I'm utterly stumped. A rejected score that's been released before from either 20th Century Fox or Paramount (minusing things from Varese from 1990 onwards), one the composers previously on Kritzerland, not from: '50's/'60's/'70's, and it should be easy?

I can't find anything that matches the clues. I went throug the 1980's, the 1990's, 2000 to 2010, and I even checked from the 1940's and below.

Nothing seems to fit all the clues.


EDIT:
The Varese Sarabande CD Club release of "Alien Nation" is sold out. But so soon on that one? 20th Century Fox, compsoer previously on Kritzerland (Goldsmith), rejected score released but not the replacement.

That's not really a period piece though, is it?

It's not a period film, i.e. a film taking place in days of old. And it's none of the above smile

Stars and Bars? Bernstein and Myers?


Myers was an Englishman and the film was released by Columbia...

He didn't say it's the rejected score that's been released before (I think), but rather, one of the two has been released before.

Alien Nation - Jerry Goldsmith and Curt Sobel?

Well, wouldn't that be a kick in the pants? The OOP Goldsmith score with the world premiere release of Curt Sobel's score to Alien Nation. I'd be dancing a jig, let me tell you, because I happen to really like Mr. Sobel's score (sacrilege, I know, but I think it works much better and it has amazing guitar work by Tim May and one of the keyboard players is the great Mike Lang). Best of all, Mr. Sobel has signed 100 booklets, which will be available to the first 100 people who purchase two Kritzerland CDs.

I'm quite fond of the film and while I don't normally love synth scores, this one has enough acoustic stuff, plus some wonderful mood stuff that I've always enjoyed it. I also think the Varese booklet notes were so insulting and dismissive to Mr. Sobel and the film (big surprise) that Nick and I felt strongly that Sobel's score needed a release.

Our 80s friends should love this one and I don't anticipate it being around long.

Wow, I finally guessed one of these correctly.

Well, since the Curt Sobel hasn't been released before, it can't really sound better, but it sounds amazing. I think Mike M cleaned up the Goldsmith but it's minor stuff.

Right on, BK! I actually bought a homemade CD-R of Sobel's score on ebay about 12 years ago when I didn't know any better, and even though I liked the music I returned it to the seller because the sound quality was so awful. Looking forward to hearing it sounding good and proper, Kritzerland style!

Apparently our 80s fanatics, who must have every score from every film in that decade haven't been peeking into this thread.

Well, frankly if it were any other label who normally trawls this territory, there'd be five threads about it already. No one expects this from us smile

Once fanatics read Jerry Goldsmith, it's OOP.

Wow. ALIEN NATION? Much as I love Goldsmith's score, I'll be the first to admit that this would be at the bottom of a lot of lists of 'scores you'd picture getting more than one release'.

Wow, this release is so un-Kritzer like...!
