By the way, although probably everybody here knows this link already, I think it's interesting because it put the right titles on the unreleased BR tracks:

If this direct link doesn't work, search PAPATHANASSIOU EVANGHELOS from http://www.bmi.com

Wow. Interesting. Unless I'm mistaken, there seems to be a lot of titles for unused cues ("Oriental Music on Television", "Zhora Tries To Kill Deckard"), and there also seems to be fragments of "Wounded Animals" scattered about ("Outside The Building", "Where Are You Going"). Perhaps those fragments were abandoned or just combined into the longer track "Wounded Animals". And is "Chinatown Club" referring to both sets of club music, or just the part with Demis Roussos's vocals? So many questions...

 

Anyhow, looking forward to your update, focuspuller!

***The Official ANGRYSVN UNAUTHORIZED COLLECTION*** Release Thread
Time

I own the revised 2004 version of Lucas's "THX 1138" on DVD, but I've always wanted to watch the original unaltered cut, and without an LD player, that's pretty much left me in the dust...until I discovered this wonderful forum. :)

Therefore, I am kindly requesting if anyone could possibly send me a DVD copy of the original version?

Do let me know if you can. Thanks!

TheInfiniteIconZ. I would prefer that any details or discussions about BR bootlegs outside of the realm of this project be taken elsewhere. That includes incouraging PMs about it on this thread. Part of the point of this project is to do away with any and all such bootlegs (bieng sold or otherwise). If anyone wants to find these bootlegs by all means feel free, there are MANY sites to explore for that. But please don't bring it here.

Sorry to sound like a policeman. You understand where I'm coming from. And thank you for your support. 

 

 I'm sorry, I only meant to point BingoWings in the right direction with my PM, and I can most certainly empathize with your desire to rid the BR fan community of cheapened or derisive bootlegs.

All I'm going to say in this matter is that this particular boot was an exception to the "bad bootleg" stereotype, as it was extremely rare and could not be found on any sites, and my only intention was to help out a fellow score fan, but if you feel that I have slighted the integrity of your restoration, then my apologies.

I still hope that all goes well with your family and the upcoming project, and you know you have all of my best wishes and support. :)

Hi everyone.

 

I'm in a slightly better place since last we spoke (for now). I've also had a little time to work on the project so I will have something to report very soon.

I has also been toying with the idea of giving out some kind of "raw release" or "pre-release" as a way of getting this out faster. This would obviously be a kind of "work print" followed by a more polished final version down the road. I will let you know what I decide. Until then, stay tuned.

It's great to have you back, focuspuller! Glad to hear that you're pulling through.

I would welcome the notion of an early prototype of your final product, as I've been absolutely salivating in ancipation for this complete collection for a while now.

But whatever your decision, I'm glad that we'll all be able to soon hear all the hard work and care you've dedicated to this collection :)

Hello focuspuller,

 

This may be a long shot, but in doing research for my site, I stumbled upon the track listing for a very rare BR bootleg called Cliffhanger and Radio Plays, and apparently one of the tracks ("Stalking Pris") just might contain the music cue in its clean entirety for when Deckard walks up the stairs to J.F. Sebastian's apartment.

 

Just wanted to give you a heads-up, in case you missed it.

 

Hmm, as a matter of fact, I would be interested in getting this bootleg too...  ;-)

Hey focuspuller,

Just wanted to point out that the version of "Unveiled Twinkling Space" presented on the BR Trilogy is NOT the version heard in the film (due to a 5% pitch difference), so in case you were using that cue for your Complete Collection, I just wanted to let you know that you will have to lower the pitch by 5% (unless you wanted it in PAL quality).

No, it's Taffy's as in the music played in Taffy Lewis' bar. It comes on after Deckard hangs up the phone.

 

 

I see which one you're talking about.

Just for the record, there are two source cues used in Taffy Lewis's bar, one has vocals courtesy of Demis Roussos (heard when Deckard first enters the club), and the other does not (heard when Deckard is hung up on the phone).

I rather like the second one, wish we had a complete clean ending for it.

Thanks for your reply, focuspuller. I was aware that the "Unicorn" cue was also used for the film 'Antarctica', albeit in a different fashion.

While the film had the familiar mix of the eletronic "hunting horn" sound with the atonal chorus (which is the version presented on countless bootlegs), the BR DVD featurettes had the "hunting horn" in a previously unheard segment by itself (i.e. the start of the "Beyond the Window" doc) as well as the atonal chorus in another music segment by itself (approx. the 3 min.-mark in the "Eye of the Storm"doc). So when I saw how extended your version was, I naturally assumed it would come from at least one ofthese sources I mentioned. But I guess I'll have to wait until the final result to see if I'm right or wrong. Can't wait to hear what you're cooking for us!

Hello all,

I may be a new member to this forum but I'm just as hungry for a truly complete BR soundtrack as the rest of you. :)

focuspuller, I  sincerely applaud and congratulate the time and effort you're putting into this project, as it really, really means a lot to us.

I also have a question: did you somehow manage to get the extended music for your "Unicorn" cue from the BR DVD documentaries? 'Cause I've been DYING to hear that cue in its entirety, and it sucks that it's only available in mono format behind all the interview dialog on the DVD.

Keep up the great work!
