From Roger...

Okay, I know rumors started on this. Not sure where it started (AICN perhaps?), but given the number of requests we get for clarity, I thought I would do one posting for my own sanity. Yes, we are restoring and releasing both CONAN THE BARBARIAN and CONAN THE DESTROYER. Yes, the rumors that the masters were missing were false. They were there...24-track and 4-track units in pristine condition and complete, sitting right where we expected them to be at Universal. We transferred everything...the sound is stunning. Simply stunning. Going back to the 24-track is going to reveal a detail and ferocity on both scores you just haven't heard before. Basil often went for a muscular, powerhouse over the top performance to match unrivaled visuals and got it in a way no big orchestral score had quite achieved up to that point. Remember the feeling when you heard these scores for the first time? You'll feel it again! Fans of these scores should be ready to have their socks knocked off.

BLIMEY!!!!

Okay, the fact that Poledouris was (apparently) very unhappy with the orchestra's performance on both original recordings notwithstanding, this is incredibly exciting news!!!!!

Can't wait!!!!

The original tracks of both films and a rerecording of DESTROYER on the way!

It's a damn good time to be a Poledouris fan.

I'll probably pick up both, but I'm more excited about the re-recording of Destroyer.

No "apparently" about.


He told me DIRECTLY in PERSON and ON THE RECORD.

He was very unhappy with the performance of DESTROYER, less so with BARBARIAN.

No doubt about it.

Taking that into account, these are still the film recordings and, thus, definitive, warts and all. I don't get excited by much these days, but this has got me genuinely stoked!!!
