    There are a lot of short tracks, but I made sure we put a lot of cues together to make longer tracks that provide an optimal listening experience smile

    As for the 100th Release, as has been posted on FSM and elsewhere, it will be the 2-disc BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Season 4 soundtrack.

  6. Update of a couple of Bernstein classics

    - Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone

    and with tracktitles shocked

    Enjoy
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh
  7. I'm listening to some of Bernstein's score for The Journey of Natty Gann and there's the use of the ondes martenot - and it seems so out of place for the subject matter of the movie (from what I know of it anyway).

    Too "otherworldly" - a feeling that is as a result of the use of this instrument and the similar-sounding theremin in movies.

    I don't have the booklet to hand for this score...does anyone remember if it talks about Bernstein's use of this instrument in this score? (Or was he just going through his ondes martenot period?)

    I'm not sure it's mentioned, to be honest. I think he used it beautifully in some scores - but seemed to use it arbitrarily in others. Like this one. Some people have made "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" comments about his reasons for using it so often (specifically, the person who played it). No idea if there's anything in that.

    WHY WHY WHY?

    WHY?

    How can it possibly be the case that I can go online, press a few buttons and get myself a copy of Terry Plumeri's music for Scarecrows and yet I can't do the same for Elmer Bernstein's music for The Shootist?

    Is there NOTHING just in this world?

    Think I'll get these. Clips do indeed sound excellent. The most recent Bernstein score released in the Varese CD Club (can't even remember its name!) was also absolutely gorgeous.

    I'm thinking really hard about it but I've already committed to the Rozsa box. My budget will only stretch so far. But I like the clips. He's guessing a little too because he's up to 1500 count
    listen to more classical music!
  9. I listened to the clips and loved them - ordered (though Ernest Gold's Pressure Point had to come of my want list in order to accommodate this Bernstein double-header). Kritzerland are releasing some interesting titles.

    INTRADA presents:

    THE GREAT ESCAPE
    Composed and Conducted by ELMER BERNSTEIN
    INTRADA MAF 7112


    Intrada presents a 3-CD set featuring the music of Elmer Bernstein's The Great Escape in a definite presentation of the classic score. At the time of the film's release, Bernstein re-recorded selections with a reduced orchestra that was released on the United Artists label. The popular LP was in print for decades, and the program made its CD debut on Intrada back in 1992, followed by a couple of reissues. In 2004, the long-lost original film tracks were released on a limited edition 2-CD set which quickly went out-of-print. Now Intrada combines both the United Artists LP program and the original film tracks into a single album, providing a one stop for both albums. Featuring the original key art and cleaning up some anomalies from the film tracks, in addition to assembling the tracks as they were intended by the composer, this is the last word on and the definitive presentation of the music to The Great Escape.

    Bernstein wrote 90 minutes of score and recorded it with 62 players. It featured a theme that has become one of the most famous of film themes. As Nick Redman mentions in his detailed and authoritative notes, it's "a theme that could blow the roof off a cinema. A theme that could make an audience wild. A theme that delineated all there was to know about war, captivity, freedom and escape. A theme to thrill, a theme to engage, a theme to just plain love. A theme that, like the spirit of man itself, might just not ever die."

    All this on this specially priced, unlimited release.

    INTRADA MAF 7112
    Retail Price: $19.99
