The original art work by this nameless artist from Cairo was cool indeed. Very atmospheric and would have fitted the theme very well.

Well the beauty of the internet allows you to use that original artwork regardless.

Naturally. My lament was of course for the physical release.

Is that a request for a poem? Because I can do that.

Era of digital, all-freeing,

yet physical and solid form

lost is this state of being

which used to be the norm.

 

CD with its bejeweled case

the sleeve of paper fine

now bytes and bits we face

the long defeat, oh the decline.

 

No more artist's contribution

testimony lasting will remain

with click the digi revolution

will him replace, this modern bane.

I was going to write what a terrible waste of resources this is, but the website automatically typed it for me because that was the last thing I typed in this thread.

What? I got no memory. And this place's search function ain't worth anything at all.

If the want tackle more epic Rózsa projects, I'd be much happier with King of Kings (although that one sounds quite good) or Knights of the Round Table

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and The Plymouth Adventure could both use the sound quality upgrade!

JERRY GOLDSMITH

A Special Collectors Edition featuring early cult TV scores from the Composer of
THE OMEN * THE WIND AND THE LION* CHINATOWN * STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE * GREMLINS * FIRST KNIGHT * RAMBO * BASIC INSTINCT * PAPILLON * THE BLUE MAX

Thriller (also known as Boris Karloff’s Thriller) is an American anthology television series that aired during the 1960–61 and 1961–62 seasons on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers Reruns currently now air on various classic TV networks.

Thriller was an early milestone in Goldsmith’s career, one of the television steppingstones en route to big-screen fame. Goldsmith would ultimately score 16 episodes of Thriller (about a third of all those with original music) including some of the scariest and best-remembered hours.

Includes suites from some of the most memorable episodes:

THE GRIM REAPER
HAY-FORK AND BILL-HOOK
WELL OF DOOM
MR.GEORGE
THE POISONER
YOURS TRULY, JACK THE RIPPER

Even Tadlow is scraping the bottom of the barrel?

After listening to the terrific recordings of THE BLUE MAX,  SODOM AND GOMORRAH and THIEF OF BAGDAD; I cant stop raving about them. Even the 2cd Rozsa Concert recording was terrific. I never warmed up to the Elmer Bernstein FMC version of BAGDAD. This new 2 CD is a revelation and absolute joy to hear in a fresh modern day recording. The performances and and the songs are just wonderful. Rozsa shines here,

 

 I really cant wait to hear the new recording of BEN-HUR. I hope James would be able to employ Jim Titus for the regal artwork. But since Titus was hired by Prometheus (for BAGDAD) and it may be a matter of budget constraint for Tadlow. But it would be exciting to him on board for this title.

Nice, azahid!

I always enjoy a Tadlow recording.

Try EL CID. You won't regret it.

Thanks @Richard I have EL CID- which is one of my favourite Rozsa' scores and also the various Jarre recordings such as LAWRENCE OF ARABIA. Lately, Tadlow productions have been superlative and transcended top quality and performances. I'm a big fan of Bernard Herrmann and the OBSESSION recording is tremendous on the 5.1 blu ray audio format.

And let's not forget Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer from Poledouris! Or Rózsa's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes!

Although track titles like Wheel of Pain or The Tree of Woe might not put you into the best mindset for a day of work. ;)
