I'm going to add to my previous list "The chase" (John Barry, rare CD), "Becket" (Rosenthal, rare CD) and "To each his own" & "My foolish heart" (Victor Young)

Unfortunately, it looks like a re-recording is our best chance of getting Becket. Last month, Roger confirmed that the tapes for this fine score (including the LP master) are lost.

Adding to my previous list, I have recently thought of a legit release of Nicholas and Alexandra, plus releases of the Disney Package films from the 40’s (especially Ichabod and Mr. Toad).


Thank you for advising me about that.

I fully agree with your observations about Nicholas and Alexandra and, generally speaking, Rodney Bennett and other british film music composers. They´re underrepresented, but we don't know what exists and I fear the worst certainly.
Two examples: Malcolm Arnold's Roots of Heaven & The Inn of the Sixth Happiness are available, yes, but only in the grey market. I suppose a 'legit' lincensed release would be highly unlikely unless Kritzerland take a chance, i don´t know.

I'd also love to have Jarre's Jesus of Nazareth complete or done by Tadlow.

Marketa Lazarova - Liska




What’s the picture supposed to be of? It’s not showing up on any of my devices. I had heard that there was a CD of Liska’s score released some time ago, but I also read said CD took the music off the final mixed track for the film and it’s supposedly long OOP, which is why I included it in my grail list.

Not familiar with Roots of Heaven, but I certainly wouldn’t mind a legit release of Inn of the Sixth Happiness. As far as the improbability of a release for either score, there is now the added complication of both films being Fox films, therefore adding Disney into the picture.

Goodness, I hadn’t realized there had been a re-recording of the score. I certainly don’t recall seeing a thread here about this (going by the release date listed on the Amazon page, this is quite recent and after I had already seen the film). Can you comment on the quality of the recording, Lokutus?

As far as I know INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS has only been released as a b**t, although I don't have a copy so couldn't vouch for that. But ROOTS OF HEAVEN, which is one my favorite Malcolm Arnold scores and is quite grand, is available on what I believe is a legitimate release. It's from vinyl sources and in mono (it's original format), but sounds very good to my ears. It's kind of an odd release called THE CINEMA of JULIETTE GRECO and contains ROOTS (the highlight), THE SUN ALSO RISES (also from the LP) and some Greco songs. If I'm wrong about the legal status, I apologize and will delete this comment if someone can clarify.

They all are public domain in Europe and all mastered from vinyl I think.

Nick Redman was looking for tapes way back, but all they found is on the extra audio track of the Twilight Time Blu-ray for Roots, AFAIK. Same tracks as for the LP as it's missing the two cues recorded by Alfred Newman.

The problem with el/Cherry Red is that you never know what you'll get. They have many titles in their catalog that have been properly licensed, but there is nowhere something like "Licensed from UMG" to be found. Unfortunately, they also tend to brickwall the sound on their releases.

Well, the one real "holy grail" for me is Max Steiner's incredible "Helen of Troy" score. Wish that Tribute, who offered great recordings of several rare Steiners, had gotten around to that one. But, I do adore Tadlow's releases and pray that they might consider "Helen" someday.

Holy Grails are any and all unreleased Goldsmiths and Horners (including rejected scores that were recorded and are waiting for release).

My true Holy Grail is a Goldsmith score that was rejected *before* recording. smile

As far as Jerry Goldsmith is my all time favorite film composer (what a surprise here on that very forum) his stuff has fortunately been already very well preserved....even if there are still little holes.

But there are many very good other Silver Age composers whose nice late 60ies/early to mid 70ies stuff still remains mostly unreleased, for instance Dominic Frontiere, Don Costa, Oliver Nelson, Dave Grusin, David Shire, Billy Goldenberg, Fred Karlin, Gil Mellé and the likes...

This is the stuff I would like to get now.
I badly miss the TV OMNIBUS and other LALO SCHIFRIN FSM boxes days....

Fortunately, Lalaland did a terrific job with their three Quinn Martin 2 CD set volumes...

Did i mention, Nicholas Pike's "The Prince and the Pauper." Loved the coronation march.
