I've got my eyes closed, and I'm imagining "Secret Invasion".

Please don't destroy this moment by any negativity.

Ron - I suspected this would happen if you moved your computer into your wine cellar.

Yeah, I'd kind of have moments like this back in the 70's--when I "got small."

By "meat" I was kind of hoping for a 2-CD set with the remains of various scores that haven't survived in complete form (or anything near complete form). Apparently, a lot of Friedhofer turned to vinegar before it could be saved. But I'm hopeful that there are some cherce bits...oh, yes, I am hopeful

I'd really love a "Rains of Ranchipur" and "In Love and War" release.

And if anything survives in stereo of "Boy on a Dolphin," well, my heart is racing just thinking of it.

In Love in War (sigh) John Morgan needs to reconstuct this one, sadly. Rains, the same way, John, do you have yor ears on?

Cool!

My e-mail is unavailable just now as some quirk in the system either isn't reading my password correctly, or I am not giving the correct password (I haven't entered it once since the first time I checked that box that says "Remember password." The password is still there and the box is still checked but it wants me to reenter and I either don't remember the password or my ISP has a glitch.)

We can chat here for a while until such time as I've gotten a new password.

John Morgan has DONE "The Rains of Ranchipur" -- it's on the Friedhofer disc with "The Adventures of Marco Polo", "The Lodger" and "The Seven Cities of Gold."

"The Rains of Ranchipur" is, IMO, one of Morgan's finest reconstructions, and the performance under the baton of William Stromberg is exceptionally fine.

True, it isn't the 20th Century-Fox orchestra under Lionel Newman's superb conducting, but it's damned good nonetheless.

By all means...let's discuss all things Hugo Wilhelm Friedhofer.

His was a voice unlike any other and there is far too little of it available in recordings, thus far.

I have to buy films he scored on DVD to hear his music the way it was meant to be heard, but I'd love to have some music-only CDs from those recording sessions -- and will gladly take whatever has survived the ravages of deterioration.
