I gave up on waiting for Intrada to release this. The re-recording does fine for me. I appreciate the love they have in designing the jackets, linear notes, etc. But it has to sound pretty darn good for me to replace the Tadlow release.

Wow, this "impending" release definitely fell by the wayside. I get that planned projects fall through or run into problems (the labels have stated before that they hesitate to jump the gun - so to speak - and announce something before it's a for sure thing) but it would be nice if we could get some kind of official word or announcement from Intrada as to what is causing the delay. I would guess it's not good news, considering we are going on...what? 9 years since the announcement?

I have a feeling (which means nothing) that it's close. I imagined that Intrada felt that too when they repressed more copies of Conan so that they could have both for folks to pick up when Destroyer came out. But again I could be wrong. Regardless I'm looking forward to an announcement. smile

Imagine how annoying it must be for Intrada! smile

I’m sure it’s still coming eventually, judging from the composer names posts Roger was making last year...

I'll say first that I have zero insider knowledge -- but with thought, everyone should find it obvious that Intrada must be unhappy and frustrated about whatever the CONAN situation is. The label is completely reliant on licensors as their primary partners, right? In announcing the "impending" release so long ago, they plainly never suspected whatever snags have caused this long delay.

But since we also have been told what kind of licensor approvals must be sought (and patiently awaited) for each release, no one should expect a detailed public explanation for whatever the holdup turned out to be. Likely not within the booklet notes (unless it's an unexpected technical issue), and probably not on these forums either. Fingerpointing toward a studio or licensor would only guarantee less future access to other titles. Doing so in advance might kill a release altogether -- and by this point, Intrada must be more eager to see this finally issued than any of its customers would be!

Both conan 1 & 2 are from mca universal,conan 1 is available, so why not conan 2? What is the difference with conan 2 for the rights?

I don't necessarily disagree with what you've said but it wouldn't be terribly difficult for an official update from Intrada. They could easily (and delicately) provide an explanation without "finger pointing" or giving the perception of laying blame at someone else's feet.

Do they owe us an explanation? Absolutely not. But I don't think wanting to know the reasons for a 9-year delay is asking for too much, as long as we ask in a polite way.

Could be Intrada are adding the Sword & Sorcery score as well and that could be the hold up. U likely we’ll ever know for sure, but hopefully it is still coming.

The Tadlow release will be first choice for this score on purely musical terms no matter what and if Intrada releases any original recording, as the original recording is just not that good. The release of the original score will be for those who really have an attachment to the score as it is in the movie and as a historical recording. When it comes to "pretty sound" or listening enjoyment on its own terms, I don't see how that recording could ever "replace" Tadlow's recording.
Basil Poledouris himself did not particularly like the way the original soundtrack recording turned out and it was not anywhere near to his satisfaction.
