The reaction to this release is really wondrous. I'm so glad that it can finally be shared with everyone. That remains what this is all about.

I have reflected on the experience of putting it together and would like to share a thought about it:

Eleven months ago Neil Bulk and I first saw the tape which we suspected might contain the alternate "Fortress of Solitude" cue. It was not unfamiliar music to me, having read the score and heard a MIDI version. Even so, the moment we had it on the machine at Warner Sound Transfer and first heard it is beyond description. Imagine... a 4 minute piece of John Williams music recorded with the London Symphony that we didn't think existed and that no one had heard in 40 years! It was very much like the moment when Nick Redman and I first heard the early "Binary Sunset" cue from Star Wars in 1996. It is difficult to articulate the experience; initially it really feels like you must be dreaming it. The first impulse is to roll the tape back and play it again to make sure it's real and actually there.

This weekend, a portion of the alternate "Fortress" cue will appear on the 2nd part of Maurizio Caschetto's podcast as well as in a Classic FM promo. These are opportunities to discuss the track and promote the release. HOWEVER, I'd like to suggest that listeners ordering the new release consider waiting until after they have it in hand to hear this amazing track. When it arrives, silence your devices, take out disc 2, go to track 15, close your eyes, and allow yourselves to have the same experience that Neil and I had, in all of its full quality glory. You can always hear the podcast and promo later!

This is just a recommendation, respectfully submitted for your contemplation.

Thank you all for your boundless passion.

Mike

That's fantastic. And just what I'll do with the "new" Fortress of Solitude. (It's why I didn't listen to the Harry Potter podcasts until after I'd heard that release, either.)

Mike, your advice is absolutely spot on. I've been listening to all of your podcasts you've done for your various releases. Keep doing them! They are the equivalent of "making of" bonus features on blu rays or DVDs. I like to download them and add them to my playlist at the end.

But, like a trailer that gives too much of a movie away, I absolutely will not give into the urge to listen to the Fortress cue until I have it physically in my hands and can listen to it properly in my listening room. Something like this needs to be savored.

I'm with you on this.I too want to savour that first time moment when I get my set.

Solid advise, Mike! Thanks for caring for us in such an intricate manner. At least even If do listen to the 2nd podcast, I will ensure to skip that section.

Having said that, that was a very nice video of you and Neil S Bulk (on Youtube) holding the the original 'Goody' master tapes that is also equally amazing. Thanks for sharing.
