SOMWHERE IN TIME: LIMITED EDITION”
Music by John Barry

Limited Edition of 5000 Units
RETAIL PRICE: $21.98
STARTS SHIPPING JULY 20

La-La Land Records, Universal Pictures, and Geffen proudly present a Limited Edition remastered and expanded CD reissue of renowned composer John Barry’s (GOLDFINGER, OUT OF AFRICA, DANCES WITH WOLVES) original motion picture score to the beloved 1980 big screen romantic fantasy-drama SOMEWHERE IN TIME, directed by Jeannot Szwarc and starring Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer. Barry’s rich, gorgeous orchestral score perfectly embodies this heartfelt and heartbreaking romantic classic, enriching it with a resonating melodic and thematic timelessness that is vital to the film’s powerful sentimental allure. As the director himself states, “John’s music gave the film everything it needed. I still think it’s his most beautiful score – and one of the most beautiful scores in the history of film.”

Produced, mastered and edited from studio vault elements by Mike Matessino, this expanded CD is limited to 5000 units and features never-before-released score cues and additional music, including the music box arrangement of Rachmaninoff Rhapsody, Barry’s original music for Elise’s stage show, two previously unheard arrangements of the Somewhere In Time theme, and more! The exclusive, in depth liner notes are by journalist and author Jon Burlingame and the timeless art design is by Jim Titus.

Thank You La La Land Records! I am thrilled to have the source cues!

I do have a couple of questions though:

1) The album arrangement – which is the opening track – simply titled: “Somewhere In Time” – it is 03:01 – in length… could that - “concert arrangement” - be compromised within the presentation of the score – within another cue? It seems to be missing within the CD presentation… the CD presentation runs 76:37 – so you would have been able to fit it in??

2) The film version of “The Old Woman” – track #02 – which is absolutely fantastic; however – the album version is missing?

3) In regards to track #08 – “Is He The One?” – Film Version – is this different to the album version – as the times are very similar?

I have read notes on previously releases where Mike has written that – in regards to the wording – “FILM VERSION” – it is the exact same cue – and that the only difference could be the gaps of silence..

...which is why it states – “Film Version” – even though it is the same recording… could that be the case here?

Anyway – this CD will inspire me; give me hope – and – more importantly – give me a reason to love my life! I thank everyone involved. THANK YOU!!

A DEFINATIVE HOLY GRAIL RELEASED!
41 YEARS IN THE MAKING! (BETTER LATE THAN NEVER)

Things to note:

This is 45 minutes longer than the 1980 album.

It is 33 minutes longer than the Varese recording.

We now see that A Day Together on the original album looks as if it was actually the original end title, and that's why it's not the A Day Together we had in the film.

There are 55 minutes of John Barry score music compared to 40 on the Varese recording.

There are 61 minutes of John Barry total music including his source cues.

Anyone still doubting if they need this?

Cheers

I believe that track is an edited down version of Total Dismay, based on my knowledge of the music in the film correlated with this track list. Also note that Total Dismay is marked as containing unreleased music, but not being entirely unreleased.


2) The film version of “The Old Woman” – track #02 – which is absolutely fantastic; however – the album version is missing?


Based on the run time versus the film, I suspect that is an edited down version of the film version.

Cheers

3) In regards to track #08 – “Is He The One?” – Film Version – is this different to the album version – as the times are very similar?


I'd have to double check this but my recollection is that the album track is two cues edited together, but in the film, I seem to remember the first bit of the track is the second cue and the second bit is the first cue, so maybe they've just presented the two cues in the film order rather than the album order.

Cheers

Thanks Stephen; I do have one more question…

The running time of – “Return To The Present” – is identical to the album release: Both of them run at 04:10 –

However; on the new release there is an asterisk * next to the track name… which means that it is previously unreleased…

I have noted that the other two tracks – which I have mentioned…

“The Old Woman” –

and…

“Is He The One?” –

Do not feature an asterisk * - which answers my question; that they should be the same recording…

However; “Return To The Present” states that it features new music?

I believe it is a “typo” – because it features the exact same running time – at 04:10…

However; I still need to ask – if it is a different recording from the album track – why wasn’t the album version included?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that asterisk is accidental, but who knows? Maybe MV will clarify. Otherwise, let's see what shows up.

The thing I'm intrigued about is that the album version of "A Day Together" looks like it was the original end title, which finally explains after all these years why it's nothing like the film version of that scene.

It'd be nice to see if that edits up against the picture.

I assume the 'uplifting' bit that uses the same motif as the "A Day Together" scene in the film is when Reeve and Seymour are reunited.

I can see why they might have revised it, but it'd be intriguing to see how that edits up.

Cheers

For some odd reason I was never able to get the OST album and the rerecording from Varese became my only standalone album in possesion. I suppose I hestitated that an expanded complete recording would follow soon but in the 10 year plus it never happend.The wait is now over. So its going to be a treat to hear this as a deinite version finally.

This is a no-brainer! Beautiful score.

True, but does expanded mean complete?

True, but does expanded mean complete?

I'm pretty sure all the music that's in the film is on the CD and more. Whether there are more alternate versions or anything else that was omitted to make this a single CD, I don't know.

As my friend Dave Norris reminded me when we chatted about this, sometimes the choice of wording is contractual.

Cheers

I mean, a lot of that 'John Barry score' is alternates.

'Need' is a strong word here. Obviously as a whole there's more to the album than the Varese, no one can deny that. But for me, there's a couple things that would prevent me wanting it. But we'll see.

Incidently, when I first heard the OST version of A Day Together- I was puzzled how different it sounded intself even as an alternate it sound too somber and moody than the bright and sprightly charged film version. The film version on the Varese recording was a blessing. The film version is also my favourite cue in the film. Period.

Im sure the liner notes will spell more details once its out about its history. By the way, us fans owe it to actress Elise McKenna ie. Jane Symour herself. She is the one who persuaded director Jeannot Szwarc to let John Barry score the film who was also a friend to her. And Barry agreed whoe heartedly and the rest is history.

I agree, 'need' is always a strong word discussing luxury items.

I think it's just that people might be surprised at just how much of an uplift this CD is.

Pardon my ignorance, but is there any reason to keep the original album (aside from enjoyment of the presentation) if one buys the new LLL version, such as album versions or alternate takes or anything? From reading the above, it sounds like the LLL is all one really needs, am I correct?
