Got an email from Ark Square saying this was coming in September with new notes from John Scott and artwork by Jim Titus.
So I put 2 + 2 together and...maybe got 5??!!

Looking @ Intrada, this is a 2nd printing from JOS Records.

I think Scott himself has said the film has a crazy cult following. So that has probably had a bearing on a reissue, maybe.

If JOS is back in business full time, will there be premiere releases in the future. Still waiting for Mr.Scott's beautiful score to HAREM.

John Scott has always maintained his JOS Records catalog available, with new artworks for the reissues.

I'm sure that will be a very popular re-issue. I've got the original, and will get this too. It's been a while since it was on tv.

I was only thinking the other day that we've never had a cd version of The Long Duel. I never liked the film in the 60s/70s as it didn't seem to have enough action / battle scenes for my liking, but I reckon my tastes have mellowed to accommodate what is basically a romantic film with a great Vince Hill title song.

THE LONG DUEL is a very good score indeed...
Was he ( Scott ) ever covered by INTRADA?

And I personally wants his score to Detonator II: Night Watch to be released since I am a fan of that score.

I think pretty much all of the JOS titles were complete ?, so re-issues may only benefit from expanded booklets.

The older titles which were repressed a few years ago like the two Cousteau / Amazon CDs had only slighter different covers.

But the first pressing of The Final Countdown had an 8 pages booklet, and the new one 12.

John Scott original notes were quite long and informative though, so I doubt the new booklet add anything more except photos and a better design by Jim Titus.

But it would be great if there were some additional notes by the composer, like a foreword.

I miss his JOS new CD releases. Especially since bobbengan told us all the projects he had at the time.

If memory serves, the last CD release John Scott had announced in the early 2000s through his official website was Shoot to Kill. And he also had projects for Greystoke and Cousteau / Cuba, and probably others:

I'd pulled my Bd of Final Countdown out of storage recently with the intention of spinning it again soon.

I was thinking I'd do it last night, expressly to re-familiarize myself with the score since I'm one of those people who's always been a fan of it, and will almost certainly be picking up the soundtrack simply because of that.

Ultimately I found I wasn't in the mood for it last night, so I went looking for my typical Saturday night fare- a horror movie.
Ended up choosing Satan's Slave, entirely ignorant of the fact that it also contained a John Scott score big grin- and a good one too!

So, while I'm gonna be down for the re-release of TFC, what I'm really jonesing for now is a good release of SS.

... uh ... like this one?



Moscovitch Music issued John Scott's Satan's Slave on both vinyl LP & digi-pak CD at the end of 2016.

I have this on CD, and the booklet notes are very impressive. There's even an image of the recording log/invoice that accompanied the master tape. This is in mono, and performed on 8 or 9 instruments, but quite unique in Scott's discography. There's even a photo of John Scott with Norman J. Warren (plus Scott was involved in the album's production, too). A must-have, IMO.

smile Yeah. Something like that.


I saw that on Discogs, but I'm not familiar with label and wasn't sure how legit they were.
Good to know it's a solidly produced release.

I'll keep my eye out for it now- thanks!

Gentlemen, we also need a CD release of John Scott's Robin Hood which leaked this summer. A masterpiece IMHO.
