    Anyone else think James Horner is better than John Williams?

    Hope you're not saying Horner for the win 😂

    Not really, I hear Horner reuse stuff quit a bit, as in between diffrent films. But Williams stuff to me sounds a lot better. Horner can be good though.

    Is Dracula (1979) Soundtrack Lost to Time?

    I think that would be great but it was a MCA release... Would that change anything? The problem with that is though we will never have originals for any sort of expanded release of true nature or alternates of that matter...
  4. Yes, it was a more heavy PG-13 they cut so much to try to get it to PG, what settled the PG-13 Rating was the use of sleeping medication as a way to make people fall asleep. They couldn't remove that because it was a key plot point. So they tried by removing violence. On a side note Joe was told to make a Teen film (around High School age), not a children's movie.
  5. I'm just going off of what Joe Dante has told me personally. As what I know from this release and personal things I own as well as manuscript copies of this score.
  6. The last bit of the film is edited a lot, it was originally way more graphic. They wanted to try and cut it to a PG rating.
  7. No, Because those cues do not go into each other.
  8. The cue you are thinking of is Patton theme. Jerry had them use a combination of two tracks from the Patton/Tora Tora Tora. The tracks being Track 9 Entr'acte and Track 10 Attack. Which was edited together for the film. It was excluded from this release because it would have required licensing and such for it. Also Patton was a 20th Century Fox Film and Small Soldiers is Universal. at the time of the films release the license for ti was still held by Varèse. That was a big issue I always had with the score was the huge gap in the release. I had the opportunity to look at Jerry's Sketches and Courage's orchestrations and even noticed that there was snippets of music that was not used on the OST and did not even make it into the film that is included in this release Such as Assembly Line, Gwendy's Attack , and a few others. That is the reason on a few tracks it says extended but you think it's been released before. It has.... but not in it's complete form Valkyries goes between Fire in the Hole and Trust me.

    New Jerry Goldsmith Projects in 2018?

    I don't donate often. My last donation was my time on a Goldsmith CD release.

    Well the vibe was suppose to be stupid sounding and I somewhat like it and would buy another copy if it gets released.

    After Small Soldiers I think Link would be a great soundtrack to expand. I believe the master tapes are lost though.
  12. There should a few seconds of unreleased music.

    John Williams Autograph

    Am I the only person here without a Williams autograph! I would love to hang it next to my other composers/director autographs!

    My two friends with me had the same complaint, and the one left with a migraine.

    It could've been the theater I was in.
