    A better release of North's Spartacus really would be a treat. Would be a sure purchase for me, I am quite fond of North as some of you might recall. Really nice brass work in that score. And the love theme of course - lovely as often is the case with North.


    I would definitely buy it! Brilliant score.

    I think the Spartacus release should be an essential purchase for everyone on this board.

    Alex North isn't to many peoples taste though Erik. Personally I think North is one of those composers where if you put the time and erffort in to giving him a good listen then it's incredibly rewarding music full of great depth and ingenuity.

    Yeah, but this is Spartacus we are talking about. Arguably one of the greatest film scores ever composed!

    And I totally agree with you but sadly I think many people would be indifferent to a deluxe release of this great score.

    I would love to be proved wrong though. wink

    I only know the famous Love Theme from Spartacus, which is great but I think that I would buy the CD just based on all these raves. I'm really curious why this is one of the all-time greats.

    Is this a re-recording, like in the excellent case of Exodus, or is it a rerelease?
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Seriously? Have you been reading the FSM board these last few years? It's like THE holy cow for almost everyone, and even the SLIGHTEST sense of criticism is met with scorn. There are like 723 threads, each with 5323 replies.

    Be warned, though. The rest of the score is NOTHING like the love theme. Mostly harsh dissonance and/or screaming brass and percussion, Alex North Roman-style. Don't get me wrong, I like the score very much, and even have a fan-made expansion of the MCA CD (!), but I would never purchase a C&C edition. In fact, I would have been content with the MCA disc if I didn't get that fan disc.

    Varese is much more discerning than the other labels at producing these things. I wouldn't necessarily assume it will be C&C. Let's wait and see.

  1. Posted by LLLR at FSM:

    I already know that this year our planned major MAJOR release dates are 3/23, 4/20, 5/4, 7/20 and 11/30. And we are going to try to stick to those dates as best as we can.



    We already know 3/23 will be "Eraser", so that gives you an idea of the range for "major MAJOR" releases those dates will yield. Gives one time to save money, just in case.

  2. New Varese Club is March 1st.


    Prediction:

    A North
    Conti or Bernstein
    A short score limited to 1,000 that's not too great to begin with.

    Or an entire batch of okay to disappointing titles.

    Is it THE North that people have been speculating on recently?

    Wow, great! So, La-La Land then?
    What do you hear? Nothing but the rain...
  5. LLLR is really quick to confirm/deny leaked information, so as soon as they see it, they'll let us know, and I'll post the reply here. They really should register and join us at MT though.

  6. And so it is:

    Like I needed another reason to hate Twitter? LOL

    Well, yes -- the cat is out of the bag... or the alien is out of the ship, so to speak.

    ID4 is coming (and Giachinno fan, you just made me realize how old I am getting by not knowing what ID4 referred to -- lol)

    We are wrapping it up now.

    Its a 2 disc set.

    5000 units

    $29.98 SRP

    It's produced by Nick Redman and Mike Matessino, supervised by Didier Deutsch at Sony Special Products.

    I'll let you guys know a week in advance when it will be made available for order.

    And, yes -- Mr. Arnold will be signing some at no extra charge.

    Best,

    I'm sure you mean by that the alien space theme for when they see the shuttle for the first time? wink

    there is so much stuff there that deserves to be heard, including with that the passing of the president's wife

    ah, one less unobtainable score to delete from my list cheesy
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh
  9. Yeah, I mean the first lady theme.

  11. I love the little heroic motif when the gang is preparing for the final battle, about the time when Russel Casse (Randy Quaid's characters) almost fires a missile while on the ground. Like with the Godzilla release there's an incredible amount of worthy stuff that screamed for a release. That day has finally come !!! punk

    The score makes the movie awesome and a delight to watch and hear.

    He also said, when the issue of Arnold leaking the ID4 news in a Tweet, said he hopes "Now, if Williams Tweets anything...". Make of that what you will.
