For me I'd love a Tadlow/Intrada Maurice Jarre recording of Jesus of Nazareth and another Jarre score.



But everyone can relax, we all know this is new recordings of FLUPPY DOGS and EARTH STAR VOYAGER.

CAPE FEAR and ON DANGEROUS GROUND?


or possibly just one of those combined with THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH?


That trio would be a dream.

Isn't licensing less of an issue if you are doing a new recording. Rather than reusing the originals. Studios own the recordings not the dots.

I gather the issue is that the music (or at least some of it) hasn't been 'published' before so you can't just throw a small amount of money to record a 'cover'
It's a weird system that I only know the surface details of.
It's interesting that you don't actually need permission for a 'cover', but do for any previously 'unpublished' music, and I believe it's why that Moonraker Kickstarter ended up being cancelled.

Very exciting news!

Andy mentioned Jungle Book (Miklos Rozsa)... now that would be amazing.
However, any title they decide to put in all the effort of re-recording, will be more than amazing.

Bravo Intrada! Its all very interesting and exciting. Personally I would love to see a recording of Goldsmith's (and others) The Walton's scores. Friedhofer's Vera Cruz and George Antheil's The Pride and The Passion (to name but two) would be great also. But we will know soon what's what!

If say, Alex North's Magnum Opus of a score, Spartacus was ever considered for a complete re-recording, who would be considered to be the most suitable conductor or indeed composer behind the baton ?.
Jerry Goldsmith would have been right up there to command North's complex score, and a great shame that there was never a 'kick-start' programme when he was with us.

On Dangerous Ground would be a wonder. The FSM CD from the acetates is a great preview, but it remains a preview. Imagine that opening, which is like the shower scene but even punchier, in full orchestral sound!

Why keep the titles a secret? It's not something that can be ordered now, but just the opposite. Bizarre.

And it does say 'titles'

I hope one of them is “The Cranes Are Flying”


Good grief! One of my favorite movies, yet I'm so dazzled by the lighting, cinematography and character warmth that I forget the music. Yes, that's lovely stuff, lovely and a little wild.

I don't think so. They want to have their Kickstarter page ready, with a video and all, to get people excited and contributing. If they announced today "Next week sometime, we'll have a Kickstarter page up for our proposed recording of the complete The Batman score," by the time we could actually donate, it would be old news, and they'd probably lose some contributions.

For a while there I thought I could voice my feelings without having you preach to me and perhaps you could accept my faults without you being a self styled know it all.

Feelings are: disappointment, anger, sadness, happiness, excitement, etc. What you wrote is not a feeling: "Don't you know people who love that kind of music are all supposed to be dead. I guess what Doug would like to do has little weight."

That's an insult to Doug Fake and Intrada. It was needlessly rude and antagonistic towards some of the only people still sometimes putting out Golden Age film music, and won't achieve anything good for anything you want. It was only sarcastic and hurtful. I'm not preaching and this isn't about accepting faults. I simply ask: Why did you post it? What did you hope to achieve by writing that?

I see that both of us will never find a way of getting along. So be it.

We get along fine when you're championing Miklos Rozsa or other composers we both admire. But yeah when you outright suggest Doug Fake isn't in charge at Intrada, you're going to get some pushback. I was pretty gentle with mine.

How do you know Intrada's pairing isn't your favorite composer, Miklos Rozsa? He was the second place winner after Goldsmith, years back when Intrada ran their poll of titles they were considering for following up Dial M for Murder:
http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7967

It sure seems likely that if it's not Joan of Arc (4th place), it's going to be be either Rozsa or Herrmann (2nd and 3rd place). Both of those are composers you like, right? Both composers for "people who love that kind of music" that you joke are "all supposed to be dead"? You seem to be certain that Intrada's new Kickstarter is not going to be of Golden Age film music, just because it isn't Joan of Arc. That makes no sense.

Why do you spend your time and energy putting out so much anger and negativity in advance of the title(s) even being revealed? It's not good for this board and I'm sure it's not good for you, either. Why not just hold your negativity a bit until you actually know the title(s) at least, rather than feeling like you have to offer a mea culpa later?

2 Miklos Rozsa WW2 scores to cover both areas of conflict:
SAHARA and BLOOD ON THE SUN
or
2 Miklos Rozsa film noir scores like
BRUTE FORCE
THE NAKED CITY
or
2 Miklos Rozsa epic scores like
THE FOUR FEATHERS
JUNGLE BOOK


These are GREAT suggestions, Cody. I would love it if any of these were done. Another I'd suggest is Rozsa's second Oscar-winning score, A Double Life. That's great music and has hardly been released at all.

Well if I could voice my feelings; it's a minor miracle that any old score is being re-recorded now, I thought those days were well behind us.

Exactly, Rameau.

Unlikely, but Waxman's The Spirit of St. Louis or Newman's (and friedhofer's) The Mark of Zorro.

How about Barry's They Might Be Giants, perhaps along with Eleanor and Franklin?

Bennett's Nicholas and Alexandra?

Roots (Jones and Fried)?

Some other 70s mini-series?

The former survives in complete form (and I suspect in quite good sound). LLL had it in the works for some time, along with a complete edition of Waxman's Sayonara. I hope they still happen that way. I'm not sure any other Waxman re-recordings are likely after Tadlow's Taras Bulba apparently sold so poorly. frown

The Mark of Zorro is a much better candidate IMO because the original recording is confirmed lost. I've been recommending it to John Morgan and William Stromberg for years! Even though Newman and Friedhofer don't usually tend to sell super well, it's ZORRO and a famous/beloved film. I'm sure it would do better sales-wise than almost any other Newman or Friedhofer re-recording (even if each of them has done scores which are even better than this one).

True, but this is like giving us clues without giving clues. Roger seems excited. I guess we should be too?

I wonder if Intrada will include the album presentation for $10 more— $15 more if you want it remastered.

I love it. We could create a program in the style of an album if one had been released at the time of the film's release for a second disc. And charge $12 more. Perfect. Thanks for the idea!
