Just got Bandolero! and Willard today....Bandolero! spinning right now. Speaking as someone who has too many releases of this score (kidding!) - starting with the horrifying Project 3 LP, edel CD, etc.... I think this is even a nice improvement over the last release (which was not bad). Recommended. Don't miss it if you are a fan.
Where is Alex North's original 1971 WILLARD score?
Where is WILLARD, period? A big hit in the summer of 1971, and a sequel, BEN, released the next year, but these titles have never been released on home video. There must be a rights issue in there someplace.
Anyway, I ordered THE CHALLENGE, not just because I want it, but also because LA LA Land deserves kudos for giving fans what they want. And I also ordered BANDOLERO! even though I have the Intrada release from 2004. Playing it just the other day I noticed there was some annoying hiss. I'll be very interested to hear how much the sound quality has been improved.

Judging as best one can from the clips, the noise is the same as before.
Everytime I see WILLARD I say to myself where is the solid 71 version with a nice score by ALEX NORTH.Anybody have any idea if it is lost or just lying around collecting dust. I don't mean the film, I mean the soundtrack.
WILLARD (1970) WAS released on VHS early in the VHS era by Prism Entertainment, but never made it to subsequent VHS releases or DVD. I have no idea why. It's a classic! I hope somebody will correct that.
