There was some recent post on HZ.com saying that The Wind or The Zero Boys was going to release on CD soon, though where they got that information from I'm not sure. The latter would certainly fit the FB post description well, since that was only on LP prior.

I think Zimmer is calling the music "shit", not this release of it.  Like, he doesn't think it's his best work.


I don't think he was implying the title wasn't licensed properly.

 

Agreed.

Yeah that's probably it. I don't see how something would get released from an actual label without going through the proper channels.

Could have sworn he worked on Varèse releases. I must be delusional. 

 

I have done both for years.  I was a contractor since 2014.  I moved on a little bit ago to build NFN up as I wasn't giving it the attention it deserved.

So I decided to double check the Zero Boys page to refresh on the comments I mentioned earlier, and found this fascinating exchange happened recently:

(Stéphane is the real name for Hybrid Soldier, if anyone is curious)

 

Not really sure what to make of this, besides Zimmer maybe begrudgingly agreeing to it as a means of appeasing his associates and die hard fans (do note how the FB post would've more addressed the casual crowd presumably). Had to really have changed his mind fairly late for this to hold any weight.

After rereading it, it definitely sounds like Zimmer was only insulting his own music, he just communicated that... quite poorly.

Novelist Sian Anderson travels to the solitude Greek island Monemvasia from her Los Angeles home to write her newest mystery book; she is also advised that a strong and massive wind will occur throughout the night and is recommended to stay indoors while the wind blows from the sea. While writing her novel, she witnesses the local handyman, Phil, murder her landlord, Elias Appleby, and soon comes under attack from the crazed psychopath while the deadly wind continues to occur throughout the night.

 

Featuring music by Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers and never before released on CD. When we approached Omega to release this score, we were hoping for pristine masters and they definitely had them. This is a great 80s horror score augmented by some great orchestral passages.

I guess my prediction was wrong! I’m less familiar with this era, I should change that...

Unless I’ve missed something, they’ve been awfully quiet on the release front for quite some time (years).

Yes, I don’t really consider them in business anymore, but they did release Slipstream without approval from the proper rights holders. 
 

Music Box Records also did the same with Morricone’s Orca.

The only Myers score I'm familiar with is The Witches, which I like a lot.  Been meaning for a few years now to check out some of his other work.

Yeah I bought Slipstream in good faith from them. 
 

I think I’ve only bought 1-2 other releases from Perseverance.

Did we ever find out what their "Holy grail" title they promised for years was?

Great news. I'm totally unfamiliar with this. But all Zimmer/Myers collabs deserve a release.

 

Zimmer disagrees, and quite strongly, too.

He's been chasing this one score i won't disclose. Rights headache.

So you agree that it's a holy grail to a lot of fans... Or is it just a holy grail for himself

Me?  Nah.  Him?  Yes.  Fans?  Professional take, yes.
