Congratulations with another great project!!
Curious. sometimes we think that when older elements are fixed up for CD release, it could mean the ultimate goal is a new video (Blu-Ray) release. Could be??
Just ordered mine!

I will definitely be ordering this. I remember seeing the film at the time of its release. The score release is a dream come true.

This totally unexpected announcement actually brought tears to my eyes -- I am such a wuss....

But WWBG is one of those scores I thought was lost forever. Wow. Thank you. Wow again.

Isn't this like 3 releases in about 2 weeks (White Dog, Cincinnati Kid, then this)?

WOW.

Is it possible that the music tracks for the other 5 Cinerama films, the documentaries, and
Windjammer, are languishing in some vault wait for the light of day?
They all have superb backgrounds scores, and the multi-channel stereo sound was one of the
hallmarks of the Cinerama process.

I and five of my friends have ordered this masterpiece, and having HONEYMOON MACHINE in addition is icing on the cake. I always figured that the masters to all of the Cinerama films have been preserved for some time. HOW THE WEST WAS WON and SOUTH SEAS ADVENTURE, having both come out on CD, was a clue to this. I too am waiting for the full score to Morton Gould's impeccable WINDJAMMER score with wide-open digital sound in Stereo. That one will definitely be a sell-out once people hear it.

We live in Scoreland - the land of never-ending miracles!!! Deal with it.

Yes, Lukas is into fairy tale wish fulfillment. Great news.

Gee, I always wanted that big yellow box set when I was a tadpole, never managed to get one. Now I'll have all of the music and much more. (Too bad FSM didn't reproduce the book and make a big yellow box set out of it!) The Leigh Harline releases from Intrada and FSM are greatly appreciated. So far I've bought them all, and my order's already in for this one. Many thanks to Lukas and FSM for this wonderful, and really unexpected, treasure!

So did Harline write any original themes for this score? Because from the FSM description it sounds like he didn't.

Please bring back the complete track samples. It makes it easier for the customer to decide!
Really, the main theme to this sounds fantastic but I'm afraid I don't have the time (or the patience) to click 74 times to hear samples lasting less than a minute.



Personally, I use the Firefox plugin DownloadThemAll!. Works perfectly. And IMO having some of every track helps much more than only having some of the tracks, even if they are complete. In this case it certainly helped in my decision.

I, too, always wanted that yellow box - to match the gold, light blue and dark blue ones that were already on my shelves (BEN-HUR, KING OF KINGS and MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY), but when I finally got it many years later (cheaply, in a cut-out bin), I was very disappointed. It's a children's album with narration and the music - such as it is - is a re-arrangement with virtually nothing of Harline's contribution to the score. When Lukas told me the master tapes were lost I was almost relieved! But at least he did include the notes from that album, as well as the blurb on the music from the hard-cover souvenir book (http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/notes/brothers_grimm_LP.html) for all us nostalgia buffs. And Joe's designs in the booklet incorporate some of the souvenir book's graphics (the cute little "subject headings")!

The complete masters have been at the studio since the film was made -- however, they were on the unique Cinerama format which is a little more complicated than, say, just finding a Phillips screwdriver. Fortunately in recent years the complete Cinerama masters were transferred by Chace in Burbank and Neil Bulk has done the extensive assembly work to prep the six- and seven-track masters digitally for release. Seriously, the stuff went on forever.

Lukas


Did the Rhino 2-CD release of HOW THE WEST WAS WON (the film was released in CINERAMA about the same time of BROTHERS GRIMM) go through the same extensive digital assembly prep work as BROTHERS GRIMM?

Does that mean that the tapes for the "children's album" are lost or that Lukas just decided it wasn't worthy of release along with these marvelous music tracks? The tapes for the original album seem to have been around as recently as 1986 when MCA re-released that album on LP and cassette.

Start a lot of projects and release them as they are completed. That's why we sometimes get 8 discs in 2 weeks . . . or zero discs in 8 weeks, such as in August and September of last year.
