Posts from Dooley in thread „Sands Of Iwo Jima (1949)“

    Finally got round to listening to the new CD release of Sands of Iwo Jima.
    Unfortunately the source material seems to be from the film and it is quite poor.
    Obviously in mono and very flat. Shame but not anything they could do more with the original material.
    It'd be great to have a re-recording similar to the fantastic 3 disc Alamo release.

    Here's the cd track listing. It looks like its already sold out!

    Just a heads up if anyone is interested. The score to Sands of Iwo Jima has been remastered and released on Limited edition CD. Doubled up with my favourite Island in the Sky!
