Any chance of these seeing the light?

Intrada had Firefox all set to go but unfortunately they can’t get the rights. This is a shocking shame

And Roger said the Solarbabies elements were missing. So neither will happen.

Pity about Solarbabies. Not a great score, per se, but fascinating as the only (?) Jarre electronic score to utilize an Ondes martenot. Some nice passages.

Lordy lordy... Jarre electronics PLUS the Ondes.... I'm trying to keep an open mind.

"Jarre" and "electronics" is like saying a "cookie" and "lettuce". I can't name a Jarre -- that I've heard -- with electronics that I wanted to hear again.

I had to separate the orchestral bits of "Ghost" to make suites for my enjoyment pleasure, and dump the electronic stuff.

I would purchase both of these.

So, you have no interest in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Witness, Enemy Mine, etc?

If they have orchestral bits I can take away like "Ghost", then I do. But having seen "Witness", I'm not particularly moved by the electronic score. The other two I have yet to sample.

Enemy Mine is interesting, as it is a case of "either / or" -- some passages are purely electronic, the others purely orchestral, with very little overlap.

The end title is one of the most impressive pieces of music Jarre ever wrote -- big, broad, celebratory -- imagine if Mahler wrote something in the vein of "Pomp and Circumstance"!

If you like (for example) Dark Crystal you should like the end of Enemy Mine.

Is the FIREFOX rights hold-up the usual Eastwood dead-end?
Isn't that also holding up THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES?
If so, how come some Eastwood titles have/are showing up at Intrada recently?

What is the "usual Eastwood dead-end"? Does Eastwood not like scores?

He likes scores, he just doesn't seem to be interested in doing business with labels who want to release ones connected to him.
Lukas mentioned, on quite a few occasions, how it was almost impossible to get Malpaso (Eastwood's company) to jump on board a new/expanded CD release.
I wanted to know if that was still the main sticking point.

I’ve had several conversations with Eastwood’s folks and they’ve been nothing but supportive. I’ve taken several runs at Firefox even locating the master Jarre had prepared. There’s something on the WB end that is holding it up but it’s not clear what.

Thanks for clearing that up Roger.
Good to see the old problems Lukas encountered in the years past have been hurdled.
But damn, there's always another one right after the next sprint.

"Life finds a way" wink

Does this mean that there is a possible chance of "Firefox" getting some sort of CD release?
It does not bother me how long I need to wait for this personal Holy Grail of mine, as long as it happens...
So please Roger, keep doing what you are doing - no need to rush it... just as long as we finally see that green light!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

FIREFOX is a great score. The electronic part kinda sounds like Jarre took lessons from Wendy Carlos. And yes, I am familiar with Carlos’ work on THE SHINING and TRON.

LaLaLand could take a stab at FIREFOX too given their track record with WB, or maybe Tadlow could do a re-recording with Carlos herself or Vangelis doing the electronic portion and Nic Raine & TCOPPO the orchestral.
