Hi raferjanders -- just wanted to chime in and compliment you on your covers for Cape Fear, The Young Lions, Never So Few, and 7 Women. Thanks for honoring my requests on the latter three! Would you be up for some Franz Waxman requests, or do you still have your hands quite full with the remaining Friedhofers?

If you're up for them, these are the ones that would be highest priority because they never received individual covers:
Man on a Tightrope
Sorry, Wrong Number
Stalag 17
Botany Bay
Elephant Walk
Night and the City (would be great to have separate covers for the Waxman and Frankel scores)
The Invisible Ray (suite at the end of the Bride of Frankenstein re-recording)

Aside from those there are some others that I bet you could make improved covers for (ie. Sayonara), but those are the most important. smile

I don't see why not. I think there's only Broken Arrow to go?

Lewis&Clark presents the custom cover no one has been waiting or asked for (except L&C himself roll eyes ):

Wow, raferjanders, Christmas came early! Thanks for your great work on all of these; they are fantastic. It sounds like Intrada's upcoming 4 disc 11 score Golden Age set is very likely to be Franz Waxman, so I'll probably be asking you for a bunch more on December 5th. smile

For now I've got a few more Friedhofer requests:
The Best Years of Our Lives (not the re-recording)
individual covers for the four William Stromberg-conducted suites on a Marco Polo disc in the 90s: Seven Cities of Gold, The Rains of Ranchpur, The Lodger, and his first original credited score, The Adventures of Marco Polo

Also, I suspect you might be able to do a better Boy on a Dolphin cover than Intrada did (they were trying to replicate the LP cover). Finally, just curious, but do you have the Kritzerland complete release of One Eyed Jacks, by any chance? There's an inside cover (very distinct from the LP cover re-creation on the front) Bruce had designed but never made available online to people...was wondering if you might be able to replicate it.

I do. This okay? I have some alternates in the works ...

Yes, it's great! Thank you. I like your alternates too. May I request the addition/change of some conducting credits?

I don't know who conducted the film recording of Best Years, but One-Eyed Jacks was conducted by Irvin Talbot, if I'm not mistaken.

Ranchipur, Seven Cities, The Lodger, and Marco Polo are not for the original recordings but actually individual covers for my William Stromberg-conducted Friedhofer album (Moscow Symphony Orchestra): https://www.amazon.com/Friedhofer-adventures-Lodger-Ranchipur-Cities/dp/B00000465E

I really love them otherwise, tho'! Similarly, The Invisible Ray (Waxman) is for the Silva suite performed by The Westminster Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Kenneth Alwyn. (It was a bonus on their re-recording of The Bride of Frankenstein, which I bet you could also do a great cover for.)

Also wondering if you might try a hybrid of your two Botany Bay covers. I like the blue coloring and style of the credits on the first one, but I love the full image with the ship featured in the background (rather than down at the bottom) of the second (but not crazy about the wide red gradient bar at the top and bottom).

Ah yes, re-reading it again I clearly wasn't paying attention.

I was experimenting - the bars were originally blue ... but that solution never really worked due to the lack of vertical imagery. Anyway, your idea has, I think, produced a much better cover smile Good call!

Thanks! I agree.

The only problem with that is that it weirdly cuts off the top of the nice covers you designed for The Lodger (the title) and The Adventures of Marco Polo (his hair). I don't need them standardized, personally -- would rather each cover worked as best as it can on its own, in its own way. Two of them are more horizontal images so the bar isn't a problem, but for the two more vertical images...

Yes, and I would like to offer a special additional thanks to raferjanders not just for his fine work but also for putting up with all of my little suggestions/requests. Love the new Stromberg covers!

How about Mr. Skeffington from the same team? That one was released by itself and had its own cover but I was never wild about it...

Cheers. Though time and often painstaking effort are expended, for me it's all to the good smile

I thought I'd do an alternate for this:

I wasn't keen on the ghosting of that Zulu warrior on the BSX cover:

I would also like to thank the very talented cover artists, including Chris, raferjanders, Brad and Josh, for all their hard work and willingness to tolerate all our requests during the year.

This thread is always my first port of call when visiting FSM. I look forward to seeing what else is in store. Hopefully some Silver and Bronze age goodness? smile

Yes excellent work around here!

I'm not to fond of LLL's cover for Titanic. It's a rather generic composite which lacks a focal point. Maybe it was mandated by the studio.

There's some really good Titanic 3D poster art on the web. The graphic below would've been perfect. IMHO. Unfortunately I can't find a decent clear HD quality image-

This is a better composite too-

Does anyone have new covers for the scores in the Varese Stephen King box?

Some Titanic alternates would be wonderful too! Thankfully the booklet cover is on the Warm Butter site, but I prefer to use different covers for alternates, source music, etc. when possible.

I do this too… often when ripping scores with a lot of bonus material, I will make the score itself “disc one” and the bonus “disc two” and use a different cover. In extreme cases, where there is a lot of bonus material (e.g. Star Trek: The Motion Picture, or Mutiny On the Bounty), I'll make a separate album out of the bonuses, with an alternate cover. That's where some of the ones I have made come from, even if I may have been satisfied by the original artwork (e.g. Conan).

A last request for the year:

Any Last Jedi covers?

Agreed! Would love to see covers that utilize the Varese key art for each of the titles, as seen in the booklet included in the set.
