So Basil, your calculations of price vs. CD length were there to expose a statement of Intrada's not about price that you failed to reference? As a rhetorical choice, that's... interesting.

Hence the ending I used... "just saying".
Whenever someone says "just saying", it always means they have something else in mind.

To give Basil his due, that is kind of an odd explanation of Intrada's. Are they so into nostalgia? I thought the playing time of an LP was/is a limitation rather than something to be aspired to. Maybe Intrada should have gone the whole hog and issued this release on vinyl.

Or provided two CDs of twenty minutes each, so a "side change" could be carried out to complete the illusion.

I tend to agree with Mr. Basil.

I found their excuse for releasing a short CD ludicrous.

And, as previously pointed out, they really didn't need to say anything.

But this does sound more like a self-justified excuse.

As if they're saying, "We know you're going to buy it anyway; so what's the difference if it's shorter?"

If the adherence to the Polydor paradigm were real, they could just as easily released enough music for 2 Polydor albums.

I'm still waiting to see if we're ever going to get anything from: THE MACOMBER AFFAIR, A WOMAN'S VENGEANCE, KISS THE BLOOD OFF MY HANDS, CRISS CROSS, A WOMAN OF THE TOWN, or SUNDOWN, all of which are excellent scrores.

JACARE', meanwhile, is a longish score, though, as I recall, the volume is lowered, and the sound quality garbled, so that much of it is not presented well. The film, itself, is a documentary about the titular South American wild animal, narrated by then well-known adventurer Frank Buck. I have a copy of it on VHS, but haven't watched it in years.

Mixed feelings on this release it seems, but I will definately buy with Young Sherlock Holmes soon when I have the money! I'm curious, what are these Rozsa Polydor recordings people mention? I don't think I'm familiar with them but maybe it's because they have not come out on CD [or am I wrong there?]?

I am very glad to have a new Rozsa recording. While I prefer a longer presentation, we are lucky to have the Intrada release at all. My thanks to Mr. Fake and company!

Sorry about the double post.

Curiously, the mixed feelings on this release are depressingly quiet on the merits of the CD.

We're treated to laundry lists of increasingly obscure music rather than a sense of wonderment that this was recorded and released at all.

Absurd complaints about Intrada instead of rightful celebration of their efforts.

Thank god for the "ignore" button.

If you love Rozsa, it's a must buy. If you're interested in hearing less familiar Rozsa, it's a must buy. If you want to support these highly speculative efforts to record this music for a tiny audience, it's a must buy.

And boy do I wish the Polydor albums were available on CD. I never encountered them in the LP years, and I'd love to hear them now.
