I just listened to a cue from this movie. Is it me or does the theme sound very much like on of the themes from Band of Brothers? Did he "borrow" this to create the theme for the mini series?

I dont mean the main titles theme but that other theme in the show.
Is this a know fact perhaps? big grin

Overture:




From 1:27 here:



Or do I think too much (again) lol!


Actually, that's part of "Cole's Tune" in the Band of BrotherS Suite #1. And suite two is actually based on his Millennium Symphony The New Moon In The Old Moon's Arm.

I'm really glad he didn't go full on Medieval instruments. I would not enjoy that. It works with the blend we have in the score just fine. But that source cue at the beginning of disc 2 is a bit too much for me and is removed from my playlist.

So I was playing the Jeff Lynne song just now.
Lynne was such a offbeat choice to do a cue.
Is there any material out there that explains how he came to be involved with the movie?
When I think of other people that could have done the job, the first that springs to mind is Jethro Tull--in full "Songs From The Wood" mode.
Perhaps Steeleye Span.
The only reason for Lynne that I can fathom is that ELO's first album had a VERY medieval tinge to it, but only going back, say, 300 years or so--not 700 or 800 years.
Maybe Lynne lobbied for it.

I love Jeff Lynne but I'm not sure the track holds up very well on its own after all this time--the pop version, I mean.

I'm a HUGE Lynne & ELO fan....I never play wild times, hate it. Funny how sometimes when two of your heroes get together it doesn't work for you....
I believe it was nothing more than Lynne & Kamen were mates, Kamen rang Lynne, asked if he could pop over for a song and that's that.
As already mentioned, time was short....

I can't stop playing this new Intrada release. What a treat! Is there much music missing from THE THREE MUSKETEERS? Maybe that can be tackled at some point.

I’m really hooked on that opening track. Really good stuff.

Hope so. The film has around 100 minutes of score. For example all the music from the final battle is missing from the cd!!

A little more on the cues that couldn't be found:

Regarding the absent cues, it may help for listeners to realize at least some of them are the result of the unusually large number of orchestrators on this score listed by the AFM, who did some "ghost writing" to get the massive amount of music completed on time. So some of these pieces are really just adaptations of Kamen's material orchestrated by others to blend in with Kamen's actual work. Some of those cues appear to have been done separately and those rolls of tape appear to be AWOL. The execution drumming material was mostly done live to picture with on-screen extras and was not recorded during the orchestral scoring sessions. These sequences may have been done as "pre-records" during filming and might've been recorded wild long before actual scoring took place... but this is just my sort of educated guess. In this case Kamen might not have been involved. So Kamen's own actual score itself is pretty well represented. If any of these other items eventually do show up, we'll sort out what to do with them when that time may arise. big grin

So now that Doug has confirmed ghostwriting, are we allowed to talk about it again???

It'd been so many years since I last listened to this score that I forgot how much I enjoyed it! This was an oft-played Kamen album of mine back in the 90's, especially when there were fewer of his scores available on disc. The original album does have some great highlights but it's been marvelous to hear the cues in full - total winner from Intrada!

Thank goodness that's cleared up, maybe completeness freaks can stop trolling and get on with their lives...

------------------
NO!

I've waited years to have the Robin Escapes music on CD. That 2nd half of the cue, when it gets all Korngoldy swashbuckle...ACE! STUNNING! (insert more superlatives).
It was weird hearing the Little John river sequence* untruncated, after all those years playing the edited track, but it's a nice problem to have to get used to wink
Absolutely loving this release. Hearing all those little (and not so little) extensions of long loved tracks.
Great sound and packaging.
Signed,
One Happy Customer smile

*after all these years, it's still an absolute Kamen highlight for me. That bit where the brass and horns go ape sh!t crazy, flying off in all different directions!
Man, Kamen was a BEAST when he wanted to be.

I bought this set directly from Intrada and I had this huge scratch on CD 2. I got replacement CD from Intrada but it looks exactly the same. Does anyone else has this marking on their CD 2?

Are you sure it isn't just a "cd 2" label?

I have never seen this kind of "label".

Does it interfere with disc play or ripping?

I have not tested the CD yet. Am I the only one that has these markings?
