  1. BASIL POLEDOURIS COLLECTION, THE: VOL. 4 - THE BLUE LAGOON: PIANO SKETCHES https://tinyurl.com/y9c5vzrl SRP: $17.95 LISTEN TO A SOUND CLIP FROM the score for "THE BLUE LAGOON: PIANO SKETCHES" https://tinyurl.com/yctuvflh THE BASIL POLEDOURIS COLLECTION, VOLUME 4 is a limited edition release of 500 units. This Title will begin shipping on the week of Nov 4, 2018 Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents a very special release of composer Basil Poledouris’s original piano sketches and demos that were recorded in his home studio as he was creating the score for 1980’s THE BLUE LAGOON. With this unique release, listeners are given the unprecedented opportunity to listen, like a fly on the wall in Basil Poledouris’ home studio, as the composer works through his themes and musical interludes on the piano in 1979. Via cassette recordings made by the composer while working, the creative process of developing this film score from his initial piano noodlings to his far more developed and confident treatments is audibly documented. As themes both familiar and unrecognized are created and discarded during the course of composition, a major film score is born. Released in 1980, Randal Kleiser’s THE BLUE LAGOON was Poledouris’ second major film score and largest breakthrough, leading to his magnificent score to CONAN THE BARBARIAN in 1982. Basil’s score for THE BLUE LAGOON was straightforwardly romantic and tropically lush, recorded with a full symphony orchestra. It provided an eloquent, yet far from pretentious, melodic sound that treated the characters’ emotional drama quite honestly and sympathetically. With this remarkable opportunity to hear the late composer at work, you’ll hear the score come together as it happens through these preserved and meticulously mastered recordings. As a bonus track, we’ve included a 10-minute recording of Basil and Randal Kleiser working over music a significant moment in the film with Emmeline’s theme, which is a fascinating glimpse into the interaction between composer and director during the creation of this score. Dragon’s Domain Records is proud to present this unique behind-the-scenes examination of the creation of Basil Poledouris’ THE BLUE LAGOON score. Mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and with exclusive liner notes by author Randall D. Larson, aided by the memories of Basil’s daughter Zoë Poledouris, is released in a limited edition of 500 units. The CDs, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, are expected to begin shipping on the first week of November. ?01. Emmeline (Demo) (2:57) 02. Sketch #1 - Main Theme (3:03) 03.

  2. I am personally still undecided... although I may actually be leaning to the Tadlow Re-Recording. But it's great to have both! How do you guys feel?

  4. I was recently talking to the Orchestrator Steven Smalley from Robocop and I asked him if Basil kept his work and he told me he had a copy of every score he did in his studio, I am curious because Robocop 1 and 3 are my favorite of his scores and if there are somewhere I can plan a visit and come study I would love to. I have already checked the Margret Herrick Library and they have nothing form Robocop there. So what did become of his scores that he had in his studio? They do not go poof and vanish? I can't find a written record of where they went. JKMS maybe? Where? Any help here would be hot.
