A Goldsmith noir that no one has ever actually heard before?  Yes PLEASE.

 

I was always fascinated with this movie as a kid and I'm not sure I even WATCHED it.  I just dug the aesthetics.

I can't even imagine a world where we get nine John Williams expansions/premieres in 5 months time

 

This is truly one for the history books

Well, not while he is alive!

The track 10 sample reminds me of some of the villain material from Dennis the Menace, which was the year after this.

We play a ton of samples and even compare the score with the Isham scores for those who might be interested in that.

I can't wait to hear this, sadly my Intrada order won't ship until they get in more Rio Conchos...

 

If you don't have the Intrada LSO Rio Conchos / The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint in any form yet, believe me it'll be worth the wait...

I have the last reissue of it

 

I've bought every Jerry Goldsmith album the specialty labels have released since 2007 or so

Ah, then I don't think it'll make a huge difference for you. Just little tweaks Doug Fake made largely for himself, the most noticeable being some volume adjustments between individual cues that make up The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint.

I listened to this score last week finally.  I liked it a lot!  It immediately creates a cool mood and stays there the whole time.

 

The only problem is a weak narrative drive.  It just kind of goes for a while then stops, not clear beginning / middle / end to it.

My impression of it after one pass through was that it’s pretty much just the melody and style of the end credits from “The Vanishing” repeated over and over for a whole score (presumably similar to how he reused the rejected Alien Nation cue for The Russia House?). It’s not unpleasant, but also not especially memorable.
