There are many great suggestions and so much great music deserving a good presentation.

I would sugget Star Wars episode 1 the phantom menace
followed by episode 2 and 3.

With all the Star Wars hype i think it would sell well. And would love a complete and new performance.

You're of course welcome to your choices, but why would any company wish to re-record the Star Wars scores? They're available in definitive versions; no one is going to interpret or play or record them any better. As for Star Wars hype, I think some of us are a bit Star Warsed out by now. If there's interest in the franchise, it's in the possibility of a new film and score, not the much-maligned '99 version.

Hi,

to anwser your question why; they are not available in a definitive version. Lots of Phantom menace changes in the orchestration, not little ones. The 2 cd is not complete and hacked to bits.
episode 2 and 3 are only 1 cd presentations of 2 hour scores.
Despite what a lot of older fans think, the kids growing up with the prequels love them. I teach children and am still surprised that year after year new kids know Star Wars and love the prequels and the clone wars just as much as my generation loved the OT.
the prequel kids are now in there twenty's and many love the music.
I can't tell you how much kids loved the clone wars and are active Star Wars fans. The franchise is definitly two fold. OT and PT fans with a smaller middle ground loving both.
Apart from the movies its just great music, i find the Prequels wonderfull in a different way then the OT. Love them just as much.
And off course we have the Charles Gerhardt versions of the OT. Briljant. diffirent interpretations and even Williams likes them smile I think great music needs to be performed and rerecorded. As with the Conan scores i believe they'll hit a home run in performance and sales.
Williams fans like me will buy it. Star Wars fans will buy it. There is even a podcast about the Williams star wars scores these days. Its very much alive. A new recording could be brought under the attention of Star Wars fans who generaly buy Star Wars music and no other filmmusic on jedi.net and rebelforceradio reaching a new audience.

And if complete scores are out of the question a Gerhardt like program on one CD of each movie would make me very happy.

I hope that answers your questions.

Greetings Thommy.

GODZILLA (1954)

There is new recording of "Godzilla" smile It was recorded in 2016, Kaoru Wada conducted Japan Century Symphony Orchestra.

It is great recording, very faithful to original in terms of recording/performance.

Patton


For such a Goldsmith fan I'm surprised that you want Patton re-recorded. What is wrong with the 1997 re-recording by the RSNO under the baton of Goldsmith?

Dave, that was actually a "geez, sure wish Intrada would restock Patton" bit of frustration. I have yet to own ANY version of Patton, and the Intrada is apparently head and shoulders above the rest. Even a rerecording would be preferable than having to grab the apparently incomplete Flight of the Phoenix split.

So folks, I apologize for that selfish vote. Just would love to finally get Patton at a price where I won't have to sell my first born.

Patton IS complete on the FSM twofer with Flight of the Phoenix; it's the latter score by Frank DeVol which isn't complete (but still a very generous program). You make it sound like owning this version would be terrible and I can assure you that's not the case at all.

The Intrada does sound a bit better because it was released so much later, and it does add the unique album recording, which had to be licensed from UMG and included on a separate disc.

I feel dumb I hadn't asked you about the FOTP split. In that case, it sounds like I CAN get the complete version. Time for investigations, thank you!

I mean, the Intrada isn't out of print, just out of stock. So since it's even more definitive with the CD premiere of the unique album recording, why not just be a little bit patient? smile There's plenty other available Jerry to get.

Sorry I don't follow. The Goldsmith re-recording is nearly complete (Around a minute of music is missing) and it is easy to pick up so why the need to improve on a re-recording by a world class orchestra under the baton of Goldsmith himself?
