Terrific release of a brilliant score. Difficult to listen to at times; so intense and emotionally draining. Wish Elfman still wrote like this. And the sound is very fine.

It was a fun adventure trying to find the tapes for this score. It was a journey, but I did find them a few years ago when Cary and Bryon and I were working on it prior to Concord's involvement. Glad to be mentioned in the Special Thanks as this is one of my favorite Elfman scores and the movie is SO dang good.

Ordered. I'm glad to see this early Danny Elfman score see a full release. The original 1995 Varese commercial release only had 9 cues and ran 30:02.

For you fellow Danny Elfman completists, young Danny hand-made one-at-a-time his "Composers Personal Edition" promo complete with humorous pseudo-Varese-lookalike jewel case inserts on "DEAD HUSBAND RECORDS" with 18 cues and a running time of 63:34 on a gold TDK CDR. Only a very few copies were made, mostly for industry or personal use. Exactly how many were made, I'm not surethat anyone knows except Danny. Maybe 20-30? In the recent past, I was approached privately by someone on this list with a copy...with a hefty four-figure price tag. Since I already had a copy, I'm glad I didn't have to deal with that temptation.

This new release may give that oddball collectible some well-deserved competition.

Terrific that this finally got expanded, such a classic Elfman score.

Anyone know what the deal is with Broken Glass Part 2 (what is it the alternate of), and with Mackie Interrogates Part 1 (where is part 2)?

By the way, it seems that these two tracks correspond to the promo versions:
- Disc 1 Track 13: All Fucked Up
- Disc 2 Track 11: The Old Well (Alternate)

The other tracks with the same title on the Deluxe are longer.

So, Danny Elfman wrote an 80 MINUTE symphony on loss, regret, pent-up anger and despair...and could only give us 30 MINUTES from that symphony, back in 1995 (virtually an excerpts album).
It's a heavy listen, undoubtedly, and a real mood killer (if you're feeling chipper), but it's so raw and tragic, it's hard to pull away and escape from the sound world that Elfman creates for the excellent film.
The years following SOMMERSBY, when you had no clue what his next score was gonna sound like, were great times indeed.

This one is one of the best positive cases for expansions I can think of. I had the original 30 minute release and really, apart from the main title, hardly played it. Listening to the new version is like a whole new experience. It’s been on my constant play list ever since I got it. So many times I stick it on thinking I’ll just listen to a few tracks and then get so caught up in it I’m at the end of CD 2 before I know it. There’s something just so involving and interesting when listening to it. Absolutely love it!

We can't make positive cases for expansions on this forum in front of Thor.

I'm just teasing you, Thor.
