Don't ban anyone on my account. They got me fair and square. No harm done ... Peace, D

A good haul today 

LaLaLand's Hard Rain finally arrived today, after spending 2 1/2 weeks sitting in UK customs.

 

Not a particularly revelatory release - there's only 10-15 minutes unreleased, and the original album already sounded fine, but it's nice to have the whole thing in film order, and there are a handful of cues that provide a bit more of a break from the action.

I wanted the Shawshank OST, even if I have the expanded release, I'm like that.

Shawshank is Newman at his unusually most concise at constructing an OST. The opening track, May is from somewhere in the middle of the film and I wonder if he put that instead of the courtroom scene in order to give the album a bit of a happier opening.

 

I find the expansion too long though - it's another case of my using it to create an alternative OST, around the same length as the original. I dropped the more depressing 'introspective' material (New Fish, Sisters, Zihuatanejo, etc) and preferred the opening scene, the dramatic material surrounding the escape, and the immediate aftermath where Dufresne is driving to the coast.

Yeah . To quote a Jwfan .." It sounds pretty  good for a recording from the seventies"😁

 

As far as I remember, that was in reference to The Cowboys, and clearly applied specifically to *soundtrack* recordings. And a significant share of soundtrack recordings from the 70s certainly are either not as good recorded or not as well preserved, or probably both, as "classical" recordings from the 70s and even 60s.

Well, I have the 2cd edition and the blue box but I bought Superman (again!).

Does it contain anything that the other editions don't have aside from the ost and the alternate Fortress of Solitude?

The ost was the first ost I had ever heard in my life (aside from the picture, at a time when I didn't know that film music is released on LPs, cds etc.) and the reason I started collecting soundtracks.

Everything else in better sound? I think that's about it.

Yes.  listen to the track "I Can Fly (Flying Sequence Alternate Segment)" carefully.

 

But really the main selling point is that all three discs were completely rebuilt from scratch using the original 1st gen multi track (that actual tape that ran in the room recording the orchestra), which had been sitting in a salt mine in Kansas since 1978 and had never been used for anything since the original recording, until it was found and transferred for this project.  All previous albums used later generation mixes with analog audio loss, this is a brand new mix from the full original multichannel

No, I do not know why the forum turned the photos sideways 

What it the multidisc set to the left?
