Listening to Tadlow's recording of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA tonight; first time in while... what a great recording of one of my favorite film scores. All the sonority and textures of the atmospheric desert pieces come out in a clarity like never before. Just a wonderful re-recording; obviously a passion project.

So agreed!

This is interesting - it looks like there are two versions of the Nic Raine conducting with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra performing:

Lawrence of Arabia - 50th Anniversary Edition
Silva Screen Records
Released: 2012
Conducted: Nic Raine
Performed: City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Duration: 76min 46sec

Lawrence of Arabia
Tadlow Music
Released: 2010
Conducted: Nic Raine
Performed: City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Duration: 77min 34sec


Is the Silva Screen release the same as the Tadlow? It looks like the track listing is the same ALTHOUGH certain cues are merged together on the same track and there is a marginal difference in the total running time.

Anyone know what's going on here?

I'm assuming the latter release is a repackage of the Tadlow but with only the first disc, some consolidation of tracks, all for inclusion on the Blu-Ray release.

Got it.

So what you're saying is "yes, these versions are the same, and for promotional reasons they chose to re-release it as a single disc version, combine some tracks, and some filler empty audio was lost, but for safety you should stick with the 2010 release."

I love how this board can spend days writing post after post bashing labels like Varese and the hard work of people like Yavar but can barely spare more than a piece of punctuation to close the loop on an old topic that's popping up again for people who weren't in the conversation 7 years ago.

For those just arriving:



Buy the 2010 Tadlow Music release conducted by Nic Raine and performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra for the best complete experience of this score.

Complete original recordings do not exist, and earlier releases like the 1990 Varese Sarabande aren't worth the poor sound quality.



In summary.

"Jazz Impressions of Lawrence of Arabia" by vibraphonist Walt Dickerson is my go-to version. For those who don't do vinyl, it is on Qobuz for only $6.99.

Nice, what a great find! Just looked it up and the main title version is really unique and entertaining:

Listening to this now.

What's with the silly circus music?

I’m pretty sure that theme represents the British. wink

A wasted track on a 34-minute album.

I guess Tadlow since its complete but TBQH there's a note in the main Lawrence theme the Pragmatic Praguerz keep screwing up by playing it half a step too slow that really takes me out of that recording.

I'm British but have never liked Circus music. I'm not frightened by clowns though, except Boris Johnson.

I listened to the Bremmer again the other day and remembered how I like it. I also like the Tadlow, so they both get play time, much like the album and original versions of Capricorn One.
