Another soundtrack that deserves a re-release as the expanded edition is Orca. Also known as Orca...Killer Whale. Ennio Morricone did a another brilliant job with this score.

I really like that one as well. From what I understand, most Morricone fans are really fond of it, too. What a gorgeous theme!

For one reason or other, and I suspect licensing as usual, the vocal version of the main theme which plays over the end credits, didn't make it onto the previous CD release. I sure was fond of it when I first saw the film at 13 years old. I don't recall much else unreleased but I'd definitely be happy to revisit this score.

Licensing was definitely the problem all the way around. Musician fees and whatnot got bypassed several times over in Japan. Orca was never "officially" produced, hence the album appeared only via the TAM label in Japan. Similar situations happened with LPs for Meteor (Laurence Rosenthal), The Domino Principle (Billy Goldenberg), Somebody Killed Her Husband (Alex North), Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea (Johnny Mandel), Follow Me (John Barry) and others from that mid to late-seventies period. --Doug

Ahh, I can post again. Forum seemed to have some technical issues over the last 48 hours.

Doug's post here is interesting given the Orca issue that has arisen with Music Box's release recently. Looks like some people will get a very limited collector's item and a widespread release looks very unlikely.

What a perfect little album that is.

There's also the Jaguar Lives! and Grizzly albums.

Music Box indicated in the liner notes that the original master tapes for Orca can't be located. Just the TAM album master. I felt fortunate to grab the CD as it sold out in no time flat.
