  1. John Barrys THE DEEP got reissued? I have the Intrada release. This looks like the OST version with a few new tracks. Intradas release is both the OST and the entire Barry score (in mono)
  2. And the new releases are:.. @Holko beat my post by a few seconds...LOL!
  3. Latest update from Doug Fake on his Intrada Blog page: http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/sc.13/category.60330/.f 11/4/2019 As most folks are aware, California has seen the fiery wrath of Mother Nature quite a bit lately. Thing are still ablaze in places but improvements in the weather have mercifully aided firefighting efforts. Activity at our end has been slowed due to power outages but people here are safe and things are getting back on track. I’ve just finished editing and mastering a major Disney title and the resulting 2-CD release will be one of our early releases for 2020. Another Disney release is scheduled for next month, alongside one from Paramount, albeit workloads at the major film studios - many of them now busy establishing streaming services or settling in from mergers and whatnot - are slowing down the final approval processes. As much as I’d like to imagine otherwise, getting sign-offs on the latest Intrada releases isn’t at the top of the studio to-do lists, nor even in the middle of them. Hopefully not at the bottom, however Our upcoming release of Dial M For Murder progresses rapidly. Simon Rhodes mixed everything and I’ve edited and mastered the album already. We’re amidst the liner note and artwork/packaging phase now. In my humble opinion this is one of the most vibrant and authentic re-recordings of a classic film score as has been so far released. In tandem with Simon’s peerless contributions in the booth of this amazing new venue in Glasgow, the credit goes to William T. Stromberg for his bravura work on the podium and all those fabulous players of the RSNO that brought Tiomkin’s florid music to life. So there’s plenty of cool stuff coming up ahead. From the above, I suspect the new recording of Dial M for Murder could be one of the December releases. Of the 2 Disney titles could it be Lalo Schifrin's Return From Witch Mountain ? which Yavar seems to be sure from his deductions. I have never seen the movie or heard it any form before-so my curiosity is peaked on that one since both Doug and Roger has hinted it being one of their most requested title. But honestly, I was wishing for Ron Godwins' One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing.
  4. You have some of the essentials. Now you should try to get the following rerecordings: 1)The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, 2) The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, 3) The Trouble with Harry, 4) The Bride Wore Black, 5) The Kentuckian. Also the following compilation albums are a must have: 1) CITIZEN KANE: Classic Film Scores of Bernard Herrmann (Cond. By Charles Gerhardt) 2) Bernard Herrmann Film Scores: Cond. By Esa Pekka Salonen 3) All the Decca London Phase Four recordings conducted by Herrmann. Get these and your journey to Bernard Herrmann essentials would be near complete. Also checkout my 2 hour Online Tribute to Herrmanns music on Erik Woods Cinematic Sounds archive. http://www.cinematicsound.net/a-tribute-to-bernard-herrmann-part-i/
  5. After Williams Im obsessed about Herrmann. Tell me which scores you already have and I'll recommend you some nice ones to get.
  6. It would be cool if they did a cd release of it as well with the blu ray DVD when it happens. Because of Witches of Eastwick. Let's see.
  7. My copy of MINORITY REPORT also arrived today along with the other Tom Cruise release (Mission Impossible). Super Thanks to MV Gerhard for taking my order on phone and shipping it urgent 3 day shipping to my aunts house in New York. She was to catch a flight to Pakistan in that time span and miraculously the package arrived just in time. Also a bunch of other stuff came as well. So I saved some serious International shipping charges. MV Gerhard is a great guy. Recognized me immediately and even said I was one their favorite customers. Now that's real awesome too.
  8. The remastering process has certainly improved by a significant upgrade in the tools being used now and what was done in the previous decade. If they felt that they need to do a reissue then it must have been for a very good reason such as Better quality tapes or first generation masters. And any unreleased alternates or bonus cues with the OST album paired would make a tantalizing offer to both old and new fans.
  9. To me Stargate is a sort of an Deluxe Encore release. I think it should come in the November batch. But I vaguely remember that MV indicated as a December release. Also Darkman. I guess either one if not both will be in the early November batch.
  10. Over the years, I've noticed that whenever a very high profile composer and an extremely popular title is expected to come out; the labels usually go in a super silence mode even though they are in the habits of giving hints. So this could mean something awesome and unbelievable good is coming for sure!! And once its revealed, its expected that you and I would not be the same.
  11. They opted to use PayPal only for payments on the newly revised website and unfortunately my country is not on PayPal list therefore I can't place orders from their directly. MV told me the IT guy would work on restoring the old method which allows credit card to work independently but still hasn't..... I merely order from other retailers now. But MV will manually process my orders over the phone so that's not bad.
  12. The samples are very good! Obviously with Matessino it's going to sound amazing. I was very, very pleased with A.I. It sounded more fuller with depth and the solo vocals recorded at Royce Hall sounded incredible on that recording. I only got around to listen to A.I. this year even though I had bought it the same month of its release. The new presentation, arrangement has a wonderful narrative flow to it and as listening experience it was quite riveting.The sound quality on that was a massive improvement over the original cd and even the DVD-Audio edition. I'am sure with MR it would be similar. Looking forward to this grand release in coming weeks.
