How much music would you want on the release? All of it, all 2 hours (ish) of score on two discs?

I'm a completist most of the time, but I think in this case, I'd be content with most of the material NOT simply re-hashed from BATMAN FOREVER. A successful album could almost certainly be put together that ran under an hour.

Keep in mind a lot of the "recycled material" is writ much larger than it was in Batman Forever. The finale cue from Forever has a huge choral backing in B&R, etc.

I think 2010 would be a perfect year to celebrate BATMAN FOREVER 15 year anniversary!

I would want around 1h, 49m, 29secs of the score. As much of it as I can get!

I think Batman & Robin is superior in every way to Batman Forever, and deserves to be heard in its entirety. It's an awful movie, but really one of Goldenthal's best works.

At 45 minutes I think it will be a great listening experience just like Batman forever. I would be very happy with a complete score , but I'd rather have an album that makes me think "I wish there was an expended release". If that makes any sense

I am happy with the Neal Hefti and Nelson Riddle albums.

Not to mention the knockoff that Sun Ra played on.

I don't know. I'll let Goldenthal (preferably) decide what makes a good listening experience, and how much or what music should be included. Just as long as it isn't C&C.

Considering it's taken this long (hypothetically speaking) to get an official release, and an expanded one would no doubt take longer, gimme everything.

I seem to remember hearing in an interview Goldenthal mentioning that he did prepare an album of Batman and Robin for release around when the film came out, but that it wasn't followed through on by Warner. He sounded rather bitter about it, as he made special mention of carefully assembling the album to emphasize the new material.

Does anybody else recall this or am I misremembering something I heard years ago...?

Nope, you're absolutely correct. He's said it a couple of places, the most recently I heard was a lecture or Q&A session at some venture. I have an audio recording of it.

I would be happy with a complete release of music that Goldenthal composed and recorded.

I made a clip of the bit where Goldenthal speaks about the B&R situation:

Perhaps a compromise - in the liners of (what's hopefully a C&C) release, a quick blurb on what would have been in the 40-minute album. FSM's sidebar on the aborted Superman IV album was a perfect way to go - I carved up a playlist out of that and it flowed rather well, imo (yes, in direct contradiction of my C&C thread, but hey, even evil has standards).

Jai Winding's POISON IVY instrumental cover from this is campolicious! Love it!

This huge score would deserve a complete presentation, although I would be more than happy to have a carefully-assembled single CD spotlighting the newer material (I love the choral writing for Mr Freeze and also Robin's little fanfare motif).

Ditto, I liked both of those themes Goldenthal composed. smile

I think a presentation along the lines of LaLaLand's Godzilla would be very nice. With a playlist from the what the original album was going to be, as mentioned. However I also really wouldn't mind the original album, maybe plus some additional material. I enjoy Goldenthal's Batman music and the AMAZING playing (especially in the brass) by the LA orchestras on both & Robin and Forever, so any kind of presentation of the original score would be MOST welcome!! Com'on MV, we know you're reading this, in the classic words of Captain Picard, 'Make it so!' :-D
