Roger from Intrada mentioned that they hope to release an Elfman score this year.
Any ideas or hopes? Nightbreed is top of my expanded score wishlist now that Dolores Claiborne has been released – A Simple Plan, too, but that seems much more unlikely.
A proper release of A Family Man would be great.February 27, 2021 at 1:34 am #99426rkeaveneyKeymaster
Sorry that thread is like 13 pages. Did I miss the post from Roger about there being an Elfman title?
I imagine someone is going to do MIDNIGHT RUN at some point. Intrada has done EDWARD and DICK TRACY. FLUBBER perhaps? 🙂July 6, 2021 at 7:51 pm #99600
Coming in a few weeks!
Is it too much to hope for Woman in the Window?July 12, 2021 at 3:04 pm #99601
It won’t be WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, but it’s one of Elfman’s biggest and best scores… 🙂July 13, 2021 at 5:35 am #99602
Sommersby?July 13, 2021 at 3:19 pm #99603lonzoeParticipant
Interesting. Nightbreed? Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas? Sleepy Hollow? Hulk? Big Fish?July 14, 2021 at 7:36 pm #99604
My first thought was Spider-ManJuly 16, 2021 at 12:01 pm #99605
I’ve heard it could be one of those!

Title revealed…July 23, 2021 at 7:23 am #99611DannyBikerParticipant
Wow nice and unexpected. And 4 CDs !
I know there were recording sessions going around but it’s always nice to have an editorial work for that amount of music. Ready to order !July 23, 2021 at 9:03 am #99612
Could we actually get the actual film version of the main titles? Do I dare to dream?July 26, 2021 at 11:03 pm #99613July 27, 2021 at 12:56 am #99614
Needless to say, I’ve ordered this 🙂
Here are some of the (direct links to) samples from Intrada:
“Main Titles (Original)” – http://www.intrada.com/sound/SlEEpy_06.mp3
“The Church Battle (Alternate) – http://www.intrada.com/sound/SlEEpy_23.mp3
“The Chase/The Final Confrontation (Version #1); A New Day! (Original)” – http://www.intrada.com/sound/SlEEpy_09.mp3July 27, 2021 at 8:42 am #99615
I’m assuming that all the ‘original’ cues are for an earlier cut of the movieAugust 5, 2021 at 5:25 am #99617
I got mine in the mail already! Looking forward to revisiting this one!August 6, 2021 at 7:59 pm #99619
I’m broke, so I’m having to wait until next payday to order, but I’m pleased to hear that Elfman was involved with this release (he produced it and contributed to the liner notes)
Would’ve loved for him to have contributed to the Mission: Impossible, Dolores Claiborne and Darkman releases (what a set of scores all within a few months), but he’s a busy manAugust 13, 2021 at 9:31 am #99625DannyBikerParticipant
FYI, the first batch has issues and Intrada will have to repress CD 1. So you can’t buy it from them at the moment, they’ll put it back on sale when they have it fixed. If you were holding off to buy it, hold a little longer to get the new version… 🙂August 13, 2021 at 7:10 pm #99631lonzoeParticipant
Yep! That’s why I try to wait a few months before I purchase these expanded remastered albums from these specialty labels in case of technical issues or errors.August 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm #99633
What was the issue with CD 1?August 16, 2021 at 4:34 pm #99635
The original Hollywood Records album was mastered with gapless playback, but the Intrada disc 1, which is a dupe of the HR master, has .2 sec blank gapes between tracks. It’s something you might only hear through headphones, but Intrada has offered to redo disc 1 and mail out copies to those who purchased through them.August 19, 2021 at 12:44 pm #99636
Thanks Ryan. Now that you point out the issue, I do notice the gap.September 3, 2021 at 5:59 pm #996379fingeredElfParticipant
Anyone get their replacement disc yet?September 5, 2021 at 9:25 pm #99638
NopeSeptember 5, 2021 at 10:15 pm #996399fingeredElfParticipant
The day I wrote that mine arrived.September 26, 2021 at 3:53 pm #99652
What a treasure trove this release is!
I’ve definitely overplayed this score (this was probably my favourite score for a good few years), and now I feel like I’m rediscovering it.
On top of the avalanche of extra material (much of which is legitimately great – I normally listen to that stuff once or twice and then forget about it), the sound quality is so much better than the previous release, which could sometimes be a bit overbearing. Like with Planet of the Apes, the quieter cues really improve the listening experience.
