My two grails from Varese at the moment would be Robocop 2 and Demolition Man. One can dream...

Assuming each score would fit on one disc, I'd love to see them knock out two birds with one stone and do a RoboCop 2/3 double album.

I haven't calculated the exact amount of music missing from 2 (other than: a lot), but according to a certain unmentionable, the complete score for 3 runs 69 minutes, so that should fit on one CD

FYI - another update to make to this list is "Dead Again," which was re-released (remastered/expanded) by La La Land Records:

What would be the point for them, as opposed to doing individual DEs for them?

Plus, a lot of people (me included) would be pissed at having to get the Leonard Rosenman score with our Poledouris...

Now what *would* be great to get as a set from Varese is Free Willy 1-3 complete (they own Eidelman's third score in perpetuity).

I don't thing people would be as annoyed to get a third disc of great Eidelman along with their 2 discs of great Poledouris...

You are absolutely right (I remember wanting to make that update to this post when the release came out but I forgot to) and thanks again to LLL for putting out that GREAT release...I wonder what other 90s titles Varese let slip though the legal cracks...didn't LLL also put out a Goldenthal score that Varese was though to control?

I was thinking that LLL or Intrada would release Free Willy 1-2 as a double disc set?

I should stop thinking............ wink

Ah, one I had neglected in my original post anyway, but awesome nonetheless!

I wonder if there are any others LLL can get. At least they might reissue Basic Instinct complete if the Prometheus ever sells out, this time with the unreleased film versions of cues (incl. the finale) and hopefully Jim Titus packaging -- I know that'd be enough for me to double dip!

I absolutely hate the fact that Varese owns a bunch of great titles in perpetuity! They just don't release enough of these titles within a timely basis. Shame, shame Varese!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I certainly hope they'd release expanded editions faster or license them out to other labels to do properly...but I'm still grateful for the occasional ones they give us!

Yavar

P.S. About Free Willy...getting the first two by Poledouris from Intrada or LLL would be great, but since I'm an Eidelman fan as well as a Poledouris fan I'd be even more happy to see Varese tackle all three (they control the third in perpetuity and I sorta doubt they'd release a DE of it on its own) in a Karate Kid style box.

Carlito's Way would be near the top of my list of desired expansions.

I updated *my* wish list in the first post to reflect the two John Williams titles that MV recently said were controlled by Varese in perpetuity (Stanley & Iris and maybe Presumed Innocent).

Hoping to see some of these great titles expanded soon. When Robert Townson posted about Shirley Walker on Facebook some weeks back, a lot of people gave him kudos for putting out Memoirs of an Invisible Man, but also greatly encouraged him to put out a Deluxe Edition of it...I think he may have liked a comment or two along those likes so I'm going to choose to be hopeful!

Our Man Flint & In Like Flint please. I have my homemade In Like Flint CD from the isolated music track of the Blu-ray (& I was thinking about doing the same thing with Our Man Flint, but the Blu-ray sold out!). It does seem like an obvious release, it is, Jerry Goldsmith.

No they haven't.

The film recordings are controlled by Varese. The re-recorded score, a different beast in ways, was issued by Intrada.

I totally agree. Also, too bad about missing out on Our Man Flint, because IMO it's a much more consistently good score than the sequel. I recently compared my programs from the isolated scores of these two with Varese's CD of excerpts, and I'm sorry to say that the Blu-ray isolated scores aren't even complete. They preserve film edits for certain cues that are longer on the Varese CD, and presumably some of the many cues that Varese didn't include on their album are similarly edited on the isolated score to match their use in the film. There also are potentially fully- or partially-unused cues that were recorded but didn't survive on the tapes Varese had on hand for their 90s album. So even with the "complete isolated scores" on the Blu-rays (technically correct, in the same sort of way that The Phantom Menace two disc set was) we don't have the complete music Goldsmith wrote and recorded.

Even more sadly, the same goes for his brilliant score to The Other -- the 20+ minute single-track suite included by Varese on the end of their album for The Mephisto Waltz has sections of music that are NOT included on the roughly 40 minute isolated Blu-ray track, and there may very well be other recorded music not included on either.
