  1. Important Jerry Goldsmith sci-fi action score from 1977 gets royal treatment! Jack Smight directs Jan-Michael Vincent, George Peppard, Paul Winfield, Dominique Sanda in expensive 20th Century Fox filming of Roger Zelazny post-nuclear holocaust thriller with gigantic scorpions, killer cockroaches and violent weather conditions rendering the planet barren and treacherous. Enter a half dozen survivors, two massive “Landmaster” vehicles and the extraordinary adventure begins! Highly troubled production happened alongside development of “smaller” Fox picture humbly known as Star Wars. The rest is history. Goldsmith saw inspiration in imaginative (if not entirely successful) special effects, creating incredibly ferocious action score for large 90-piece orchestra with extra brass and woodwinds (violins intentionally taceting) plus complex array of electronics. Unique, dry and often brazen sound results in cues that are aggressive, intense, powerful! Trademark rhythms abound, especially in dynamic low brass figures. The late 70’s saw Goldsmith in his most fertile period with one masterful score after another: The Omen, Capricorn One, Islands In The Stream, Logan’s Run, The Cassandra Crossing, The Boys From Brazil, Alien, Star Trek-The Motion Picture, others. Damnation Alley has previously seen only compromised selections released on album due to missing electronic elements, damaged orchestral masters. Elusive music becomes a legendary “holy grail” for many. Enter dream of Roger Feigelson with Douglass Fake in tow and Intrada rights this musical wrong. Under guidance of Producer Nick Redman and Fox team, search deep into vaults unearths complete multi-channel orchestral session masters. Co-producer Mike Matessino next performs restoration and stunning new stereo mix of entire orchestral score. Locating Goldsmith’s printed sketches and score follows, allowing commissioning of synthesizer wizard Leigh Phillips to accurately re-perform vintage electronic parts. Combined efforts of many results in Goldsmith’s relatively brief but unquestionably powerful, knockout action masterpiece to see complete release on CD with stunning stereo audio at long last! What’s more, several previously unreleased cues now appear, including dynamic action-infused “Signals”, “The Wrong Order”, plus resounding “Refueling Stop” with triumphant full brass offering ringing fortissimo respite from the gritty action. Terrific highlight: never-before-heard action cue, “The Voyage Begins (Alternate)”, scored for early scene dropped from finished production offers exciting, jagged brass rhythms unique to this deleted sequence. Other highlights in this score abound as well: Wild tour-de-force action cue “Don’t Bug Me” is surely one of the maestro’s most genuinely fierce and frenzied compositions of all time and warm trumpet solo-led closing theme in optimistic major key (tracked into film twice at end) is surely one of his richest! Stylish booklet essay by Julie Kirgo plus colorful “flipper-style” booklet design by Kay Marshall compliment Goldsmith’s work. Recorded in January/February 1977 at 20th Century Fox Scoring Stage. Arthur Morton orchestrates, Lionel Newman conducts. Intrada Special Collection CD available while quantities and interest remain! I think this just needs a seperate thread. Fans on FSM are literally freaking out about this. I have never heard a single note of this before, but Intrada basically released half of the score as samples! I have to admit this is one of few scores that needed less than 5 minutes to make me fall in love with it! Just one word comes to mind: creativity! I dare say this score epitomizes the infinite creativity Goldsmith had during the time of the late 70s and early 80s! I will definitely get this one! Thanks Intrada! And it seems to be one of the scores that have so little running time that, when the music set in in the movie, it was very noticable and like a punch in your face. A score very economically used to have the most powerful effect, like Patton or Papillon. Anyone knowing the score better than me? What else is there to say about it?
  2. Hello Guys, SO I am working on something and would love to know what gear Jerry Goldsmith used in the later 90s. More specifically around (1998) Small Soldiers and the (1999) The Mummy. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!
  3. This thread is supposed to gather information and hints of upcoming Jerry Goldsmith Titles in 2017. Unlike Williams predictable releases this year, I really don't know what to expect from the Goldsmith corner - do you?

  5. I am just curious to see which scores are you favorite of Jerry's. Mine is a tie between Small Soldiers and Poltergeist because of the way they are written and how I enjoyed them growing up.
  6. Is the version of this soundtrack complete? I just watched the film last night and swear there is more music than this. Is there? http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.6934/.f 01.

  7. Haha so apparently my last Poll didn't have enough choices so let's limit it some Explain which is your favorite of the two below! I pick Gremlins 2 because it is more of a live feeling to me compared to all the synths in the first!
  8. Following their 2CD Deluxe editions of FIRST BLOOD & RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II Intrada is working on a major 'facelift' on RAMBO III as confirmed by Roger Feigelson at the Intrada message board: http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7330
  9. To clarify, I'm just having a bit of a fun here and not trying to spark debate. I just heard Goldsmith's Air Force One theme played during Trump's entrace in the short video clip in this article

  12. Hey all, I'm doing an assignment for my uni course and thought the knowledgeable members of JWFan could help with this particular detail. I'm analyzing a sequence from the film, the Chest-burster scene and the funeral of John Hurt's character, Kane. The funeral scene is underscored with one of my all-time favourite cues: 'Nothing to Say'. Anyhow, the assignment requires that I analyse the use of music for the scene and this is where I became stuck, particularly because of my terrible apprehension of the difference between instruments. Does anyone here know of the instrumentation and orchestration of this cue and in particular the statement of the main theme?
  13. Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape! http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/planet-of-the-apes-live-92567?dt=2015-08-28 28th August 2015, Royal Festival Hall, London. Robert Ziegler conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra. Bring your own mixing bowls and ram's horns.

  15. Ladies and gentlemen, young and old, this may already seem an unusual procedure for me to speak to you all before we begin this memorial/appreciation topic about even the music of a certain dead film and television music composer, but... I know this film and TV composer guy has been dead for a decade already but I am a great fan of this guy's scoring style. In fact, according to TV Tropes, this guy "was a very prolific composer so awesome he even scared the hell out of his peers....He was known for his thunderous, percussive orchestrations, his love for strange musical instruments, and his inventive integration of synthesizers as the 'fifth element' of the orchestra." And so, to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of the death and passing of this legendary film and TV maestro back in 2004, let us talk about and even appreciate the music of Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004), especially his music for film, TV, etc. Let the Jerry Goldsmith Memorial Appreciation begin!
  16. I've seen some topics that are related to this, but I'm curious more specific to concert performance. What themes, end credit suites, cues, etc. are on your wish list to be performed live?? I've never heard any of the Wrath of Khan Main TItle, Epilogue and End Credits suite as recorded by several orchestras, notably the Cincinatti Pops. Would love to have seen Jerry conduct The Enterprise from The Motion Picture. Some of the television series themes would be amazing in concert.

  19. While reading Filmtracks I stumbled upon a discussion where these two Youtube videos from Jerry Goldsmith's The River Wild recording sessions were linked. Part of this material is seen in the old JG Film Music Masters documentary but this is, I believe the actual raw footage from various parts of the sessions from the opening tuning to recording booth discussions between JG and director Curtis Hanson. There is over an hour's worth of it in 2 parts. Fascinating stuff seeing how the scoring proceeds and how meticulous the crafting of a cue can be! Part 1 Part 2
  20. So...I've never been a great fan of Jerry Goldsmith, but I think it's more out of a lack of familiarity than any perceived defect in his work. I'm also interested in experiencing for myself how his technique and approach differs from Williams. I think my lack of familiarity probably stems from the fact that he scored so many bad movies, or at least has that stigma. So I want to know--what are some of the best films that he worked on? Or films that would have been mediocre without his score? For a frame of reference, I've seen Patton and Planet of the Apes and liked them both (films and scores).
