Perseverance Records talking about an upcoming holly grail score since now several years in their newsletters... With always the same mention at the end of each years: the holly grail score from the 80's have to be delayed to the next year but trust me it's well worth the wait etc...

Anyone over here have an idea of what will be this famous holly grail score?

Someone claiming to be a friend of Robin Esterheimer told me this will be finally the lost Vangelis score from Francesco (1989)... I have real doubts about that... looks too "big" for the label, but of course I can be totally wrong... Any ideas? smile

If Perseverance is doing a world premiere of a Vangelis score, I'd personally prefer it to be Missing (seems low-profile).

That being said, Francesco has its own merits and would certainly be welcome, since it never showed up on V's compilation albums, unlike the end credits from Missing; it's just a shame that the 150-minute cut was never released on North American DVD.

A Vangelis score is definately out of the question, it just can't and i refuse to believe that! Think people, he do not and never will be have some love and understanding for his fans. Maybe one day Aliens from other worlds manage to snitch the mastertapes from under his bed and give them to us in trade for fresh water, other than that, it will never happen!

You mean... there can be only one? wink

By the way.. I wouldn't count on it. Not that I have any inside knowledge of anything, but such things 'll only lead to disappointment.

what did their latest newsletter indicate? definitely this year? in the fall? a coupla weeks time?

it's got to be highlander. i can handle the disappointment if it's not, but man, with all those rumors turning up in the other thread just now, it has to be.

As we're 3/4's the way through the year and he's been shilling it for so long now, I've just been assuming its a way to keep us reading the newsletters

Some releases take time not only because of rights issues, but because other varying reasons. We've seen Intrada state before some releases taking eight years or even ten years. It took a few years, for example, from the time of the Bernstein box of rejected scores coming being leaked, to when it actually came up for sale.

Patience can be a virture.

Well, to be fair to Intrada, the difference is they didn't announce it over and over and over again. They did their work, and when it was ready then they announced it. There's a reason labels don't announce way in advance or before they know something is ready.

I think to be fair to Perseverance that they haven't really announced anything as they never said what the title is, just 'something' is coming.

I think to be fair to those who've HAD perseverance, when someone has said over and over that a Holy Grail is coming but it never comes then perhaps silence is the best policy so that expectations are not built up. smile

In fact the right year is 1956, and the title is... the title is... Oh I don't remember! Intrada, please, can you help me?

Not being mean just one koala's opinion.

The 80s were one single holy grail.

Well, the best score ever composed was recorded December '79 and January '80. So...

The 80s don't begin until 1983, so that qualifies as 70s. But I disagree that it is the best score whichever decade you file it under.
