From FB:

Our Christmas batch is ready and it will be announced in the coming days!.

Three very exciting albums on which we have worked hard and thankfully will be available.

You can find one title from the seventies and two from the eighties. We have an expanded Best Original Score Oscar-winning, an epic-adventure finally remastered and expanded in a 2-CD set, and the World premiere release of the original film tracks from a classy and beloved score by a classy and beloved composer.

Happy Christmas to all!

If that seventies title is ORCA (could maybe possibly fit the last clue) I wil literally walk barefoot through the snow to the North Pole and kiss Santa on his fat cheeks.

According to this post, I think that they will make actual announcement very soon...
And till that time we have wide expanse for guessing, especially for Best Original Score Oscar-winning release wink

Here are the best score winners from that period, per Wikipedia. I think we can count out The Omen (I believe Varese's is complete?), Star Wars (bc it's Star Wars) and The Little Mermaid (Disney). While I would like it to be Jaws, I'm not sure it would qualify as an "expansion" since really all it needs, as far as I know, is a cleanup.

Here's a better one:
I was told by a "secret agent" that one of the titles may be The Beastmaster.

That would be good. Excellent score.

I think that we probably can out Out of Africa too - original album is still in-print, MCA still get their money for it, so I doubt about this...

I also don't see how it would justify two CDs.

Sorry, but I think that 2 CDs score relates to epic-adventure score...
And Oscar & World-premiere will be 1 CD...

An epic-adventure remastered and expanded in a 2-CD set from the 80's?

hhmm... still no Delirious then? Hopefully next year...

You are right, I read it wrong. But I think OUT OF AFRICA is pretty much complete, the rerecording was a little over 30 minutes as well.

My bet is on A PASSAGE TO INDIA as the Oscar winning score...
It would be terrific to finally get DRACULA original tracks and remaster of the previous album... which would require 2CDs actually but only the film tracks would be a dream come true - and would fit both 70s title mentioned as well as "a classy score" clue.
No idea about the epic 2CD score.... since it probably leaves 80s as its period of origin.

I think we can count out The Omen (I believe Varese's is complete?),

Well, we can count out The Omen not because the previous release was complete (FAR FROM IT, ACTUALLY) but because it's still owned by Varese.

My first thought on the epic adventure would be "Willow" Or is that Lucas title owned by Disney now? Which would make it an Intrada release if it happened.

Here's some ideas from wiki:

"Classy" usually suggests Mancini and they've done a few Pink Panther titles... Return of the Pink Panther maybe?

I saw A Passage to India 4 monts ago and I don't remember having heard much more music than what's already on the album. But I could be wrong.

When you rule out the big Williams like ET, Star Wars or Jaws, the ones from musicians who have their own labels (like Vangelis, Sakamoto/Byrne, Moroder), the scores from musicals or jazz/pop/Rock films l(ike Around Midnight, Fame, Yentl, Purple Rain, All That Jazz, Cabaret...), The Disney and The Milagro beanfield war which can't be expanded since it has never been released in the 1st place... you don't have many left.

The Omen? No. As it is said above, it belongs to Varèse.

The way we were? A bit too Barbra for an independant label. I mean, it may be out of their league financially speaking.

The Right Stuff? Well... the varèse edition is OOP, it has some serious sound issues and it could be expanded. But, isn't it also Varèse property?

A little Romance? I don't know if there is much missing, but Delerue is still a safe bet, even if everybody agrees that this score is far from being his finest.

Out of Africa? I saw the film some months ago and I think there was some music which did not make the album. I'm not sure either.

Summer of 42? Legrand is highly celebrated at the moment. I don't have the album, so I don't know much about it except of course the ultra famous main title.

The Godfather part II? Well... It would be a possibility. Paramount has its vaults opened now, I know that the 1st Godfather album had little to do with the music heard in the 1st film, so it could be the same for the 2nd, as a result I guess some music could be added...


Ok, so I put my bet on the Godfather part II

I hope the one from the 70s is a French or Italian movie so that there is something for everyone.

Love Story : is there more music in the film?
