70s?

Hey, Bruce hasn't shot down my guess yet!

...

Not the 60s? Darn!

Could it be one of the other two Goldsmiths you have percolating?

A non-Paramount Western already on CD in some form but not Elmer or Alfred.

70s?

The last great decade for film - I'd be happy with anything from that decade - well, almost anything smile

It is not.

'70s western comedy/drama? It's gotta be Missouri Breaks (the original film recordings). Seven weeks from licensing deal to announcement = most impressive.

To return to Victor Young for a moment, Bruce, I recommend, if it's available, that you listen to ABOUT MRS. LESLIE. It's got an absolutely beautiful main theme, and one of the "throwaway" themes heard only twice (and briefly) in the film is almost more rapturous than the main theme.

I agree! More Victor Young! smile

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.


I thought that the WB release of FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS conducted by Ray Heindorf on LP and later on CD was a quite faithful representaion of this great score. I know that it isnt the original tracks -- it would amazing if Bruce finds them --

Wouldn't that be something? I know I'd be dancing a western jig - all the original film tracks for the first time and the LP re-recording remastered from the original album masters (I didn't care for the Ryko EQ and decided to go back to the source. The original film tracks are great - leaner and meaner but just wonderful-sounding. I would advise everyone to be here first thing Monday morning smile

Far out. I finally got one!

Good show, BK. Looking forward to it.

And if memory serves me right, this is the first John Williams release from Kritzerland!...

You are correct sir!
...and this time he has not bothered to put "probably the last" as he did for Goldsmith (but immediately retracted). New horizons are opening up! And for a Williams expanded piece you might think he would up the pressing a tinge.

Bruce, this is the definitive edition for "The Missouri Breaks" ?

I should hope so. And yes, we've upped the number a little but given the previous releases and that it's not, you know, one of those 80s or 90s things, I was not comfortable upping it much because I think most of us have learned the hard way that once you hit a certain number people then think they can wait until it's down to its final fifty to order - we're not quite set up to do that, and while some titles still sell out, many don't, including some surprising ones. Even Breakheart Pass at 1000 copies took a few days, which was really surprising to me. This one won't be around long and we need a sellout every now and then.

How much NEW music, as opposed to 'film version of LP track' does this score (Missouri Breaks) feature?
It's been many moons since I saw the film and I don't recall how much 'missing' score there was.
Just curious.

I'm not sure how to calculate because Williams rearranged a lot of the album tracks to play as cohesively as possible, and therefore they don't always resemble what's in the film. I can say there's probably ten more minutes of music, maybe a bit more, a couple of unused cues, and some bonus stuff. I suspect that disc one will run an hour but can't swear to that yet. The original LP was about thirty-seven minutes.

Listening to the complete score in the original tracks is a whole different deal and a pretty amazing one.
