Yes. For some reason John Scott is VERY protective of this score and wasn't willing to collaborate when La-La Land put out the soundtrack on CD, thus leaving them only to do the original LP presentation.

Now you can basically forget ever getting any expansion because Warner Bros. isn't really interested in licensing anything and has become rather impossible to deal with.

Does anyone know if there is a separate music only channel on any Bluray or DVD releases of this film?

I'd love to enjoy the score in its entirety without sound FX and dialogue.

I hadn't remembered how harmonically daring Scott was/is. His music is bold and balances traditional technique with some dissonances that remind me of Bartok's work.

No, there isn't.

Drat.. Oh well. I'm just glad what exists was re-issued since I'd long since lost my record of this magnificent score.

I revising and updating my custom John Scott compilation, adding in tracks from "Final Countdown", and in listening again to "Greystoke" I am always impressed by his work on this film. The score is a real delight from start to finish, so much melodicism and rich orchestrations.

This isn't true.

Forget Greystoke... before Scott did the Tarzan movie, he had warmed up the year before by doing the score for a movie with another mighty, bare-chested hero... YOR!
And I actually play the Yor CD a lot more often than the inadequate Greystoke album:

Unfortunately Basil; “Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan” – has not had an expanded CD release… and – that is what we are trying to achieve here… we’ll “forget about Greystoke” – once we get some sort of expansion…
“Yor: The Hunter From The Future” – has indeed been expanded already –

...and I am grateful for it… but the “Greystoke” score has not – so please don’t say – "forget about this masterpiece" – they are two entirely different scores…

It’s like saying forget about “Greystoke” because “King Kong Lives” has been released…

Apparently my understanding of the situation was wrong. I stand corrected.

Wow that is one terrific suite! I hope someone can convince Scott to possibly make this a deluxe download purchase.. the overhead would be far less and if it was at a lossless quality, I'm sure most of us would prefer that over nothing... there is so much exquisite material missing from the commercial release (though I have to give props to LaLaLand for a great job on their release- I'm so glad I bought it when I did because it's out of print apparently).

I think I need to personally thank bobbengan for this. The suite contains all of the cues I dearly wished for from the commercial release in 1984. Fantastic quality as well.

Did he really get John Scott's permission to post these things?

I have doubts.

Absolutely Phenomenal! And the sound quality – what can say – WOW!

My favourite part of the suite is between 4:55 – and – 7:00. I would probably call it the “Black Panther” cue…
It is my favourite part of the score – (maybe because it was unavailable – until now!)
I am also hopelessly in love with all the unreleased music.

Sorry to go off topic here:
One question I do not understand is; once an orchestra records music – why can’t the music get released?
I mean – consumers will buy it. Unfortunately; generations of film goers who were interested in this score back in 1984 – have either left us; or sadly – lost interest.
The music should get released at the time it is recorded… the studios can make more money that way - IF - they release it immediately - then say – wait around 30 years… look at the way technology has ruined the music (and movie) business…

When was the last time you saw our society line up for 3 hours to watch a – “Blockbuster” – movie?
I mean; they can’t wait two minutes – without bitching; when waiting in line at the registers!
People have become less patient; and technology is to blame for that…

Thanks, a very good old fashion score.
