Would you want to rerecord the Salter cues too? I think I could live without them if you could save some money not recording them.


You'd need the 'Death of Draco' sequence at least, since it's essentially integral to the dramatic flow.

There are other bits and pieces that are Salter's arrangements of Moross's themes. It would be nice to know which is which. For example, there's an exquisite little passage that finishes two battle scenes, (it's on the album CD, just at the tail-end of 'The War Lord in Battle': it's also at the end of the first fight with the Frisians early on), which just perfectly describes musically the whole 'joyous comradeship' thing that was part of chivalry, just a few bars. Not necessarily in keeping with the score's overall feel, it still has Moross's feel about it, though it's probably Salter.

The whole thing is a one-CD affair anyway.


I agree that if done then the Salter cues would certainly have to be included

Of course they'd have to be included -- even the original LP/Varese CD had Salter on it -- two tracks out of 11! The question is this: did Moross write music for the scenes Salter ended up (re?)scoring, or were those left without music originally and then they decided music was needed, Moross unavailable, and Salter came in? If Moross *did* write music for those sequences which ended up getting rejected, then I would prefer to hear the complete Moross score first, followed by the Salter cues. Otherwise, I'd prefer to hear the Salter mixed in the score chronologically (as it indeed was on the previous album).

I hope the "epic" is The War Lord by Jerome Moross (with some Hans J. Salter) -- it's time to add more composers to the Tadlow stable, and this is one of the greatest epic scores of the 60s!

Out of curiousity James do you have any other releases of original film recordings coming up or will that have to wait until you find tapes for Jesus of Nazareth?

Just the remix from original tapes of A PASSAGE TO INDIA ... liitle bit of extra stuff ... plus source cues



Mr. Fitzpatrick, is there a release date for A PASSAGE TO INDIA (spring-summer-autumn)?
Thanks for your great Maurice Jarre releases by the way. 'The Big Chase!' from MAD MAX is gorgeous (and a little bit mad..)!
Any chance for a new release of THE BRIDE?

The Bride wouldn't be a bad idea (even if there wasn't much to expand)...look at the Ebay/Amazon prices on that one!

No date as yet for PASSAGE ....rather busy at the moment mixing and editing TARAS and others...

I do have the multi tracks of THE BRIDE so will see if there isany extra stuff ....

Thanks for the answer!
Why not combine A PASSAGE TO INDIA with THE BRIDE... wink

2 different film companies ....2 different original record labels.

EMI, who own PASSAGE, will only allow their material on any re-issue ....

Listening to the Kritzerland Taras Bulba at the moment--really looking forward to the Tadlow complete score! When can we expect it? (Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere.)

My very first post here, by the way. cool

All I can say at the moment is that TARAS will be ready when it is finished.... a lot of the editing has been done already but I still have bits of choir to record ...plus I am very busy with my proper work of booking and supervising orchestral recordings for contemporary films and TV shows and albums. Luckily I am pretty solidly booked until mid-May on this ....so just have to do bits on the 2 recordings I did in January as and when time allows.

Sorry I can't be any clearer

Not a problem! Thanks for the response, and glad to hear you're so busy! smile

I'll be patient--I know it will be well worth the wait!

First Tribute and now Tadlow going vague on the projected release dates of their most recent projects. Must. Be. Patient. Oh, the anticipation...!

Sorry about that but as a one man company ... I am rather too successful with my proper job at the moment and it is taking me away from giving weeks of my time to that great lost-making, labour of love ....the label. But unfortunately who am I to turn down recording of news scores in favour of some old rubbish from 1962 and the late 60's .....

Any hints on what the late 60's recording will be...?

Late 60's......

Jarre?

The Professionals, the complete score, lovingly re-recorded by Tadlow.

Well I can dream, and maybe, one day, I'll be right.

Looking forward to the Taras Bulba recording. I'd love to see you redo Horner's Battle Beyond the Stars, as the original performance, somewhat akin to Conan the Barbarian, can easily be improved upon.

Can it? I thought both performance and sound quality were excellent, or if not excellent, certainly not bad enough to warrant a re-recording when other scores are standing in line.

And on that subject I nominate Sodom & Gomorrah. Now there's a score screaming for a re-recording. The original sound is just appalling and full of all sorts of technical glitches, like stereo tracks suddenly going to mono. To me this is as important a score as Quo Vadis and just as neglected, oddly so given that it's 12 years younger.

Wouldn't James encounter the same difficulties with the Rozsa estate? I'm hoping one day of a new recording of Thief of Baghdad but after the Quo Vadis situation I doubt it will ever take place.

Looking forward to Taras Bulba as I believe it is Waxman's crowning achievement. And of course wondering what else was recorded that is from the late 60's.

I would love a full rerecording (complete with the dance music) of that score, though, while some of the tracks on the OST seem very 'pinched' they are in fact still in stereo, as advertised.
