The Official Tadlow Thread

272 posts in this topic

Why doesn't Tadlow make a list of possible candidates and send it to all competitors? it can't be so hard to reach out to 10 small companies to inquire about upcoming releases so that they don't run into these inconveniences all the time.

Sounds like a pretty good and simple idea. Perhaps too simple for them to think about it.

So if you're Mr. Varése or Mr. LLL, you deny answering a simple question with 'better don't do these 3 things right now, we're negotiating' because...? What disadvantage could stem from that?

Oh I had forgotten that Fitzpatrick planned the re-record The Blue Max but then LLL set came out so they didn't do it.

I have all three releases of the score and I'd pay premium price for a Tadlow recording.

It seems worth mentioning that the long-rumored re-recording of Jerry Goldsmith's BLUE MAX is about to come upon us:

I think The Blue Max will be the first Tadlow Recording I will buy!

James Fitzpatrick has revealed that they will also re-record Jerry Goldsmith's Inchon

That is awesome news! The score is really good, even if it seems like Patton and Tora! Tora! Tora! in one, The first time I heard, it was my wish to have it got a re-recording. It needs one badly!

I'll absolutely buy Blue Max, of course. I'd been wishing (without much hope initially) for it ever since they started recording Goldsmith.

Yeah I relatively recently bought the LLL release but will certainly buy this as well. :)

I just hope the recording is just a wee bit less hot in the mastering department. INCHON would be great though if more Goldsmith, i'd prefer LIONHEART... :yes:

And Rambo III.

I skipped the LLL Blue Max because the Intrada was enough for me, but I might get a Tadlow rerecording.

The LLL is a significant improvement where sound quality is concerned.

I really wonder if the orchestra can handle the intended fury of rambo III

I sold my (still sealed) Intrada The Blue Max off for a profit as soon as LLL announced their version. That was a freebie.

Surely better than the orchestra that performed the OST.

What I really think is one of Tadlow's strongest points is that their re-recordings are always (?) done at more or less exactly the same tempo as the original. The Morgan/Stromberg re-recordings, for example, whilst obviously well produced and neatly performed, never really synch up with the picture.

Some cues can benefit from a slightly slower or faster tempo, but in general, I'd prefer a re-recording to be done at the same tempo as the original.

Their Conan turned me into a fan of this score.

Ditto.

Their El Cid recording is one of the most beloved albums in my entire soundtrack collection.

A brilliant re-recording and also a cherished part of my collection as well.

I don't generally need that of a re-recording, though it's nice in those cases where the original recording is for some reason not available, or has sound or performance issues.

With The Blue Max, I'd love to have a full recordings with the tempi Goldsmith conducted at the 2001 LSO concert. My favourite performance of the score, but the Nerys recording obviously doesn't sound too good.

But I'm sure I'll be very happy with whatever they do, which is most likely the original film tempo.
