Vanilla 1.1.4 is a product of Lussumo. More Information: Documentation, Community Support.

 
  1. I think that it was mentioned somewhere that Trevor Jones is trying to release a legitimate version of Excalibur.

    Some recent additions:

    The Professionals - Laurie Johnson
    *The Good Shepherd - Marcelo Zarvos & Bruce Fowler
    *Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles - Scott Glasgow
    Journey To The Center of The Earth - Andrew Lockington
    *Hellsing - Yasushi Ishii
    Department S - Edwin Astley
    *Catch and Release - Brian Transeau & Tommy Stinson

    *Acquired from James at the weekend - old promotional discs he was looking to get rid of. Of these four CDs Catch & Release and The Good Shepherd have some lovely moments. Hellsing is a really god-awful CD!!

    The Lockington CD has some really good action & emotional cues and is well worth hunting down.

    And as with the 3-CD NetworkDVD release of Astley's Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) their 3-CD release of Department S maybe a bit too long (upwards of 200 cues!) But an interesting nostalgia trip nonetheless.

    I just ordered my first two Trevor Jones CDs today.

    The first is From Hell.

    The second has somewhat of an interesting story to it.
    I was looking to order the Excalibur soundtrack and learned that there were only 2,000 copies (or something around there) produced. According to soundtracks.net the estimated value of it was $85. So I found it on Amazon and there were two users selling copies. One of the users wanted $16.98, the other user wanted $2,000 (+$2.98 shipping) for the one soundtrack. Very excited to recieve this CD.

    That Dark Crystal 2-disk CD is also proving hard to come by.


    Sorry to hear DARK CRYSTAL is proving hard to find? It's Jones very best score imo.

    LLL has the album for sale for $10.

    The 2 disc is long OOP, is it really necessary?

    At a push I'd say no it isn't! The original album representation is superb, I think I've only played the original tracks disc twice.

    I've played it just once. It's a lovely curiosum, to be sure, but the album representation blows if completely out of the water.
    Trust me: THAT is the way to go, and a tenner is an absolute steal for this brilliant album.
    Classic example of 'less is more.'
    DON'T hold out for the two-CD album. Get this one.
    You'll be both cheaper and better off!!!

  5. A few arrived today:

    Rabbit-Proof Fence - Peter Gabriel
    Brideshead Revisited - Adrian Johnston
    She - Max Steiner (TFC)
    Papillon - Jerry Goldsmith
    Mishima - Philip Glass

    Filling a few holes in my collection. Both Mishima and Brideshead Revisited sound as though they are going to be enjoyable listens. She's great to hear with good sound compared to the original. And I'm (at last) giving Papillon a chance...

    Rabbit-Proof Fence may be a tricky one to enjoy...

    Rabbit-proof fence is a rather touching film and score, a very strong and emotional experience especially if you've watched the movie too.

    Indeed! I can´t wait to give a proper listen to The Film Music of Ron Goodwin (thanks Tim for the recommendation wink ) and all the John Scott stuff. Lot of work to do!

    Good question?

    I remember it being recommended. And my only other Gabriel purchase (The Last Temptation of Christ) was certainly a challenging listen - and quite different from most other film music I was familiar with. I'm hoping that this one will be just as challenging - and also rewarding.

    It would be terrible if it was always so easy to enjoy the music immediately!!

    There's been a few packages arriving recently. Some more acquisitions/purchases (some quite cheap) and some as a direct result of the Bristol gathering:

    The Ghost and The Darkness - Jerry Goldsmith
    Congo - Jerry Goldsmith
    "Christus Apollo" - Jerry Goldsmith
    Empire of The Sun - John Williams
    Seven Years In Tibet - John Williams
    The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou - Mark Mothersbaugh
    Blue Thunder - Arthur B. Rubinstein
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit - Alan Silvestri
    Obscure - Olivier Deriviere
    Obscure 2: The Aftermath - Olivier Deriviere

    But Martijn don't count out the Fireworks suite. While Christus Apollo isn't everyones cup of tea... and those 12 tone pieces are really not everyones cup of tea... the album makes up for it with a rousing fireworks score that is one of my all time favorite Goldsmith pieces.

    CHRISTUS APOLLO vomit is worth having due to the fact the piece FIREWORKS is included.

    I'm hard pressed to think of anything WORSE than Christus Apollo slant

    EDIT : and Erik just beat me to it cool beer

    Within the last few days, in the mail I received:

    Invaders From Mars - Chris Young / David Storrs
    Masters of the Universe - Bill Conti

    Today, from my local Best Buy:

    300 - Tyler Bates
    Wanted - Danny Elfman
    Hellboy II - Danny Elfman
    Iron Man - Ramin Djawadi

    These titles should give a wonderful listening experience for the next few days.
  7. Thanks for the opinions everyone!

    Of the haul that I got the Goldsmith CDs were certainly the highlights. The "Christus Apollo" purchase was certainly for the "Fireworks" piece - I had been warned at James' BBQ that "Fireworks" was way ahead of the rest of the pieces on the CD. And this piece features on his Goldsmith compilation.

    Both Blue Thunder and Who Framed Roger Rabbit were not actually bought - some kind soul CD-R'd them for me. Which was a relief because I thought they were terrible. As was The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
