PROMETHEUS RECORDS, presents the original motion picture soundtrack to THE CHAIRMAN, the 1969 political spy thriller starring GREGORY PECK (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE OMEN) and ARTHUR HILL (THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN, THE KILLER ELITE), directed by J. Lee Thompson (THE GUNS OF NAVARONE,TARAS BULBA).

Written in the midst of his most fertile filmscoring period, composer Jerry Goldsmith returns to the Far East once again with a score that contains a martial theme for Mao's China and one of his most beautiful love themes, in addition to some great vintage action writing.

Previously released on compact disc in less than stellar sound, PROMETHEUS RECORDS presents a new release of THE CHAIRMAN taken from the analog stereo masters for the album, newly remastered. In addition, the music has been re-sequenced to more closely resemble film order.

2. Main Title 2:23

3. Good-bye For Now 1:45

Nope.  That's the Prometheus release with 12 tracks from 2005.  This one has 15.  Youtube lists the release date for this one as 2012 and it appears to have bonus tracks that don't appear on any previous release listed at Soundtrack Collector.

Oh, you're asking about whatever's in that youtube link?  I assumed you were asking about the Prometheus release, since you bumped a thread about the prometheus release!

Sorry, I should've been clearer.  This thread is about the last release that I see any documentation of on the usual soundtrack fan sites.  So I thought it made sense to ask about the mystery release here.

 

It's an official release, or at least it's provided to Google by a rights holder of some kind.  But it's also not on Spotify, which is strange.

Ha!  So it's actually from the very user who posted here originally.  Ok, that makes sense.  I guess it was a digital only release.

 

Weird that there's nothing here about it

Did buysoundtrax release this and just completely skip over any opportunity to promote it on film score boards?

That's the same 15 track 2012 buysoundtrax release we're talking about.  Stu linked to it on youtube, and I linked to it on Amazon MP3

I think BSX did indeed fail to promote this on the boards at the time, probably because it wasn't a physical release.

 

Again, I'd be curious if this sounds any better then the Prometheus CD. The three extra tracks are made up of two new covers BSX produced, plus the extra 51 second cue that was exclusive to the Varese Goldsmith at Fox box set, from a mono tape source (is the rest of the album also from tape now, or is it still the rip of the stereo LP?)

Who said anything about a new recording? If you mean the two covers, they had produced those previously and were just packaging them as bonus tracks with the original score, for the first time.

Ohhh, I misunderstood.
