    Jerry Goldsmith THE MUMMY Intrada 2CD set!!!

    Why don’t they ever shell out for a Jim Titus or similar for Goldsmith expansions. I can imagine some great original covers for The Mummy

    Yeah, I was already afraid that they would use the French OST cover.

    What an ugly cover.
  8. Massive Alan Silvestri score gets lavish 2-CD treatment! Stephen Sommers follows his 1999 blockbuster with even bigger event, bringing back Brendan Fraser in the lead, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah in support. Patricia Velasquez proves worthy opponent for Weisz while Dwayne Johnson makes his major film debut as “The Scorpion King”, soon to have an entire spinoff for himself. Think starpower! Expanding on adventures from 1999’s The Mummy, archaeologist Fraser now finds himself embroiled in spectacular sword fights, battles hanging from dirigibles, desert warfare, screaming pygmy attacks, combat with the titular character… and of course dueling with “the Scorpion King”. Returning in larger roles are those noble Medjai Commanders, led by dashing Oded Fehr. In fact, one of composer Silvestri’s highlights is the sweeping, richly harmonized major-key theme for those heroic horse-mounted fighters. Swords flash to major chords galore! Following in path forged by Jerry Goldsmith for initial 1999 movie, Silvestri writes to gigantic scale of Universal’s part-Lawrence of Arabia, part-The Sea Hawk, part-The Ten Commandments, part-Indiana Jones and part the proverbial kitchen sink. And how it does work! Silvestri nods to all of the above with his huge 100-piece orchestra and 60-voice chorus, recorded in London. Silvestri enjoys telling of the joy in recording all of the musicians together rather than with the customary separate groups recording at separate sessions. The majestic sound achieved becomes one of his personal favorite scoring experiences! Besides the Medjai theme, numerous other themes appear, including not one but two rousing themes associated with Fraser’s spirited adventures. Love themes, sinister ideas and an aggressive orchestral/choral rhythmic theme for evil Velasquez and a sinuous English horn theme for the Scorpion Kind also get moments front and center. All total, Silvestri records some 112 minutes of score, plus an additional 35 minutes of alternates to accommodate changes during film editing, making it one of his largest projects ever! Decca released a soundtrack CD of highlights but due to timing of 2001 album release in stores, they necessarily had to drop large portions of the score that had not yet been mixed, including every single cue scored for the climactic action sequences, totaling some 25 minutes alone! All of it is premiered here in Intrada’s 2-CD set for the first time, courtesy of Universal Pictures and Universal Music Group! Included amongst many such highlights are the epic-scale climactic battle cues, final dirigible action sequence and the powerhouse fanfare-coda that finds the film’s actual title card finally unfolding climactically across the screen, brass triumphant! And if all that wrap-up isn’t musical spectacle enough, the first-ever release of the magnificent end credit music also premieres, using several key themes before landing on the Medjai theme in dynamic manner and unwinding in its own majestic array of brilliant fortissimo brass! Literally a masterpiece of classic-style film music! Flipper-style booklet design by Kay Marshall, literate notes by Tim Grieving further enhance the dramatic package. Alan Silvestri produces, composes, conducts the Sinfonia of London Orchestra and Chorus. Intrada 2-CD set available while quantities and interest remain! CD 1 Complete Soundtrack 01.

    I'd go to Subway more, but there's an actually good deli in my town. Subway is for road trips when you don't feel like eating a lot of grease.

    Big Screen Adventure (LSO/Roy Budd)

    Thanks for the links! Sounds like I’ll have to try to track down a copy. As for old vs new, well, I gotta have both. The new piece is magnificent, and more interesting, but the Princess Leia quote in the old piece is a sublime moment!

    Sigh. Yeah I ordered both sets too.

    America

    I suspect there will be a massive cognitive dissonance: Trump supporters see him as a beacon of what America can be, but there's such a mythologized, internalized sense of patriotism that shaking hands with the quintessential Enemy of America might fracture even that vision. Of course, so many of them have a "Screw it" attitude towards all of Trump's words and actions, I wouldn't be surprised if they shrug this off as well. Mamy of my family members are big Trump fans (including our side that emigrated from Italy!), I might ask them how they think about this development (it's a very touchy subject, they're very aggressive when it comes to defending Trump).

    I don't think I've ever seen a Subway drive-thru. I've seen subways drive through, though.

    Actually I just realised that putting these two 2-CD sets together with shipping easily gets to $80 or so. Suddenly a gift certificate for a few hundred $$s doesn't seem unreasonable. (I apologise for the tone I took in the LLL thread) And the sound quality on these clips sounds amazing, certainly beyond the isolated score!

    The Mummy Returns liner notes are written by Tim Greiving aka @Maestro, that's awesome!!!

    I can't afford to buy both at the same time, so I'll wait and read feedback on both scores in complete form. I might do the Silvestri, just to try something different since I have a lot of Goldsmith as is.

    I wonder if Intrada takes La La Land gift certificates..........
