My favorite score of all time in a definitive presentation. Talk about Holy Grails.

Ordered. Twice.

This is a top notch release, no question about it. The sound quality on the samples is absolutely pristine! Well done Intrada!

Having said that, I haven't actually listened to the original OST in well over a year, having switched over to the Tadlow re-recording for listening to the score. I'm struck in listening to the clips how tinny and thin the original orchestra sounds, especially when compared to the rich sound of the orchestra on the Tadlow re-recording. I'm on the fence as to whether to pick this up as I think I much prefer the re-recording (other than the Wheel of Pain track which never quite sounded "right").

Don't get me wrong, others have been clamouring for this release and it looks absolutely great and certainly important from an archival standpoint, I'm just not sure it's for me. Happy for all of you that have been waiting months for this though.

Chris.


Oddly enough, I agree!

What is best in Life?

To order this CD.
Listen to the music loudly before me.
And hear the lamentations of my neighbors.

I've never seen Conan before, but for a long time I've heard about how great its score was.

Rather than listen to samples and trying to find a good track on YouTube, would anyone be willing to give me a good list of tracks that represents the score pretty well so I may take a listen and think about it?

I'm not sure when I'll get the chance to see the movie, but I want to hear what all the hubbub for this is about ;-)

This is as good as it gets. Back to the Future Complete and now Conan Complete. Might as well pack it in now. NOTHING tops this. Intrada has set the bar. What is left to be released on this level? Thank you Intrada, again.

I love the Tadlow re-recording of this score, but I bought this as well because I always like to have the original. I'll probably end up going back to the Tadlow recording for a better listening experience, but I wanted both. We need more Basil. Bring on the expanded Starship Troopers next!

Ordered! (along with The Red House) Pleasantly surprised at the asking price of $30, I expected it to be more.

This is something I've been waiting for for years. This is the release we've ALL been waiting for. If it weren't for La-La-Land's Trek box I'd be getting this right now, but funds are tight. Thankfully it's MAF!

And thank you Intrada for going the extra mile to make sure the Conan scores are preserved. These original recordings should never be out of print. Thanks to you, they won't be for quite some time. 2012 has been the best year for us film music weirdos!

I'll probably still buy it and give it a listen, but judging off these clips, I really think the Tadlow is stronger than some people gave it credit for.

I too was afraid Intrada would took advantage of the demand and raise the price over $30 (someone even wondered if it would be $40), which they didn't, so kudos to them.
Both covers are also great.
I can't wait to get my hands to this gem, at last!

I was going to avoid listening to the samples since I can't afford it... then I did. Wow. Even on my crappy computer speakers this sounds way less saturated than the previous versions. And that original version of "Orphans of Doom" is sublime. I don't know how Milius ever chose any version Poledouris wrote of any cue over another. He was always on.

This is going to be a hell of a listen when I can finally get it.

Milestone release.

Conan and Star Trek:TMP in one year... also Die Harder and Die Hard with a Vengeance... Hook... The Blade Runner re-recording... some real cornerstones on my list.

Amazing release. A couple of years ago we were being told that this could not be possible as the masters were long lost and yet here we are today.

This is my favourite soundtrack ever and Intrada looks to have done this score proud with this release.

It's going to be a long 3 weeks waiting for this to arrive (maybe later due to Christmas post), but once it arrives it is going to be played LOUD. Can't wait.

Many, many thanks Intrada for this wonderful release and to echo others - it's been a fantastic year for soundtrack releases.
