You don't believe in variety within the confines of a single theme or melodic idea?

 

On album -- only to a certain extent.

 

In the film, it's different. The score/theme is used interestingly as a sort of "meta"/Godard-ian play with the diegetic and non-diegetic as the theme appears on the car radio, in supermarkets, even hummed by Elliot Gould's character himself. In addition to proper underscore, of course. But on album, I wouldn't say it has much more to offer than what was on the original Varese release.

It's the only "unreleased" JW score I actually own... and I simply love it. I don't like the track order on the Quartet release, but I love my playlist.

 

If you stick on the Varese CD, you miss something.

 

Now I definitely want to see the movie.

Never seen the movie and I don't own the soundtrack yet, is it worth the purchase?  I added it to my cart but when I went to the cart get the following message:

 

Quartet QR185
Out of Stock 

Please remove this item from your cart to complete your order.

This score is an essential of John Williams.

 

That's taking it way too far. But it's an interesting experiment in terms of how the music is being used.

Official response from Intrada...

Yes, sorry. The Long Goodbye is currently out of stock (and we do not know how long it will be gone) so our system won't allow an order to be placed.

It's a shame that according to Quartet Records own website the soundtrack is still listed as in stock yet as another member posted above has cited, once he went through the check out process he got the disclaimer.  Therefore , Quartet should put a note on their website advising customers so.

Just got it delivered today, hats off to Intrada once again for providing fantastic packaging to keep the CD safe and sound as well as decent pricing for shipping!

 

I'm legitimately interested in how many copies they had in-stock when they re-posted it.

The tracks on the Varese are the exact same ones present on the Quartet. I don't think there was any additional work done on those when Quartet Records expanded the release.

Unfortunatelly, while there are a lot of goodies not present in the film, there are still missing some bits that were indeed used, and some of the edits and medleys presented in the disc truncate some of the cues.

Now you have something to do while waiting for your defence! :)When was the blu released?

I edited my post. it's really a music & FX track.

Unfortunately i don't have the bluray with me because I don't live at my home this year. I live in another city due to work.

 

it was released on December of 2013. Wow! Has it been so many years already?!
