New Conan Soundtracks on the way

Don't know if anyone is interested in movie soundtrack releases like I am, but Intrada has just announced that they're going to release the complete scores to both Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer!

:eek

From Intrada's official forum.

Roger Feigelson - 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.
 
I used to listen to "The Anvil of Crom" every morning as I got dressed for school. Even my John Wayne-esque dad popped his head in one day and said, "Boy, that Star Wars music really gets you pumped up, doesn't it?"

I gave him credit for trying. :lol
 
The greatest score ever made.
Some say it was a secret left by the gods, but Poledouris was not a god, just a man.
We must learn it's riddle, the riddle of the soundtrack of Conan!
How could a mere sword and sworcery film hold the key to the greatest
film score ever made!?

My favorite film score of all time!
 
What previous releases? The album version? That wasn't complete. The re-recordings? Complete, but not the actual score used for the film.

He's probably talking about the previous release from Varese records in 1992.
This is the version I own on cd. It includes 16 tracks (including 20 minutes of previously inreleased music). No voice over during Anvil of Crom.
This is what I listen to on my IPhone when I'm frustrated at work.
My favorite tracks are Anvil of Crom and The Kitchen/orgy.

Darth, the Varese version of the soundtrack doesn't have the voice over because it doesn't include the "prologue" portion that featured Mako's voice over. It just starts with the forging of the sword.

Yes, I was just pointing out that the Verese version doesn't have a voice over so people would be clear on which cd it was.
Btw thanks for the heads up on this info. I'm definitely getting this.
 
If it is 'too' different, then I'm not gonna like it. Like the remastered Megadeth cd's. Yuck!

No problem. I should mention that the Nic Raine re-recordings did include the opening prologue piece that leads into the Anvil of Crom without any voice over work. I'm hoping this will be the same case for the new Intrada release. I loath it when they leave the dialogue and/or voice overs in the soundtrack release.

DARN YOU TRON LEGACY & STAR TREK II EXPANDED RELEASE!!!
