Well I was happy with the previous FSM cd of this until I listened to the sound clips of this new cd. Wow! I didn't realize there was that much unreleased music in the film. I should have known better, considering the annoying habit back then (in the 70's) of releasing 30 minute LP's. So...ORDERED! Thanks, Lukas!
Thank you Lukas! That a great year for Barry fans (and I hope that it's not over yet!) Just ordered with big package: 2 Barry - Kong + Quiller 2 Goldsmith - Shadow + Twilight Zone 2 Bernstein - Rat Race + Heavy Metal
ps I was right, when said pass for FSM offer '4.95 for King Kong!'
Fantastic news! Thanks so much Lukas & FSM... you do make sure that your soon-to-be-very-very-much-missed label - which changed the whole archival film music industry - goes out with a bang. Or rather lots of bangs...
First THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, then BODY HEAT, now KING KONG. Holy grails and surprise findings (the extra music from CONDOR never fails to amaze me!) galore. Many thanks again, folks!
Has any tinkering been done to the album master portion? On the first CD, the strings have this weird quasi-mono sound to it (listen to the conclusion of the end credits, you'll hear what I mean), and it's... well, the only words to describe it are impolite.
This is fantastic though, I'm impatient to listen to it!!
