The Blue Max suite and that whole album were however recorded by Mike at Walthamstow Town Hall the day or so after their London concert




I was at that concert :-)


So was I ......

Jerry Goldsmith with The Philharmonia did not record the suite at CTS studios as he very rarely recorded there apart from a few scores like Damien Omen II and Under Fire. He much preferred recording at Sony Whitfield Street (a studio I loved recording in) with their brilliant in-house engineer Mike Ross-Trevor....or Bruce Botnick if film being mixed back in LA.

Thanks for the correction James. Was mixed up with the other studio. Mike Ross-Trevor did indeed do great engineering. They must have have realised how great The Philharmonia was and the orchestra gave out another knock out performance. Good to see you on this thread. wink

Major Kudos to LLL for this Blue Max - the best I've ever heard. If you are a fan like I am -Buy It!!!! I'm old enough that I have the original Mainstream LP plus the many CD's that followed.

I just startled myself. I had always loved my original CD of Goldsmith's "The Blue Max," and was just one keystroke away from placing my order for the new 2-CD set at SAE. But then I went to my iTunes and tried to play some of the cues and realized that, as had happened a few months ago when I tried to play it, that I no longer had as much affection for the music as I once did. So even though this is obviously a wonderful labor of love and will surely and deservedly sell out, I left the SAE site without finalizing the order. Obviously my loss.

This is very legitimate.

Everybody should reconsider from time to time his preferences and stick to it. I do that as well.

I have three Blue Max editions in my collection (Varèse, Sony, Intrada) and I will add the new one, too.

SAE should add a watermelon to their inventory and if you order it, it should be a total surprise! big grin

When BMx sells out, Ron, maybe you'll wish you pushed the button. I do, however, see your point. When will the next release be, and how much improved? It's a question that I mull over quite extensively these days.

That's actually a really funny idea. Ed!

Ron - thanks for the story, always interesting to know people's motivation for buying or not buying.

Don't pay any attention to the above - I suspect he was getting some fun out of quoting Ford from earlier in the thread. After all, after stating on the Desplat - Master Composer thread "I have yet to hear a Desplat score that I really liked", he'd be opening himself up to another Ford favourite epithet - Hypocrite. wink

I think it's time for me to lose one of these now, and the loser is... Sony. The Varese, Intrada and LLL will do me nicely.

I listened to clips from THE BLUE MAX. Sounds great, especially "The Lonely Victor".

Can't wait to get this one in my mailbox.

Yes, I caved and bought yet another edition of the Blue Max score. But that cover art and improved sound sold me. It's a Goldsmith classic! Can't wait to get it in the mail!
