Thanks for posting the tracklist to make this release into the LP presentation. I haven't gotten to listen to my copy yet but if I feel like Thor on this issue, I have an easy way to re-organize the material.

Well, I finally got this -- about two weeks ago (haven't got around to posting until now). I see this thread has dropped like a rock, but hopefully that doesn't mean there's lack of interest. I've waited years for this release and it's more than I could have expected. Thanks FSM!

And Mona (actually Barney) is happy too!

I hope everyone realizes that Mr. Marshall posted a hypothetical LP program—this score never had an LP!

I'd just like to keep this thread near the top of the page, although I don't have time to post anything thoughtful. Must unscramble my brain and attempt to write something coherent. I'll just say for the moment that this is a SUPERB listen!

I can only say how great it is that Lukas has unearthed all these riches from the Paramount vaults. Hopefully with more to come! smile
Is Ragland's "Grizzly" a Paramount score? The movie opens with the Paramount Logo.

Shhhhh! Bruce is having one of his "insular" fantasies, Lukas.

I wonder how this title is selling? I absolutely treasure this one...Lukas-you knocked it out of the ballpark with this release.

I've never seen the film, but just ordered this gem yesterday based on the raves and the amazing sound clips. I love this period/style of music. Can't wait!!

Fantasy?
it was once, but now it is a glorious reality!
BTW the 'album" version is also the sequence i use to program the FSM disc.
It retains all the good stuff, while eliminating the filler(the 'trudging' music etc.)
It makes for a maximum listening 'sperience.

enjoY!

There's a riff which appears in "Martian Night" & "Lonely Nights" ( a back and forth arpeggio) which is from Ralph Vaughan Williams: Sinfonia Antartica (Symphony No. 7).

Wow, good catch, Charles. I'll have to check out that Williams symphony.

Still playing this wonderful score. Best one of the year for me. Thanks again, Lukas. smile

A nice enough conceit, this "LP album sequence stuff"...from the guy who dropped "The Blue Box" bomb!

Has anyone notice how particulary good this recording sounds? I played it in the car again this afternoon and I was getting jiggy with it.

Definitely one of the best releases of the year.

Yes, it's got great sound, hasn't it? The added bonus is that it's got great music too! I never get tired of this great release. There's more than a touch of Bernard Herrmann in there (the lumbering "Gort-like" passages, the low repeating figures, the "unfinished" final note on some tracks), but it really is a hugely varied and enjoyable score. I'd put it on a par with something like Russ Garcia's THE TIME MACHINE, not because they sound alike, but just because they are both so imaginative and captivating.

And the bagpipe bonus tracks are amongst the funniest things in my collection!

I have ordered my copy -together with "Dark of the Sun"- only two weeks ago and today I was informed it already arrived in Buenos Aires, so around next weekend I'll be enjoying these 2 fantastic gems. I'm veeeeery glad!!!

Thanks for the fixed version, which now graces my iPod!

Maybe the original cover depicts a marsquake

Best and most unexpected release of the year for me. smile
