They already did that anyway. Although they do have reason to do a reissue, as Horner left off a couple of cues (for no reason I can see).

 

They didn't "already do that", they released an incomplete album of some of the score, arranged by Horner, likely the OST he would have done at the time of the film's release were he able to.

 

Someday they'll surely re-do it, this time as a complete score.  But it would be 1 disc with just the complete score, no need to throw in that first Intrada cutdown on a second disc.

Yea... so why can't we?

An FSMer just had a good idea, maybe its Roger Rabbit, and it takes 3 CDs because the 3rd disc will be the scores to the various Roger Rabbit shorts that came out after the film.


Then again, I think even those are short enough they'd fit at the end of the 2nd disc of Silvestri's film score.  That score had a bunch of alternates recorded, but its still not THAT long.

 

(The boot I have is 1 hour, 50 minutes)

Out of every score anyone's mentioned, I think only Willow, Mulan, and maybe Mighty Joe Young could be called an "Action Packed Masterpiece" by Doug.  Maybe Poledouris' Jungle Book, too - I've never seen that film or heard that score, don't know anything about it.

Poledouris wrote a good score but I wouldn’t call it an action packed masterpiece.

 

But if goes the Zimmer route, I wouldn’t call any of his potential titles as action packed masterpieces either, but then I don’t know how Doug Fake or Roger Feigelson view Zimmer’s work.

That was released as recent as 2011...

Why not? Fits the clues better than anything else except maaaybe Roger Rabbit. Two discs for the complete score (definitely action-packed) and then a third disc for the original album -- unnecessary IMO but probably contractually obligated since it is now owned by UMG (past UMG perpetuity albums were required to be included on their own separate disc). Not a Disney film but "from the vaults" fits since it would be in their vaults now.

It will be Mulan. Disney has recognized that it belongs more to Intrada's Goldsmith releases than to Disney's Legacy Collection.

Disc 1 will feature the complete orchestral score, disc 2 the complete score with the songs integrated and disc 3 the OST. The alternates will be spread over one or two of those CDs.

I can't see any reason why they'd do that

I just can't see Mulan needing 3 discs.  I think Mulan will either be a 1 or 2disc Intrada release with JUST Jerry's work, OR a lavish Disney Legacy Collection if all the pop songs are gonna be included... I dunno.

 

At this point with Doug and Roger both purposely being more secretive than usual, it does seem like its something bigger than usual, so maybe it is Mulan, Eliphino.

Right, exactly.  So it's only Mulan if they are doing their complete + alternates, normal expanded score thing over 2 discs, and then just slapping the entire old OST as the third disc.

 

Which just doesn't seem like something they'd do, in this case.

Correct and I wouldn’t label Mulan as an action masterpiece. 

 

And I don’t think the original composer, Rachel Portman recorded anything, I believe she had to drop out due to a pregnancy. I think she had a different set of song writers though, maybe they wrote something.

 

That would be another reason to include a 3rd Disc.

At times like these its easy to get infatuated with hopes of MULAN, WILLOW etc. I 'm not sure if we can call Roger Rabbit an action packed since its half animated/live action  but its an anniversary year. We will need more clues from Doug/Roger before we can take clean shot. Oh well.. back to the drawing board...!:blush2:

Is it definitely pre-2000?

I hope it's not Pirates of the Carribean if it's recent.

 

Another that I thought:

Iron Will

 

I hope it's The Three musketeers.

Complete score in 2 discs and album in 3rd

The album is structured like movements so it makes sense to include it.

 

I can't think of any pre-1980 action-packed masterpiece.

Iron Will, yes, but then they might not be so hush hush about it because no one remembers that picture or composer.

 

Speaking of McNeely, it could be Mulan (Goldsmith) and Mulan 2 (McNeely). Both unlikely...Never considered Roger Rabbit action packed.

I wonder if Roger will do a clue post today in their forum like tradition (the Thursday before the Monday night release), or skip that this time due to all the hype

When it finally comes, It will be funny when we realize we have been dancing around it along. It would be something in front of us and yet we couldn't see. Waiting for those clues too..its quite a head scratcher..No?

It's hard to pin this one to a genre, but if I went with the first word that popped into my head, I would say gumshoe.

 

As per this quote, it's hard not to revert back to Roger Rabbit.

Definitely. Not an "action masterpiece", but fits all other clues if the RR shorts spill things over to a third disc.

 

I honestly would not be surprised if the total time would fit on two discs but they did three anyway, like their Great Escape.

Bruce Marshall (Kritzerland) on FSM is claiming that it's WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? The film is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. So it could be it. Disc 3 is probably the various Roger Rabbit shorts by Broughton. Oh!! I now remember reading a clue that Doug Fake dropped about working on a favorite Broughton subject a while back. So this mammoth set could be....

His name is Bruce Kimmel, not Bruce Marshall.

 

And that's a dickhead move to spoil another label's title like that. Why would he do that?

 

And Broughton only scored two of the three Roger Rabbit shorts, Tummy Trouble was by Horner.

Yeah Kimmel.  He goes by name of Mr. Marshall there. I think he is guessing.. Like a bet.  Oh. I didn't know Horner did one too. That's interesting.

Bruce Kimmel, the head of Kritzerland Records, posts on FSM under "haineshisway".

 

Bruce Marshall ("Mr. Marshal" on FSM) is just some guy.  Not a label head lol.

 

Anyway, the complete session leak of Roger Rabbit with all the alternates is only 1 hour, 50 minutes, and the three Roger Rabbit shorts are only 7 minutes each. It would fit on 2 discs EASILY.

 

Unless they are contractually obligated to include the other composer's shorts on a separate platter from Silvestri's work, or they are slapping the OST on the third disc, still seems odd to me.

Too many Bruce's there .LOL. I suppose I got confused by em. They talk in the same tone though.So thanks for clearing that up ! 

 

I'm still stumped on the 3rd disc. Maybe its the OST or a different alternate mixed in cues like they did in RAMBO II.

 

But the Broughton 'Favourite' Clue that Doug mentioned somewhere on his Facebook makes me really think he was talking about those Roger Rabbit shorts.

 

P.S. Here is that quote from Nov 7th.  " Taking a break from working with Bruce Broughton on one of his personal favorite scores to celebrate my friend Afrooz's birthday. As for Bruce: This puts us at more than 50 albums together!"  Interestingly he has posted pics from Disney Archives offices on the same date.

I never had the OST so I cant say much but it sure is an action packed cartoon jazzy score from Silvestri. Should be fun.
