Titanic's 20th Annivesary is this December...

Is the complete score beyond all hope?

 

The release of the JP 4 disc set in time for Christmas was a smart move on La-La-La's part. I can't help but wonder if LLL or another label might be working on Horner's score as I type. 

 

I revisited the film last night, and was surprised by how short many of the unreleased cues are (namely the stuff as Jack and Rose scramble through the flooding E deck), which knowing Horner's well-justified preference for longer cues leads me to suspect that a lot more music was recorded, but dialed out in post. In another words a Lost World situation. 

 

Has a cue list with slate numbers ever surfaced?

We'll probably get a repackaging of the previously released albums. The box set will be called Back To Back To Titanic or something like that.

 

As for the cue list, as far as I know, it never surfaced.

How does it work when it comes to re-releases or expansions of soundtracks by composer who are no longer with us?

Maddeningly the complete score lies in the hands of that twat of trader known as rarescores. 35 cues and 864 pages. I wonder what secrets that ocean holds.

Back to the Backseat of the Car Back on Titanic pop song compilation?

Getting that ticket was the best thing that ever happened to me. It admitted me to a screening of you. And I'm thankful for that, Titanic. I'm thankful.

It's been 20 years, and I can still smell the fresh polycarbonate. The CD had never been abused. The sleeve had never been jizzed on. Titanic was called the Score of Dreams, and it was. It *really* was...

If they do release the complete score, I hope it includes the music Horner composed for this trailer:
 

 

Pretty awesome! Notice how Bill Paxton says "85 years" rather than 84. They must have thought the film would be delayed into 1998.

Now you know there was a man named James Horner, and that he saved me, in every way a person can be saved.  I don't even have a complete Titanic score of his.  He exists now... only in my memory.

They're probably waiting for the 200th anniversary of the sinking.  See you all then!

It was the most satisfying conclusion to a trilogy ever.

Skipper RMS Titanic, this is InGen harbor master. You are approaching iceberg at flank speed. Reduce at once, over.

My problem is that we don't want the sessions to be released. We THINK we do, but it's just going to be bad. What we really should want is a new, high quality, movie-faithful (I mean so it would fit the sync points like the sessions probably do, not recreating the horrible chopped-up edits of the movie) rerecording with a full symphonic orchestra and a big choir instead of the synth horribleness which was used for budget reasons, but that's even more out of reach.

Of course, it is. It's the ice trilogy

I do see your point. But that synth horribleness is precisely what made this score so iconic. Titanic being one of the best selling albums ever in any genre is rather hard to ignore (it's probably in top 20 or something).

Didn't the rerecordings found on the Back To Titanic album still feature a synth choir? Seems like Horner was fond of that crap.

The LSO suites had both live choir and synths. So yeah, think it was intentional.

It's easy for me to ignore that, just like it's easy for me to ignore the popularity of Drake.

It's not easy to ignore Drake. Not sure if you even gave it a proper go. ;)

TITANIC'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY IS THIS DECEMBER.

Not to be unkind to anybody, but...so?

It's CE3K's 40th, this November, and both THE WITCHES IF EASTWICK's, and INNERSPACE's 30th, this Summer. I'll be celebrating their anniversaries, instead.

TITANIC, is a good, and very popular film, but, that's about all.

It, somehow, suits TITANIC, as much as the female chor suits TESB, or "inside the mothership". Personally, I don't mind it.

It seems everyone knows about the Ice cinematic universe apart from Steef.
