Happy Friday, Scott --

I hope you won't mind that this not a comment but a question, asked because you always seem to know what's in the works. By any chance, do you happen to know if Quartet will be releasing any more expanded Rota/Fellini scores? LA DOLCE VITA and 8 1/2 were dreams come true, and I'm still dreaming of GIULIETTA DEGLI SPIRITI...

Sorry, I have no info on more Rota (and the rare times I have info on upcoming releases I am expressly forbidden to let anyone know anyway. The Don Is Dead was a total surprise to me, and I know the Intrada gang pretty well).

I listened to those expanded Rotas for day-job-related reasons and they were terrific. I don't know if there's any unreleased music from my favorite Rota, Death on the Nile, but I would love to have more of that one.

I haven't listened to NILE for a long time, but back in the day it helped me hook my late mother on Maestrota. High time I gave it a fresh listen, now that I know it's your favorite work by one of my (and Mom's) favorite composers. But from what you say, I should watch the movie again so I can hear the whole Magilla.

I suspect there is little if anything missing from the Nile LP/CD. Like Murder on the Orient Express, it's a pretty talky film with not a huge amount of room for scoring, but it was the first Rota film I ever saw and still my favorite, and a wonderful score (though at least one cue is a reworking of one of his Fellini pieces -- from The Clowns, possibly?).

I remember how thrilled I was when the soundtrack LP popped up, completely unannounced, at a San Francisco record shop. (I had similar experiences with The Great Train Robbery and Heavy Metal, neither of which I knew had score LPs due when they suddenly showed up in stores).

Why is this data missing from this list?

Because I'm still adding more than 300 items to that database, spanning June 3 (Dennis McCarthy records his score for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode “The Jem’Hadar” (1994)) to December 31 (Antonio Diaz Conde died (1976)), and no one pays me to do this crap.

You're welcome.
