    The Western Scores of Jerry Goldsmith

    Yeah Jerry certainly scored a few bad movies in the 50s and 60s, but nothing like what he'd be scoring in the 70s. I've never seen Rio Lobo, and I'm much more excited to do so now, after reading what you wrote. Yavar

    The Western Scores of Jerry Goldsmith

    I'd like to announce our return to the regular Goldsmith Odyssey with our latest episode, covering Jerry's first three (out of six total) scores for the long-running classic western series, Gunsmoke. And we have a truly special surprise, in that we are premiering these three complete Goldsmith western scores in very good-sounding MUSIC ONLY form for our listeners, thanks to collector Ron Burbella who had some of them on reel-to-reel tape he had acquired some time ago. These are incredibly varied works, with something for everyone -- don't miss your chance to hear what is effectively NEW Goldsmith! https://www.buzzsprout.com/159614/853743-episode-14-gunsmoke-doc-judge-the-blacksmith-the-wake-1960?fbclid=IwAR0k7yIdg6xGfYb4GlxYXPox8QurAUa5ehN--8D97YO6behVGvuaFrcaIVM Yavar

    Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection

    I don't remember reading about any issues with Pocahontas, though I think that might be the only title in that boat... Yavar

    I mean, MV quoted your inquiry and replied with a smiley face, so yeah I'd say it's definitely happening. Yavar

    You've never heard of "cowboys and Indians"? It's even a magazine! Yavar

    Details from Mike Matessino's London talk

    Some time ago Intrada revealed in this thread that they pursued a release of this and The Rare Breed, because Universal had elements, but Williams put the kibosh on them: http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7754 Yavar

    "Indian" is what Native Americans were commonly referred to as back then, and the title refers to an old (and common) rhyme, which was even turned into a song in the 1800s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Little_Indians I don't know what the story is with the camel but I know its presence in the film is supposed to be unusual and comedic...and the movie poster also has horses on it. Anyway, listen to the score and you'll definitely realize it's a western, aside from the middle eastern-ish (not Indian) riffs on Lawrence of Arabia which are the weakest part of the score IMO and the whole thing plays much better once those are easily edited out.

    Well on that criteria including Extreme Prejudice seems like a bit of a stretch, too. Why doesn't One Little Indian look like a western to you? Yavar

    The Western Scores of Jerry Goldsmith

    Yup, I adore Rio Lobo. Glad you do too. Kinda thought you’d prefer Rio Conchos. Yavar

    Yeah but combined with all of the Prokofiev (listen to the October Cantata clip I posted, for one example) it starts to add up in distracting fashion. Still, I'd buy an expanded Land Before Time in a heartbeat. Perhaps Balto is the first of several Universal animated Horner expansions.... Yavar

    There are bits of Cantata for the October Revolution, Romeo & Juliet, and even Peter and the Wolf all throughout Land Before Time. Here's a particularly blatant lift: Also check out the second minute or so of this Bartok ballet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYEijXHFY1w To one familiar with these pieces, Horner's little quotes are distracting. I still really like Land Before Time, and Balto isn't free of this stuff, but somehow I find the quotes in LBT more prevalent/distracting/bothersome. Yavar

    HARRY POTTER 1-3 Complete Score Releases Confirmed

    Yeah, so he did cue assembly but had nothing to do with sound quality/mastering here. Yavar

    The Official Intrada Thread

    Yes. There are some less mickey-mousey elements from time to time, but then there's amazing stuff like the last few cues... If you don't like that cue, definitely don't bother ordering. Personally it might be my favorite Horner score for an animated film (and it was his last). The Land Before Time is also great of course but I find the Prokofiev quotes somewhat distracting, and it's honestly just as mickey-mousey at times. Yavar
