I'd gladly buy ST:TMP if LLL were able to license another batch. Still pissed off I missed the recent batch of "misplaced" copies (they went up for sale around 4am local time).

Good catch; I hadn’t noticed it was missing. The Tora half was a straight reissue of course, but Ace Eli was a MASSIVE night-and-day Chris Malone restoration which painstakingly repaired multiple badly damaged cues that made the FSM program virtually unlistenable for me. Everyone who hasn’t listened to our talk with him (complete with plenty of dramatic before/after examples) should do so!

Seems like it's high time to update this @Brundlefly -- particularly with the premiere release of Jerry Goldsmith's very first film score, Black Patch (1957), paired with The Man (1972).

 

Here's an epic 3+ hour Goldsmith Odyssey podcast with the Intrada team who worked on this new Royal Scottish National Orchestra recording, including conductor William Stromberg and reconstructionist Leigh Phillips. For anyone curious about the music we feature extensive sound samples:

And for anyone who would be excited to SEE the original full Zoom conversation pre-editing (and sadly without any music samples), in a first for The Goldsmith Odyssey we put the raw video up on YouTube:

 

 

This is my favorite new Goldsmith recording since the composer himself did an Intrada two-fer of Rio Conchos and The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint with the London Symphony Orchestra back in 1989! Very curious what other people think.

Isn't it as simple as: Varese did not obtain perpetuity rights to it, like they also did not for Total Recall and Basic Instinct?

@Yavar Moradi Regarding Matinee: Do you have an explanation for Intrada being able to expand this 90s Varese title?

Yup that's exactly it! It was a surprise to me too, but Roger investigated and discovered Varese only had a term license, not a perpetuity one as they seemed to get 90-95% of the time throughout the decade. With Total Recall and Basic Instinct I think it had to do with the studio producing them not granting perpetuity licenses at the time (like how Disney wouldn't grant one to them for McNeely's Iron Will, which is how Intrada was able to expand that a few years ago), but I don't know what the precise explanation is with Matinee (Universal has granted perpetuity licenses on other titles I'm pretty sure).

I wonder what would explain such seemingly random variations between contract terms for Goldsmith soundtracks. Whether the lawyer drawing up the contract had their coffee that morning or not? :lol:

 

You'd just think those things would be somewhat copy/paste given Jerry's ongoing relationship with Varese in that era.

Pretty sure it’s the studio and their lawyers that matter in this case. That’s why Quartet has done the definitive Total Recall and Basic Instinct — the studio in question didn’t grant Varese perpetuity rights.

The studio in question is Universal.

 

Looking over their list of 1990s films:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Universal_Pictures_films_(1990–1999)

 

Right away I see Back To The Future 3, which we know Varese has perpetuity rights to. Then I see Death Becomes Her, Mr Baseball, and Army of Darkness, all of which we've always assumed they had perpetuity rights to.... but now that we know they didn't for Matinee, maybe they didn't for these either?

 

Later in the 90s I don't see many Varese OSTs, so it seems like Universal got better at releasing scores on major labels during that time
