Product Description

RAISE THE TITANIC was filmed in 1980, and although expensively mounted, at an estimated $40 Million, the production retrieved only $7 Million in receipts on its initial release. The dismal box-office response, fuelled by universally poor critical reaction, seems justified; the film, despite being ambitious and professional, failed to ignite the explosive elements of the original novel by Clive Cussler. However, composer JOHN BARRY's elegant music for RAISE THE TITANIC has cruised on to plaudits and kudos, his musical score recognised as a prime example of the film composer's art. OVER THE PAST 19 YEARS RAISE THE TITANIC HAS NOT ONLY BEEN ONE OF THE "MOST REQUESTED" OF JOHN BARRY'S UNRECORDED SCORES BUT ONE OF THE MOST REQUESTED SCORES OF ALL TIME! This release presents a newly recorded complete score from the film

I still remember the first time I saw RAISE THE TITANIC. What impressed me most about the entire film was its prologue. It was a montage of black & white photographs depicting the construction, the launching and the setting sail of the Titanic on its maiden voyage. The montage was accompanied by a hauntingly beautiful piece of music composed by John Barry. In this short yet effective composition John Barry captured the majesty of the Titanic, the romanticism of the sea and the mystique of Britain's maritime heritage in what I consider to be one of the best pieces of film scoring in motion picture history. John Barry's score seems more inspired by the actual tragedy of the Titanic and the unknown dangers of the cold Atlantic waters. Despite the shortcomings of the film, which I attribute to poor editing and not necessarily the script, John Barry's music remains focused on the ship and the sentimentality its tragedy holds for Richard Jordan and Alec Guinness. Jordan and Guinness seem to be the only two characters worth their weight as human beings in the film. Track 6 'All That's Left' is a haunting and beautiful piece of heartbreaking sentimentality in which Guinness reverently hands over to Jordan the flag he took from the sinking Titanic many years before. I have no complaints about this recording and I enjoy it very much. I think there is very little chance that John Barry will ever conduct a new recording of this score. There is also probably little chance that the original score from the actual film will ever be released. I think that Nic Raine and the City of Prague Philharmonic did a splendid job with this recording. Like most of their works, they have to grow on you. However, I believe this to be the finest recording of a score that they have ever issued. I highly recommend that you don't let this one slip away.

So close to 5 stars as maybe slightly repetitious in main theme (but isn't that the function of a theme anyway?). There are I feel close similarities with this and the 'Black Hole' soundtrack (never released on cd to date) with both being superior but terribly overlooked due to the lack of critical success of the films. Both were 'reasonable' films but fell short compared to the quality of the soundtrack and as a result an injustice by relationship was engendered. The fact that this music has been painfully rescored and re-recorded from scratch after the original recordings had being 'lost' should point towards the value of this music beyond that of pure commercial value.

As a fan of the film, I'm in a bit of a minority group, but whatever you may say about the film you can't ignore the sheer beauty of the soundtrack.

This is John Barry at his best. It's also a very good recording by the Prague Philharmonic. If I didn't know better, I'd have thought this was the original soundtrack (which apparently has been lost or destroyed).

Overall, I find this contains some of the most moving film music I've ever listened to. The main theme is extremely evocative - you can just imagine the grandeur of the great ship, with its oak panelling and glittering chandeliers. It's also tinged with a more than a little sadness at the terrible loss of life. The tracks covering the search for the ship have an uneasy sense of foreboding and danger, while the jaunty intro to "To Cornwall", with its sea shanty feel, reminds me of long forgotten summer holidays in the county.

If you like to listen to movie scores, this is a must have.

As with so often many of the films John Barry scored, the scores for the movies far outclass the actual movies themselves! Raise the titanic was a massive flop on release back in 1980, with a budget of over $40 million and a box office gross of only $12 million the film was quickly forgotten by critics and the public alike. Fortunately John Barry's excellent score was more cherished and remembered but with fans clamouring for a CD release of the score John Barry discovered the original master tapes were lost or destroyed and a CD release of the album looked unlikely. Then due to massive demand from Barry's fans and Barry himself! Silva Screen records stepped in and decided to pay for a complete re-scoring of Barry's original sheet music with Nic Raine ( Barry's right hand man in later years) conducting the city of prague philharmonic orchestra. Now some purists will rebuke this score just because it isn't the original but to be honest you'd never know the difference as Nic Raine made sure everything was perfect in replicating Barry's score, personally i can't tell the difference between Barry's original and this, it's that good! Also the album has been recorded in Dolby Surround and the audio quality is exceptional throughout.

John Barry's scores usually came in 2 styles - Very lush romantic majestic sweeping scores (out of africa,dances with wolves,somewhere in time,Scarlett letter etc) or dark brooding and suspense scores ( the Bond films,the black hole,starcrash,Game of death etc) Raise the titanic has elements of both. "The prelude" theme is a lovely piece reminiscent of Barry's romantic themes like Out of africa etc with the "main title" theme more suspensful and dark.
