What is best in life? How about getting just about every note of one of the greatest film scores ever written, as spread over three CD’s for 1982’s score to CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Ever since the 1982 CONAN THE BARBARIAN LP on MCA (also included here), just about every label from Varese to Milan has been trying to solve The Riddle of Steel with fits and starts of additional music, most recently with an admirably inclusive re-performance by Tadlow Records. But it’s Intrada that has gloriously mustered the full scope and lusty power of the Might that is Poledouris, his […]Read On »

CD Review: CONAN THE DESTROYER

If you’re a composer going into battle with one of the worst sequels of all time to protect the sanctity of your original masterwork, then you might as well hold your sword high, scream “Crom!” and produce such symphonic blood and thunder that the one thing to come out of the destruction will be your music. Such was the power of Basil Poledouris as he swung his mighty CONAN into DESTROYER‘s woeful death pit. The fact that Nic Raine and The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus are back nearly thirty years later to re-perform Poledouris’ gloriously manly score […]Read On »

While Conan O’Brien’s new TBS talk show CONAN has continued to impress in the ratings, while speaking to the press at yesterday’s TCA press tour, he reflected back on the whole Jay Leno/NBC situation in what should hopefully be the final word on the subject. In terms of Jay Leno (who we all know retired from THE TONIGHT SHOW, didn’t leave NBC and started a 10:00 pm talk show, that was canceled and then was responsible for Conan leaving THE TONIGHT SHOW and Jay taking over again), O’Brien says he doesn’t think much about it and has no interest in […]Read On »

At yesterday’s TCA session, George Lopez chatted about his TBS talk show LOPEZ TONIGHT, the actor-comedian-talk show host says he was happy to accommodate Conan O’Brien and his new talk show coming over to the network as his lead-in. In fact, he’s almost Zen about it. “I was replaced by cavemen on ABC,” says Lopez, referring to that network’s decision to cancel his sitcom THE GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW for a show about modern day cavemen. “To move an hour and bring in Conan – it’s nice to be at midnight and I was not unhappy. I’m here. He’s over there. […]Read On »
