  1. I saw this update on LLL website today about STAR TREK II: UPDATE: We greatly apologize for the wait on WRATH OF KHAN shipments, as this delay was unexpected. We expect re-stock by month's end, if not before. If KHAN is only a portion of your overall current order, and you wish us to get that out to you now (and send KHAN separately later) please let us know at info@lalaland-ent.com
  2. Thanks. Since I haven't heard Disc 1 as yet is the Flugelhorn version found on Disc 1 program in any form/variation or is it exclusive to Disc 2 OST?
  3. I see. Again what were the new tracks introduced on CD 2 which were basically re-recorded but not included?
  4. Well, I finally found time to listen to the OST album and its stunning. For me its certainly a 'Lost score' since I never had it or heard the original OOP album. And hearing it first in pristine sound- remastered et al is a great experience. I have opted to play this disc2 first and will continue to play only this until I'am completely familiar with the mood and presentation of the programed music. Thereby giving me enough ground before I experience the film version of the score - which most of you find superior as a presentation and sound. Can this really be better sounding than JAWS after all ? Right now the previously unreleased 'Flugelhorn' version of the 'Eiger Theme' is certainly getting the most replay of all the cues. I just love the smoky/sultry jazz inspiration here.
  5. Looks like the next Intrada release is TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD paired with WALK ON THE WILD SIDE. Just revealed by Roger Figelson on the FSM Board. Basically, I think its the AVA Recordings set being reissued in piecemeal. The set itself is now sold out. (Intrada had previously come close to releasing the original film recording of MOCKINGBIRD years ago only to get the release canceled when an approval was denied by a producer of the film) Timely conversation because our next release is a reissue of the Ava Mockingbird paired with Walk on the Wild Side on a single disc. But I wouldn't put that in print and I'll deny it if anyone says I said anything. https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=145213&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=1&r=870#bottom
  6. Come to think of it there may have been a more earlier version which Horner may have composed but never recorded. That piece may have been more closer to the Orff piece. Somehow the discussion that Horner made makes subtle reference to it. This new alternate which he recorded probably didn’t satisfy both of them and Horner then made the final version ..
  7. Eventually Zwick liked this final version better. Because it still sounded like Carmina Burana but different from the the first version. I find 3 elements which are reminiscent of the Orff piece, the opening, the mid section with the drive and the conclusion. JAMES HORNER: And .. Ed Zwick, the director, left me alone. I did a new sequence that was original music and put it in and he ended it up liking it much better than any of the stuff that we’ve done before. JAMES HORNER: But we never would have gone to that point unless I forced the issue by actually going legally to close the Carmina Burana or we would be sued by the Estate. All of those things happened. It’s fascinating. Sometimes, sometimes.. directors, you know, put temporary mood.. music in a movie ..and they would fall in love with it. And no composer alive can get him out of that way of thinking. That’s .. how he starts thinking. He edits the movie with that music in it, he dreams about it, he thinks about it, or she thinks about it ..
  8. Innerspace was my first Goldsmith score. I loved that edit. But LLL edition is something else. This should be back in print with the OST
  9. Iam not even discussing that version. It’s separate story. It’s woven from the same cloth as every knows very well. We are talking about the original version and it’s exclusion in the OMNI book. Didn’t you read Horner’s discussion I posted a few days ago.?
  10. I’m still saying thing as you are saying above except that you are suggesting it’s not like anything like Carmina Burana. Because I think it’s the version that Ed Zwick wanted and Horner made a lot of hue and cry of not following those instructions because of the impending legal complications. So, eventually it got recorded - it’s that piece which is basically on disc 2 and is not on the book for those reasons. The Silva version is not exactly the same as Jean pointed out in his article.
  11. My dears , Iam referring to the 2nd version on the OST which that was recorded by Silva and The book surely doesn’t show that piece. That piece was the first draft written by Horner and eventually rejected because of being to close to the original Carmina Burana .Right? Lol. You were correct. Your English is quite splendid . Take a bow.
  12. The 2nd version of Charging Fort Wagner was probably excluded because of its much stronger Carmina Burana influence which probably would have required legal clearance from the Estate. As a recorded piece different rules allowed that recording to resurface on the new LLL set.
