It's not a great film by any stretch, just a Western in outer space. The score though, is superb!

I seem to remember somewhere that 'Hot Water' wasn't written by Goldsmith though?...anyone able to confirm my dodgy lacking memory, or am I barking up a wrong tree?!


Morton Stevens wrote the
"Final Battle" cue for
the film...

I have a recording of that great cue on a private release.
I have heard that Gerald Fried also wrote some music for the film. There must have been little time to write the score for Goldsmith.
Does someone know in which scene Fried's music was used?

Speaking of OUTLAND, CAPRICORN ONE and Ballet, I believe a Ballet Company sometime in the past, did do a Ballet to the CAPRICORN ONE Main Title. I do remember watching a passed Winter Olympics where a skater did do a Routine to the CAP ONE Main Title. They used a lot of sharp Marching Movements and it was really quite effective. I had an old College Drama Teacher that always thought the CAP ONE Main Title sounded like a "Rumba". It sort of does in a way, when you think about it. Okay, I'm gonna Plee Ay outta here. I know that's not how you spell it, but I'm on a new IMAC and I can't find SpellCheck. Ciao.

If it wasn't a Goldsmith piece, they wouldn't have put it on the album, don't ya think?

And speaking of ballet, what about a collage of Outland's Hot Water, Total Recall's End of A Dream, Air Force One's The Hijacking, US Marshall's Following Chen, Timeline's Prep.For Battle/Victory, a piece from The Swarm, Hollow Man's Bloody Floor and topped of with POTA's The Hunt?

How's that for an adrenaline pumping, jumping, dancing, running and high velocity ballet?

Great idea but please add JG's 13th Warrior's "The Fire Dragon" to that list and you got my cash for a first row seat on that ballet.

"Hot water" is as Goldsmith as it gets. Others are right in that the fight cue on the solar collector is by Mort Stevens. You can tell too as it has a very different sound than Goldsmith's music.

Outland was described by Peter Hyams himself as "High Noon" is space. A good movie which becomes derivative after the first hour.

Hey, Maurizio, I'm on a Goldsmith roll these days as well, and we have now come to #14 in my collection, the GNP CD that combines OUTLAND with CAPRICORN ONE.

OUTLAND has a few highlights, and I agree that "Hot Water" is a nice action track. But CAPRICORN ONE is the REAL gem on this CD. From the propulsive main title to all the avantgardistic harmonic progressions that underline the desperation of the protagonists. I rarely have the time (or stamina) to listen to this album all the way through, but both of them are properly lengthed (OUTLAND is perhaps a little bit too long), and coupling them on one CD was a good idea.

Yeah, CAPRICORN ONE rocks as well. I was listening to it in my car last week and I have to say this: don't play the "Breakout" cue while you're driving!! smile I own the same disc with the two scores coupled and it's a nice, enjoyable listen from beginning to end. Speaking about CAPRICORN, I'm amazed at Goldsmith's ability to create a rich tapestry using almost only one theme. I love the rhythmic ostinato on which the main theme is structured, especially when it's pounded on low, heavy piano chords (a true Goldsmith trademark--probably James Horner thought the same when he was composing ALIENS, because he used/quoted that ostinato almost verbatim).

What is very curious about CAPRICORN ONE is that the album recording has a much more rounded, lush sound in comparison to the dry and spare orchestration of the film recording.

Just picked this up for four bucks. Pristine condition. Never saw the flick. Really cool music: full-throtle orchestral mayhem, gentle and introspective passages, subtle electronics. Well worth it.

Is the movie any good? It has a 58% rotten on Rotten Tomatoes.

The new wave track in the middle of side 2 is AMAZING!

The movie is definitely worth checking out, we've discussed it on the board plenty smile

I take it you got the vinyl of this? In that case you must be referring to "Rec Room" which is indeed fun considering it's Goldsmith. But I much prefer the Michael Boddicker source music that ended up in the movie (that music was used for background music in the local moon bar). Definitely check out the excellent expanded edition of the score FSM released:
