U.S. Marshals : The Deluxe Edition Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Jerry Goldsmith

UPC: 888072125766
Release Date: 3/27/2020

Limited Edition Of 3000

$ 19.98

 

Music composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith, our deluxe edition expands the original release from 9 to a whopping 39 tracks!  The album was remastered by Bruce Botnick, Jerry Goldsmith's recording engineer for the original scoring sessions, from the original sources. 

 

Militaristic snare drums, hammering percussion and French horns along with synth percussion puts, staccato use of the piano and keyboard percussion, define Jerry Goldsmith’s score to Stuart Baird’s 1998 action thriller U.S. Marshals.

 

In the sequel to the 1993 blockbuster The Fugitive, Tommy Lee Jones returns as United States Marshal Sam Gerard: He has been assigned to escort a federal prisoner to a maximum-security prison in Missouri. On the same flight is Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes), who has been arrested and charged with the murders of two Federal agents, though he insists he's innocent. The plane is involved in an accident leading to a crash, and after helping to rescue some of the passengers, Sheridan escapes. The State Department informs Gerard that finding Sheridan and putting him back behind bars is a top priority, and Gerard sets out on his trail, with the very much uncalled-for assistance of eccentric FBI agent John Royce (Robert Downey Jr.). However, Gerard soon begins to wonder how Sheridan became such an important man in the eyes of the government, while Sheridan is determined to find out who turned him in to the authorities.

I'd gladly do design work for the labels if they were looking for designers to help out. I wouldn't be able to improve upon anything Titus does for Mike though, his artwork is consistently brilliant.

 

But yeah, the cover art is... odd. Why is TLJ's head cropped by that huge grey banner? :folder: 

 

I guess to be fair, there's only so much you can do with that badly dated theatrical poster (complete with boxed photos of the secondary actors, yuck).

Oh, I doubt I'd ever get as good as Titus.

Labels aren’t full time gigs. They contract project-by-project. Put yourself out there. 

 

Really? I thought most of the labels just had 1-2 main artwork people. FSM and Intrada had Joe Sikoryak until not too long ago. LLL has Titus and another guy. I could be wrong, but I thought I read that Intrada and Varese both have new art people too, though both labels have had some pretty dodgy covers recently.

 

All that said, there are many, many soundtrack fans out there who make better covers than I do.

So much better.

It's perfect except one inconsistency: Varese Sarabande never titles their Deluxe Editions with "Expanded Original Motion Picture Score".

Probably cost-cutting measures. One of the labels should hold a "create your own cover" competition for a forthcoming release. The winner gets their art used on the release and a free copy of the CD.

Uh, no, they should absolutely not do that. That would undermine all the people out there who actually make a living of design jobs (and expect everyone joining the contest to work for free). That would be a total shit move.

 

Not too long ago there was a "contest" like this regarding fans designing a poster for the latest Bond movie. It was even announced in a video by Daniel Craig himself. Rightfully this got lots of complaints, as this is basically generating a free pool of design ideas which can be exploited by a multi-million dollar company that could easily afford to properly pay artists for doing this.

 

Doing a proper design for a commercial product takes time and effort and should be payed accordingly, especially if it's used generate more sales and thus money.

If the alternative is cheaping out on "artists" who do covers like this one, then I'll take the shit move, choosing the Internet artists who'd do 20 covers for a release for free anyway. And he did mention giving the winner a free copy of the CD so there would be payment. ;)

Or they could use up the insane shipping costs and price hikes they skin off of non-US customers and pay real artists!

That is absolutely reasonable. However, the guy who did the official new U.S. Marshals cover shouldn't get paid a single cent.

Fuck those boxes. The other one sans the stupid 'expanded' font looks great.

There is no cover without at least the "Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" stroke. The black space where it originally was is visually too obtrusive.

This DE is worth buying for three cues alone: The Pen, The Humidor, and Take It All. They contain a previously-unreleased theme from this score and it is WONDERFUL.

 

That said I’ll be editing down my own version of this for listening purposes, a la Star Trek: Nemesis. One of the very rare Goldsmith scores that does not play best in complete form IMO. But glad we have the DE because some great cues were left off the original album.

I didn't even order it, but I already know that I'll give it the same sequencing treatment that Chain Reaction and Executive Decision got directly by Varese Sarabande. I mean, why the hell didn't they join a few cues?!

Looks like a pretty chopped up finale. I'm sure, that could have been two tracks!
