I echo the sentiments of the last two replies. So glad you seem to be doing better! God Bless!

James, any possibility of a snippet of the cover art for the forthcoming CD? Thanks.

I cannot be the only one frustrated by the lack of forthcoming information on this release.
A lot of people contributed towards making this important recording happen. Some paying a LOT more than I did.
This was 3 years ago and the decline in James' health not withstanding that is a long time to wait.
In his liner notes on all his recordins he (James) always is at pains to thank all his team for their contributions. Can members of his team not take up the challenge and get this released or at least let us know what is happening.

I do not like having to make these comments and I sincerely wish James well asap but like him when this project began I too was healthy and financially comfortable, now my time is running out. So please someone make it happen perhaps for Easter!


I think you may have answered your own question smile


In light of the current situation seems very unlikely, however it would be a very welcome surprise if the release is announced for Easter!

I can't remember how much I contributed. I think it was a LOT. I am not frustrated by the lack of news. I just hope that James is doing alright. He has mentioned some health issues. That is enough for me. I don't need to hear an apology or see his personal health records. Anyway, I hope this release will not become a burden to James....

I appreciate all the work he has done. When I think back to the release of El Cid, and how exciting it was to have the complete score. Wow, it brings a smile to my face just thinking about those days. Then to have him record Quo Vadis?, Thief of Bagdad, and Sodom and Gomorah.... I have faith that he is doing his best. King of Kings sounded like it was dream project for him.

I do not like having to make these comments and I sincerely wish James well asap but like him when this project began I too was healthy and financially comfortable, now my time is running out. So please someone make it happen perhaps for Easter!

I hope your time (and mines) doesn't run out, and everyone will be able to enjoy the release. Hang in there.

-Rex

I'm 73 and have loved Rozsa since seeing B-H at the age of 15. Interestingly, my favorite film before B-H was Journey to the Center of the Earth with music by Herrmann. I must have seen that 5 times without noticing the music. With B-H I was aware of the music instantly and came home going over the themes in my head. Strange that.

(Hey, I never miss an opportunity to bash Benny!) smile


This is funny...I was EXACTLY the same but a few years younger. I LOVED "Journey" and remember being mad that BEN-HUR won so many Oscars while watching on TV and "Journey" was largely ignored. Saw BEN-HUR later and was blown away. I didn't pick up on themes but was impressed with the music in both. It wasn't until I got the soundtrack to B-H (one of my first) that I truly understood its greatness. I do love Herrmann too, though.

Anyway, eagerly anticipating the new KING OF KINGS.

Beacuse of this global pandemic; the schedule is definetly screwed up. Even if the set is ready its going to take even further for them to process orders and ship them to us.

Why is that exactly? Forgive me if I'm missing the obvious. As far as I'm aware, the mail is still getting through. Indeed, online shopping has exploded. I wouldn't be surprised if my copy, when and if it eventuates, isn't dropped on my front lawn by a drone.

Not sure how things work in your country, but here in the UK where I'd imagine Tadlow discs are sent from the post is handled by human beings. At present they are down by about 30% personnel due to staff off sick or self-isolating. The postie on my route at the moment is a worker filling in for someone off sick (on a second round), so delivery that should be around 09.30 in the morning is turning up sometime in the afternoon (if at all). I got a government letter on Saturday that had been sent 9 days earlier.

On-line doesn't mean that people are absent. Customs inspections in particular are not automated.

If the mixing/editing and artwork is done it could be distributed through digital platforms - just in time for Easter wink I guess we have to wait until Christmas, though. I have no problem with that.

A small problem might be that subscribers to the project were promised actual discs before the rest got theirs...

It is obvious that due the pandemic it cannot be released/shipped .

But it will be nice to get any update - maybe tracklist, album cover, or at last estimated, possible release date?

But of course, James health is the most important.

Sorry, I always forget about these things. In reality, I'd better shut my mouth on this title, because I didn't contribute to the campaign. To me it's always about getting the music - irrelevant whether on CD or download (as long as it isn't compressed) or if it's two weeks sooner or later. I can understand, of course, that people may have different priorities.

Right now the most important thing is that we are all staying healthy!

Cover art or even a small video of the recording session would be really great!
