The first Dot 2 LP set says mono. The second Dot 2 LP set says it's newly recorded for Dot in stereo.


Forgot, PFK? I never even knew about the UA album. (Single-disc and smaller orchestra?) I've treasured the Dot label's stereo release since 1972, when I was delighted to find a still-sealed copy of it. But I've been "ready to go" for the special COMMANDMENTS set since Doug let us know it was in the pipeline, since I have quietly but really wanted those film recordings. When its time comes, I'm even looking forward to what might be a fabulous history related in a spectacular booklet -- or maybe even deluxe scrolls!

But it's still possible that Monday's announcement will be a lavish edition of some unrelated project, so I'd better resume my wait-to-see mode. I'm holding some money aside, Roger, so meet me halfway on this!

I'd like to think our discussion about it possibly being "The Ten Commandments" would have been blocked by a statement saying otherwise by now.

Believe it or not Steven, in 1966 I bought the UA LP first, played it a lot, then bought the 2 LP Dot set!
So I was used to the UA LP first. It's only 27 minutes with 10 bands of music. It's a smaller orchestra but was conducted with great vigor by Elmer. I like it a lot. Hopefully this will be in the Intrada box of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

I think it was recorded in the Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood. Elmer did other re-recordings there too, many for UA Records like THE GREAT ESCAPE, THE SCALPHUNTERS, HAWAII, RETURN OF THE SEVEN/MAGNIFICENT 7 etc. Waxman did the UA LP to TARAS BULBA there, etc. I think the recording equipment was excellent for the 1960s, smaller orchestras were used. Back in the 60s it was cheaper to re-record a score than to pay the high re-use fees etc.

I also love that you used the original cover art from those three vinyl albums.

And here comes the bad news. April Fools!! No, I jest. The release is real. But I just heard from the plant this morning that the slip case with the fancy gold foil lettering for the title will take an extra TWO WEEKS. So, I apologize for the late breaking disappointing news, but I will try to give out additional info to help us all get through two more weeks of waiting.

In the meantime, not nearly as epic we do have another release to put in its place. This one is an oddball because it's a reissue of a title still in print in our catalog. But Doug and I both felt something things needed to be changed. So here you go.

Roger, perhaps it makes sense to re-title this thread to say "September 6", and start a different thread for the reissue coming August 23rd?

PFK, at the risk of being pedantic (and in no way wishing to de-rail this thread!), the album for Return of the Seven was recorded at the (now long defunct) CTS Studio at Bayswater in London...

This certainly looks like an interesting release. Wonder what the oddball release will be?
