As I post at intrada's forum, I just finished with opening track from Red October (thanks to YouTube!).
I never laugh so much big grin
Lyrics are real nightmare - especially in the way, how it was transcribed.
hmoora = gloomily, and it would be more correct to pronounce hmoorO (by the way, it's the most common mistake in whole lyrics)
Do svidonia, byehreg rodnoy - we don't say so! Most correct variant will be Do svidonia, rodnoy byehreg.
But most rude mistake is here: nass val nahmarskaya zhdyot nyehdazh dyotsyah.
Correct variant will be: nass valnah marskaya zhdyot nyehdazhdyotsyah. So 1 word was transcript as two, two as one etc. And that's made this hymn little difficult to me - I still don't understand what Eemruchnoh v'doosheh means!
But music is great, so one day this will be first Basil score in my collection!


lol Ivan.. I played this to some of my Russian speaking friends when I was in Kazakhstan. And they still couldnt understand this properly.!

I was also waiting years for a re-release of Cocoon.

I dont think, there will be SO much more music on this new cd (if it is expanded at all), but the sound of the old LP/CD release wasnt very good and I`ll hope THIS will be improved a lot.

Defenetly on of the best double releases by Intrada for month!!!

Funny. I reviewed the "Cocoon" soundtrack CD for DIGITAL AUDIO magazine in the late 1980s, and I remember having a couple of interesting conversations with Armin Steiner around 1987 about his editing of it.

To Krakatoa re: "Great to have this back again...hopefully with some of those great big band numbers!" That's my fear, that most of the "extras" will be things like the Big Band numbers at the dance club! But I always hated Michael Sembello's noisy and intrusive "Gravity," which just destroyed the mood created by the other 11 cues, and used to wish they had just added that noisy song at the end of the CD rather than smack dab in the middle of it. I think that most of us here want more of James Horner's music -- we can easily download Big Band tunes to our heart's content! But give us MORE of Horner's music for "Cocoon"!!!

I hope there is more big band stuff inter mixed with the score as it played fine for me.

Re: I hope there is more big band stuff inter mixed with the score as it played fine for me.

drivingmissdaisy: You gotta be kidding! You can buy an unlimited amount of Big Band music -- on discount CDs or at the iTunes Store or Amazon's MP3 store. I have tons of Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Kay Kyser, Harry James, Lew Stone, Sammy Kay, Paul Weston, Jimmy Dorsey and Benny Goodman, among others, and the LAST thing I need is for them to use up space that could go towards expanding Horner's contributions with stuff we can find easily. And even if YOU don't have any of it, it wouold be sooooooooooo easy for you to find enough to your heart's content! So surely you jest! (I do NOT think that soundtrack lovers here want to re-buy "Cocoon" just to get some vintage Big Band tunes!)

There's some real nice orchestral music missing from the original COCOON CD - about 15 minutes, which includes a great flourishing piece introducing the Steve Guttenberg character and all the build-up to the old folks break-out, which is classic 80's Horner - so I wouldn't worry about it being just big band stuff.
The missing music is VERY GOOD and will make for a fine listen. Trust me.

COCOON is very cool (cocoon-cool?). It's a nostalgic film from my childhood, and it's always been one of those scores I've been meaning to get on CD. Unfortunately, both the Polydor and PEG releases were too expensive for me at the time. Maybe now is the time to take a plunge (and then I can just rearrange the Intrada into the old Polydor program).

As for RED OCTOBER, I've obviously had the ol' MCA album for many years. To be perfectly honest, there isn't that much exciting music beyond the glorious Russian anthem. Loads of synthy percussion and suspense music. However, I'm fairly open on this. If there is some great music that is in a more "fullbodied" or melodic style, it could benefit the listening experience. And if that is the case, a few more minutes wouldn't hurt either.

If I'm not totally über-ecstatic in my reply, like many others in this thread are, it's because I rarely am (unless it's unreleased Williams, Elfman and Goldenthal). But don't get me wrong -- I think both of these are great!

Seen the movies but I need to hear the samples for both scores as I'm not that familiar with them, but definitely big titles!

I guess I'm kinda happy about these coming out, but I can safely say that I've never cried over the release of a CD ever.

I cried when they released the 1976 classic HEY KID YOUR DOG DIED HAHAHA (the one with Don Knotts, not the remake), but that's because my dog had just died and I was in a really low place.

Fantastic releases, in particular for the folks of my generation who were teenagers / young adults when these came out in the mid 80's and early 90's. This brings back lots of memories smile

And with Horner still fresh in my mind after the amazing Vienna concert, the timing for Cocoon couldn't be any better!
