I hope that one of the Tiomkin scores that can be rescued to some extent will be his music to 1951's THE WELL.

Another great interview, Doug!

I didn’t know you had produced THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD. I assume you’re referring to the Ryko release. Presumably no further audio work was done for the Varese reissue?
Yes, the original Ryko release. Don’t get me wrong, there was no acrimony. Ian Lace is a real gentleman. As for Varese, I don’t know what they might have done to the master that I provided, but I’m pretty certain they did not go back to the Darby tapes.


Varese's reissue has sharper, clearer sound that I personally prefer, but it's definitely Ray's master.

Ray's reconstruction of the damaged third portion of "The Great Journey" sequence ("Triumphant Return to Capernaum") is amazing work.

Good news about The Searchers remaster and its improved sound quality.
And very encouraging to hear of some potential Korngold offerings. About time too.

Very interesting piece -- what a challenge it has been for Faiola to not only salvage some of that music but to make it listenable! I was especially interested in this comment he made:

"I retain fully sustained ambience during the entire CD, never going to dead-track. The reason for this is simple – I create a performance disc, not an archive disc. I find it distracting to have archival sound suddenly vanish only to reappear in a couple or few seconds."

I've always been annoyed when old recordings, with abundant ambient sounds such as tape hiss and LP surface noise, suddenly switch to total silence, and then, seconds later when the music resumes, we hear all the noise again, with that "going to dead" simply accentuating the sometimes oppressive ambience. It's nice that some of the pros recognize this, and I'm sure that many of us who recorded LPs and tapes over the years (I started making tapes in early 1963) learned that lesson on our own.

“No, the Tiomkin project would actually be a pairing of two of his Harry Popkin scores, but until we sort out the materials I’d rather not tease readers with titles.”

An IMDB collaboration search for Popkin and Tiomkin gives just three titles: D.O.A., Champagne for Caesar and The Well.

D.O.A has been released therefore it would appear that the other two might be the pairing.

one of my dreams is to have the old album of
Friendly Persuasion, expanded with tracks from the Tiomkin archives. including the original Pat Boone vocals.

Any thoughts?
What still exists from this.
I know Warners has an up and down mag mono track.

Joe Caps: Re: "one of my dreams is to have the old album of Friendly Persuasion, expanded with tracks from the Tiomkin archives. including the original Pat Boone vocals."

I too have always loved the music from "Friendly Persuasion," and for years had a Pat Boone album on Dot that included the vocal version of the theme (also called "Thee I Love"), which was one of the reason I bought the CD of Boone's greatest hits. Wow -- that really takes me back to my childhood!
