And once again - no word about price.
I know it maybe will not work well, but if we get price for 4-CD box-set, we can predict approximate price for 11-CD set (probably just multiply it on 3-5)


And back to the music - seems that with this 11-CD set fans of 8th & 9th Doctor will be most happiest men now, 'cause all music for 8th screen adventure will be on 1 disc and same - with 9th! And this means no problems to Silva - which music must be on this or that CD. And just imagine, how many problems they have with 4th Doctor - so many adventures, so many music... It's really hard to select "The Best of...". 'cause where always will be people who can say "and why you release this uninteresting music from episode X and don't release fantastic score from episode Y?!". I think that Silva have hard times now smile

I also seem to remember current 'keeper' of the complete BBC Radiophonic Workshop output, 80s incidental music composer Mark Ayers once saying that only two soundtracks from Dudley Simpson exist, so goodness knows which ones they are, from the Jon Pertwee or Tom Baker era. Some of the Pertwee ones were done with electronics with Simpson using the RW facilities, while the rest are double tracked recordings by small ensembles.

Does that mean that a lot of the Simpson material on this four disc set will probably be re-recordings? (Almost all the Tom Baker stories from Robot to The Horns of Nimoy were scored by Simpson.)

Well, looking at the track listing at Silva's site there's a fair few sound effects tracks. Not my cup of tea I'm afraid. But Simpson is definitely there. There's music from the Troughton story Fury From the Deep and Seeds of Death. The latter has “Ice Warrior Music” and from the serial's episode titles, the latter I know quite well. Nice eerie female wailing!

Then Jon Pertwee era has Mind of Evil (Simpson at the Radiophonic Workshop!) with it's classic Master's Theme, and Frontier in Space.

From the Tom Baker period we get The Android Invasion and Invasion of Time. Hope the latter includes the church organ style music for the crowning of the Doctor with the Matrix, and the low register stuff for the Sontarans.And that's yer lot from dear old Dudley! Such a shame that most of his stuff is lost.

With such a small amount I suspect it's all soundtrack. One day we might see a good rerecording of Simpson's best work. One of them, City of Death, was performed at the recent Prom of course. A few years ago Silva released a cd of early Tom Baker stuff of Dudley's but it was done with electronics, and was most unsatisfactory despite the great effort. My first choices for electronic re-recordings would be the stuff HE did with electronics! Apart from his Pertwees there's more church organ music for The Deadly Assassin, Invasion of Time and The Ribos Operation. Any good musician could recreate those with synths.

The other pre-Radiophonics stuff is, as I suspected, from Geoffrey Burgon and Carey Blyton. I'm happy about the latter especially Death to the Daleks, which has some great atmospheric music and a natty little theme for the Daleks. His Revenge of the Cybermen is on there too from the Tom Bakers.

Quite right. I should know. I produced it. Ah well, that was then, this is now. Electronics and sample libraries have come a long long way since. BTW, it wasn't a few years ago, but twenty. Oh my god!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to these collections. The 11 disc-er seems particularly comprehensive.

Here's an earlier thread about the music in Doctor Who.

I think that Silva once again will release this 2 specials at one release (like Snowman & Doctor, Widow etc.) - but put them on 2 CD-set: CD 1 - for Anniversary episode, CD 2 - for 11th final Christmas story...

There was a cracking good, almost John Williamsesque brass fanfare in the Paul McGann minisode, was that tracked from somewhere else of specially composed for it? I'd love to have that.

Looking forward to the score for The Day Of The Doctor. Hoping for some good new renditions of The Doctor Forever!

I wonder if the TARDIS is being constructed by the same company that constructed the Elfman/Burton box?

That fanfare comes from the episode Day of the Moon and and can be found from CD track Apollo 11. Most, if not all of this minisode is tracked from Series 6. Has Gold ever composed original music for minisodes or prequels? I doubt it.

I´m waiting The Day of the Doctor also, and Gold revisiting his former glories, especially the Gallifrey theme and the Tenth Doctor´s theme.

Wow. So, are you the Heathcliffe Blair credited with that cd?

Heath, I LOVE that Silva Screen CD you did (gulp) 20 years ago. With so little of Dudley Simpson's Baker era music surviving it has been a treat to take out and listen to from time to time (just listened to it again yesterday by coincidence). Took me 20 years to thank you, but better late than never. big grin

I got to listen to an updated version you did from Brain of Morbius (if I remember right) - sounded even closer to the original than your first version. I think you had in on your website at one point. Great stuff! Any chance that a few of your tracks made it onto the 11 CD set?

Verity!

PS Would snatch up an updated version of that CD if ever you get the inclination.

    So in the last 2 weeks I went to Collectormania in Milton Keynes and the DW 50 Celebration in London and I heard the full version of the new theme arrangement played over speakers at both. So a recording exists somewhere...

    Yes, I too have that cd, and it did get quite a lot of play back in the day.

    I wonder, if you ever considered recording Dudley's music that didn't have orchestral instruments? My theory being that both his Radiophonic work for the Pertwees and the organ music he used for Time Lord based stories most notably Deadly Assassin, would suit your own electronic facilities more perhaps than stuff that was originally done by the string quartets etc?

    Obviously I realise that the purpose of the released disc was to showcase the Tom Baker/Philip Hinchcliffe period, but then Deadly Assassin falls into that category. My own wishlist would have been The Three Doctors, Deadly Assassin, Invasion of Time and The Ribos Operation. The Pertwee one there is for me the best of the scores Dudley did for the Pertwee period, and all the others have that church organ sound so well duplicated in your selection from Pyramids of Mars.
