I'm taking from your edit to the "King of Pride Rock" page that you've purchased the Legacy Collection. I'm planning to order it sometime soon, but if you do have the album, are the scores mostly the same as the ones we have listed now? I'm just wondering if we can just rename the pages or if they're arranged differently.
I do have it, yes. The arrangements for almost all of the tracks is remarkedly different, especially for "Stampede" and "The Rightful King" (the former uses real brass - the sessions used the demo brass, and the latter uses real choir which actually sings in Swahili as Simba rises to Pride Rock as opposed to the 'Ahh' the previous leak and the album has)
That's a tough question to answer in a single word. The material is thematically the same: we even get the insert for "We Are Connected" that the previous leaks don't have. The previous leaks are all material that was mixed from the original recording stems by Jay Rifkin, and I'm told Zimmer hated those mixes, so when it came to this release, he pulled the original master tapes and passed the mixing over to Alan Meyerson, who has been mixing Zimmer's scores for a long time now. The result is, for want of a better phrase, what Zimmer actually intended the score to sound like, whereas the Rifkin mixes are not, and TBH, now sound somewhat flat as a result. So, yes, the material is the same, the mix is not.
Huh, so I guess we can just make new pages and keep up the old ones. I'll be interested to see what they sound like. And by the insert for "We Are Connected," are you referring to the little flute solo when Simba enters the den?
Okay, last question. The track listing according to Amazon seems to have a few typos (such as "Prideland" and "We Gotta Bone to Pick You"). Is the actual track listing different from the Amazon-provided one?
Hey, I think we had a slight misunderstanding about the cut scores. I think we should make articles for both versions of the scores, since we have two separate bootlegs with corresponding mp3s. We can simply keep the old articles the same and create new ones for the bootleg you've produced.
That's up to you, but given it's the same material (just differeing quality), I personally view it as a tad redundant in including the old ones, and a trite bit confusing given that there are at least two bootlegs prior to the March leak that are essentially just re-edits of the original 21-track bootleg. I might remark I sinmply moved the majority of articles rather than writing anew, so it should be a simple matter of just duplicating the old articles from the page histories.
I guess, but that is a fan reorganization (actually, a comment on the page alludes to the fact that the admin always do this sort of thing). BTW, that last track "Mufasa's Death (Alternate)" is not an alternate, it's just the cue without the chase ending.
I didn't follow the track listing perfectly (since there were grammatical errors and such), but I just reorganized the titles to look a little more professional, guided along by the track listing on the site.
Actually, I think I changed the information in the infoboxes when I first moved the articles: the "Title" heading on each article should read as their original cue names at this moment (as will all other references in the article - those will need to be changed too). The cue titles and numbers are in the main article too under "Recording Information/Cue List".
Hello Ggctuk! Honeyfur has told me that she's having account issuses and is having Wikia Central sort it out. She said she is not sure on how long it will be till the problem is fixed. She asked me to inform you that you may create new articles for the Cut Scores.
The reference is the ASCAP database, but it does not leave behind a URL (exactly like the references used for name meanings here, you have to type it in specifically). Go here: https://www.ascap.com/Home/ace-title-search/index.aspx and type in "lion king". All relevant entries are either labelled by their cue name or simply as "Lion King cues" (although most named thus list the cue names as alternative names). It also comes up with entries for both Lion King II and Lion King 1 1/2, but they have no other names associated with them.
