Wow...
That touches me to tears...wonderful!


Yeah, I got goosebumps and had to wipe away a tear or two myself. Such a beautiful sounding performance...and the music...oh the music! I was never that impressed with the score when I saw the movie, it will be nice to hear it away from the film. Thanks to all involved in this wonderful series of Goldsmith releases, you're doing great work!

Oh, I'll buy this! I'd even buy the whole recording sessions if these guys make it available on Blu-ray!

Actually, have you guys at Tadlow/Prometheus considered that as well? It's kinda like a concert performance. I'd buy it!!

beautiful themes.

Thank you for doing this!!!!

Good stuff, liked the sample a lot.

Since I've never seen this movie, this music is completely new to me. It's sort of miraculous to hear such wonderful "new" music from Goldsmith in his prime. Bravo!

Unless I'm mistaken the piece in this video is the film's Finale and End Title, which was never heard in the American version of the film.

For some reason, the credits just fade our on the US, so this already is an awesome release just for hearing this for the first time.

Tadlow's Goldsmith series continues with a beautiful recording of The Salamander! So we have this one and THE CHAIRMAN to look forward to!
-Rick O.






Are you saying this and "The Chairman" are being paired on one release, or two separate releases?


Hi Basil,

I don't know. It simply that I was aware they were doing THE CHAIRMAN at some point. Maybe Nic Raine could chime in about it...

-Rick O.


No plans for THE CHAIRMAN as yet...

Yes, but does it have the FINAL CONFLICT-like choral work from the opening funeral scene?

Sure there was a large choir for this one too.
It would hardly be complete without it ;-)

Generally I do not buy re-recordings, because I always prefer the original recordings, even when the sound quality of the original recording is worse than the re-recording. However, for the soundtrack of the film "The Salamander" I'll make an exception for two reasons.
1) There is no other option, since it was mentioned that the original recordings no longer exist. This is confirmed?

2) I have the movie on VHS and watch it from time to time to hear the music. As I recall the music in the film, I had the impression that the re-recordig was fairly accurate with respect to the original score, which made me very happy. Does anyone know if Nic Raine had access to the original score (music sketches)?

Fortunately Goldsmith did not use synthesizers in this soundtrack (or used?). Which facilitated the reproduction of the same.
The same can not be said about "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud," because I believe that it would be virtually impossible to duplicate today.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this project. For fans of Jerry Goldsmith this is a great event. Is there any information about the release date?

I'm happy, but keep hoping that one day someone will find the original recordings. wink

Any idea whether the suites From Ransom and The Cassandra Crossing are newly recorded or edited from the existing OST releases from Prometheus?

Listen to the Ransom sound clip on SAE. You may notice that it sounds better than if it were recorded by a microphone covered in a wet sock, which the original recording does sound like. This leads me to believe that, yes, they're newly recorded. And I'm looking forward to hearing them as well!
