So, it's Day 7 of "captivity" and while working from the one big bright spot is that I am now able to listen to my scores all day long while working, and in doing so I can catch up on particularly so call "long lost and forgotten" scores.

And today, I grabbed the expanded and re-released version of "Wyatt Earp" and gave it spin. Haven't listened to it probably since it was released.

OMG. Just a stunning score by James Newton Howard and reminded me how I felt that this is masterpiece. And the track "It all ends now/Mourning Ed" is such magnificent standout, the first half of it gives me chills still.

Am curious if this happens to anyone else?

Yeah, happened to me with A. F. Lavagnino's "Nel segno di Roma" when I revisited it around a half-dozen years after my initial purchase of that Digitmovies CD.

So good...one of JNH's best...that extended version that came out a few years ago was a real treat.

Wyatt Earp I believe has the deepest level of bass that I have ever heard in from any score recording, ever. The sound on the re-release is just stellar.

I agree; a superb score.

Fantastic score and release!

I've had a similar experience spinning Copernicus' Star by Abel Korzeniowski yesterday.

I don't know this one but looks intriguing. I'll have to look into this one.

Just last week I played Sneakers by James Horner. I hadn't played it for many years and I was really, really surprised how great that score is. I guess I enjoyed it more than I had ever before.

IMO Wyatt Earp is James NewtonHoward's masterpiece. A great old fashion score that actually has themes.

I gave Enemy Mine another spin recently. The outset of this this score is mostly synthesized and not the most accessible (and fairly "80s").

But as it progresses, moving from electronic to orchestral (symbolizing the growing friendship between the two characters) this score shapes-up as one of Maurice Jarre's finest efforts.

Jarre is a favorite of mine, though for me his style was an acquired taste, owing to his sometimes-odd instrumental blends and harmonies, off-kilter rhythms and a hesitance to be "big and lush" (even in epics). But Enemy Mine -- despite it being very much a Jarre score -- has some wonderfully (and atypically) full and melodically-linear writing.

In particular, that big, romantic, triumphant end title -- though not uncommon the post-Star Wars years -- is pretty uncharacteristic of Jarre. Perhaps he too was "going with the flow". But whatever the reason, Enemy Mine's end title is my favorite of anything Jarre ever wrote.
