I love recording Rozsa...so what's next? Complete Jungle Book or Thief of Bagdad...or what?


Quite honestly James, I think we have a fair amount of music from Jungle Book and Thief of Bagdad already. How about The Golden Voyage of Sinbad - which was never recorded properly? A Harryhausen fantasy score would probably appeal to more than just Rozsa fans as well.

A complete JUNGLE BOOK in good sound is desperately needed!

As I thought...even the Rozsa fans cannot agree? So I will just have to record the music I like best......which is ?

KOK is avaible and sounds great... and JUNGLE GOOD is in need of a good integral recording, despite the great Rozsa's conducted suite already avaible from Varese...

Does it have to be a Rozsa score at all? I myself would greatly appreciate either Maurice Jarre's Doctor Zhivago OR Dimitri Tiomkin's Land of the Pharaohs.

A Double Life?

It'd be a hard one to call, given that Tadlow and Prometheus deal in LIMITED EDITION CDs, otherwise I'd recommend something very commercial, such as 'Ben-Hur', since there is no DDD recording of that. For the bigger world market out there, that sort of thing is a sure-fire hit and sells. The people here would shout 'No!' but in a bigger market that's the strategy.

But since these are for a fairly consistent and 'faithful' market of die-hards, in 3,000 unit pressings, then we could be more obscure.

There's no full release of 'A Double Life', one of Rozsa's most varied scores, and his second Oscar-winner. Yes, it's an internally less 'consistent' score than many in his film noir era material, but it's a great score, and will satisfy both the film noir buffs and the 'historical' and 'psychological' since it melds the three fairly seamlessly.

'Lady Hamilton' is a classic movie, though I doubt it'd fill a full CD, and it does have a few dated passages like the 'Hearts of Oak' thing.

'Lydia' is one of his most ubiquitous scores in compilation sets, and it's never had a full release, but it is an obscure film. Then again, Rozsa fans are dedicated.

And y'know, Rozsa's first ever score, 'A Knight Without Armour' is one of his best, shows everything he'd develop into.

And there was much speculation re 'Five Graves to Cairo' a while back.

'The Thief of Baghdad' is a surefire winner, and it'd need a massive orchestral/choral resource such as Tad can muster. But it wouldn't be cheap .... It's a famous classic of world cinema too, and might take a bigger run from someone like Silva later on, as 'El Cid' did ....

I'm sure these Tadlow and Prometheus recordings are not limited to 3,000 unit pressings William - why would they be.

Not Limited anymore ... but very, very few rarely sell more than 3000.....infact only 1 has for Prometheus and only 2 for Tadlow...so far

Steiner's magnificent HELEN OF TROY deserves a re-recording, especially as JF himself didn't like the previous suite released on Silva. And the Bernstein version wasn't good enough either.

Yes, but HELEN exists at Warners and complete.

How about things we can not get any other way.

I agree, along with "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad","Sodom & Gomorrah" desperately needs re-recording.

Have absolutely no proof but I believe that Duel in the Sun is on your radar for the next Prometheus recording. I do hope you go with your favs for Tadlow regarding Rozsa as either Jungle Book or my favorite Thief of Baghdad would make fine recordings.
