Wonderfull !!! Thank you intrada, looking forward to hearing the alternates and the new mix.
So great everyone gets a chance to listen to this score. Essential Goldsmth i believe.

I for one am glad, the composotion as recorderd by the composer is present and not an edit by someone else , wich is completly different to me than an album edit by the composer. I really never understood that someone would want that. And i don't have to understand. To each her/his own.

All i can say is Great job !!!!!, great score, makes me happy.

Why not try and edit it together yourself? There's even pretty good freeware audio editing tools nowadays. Or, maybe rip it from the DVD end credits. You may be waiting another 20 years for another re-release of this.

Great to see this one back in print again. Do the liner notes give the recording dates?

Night Crossing was released in the US in February 1982, but I seem to recall an old interview (from Soundtrack!! Magazine) with Jerry Goldsmith around mid-1981 when it was on his slate of upcoming projects - at that time, the film's working title was still Escape to the West - along with Raggedy Man. Does anyone know which one he did first?

Cheers

I knew there was a good reason for never replacing my LP with the old CD version of this score....I was waiting for this new release!!!

I believe he did it in late 1981, between Raggedy Man and Poltergeist.

I think you're the only one who is making a big deal out of this. They looped the end credits in the film for just a few seconds. Those seconds are on the CD, but only once like Jerry Goldsmith wrote it. A fourth edition will have the same cue Jerry wrote, so don't wait for it because you won't get it the way you want it.

Does it say somewhere how limited this edition is? If so, I missed it....

Intrada doesn't have limited editions anymore. It will sell as long as interest remains. Which usually means a title will remain in production anywhere from several months onto several years.

Yep, as Solium says...

Intrada will still print a limited quantity, but if that initial quantity sells out while sales are still fast, they'll extend it and re-press. Then once sales have slowed down they will then just run out the remaining quantities.

So in practice, many titles will still be limited at 3,000 or whatever, if they don't sell out in the 'fast' selling period.

It's just that if you had a Capricorn One or a Bandolero or an Inchon situation today, where the initial limited quantities sold out within a day or so, they'd automatically extend their license and press another run.

But once the hot period is over, it'll then be limited at whatever the residual quantity is.

Cheers

LEONCIO,

I'm curious.

Do you still think there is music composed and recorded by Goldsmith not on the CD?

Do you disbelieve everyone who tells you that some music editor extended the length of the end credits in the editing room, as a cut-and-paste job?

Whilst it might be nice to get both edits, I'd prefer the pure version written and recorded by the composer.

Got mine today! Already on my iPod, and am really enjoying the score. Although I've had the original release, its been years since I've listened to it.
Hearing it today it is like hearing a Goldsmith score for the first time. Unmistakably his sound, and from the period of his career I enjoy the most.
Great booklet, and amazing music.

1982 was the year that Jerry Goldsmith was the gift that just kept on giving. And to someone who had only discovered filmusic (I always liked that spelling) two years earlier, it was an embarrassment of riches for my 18 year-old ears.

Poltergeist alone would've made 1982 a landmark year for Jerry. But, holy cow, he gave us that plus The Secret of NIMH, First Blood, Inchon (made in 81 but released in 82), The Challenge and Night Crossing. You just can't point to that kind of prolific output on the part of a single composer in the course of a year very often. (James Horner had a similar banner year in '83.) I played the crap out of those records.

And those 1982 scores tend to be the ones I reach for most when I need a Jerry fix. I have the LP of 'Night Crossing," but it'll be terrific having the remastered CD with the extra cues.

Which I guess is a really long way of saying: ORDERED.

I never even thought about that, but you are so right - 1982 was an amazing year for Jerry.

I'd add an amazing run for Jerry.... The Omen, Twilight's Last Gleaming, Capricorn One, The Great Train Robbery, Coma, Magic, The Boys from Brazil, Alien, Star Trek: TMP, The Final Conflict, Night Crossing, First Blood, The Secret of NIMH, Inchon, Poltergeist, Under Fire, Twilight Zone: The Movie... :eek:

As stated several times before "Night Crossing" is powerful and sublimely beautiful. I must comment on the sound, one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. Makes the previous two releases sound antiquated. If you want this score with superb sound order it.

The sound quality (itself) on this release definitely sounds better and is worth the upgrade for audiophiles. However, there is an issue that is hard to miss. Throughout the entire recording, there are pops and tics. Every three or four seconds. Now before anybody shoots vitriol my way about this, I did test the disc on more than one player and on my iTunes. The sound anomalies are still there. Is it just my copy? Are others experiencing this too? Are the pops inherent in the recording itself? I will e-mail the good folks at Intrada as well.

PS this post is not to stir the pot so please don't yell at me wink
