Good Tidings from The Varese Club: Jerry Goldsmith's THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER is finally coming to us.

Happy Birthday maestro Jerry Goldsmith:




THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music Composed and Conducted by Jerry Goldsmith

Today we celebrate what would have been Jerry Goldsmith’s 85th birthday. And what a release we have to mark the occasion!! A title like this deserves to be announced alone. One of the greatest and most important scores of Jerry Goldsmith’s early career is 1963’s The List of Adrian Messenger. We couldn’t be more excited about our world premiere release of this landmark score and we suspect there will be many who share our excitement. The List of Adrian Messenger is fun and it’s dark, it’s romantic and it has thrilling action! The score features a fox hunt cue that ranks among the greatest cues of Goldsmith’s career. It was very clear, even in Jerry Goldsmith’s earliest scores, that he was a master. Jerry was already revolutionizing film music by the time he wrote this score. He had already written such film scores and Freud, Lonely Are The Brave and Studs Lonigan. For television he had scored episodes of The Twilight Zone, Thriller and Dr. Kildare. The stage was set for one of the greatest careers in film music history. It wouldn’t take too many more years for Goldsmith to become a true legend. What an important chapter in that story the score from The List of Adrian Messenger represents and finally … it’s available! Enjoy! Let’s all remember and celebrate the great Jerry Goldsmith.

Superstars Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum and Frank Sinatra headline the witty thriller The List of Adrian Messenger directed by Academy Award(r) winner John Huston. A retired officer (Academy Award(r) winner George C. Scott) must uncover the identity of a mass murderer who is killing off the potential heirs to a family fortune. The only clues are the names on the list of murdered heir Adrian Messenger. The tension builds as the final evil unfolds during a suspense-filled fox hunt. Let the chase begin!

My last Goldsmith Holy Grail. This is a touching moment.

From his earliest days when he was trying to get a new sound for each score.

This is his Sherlock Holmes score.

Both are blind buys for me. I love discovering new old scores.

I don't think this Goldsmith gem will last for long, a few days maybe?

Na, they've given it a bit of a spread, but it's mono. It was always going to be mono, but it sounds very good to me. It's a minor miracle that we have it at all, I thought the tapes were long gone.

Maybe Tadlow might do a nice suite of this as a re-recording. Was it ever done previously with Nic Raine and The Prague Philharmonic?

This has never been a favourite Goldsmith of mine (I don't like the main theme and Goldsmith + light comedy has never been much fun for me).
The Hunt cue is okay, I suppose, but his expanded version in The Final Conflict will do for me.
Still, it's a score (bottletop?) a lot of fans have clamoured for, so good luck to all and happy listening (me...more money saved!) wink
