Limited Collector’s Edition of 1000 units.


Quartet Records and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer present a remastered, remixed, slightly expanded edition of this masterful John Barry noir score for the thriller Masquerade. The 1988 film was directed by Bob Swaim and starred Rob Lowe, Meg Tilly, Kim Cattrall and Doug Davant.

The story is about a recently orphaned and wealthy heiress, Olivia, who really hates her scheming stepfather. Olivia finds love with a young yacht racing captain, Tim, who isn't completely truthful with her. When the two run into a problem, the local cop, who happens to be an old friend of Olivia's, seems to be turning a blind eye to incriminating evidence.

John Barry returned to the genre of the passionate thriller that he had already explored in Body Heat, offering an intense, bittersweet tour de force in his signature melodic style, with a memorable love theme and long suspense passages.

Previously released by Prometheus Records in a limited edition in 2002 and long out of print, this new release includes around five minutes of previously unreleased material. Produced by Neil S. Bulk, remixed and mastered by Mike Matessino from the ½" 3-track original masters courtesy of MGM, the CD includes a 12-page full-color booklet with informative liner notes by John Takis.

I didn't buy the Prometheus so I am pondering this one. I seem to be in the middle of a Barry catch-up at the moment. Quartet's White Buffalo, Roundtable's Walkabout, now possibly this.

I guess the owners of the Prometheus will be interested to know if the bonus five minutes is worth it or not. Perhaps Neil or Mike might chime in with more details.

The movie's pretty good as well, written by Dick Wolf pre-"Law & Order."

It's an exaggeration to say there's five minutes of extra music, it's about two-and-a-half.

But that's not the reason to buy this edition—and that's not the sales headline.

The primary reason is that the Prometheus is out of print.

The secondary reason is that the Prometheus disc didn't sound that good. The new master, prepared by Mike Matessino, promises to sound better and that's my reason for double dipping.

The quality of the horn line is the make or break factor in this film's main theme and for some reason it sounded fragile at times on the Prometheus disc. I keep willing it to sound better. I hope it does this time.

As an aside I'm sure most of you know that at least two themes in this score are recycled from the ill-fated musical The Little Prince.

Cheers

The Quartet info page on their website says the extra music is three minutes. Could this have been corrected from the initial statement?

Anyway, not having the Prometheus (which is available on Amazon for US$90), I am going to order this Quartet release.

It really looks a fantastic release it really does - dam, saw-see time - but as before Russia House - Silence of the Lambs I passed happy what I got again, still its great news to see the on going romance for Barry, well done Quartet another winner, thanks.

The extra tracks appear to be 'Masks' and 'Tim and Brooke Break Up'.
Oh... and the alternate.

As with Mike's Murder disc. the piano being prominent in the Main Title was barely audible. Hoping maybe Quartet can rectify that in the future if they can?
Might have to give Masquerade a watch now, not seen it in years.

Track 02 - Graduation, also appears to be extended. On the Prometheus it's just under 1 minute. I listened to this one recently and never had any issue with how it sounds.

My main takeaway from this film was how perfectly matched the material and the composer were. It's a beautiful score, a must for Barry fans. Great to see this come out remastered.

I'm still deciding whether to buy ... I enjoy the score so much (as with most of Barry's scores) but do wonder whether Eur20+ has a better home.

I've bought multiple copies of many of his scores over the last 45 years ... and these days I can go nearly three years between plays - I print lists of albums not played in the last three years ... that said, strangely there's rarely a John Barry album included smile - so perhaps, on this occasion, I shall stay with my Prometheus copy.

So says the man who has 18 recordings of Beethoven's Symphony #5, Op.67 smile

the quartet records website is driving me nuts..I wanted to order this , but it's not working.
I had forgotten my pwd..well, just do the "forgotten pwd" thing, no sweat, right? WRONG!
The link they send you goes to a blank screen with no fileds to fill...you try to cut and paste the URL, it goes to the same blank screen...I tried like 10 times...ridiculous.
