Dark Crystal? Highlander?

Highlander came out in 1986, not early-80s.

The Beastmaster would be great, although as others have said I don't think there's enough for two discs.

Perhaps I'm misreading, but it seems to me that its a reissue of an expanded 2 cd set. Not newly expanded.

It's probably Krull. It SHOULD be Krull. Darned score deserves to be in print for eternity!

One will be EXPANDED 2 CD SET reissue of a wonderful early 80's fantasy adventure score by one our favorite composers.

The way expanded is in all caps, it sounds to me like they are reissuing something and expanding it at the same time. Otherwise, they might have just said something like "one will be a reissue of a 2 CD expanded set."

Here's some other early 80's fantasy adventure titles, don't know if any match the clue, though...

Ator: The Fighting Eagle
Flash Gordon
Excalibur
Conquest
The Neverending Story

Well I highly doubt Klaus Doldinger or Giorgio Moroder is one of BSX's favorite composers...
So The Neverending Story is out, alas.

Much tackier choices than were anticipated.

"performed by the American Film Symphony,"

So, a few acoustic instruments + synths?

Rather underwhelming, don't you think?

Actually it's from 1983 so yes, it IS early 80s.

What a charming comment! Not my cup of tea but I don't feel the need to piss on anybody else's chips!

So, laudatory comments are welcome, but critical ones aren't? That's a mighty fine understanding of free speech. Or are you working for BSX?

This is not about laudatory or critical.

If you´re underwhelmed, why do you have to state this opinion in a thread that has been opened for those who like the releases?

Its as if someone is happy and you cry out publicly that you´re not happy about this guy´s happiness.

Mean-spirited and pointless, IMO.

And please, don´t wave the "free speech"-banner. Free Speech is not about everyone always having to say everything they want to everyone. It´s about your freedom to be able to say what you want.

If you choose your freedom to badmouth something that actually does not concern you at all - well, that´s saying more about you.

Really ? Then IMDB, OFDB, Soundtrackcollector.com have it all wrong.

Exactly. wink But be on guard - you'll be attacked from "certain quarters" very soon ... wink

If you´re underwhelmed, why do you have to state this opinion in a thread that has been opened for those who like the releases?


Scuse me? The thread was a guessing-game one, and the number of high profile potential(!) releases would have suggested something more artistically satisfying and ambitious than a low-grade 1980s synth score and a collection of themes in re-arrangements for the customary BSX "ensemble".

Hey, always see the bright side of life: now BSX knows how much we crazy people want a reissue of Holdridge's THE BEASTMASTER!

Watch what you hope for, it will probably be a CD of re-arrangements performed by the "customary BSX ensemble."

I don't get the joke of "Alan Howarth, in association with Alan Howarth"

Alan Howarth wrote most of the score, but scheduling difficulties led him to turn to frequent collaborator Alan Howarth to write some additional cues and beef up the orchestration.
