-Casino Royale again! Can there be anyone left who doesn't already own this score? I've always been happy with the previous Quartet release.

I still don't own this score. Reason for that was I didn't want to pay the $30 plus dollars or I had other things to listen to. I don't know if it is worth the extra release but it always sells out. For all those who do own the previous releases, is it worth the purchase?


The 50th anniversary edition is remastered, sound improved, etc ... but to my understanding, comparing to the 45th edition, it is incomplete ...

Well, in the 2012 edition (45th Anniversary), they, Quartet released a double Casino Royale: on disc 1 the complete film score (33 tracks, 58 minutes), and on the disc 2 the vinyl version (34 minutes).
Now, in the 50th Anniversary, it’s only 1 CD, and 14 tracks have been deleted from the film score:

Cock O' The North
Agent Mimi Locked In Her Room
Little French Boy (Drink A Pint Of Milk A Day)
Money Penny's Bedroom
Buckingham Club
Back To London
Arrival In Berlin
Escape From The Berlin House
Hi There Miss Goodthighs
Dream On James, You're Winning
My Name Is Bond, James Bond
Torture Sequence (Complete)
Mata's Kidnapping - Flying Saucer
Sister McTarry

In other words, the 45 anniversary editon is complete (2 CDs, by the way); the 50th anniversary version (1 CD), remastered, is not complete.

It remains to be seen Yavar, though I'm not convinced this score will benefit from an expansion. I like the score and I quite enjoy the original CD, but I'm not sure more will necessarily improve on it.

Puts me to mind a little of folk asking for expansions of John Barry's 90s CD releases, when to be honest I feel most of them are already long enough and somewhat repetitive.

"La Dolce Vita" is a great score and this looks like such a wonderful release. I too always found the CAM LP/CD assembly oddly unfulfilling despite loving the music in the film. An "expanded with alternates" release of this score is something I never thought would happen.

Hopefully "8 1/2" is next. While a better album than "La Dolce Vita," there is a lot of great music in the film that isn't on the album (such as the haunting End Credits).

***

You ain't just whistling Dixie, (or even Dolce), Dylan. The only thing more exiting to me than knowing I can finally hear previously unreleased Rota material from LA DOLCE VITA is the prospect that maybe we will finally, at long last, have the long longed-for missing pieces of 8 1/2.

And yes, that end title has always been the most egregious, inexplicable, unforgivable omission on the RCA LP. And yes, there are many others. A long time ago, Stephen (GODSPELL, WICKED) Schwartz told me how sad he was that the album omitted the one cue he had been most looking forward to: the Rhumba (?) music for the seaside dance of the fallen woman for the children. (In recent years, an obscure 8 1/2 CD lifted that number off the actual film soundtrack and inserted it with its inferior sound onto the disc, not a very happy solution to the problem.) Here's hoping!

MGM releases are always called "Original MGM Motion Picture Soundtrack" instead of "Expanded Original Motion Picture Soundtrack". Has probably something to do with the licenses.

The sample for track four of "Snøfall" doesn't play. All the others for that score do.

I have such a soft spot for Russia House... such a smooth listening score all the way through. Will US retailers like Intrada be selling this? Always forget if the only way to buy Quartet releases is through their website.

Intrada also sells Quartet releases.

Is The Russia House a preorder at SAE? It doesn't indicate this while the other Quartet releases do.

It makes sense Intrada would sell it, because they were a soundtrack shop long before going into making their own product.

Anyone got the new CASINO ROYALE and does it sound better than the previous Quartet CASINO ROYALE?

Yes! It does! The best release on CD. The liner notes are good, but not on par with the 2 CD edition.That was a book!!!
