This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Gremlins

I got my cd on Saturday the 12th! I wonder why there is two tracks titled the same title: First Aid? Couldn't they come up with something different for each tracks for titles? I wonder if one of the last FSM cds will be Gremlins 2? I even wonder if FSM has extra copies of the booklets to Outland, Poltergeist, Twilight Zone and Gremlins so i don't have to carefully take out mine and read them with nervousness of ruining them by handling them?


Maybe they used Goldsmith's origina cuel titles


If you want to know a little secret then listen here: Goldsmith also named two different cues with the same name for THE MUMMY.

The title was THE SARCHOPAGUS (or something like that regarding Spelling - I'll edit it later)

I always loved the score.

Now that I have the FSM CD I know how truly FANTASTIC this score is.

One of Jerry´s absolute best. THANK YOU, once again, for releasing this milestone finally in such pristine condition.

The only thing that bums me is that FSM will stop doing such wonderful releases...

Nice - the labels have so far been very fair to share the new editions of the Goldsmith-Dante collaboration among each other: FSM (Gremlins/TZ), Intrada (Explorers/Amazing Stories), Lalaland (Innerspace), The 'burbs (Varese Club). Wonder who & what will be next?

Without even looking I knew that had to be the old lady's theme; I remember that sticking out the last time I watched the movie.

If you have not heard the CD then there are some unused music in that track - sound strangely funny

The cello and synth plays Mistuning deliberately - there are also several places where the orchestra plays mis-notes


Much like in the style of THE BURBS


The A. Courage arrangment of GOD REST YE is a beauty. In minor.


I have ripped this into my com in the following arrangement (with original FSM tracktime in this list)



CD 2: The 1984 Soundtrack Album (31:25)

• 1. Gremlins... Mega Madness - performed by Michael Sembello (3:52)
• 2. Make It Shine - performed by Quarterflash (4:11)
• 3. Out Out - performed by Peter Gabriel (7:02)
• 4. The Gift (4:58)
• 5. Gizmo (4:14)
• 6. Mrs. Deagle (2:54)
• 7. The Gremlin Rag (4:13)

Bonus Tracks: (13:35) - from cd 1
• 26. Blues (2:17)
• 27. Mrs. Deagle (Film Version) (1:27)
• 28. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen (Traditional) (1:12)
• 29. After Theatre (With "Silent Night") (1:36)
• 30. After Theatre (Without "Silent Night") (1:36)
• 31. Rabbit Rampage (Milt Franklyn) (0:47)
• 33. Gizmo's New Song (0:35)
• 34. Gizmo's Trumpet (0:30)
• 32. The Gremlin Rag (Full Version) (3:35)


This should give a nice little listen.

Cool buddy! I do have the GREMLINS 2 soundtrack which I quite enjoy, what do you think of the GREMLINS 2 soundtrack? I've been getting quite a few Goldsmith cds lately.

Arrived today with The Core and Humanoids, listening to it now and I have to say FSM has outdone itself; the sound quality is amazing.

It arrived today, what a wonderful release this is. So well done. Good sound, nice cover, fascinating liner notes. Perfect.

To the music: in its entirety it´s mad, suspenseful, stupid, daft, a load of bollocks. In short: utterly marvelous, fantastic and gorgeous! I didn´t know that there was some fierce action writing in there (Track 23)! How wonderful this release is...

Truly a remarkable release altogether.

A small observation. I feel that little bit of sound compression may have been used on the 2nd disc. I noticed this on the opening 'Gizmo' track 5. (Late for Work) The brass was not as jarring as the old Lp/ cd. Just my thoughts. It doesn't affect the listening experience or anything like that its an excellent sounding 2cd set.

Im just curious and if I'm right I'm left a wee bit impressed by my own ears smile))))
