These have been reissued by Intrada.


Just to clarify Justin's helpful post, those were fresh recordings done for the LP albums around the time of the films (much like Justine or the second Omen score (among others), for which you probably noticed Varese included two separate recordings on their Deluxe Edition: the film recording and the album recording). They had never been officially released on CD before because Varese's album of the scores in the 90s was the premiere of the "original soundtrack recordings" which they noted on their packaging I believe, to distinguish them from the previous albums which were separately recorded.

A lot of people do think the LP recordings released on Intrada do sound better and have some superior arrangements to the film counterparts of cues, but on the other hand the film scores were much longer and had much, much more great unique music beyond 25 minutes worth included on each LP.

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.


These have been reissued by Intrada.



No they haven't.

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


Yup, & those albums were great, & the Intrada CD sounds fantastic, & has gone straight into my desert island disc list. The original scores do sound quite different (esp the electronic stuff) & should be released, the music is witty & catchy, & sixties Goldsmith is the best (in my book).

I've updated my original post to remove the following titles which Varese has released in complete form this past year: Gremlins 2, Chain Reaction, Outbreak, and Back to the Future 3!

On top of that they have expanded as much as possible from surviving elements (some complete) ALL of the Nightmare on Elm Street scores. They weren't on my list because I'm not a big horror buff, but I must admit I'm intrigued by the number of composers I like working on this series, many of which were indeed held by Varese in perpetuity so they were the only ones who could put out a box like this.

Varese has been doing a fantastic job this past year! I really think they're back, probably in part due to their excellent hire of Peter (drivingmissdaisy).

I can't wait to see what gets crossed off my wish list next...on Facebook Robert Townson did "like" a comment I made suggesting a DE of Shirley Walker's Memoirs of an Invisible Man, and more recently did the same when I suggested a DE of Doyle's score to Carlito's Way, the big action cue of which was apparently recently performed live to picture...

Time for another bump, due to the latest wonderful Varese batch!

They have just given us:
The Whales of August (Alan Price) -- An encore edition, it's unknown to me whether this brief album was incomplete or not, or whether Varese controlled rights to the title anyway. A wonderful underrated gem to reissue, however!

Bloodline (Ennio Morricone) -- Expanded from the earlier CD issue (paired with Red Sonja) from 26 years ago to the length of Varese's original LP. I had thought this might end up in their LPtoCD series, but I'm glad it got a standalone release as it's very good music. It is unknown whether Varese controlled rights and Bruce Kimmel (who got this release for Varese back in the day) said in the other thread that he was going to look into whether there was any music not included on the LP program.

Executive Decision - The Deluxe Edition (Jerry Goldsmith) -- Sure, this is a generic 90s Goldsmith action score, but it's still really good and I think very underrated. Plenty of exciting action music and well worth a complete release. Varese seems to have given us everything except for a few alternates which would have necessitated a second disc and higher price so I think they did this release right. This bodes well for them continuing to mine their 90s Goldsmith in-perpetuity titles.

Cocoon: The Return - The Deluxe Edition (James Horner) -- A fitting tribute to Horner and a worthy expansion of a score I believe they held in perpetuity. I don't know much about the previously missing music (about 18 minutes worth) but I'm excited to hear it.

We also know, thanks to D2 Mastering, that there is a new edition of Silvestri's Volcano coming out this year, presumably in a later Varese batch (they had also spilled the beans on Cocoon: The Return at the same time). Varese is really on a roll lately so I think there's more and more hope for everyone's wants!

I've updated the first post in this thread, as Volcano has arrived in complete DE form as expected, accompanied by new complete editions of Delerue's Joe vs. the Volcano and Poledouris's Starship Troopers! The latter totally makes up for lack of Goldsmith in this batch, IMO. smile

Fantastic releases. (Also released with these three: encores of Donaggio's Zelly and Me and a standalone release of the first disc stereo masters of the Spartacus box.) Keep up the great work, Varese!

With this morning's release of The Omen and Scream 2 complete, two more perpetuity titles are crossed off the want list (presumably The Omen was due to their DE release 15 years ago)!

Yavar

P.S. If what they have available digitally is anything to go by, then it seems that Varese might not have perpetuity rights on Poledouris's It's My Party. I looked high and low for it on iTunes with no success.

You still have Hellboy listed in the main post.

And Robocop 3, but I've just fixed them both! And I should also note that Varese released a remastered Encore edition for Barry's Jagged Edge, which was a perpetuity title a lot of people wanted. I think that's the only remaining Barry they controlled.

My wish related to this thread would be that Varese starts releasing their sold out DEs of in-perp titles as downloads. For example, The Abyss, Die Hard 2, Matrix...

So far only BTTF III and Gremlins 2 seem to have made it to DL, and those aren't even sold out yet.

And by downloads I mean worldwide availability, non of this US exclusive nonsense (I'm looking at you, Stargate DE).

I wonder if we'll get one more batch this year as that was only two titles in October.

Well it turns out we did get one more Club release in 2016: a complete edition of Giacchino's Star Trek Beyond.

Of course I hadn't had that one listed in my main post so there's nothing to remove, but I had listed Poledouris's Under Siege 2 and Williams's Stanley & Iris. I just removed both of those in light of Varese's new Deluxe Edition releases of the complete scores.

Also, major kudos to them for reissuing as an Encore Edition their special album recording (another great George Korngold-produced Utah recording like the Kojian Sea Hawk and Robin Hood albums) of Bernstein's The Black Cauldron, a worthy companion to the Intrada complete film recording.

I hope next time they'll go back to their deeeep Goldsmith well, and if they keep up with Williams and Poledouris, The Cowboys and On Deadly Ground are what I want in complete form next. smile

Is there a thread somewhere abouts with a complete list of in perp titles? I'm guessing you're not updating this one? (Brainstorm isn't there).

Still holding out hope for:

RoboCop 2
Demolition Man
Sphere
Hudson Hawk (more of a curiosity than an actual grail)

Hey Peter I never said this was a complete or accurate list, just our own private wish lists based on guessing. But please feel to chime in with any that should be removed...

Is there any way to verify if Varese holds Dead Poets Society and Witness in perpetuity?

If so, I'll definitely update my wish list to include DEs of those titles
