So, Number 250 is 'The Wild Bunch'! Good luck to all those who like it but I'm afraid it leaves me cold.

For me the big quesrtion now is - will we be getting 'The Ten Commandments' from someone? Judging by the comment made when someone asked if the score was to be re-recorded by Tadlow it seemed that a release of the original soundtrack was 'in the wind'. I certainly hope so as, for my money, this score ranks as one of the best Biblical scores ever.

It must be, sort of, round about, time for the next Varese Club lot. I fully expect The Ten Commandments & the complete remastered Flint scores. Ha, maybe not, we shall see!

hopefully a release will include unused music bonus tracks such as "The Eleventh Commandment: Dont Kvetch So Much."

Yes, we will...


Doug @ Intrada just posted this today...

You'll be getting a spectacular presentation of The Ten Commandments before too long, so don't worry. When you hear it all, you'll elevate it from "a fine score" to one of the greatest ever. But in the meantime, definitely enjoy FSM's spectacular release for The Wild Bunch. Another one of the greatest ever.

Be nice is it was Intrada, but it might also be coming from Varese or La-La Land (or some other label), and Doug is just "in the know."

Looking forward to it (and hope it is Intrada, and they mimic FSM's BEN-HUR presentation).

I just can't see Doug Fake whetting your appetite about this release & calling it spectacular if it was anything other than an Intrada release...but I could be wrong!

Doug is obviously confirming that it's coming from Intrada. The only question is what will it contain? A definitive, complete set a la BEN-HUR, would be; the previously unreleased original tracks (hopefully all, or mostly stereo), the original mono album, the original stereo album and the 1966 rerecording which would give us around 5 hours in total. A nice 5 disc set. smile

Indeed, it would be nice if they included the LP re-recording Bernstein did, remastered...but since they omitted the one for Masada I'm prepared to settle for the complete original score if that's what we can get...which will be FANTASTIC!.

I agree completely. I was disappointed that FSM chose this title for their last release. I was hoping for something that had never been released before. I have the single disc of this score manufactured by SAE years ago and that's enough for me.

Will be saving up some money for this one starting with the money I was saving for #250 that I am not purchasing.

Over in another thread here, it was Kimmel or Fritzpatrick, as I recall, that said the tapes for the re-recordings were being pulled, too.

I just hope it doesn't go overboad with a little book, a seperate CD of re-recorded love themes by other composers, and the kitchen sink.

I know some people love these exhaustive box sets of duplicated material. And I acknowledge both that all recordings are worthy for different reasons and that music lives through interpretation and there is no one true performance.

That said, I find such sets a real slog. Maybe I simply don't have the time in my life to listen to four or so different performances of the same piece. By the time yet another minor variant of the same piece comes on, my listening is no longer enjoyable but somehow dutiful. "I will get through all of this!"

Luckily for those who crave such a set, I have no say in the matter.

Agreed. "I am Spartacus!" "No I am Spartacus!" Yeah, I have held off on that one hoping to find is used somewhere for less than half price because I do not need the extras, just score.

...Hmmm. No, it needs a Ben-Hur type release; the full score (which is unreleased and would take two discs), plus the MCA CD remastered, plus the original Mono Dot release, plus alternates. Might come in at 4 cds, 5 max.

It's that category of scores that cries for delux deluxing, and FSM set the mark with BH (and the price point).

Well, you can get just the mono score part of that set (discs 2 & 3) from Itunes for about $30 if that's all you want. Unless of course you don't like downloads.

Doug Raynes is right in that the thing would require at LEAST 5 CDS in fact, so I don't imagine people should get orgasmic over such a proposition: it might not materialise.

The OST would presumably need presentation as two CDs. The Dot 2LP is a third, the later stereo release now on MCA would be the fourth, and the 1966 reperformed UA/Sunset half hour album (which is good when heard in proper sound, and quite different in some ways) would bring this to four and a half discs.

As regards extras, who knows what exists? If anything is still around, then probably everything is, and I'd imagine that Elmer Bernstein's various spec demos for the dances which he composed first before Young exited might be extant. All things considered, it'd probably take six, unless the 1966 album was omitted.

It's a bit much to expect all that, and maybe unfair on Intrada. We shouldn't be spoiled.

Yes, I forgot the UA album. 5 discs for sure.

...Unless there are no alternates (unlikely, but possible), then 4.
