Good news on this. I checked with MRT and although he didn’t have any tapes himself a DAT was sent to JG at the time and has been found by Carol and the score is being worked on for release by a label who releases JG soundtracks quite a lot. But be warned how long it will take to do the paperwork on it is another matter so don’t hold your breath.

Hope this bodes well for Babe The Gallant Pig!

 

Fairly unconnected I think, since that score was three-quarters written, but (according to *most* if not all sources) not recorded but rejected while in mock-up stage.

 

On the other hand, The Public Eye we've known about for years from Mike Ross-Trevor (who recorded it and described it as having a dark Chinatown vibe). This is just the first hope we've ever had of a release, because Carol Goldsmith found the DAT in her husband's archives.

 

I suspect for Babe (and The Kid, for that matter) we have to hope for something like a Leigh Phillips Kickstarter...we do know the written score for both survive, at least (in the Herrick Library, along with the written scores for Black Patch and Face of a Fugitive, for that matter).

Ah, I see. I had mistakenly assumed that photo with all the labelled boxes was of actual tapes but I'm guessing it was actually for sheet music.

 

Correct. That photo was of written scores...which could be used to produce a recording if such a new recording were funded.
