disc 2, track 10 is wrong too. If it *was* a mistake I wonder if a re-print of the inlay is possible...?

But the sound, and the rest of the package, and signature, is awesome. As is The Blue Max!

Having played all The Blue Max, I can no longer see any pressing reason for a re-recording. The sound of the "Intended Score" (Disc One) of the LLL release is excellent and clearly the best yet.
Indeed, I find the loud and furious portions of the vintage Blue Max sound more comfortable to listen to than the dreadfully stressed loudest passages in the Prometheus/Tadlow re-recordings of Quo Vadis and Conan, so I'm very content with what LLL has achieved here.
10/10 for a superb remastering (Disc One).

I have two questions:

2. I'm thinking of ordering the Blu-ray THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT in addition to THE BLU-MAX Blu-ray. Is it a good movie?.....(I saw part of it many years ago on tv and have forgotten most of what I saw).


absolutely! check some reviews... Cimino's first movie, a buddy movie with a western feel Eastwood was first intended to direct, with Jeff Bridges as his sidekick. Very 70's, very good.

If I remember correctly, I think either MV or possibly Mike Matessino has come out and said that all the track titles used on their (LLL) releases are the ones that the cue sheets call for.

Truly wonderful news. Thankyou, Basil.

SPIELBOY:

Thanks for the info. My only memory of the movie that stands out is the end where they used the cannon for the heist.

Please I would like to know is all music from Intrada version contained in La-La Land 2CD?

There are some differences in duration of the tracks in Jason LeBlanc's comparison survey. So it seems there are some different versions of music.

Thank you for the answer in advance.

Blue Max CD1 is astonishingly good considering the 1960's time frame. I speak as someone who has the Mainstream LP and many CD releases since. This one is amazing....support LLL and BUY IT NOW!!!

Blue Max arrived today and what a revelation it is.

This is the best ever sounding version of the Blue Max ever released.

I had both the Sony and the Intrada versions, but the new La La Land release shoots them down in flames


Why should the sound quality of these two releases be actually miles apart? Did La La Land have access to different source material?

Not for sound quality reasons, but personally, I'd be all up for a recording by the Tadlow team of this score. THE BLUE MAX (Varese Edition) was one of my first soundtrack CDs. I'd be thrilled to see a new recording of this score.

This is indeed a very good question, to which I would like to see a reasoned response from LLL or anyone who has the info? It's not all that long ago that the Intrada release came out.

Its very simple -- different engineers and producers do things differently

Folks ! our very own La La Land veteran producer and editor Neil S Bulk talks at length about his contributions to the making of The Abyss and The Blue Max sound track reissues. It was an honor and a first opportunity to interview Neil S Bulk. (Thanks again) and also to Christopher Coleman for hosting the interview on his website. Enjoy.
