    Ah, this will drop the estimated value of -by far!- the most expensive CD in my collection by a couple of hundred quid. sad
    Oh well.
    It was never about the money in the first place.

    I *am* very curious to learn if the remastering adds any depth to the album.
    The version I have is technically fine, but -to my ears- a little flat.

    Annnnnd here it is (for pre-order), and even if I have purchased -at considerable expense (in fact so much that I am embarassed to mention it here)- the original Polydor release many years ago, I will in fact double-dip for this release:

    The score is given a new, expanded release, including the full program of the original Polydor soundtracks with several bonuses. The new 2-CD not only improves the sound and contains over 35 minutes of previously unreleased music from the composer's archives, but also corrects the incorrectly reversed stereo channels of the original Polydor release. Even if you own the original LPs or the now out-of-print CD re-issue, the new release brings something new in all departments.


    Go on, go on over and listen to the clips.
    It's a stunner!

    Did anyone ever watch that "In The Tracks of Georges Delerue" DVD that came out a few years ago?

  1. Thomas Glorieux has a review of La Révolution Française by George Delerue online on the main page. I prefer tracks 1 through 22 of CD 1, as he does. It's the content of the original album btw. Beyond the fabulous main theme my favourite cue is Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    indeed, the original album was more than enough for me. However a much better sound quality lead me to this double disc smile
