  1. UPDATE: September 18, 2017 THE ARCHIVE WITH JASON DRURY: EPISODE TWO http://www.cinematicsound.net/the-archive-with-jason-drury-episode-two/ Welcome to episode two of THE ARCHIVE WITH JASON DRURY here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO. This episode features an exclusive suite of music from Tadlow Records' brand new recording of BEN-HUR by Miklos Rozsa. BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES turns 25 years old this month and to commemorate that momentous occasion you'll hear selections from the various scores composed by Shirley Walker. Jason takes a trip back to 1983 and plays for you selections from John Barry's score to HIGH ROAD CHINA. Composer Roy Budd was born on March 14, 1947. Sadly and suddenly, he passed away at the age of 46 from a brain hemorrhage on August 7th, 1993. Jason celebrates Budd's 70th anniversary with music from FEAR IS THE KEY and his final score for PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Back in 2009 Intrada Records released Jerry Goldsmith score to ONE LITTLE INDIAN by Jerry Goldsmith. You'll hear a suite from that score which was initially released in 1973. Afterwards, Jason treats you with music from David Arnold's forgotten classic to LAST OF THE DOGMEN and then rounds off the program with a flourish with music from Tadlow Records' re-recording of TARAS BULBA by Franz Waxman.

  2. I use my ears to listen to music. But I understand where you are coming from but 2016 JP is compressed... or at least SEEMS compressed to my ears. -Erik-
  3. The 1996 and 2002 releases were re-mixed by Shawn Murphy. Again, there was no need to fart around with it. Burbridge and Botnick did a brilliant job with their original mix. I hope Matassino and Botnick did do too much with their mix on the LLL edition. I like Matassino a lot but sometimes his mixes erk me. Less is more in this case! -Erik- I don't agree with the Jurassic Park comment. I can hear compression, especially in the opening cue. The big boom of those drums sound dampened. The only thing Jurassic Park need was a boost in overall volume. Sometimes I think the labels just tinker for the sake of tinkering because then they have something different and not necessarily something that is improved. For instance, the original release of Eraser sounds much better than La La Land's mix. But that's just a personal thought. I love all the labels and what they do for all of us fans is greatly appreciated! -Erik-
  4. Whoops! <<grabscoat>> I'll see myself out -Erik- Some scores don't need a new mix. This is one that DOESN'T need one. -Erik-
  5. I assumed that the album recording took place during the same sessions as the original soundtrack recording. They were both recorded by Lyle Burbridge and Bruce Botnick at MGM Scoring. -Erik-
  6.

  7. Hummmm... sorry to hear that. As you know I think highly of the theme, which is one of the most catchy and original superhero themes written... ever! -Erik- I don't see why not. I actually contemplated Judge Dredd's theme. I love that score! -Erik-
  8. I'm not completely sure I understand what you are saying? -Erik-

  14. UPDATE: June 24, 2017 EP. 48 – RE-RECORDING JAMES HORNER http://www.cinematicsound.net/ep-48-re-recording-james-horner/ Over the past few years, we hear at CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO have been paying our respects to two-time Academy Award winning composer James Horner with various radio specials including a four hour plus special produced a few days after his death. We also produced a two-part series last year featuring some of his lesser known film scores. Jason Drury has also been producing an epic three-part radio documentary in Horner’s honour. The third and final part of that program is scheduled to be released next week right here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO. James Horner was part of a holy trinity of film composers I grew up with admiring. The others were John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith. Those three brought me into the world of film music with their timeless and classic scores and made me a fan of this art form for life. Today's program is dedicated to re-recorded James Horner music. Fans of the show know of my love for re-recordings or new recordings of previously existing scores so I thought this would be a unique way to mark the 2nd anniversary of James Horner's passing. Today's program will include performances by The City of Prague Philharmonic, The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, The Boston Pops Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Solo performers include flutist Sara Andon, pianist Jean-Michel Bernard, pianist Dan Redfeld, and violinist Mari Samuelsen. Conductors include Nic Raine, John Scott, John Williams, Erich Kunzel, David Arnold, Joel McNeely and John Debney.
