I posted the info on these titles on the same minute as this one. Right before posting I refreshed the page and this thread didn't show. My thread is now closed. I'm sorry for informing people twice on this matter, but can someone fix the Subject Title of this one? As I understand, on the subject it should say the date of the actual releasing of the scores rather than the date the announcement was made.

When I got Doyle's "Needful Things" the booklet had the director praising "Dead Again" so naturally I sought out the score and it is amazing. Also surprised at the amount of additional music, the movie was on tv couple of weeks ago and it is scored heavily and I wouldn't be surprised a lot of new cues will be source, but even so it will be amazing to get an expanded Doyle! Is this the first time an album of his gets expanded?

Needful Things is also a fantastic score.

To those who haven't seen Dead Again and have Netflix here in America, it's also a pretty great/solid Hitchcockian thriller:

And to pile onto the Doyle-ness, CARLITO'S WAY from '93 - essential.
Very tight score, very breezy listen at 41mins., compliments the above
very well.
Looking forward to the DEAD AGAIN album, glad VOYAGE is back in print
if you missed it - its a challenging listen but an excellent score for a great film.

Honestly, I am not blown away by either of these titles. Were people really wanting a reissue of Fantastic Voyage?

As great as the FSM CD was, if LLL was able to improve the sound quality, I'm all for another FANTASTIC VOYAGE - it's one of my favorite scores.

You can get blown away at intrada:

Jeff Bond's note for Track 10 of the FSM Fantastic Voyage release: Proteus in Inner Ear

"A brief and uncharacteristically hopeful setting of the main theme is heard as the crew glimpses light from the outside world streaming in through Benes's eardrum."

Predicted new notes: Proteus in Inner Ear

"Rosenman cleverly, creatively, majestically, regally, and awe-inspiringly presents us with zero-minutes and forty-four seconds of sheer extrolitious introplitude, as he recalls his wondrously uplifting and tumultuous main theme in a new, different and entirely alternate setting.
It is the master-touch of a galvanized, triumphant genius of superbly virtuous and inceptive music-making, setting forth in the briefest span of passing seconds – all contained within the limitless and black void of the mysterious and infinite ages – a veritable goshtorium of invigorating incredulity.
For the intensely entrilistic and pontropulous Rosenman, this fleeting, momentary, devastatingly short and altogether brief glimpse of musical light is so much more than simply a shaft of illuminating illuminosity bathing the scene with a glowing beam of beautiful-yet-sublime illumination cast languidly upon a barely-seen but clearly perceivable cache of ear wax – it is the culmination of an inspired creative spark that began less than one minute earlier as the composer focused with laser-intensity on his sublime objectives and embarked upon his inevitable, unpredictable and purposeful musical quest par excellence."

Looks like Patrick Doyle is one of the composers of his seminal period that truly merits a retrospective/re-release cycle.

The big stars of the scoring biz (Williams, Goldsmith, Barry, Jarre) were pretty much transitioning out of their superstar modes, and this left room for new talent (Kamen, Doyle, Goldenthal, Zimmer) to get top-notch assignments.

Carlito's Way is a hell of a score.

Basil's notes made me giggle.

A quick glance at my FSM Fantastic Voyage reveals that it's signed by the late, great Leonard Rosenman. That's gonna be hard for the new release to beat.

All right! Dead Again was my first Doyle score, and remains a favorite. Even music cut from the movie? Terrific. smile

Love DEAD AGAIN. Movie and score. Very self-conscious movie, but a lot of fun, and with a few interesting surprises along the way.

Love Doyle's score. Have been on a Doyle kick ever since, acquiring any and all CD's he releases. With one exception, the remake of SLEUTH, which I discarded. But all the others continue to linger in the mind. Doyle will pretty routinely create some achingly lovely melodies. (Check out MRS. WINTERBOURNE.)

DEAD AGAIN and NEEDFUL THINGS always seemed to me like "sister scores," similar in range and content, dramatically and musically. (Thought the same thing of Newman's DIARY OF ANNE FRANK and THE COUNTERFEIT TRAITOR.)

So I'll definitely go for DEAD AGAIN.

People are never satisfied here

I am. Anything going forward is gravy. So this is terrific.

Pass on both of these.

May finally get around to purchasing Wyatt Earp and Matrix Reloaded though.

Jeez, every time I just casually decide to drop in to FSM board after a long absence, I find something worth reading!

Dead Again is an excellent candidate for an expanded release for Doyle (Donnie Brasco being another candidate), and it was impeccably conducted by Bill Kraft, the only conductor who ever really "got" Doyle during this period. IMHO. (That is to say... turned up to eleven and balls to the wall.)

Really looking forward to Dead Again with all that additional music! Not familiar with the other one, but thanks LLL for Dead Again!

Yes!!!! Dead Again is one of my favorite films and scores. I love the existing album, but it's only about 30 mins long. Can't wait to experience the additional music Doyle wrote!!!

Very happy about Fantastic Voyage! I hope the boutique labels reissue more titles that sold out years ago.

Never heard of Patrick Doyle.
