Wow. Just been listening to Wild Percussion and it sounds exactly like the opening of Williams' E.T.

I know Spielberg is said to have directed both films and definitely worked on both, so did he use what was in fact recorded for the Poltergeist score on E.T.? Or did Spielberg like what Goldsmith had done so much that he had Williams replicate it? Either way, I think it adds a further level of mystery to the Poltergeist/E.T. proceedings.


It's exactly the same. Wow!!! I think you hit it on the head especially if Poltergeist was composed first...


As you'll find out in the notes, Williams visited the Poltergeist sessions and liked what he heard and saw enough to arrange for the exact same scoring crew and facility for E.T. Bruce and I wondered if he'd been there when that super ball was recorded and got an idea....

Since the sound wasn't actually used in Poltergeist there's no real connection there. However it may be something Spielberg was fond of since it was used in the scores for Duel and Jaws.

10,000 COPIES?? That should allow me time to wait until next week to see what, if any, of Intrada's releases interest me. big grin

This is my favorite Jerry Goldsmith score of all time, and watching POLTERGEIST when I was about 5 or 6 years old on cable and for the first time ever I noticed music in film. POLTERGEIST is the reason I listen to film scores and now have this horrible purchasing addiction. :-)

Wild Percussion is most interesting. Very excited.

That's awesome. I love little real life stories like this that put things into perspective. This was one of many LPs I got from the library when I was a kid and copied onto cassette. Played it to death so much that side A started bleeding into side B in a few places. Poor little cassette.

It's all very interesting none the less. I cannot wait to get my hands on this one, really! Many thanks to you, Bruce and Lukas, from the bottom of my heart.

Sorry but there is nothing of new in the CD1, in comparison with the Rhino CD; just a different track listing …

So, basically I would spend $25 just for those 21’10” of extra music in the CD2 … frown

You're also paying for remastered cues. The sound quality will far surpass the Rhino CD.

27 posts and still no long-haired-curly-youngster-entering-the-room gif? I thought it was prescribed by law now that each and every thread must include it at least once. wink

If you like the inferior audio quality of the Rhino CD, then don't bother with this release.

Thanks Lukas, Mike and Bruce! I clicked on the "Star Spangled Banner" sample and grinned ear to ear...took me back to 1982, sitting in a crowded Vancouver theatre, experiencing for the first time what would become one of the classic Goldsmith creations of his incredible career. The improvement in sound quality is obvious and the rest of the package looks great. Thanks so much for loving this score as much as I do!

Does it really sound exact the same for you?

For me not.


Definitely. I know E.T. like the back of my hand. Not to mention I haven't even heard the whole recording as of yet and there is already a section in the clip that is "exactly the same".


It's the same technique but it nowhere sounds exactly the same.
Williams used a much deeper tone.
