Yeah, it's nice to hear part of it. Though my favorite cue is missing from the junkyard fight. But we did get "A New Home" out of it.

Part of me wishes he'd come back on and say "Hey my computer was broke, here's the rest of it!" But that's just wishful thinking.

By the way, it's nice to have a current thread where the people posting aren't nitpicking the classic movie to death nor acting like it's an old pair of favorite jeans that has to be replaced...

It really is strange. He was incredibly cool sharing what he did, but then he went completely off the grid. He probably could have made a ton of cash selling a few copies on eBay beforehand. Hopefully Roseangelo got her money back on the deal. He tried to get me to buy the discs for a few hundred bucks.

Whoah! That has shady written all over it.

Maybe a dumb idea but could a talented composer recreate the tracks from scratch? I saw a guy's video on YouTube where he recreated the campfire scene music score. It sounded very synthesized but it was a nice attempt.

d_osborn 01-21-2017 03:04 AM

I went back and looked at the PMs, I was mixed up. Apologies! My memory sucks. He paid a pretty good chunk for the material, though-- $250. He wanted me to make an offer. This was the same time that Roseangelo bought the CD. He mentioned making duplicates, as well.

Ordinarily I wouldn't just go posting something that someone sent in a PM, but in this case, he ripped off one of the Dromers. Not cool! Here's the full track list. I'm pretty sure he said he did the cover design. Not sure about the track names.

Oh, the music could totally be covered and recorded, but eh-- I'm hoping for the real deal.

"A Way Out" is probably the track I am looking for. If I remember correctly, it starts off with the "New Home" motif then transcends into a really lively action cue when Raph says something like "Step up to the bar, boys!"

Sabacooza 01-21-2017 10:48 AM

Man, this is so depressing knowing that we could've got the music score from the 3rd movie and all the other tracks we missed from SotO. Why do people wave this **** in your face only to never release it? I'll never understand it. They probably get off on doing that kind of stuff.

TheSkeletonMan939 01-21-2017 10:52 AM

One possibility is that this guy did intend to give the scores to anyone who paid.
But then he realized that
a) One person would end up buying it and sharing it for free with everyone else
b) He might get in trouble with his "superior" (i.e. the person who gave him the score in the first place)

As I said before... there are a lot of film music diehards who do all sorts of sneaky sh!t for money and music.

Sabacooza 01-21-2017 11:07 AM

That's probably what happened. Still, I hope we get all this stuff soon.

MathUser 01-21-2017 01:11 PM

Finally, I can listen to the iconic intro track. Thanks for upping this.

Yeah that's annoying. I wonder if he'll put the rest of the music up for sale. Stupid though just to leak a bit of music.

That's my favourite bit of music too! It ends with Tokka or Rahzar jumping into the manhole with Mike tickling his feet.

i just spoke to varese today and told them they should release the scores to tmnt 1-3 by john du prez and they told me great suggestion we'll pass it along and let you know when we release them.

TheSkeletonMan939 03-28-2017 04:26 PM

That's what they feel obligated to say to everyone who has a "suggestion".

at478 03-28-2017 04:28 PM

yep unfortunately it feels like a robot :(

sgtfbomb 03-28-2017 10:50 PM

For me, La La Land delivers. They give decent quantities for these releases. I feel like with Varese, these would be limited to 1500 or 2000. LLL would most likely give them a reasonable 3000. Intrada would probably low ball it, but they have a deal where they can press more if it sells out, which angered a lot of collector types because "snarf snarf, the little number on the back means nothing now." That's why I can't stand collector types. They care about what it looks like on the shelf and its monetary value. Forget that. I just want the music, man.

soon my friend hopefully soon

Not necessarily, if I'm lucky La-La-Land come back to me with "I don't see why not if enough people want it".

La La Land is a little more down to earth with its fanbase. Intraday as well, to a degree. Varese has been in the soundtrack game for a very long time. They are somewhat casual on their Facebook page sometimes, but with suggestions, they still give you the blandly written blanket answers that sound like they come from robots.

4-LP vinyl release, FLAC file download, original unit photography for the jacket-- MAKE IT SO!!!!

The question is, "DO enough people want it?" Very hard to gauge sometimes. Every project is a gamble unless it's something like John Williams.
