The Adventures of Conan - Basil Poledouris


Here's a quick addition to the blog -- Basil Poledouris' The Adventures of Conan: Sword And Sorcery Spectacular, music the composer wrote for a live-action stage show at Universal Studios, Hollywood in the early 1980s.

Running just over sixteen-and-a-half minutes, Poledouris evokes the spirit of his Conan The Barbarian score without (sadly) explicitly quoting any themes from that score. Recorded in London with the "London Studio Symphony Orchestra and Voices", the results are a little less epic than Barbarian, but worth a download/listen, considering how little we hear from Poledouris these days.

Also included on the promotional disc, released by Supertracks in 2000, is the cheese y stage show audio track. Total time of the disc is 24:35.

Sorry, file deleted!
