I know this title has been brought up in the past as to availability, but it's been quite a while, and since the soundtrack came out in 1967 as a (re-recorded album) the time span is even greater. I realize it's probably a matter of rights to the music, but can any of the major labels consider a complete score issue on cd? A cue titled 'Lonely Bottles' is a marvelous Jones jazz piece with sonics for days - at least in the film. An Oscar nominee for Best Original Score, it deserves to be heard all over again.

Absolutely!. This one is well overdue a CD release.

Bring it on!

Unfortunately Columbia is that studio where a lot has been lost.
But I do hope at least the album masters are still around.

I'm a huge fan of this score and, incidentaly - and according to me - the mono release works better than the stereo one (sounds "fake" stereo)...but I didn't know this was a RE-recording ! I just wanted to make sure...
And could you tell me if, by any chance, another great Jones' score MIRAGE is also a re-recording ??!! I love the cue : chase in Central Park !!. Would be great to get both scores expanded release...

I watched the film for the first time, on the big screen at BFI, London last night. A bleak, dark but powerful movie.

It has a superb score by Quincy Jones much of which isn't on the album. Always dramatic and sometimes modern jazz is used to great effect. The final third of the film isn't scored. A real act of cultural vandalism if Columbia destroyed those original recording tapes.

Surely, at the very least the album rerecording could be released?

As a reminder, many recordings by Quincy Jones are lost or rather un-located: see the odd case of "The Getaway" released by FSM.

There's a nice in depth interview with Q in the Feb.2018 issue of GQ USA. In it he's asked about facing racism in the industry. First he responds to finding work as a film composer.

"Well, I wanted to do that since I was 15. But they didn't use brothers. They only used three-syllable Eastern European composers - Bronislaw Kaper, Dimitri Tiomkin."

Then for In Cold Blood, Q details how Truman Capote tried to remove him from the film. Capote called up director Richard Brooks and couldn't understand "why a Negro is doing the music for a film with no people of color in it."
Brooks stuck by Q, and when the film premiered and Capote saw it, Capote apologized to Q. But Q has no kind words for Capote. There's swearing aplenty in this interview. Everything from Sinatra to Michael Jackson. A fascinating read.

Thanks, Valiant. Maybe, when the time comes you could kindly do some more prompting because that is gonna be one helluva interesting read.

Agreed, the magazine interview sounds intriguing. That "epic conversation", though, while not a complete bust, was pretty general. Still, it's fascinating to listen to Jones, whose career has indeed been epic, ad-lib. Khalid, not so much.
