• New Release: Jerry Goldsmith's GHOST AND THE DARKNESS, THE (2CD) by INTRADA!!!

    4 maj 2015, 21:22 av wOoDy__


    Wow! Spectacular 2-CD presentation showcases Jerry Goldsmith at his most exciting, evocative best. Intense, flavorful, stirring! The Ghost And The Darkness soundtrack is all that and more. Stephen Hopkins directs Michael Douglas, Val Kilmer with famed screenwriter William Goldman on board to chronicle riveting true story of 1898 British bridge-building site in Tsavo region of Kenya turned terrifying nightmare, courtesy two ferocious man-eating lions that claimed more than one hundred lives - apparently for sport. Terror on an epic scale, presented by Paramount Pictures and Constellation Films. Described to composer as Lawrence Of Arabia meets Jaws, Jerry Goldsmith anchored his melodies in feel of classic David Lean epics, then crossed them with some of his most ferocious low brass action motifs ever. The result is a massive work both richly melodic, frighteningly aggressive. Original 1996 Hollywood label album offered just 12 selections from Goldsmith's score plus five African vocals by The Worldbeaters under George Acogny's direction. Now premiering in this packed 2-CD set are all of Goldsmith's cues, including 70-minutes of score appearing in the film plus wealth of alternates assembled by Goldsmith and engineer Bruce Botnick to accommodate post production changes. Numerous cues were recorded, then re-recorded, then worked again with complex layers of native voice, electronics, percussion over orchestra to yield still further revisions. Voices in some cues were hushed and subdued under the orchestra, then revisited to yield voices with startling emphasis and clarity. Sometimes layers of electronics were recorded anew to add further density, other times they were peeled away to create leaner takes. Changes are both subtle, profound - and all of them appear in this generous set! Some 100 minutes of incredible music are followed by the original album release in its entirety, which interestingly features yet further altered mixes and performances of nearly every scoring cue, resulting in more than two hours total of epic Goldsmith. Previously unreleased sequences abound. Highlights include splendor and excitement of "Over There", "One Shot", "First Kill", riveting action of "John's Nightmare", "First Kill", harrowing suspense of "The Trap", "The Cave" and many others. Major spotlight goes to complete nearly 10-minute finale of score that climaxes with premiere release of Goldsmith's "revised" coda featuring resounding fortissimo major chords that play just prior to end credit crawl. A magnificent, triumphant finish! Entire 2-CD set presented in dynamic stereo from original digital scoring session mixes made by Bruce Botnick. Notes by Jeff Bond plus vivid graphic design by Joe Sikoryak complete this essential addition to any Goldsmith library. One of the composer's finest! Jerry Goldsmith conducts National Philharmonic Orchestra. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD set available while quantities and interest remain!

    Wow! World premiere of complete Jerry Goldsmith score for Frank Marshall film from Micheal Chrichton thriller with Laura Linney, Dylan Walsh. Original album produced by Goldsmith only featured about 23 minutes of score plus ten minutes of admittedly dynamic African choral material. But that left out virtually half of magnificent score. Goldsmith's approach to thriller offers some of his most riveting action music of the nineties. Intrada presentation includes everything composer recorded, including two versions of rich "Deep Jungle", in which version recorded specifically for album deleted tense snake sequence. Standing out in new tracks are thrilling action cues: powerful Rambo style "Meet Monroe Kelly" airport escape cue, intense "Help Me" where Tim Curry meets his violent end. Other new cues include two versions of mysterious "The Ghost Tribe", "Meet Amy" sequence with alternating thrills, tenderness. Alternates plus "Villagers Chant" written by James Newton Howard & Lebo M complete 62-minute program. Entire score mastered from original digital two-track session masters, vaulted at Paramount, stunningly recorded, mixed by Bruce Botnick. Packaging features both original Epic Soundtrax label album cover plus exciting "flipper" cover. Jerry Goldsmith conducts.

    At last! Long-awaited world premiere complete presentation of endearingly popular Academy Award-nominated score by Jerry Goldsmith to endearingly popular sports drama starring Gene Hackman, directed by David Anspaugh, written by Angelo Pizzo. Goldsmith score originates on wonderful LP with duration of 39 minutes but never appears on CD in U.S. International releases (some under U.K. title Best Shot) all have same contents as original LP. Goldsmith emphasizes rousing basketball music but, interestingly, omits several more serious ideas from his album, including one important theme represented only in this new complete version. Titled "No More Basketball", saddened cue offers haunting tune for woodwinds, strings and actually appears twice in finished film. Another important new cue is "Someone I Knew", featuring serious solo line for cello over strings as Coach Dale (Hackman) confesses tragic mistake in his past. Rich piece is darkest moment in score and brings entirely new level to Goldsmith's impressive score. Also find for first time transparent, delicate piece ("The Gym") underscoring small town team's first sights at big-time gymnasium plus rousing orchestral fanfare ("Free Shot") for regional finals. Several other new cues add additional depth as well. Goldsmith was fond of his score, even creating a couple of beautiful longer cues out of shorter ones for his original album. We have retained those assemblies while otherwise presenting complete score in picture sequence. The best of both worlds! Highlights abound in this moving musical slice of Americana but unforgettable trumpet solo playing main theme for opening & closing of score stands front & center. Intrada proudly presents entire score from actual digital session masters combining mixing talents of two legendary engineers: Mike Ross, Bruce Botnick. Project took years to develop, finally came together through courtesy of both MGM, Universal Music. A definitive presentation of one of Goldsmith's most beloved works! Jerry Goldsmith conducts.

  • LaLaLand Records to release expanded 3CD Star Trek: The Motion Picture soundtrack

    25 maj 2012, 17:31 av wOoDy__


    Discs 1 and 2 include the score for the film’s theatrical release and premiere the early rejected cues that Goldsmith composed early on in the scoring process. The 1979 original LP soundtrack follows, much of which was performed and edited differently than the actual film cues. This program concludes the second disc, with Disc 3 presenting additional alternates (including those heard on the previous Sony expanded CD release of 1999, Columbia C2K 66134) and yet more bonus material. Among the highlights are early takes of the “Main Title” (including extensive stage chatter), isolated segments featuring Craig Huxley’s “blaster beam” and synthesizer effects, the domestic CD debut of jazz artist Bob James’ disco cover version of Goldsmith’s theme plus Shaun Cassidy’s vocal version of the movie’s love theme, “A Star Beyond Time.” Tireless co-producer Mike Matessino and film historian Jeff Bond contribute new liner notes based on interviews with Botnick, Huxley, session violinist (and a distinguished composer in his own right) David Newman and the late Goldsmith. The clamshell packaging and 40-page full color booklet have been designed by Jim Titus.

    This expansive set, a limited edition of 10,000 units, will be available directly from La-La Land Records beginning on June 5. Los Angeles-based fans, however, might want to consider attending a very special evening on June 4. Hollywood’s Arclight Cinemas (coincidentally, next door to Amoeba Music!) will host Jeff Bond as moderator of a 90-minute panel discussion about the music of ST: TMP. Currently scheduled guests include Bruce Botnick, Craig Huxley, David Newman, Mike Matessino and the film’s Director of Photography, Richard H. Kline! Botnick and Huxley will be on hand to sign copies of the CD at the special pre-release price of $30.00, and a screening of the original film’s Director’s Cut will follow the panel discussion and signing. Event tickets are $17.50 and are available for purchase here. Tickets will be available at the door for $20.00. The full track listing, revealed at trekmovie.com, follows!

    Gremlins CD In The Works From FSM

    It is no surprise to hear that the film music labels have been trying their hardest to release a proper soundtrack album to Jerry Goldsmith's wildly popular 1984 score to the box office smash Gremlins. The original Geffen album had a meagre 15 minutes from the score plus a handful of songs. Since the AFM relaxed their policy on re-use fees for limited edtion CD releases and the studios have allowed access to their vaults Gremlins has been a hot property on the top of most label's lists. But no one knew if and when this might happen. Now we have a reveal by SAE on Facebook that a CD would be released "sometime this year". The fireworks went off and party poppers were pulled. But Lukas Kendall at FSM has countered this by saying on his message board that there are still "some major licensing issues to be resolved" between Warner Brothers and Universal Music, who control the Geffen catalogue. And he cannot say how long it will take.

    Our fingers are crossed that 2011 will see the dream full release of one of Jerry Goldsmith's most requested scores. At least we know it will be handled by one of the finest - FSM. Good luck Lukas and all involved in making this score CD a reality.

  • FSM release The Homecoming: A Christmas Story / Rascals and Robbers (1971-1982)

    20 mar 2011, 19:37 av wOoDy__

    The Homecoming: A Christmas Story / Rascals and Robbers (1971-1982)

    Composed by: James Horner, Jerry Goldsmith

    View CD Page at FSM Site (More Details)

    The repertoire of outstanding film music composed over the past eight decades includes a wide variety of significant contributions in a style that might loosely be called “Americana.” FSM combines two such scores—both previously unavailable in any format—on this single CD.
    Fans have long desired a release of Jerry Goldsmith’s folksy, intimate music for The Homecoming: A Christmas Story—a 1971 television movie which led to the popular series, The Waltons. Patricia Neal and Richard Thomas starred in the heart-warming story of a rural family’s Christmas in 1933. Although the film was made quickly and on a limited budget, Goldsmith pinpointed the emotional core of the drama with a number of memorable themes. Sometimes lyrical and sometimes suspenseful, the music is consistently direct and captures the child-like sense of wonder that permeates the film. The composer arranged his score for a small orchestra that featured a core group consisting of two guitars, harmonica, accordion, recorder and harp.

    For this premiere CD release, the complete score (including some passages that were cut from the film) has been mastered from ¼" monaural tapes in the CBS Inc. Film and Television Collection at UCLA Performing Arts Special Collections.

    CBS premiered Rascals and Robbers: The Secret Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn (1982) just over a decade later. It featured Mark Twain’s iconic characters in a new story involving con men and gullible townspeople. Dismissed by critics as a “kiddy movie,” it is best remembered today for its highly enjoyable score by a young James Horner, completed mere days before he began work on his breakout success, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

    Horner recorded his music with a 37-piece orchestra at CBS’s Radford Facility—possibly the budding composer’s first experience on a soundstage. From the eerie sound of bass harmonica which colors the villain’s galloping, minor mode material, to the buoyantly optimistic and uplifting theme for Tom Sawyer, the score bursts with energy and fresh ideas. Astute listeners will note some of the composer’s musical trademarks already surfacing in this early effort. The complete score is newly remixed and mastered in glorious stereo from ½" three-track masters in the CBS collection at UCLA.

    FSM augments its CD of these two homespun classics with a 20-page booklet containing essays and track-by-track analyses for both productions (by Jeff Eldridge and Frank K. DeWald) as well as a brief history of Goldsmith’s work for The Waltons.
