IMHO most in need of a re-recording are:
Face of a Fugitive
Black Patch
Shamus
Pursuit

Since Face/Black are traditional orchestral scores these two perhaps could be done easily. I hope they are part of those extended suites. Complete presentations would be nice though but we not always need every note. If Tadlow is willing to do these scores at all would be a great gift. And "extended" sounds good, too! smile


I know that Luc doesn't want to do that....but I would be interested especially as the Academy has sketches....

But why would James do only suites of Black Patch/Face of a Fugitive? Why wouldn't he do the full scores, especially if written materials survive and it doesn't all have to be reconstructed by ear from the films?

Also I thought I'd mention that James has said on more than one occasion that synth elements (unless they're extremely complicated) are not a problem for doing a new recording of things. They can be recreated, as he did so masterfully on The Salamander. But I'm with you in wanting Goldsmith's early two western film scores released before the cool "mod" pair (though I want those too).

I've meant this in a different way. I suppose it is easier to reconstruct these early traditional orchestral scores. The instrumentation and the devices used for those mod scores may be more difficult to figure out.

It certainly will not be THE CHAIRMAN as Fox Films would not give permission for us to access the Goldsmith sketches that they hold in their archive. Both Luc and myself would love to record it.

The Goldsmith 2CD set will be for Tadlow Music and not Prometheus and will contain one complete score plus 2 extended suites from 2 other films...

Actually thinking about it there will be suites from 3 films plus 1 complete score...


I think it's time this thread had a bump, due to the fact that we now know for sure that the next complete Goldsmith re-recording (from the Tadlow label this time, not Prometheus-funded) is The Blue Max, and that two of the three suites are MacArthur and Inchon, linked to The Blue Max with a "war" theme although not the same World War and not set in Europe.

I wonder what film the third suite is from...continuing the Pacific WWII theme it might make sense to include In Harm's Way, particularly as the complete score could not be found at Paramount so James might be able to include some previously-unreleased Goldsmith music which would certainly make this already-exciting set more exciting for Goldsmith completists...any other ideas? Another go at Tora! Tora! Tora! perhaps?

P.S. to James: Fox's behavior is very strange in regards to The Chairman, assuming they actually do have sketches on hand. Didn't they give you access for The Blue Max, which they also own? In any case, you and Luc haven't let a lack of sketches stop you before...didn't The Salamander and QB VII at least have to be reconstructed entirely by ear? (Quo Vadis too, I think, due to strange lack of cooperation from the Rozsa estate...)

P.P.S. to James: your statement just above that the Academy has sketches for Goldsmith's first two western film scores and that you're interested in recording them has me over the moon! I hope that's your next Goldsmith project as they are a major hole in the Goldsmith discography.

In light of the news that Intrada is (almost certainly) issuing all that survives from The Secret of NIMH in their next batch, with only one cue added and the rest apparently lost to time, I may have to revise my "most wanted re-recording" list.

Here's what I think would be great: a new orchestral recording of the complete score to Legend, with "Goldsmithian" acoustic substitutes found for some of the weirder synth bits. Apparently a good quality 1st generation source no longer exists for the complete score to this, I believe according to James Fitzpatrick himself.

That'll have to be a two disc set anyway, so I propose filling out the second disc with a 25-30 minute suite from The Secret of NIMH, with the 10 minutes of music that no longer survives on its own fleshed out with some highlights from the rest of the score. Who's with me?

The other option is that the missing NIMH music be re-recorded as a supplement for a first recording of Goldsmith's rejected score to Babe!

I know, I'm dreaming.

Yavar

P.S. We now know the third suite accompanying the complete Blue Max recording will be Patton, joining MacArthur and Inchon. A suite from The Chairman will also be included, and there are no plans at the present time to record the complete score to The Chairman (unfortunately). I hope there will be some previously-unreleased music in the suites from MacArthur and The Chairman, but we'll have to see...
