Roger at Intrada alluded to one of the upcoming releases on Monday (speculated to be the Flint scores) was a very long time coming which got me curious as to other long in development soundtrack releases.

This one's more a question for the labels, I guess. Which of your projects took the longest to come to fruition and how long did they take? Are there any interesting stories about these lengthy release processes?

The Ten Commandments must be close to setting a new "in development" record by now.

Well Goldsmith's Sebastian was a number of years. Remember when Lukas hinted it was coming, & then years went by before Intrada released it (now oop!). That's why I'd rather not know what they're working on.

I think FSM's release of Jerry Fielding's HUNTERS ARE FOR KILLING took 11 years (if I read/remember correctly).

Did anyone actually admit it is "in development" , or is it all hearsay?

FSM 's GREMLINS was a long & apparently painful gestation, right Lukas? It was worth it, dude!

I remember FSM's release of Time After Time taking a good five years at least from the time Lukas said they were working on it.

This comment by Roger at Intrada makes it almost a sure bet."Two 60s LP programs in stunning sound from the original 1/2" 3-track masters make their debut FINALLY next week"

Yes it must...because 3 years ago I was going to do a new complete recording of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS but was put of doing so by Intrada as they were going to issue "the ultimate" Ten Commandments set. Wish I had gone ahead with the recording now.

Still have to to a new recording of BLU MAX sometime as had all the score and pats done and a recording date set when LaLa then announce their edition...

And the Herrmann score I will be re-recording in just a few weeks will now also have a re-release just about the same time I wanted to release my recording... a case of bad timing?

Looks like record labels are falling over themselves to release as many titles are possible that the whole market is now swamped and depressed which I forecast even before Intrada started on their Ten Commandments quest....

Given your unfortunate and understandably frustrating streak of intended recordings being overshadowed by albums of the original film tracks, Can I suggest a highly requested title 100% gauranteed not to be done by any label? -Horner's, Battle Beyond the Stars. :-)

Just imagining how f**king awesome that score would sound under your supervision! I can see it pleasing the fans and converting the "Meh sayers" who never gave it a chance because they couldnt see past the limitations of the origibal project.

Sci-Fi music as it's best when in the right hands! "Help us Obi-Won-Fitz, you're our only hope." :-)

Interesting. In my opinion a fresh 10C from Prague would likely be more satisfactory than an archival issue of the 1956 tracks. The unknown factors include how much music was recorded but not used in the film and how much was written but never recorded. Only a new recording would give us access to the latter, as Tadlow demonstrated so well on EL CID, QUO VADIS, and some other scores.

Bruce Kimmel from Kritzerland announced on this board last year that it was coming, but not from his label or Varese.

And this was after MV said it wasn't them in the All News LLL thread.

We have one that goes back to 2008!

As with all the studios we work with, we would come up with an initial "Top 10 titles" we wanted to release. Once we started working with one of these studios, we thought title #5 would be fairly easy to clear, but it wasn't. We kept starting and stopping... putting it off due to legal complications. Then, in the Summer of 2012, we got the go ahead to go full steam ahead with this project. We planned on having out it for Black Friday 2012. HOWEVER, a huge monkey wrench was thrown into our plans once again so we had to delay the release until the powers that be finally worked out all the details that were never worked out.

Now, this year, I am happy to say all details have been worked out. This Black Friday that coveted title of ours is finally coming out.

smile

The saying is true -- "All Good things come to those who wait."

So, 4 years of starts and stops followed by two more years of waiting for approval! lol

"Re-release". So it's a score that's been released before? Fascinating.

Well anyway James, you can be sure I will buy your re-recording. I'm not an either-or guy, I'm a both-and.

Cheers

Intrada themselves (coyly) confirmed it on their boards over a year ago. They are also including the orginal album, currently in the UMG catalogue, which means, like Conan the Destroyer and Apollo 13, it's an issue of time now. A long wait.

I totally respect these labels keeping the cat in the bag as long as possible.
