    I'm sure not sure about the Chargers today. Seriously, I'm so grateful that Stromberg/Morgan made the effort to make the recording available.

    No, we don't. Because Erik inexplicably has contracted a rare disease of the inner ear which prevents him from hearing the THUNDEROUS MAGNIFICENCE and SHINING MAJESTY of the Conan rerecording.

    So it's probably gonna be some K-TEL all synth rerecording of Jan Hammer's greatest. :huff:

  2. Hi Erik, I'm a huge fan of rerecordings and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your list. Some of my very favourite albums were on there and and you brought my attention to a couple of gems I was unfamiliar with.

    I'm on an island 50 miles off the coast of Belize at the moment and bizarrely I was listening to the RSNO 'Vertigo' just before I read your choice thinking that it must be one of the best rerecordings ever, great choice!

    I think if I could take one Goldsmith to a desert island, it would probably be that one. I listen to it a lot. Covers a few different sides of him. smile

  4. Erik, not to dispute your choice, but have you heard 'that other' VERTIGO re-recording that was done to accompany a laserdisc release, and was regarded by the few who'd heard it as a candidate for Best recording of the material? I haven't heard it myself, but I'm familiar with McNeely, Muir Mathieson, and many of the readings of the suite, but not this one.

    If you are talking about the James Conlon recording, which accompanied a book, then yes, I have heard it. Alan actually ask me about it on Facebook and here is what I wrote.

    While I do enjoy the Conlon album (especially since it was conducted to picture) I like McNeely's more for a few reasons... and I mentioned this on my show.

    I like the power and passion of both conductor and orchestra and the more concert hall recording by Geoff Foster really opens and expands the score and allows it to breathe.

    When doing my research on the recording I came across this at the Bernard Herrmann Society web site.

    ----

    McNeely was after authenticity, however, and in this case considered Herrmann's original conducting notations to be the most valid source for guidance in reconstructing the work,

    McNeely states,"We were doing the opening and it seemed awfully fast by Herrmann's instructions,"

    McNeely recalled when asked about the difference in the score's timings.

    "I considered changing it for a while and then I said, no, this is the way he intended it and this is how it's got to be. The opening figures are in a very specific time, like a pulse."

    ----

    So in all, passionate conducting by Mr. McNeely (using Herrmann's original notations,) precise performances by the RSNO and a brilliant, dynamic recording by Geoff Foster put this recording above the rest.
