Is this legit?First 2 minutes look like to be demo of "Home"Zimmer, Badelt and Djawadih t t p s://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAleXrIgBr8&feature=youtu.be hello I found this a while ago it is a rejected theme from the film lone ranger, score compos by hans zimmer. Probably hans didnt like this theme and decided not to use it, or maybe it was directors decision not to use. Anyway, enjoy it! I like very much the score how it is now but this ideas is interesting!<br>Just listen to "The Oil" for an example
The orchestral intro to "it's on again" (also outro of "You're that spider guy", just not with the percussion from TASM2) was re-used all over the Dunkirk score as well. The bass line for it is pretty obviously or very similarly re-purposed in a few places.Bill Conti gets an Oscar...so...i think Hans get a nominationThe reason I believe it partially depends on the piece's composition date is because of copyright laws. Arrival had to pay rights to use Richter's piece, just like if it had used a pop song, and I believe this played a big factor in its disqualification. Elgar's piece is public domain now, so it would be like if a score had included a Mozart sonata (extreme comparison).LOL @Macejko. I think Edmund is completely exhausted now. It'll take two to three days regain all the fluids he lost.@ James D<br><br>I don't disagree that Star Wars is the tip-of-the-iceberg when it comes to film music projects. However, you have to remember Powell has been in the game far longer than Giacchino has. I don't believe it has to do with how long you've been in the business, but if you're "sound" can carry the movie.
Powell's reception as composer of the new SW has been excellently welcomed! Wonderful!<br><br>------------------------------------------------------[<br><br>@Andrew<br><br>Let's face it: SW is still a very distant star for Balfe. Not just for him, for many others. Even John Powell. Achieving that score is an event in his career.Vced - balfes score to Home for example clearly shows he can write music like that .It's RCP's style and it's pretty much different of William's LOL"Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !"<br><br>John Powell isn't Hans Zimmer. <br><br>When has Zimmer (or Balfe for that matter) ever written a score that remotely sounds like Star Wars - who seriously thought that was going to happen LOL.<br><br>Much as I like Hans, this is a job for educated composers.<br><br>No way !<br><br>Hans was dining with Ron like 3 days before Ron was announced as director. But first, Powell was hired before Ron was in, and second I doubt Hans had 0,001 % interest in it, and probably rather pushed Ron towards JP !
This is great news! I really wanted Hans to do this but if not him then Powell is a great choice which I am sure Hans somehow was involved in. <br><br>I just hope this doesn't mean that Hans and Ron Howard won't work together in the future.Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !Edmund, be sure to tell us you're OK after all those cumshots.What shame Balfe didn't get the opportunity especially after GeniusThe official Star Wars website just confirmed that John Powell will score the untitled Han Solo movie! Since the day Ron Howard took over, I've anticipated Hans Zimmer to do it but John Powell is definitely next to him on the list. What an exciting news!

Holy shit. So I just listened to this album on YouTube and it's FANTASTIC. So much 80s cheeseball fun. And the first track even has the riff in it that would go on to become the First Born theme and then, later on, way way way down the road, 160 BPM from Angels & Demons. It's really incredible how distinct Hans' voice is even as early as 1983. As much as I enjoy the vocals, I'd kill to get instrumental versions of some of these songs.

Yo dude. Thanks for pointing this out. Listening to it now. Sounds excellent.


isildur2017-03-23 15:19:37
And in the Track 4 isn't that a bit of Inception?


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 16:46:17
Where do you listen to this guys? In my channel? I have the album in my channel.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-23 16:59:11
Yeah, Dimitris, it was your channel. Thanks man! :)


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 17:09:09

Oh yeah it's great, Moonlight In Vermont even has Beckett's Death from POTC 3 !


Anonymous2017-03-24 03:01:42
Moonlight also reminds me of parts of Chappie!

So that's where the original sources of one of the fragments of Beckett's theme for the third Pirates. Cool!

if for whatever reason zimmer , cann, griff decides not to release the spies album, there will forever be something of great importance missing in the music indistry! just the fact that is never was released does it even more interesting.there are still a lot of people around the world who would be very excited if it happened.it would make their career complete, and such great material should not be forgotten.pleeeeeeeeease!!!!!!

I was a great time and a pleasure to work with such a great team on the Helden Project.I cant wait for the album to get released.

I also heard for the first time the tracks "Holding On" and "Stranded" and was greatly impressed. They seem timeless at this present day.

I have a feeling that eventually the Spies album will be released. I guess it was meant to be. Hans, Warren and Zaine deserve this as a testament to their creativity, ambitions and friendship. The music contained in this album and Zaine's albums and singles was where it all started for Hans.

Vielen danke fur die Musik von drei Helden! Der Moment fur Spies ist heute und immer und immer!

Recently several videoclips and live-clips from Zaine Griff are added top YouTube and can be watched there. As you might know Hans Zimmer played in Zaine's band, was with him on stage at Zaine's final Grand Finale concert in The Venue London and Hans also arranged a lot of Zaine's music on zaine's second album Figures. Also two of the tracks from SPIES are added (as "audiomovie") on YouTube.

Are copies of this bootleg still available anywhere - as far as you know? Was it only released in 1984 on vinyl? Or maybe later (also) on CD? I think two tracks are missing from the complete album: the first track "--Mother Company"-- and the last instrumental track "--Eva"--, that should have come after "--Movies for Eva"--. I know that for a long time the Ultravox fanclub tried to convince Hans Zimmer to release the CD. Several times it was close to release -as I understood. But until now it is not there? And why was the album never released? It would have been released on their own label ZiCa records 001 (Zimmer/Cann), but it never was. Do you know the reason. Only the 7"-- and 12"-- of the Single "--Holding On"-- (with beautiful vocals of Zaine Griff and Linda Jardim) was released, with two songs on the B-side. But I think that was never really distributed. Beside that I think in the credits you should mention that Zaine Griff did the vocals on the most songs ( The Ball, Holding On, Stranded, Borderline. Movies for Eva) and also Hugo Vereker (Young &-- Scientific and - I think - My Killing Hand) and excellent female vocals of Linda Jardim on most of the tracks. I think it's worthwhile to mention that! One last question: who were the writers of the songs? Were they all written bij Zimmer/Cann or where some songs written by Zaine Griff? And what was the work done by Steve Rance - also mentioned large on the cover of "--Holding On"--. I thought he was technician or did he do other things in the Helden Project as well?
