    Just noticed that Intrada has another Signature Edition release of Holdridge's score for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: THE EXPLORERS - A CENTURY OF DISCOVERY up for order. It sounds excellent (almost like an IMAX score), particularly the opening cue and "Everest Ending".

    Holdridge is one helluva class act, I'd have ordered this already if money wasn't so tight.

    Stuff like this interest me far more than the latest Zimmer or RC release.

  1. BuySoundtrax has released his score to "Winterhawk":

    Lee Holdridge is a genius, and his thread deserves way more activity.

    I'm currently playing "The mists of Avalon", and this score is just filled with awesome from beginning to end. punk

    Interesting note that Holdridge basically omitted almost all of the big, epic action tracks from the album.

    I didn't know that Erik? I haven't seen it. I wonder why they were ommited? To keep a 'flow' to the album!??

    Exactly. He didn't want it to be a big, epic, action album. I should did up the interview where he said that.

    EDIT - Bingo!

    "Of course we couldn't put everything on the album. It was a difficult choice as to what to leave off, and after talking to Bob Townson a couple of times, we decided we would stress more the romance and myth of the story, and leave a lot of the battle stuff off. As much as I love the battle music, you have to see the battle. We thought the audience for the CD would enjoy listening more to the story and character aspect of the score. So I did leave a lot of the battle scenes out, but there are a few bits in there so you can get a good taste of it." - Soundtrack.net

    Thanks Erik, interesting stuff!

    Oh yeah, and I'll say it again, Holdridge is such a talent, his name really should regularly be on the big screen.

    I think it was a good decision. The CD is full of great stuff that I love dearly. The movie itself wasn´t bad either (at least a lot better than most other fantasy two-parters of that time, because some of the more disturbing ideas from the book survived (disturbing for the usual TV audience, I must add), and the music fits quite nicely, even with the New Age touch you guys are talking about over there at the Avatar topic.

    I can´t say I miss anything of the battle stuff, and I would have been very dissappointed if other good stuff would have been omitted for it.

    But they should have cut out the Loreena McKennitt song. As much as I love Loreena´s music, that specific song is not among my favourites, it was already on her original album The Mask & Mirror, and it doesn´t fit to the rest of the music, while the other song that closes the CD is much better.

    Cool, Erik, didn't know that. I'm curious to hear what they left out, as I'm sure it's grand.

    This score deserves a 2CD release for sure.

    One of Intrada's releases today sounds like it might be quite good, though I daresay it will get lost in the fuss. I've ordered it - Holdridge's In Search of Peace.

    Of the 2 Intrada releases today this is the one I'm more inclined to buy!
  2. Not skipping my attention, just can't afford it -- saving up for stuff next year. If not so limited, this would be a purchase for sure.

    Wouldn't it be easier to purchase this one now and hold on the BTTF for next year? The latter isn't really limited so there's plenty of time.
  3. Anyone heard his 'I Have Not Forgotten You'?

    I thought the clips sounded really good so I ordered it. I then noticed that I've never even taken the previous Holdridge CD I bought (In Search of Peace) out of its shrinkwrap.

    It's probably one of the greatest scores I own. Removed that shrink wrap.

    Also, if you enjoy this new one, check out the previous one, "I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN YOU
    : THE LIFE & LEGACY OF SIMON WIESENTHAL"
    , which is very low last I heard, somewhere below 50 copies left.

    A re- release called East of Eden and other motion picture and television music of Lee Holdridge with Charles Gerhardt conducting the London Symphony Orchestra (the old Citadel release). A nice compilation of material especially if you're not familiar with him.
    listen to more classical music!
  6. Wow. That should be something. I see it's released by the BSX label. It's on discogs but nowhere else so far, as far as I can see.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.
