Bruce, is there a possibility for a restoration of THE FURIES or are the elements missing at this point?

My humble suggestion - 45 minutes is enough! "A Place in the Sun" needs no company on the silver disc - it's an Oscar winning score and a MAJOR discovery! Put it out alone, Bruce!

i'll humbly second that

A PLACE IN THE SUN as a stand alone is just fine. It will be the iconic Paramount score of the year. Last year we had SHANE and we probably won't get THE TEN COMMANDMENTS until next year.

There's 6 months left to 2013. Is it already known that TTC won't be out until 2014? What make you believe that TTC won't be released this year? I'm assuming Intrada will release TTC in the fall 2013.

I'll know more about this and a few others in a few months. Hopefully patience will be rewarded.

Just a feeling. I would love to be proven wrong. Time will tell.

the news is good for A Place in the Sun - beyond my wildest expectations - we really thought this was completely hopeless a year ago. Now, thanks to the wizardry of Chris Malone the impossible has become possible - we have about forty-five minutes of it and it's amazing.

Amazing! A fantastic score I've longed for since I saw the film on television in, I'd guess, 1985. I'd contented myself with the various suites available, but this breakthrough you speak of is very exciting.

Is it simply new technology that has allowed this score to be resurrected? (I say "simply" like there's anything simple about it.)


I don't know WHAT the technology is anymore - who can keep up with such things? I can only tell you Paramount had the forty-five minutes of clean music, but the majority of it was in such bad shape I thought it was hopeless. After hearing Chris's recent work on several of our projects, where I thought things were equally hopeless, I sent him the music and asked him to do a test version of one of the really bad-sounding tracks - when I heard the amazing result, I said "full speed ahead."

Glad there are still some die hards left who truly appreciate the greats, of which Waxman was one of the greatest.

I can also mention that even though nothing is positive yet, I heard one test track of A Place in the Sun - very problematic source material, but what I heard was definitely acceptable and it was the worst of the tracks - so if everything can sound like that or better, the news just might be good.



Please keep us posted Bruce on A Place in the Sun. Hope it will make it to a cd.

This new Waxman looks fantastic, and what a great cover! Ordered! smile

Bruce, any chance you can do: Victor Young at Paramount ? Please think about it.


I promised to keep you posted so I shall - the news is good for A Place in the Sun - beyond my wildest expectations - we really thought this was completely hopeless a year ago. Now, thanks to the wizardry of Chris Malone the impossible has become possible - we have about forty-five minutes of it and it's amazing. We're going to decide what to do over the next few weeks - whether we want to find something to go with it, or whether forty-five minutes is enough for this classic film and score. That way we can save the other Waxman stuff that may be possible for a volume two of Waxman at Paramount. We shall see - but I'm listening to A Place in the Sun right now and it's just something to hear!



My humble suggestion - 45 minutes is enough! "A Place in the Sun" needs no company on the silver disc - it's an Oscar winning score and a MAJOR discovery! Put it out alone, Bruce!


Shortly after posting last night, I'd already made the decision it would be a standalone. However, we were able to get it up to fifty-two minutes - there were a couple of tracks that were potential bonus track cues - we didn't know if we'd use them or not because they were taken from an M&E track and had sound effects and I am just not interested in putting anything with SFX on CD, but when I heard what Chris had done with the two-and-a-half tracks, somehow managing to remove the SFX without compromising anything, I thought we'd include them - the fidelity of those couple of tracks is not as good obviously, which is why they'll be in the bonus section, but I thought we should have them just because the music is so incredible.

We're now in the midst of creating the packaging and then it will all go in for approval - my hope is we can announce this in the next eight weeks.

These three titles are superb Waxman, which means some of the best film music ever composed. "The Elephant Walk" has one of Waxman's most stunning creations, absolutely gorgeous. Waxman was one of the best of the best!

I agree, release "Place in the Sun" as a standalone, great great score!. Hope a Vol. 2 at Paramount will show up soon.

I liked to ask about another composer - Victor Young .

Actually Young was the primary composer at Paramount from the 30s thru the mid 50s - Waxman composed for most of the major studios - including Warners, MGM and Universal. Young also composed for RKO and Fox among others

Perhaps the greatest score Young composed was SHANE which recently had a fine first time release. But there are many other worthy Young scores from Paramont - some never issued in any form - which I would love to see on cd - especially a series of Cecil B. DeMille features - NORTHWEST MOUNTED POLICE '40, REAP THE WILD WIND'42, STORY OF DR.WASSEL '44, UNCONQUERED'47, SAMSON AND DELILAH'49 & THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH '53 .

Only the last two have been on disc and only S&D had some original tracks issued -- a small portion of the full score -- a more complete release of original tracks would be great . The Oscar winning TGSOE has a memorable score that has never had its original music tracks released including a number of terrific vocals by Betty Hutton and James Stewart ! Maybe the ones from the 40s are lost - he did so many great ones - LOVE LETTERS, TO EACH HIS OWN, FRENCHMAN'S CREEK, I WALK ALONE, MY FOOLISH HEART and THE UNINVITED. But I thought it was worth asking - any hope for more Victor Young?

(I also think SON OF SINBAD , THE CONQUEROR + OMAR KHAYYAM(even a reissue of the Decca LP) all deserve to be preserved if original tracks still exist - I know the 1st two are RKO!)

I've mentioned more Young is coming - exactly what those titles are remains unknown as all the material must be transferred and evaluated, which takes a lot of time - but I'm very hopeful your patience will be rewarded with some incredible releases.

I was expecting the Counterpoint label to specialize in releasing older Paramount material.
Has their apparent demise (or suspended animation) left a door open for others?

For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Brave One, Samson and Delilah and Johnny Guitar would be my prime Victor Young releases. None of the previous versions have been satisfactory.

My God, those Young scores from the '40s are Holy Grails of mine and perhaps the last I ever expected to see being released on CD!
Work your magic, Bruce, c'mon, make it happen...!

We'll work as much magic as humanly possible.

Meanwhile, I can't believe no one has guessed our next release!
