You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on soundtrack.net somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premierI am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze Rozman
Mondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund. No info yet on if they plan to fix it. :-/Mine arrived today and is definitely sped up.LOL klaus badelt hardly composed pirates 1You know what? I love the booklet credits! Klaus Badelt is the same guy who scored Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.Thanks Hybrid soldier for the good news<br>I can't wait to see the documental film and hear the score of lorne balfe & hans zimmer.
A score will be released.<br><br>You can always count on Lorne for that. It's in the works.What was the last Zimmer documentary score that they released outside of BBC? <br><br>I am still waiting for The Great Bear Rainforest.I hope they can the soundtrack release for "Rebuilding Paradise" composed by Hans zimmer & Lorne balfe, including an original song for the film. I hope there is a possibility that they will release the score.How to get this at all?Any news about Rebuilding Paradise soundtrack?
@Hybrid:<br>Any news about a release for Ron Howard "Rebuilding Paradise" soundtrack by Hans ans Lorne. The documentary airing today. Any info will be much Appreciated.Well I take that part of it back and stand corrected. I have to say the editing choice I think was the right call but won't elaborate here.  I hope we get more Last Samurai someday.  Qobuz at least sells the CD quality version digitally for now.I sent Mondo an e-mail as well. Its definitely sped up.<br>yes i know :/The website obviously needs a redesign and a merchandise section would be nice.

So the film is in theaters (again), and it is doing remarkably well (considering it is a re-release). This is the third time this movie is making its way to the top of the charts, yet even now there is no proper score release. Whatever happened to that "expanded Lion King" album that Hans Zimmer promised? I thought he said "one of these days [he] will be good; [he] will ask Disney 'hey let's do an expanded Lion King score', and [Disney] will say yes."? I remember he said the score is not expensive to release, and he even claimed he is looking Lion King his tapes up, and he is finding things no one has ever heard, etc, etc.

So. Why is it that the newly announced Lion King Deluxe Edition album is once again a song collection? How is it that everything is getting an expanded release of some sort (most of which don't even need one), but this one is still a no-go? I am sure Mr. Zimmer can make it happen if he really wants to. But then again it appears that he is so indifferent about his fans. Oh brother...

supporting you in every phrase you've written.
a shame we haven't something until now. and people moaning about inception and transformers, while these beauties haven't got any love since years.

Well said. I recently purchased the new DVD and it was like falling in love all over again with the score. Fingers crossed that the new Intrada/Disney collaboration might finally do this masterpiece the justice that it's been denied since 17 years. And there couldn't be a better opportunity to coincide it with than the diamond edition Blu-ray release!

> About orchestra

I've never seen any particular name of the orchestra on TLK, but according to the end credits, the music was recorded at:
MEDIA VENTURES (USA), TODD A-O SCORING (USA), ANGEL STUDIOS (UK), BOP STUDIOS (South Africa)
http://www.lionking.org/endcredits.html

And according to DVD commentary the chorus was a mix of London chorus & South African choir.
The songs of voice actors were probably recorded in the US & UK.
Plus, most Disney scores are recorded in America, so I think the orchestra was recorded only in the US (Todd A-O), with musicians of Hollywood, as Ravi said.

I think the purely orchestral material was recorded in the US, so it should be the Hollywood Symphonic Orchestra. The material featuring both African choir and orchestra (both score and the underscore for the songs) was recorded in South Africa and UK so LSO could be the one in UK.

No doubt this is the best score of Hans Zimmer, and personaly i think it is the most beautiful and dramatic music ever written!

Oah, "This Land" is so much more than life, it is, oh, something so great. Plenty o' feelings, happiness, sorrow, strength and honor, bloody hell, perfect! Thanks, Hans!
Intro of Be Prepared sounds like Nightwish, hmm...

Honestly, I don't see much difference between this CD and the '94 one. At first, I was hoping that it will contain more score tracks than the first CD but, instead, it contains two new tracks which are not very special. So, I don't think that it is greater than the first one. I like the artwork on this one and that's all. So, if they want to release a real Special Edition, then they should add more score tracks and, why not, release a special edition on double CD because a movie with music like this really deserves to be in any music fan collection. I don't say that this CD is a waste of money but, like I said before, it's not very special. So, think twice if you have to choose between this and the '94 one. This is my advice.

I just want to tell you - that would mean, you can download the whole CD without paying anything. That is not okay! Hans Zimmer also has to earn money. Don't be so selfish.
I love your music, Hans Zimmer!
