All right, I'll ask about a couple of modern titles I like (by composers I usually don't) that would be timely...

first, is it confirmed that Varese controls Graeme Revell's Power Rangers score in perpetuity? This is clearly the best time to put out an expanded version, what with the new movie coming out.

Similarly there is a fourth DragonHeart apparently in production and it would be great if Randy Edelman's score could receive the complete treatment. Like many others, for me it was a gateway album into film music collecting, and I suspect an expanded version would have pretty great sales potential. What say you, MV? A possibility from LLL?

Seriously, a Revell ghost write that sounds like orchestral arse and a bad synth score from the mid 90s that resembles a hair commercial. Wow.

I guess Yavar goes for the aim low thing - who would ask for anymore Edelman! The worst major composer of all time, before Balfe turned up.

I have just a curious question. I still enjoy the TOS box to this day, there's hardly a week that goes by that I don't listen to a Trek score.

Forgive me if this has already been answered somewhere in some form, but how much of the 6,000 units has been sold to this date?

Probably 3500 or so

Dear MV,

Are there any plans for Tangerine Dream premieres or expansions (NOT including THE KEEP of course - where i'm aware that rights issues/various frustrations form a cluster cloud of dung)? I would love THE SOLDIER or a clean, properly mixed (i.e. not film stems) version of THE PARK IS MINE (my love still goes out to Silva Screen for releasing what they could at the time).

Best,
Burnie

That's most sad. I was thrilled with your superb release of Wavelength (one of the best you have done, ever) and was looking forward to more TD projects. Is TD stuff hard to release, or were the sales disappointing?

Any plans for Darkman (complete) by Danny Elfman?

After your wonderful Dead Again expansion, is there any other Doyle expansion LLL might do? Does Varese control all of the other Doyle scores they released in the 90s (Indochine, Carlito's Way, Needful Things, etc.)?

Even if so, I'm curious about the following three early masterpieces in particular:

Henry V (MGM film, original album on EMI so should be expandable?)

Into the West (this magical masterpiece of a score was a foreign film but released by Miramax in the US, so is Intrada the only possible source for an expansion, since Miramax is Disney?)

Frankenstein (Tristar Film, score released by a Sony label)

Some of those scores are too long as it is, Yavar, but from that thread the other day, everyone knows how important that ONE cue from Carlito's Way is to me. Watch this extremely graphic shootout scene.

Can you be more specific about which Doyle albums I listed you think are too long? I personally wouldn't say that about any Doyle album until Eragon in 2006 (which is just too many boring repetitions of that main theme...) but then usually I'm a complete score kinda guy, for the composers I love...

'Frankenstein' is one. I like the score, but it can become a bit of a slog to listen through. There seems a lot of music on that disc, and I can't imagine a huge demand for more of it.

I don't know, as I get older, I think everything that's not by Goldsmith or Williams is too long after about 45 minutes. I love Doyle's first 10 years like a sumbitch, but the only thing I really NEED to have longer is Carlito's Way (now that Dead Again has been expanded to include the version of the action music for Campbell Scott's weird karate cameo). Everything he did in that first 10 years is superb in its own way, but what exactly is missing that you can point to from any of those other scores that I'm maybe forgetting?

THIS. I'd include a lot of Goldsmith and Williams in there too.

I'm all for C&C to the extent that it's a sign of the viability of the form and people can get what they want, but I just don't have the attention span anymore for two hours of a single score. I almost always end up going back to some approximate version of the original album.

tl;dr you meddling kids

Yep, on my iPhone or whatever, I do it like those Bruce Marshall edits of complete scores. But unlike the way he does it, I actually pick the tracks that are good. Then when I play through my 35-40 minute version of something, I realize that I want more, so I go on my own message board and complain that a really crucial track was cut off.

That totally sounds like something you'd do.

Someone a few pages ago mentioned that there were rumors years ago about another Bear McCreary BSG release of stuff that didn't make the original season albums. I too would be up for that. Granted, I figure it would have happened by now. I've listened to those albums more than almost any others!

Bear himself said that was something he would like to do. That was a while ago, and he's been pretty busy since.
