Gosh I hope Willow is in the works, and coming soon!

Really? IMHO that score is terrible in either form once you get past the main titles.  Could be my disdain for the movie itself tainting the soundtrack. 

Here's Doug Fake's take on The Mummy Returns back from May 2001:   The Mummy returns to the ballpark, Jerry Goldsmith stays in the dugout.      So Alan Silvestri comes up to bat, hits a ho

Signs is my favourite JNH by miles. I'm patiently waiting for it and The Village to be expanded. The latter would definitely qualify for the 'most improved over OST' thread. The OST is not a good representation of the score.

Tons of great scores by JNH. Dinosaur's few standout pieces are more than well covered by its album, though.

 

This.

Waterworld is indeed good, and my second favorite.

Atlantis is a better and meatier version of that. Waterworld, while fine, feels bit thin and undercooked in places. The heroic theme gets on my nerves.

I find Waterworld too 'heavy' somehow, just a bit overwhelming, even in OST form. It was a replacement score though. Atlantis is a much more pleasant listen.

The film was released by Touchstone Pictures in the US and Paramount Pictures in the rest of the world. According to the podcast the 2 CD-set includes the complete score (73 min.), the original album (30 min.), a lot of rescored cues (38 min.) and the music of 2 trailers.

I's not sure why JTWFan thinks it's a Universal movie.  It's a Disney movie

 

Apologies Jay, I meant Paramount not Universal. Where I live it was released by CIC (Universal/Paramount's home video arm) hence my confusion.

But is the score magnificent though?

 

I don't know.

This coming week, we hope you’ll support our first foray into releasing a soundtrack in the digital-only format. Heavenquest: A Pilgrim’s Progress is an exciting new film with a robust, sweeping score by Jonathan Beard for a meld of orchestral soloists with synthesizers in epic fashion. Still devoted to the compact disc, we opted to make this score available only in the digital format to help promote smaller films featuring up-and-coming composers deserving a spotlight. Beard is one such talent to take note of. We’ll have sound samples and complete contents posted here this coming Monday eve.

Just saw this post on their website and Facebook :

 

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, all non-essential businesses in Alameda Country have been ordered to shut down until April 7. While we all like to think of music as an incredibly essential thing in our lives, it's probably not what they have in mind. So unfortunately, Intrada will be closed temporarily. Online orders can still be placed during this time and we'll get to them when we can go back to work. Everybody please stay safe.

The soundtrack for Sam Raimi's 1990's classic Army of Darkness film has been newly remastered by composer Joe LoDuca for the vinyl release available on Record Store Day and this Limited Edition CD.

Yea but it's a Varese title, Intrada has nothing to do with it, other than carrying it in their store like they do with all new Varese titles

I love this score and am bummed Varese is only remastering the OST program instead of expanding the score to complete form (and that when Varese's website first listed this last week, the cover said JoSEPH LODUCA instead of JOSEPH LoDUCA.  They've fixed that since on the website, hopefully the printed booklets are right)

Yeah I saw that that it said Varese, but I rarely visit that site to check up on any new titles/back in-stock.

 

They shipped me 2 cds with no bubble wrap once, one got cracked.  I try to not ever order from that site if I can.

Coming March 24th?

 

With this pandemic, nothing's quite stable, but it's possible we'll be announcing the completely restored score for this:

Jerry Goldsmith’s restored Morituri docks here next week, amidst the ever-evolving pandemic that cripples our nation and the world around us. While our release contains the same stereo contents as the previous release on FSM, the entire score has been remastered for improved audio and is lengthened - by one minute - to restore previous judicious trims and edits. We are maintaining reduced hours due to COVID-19 and local restrictions during the crisis but orders are welcome and will be filled as quickly as we are able. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be posted this coming Monday the 23rd. Everyone stay indoors as much as possible and be safe!

If you’re a Jerry completist you’ll want it. I spoke to Doug privately about this last year, and he told me basically that it would be a major improvement over the FSM. A lot of tech advances have occurred in audio restoration technology since those earliest FSM Fox titles, with the Rio Conchos restoration being the most dramatic improvement from the same sources (for Goldsmith at least...Kritzerland has done wonders with some Golden Age Fox titles too of course... Prince of Foxes probably most dramatically this past year).

It used to be that in cases of bad wow, pieces either had to be micro-edited to remove the bad moments, or tacked on as “bonus tracks” at the end (see Waxman’s Prince Valiant — now THAT classic Fox score really needs a modern restoration next!)

Morituri was a case of the former, where (as Doug mentioned in his column) about a minute had to be snipped out due to (at the time) unfixable sound issues. Now they can be fixed and we can have the whole thing in great sound!

I’d be lying if I said this was a favorite Goldsmith score of mine (not that I ever hated it; it just never clicked with me), but I do look forward to reassessing it now.

That whole minute will make all the difference!!!

Maybe not, but it’s more than was missing from Magic (admittedly a much greater score) when LLL expanded it! ;) And I still bought that when they put it on a $15 sale even though I had the perfectly fine Varèse.

 

More likely: I reassess the score thanks to the improved sound quality. The London Symphony Orchestra re-recording of Rio Conchos used to be my go-to for that score (and I still love that Intrada album, don’t get me wrong — especially because it’s still my favorite recording of The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint, the companion score on the disc) but after Kritzerland reissued the complete original recording in sound quality drastically improved over the ancient FSM edition (one of their earliest CDs back in the late 90s), that became my new favorite. I rarely used to play the FSM edition because the sound was uninspiring (though I still cherish it for the far superior liner notes!)

The world really is turned upside down these days.  An obscure new Goldsmith expansion is announced and Yavar *isn't* claiming that it's secretly an essential score that we should all be falling over ourselves to order?!

 

I just honestly answer the Kondo question... don’t know if I’d call them “essential” but generally-much-derided scores like The Lonely Guy and S*P*Y*S fill me with joy, whereas Morituri never has. But if I fall in love with the new Intrada it certainly wouldn’t be the first time I reassessed a Goldsmith score for the better after getting a new edition!

April 7th Release

 

While it will be here in a day or two, we're going to hold it and announce it with our 4/21 release. With fewer days in the office right now, it's easy to get backed up so we'll present both together. Save you on shipping, too! I might even drop an Easter egg at some point. But I'll never tell.
