Seeing those McNeely TinkerBell scores at half price is pretty heartbreaking. They’re amazing (honestly they collectively constitute his magnum opus IMO; they’re his Lord of the Rings), and I was really hoping Intrada might tackle the wonderful wintry fourth score (Secret of the Wings) but that looks unlikely now…
 

Highly recommend these to any of you who don’t have them, particularly the first and second (Lost Treasure).

The amount of releases on that page that I bought at full price, and haven't gotten around to listening to yet, is staggering.

I’m glad to see them at that price.  I thought they were nice enough in the movies when I watched them with my kid, but I never considered them $20-nice.  Picked up all three tonight.

Hopefully they grow on you more! Though the original is a wonderful introduction to the musical world, my favorite is the second, perhaps tied with the (sadly unreleased) fourth.

The only titles I’d want from this sale are the Tinker Bells (which I already have) and the rerecordings which are all available digitally and I think in high res.

We invite you to take advantage of the nice sale prices attached to a number of our releases, specially discounted from now through October 2, 2022. We don’t run sales like this often. Hopefully you will find some titles of interest, priced to own.

As happens from time to time, we are in a holding pattern on final packaging approvals for several new releases all ready for manufacturing… with some really cool ones in the bunch, too! We’re also amidst some major new upgrades and additions to the Intrada studio while we wait, with quite a few new curves to learn. Fun!

William Stromberg and Anna Bonn are finalizing the complete scores and parts for the two upcoming Bernard Herrmann recordings we are readying. The Man Who Knew Too Much and On Dangerous Ground are the two masterpieces on the docket. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra is again our performing group of choice. Setting the actual session dates has taken a bit longer than what we have encountered in the past for a couple of reasons, one being the growing popularity of the musicians and their magnificent hall. We like to think Intrada has been a factor in their increased profile, even if just in a minuscule way. The other reason is our musician requirements are significantly larger than our previous sessions, with the addition of a larger brass section than we typically utilize. Six trombones, six trumpets, eight French horns, two tubas… and a sizable string and percussion section to balance with all those horn players… as well as a key soloist on the viola d’amore parts for On Dangerous Ground. We're even planning on recording Nathan Van Cleave's fabulous VistaVision logo that appears in front of The Man Who Knew Too Much and so many other Paramount films from the era. Yep. It’s all going to be impressive for sure.

With all these accolades, it sounds like the Tinker Bell scores are worth a blind buy.  The samples sounded good, too.  Just ordered the first two along with Muppets Most Wanted.

The original Maurice Jarre score for Prancer is a true Christmas score classic, I simply adore it.  I wonder if this new score will use Jarre's music at all, probably not.

I own the film on blu-ray and I love it, but I don't remember anything about the music.

I should revisit it this Christmas.

It's the final cue especially that I listen to a ton every December.  Just gorgeous.

Rather sad that this is Intrada's last release for the year. I had hoped for something a bit more "wow".


Don’t lose hope yet; Roger wrote in the same post: “As things (if things) break free from approvals, I will post here.”

That's one of those things where regardless of my interest I am SOOOO happy for the people who wanted it and the people who worked on it.

Oh WOW!  Do we know the story behind why it was delayed for so long?

 

I would re-buy the first film's score if they wanted to give it another sonic upgrade.

Next week hopefully offers Thanksgiving food and family gatherings for everyone and, for certain, Mark McKenzie’s highly personal (and HMMA-nominated) score for Universal’s new Prancer: A Christmas Tale for his fans to enjoy listening to. Gorgeous it is. And following on its heels - after an eternity of red tape and treading water - we can finally bring you Basil Poledouris’s beloved and oft-requested Conan the Destroyer soundtrack, from the actual film’s three-channel session masters, expanded for the first time ever. Yes, this is the original soundtrack with its unequaled vibrant performance and recording.

 

Complicated licensing issues resulted in Basil’s original (and brief) 1984 MCA album program appearing on a second disc. Basil completed the score for the June 1984 release of the movie, jumped right into scoring Red Dawn and guided us into licensing our first release - that very score for Red Dawn, launching the Intrada label. We discussed his two Conan scores at length way back when and happily have not only his 1984 sequel score available but also in our catalog the entire original 1982 Conan The Barbarian score on a 3-CD set, featuring his lengthy magnum opus and a plethora of alternate cues he recorded as well. Conan may look to Crom for his eternal rest, but look to Intrada for his music!

 

In contrast with the excitement of the Destroyer music is a release of newly-recorded premieres featuring delightful original piano pieces written by Dimitri Tiomkin for concert and stage performance, played to perfection by Lynda Cochrane, virtuoso pianist of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Lynda has worked with us on our previous RSNO releases as well as having played for composers like Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein and numerous others. It’s all great music for you to consider adding to your ever-growing library!
