Interesting little video that shows Elmer Bernstein's music tracked with a few cut scenes considered to morbid and graphic for the film. Some static animation cells provide the visuals.

I haven't gotten into this release the way I did the Varese re-recording.
I guess the ebb and flow of the old LP/CD got too set in my brain.
I keep meaning to return to it to see if I can edit a more playable programme of highlights.
Although not quite the let-down the Ghostbusters score album was to me, this also hasn't set my world alight.

Are there any super-fans of this score, or Elmer B, who know how to re-create the Utah Symphony re-recording CD order from the Intrada release.
I know it wouldn't be exact cos of the tweeks Elmer made for the re-do version, but a close approximation would suffice (I know track 14 - Second Chase - begins things).
Cheers smile

Not taking into account the tweeks Bernstein made at the Utah sessions as you put it, a reordering of the film tracks into something resembling the Utah recording would follow thus:

Track 14 (Second Chase)
Track 2 (Dalben and the Warrior)
Track 20 (Morva)
Track 5 (Gurgi)
Track 8 (The Horned King)
Track 11 (Eilonwy)
Track 17 (Whirlpool)
Track 18 (Fairfolk)
Track 3 (A Special Pig and a Vision)
Track 4 (Journey)
Track 24 (Confidence)
Track 25 (Cauldron Born)
Track 32 (End Titles)

I may do another post of this that does take the tweeks into account.

Thanks Tack smile

Even listening to the tracks on the Intrada CD that I know from the Varese issue can be a bit jarring...just the differences in tempo, pitch, orchestration...even the mix!
There's certainly a dynamic punch to the Varese CD somewhat missing from the Intrada.
All those years getting used to the Utah Symphony performance takes some undoing!!
I do like some of the new unreleased tracks on the Intrada release, but I don't see me ever getting over the re-recording as a favourite.
Having said that, Gurgi Lives is very lovely and welcome!

Still hoping in a future re-relase of this OST from the original STEREO master tapes (I'm sure them exist: there are the recording session from year on the internet).
This new 24 tracks mix by Disney / Intrada is quite a mess and very different from the original film score.
The same hope for another completely wrong remixed score: Conan the Barbarian. It needs a new cd release with the genuine original stereo mix.
