Yes, Tiomkin's DUEL IN THE SUN is number one on my re-recording list, but all those labels that do re-recordings are terrified that it would be a poor seller.

Re-recording wish lists - I love 'em!

Rozsa
  • SODOM & GOMORRAH
  • A DOUBLE LIFE, or an album of suites & themes from Rozsa's film noir scores
  • PLYMOUTH ADVENTURE
  • THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD

    Herrmann
  • ON DANGEROUS GROUND
  • THE DEVIL & DANIEL WEBSTER
  • THE BRIDE WORE BLACK

    Aaron Copland
  • anything complete

    Friedhofer
  • JOAN OF ARC

    Korngold
  • CAPTAIN BLOOD

    Roemheld
  • an album of suites & themes, featuring RUBY GENTRY, LADY FROM SHANGHAI, and DRACULA'S DAUGHTER

    Rota
  • WAR & PEACE

    Tiomkin
  • the Hitchcock scores: SHADOW OF A DOUBT, I CONFESS, and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

    Waxman
  • A PLACE IN THE SUN
  • DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE

    And these two should probably be re-re-recorded: ANTHONY ADVERSE and THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS. (It's a wish list, so why not?!)

    OP: No such suggestion is stupid.

    Some very weird/unlikely things have happened in the world of music and film/game scores.

    Possibility: the music of which you speak could potentially be included as part of a larger release, a recording of German film score. You never know. Unlikely, perhaps. Impossible, no.

    Mr. Fitzpatrick, all this does not mean we are not liking the Quo Vadis soundtrack. We love it.

    Since no one's heard of the film or the composer, I think your wish is unlikely to come true.

    The 1953 film "Martin Luther" is actually well-known in certain religious Lutheran circles and has been used as a teaching film/video for many years on the topic of the basics of the history of the Reformation that Luther started up from a Lutheran perspective.

    A Mark Lothar score release would be quite unusual!

    The 2003 film "Luther" and the Richard Harvey score (on CD) is another matter.

    Williams' Dracula might be interesting, but only if no one can find a better source than the Varese CD, which sounds like it was recorded aboard a sinking ship.

    Actually, speaking for myself, I LOVE the "Quo Vadis" recording so much that I hardly play anything else these days. Never get even slightly tired of hearing it again and again. I enjoy all things Tadlow, but they really hit that one out of the ballpark. So, I must admit I'd like something with that kind of power and range to get excited about. And, it would seem a most likely candidate is the previously mentioned "Sodom and Gomorrah", which is really a sister score to "Quo Vadis" and "Ben-Hur" and is certainly the equal of either. It is filled with incredible incidental party and dance pieces, rousing marches, intoxicating love themes, what more could anyone ask for? Plus, I'm sure they would have fun doing it.

    How about approaching Bear Family records that had that great series of German composer compilations?

    Tadlow Music, as a label, seems like it's very likely done with complete score re-recordings. Their last one, Waxman's Taras Bulba, was a while ago now and since then their only releases have been the Maurice Jarre compilation with excerpts from his Notre Dame ballet, the Lucie Svehlova compilation (with some reissued tracks mixed with some new great material), and Nic Raine's original score Shores of Hope. Plus the budget compilation of tracks from their various re-recordings, but not sure I count that.

    Every complete score reconstruction since Taras Bulba has been financed by and released on the Prometheus label, including Quo Vadis? which James Fitzpatrick at one point was saying would be the final complete score recording on the Tadlow label itself -- perhaps he was short on funding for that and went to Luc at Prometheus for financial help later in the process.

    Maybe James will change his mind in the future and give us a complete Jesus of Nazareth or The War Lord, two scores he's talked about wanting to do on Tadlow, but until he says otherwise I think the best we can hope for on the Tadlow label itself is perhaps complete reissues of the original tracks for Jarre's The Bride and/or A Passage to India, since he said he rescued the tapes (as he did for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Lion of the Desert, both released on the Tadlow label.

    Requests for new complete score recordings might better be directed at Prometheus/Luc because I think he's the one picking what gets done in that area by City of Prague and Nic Raine at this point. Recent he seems to have decided to focus on Goldsmith, with complete versions of (otherwise lost) Hour of the Gun and The Salamander inaugurating a new Goldsmith re-recording series. I can't wait to find out what's next in that series -- I'm hoping QB VII which should have some Golden Ager crossover appeal like Masada did.

    I am however very interested to know whether other reconstructions NOT in the Goldsmith series will continue to come out from Prometheus. Quo Vadis was excellent and I suspect sold well...I too would love a followup with everything Rozsa wrote for Sodom and Gomorrah!

    While we're at it, how about:

    GREEN DOLPHIN STREET

    ?????

    If I win the lottery and can finance Tadlow personally, I'll commission rerecordings for:

    OBSESSION complete
    SODOM AND GOMORRAH
    HELEN OF TROY
    KING RICHARD AND THE CRUSADERS
    THE WAR LORD

    And I'd do the same, except I'd commission Tribute Film Classics for the Steiner titles because John Morgan is an expert in his music, and I'd throw in a complete re-recording of Roy Webb's Sinbad the Sailor in there too, because as far as I'm concerned that's the gorgeous, sweeping, thematic Webb they SHOULDA done instead of the Val Lewton stuff! smile

    EDIT: Nobody but William Stromberg should do Obsession because he is the best conductor of Herrmann's music (including the superb Esa-Pekka Salonen and Herrmann himself) who ever lived....
