So

 

Tuesday June 26: Colossus: The Forbin Project by Michel Colombier

 

August: The Prisoner of Zenda by Henry Mancini

 

TBD: Two Mules for Sister Sara by Ennio Morricone

TBD: Airport '77 by John Cacavas

TBD: The Concorde: Airport '79 by Lalo Schifrin

TBD: Fletch Lives by Harold Faltermeye

TBD: The Sentinel by Gil Melle

 

Colimbier? Mancini? Morricone? Cacavas? Melle?

That's enought to make any self-respecting film music fan salivate.

I can't wait for THE FORBIN PROJECT (aka COLOSSUS).

Jeff Bond says

 

Would you prefer the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death? Mull it over while you listen to Michel Colombier's score to Colossus: The Forbin Project, a haunting blend of avant-garde science fiction, jazz and even religious organ music, in amazing sound put together by Mike Matessino (who should just be given a massive government grant to restore everything) with a booklet written by me:

So close, yet so far...

Truth be told, the Universal Heritage Collection was supposed to kick off with Sugarland Express, but after careful consideration the project was dropped at the request of the composer. Bummer too, because it was pretty darn awesome!

Perhaps one day...

He’s just giving the score way more mystique than it deserves by continuing to deny its release.  It’s a fun little score for a fun little movie.  It lacks the depth of his other rural South idiomatic scores (like The River or Rosewood), but makes up for it with winking charm.  Release the tapes, Johnny!

It gives the score this veneer of unattainability.  I’m willing to bet a lot of people will order it when it is released because of this and a fair number will listen and say, “This is it???”

 

And I’m a fan of the score!

I had a similar reaction when I finally sat down and watched the film. But the cues for when the couple leaves the prison, and when the police chase them after mortally wounding Clovis are just to die for

Dammit, I'd really hoped JW might have softened his stance on this one just as he has expansions generally in recent years. But this would probably be a fairly recent decision, the last twelve months or so, so I'd say that's that.

 

They won't be asking him again for many years. 

 

At least we know the session tapes must be available and in reasonable condition. Would be interested to know if the tapes were at least scanned before JW nixed the release.

Just put on other Horner scores! Chances are, you'll find whatever you guys like about Apollo 13 in there!

The promo is missing some essential cues like Night Before the Launch, Jim's News Cast Story and Aquarius Farewell.

You have to decide: There's either 3 completely unreleased scores remaining unreleased or a dead composer. Within the next decade the former will be replaced by the latter anyway. You all know it.

Yeah, how long do you reckon it'll take for this score to get out once JW has passed on?

Not much time will pass.

No no, wait until he has finished Episode 9.

That'd be nice.

Given the relationship LLL and MM now have with JW, he must be pretty strongly against this being released.

 

I've never seen the film and only have the two re-recordings (Greatest Hits and 40 Years) which are kinda cute.

Yep, can't see him ever relenting if he's turned it down recently, after so many years trying to change his mind.

Huge bummer about Sugarland.  At least the tapes exist and were hopefully transferred before the decision was made to not release it.

 

BTW, the second title in this series came out with very little fanfare.  Anybody pick it up?

La-La Land Records and Universal Pictures proudly present the second title in the Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection -- the world premiere release of legendary composer Henry Mancini’s (THE GREAT RACE, THE PINK PANTHER, A SHOT IN THE DARK) original motion picture score to the 1979 period comedy THE PRISONER OF ZENDA, starring Peter Sellers, Lynne Frederick and Lionel Jeffries, and directed by Richard Quine. Never before officially available in any format, Mancini’s exceedingly graceful score is a revelation – a wondrous orchestral work that expertly weaves together comedy, romance, patriotism and adventure, with all the richness and lush orchestration for which the composer is renowned. Produced, mixed and mastered by Mike Matessino from studio vault elements, this special release is limited to 3000 units and features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Jeff Bond and sharp art design by Dan Goldwasser.

So what are people’s most wanted Universal scores?

Lee Holdridge - Skyway To Death (1974) [TV]

John Cacavas - The Elevator (1974) [TV]

Columbo (1971-2003) [TV]

 

Howard Goodall's Bean (1997) / Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007) is Universal, too I think?
