Will 2021 go down in history as the year with the most Jerry Goldsmith albums released?

If I'm not mistaken, 2021 has given to Jerry fans:

 

  1. 2021-01-08 (Varese) Looney Tunes: Back In Action
  2. 2021-03-19 (Varese) Along Came A Spider
  3. 2021-03-23 (Intrada) Face of a Fugitive

Someone should have a quiet word in Mr. Williams ear... you know, just so he's aware of how many Goldsmith expansions are being released... :)

You are not mistaken. Also OMNI put out the complete written score to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, including three unrecorded alternates, one of which Joe Kraemer impressively mocked up and shared online!

And that's after 2020 gave us

1. The Swarm (LLL)

2. Morituri (Intrada)

3. US Marshals (Varese)

4. Take Her, She's Mine (Intrada)

5. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (LLL)

6. The Don Is Dead (Intrada)

7. The Last Castle (Intrada)
8. The Blue Max / Von Ryan's Express (LLL)

9. The Flim-Flam Man / The Detective (LLL)

10. Inchon (Intrada)

 

Oh, and the OMNI score for Basic Instinct. Oh, and for the vinyl lovers, Total Recall from Quartet.

 

It may be a shitty period of time for the world, but it's been a pretty awesome time for Goldsmith fans.

Out of those albums that came out last year, I've listened to The Swarm and Inchon the most

 

Probably same here. Those were great revisits of great scores even though there wasn't much "new" on them.

 

But The Don Is Dead and Take Her, She's Mine were scores I once dismissed (based on film rips), but now I really like them both quite a bit, thanks to the great-sounding new albums. And Morituri even though it only had a minute of additional music over the FSM was almost like hearing a whole new score for me, thanks to the sound improvement. Before it was one of the Goldsmith scores I listened to least often, but now I "get" it, and it's good.

What are the remaining Goldsmiths that had an old FSM edition that haven't been revisited yet with modern tech?

holy cow, Jerry had a busy 1973!!!

  1. Barnaby Jones (TV series theme and pilot score, 1973)
  2. Shamus (1973)
  3. Hawkins on Murder (TV movie and series theme, 1973)
  4. The Red Pony (TV film, 1973)
  5. Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies (1973)
  6. The Going Up of David Lev (TV film, 1973)
  7. One Little Indian (1973)
  8. The Don Is Dead (1973)
  9. Papillon (1973)

That's.... an insane amount of writing!

 

My friend, that's not even all!

 

10. The Waltons (TV series theme actually SIX to EIGHT substantial episode scores in the first season, 1973)

11. Police Story (TV series theme and pilot score, 1973)

 

And he did all of these with no additional composers (just orchestrators). It is one of his most insane years of output, for sure... but 1961 was even crazier!

JW is not the bottleneck for expansions coming out, nor the labels, nor the people doing the work for the labels.  It's entirely on the studio's side.

 

Of course! I was just making a joke about the friendly rivalry the two composers had with each other :)

 

I also wish the studios would stop dragging their feet!

The Waltons began in 1972

 

Oops! You're right. Jerry scored only one episode of The Waltons which aired in 1973: S1E17 "The Love Story". The rest (and the new theme, since the pilot telefilm The Homecoming from 1971 didn't include it) were all done in 1972

And, unlike many of the other warmed-over-for-fifteenth-time re-re-re-releases, Shamus is actually a fun groovy addition in the Cleopatra Jones-style of the day.

I think Goldsmith is about to overtake Williams in the number of albums in my collection. There are just so many coming out all the time. It has been a true flood. 

 

Welcome to my ~2010.

Here are the Goldsmith albums put out by FSM in chronological order of their original release, and the status of them being revisited (or not...or very unlikely because the FSM albums are still being kept in print):

 

1. Stagecoach / The Loner: released by FSM as Vol. 1, No. 1 in May 1998, later revisited by La-La Land in June 2012, remastered and with certain overlays/sweeteners restored for the first time; now OOP so could potentially be revisited in their new Goldsmith at 20th series (as The Blue Max was)

FSM product page: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/27/Stagecoach-The-Loner/

Surprisingly still available from their partner Screen Archives: https://www1.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/37990/STAGECOACH-THE-LONER/

La-La Land product page (OOP): https://lalalandrecords.com/stagecoach-the-loner-limited-edition/

 

2. 100 Rifles: released by FSM as Vol. 2, No. 1 in March 1999, later revisited by La-La Land in June 2018, remastered and paired with a reissue of the amazing Kritzerland remaster of Rio Conchos; still in print so probably not going to show up in new Goldsmith at 20th series

La-La Land product page (available): https://lalalandrecords.com/100-rifles-rio-conchos-limited-edition-2-cd-set/

 

3. Patton (paired with Flight of the Phoenix by Frank DeVol): released by FSM as Vol. 2, No. 2 in April 1999, later revisited by Intrada in November 2010, remastered and paired with a second disc premiering the original album recording on CD (and also one cue from that album recording premiering sans dialogue)...and for good measure, Intrada also revisited Frank DeVol's Flight of the Phoenix a few months ago so that it's now in complete form too; still in print so probably not going to show up in Goldsmith at 20th series

4. Rio Conchos: released by FSM as Vol. 2, No. 8 in December 1999, later revisited by Kritzerland in October 2014, and that incredible Mike Mattesino stereo restoration promptly sold out but was later reissued by La-La Land, paired with their remaster of 100 Rifles in June 2018; still in print so probably not going to show up in new Goldsmith at 20th series

5.

(La-La Land product page no longer online)

 

8. The Stripper / Nick Quarry: released by FSM as Vol. 3, No. 9 in January 2001, first score in this pairing remastered and revisited by La-La Land just this month (May 2021), paired with the substantial expansion of S*P*Y*S; the latter score on this OOP FSM two-fer being ripe for a later revisit in new Goldsmith at 20th series

9. Room 222 / Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies: released by FSM as Vol. 4, No. 8 in June 2001, and since that release is OOP and neither score has ever been revisited, they are both good contenders for inclusion in La-La Land's new Goldsmith at 20th series but will probably be given new disc partners

FSM product page (OOP): https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/191/Room-222-Ace-Eli-and-Rodger-of-the-Skies/

 

10. Morituri (paired with Raid on Entebbe by David Shire): released by FSM as Vol. 4, No. 12 in August 2001, later revisited by Intrada and substantially restored/remastered (and expanded by a minute) in March 2020; somehow it's already sold out so I guess it's possible La-La Land might decide to pair it with something else in their new Goldsmith at 20th series... by the way David Shire's Raid on Entebbe is an awesome score and totally deserves an expansion :)

11. The Illustrated Man: released by FSM as Vol. 4, No. 14 in September 2001, this is OOP and has never been revisited but since Warner Bros. (this was FSM's first non-Fox Goldsmith title) has recently become a lot more expensive/difficult for labels to deal with, it doesn't seem likely that we'll be getting a new edition any time soon

FSM product page (OOP): https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/208/Illustrated-Man-The/

 

12. Logan's Run: released by FSM as Vol. 5, No. 2 in January 2002, and still maintained in print and available

FSM product page: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/221/Logan’s-Run-1976-Feature-Film/

15. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (also includes series scores by other composers): released by FSM as Vol. 5, No. 18 in November 2002, and now OOP

16. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Vol. 2 (primarily music by other composers): released by FSM as Vol. 6, No. 17 in October 2003, and now OOP

17. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Vol. 3 (mostly music by other composers): released by FSM as Vol. 7, No. 14 in September 2004, and now OOP

I decided to group these together even though they were separated by a year between release. They were some of FSM's most popular releases (they even did a fourth volume of music for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. movies which is still available from Screen Archives, but that only featured some re-recordings of Goldsmith cues). Due to that popularity, it's possible that another label might decide to revisit the series if they can work out a deal (but historical MGM stuff is controlled by Rhino and therefore Warner Bros. music), perhaps even putting all the Goldsmith music in proper order: Because FSM didn't know their first volume would be so popular, they concentrated on putting out just the highlights, so some of Goldsmith's cues for the series didn't come out until later volumes. I would probably re-buy if a label was interested in putting all the Goldsmith material back out in complete & chronological form.

19. Wild Rovers: released by FSM as Vol. 6, No. 15 in September 2003this is OOP and has never been revisited but since historical MGM titles are now controlled by Warner Bros. (which has recently become a lot more expensive/difficult for labels to deal with) it doesn't seem likely that we'll be getting a new edition any time soon

FSM product page (OOP): https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/278/Wild-Rovers/

 

20. Jericho (paired with The Ghostbreaker by John Williams): released by FSM as Vol. 8, No. 6 in May 2005, this is OOP and in the same boat as other historical MGM film and TV (controlled by Warner Bros.), but doesn't have the popularity of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. so seems much less likely for a revisit (and I also doubt John Williams would approve a revisit of his score, now)

FSM product page (OOP): https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/336/Jericho-The-Ghostbreaker/

 

21. Coma (paired with Westworld by Fred Karlin and The Carey Treatment by Roy Budd): released by FSM as Vol. 8, No. 16 in September 2005, this is long OOP and very pricey/in-demand on the secondary market. A revisit pairing it with the original album (which had a very different mix) would make a lot of sense, but again it's historical MGM and controlled by Warner Bros...still it might be popular enough to warrant the extra cost and trouble of a revisit.

22. The Last Run / Crosscurrent (paired with The Scorpio Letters by Dave Grusin): released by FSM as Vol. 9, No. 20 in January 2007, and still available (note: Crosscurrent was a premiere, but The Last Run simply a reissue of the original album recording as the film recording is lost)

23. The Satan Bug: released by FSM as Vol. 10, No. 6 in May 2007, and still available (note: only half the score was recovered from a music-only source; the other half sadly could only be taken from a music & effects track, and is therefore plagued by effects throughout, leading FSM to dub it an "Archival Edition"...if the rest of the score is ever discovered in music-only form, I have high hopes that another label would revisit)

24. Under Fire: released by FSM as Vol. 11, No. 4 in May 2008, and now OOP (note: this was simply a reissue of the original album as the complete film recording is lost; hopefully in the future the sessions will turn up and another label will be able to produce a complete edition)

FSM product page (OOP): https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/398/Under-Fire/

 

25. Dr. Kildare (one packed Goldsmith disc but also includes series scores by other composers): released by FSM as Vol. 12, No. 6 in April 2009, and now OOP; this amazing set could use a reissue (the Goldsmith disc at the very least) but is historical MGM and therefore controlled by Warner Bros.

29. Outland: released by FSM as Vol. 13, No. 8 in June 2010, and (despite what the FSM product page says) it appears to have gone OOP; since it's a Warner Bros. title it may not be reissued any time soon

30. Poltergeist: released by FSM as Vol. 13, No. 18 in December 2010, and (despite what the FSM product page says) it appears to have gone OOP; since it's a Warner Bros. title it may not be reissued any time soon, but it probably has a better chance than most due to the popularity of the film and score

Whew! That ended up being a bigger project than I expected, but I hope it's helpful. FSM sure released a lot of Goldsmith over the course of almost a decade and a half -- 32 of their 250 releases!
 

So to sum up it really seems like only the Fox titles released by FSM have been getting revisited by other labels (or are likely to be in the near future). The other stuff is all Paramount or Warner Bros.-controlled and either still in-print/available or difficult to license for a reissue at this point. (Yes, LLL did put out The Swarm early last year from Warner Bros., but that was in the works for years and years, before licensing became more difficult and expensive from the studio.)

Moradi weeps for there are now no new Goldsmiths to hope for....😉

 

No, Moradi weeps because he doesn't know when he's going to manage to fit Soundtrack Spotlight recordings into his schedule for this incredible deluge of Goldsmith releases. (If he'd known what he was in for over the next year, he might not have started this popular new podcast sub-series.... we want to go back to recording regular episodes more, well, regularly!)

 

There are plenty of new Goldsmiths to hope for, still. And the ones that are lost to time like Black Patch could still be re-recorded, and ones that were written but never recorded like Babe and The Kid could receive premiere orchestral recordings funded via Kickstarter or something... the man was just so prolific. I'll be surprised if it's all released any time soon. I'm sure by the end of my lifetime (and I'm 35) there will still be great unreleased Goldsmith scores, even if it's just obscure stuff he wrote for live TV. :)

Wow thank you Yavar, that list is great!  I never would guessed they released 32 Goldsmith titles, quite impressive.

 

I had no idea Poltergeist and Outland had gone OOP, damn!

 

It's worth noting that The Prize had 5 extra cues later released on their Poltergiest set; It'd be nice to get a new definitive edition of The Prize with everything in one place, not to mention a new (remastered?) edition of Poltergeist without those cues included there

Because it's not a movie, which is why I forget about it as well. :)

I mean, FIVE of them were twofers (and I'm not counting pairings with non-Goldsmith scores) and one of them had *THREE* Goldsmith titles, so it's even more impressive than that, really, in terms of quantity of Goldsmith scores... and most of them, especially early on, were premieres!

Not entirely accurate. I was tempted to include mention of the situation in my list above, but I figured it would be too confusing and my post was already overwhelming enough. But I guess I'll explain here:

 

The Prize was actually the very first Jerry Goldsmith score to receive a unique album recording (distinct and different from the film recording) around the time of the film's release, in 1963. Unlike later unique album recordings of Goldsmith scores (Stagecoach, Our Man Flint, In Like Flint, Hour of the Gun, Justine, Patton, Wild Rovers, The Last Run, MacArthur, Capricorn One, Damien: Omen II, and Masada) it did not make up a whole album on its own. I'll quote the FSM product page for their still-available edition of The Prize:
https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/243/Prize-The/

"The Prize was released on LP at the time of the film; however, the album included only four re-recorded Goldsmith cuts combined with popular movie themes having nothing to do with The Prize. FSM's premiere CD (entirely in stereo) features Goldsmith's complete original soundtrack as recorded for The Prize, with bonus tracks of the film's source music as well as the four LP score cuts following the main program."

 

Then later when FSM got to doing a definitive Poltergeist, they discovered a better source for those four cues from the album re-recording...and on that source was an additional re-recorded cue which had been recorded for that original album but never been released before:

"As a bonus, disc 2 also includes the re-recorded suite of cues (including one previously unreleased) from Goldsmith’s The Prize (1963). Originally recorded for MGM LP, four of these tracks were included on FSM’s CD of the complete score (FSMCD Vol. 5, No. 16), but all five have now been remixed for superior sound quality from newly-discovered ½” three-track masters."

 

So really, the FSM Poltergeist release had only ONE extra cue (and their previous release wasn't missing any cues from the film recording; there was just a cue from the album recording that nobody knew about because it wasn't put on the original album), though it did include four other album recording cues from superior sources.

Ah, thanks for explaining that!


Still, a re-do of The Prize with modern tech used for the film recordings and the 5 album re-recordings from that newer located source included would be welcome some day, right?

I mean, sure, it'd be nice to have the five re-recorded cues from the best possible source included with the complete film recording, and maybe the sound could be improved a bit further with new tech, who knows? For now I'm quite happy with the FSM release(s) -- excellent sound to my ears! And for my iTunes, I just deleted the four poorer-sounding album recording cues from the FSM release of The Prize, and imported the five superior-source album recording cues from the FSM release of Poltergeist, as "The Prize Album Recording":

Sorted!

 

Hmmm...just realized I need to renumber the Album Recording cues as "1, 2, 3, 4, 5" in my iTunes, for them to fully be their own normal album with no reference to the FSM 2 disc Poltergeist release they were pulled from... yes, I'm OCD about this. :)

Whew! That ended up being a bigger project than I expected, but I hope it's helpful. FSM sure released a lot of Goldsmith over the course of almost a decade and a half -- 32 of their 250 releases!

 

You should start charging for these mammoth posts.

It's worth noting that The Prize had 5 extra cues later released on their Poltergiest set; It'd be nice to get a new definitive edition of The Prize with everything in one place, not to mention a new (remastered?) edition of Poltergeist without those cues included there

Wow, so the The Prize cues on the Poltergeist release are only the previously unreleased ones? EDIT: Nevermind, I just read Yavar's post.

Logan's Run, Gremlins, and Poltergeist were released on CD and digitally by Watertower Records around 2015. They're now OOP on CD, but still available digitally. I guess the Goldsmith ones were just re-releases of the masterings done by FSM, just like North ny Northwest was a re-release of the Intrada remaster.

World premiere release of Jerry Goldsmith score for Burt Reynolds private eye film! Buzz Kulik directs, Barry Beckerman scripts, Columbia Pictures presents, Burt Reynolds stars with  Dyan Cannon, Joe Santos, John Glover, Larry Block, John P. Ryan, opera star George Tozzi plus “Morris the Cat” (an animal shelter rescue feline made famous in 70’s television commercials as well as Robert Altman’s feature The Long Goodbye). Goldsmith had already worked with director Kulik on Warning Shot (1967) starring David Janssen and he followed Shamus with Kulik’s Babe, earning an Emmy Award for his sensitive score. Shamus McCoy is an extremely low-rent private detective who finds himself on a case involving murder, stolen diamonds, doubler crosses, chases (with some fancy stunt work largely performed by Reynolds)… and, of course, romance. Jerry Goldsmith offers the picture just under 26 minutes of original music, following a trend of relatively brief scores he sometimes wrote for pictures as varied as Von Ryan’s Express, Patton, Chinatown, Escape From The Planet Of The Apes and others. Goldsmith launches from the outset with his “Main Title” in easy-going style, featuring light percussion, fender bass, organ and gentle piano on his primary theme. Both lengthy and melodic, Goldsmith illuminates McCoy’s humble beginnings with simplicity and breeze. It’s a tune that recurs several times throughout  the score, each with a guise of its own. Additional charm can be heard as the idea plays throughout both parts of “Getting Acquainted”. Note an especially gentle embellishing figure on harp during the second part. New thematic material opens “Surprise Visit”, featuring guitar, organ, harp, percussion and strings in relaxed manner albeit with forward motion. But everything is soft-spoken. With “Here I Come” and “A Broken Limb”, Goldsmith propels the chase sequences with crisp, driving percussion and left-hand piano rhythms playing underneath zig-zagging upper string figures. Excitement! Spotlight goes to “The Warehouse”, especially where Goldsmith highlights the suspenseful search and discovery of surplus military supplies with eerie, transparent violins sliding in one direction above opposing basses underneath while violas and cellos move about with their own figure. Signature Jerry Goldsmith menacing scoring! While complete score is under half an hour, Goldsmith ensures considerable variety in both style and orchestral colors. Booklet includes informative notes by Scott Bettencourt, original campaign artwork and graphic design work by Kay Marshall, cue assembly and musician’s list details. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection CD available while quantities and interest remain!

That's Doug's write-up, here's Roger's

INTRADA Announces:

Image

SHAMUS
Music Composed and Conducted by JERRY GOLDSMITH
INTRADA ISC 469

 

Intrada announces another rare find – the complete score to Jerry Goldsmith's much-sought score to the 1973 Burt Reynolds film Shamus. Long thought lost, what was once lost is now found! Goldsmith took a funky approach, using Reynolds’ relaxed performance as his touchstone, infusing the score with a '70s vibe. Goldsmith's main theme is a droll, jazzy melody, first heard on the piano, that is the ideal musical match for Reynolds’ refreshingly off-hand performance. But the sparse score has moments that burst into action in true Goldsmith fashion.

 

The score was praised in the press, catching the attention of at least two critics hailing his hip, contemporary score, as well as how it added to the entertainment value of the film. Fans would argue that is the case for all of Goldsmith's works. Fans will also relish the crisp, detailed sound of this recording, allowing all the instruments to shine in this long, long overdue soundtrack release.

 

In the film, The “shamus” of the title is McCoy, a low-rent private eye who lives in a barely furnished Brooklyn apartment and hustles pool to help make ends meet. After a jewel heist leads to the thief’s brutal murder, millionaire E.J. Hume hires McCoy to track down the stolen diamonds, though the client admits that McCoy was his “fifty-third choice” for the assignment. The trail of the gems leads to Felix Montaigne, a former football star with a shady shipping business and a beautiful sister who strikes McCoy’s fancy. After an investigation full of double crosses, violent confrontations and narrow escapes, McCoy finds himself without a client but with a new love in his life.

Good to know @Jay thanks! I'm not someone who has a problem with mono (it can sound absolutely fantastic, like LLL's release of Archer) but I do think it'd be nice for them to put it in the product description, because a lot of people do care about mono vs. stereo.

Memorial Day brings reflection on those who fell in active service of America’s freedom as well as, unique to this year, various stages of re-openings for business and leisure after a year of COVID-19 challenges to those freedoms. It also brings exciting news of the premiere at last of one of the most elusive of all Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks, this one from his 1973 private eye actioner Shamus, starring Burt Reynolds. Long lost to the ages, Intrada is proud to unearth it for Goldsmith aficionados! Ready for purchase on Tuesday, June the 1st!

Personally I prefer being able to line up all the scores by a composer on my shelf in the order they were written.  It's a bummer to me when a score only exists paired with another.

Wow, this is a short score. They could have paired Face of a Fugitive and Shamus.

 

Could they have? Some studios have different rules, and don't usually allow pairings like Fox or Paramount, who are (or at least were) more flexible. Can you think of any examples of Columbia/Sony-owned scores being paired on disc?

 

I suspect these were separate deals on Intrada's part and they weren't able to pair.

In these cases, the older score determines the exact place on the shelf. You really wanna pay for two CD sets instead of just one, just for that?

It's not just for that, it makes each release more special too; each getting their own full front cover, their own booklets, their own listening experience that isn't joined with another if you play the physical CD instead of rips.

 

I'll gladly take either way of course, just stating a preference is all
