Well, it meant exactly what I said. For me the orchestra is too small too buy those CDs. .

That has got to be one of the most stupid things I've ever seen on this board..

Everyone here is DUMBER just for having to be exposed to such a statement.

I won't even got into how hypocritical the statement given what you posted afteward.

Shakes head in total shock..

And you know what I think is the dumbest? To compare a deliberetely intimate score like Testament with a superhero score.

You really haven't a clue do you?

Barry Gray would write scores for the GERRY ANDERSON shows with groups as small as six players.....

Episodes of THE MAN FROM UNCLE would use groups no bigger then 27 players for the pilot and 8 to 16 for the weekly episodes.

Lee Holdridge used about 30 players on his scores for the short-lived TV Series WIZARDS AND WARRIORS.

Arthur B. Rubinstein had about the name number for THE SCARECROW AND MRS. KING..

Composers write for the groups they can afford.

To dismiss any score because "The Orchestra isn't big enough" is just insane.

You`re obviously the one who doesn`t have a clue or at least is not able to read. I`ve specificly mentioned Shirley Walker`s "Mask of the Phantasm" which is quite similar to the Batman tv scores. And it uses a large orchestra because the score is supposed to be that way! So I`d rather listen to that kind of music performed by that kind of orchestra.
Oh, btw, I had no idea Scarecrow and Mrs. King featured superhero scores. Great scores by Rubinstein though.

Just a last word. If there would be a Star Wars tv show with the John Williams kind of music performed by a 30 piece orchestra due to budgetary reasons, I also would prefer the complete LSO from the film versions. There is a difference between deliberately smaller scores and reduced orchestras due to budgetary reasons. That`s exactly my point. But I doubt you`ll understand.

I'd love the Animaniacs and Tiny Toons! Get working on those now; I'd buy immediately.

By the way, what about The Real Ghostbusters? One of the greatest shows of all time.

Agreed. We need more releases of cool cartoon scores (Thundercats, G.I. Joe, X-Men, ...).

Regarding Batman TAS, I always like its version of the Elfman theme better than the Batman movies, something with the orchestration (and also the great opening montage) that made it even more memorable. That series really went for a more darker/adult approach, though I felt as the seasons progressed that diminished, same with RGB.

There is a STAR WARS TV Show, it's called "STAR WARS-THE CLONE WARS", it's scored by Kevin Kiner.

They do have orchestral sessions for it, I'll have to ask him about how large the are, but it wouldn't surprise me if they were in the 30 to 35 piece range.

Scanning the spreadsheet for the episodes represented on Vol. 2, I spotted "Mad as a Hatter". One of my favorite episode scores.

And plans are in motion for "Animaniacs" and "Tiny Toons"? Shut the front door.

As much as it pains me that some people seem to be inventing reasons not to be happy about this news (seriously, when someone gives you a donut, I bet you complain that there's a hole in it), this is some of the best soundtrack news I've heard since...Intrada released "Love at First Bite", which just goes to show what a golden age this is for soundtrack collecting.

Excelsior to you, MV.

Then we would focus on the "Adventures of Batman and Robin" and "The New Batman Adventures". Hopefully, Superman TAS, Justice League (TAS and Unlimited) and the two BTAS animated direct to DVD movies (Subzero and Batwoman) will also see the light of day in the next few years.

OMG!!!! MV -- THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME HAVE THIS AMAZING ORGASM!!!!!!

The thought that there would be a B:TAS Volume 2 had been so out of the question for me for so long...the idea that there would be not only a second volume (4 DISCS) but also the promise of a third volume and potential work on the other 1990s DC series...wow! Thanks, MV and LLL! You'll have my $59.98 when it goes up for sale on the website. Thanks also for making Vol 1 available again - I already own it, but this is music that many people love, and they'll be happy to finally afford it!

X2 is another must-have for me - I've loved Ottman's score for a long time. But let's face it, that one's going on the backburner until I acquaint myself with the new BTAS!

THE BODYGUARD seems to pass unnoticed, but for me is the most interesting title announced.

people only remember Whitney Huston's songs but Silvestri's original orchestral score (dont know how many musicians played it, pretty sure more than 35 wink ) is quite impressive, with a gorgeous "solitary trumpet" main theme, secondary themes, action cues, tension, lyrical moments... A great piece, really.

I think I tried my point very clear and explained why I won`t buy those CDs. It`s exactly the kind of music (heroic superhero music) that sounds best performed by a large orchestra. That`s my opinion!. Your response indeed proofs that at least some people got dumber after reading my post.


Well I understood what you are saying Counterpoint. It's really not that hard to comprehend. wink

Yeah The Bodyguard, The Phantom, and Black Rain took me by surprise. I knew BTAS Vol 2 was coming b/c Lolita Ritmanis in a recent interview spilled the beans on LLLR releasing more scores from their DC animated shows. I remember somebody said way back that Milan still own the rights to The Phantom score. I thought an expansion would never see the light of day, but it will I wonder how LLLR pulled that off. Didn't see Black Rain coming at all. That came out of the blue. Though I was hoping The Bodyguard would get a release someday by any label. I didn't think a label cared about the score much to release it finally. I just thought it wouldn't get a release b/c of Watertower records contract rules with LLLR. X2 also came by surprise b/c the movie is 9 years old an is sort of recent. Though it's a good score. I don't really care too much about the expansion as much as I do the others.

No one has mention it yet, but any way we could get more Batman Beyond? The best music happened in Seasons 2 and 3 and we have none of it.

And if these are getting released, how much longer are we waiting for Batman and Robin?

How about any unreleased Beltrami, Shapiro (Mysteries of Pittsburgh is especially georgeous) or Eidelman, please? ;-)

http://theodore-shapiro.com/cd_mysteriesofpittsburgh.htm

Any chance there? ;-)


Following "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Idiocracy", another Shapiro CD would be great. (Full disclosure: I have no qualms about giving up my first born if it means an honest-to-Christ CD of "The Big Year".)

Along with Tiny Toons and Animaniacs, I hope they release some music from Freakazoid. Some great music there, including some neat Bernard Herrmann/North by Northwest spoof music from an episode called "The Cloud" (I think).

Well, if that happens they have to do the score for the episode "Freakazoid vs. Fanboy" and dedicate it to this forum....
