Knowing that this will invite response to correct any assumptions I'm making here, this is merely a wish list for the coming year, regardless of what the labels may have hinted at so far:

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - Michael Kamen
The Three Musketeers (20th Anniversary) - Michael Kamen
The Rocketeer - James Horner
Dick Tracy - Danny Elfman
Jurassic Park (20th Anniversary) - John Williams
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (25th Anniversary) - Alan Silvestri
Last Action Hero (20th Anniversary) - Michael Kamen
Twister - Mark Mancina


How about you guys?


What's with SoundtrekLITM 's eight blank postings?

Psycho II - complete (Universal: Intrada / Varese?)

Psycho III - complete (Universal: Intrada)
Fright Night Part II (BSX rerecording if original is lost... if possible including the songs Come To Me and Dressed In Red)
Jaws 2 - complete (Universal: Intrada / Varese?)

Airport 1975 - complete (Universal: Intrada)
Airport The Concorde (Universal: Intrada)

There's been some great & interesting releases, but nothing from the top of my little wants-list yet. Oh well, three months to go.

Goldsmith - The Flint albums. I know they're a'coming, but this year?

Williams - Dracula OST

Mancini - The Great Race OST

Harline - 23 Paces To Baker Street - doubtful, I think Bruce is my only hope, maybe part of a directors collection - Heny Hatherway (that would be a great set).

Lai - I'll Never Forget What's 'is Name, the album, Universal France?

Lethal Weapon - La-La Land I'm sure, but this year?

The three, Rozsa Conducts Rozsa albums, I think I've given up on that one.

My dream wish-list for the next few years:

ENNIO MORRICONE:
Two Mules For Sister Sara (complete/remastered)
My Name Is Nobody (complete -the previous expanded release is far from complete
and contains lots of alternate versions that didn't make it to the film).
A Genius (complete, this western score also contains lots of unreleased material)
For a few dollars more (complete)
L'Agnese va a morire (complete/remastered)
Una Vita Venduta (complete/remastered)

VARIOUS (mostly electronic or/and electronic/orchestral scores):
Looker - Barry De Vorzon
Stick - Barry De Vorzon & Joseph Conlan
Midnight Express - Giorgio Moroder (complete movie version)
Scarface - Giorgio Moroder (complete movie version)
Cobra - Sylvester Levay
Hell Night - Dan Wyman
Without Warning - Dan Wyman
Beverly Hill's Cop I & II - Harold Faltermeyer
Let's scare Jessica to Death - Walter Sear
Shock Waves - Richard Einhorn
Unhinged - Jonathan Newton
Endangered Species - Gary Wright
Android - Don Preston

Unfortunately I doubt we'll ever get to see many of these titles on CD.

EDIT: I'd also like to add David Shire's unused electronic/orchestral score to Apocalypse Now. According to synthesist Bernie Krause, Shire's score was beyond brilliant - one of the most inventive and lyrical pieces of cinema music he had ever heard up to that point. The synthesist's working on the original version of the score included Dan Wyman, Michael Boddicker and Bernie Krause (*). Krause was later rehired and worked, along with several other synthesists, on the version that ended up in the actual film.

(*) Wyman also did the synth-work on Midnight Express along with Harold Faltermeyer and
Boddicker did the synths on Looker.

My own include Michael Small's beautiful guitar-centered soundtrack for "Love And Pain And The Whole Damn Thing; the beautiful score for "Sheila Levine Is Dead And Living In New York;" and, as I've mentioned elsewhere, Bill Conti's thrilling score for the American release of Luc Besson's "The Big Blue" (they released the movie on DVD with Eric Serra's far less interesting original soundtrack). In the case of the Conti, I recorded about 20 minutes of his music off the VHS of the American release and transferred it to digital, so am at least able to hear it with extraneous noise, and I once did the same with Small's music for "Love And Pain," but that recording is on reel-to-reel, and who plays reel-to-reel anymore? Incidentally, I've seen here an import that is supposed to have about 18 1/2 minutes of the Conti "Big Blue," but can't seem to find it to buy. For simplicity, let me list the 3 just mentioned:

LOVE AND PAIN AND THE WHOLE DAMN THING
SHEILA LEVINE IS DEAD AND LIVING IN NEW YORK
THE BIG BLUE (Bill Conti's American re-do)

And to Peter Greenhill, Re: "Two For The Road -film tracks (Mancini)," is there a problem with the soundtrack CD? It's always seemed fine to me, as is the film on DVD.

Looking closer at this posting, I think that some may have confused holy grails with wish lists, because I've seen a lot included here that HAVE been released on CD (just one example: James Horner's "Willow," which I've had on CD for ages). Isn't a holy grail in this context something you want that HASN'T been released?

Psycho II (Disappointed nothing concrete has been mentioned here now the blurays are imminent - would have been the perfect time!)

Salem's Lot (1979 version!)

They want more music, apparently 80 minutes isn't enough.

To Cvalda re the above, I love your

Unreleased /and/ Expanded

And I wish others would divide them like that, Unreleased and Expanded; otherwise we see people listing soundtracks they want that we KNOW have already been released. Thank you!!!

And to Dana Wilcox, Elmer Bernstein's "To Kill A Mockingbird" is one of my favorites as well, and I have both the original soundtrack from the movie as well as the more expanded re-recording of it, plus the cues in Bernstein's own CD of his music.

Several years ago I made CDs of favorite scenes from movies, which I recorded off the DVDs, and I have some of the final scenes from "Mockingbird," especially where Scout tells Atticus that to tell the townspeople that Boo Radley saved their lives would be like killing a mockingbird, with that lovely narration at the end. Glad to have THAT on my iPod in a playlist of favorite scenes from movies. Another thing I did was record the closing credit music for both "Contact" and "Shakespeare In Love," both of which are longer and more interesting than what we were given on the soundtracks.

Per the above and Cvalda's posting, henceforth could we get people responding to this to post them in these two categories:

UNRELEASED ..... /and/ ..... EXPANDED


That will stop some of us from pointing out that there ARE available soundtracks when what you may be seeking are EXPANDED versions of them. What do you think, Maestro Sartori? (Who started this.)

UNRELEASED: The soundtrack for "Stevie" with music by Patrick Gowers and dialog from the movie by Glenda Jackson, Trevor Howard, and Mona Washbourne. I've long had a sentimental attachment to it and recorded the LP onto digital, but there are too many snaps crackles and pops, and discovered too late that an important cue has a noticeable skip on it. So I'm hoping it will one day be released on CD. And it comes up empty when I search for any mention of it here.

To Cvalda: Re your mention of Michael Small

Are you familiar with his guitar-centered score for "Love And Pain And The Whole Damn Thing" with Maggie Smith and Timothy Bottoms, set mainly in Spain? It's a beautiful soundtrack and I've longed for it since the movie was released in 1972. Back in the early 70s, before even VHS, I used to record the audio of favorite movies onto reel-to-reel tape from cable channels, including this one, and listen to it mainly for that lovely Michael Small music.

?

------------
Ron: The problem with the 'Two For The Road' CD is it is mainly source music and is missing significant amounts of really gorgeous score. A common problem with many Mancini 60s album releases.

Intrada were interested in doing an original tracks 'Two For The Road' but the tapes are missing so it looks like the original album is all we're going to get.
