Roger says

One Special Collection title. A reissue of an early 80s thriller. This one took a long time because initially all we could find was the album master, but we really wanted to expand it. Finally, after extensive searching we found the 24-track masters of everything but the main and end title. The LP master was a little reverby, but everything else is now heard in crisp, detailed sound -- and much longer. Probably the most important work that emerged from this famous composer/director relationship.

Awesome.

Psycho II.

Richard Franklin also directed "Link," score by JG. I don't know if that counts as a famous composer/director relationship, though...

This is what I quickly came up with from looking at this list

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_film_director_and_composer_collaborations

Carter Burwell - Blood Simple (184)
Pino Donnagio - Dressed to Kill (1980), Blow Out (1981), Body Double (1984)
Alex North - Under the Volcano (1984)
Basil Poledouris - Red Dawn (1984)

You must be right. That was easy.

Same list I was just looking at.

Think Blow Out might be the winner.

Not even sure why you'd guess that because it's not a famous director/composer relationship, but anyway Intrada already released that score in 2010

Probably not compared to some, but wouldn't pass up the release if they did it!

Doubt that. How is that one the most important? More important than Carrie? Doubt it...

Psycho 2 on the other hand sounds just too good to be true.

Dressed to Kill is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more important than Carrie when it comes to the visuals and music. It was a perfect marriage. No other scene in the DePalma/Donaggio cannon is more perfect than the Museum sequence.

Carrie is fantastic, but Dressed to Kill is a musical masterpiece! If this is the release I'll be one happy camper!

Oh well. No Psycho II.

Dressed to kill expanded and remastered would be fantastic.

I saw the film recently on blu-ray and agree completely: the best combination of DePalma and Pino ever.

Well I'm sure it will be a great title for you early 80's thriller lovers. Me, I'm wondering what the Quartet 60's title could be.

I would have though that DRESSED TO KILL is great music for any soundtrack fan that appreciates soaring symphonic work. As said before 'The Museum' is an incredible cue. If the title is indeed this we'll hopefully finally hear the haunting music in the scene between Nancy-Allen and Michael Cain when she tells her 'erotic story'.

Dressed To Kill is finally here. It's taken a long time.

You are of course quite right, that was just a teasing post. There are a lot of great 80's scores (& even a few good ones from the 90's). I can't think of any early 80's thriller I'd like, but then I'm just a sad old sod!

Considering how well this board figures out future CD releases, shouldn't we be putting our powers of deduction into solving cold case crimes instead?

Isn't that what Reddit is for?
