Is there any other way to pay in Tadlow's web instead of PayPal?

Why don't you order through SAE?


Ordering through Tadlow is more convenient if you live in the UK - the postage will work out cheaper and it'll arrive faster because it's inland post.

Cheers

Boo. Yah.

That's all there is to say razz

Seriously, haven't even listened to the samples, and I already know how awesome this is. Now if only the Destroyer OST wasn't $30 used on Amazon (hint hint labels)...

I see there's no numbers, so I'm guessing this is in fact not limited (as well it shouldn't be). I'd hate for something like THIS to sell out before everyone who wants one can get it...

A W E S O M E ! ! !

There was a former Silva Screen Conan suite that opened with the prologue, and it included the searching version of Conan's theme (which would re-appear in Conan the Destroyer as "The Katta") before "Anvil of Crom." It would appear that the cue heard when Conan is practicing was the original version of the film's opening before it was decided to go with the familiar Seven Samurai homage.

W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L

Looking forward listening to the COMPLETE score.
The clips sound fantastic.

While listening to the clips I thought that this re-recording will make me re-discover the music. It'll definitely sound different from the original and this will be great.

Orderes without a doubt!

Ordered along with Tadlow's British Film Music CD. Still need Larry of Arabia, True Grit and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome to complete my Tadlow collection.

I can't believe my eyes. This has been a year of tremendous releases. This and the Ron Jones Project make 2010 one of the greatest score years for me ever. Words cannot express how I feel about this. Those who are slamming on the rerecording obviously don't know the original that well. The timing is spot-on as are the orchestrations. They just sound more nuanced and better-played.

Many thanks to all who contributed to this release! Another Holy Grail, up there with Alien and Predator, which has finally come to reality.

We are far too spoiled these days. But I'm not complaining!

I'll stick with the original. It was great and the re-recording just doesn't cut it.
The samples are nice, some better than others but no the original is just that the original.
Maybe one of these days I'll order the re-recording for the additional material, but for now I'm going back to my original version, and continue to enjoy it so much its almost illegal.

D.S.

I'm buying it, that's for sure. The samples sound different than the original to me but I think that this time I'll wait for the CD to give my opinion.

By the way, that may sound stupid but I can't figure out what's in the cover, I see some kind of sword with a brown thing attached to it ( a snake? )

I'm going to guess it's an arm.

I'm very happy about this amazing Conan and already ordered it!

For a while I got turned off to rerecordings because I bought a couple of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra recordings from Varese several years ago, which for me just didn't do it. And it seemed that re-recordings were becoming a big new trend for Varese. Several releases in a row that I would have loved to have came out as re-recordings. Back to the Future was probably the pinnacle of this disappointment for me, because being the holy grail for so many people, releasing a rerecording sampler seemed a bit of a slap in the face, and certainly didn't sound like the original tracks. This all just put in me a bad taste for re-recordings, and only recently have I begun trying them out again. A reimagination like Neil Norman on the other hand is absolutely his own thing, never intended to be a rerecording at all. An interesting, fun bit of listening.

I'm absolutely ok with alternate interpretations, and new recordings in general, just as long as it doesn't come at the expense of the original material being made available. This is clearly not the case here, and I'm very excited to hear Conan in its glorious new presentation. I also hope the Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein rerecording sees the light of day eventually as well!

I just watched that video clip in the opening post.

I almost want to cry. Riders of Doom IS, IMO, in the Top 5 best film music pieces ever written. I listen to this track nearly every day. To see and hear the new performance is truly amazing and it takes my breath away. I can't wait to hear it on CD with the choir mixed in.

Basil's writing on this score was so powerful - almost as if the Gods gave him their beauty and grace.

Luc Van de Ven, James Fitzpatrick, Nic Raine, all of you in the Prague Philharmonic, Zoe and Alexis... you've made this film score fan in Canada REAL proud, overjoyed, and overwhelmed with emotion. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. THIS is THE overdue, more than deserved tribute to one of the greatest composers to ever live, and it pulls at my heartstrings to see the amount of dedication, work and labor of love that went into this project. No doubt that everyone else who loves this music will be touched as well. This is THE monumental and most important release in film music history.

Basil would have been proud.

Heh heh Well at least he's excited! (You haven't even gotten the CD yet...) I'm glad you're keeping this in perspective! wink

It didn't occur to me that my only post in here was a question of whether or not it included a certain piece of music.

Just to be absolutely clear... I went from "oh cool, they announced it" to "oh COOL, I just got my SAE INVOICE!" in about 60 seconds. big grin

My jaw hit the desk when I opened my email from SAE and saw a new complete 2-CD set of ‘Conan the Barbarian’ being advertised. I was almost in shock. It took me a full minute to realize what I was looking at and click the link. My enthusiasm was momentarily lost when I saw it was a re-recording. Then I saw Nic Raine’s name attached and I knew it had to be good. I then clicked on the embedded video of the orchestra. Marvelous! Next I feverishly clicked each of the all to brief samples. Incredible! I have the expanded Varese album but this..this is something special. I must order this.

Some other re-recordings I think are as good or better than the originals:

Jason and the Argonaughts (conducted by Bruce Broughton)
The Last of the Mohicans (conducted by Joel McNeely)
Raise the Titanic (conducted by Nic Raine)
King Kong (conducted by William J. Stromberg)
7th Voyage of Sinbad (conducted by Joel McNeely)
Vertigo (conducted by McNeely)
Obsession (conducted by Herrmann)

This is re-recording is really great news! I ordered this this morning (along with 'Lost: The Final Episodes' (Giacchino) and 'Jackboots on Whitehall' (Michelmore) and I can't wait to get this. I would have been perfectly happy if Tadlow's only re-recordings were 'The Alamo' and 'Lawrence of Arabia' (which turned into one of my top 5 scores after the new re-recording) but now we get a third one! Many thanks to the gang at Tadlow for putting this one out.

I must say that I have a hard time understanding why some people are not open to hearing re-recordings of scores. Even though I can somewhat understand the argument that a re-recording is not going to sound exactly as the composer intends, I always like hearing different interpretations of my favorite music. As a big fan of classical music, I always go out and seek different recordings of pieces (there are some pieces that I have six + recordings of) because it helps keep the music 'fresh.' One could say what is the point of doing a re-recording if it HAS to sound EXACTLY the same as the original? Great music is supposed to be performed and interpreted in different ways and I only wish that there were more re-recordings of film music out there.

The Varese one? I agree, that is my perfered listening experience but I do like some of the "quieter" cues on the original disc a little more. Can't tell you why though - theres just something there...
