...I can't stop ordering Goldsmith cds! His music is really starting to click with me. I would like all his albums, but there are so many I'm overwhelmed.


I was like that during the 90`s so I know the feeling. Back then I thought/said that whatever interesting score soundtrack I came upon that was not by JG I would not buy that if I could find anything by JG from the same place. So because of that I missed out a lot of interesteing score soundtracks by other composers. So nowadays I try to get those I was interested in but did not buy.

I guess everyone has favorites and many of the ones already named are among mine.

But, I have to recommend

The Sand Pebbles (much weightier and magnificent than most every other score he did in the 60s); and

Basic Instinct (sensual, hypnotic and what movie scoring is SUPPOSED TO BE).

Also, check out the "On Sale Now" link at the Varese Sarabande site. Quite a few Goldsmith club titles have been reduced in price.

ALL are worth having.

POWDER is also very good.

Great score for a fascinating film.

Quote: "Personally, I think his work starting in the mid-60s (circa Planet of the Apes) to the late 70s (Alien, Star Trek: TMP) represent the peak of his work."


I couldn't agree more. Given your titles listed as likes, and your admiration of Conti, consider:

PAPILLON
THE LAST RUN
CHINATOWN
THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL
THE WIND AND THE LION
ISLANDS IN THE STREAM
NIGHT CROSSING
UNDER FIRE
MASADA (Varese)

All of these are film score staple classics- mind blowingly good.

I recall when I finally found the Colombia ST TMP on CD in a mall in San Diego when I was traveling to see a friend. It was like an epiphany, a dream come true. I listened to that very short CD over and over and over.

Nowadays you can sit back on three or four sites and load up your cart with almost the entire Jerry catalog on CD to be delivered to your home.

Wow.
