What repetitions? It's "The Mummy" and not "Powder" or "Deep Rising".

Where are the clean tracks from the complete AFO from? And why is there such a big difference of quality among the unreleased tracks?

I don't really understand your question.  Are you asking what path the files took from recording studio to whatever bootlegger spread it?

You're asking why something illegally leaked doesn't sound perfect?  Really?

To answer both questions: Yes - but I'm not interested in such a bootleg. I can wait.

I don't think anyone knows the exact path the AF1 leak took from the internal people who were supposed to have it and the masses who aren't, but nobody really knows that for any bootleg.

 

A general answer is:  Someone who worked on the film had the music, he gave a copy to a friend, who gave a copy to a friend......

 

As for quality, in the early days copies would be of less quality than the original due to the nature of analog copying (a cassette dub of a cassette of a... etc).  In the digital age, the reason could be that someone may have started with WAVs, but chose do make into low quality mp3s (or whatever format) before giving to a friend, etc.

 

Hope that answers your questions.

For what it's worth, my boot has perfect sound on all tracks. A bit brighter and louder than the Varése, which isn't a problem per se.

Yes please!

 

By the way: On the Goldsmith website someone talked about his "Big Four". Any idea what that is supposed to be?

No, he said something of "Goldsmith's Big Four".

 

And by the way, the big four of composers would be Williams, Goldsmith, Herrmann and Morricone.

Nothing i need on disc. Lots of repetitions. This is a perfect 55-60 minute score.

 

I largely agree for that specific section. A lot of fairly unremarkable underscore in that bit.

 

I focus on the unreleased bits of the final sequence - sand storm, sinking plane and escaping the tomb.

 

However, as the region 1 DVD has a perfect sounding isolated score (with no volume changes), I really can't say I'm clamouring for an official release.

 

(That's as long as you don't omit the centre channel when editing it when I accidentally did the first time...)

The other night I dreamt a nice continental drift divide, Mount St Eidelade, LEONARD BERNSTEIN!

I realize this is an REM reference (great song) but Leonard Bernstein really is one of my favorite composers to have ever lived.  Unfortunately, brilliant as it is, On the Waterfront is the only original score he ever composed, so it'd be a little silly to include him on my "Mt. Rushmore" of film composers.

I'm in no way a Goldsmith aficionado, but Lionheart is one that I'd love to see a proper expanded, and finally completed, release for.  Air Force One is another.  I chose Rudy for my last option.

So it is not yet complete?

 

By the way, now there's another day labels could recognize as reason to release new expansions: The Goldsmith Day (9th May)!

I would have to say Small Soldiers, to me it was a fun film great soundtrack to references to others like Patton and Bride of Frankenstein by Waxman. While I do have a complete copy I got from Joe Dante it looks weird a burned CD-R with a case I made from my printer I would love to see an official release of this good score.

Yes, and additionally the OST is very lean.

 

IMO Varese should begin with treating the scores that have those insufficient OSTs: Air Force One, Small Soldiers, U.S. Marshals, The Haunting and Along Came a Spider. They started with Chain Reaction and Executive Decision and hopefully they will continue with that.

That's why I emphasized that their deluxe treatment is not important because of their high quality but because of their OSTs' low quality;)

 

I always considered Chain Reaction, Executive Decision, Air Force One, U.S. Marshals and Along Came a Spider to belong together, because they're all enjoyable auto-pilot scores that very well accompany GTA:P - especially with filler material from the deluxe editions! So hopefully Varese will complete its "Jerry on auto-pilot"-series.

Aside from some very short source cues, the two volumes are complete and contain more music than the (terrible) film.
