    Yes, you are being mean. What might not scare you will scared the bajesus out of someone else. And just because he is nine doesn't mean he has the mentality of a nine-year old. And you have no idea what this kid has and hasn't been exposed to. Imagination is a powerful thing.

    Herrmann's music probably brought to life all the 18 certificate videos the kids have been watching on TV/internet.

    Erik, I should point out that this article is from The Daily Mail, the scummiest rag flogged in UK newsagents. I won't dismiss the article totally but it maybe should be taken with a large pinch of salt.

    I didn't know about the paper's reputation so I take what I said back. Apparently they did a similar article last year about Psycho and a scared student. Pretty lame!

    You can put as much salt on shit as you want, but it'll still taste like shit.

    A review of the new Kritzerland release of "The Day the Earth Stood Still." I think that the extra bonus material will be enough reason for people to get it.

    Always good to see Herrmann's music being talked about.

    It's a shame though that your review (and recommendation) was posted after the album was sold out, and a bit more detail on the additional cues unavailable elsewhere would have added a bit more substance.

  4. Just pre-ordered Music Box Records' upcoming release of Bernard Herrmann's Obsession. Looking forward to this.

    It will have no bearing whatsoever on my plans to get the upcoming re-recording of Herrmann's score.

    Kritzerland have just announced a new release of 'Beneath the 12 mile reef'. I've long been hoping for another release of this since missing out on the FSM release. I love the Gerhardt suite but really looking forward to getting my hands on the whole thing. Very excited to get my hands on this!

    I have the Fox, FSM, and RCA suite. I wonder if it will be an improvement sound wise.
    Tom

  6. I remember the sound being less than stellar on the FSM version and, unless there is a new source, improvements will be difficult to achieve. Unless hearing the score's failings in sound quality more clearly can be deemed as "an improvement".

    Listening to some of the clips, any sound improvements don't warrant a "double dip".

    By far the best sounding is the Gerhardt suite.

    I am sure it is! It's a shame that the suite is so limited in its selection from the score. Tracks such as "The Conch Boat/The Harbor", "Elegy" and "The Grave" are my stand-out tracks but they don't seem to be featured on Gerhardt's suite.

    It is a suite and Gerhardt probably had some difficult decisions to make.

    Lately between CD's I've been going back to Hangover Square and the Concerto Macabre by Bernard.

  8. I recently got a copy of Holst's "The Planets" that Herrmann conducted for Phase IV and I've really been enjoying his interpretation. The tempo is generally much slower and he accentuates sections of the orchestra you don't really notice in other recordings, at certain moments he almost makes it sound like a Herrmann score! Does anyone know if he conducted any other classical recordings?

    Yes John he did. There is a pretty famous recording of Raff's Symphony No. 5 'Lenore' on Unicorn.
    http://www.amazon.com/Raff-Symphony-No- … B000001PBH

    Like the Planets it is at times agonizingly slow taking 10 minutes more than Neeme Jarvi if you've heard of him. Feel free to pm me if you have further questions.

  9. Thanks Tom, I'll have to check that out, I'm not familiar with Raff's Symphony No. 5 at all.

    I really like Neeme Järvi, I have all of (I think) his Prokofiev recordings with the RSNO.

    What do you think of the Herrmann conducted 'The Planets' Tom?

    I think it is too slow. There are so many good 24 bit 96hz recordings out there. I would encourage you to have a listen to this one.

    A little BBC story about Herrmann and Obsession:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/article … -obsession

    (He really thought the film was that good that he cried at it? That doesn't tally up with the stories out there about the younger Herrmann!)

    I've heard that he was very emotional and 'fragile' towards the end of his life -- as recounted by director Larry Cohen, whom he worked with during that time.
    I am extremely serious.
  10. Didn't he also cry at the end of the Taxi Driver sessions?

    Kritzerland announced the release of The White Witch Doctor. If you have the Gerhardt/Herrmann release I don't think you'll need this one unless you're a completest.

  11. I must be a completist then! Looking forward to the original tracks.

    That's not entirely accurate. Chandos, Tribute Film Classics and Tadlow are labels I look forward to listening to. I never really got into the Gerhardt re-recordings when I first got into film music, tending to shy away from the presentation of scores as suites.
