Still waiting for a good Conan the Destroyer complete score mix

The TADLOW recording is complete and features a much better performance then the orchestra did on the OST.

Ford A. Thaxton


Folk keep saying this about the Destroyer recording and yes, it is a very good re-recording.. but its different.
Its like if you love a particular song by a band and then another band covers it. It might be good but its not the version you love. Technical expertise don't necessarily come into it. For me its the music in the film I love. A couple of my favourite tracks, Night Bird and Horn Of Dagoth are just different enough in instrument emphasis and tempo to be just a bit off for me and not as emotionally magical when listening to it.
I know Mr Poledouris wasn't happy with the original performance but that's what he created and for me, and I'm sure many others, thats what we want to properly hear.


Exactly this. I'll add Dream Quest to the list, for me anyway. The differences are so glaring that it always takes me out of it.

Yep, sometimes one is just attached to a particular recording, and it doesn't have anything to do with that recording being "better", just that the attachment is there.

I saw the movie once years ago and actually thought it was fun, like the old Hercules movies, but I like the Tadlow recording a lot and that will certainly the recording I will turn to when listening to the score.

Sugarland Express (JW) - used to be Tom Sawyer too, but that got fixed
Volunteers (JH) - used to be Romeo & Juliet too, but that got fixed
Date With An Angel (Randy Kerber)
Wizard Of Loneliness (Michel Colombier)
Aspen Extreme (Michael Convertino) - plus any other unreleased MC scores

So that makes the number one grail score I can think of for me Maurice Jarre's 5 CARD STUD. Can't think for my life why this one has never ever been released in any format (not even vinyl back in the day). It is probably that no mastertapes exist, otherwise I think one specialty label might have released this by now.


Do you not have the Universal France 4 CD set "Le Cinéma de Maurice Jarre" which was released in 2010? On the fIrst disc of this set altogether about 8 minutes from 5 CARD STUD can be found: At first the title song sung by Dean Martin which had formerly been released on a 45rpm single in 1968 and then a 6-minute long instrumental Jarre track - kind of a suite - with the title "The Investigation". So it´s obvious that master tapes must exist of this score - even though it is possible that they are available only in the Jarre estate and not at Paramount.
If you don´t know that excellent Jarre set, here it is:
https://www.discogs.com/Maurice-Jarre-Le-Cin%C3%A9ma-De-Maurice-Jarre/release/9916320


No, but looks like a nice set. :-) Still, even if I had, I'd probably still want a "complete" 5 Card Stud Soundtrack (it's not a long score, but there must be more than 8 minutes of score in the movie). The Jarre set seems like a good overview of Jarre's output over the years, though.

Ive been saying the same for years. I cannot listen to the re-recording of Conan the Barbarian, its just way to different. Its not the music I love. Thankfully Intrada gave us an expanded remaster of that score.

I would like to have a nice box set of The Godfather trilogy, or Rocky saga. Of course Rudy deluxe edition, Last of the Mohicans, and I know probably never happen but Twilight Zone original series. Also a box set of Ennio Morricones Dollars trilogy would be cool. Maybe LLL can release Michael Kamen’s Last Action Hero but also add the original album with all those good rock songs. I know copy rights would be a issue with this one. And last one I thought of let’s get a good copy of Horner’s Glory.

Appropriately enough because of the thread title and recent days, Excalibur. With all the score (I never knew there was original opening and closing title music, which REALLY sets me going even more for this) and the correct recordings of the classical stuff.

And Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD, without the sound fx. Such a shame the cd released by Silva Screen couldn't have that. Glad it was released though. A major part of my childhood (and beyond).
