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

Don't own a lot of John Carpenter albums, do you?

The cover of the original Silva release was, in my view, much funnier:

'Music by Alan Howarth in association with no one else'.

To OnlyGoodMusic & Kim Tong:



To BSX, thanks for another Alan Howarth expansion! Dig the samps.

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

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


Well, we confirmed the date with the director, Jim Wynorski.

1983.

Here they are:

THE LOST EMPIRE by Alan Howarth
http://buysoundtrax.stores.yahoo.net/loemorsobyal.html


MUSIC FROM THE FILMS OF RIDLEY SCOTT
http://buysoundtrax.stores.yahoo.net/mufrfiofrisc.html


Much tackier choices than were anticipated.

"performed by the American Film Symphony,"

So, a few acoustic instruments + synths?

Rather underwhelming, don't you think?


You of course entitled to your opinion.

However, I just wonder if you and the other person have even taken the time to listen to some of the tracks before commenting.

As far as I'm concerned I'll let this release speak for itself.

Both myself and Mark Banning are quite proud of it.

As for "The Lost Empire", It's a really fun score by him for the early 80's that I have always wanted to have BSX reissue, I'm happy we have been able to.

How come the Ridley Scott compilation does not feature any of Michael Kamen`s music from "Someone To Watch Over Me"? I am just curious.

After reading some posts on here about THE JERRY GOLDSMITH COLLECTION - VOLUME 1: RARITIES, I listened to some of the tracks and I said it might be worth a chance since I am a big Goldsmith fan. After listening to it the first time, I thought it might grow on me, no it did not. I will not be purchasing Volume 2, I could not even sell Volume 1 on eBay for half the price I paid, so I gave it to my nephew. I told him if he liked any of the scores, I will let him listen to the original scores. I read posts about your LEGEND and BLADE RUNNER re-recordings and after the Goldsmith Collection I will not be purchasing any more re-recording that are not orchestal. I have listened to other tracks and I am not interested, sorry.

I am happy too ! I always missed the music for the jewelery store shooting at the beginning of the film on the Silva release.
And I just read over at the BSX board that there will be even a Blu-Ray later this year.

Awesome .............

LOST EMPIRE kicks ass. I remember when I first heard the score in the 90's (courtesy of Mike Joffe), I was blown away by how nicely the score fit in with my John Carpenter collection. It's very much cut from the same cloth as Halloween III, Escape From New York, etc.

I'm stoked to finally have the film tracks. Thanks BSX!

Ridley Scott - great! I really wanted this on CD. Seems like I have to order it right away since it's a 1000 copy release only...

Oh, I see. And, yes, you're right, I only own Escape from L.A. smile

I like Howarth's synth score to THE LOST EMPIRE a lot and I can't wait to get my hands on this expanded
and remastered CD release. Some of the music is reminiscent of the additional synth music Howarth recorded for The Osterman Weekend.

Howarth recorded the Lost Empire score in August of '83.

Great release. Too bad the "Retribution" score on the Silva release
was/could not also be included on disc 2.

Mmmm I much prefer Retribution to The Lost Empire. Haven't listened to the Silva CD for ages. I seem to remember a VERY blatant Chariots Of Fire reference in there...

That would be in the "Chariots of Night Patrol" track...

The truth is that the score didn't leave much of an impression as other scores by Kamen, also as it stands this release was always going to run close to the edge in terms of running time, so some choices had to be made.

"Someone to Watch Over Me" based it's title on the song, so we had to include a version, thus cover that film.

Those samples were fantastic - vintage 80's Howarth without question. I can't wait to hear the rest!

Thanks BSX

That's very good news indeed!

In my opinion Howarth's "Retribution" score is just as good as Carpenter's "Big Trouble..", if not better.
