The major soundtrack labels of the world are in a bitter battle to release the next coveted "holy grail" film score. Along the way they are unearthing long forgotten masterpieces many of which have been out-of-print for decades or never before available to the public. While they meticulously toil and sweat over each cherished title, we sit back and reap the rewards of their bruises and wounds.

For the past five or six years, movie studios have flung opened their vaults allowing an avalanche of monumental scores to flood the small, yet noble, market of film music enthusiasts. If you are one, you've no doubt felt the tug on your bank account not to mention the time required just to keep up with it all.

I like that!

BITTER BATTLE. big grin

Damnit damnit DAMNIT! I am dead BROKE! frown

Okay, no need to panic... going to listen to the sound clips again, even if I can't possibly afford this... rats!


Edit: Alright, there, I bought one! And Independence Day, too...

My parents are SO gonna be pissed off at me, but I don't care. If there's one title I CAN'T miss out on again, it's Poseidon Adventure. razz

Take it from me, it's real easy to get yelled at. After it's over, well- it's over!

here are your stock answers:

I'M SORRY!

IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN

I WAS IN A BIND AND I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE

I PROMISE! I'LL PAY YOU BACK

THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING

Hehe... thanks for the encouragement, guys.

I suppose I can clear my mind of having to worry about whether or not to get these titles now, because it's a done deal!

Perhaps I can take a good break from La-La Land buys for a while now, with MV's baby coming... (good luck to you on that, by the way!)

Simply Remember to take my advice!

I've been listening to this for a week now. It's a side of Williams I'd like to see again - small scale (despite the size of the ship), personal, suspenseful with some of his best "modern" writing. I can't imagine how the alternate Main Titles would have felt in the film - perhaps there was an earlier conception of the titles sequence that played on suspense more.

A huge thanks to MV and Mike for going all out (I avoided saying "overboard") for this release.

It was from an era of his output that I don't think we will ever see again. Top notch work. I lost interest in his scores after some point a decade or so later.

And Nick Redman - without whom this release would not have been possible. All three deserve huge credit.

Nick Redman is fantastic. I especially love the work that he does in preserving and presenting anything Jerry Fielding. I love his choices in album producing, even if many others would shamefully prefer to call him out on it instead.

Go Nick!

Yes, Nick too, absolutely. My oversight. I can't even begin to imagine how many discs I've got that he had a hand in.

Despite the bitching on the other thread,this is a great release. Congratulations to all involved for their hard work in making it see the light of day for a 2nd time!

… but in the end we still found that it was best to use the mono source for a few tracks and to process them in a synthesized stereo …

So does this mean the stereo tape was ruined? By the way steb74 wrote something of interesting:

… Do you have any idea what elements were used for the special edition DVD?
The reason I ask is that after watching the DVD again yesterday, the Main Title sounded to me like genuine stereo and also in good shape, so I was just wondering if there was a particular reason why that version wasn't used, or was it even considered, etc …


So? frown

Thanks


Nicola

It's still up for order at La-La Land. Beware: it's sold out, but it isn't! It's la-la-logic. wink

I knew La-La Land had it, but I meant that w/ less than 100, I doubt SAE will be getting more or any new copies in.

This disc is a fantastic production, with and informative book, the monaural tracks well-integrated into the body of the score and overall better sound than the FSM disc. I have nothing but gratitude for all involved in the production of this album (and Independence Day, which is finally freed from the shackles of the previous album's limited running time).

That said, I do believe the copy for this one was… unfortunately worded. Hopefully future announcements will be a bit more clear.

Either way, the presentation of the score is much punchier than before, well worth the upgrade.

I put in an order through Amazon last night. Hope it comes through. Worked last week with Jaws 3-D.
