Hmmm...maybe you'll love The Man, but you disliking Face of a Fugitive has me a bit worried you won't like Black Patch, to be honest. I guess it depends on why you didn't like Face of a Fugitive. If it was the old-fashioned Golden Age sound of it, then Black Patch *might* not have that issue as many parts of it are more spare in sound than that score...but my favorite part of the score (the two cues that make up the romantic sequence in the middle) is very much a similar sort of (breathtaking IMO) Golden Age scoring.

I'm surprised you didn't at least like the action cues in Face of a Fugitive. They didn't click with you?

Will they be employing Union Crickets?







Awful photo of Goldsmith. Makes him look like Phil Spector.

Yes...I guess it is that "golden age"scoring you are reffering to.
Which is sort of misleading cause I really dig the golden age.....but not this kind of frenzy...nervous...one...I cant "follow" it...cant get a grip on a theme you know.
The same feeling I have with all those horror scores from that era...TARANTULA...THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON...also all of those James Bernard scores for the Hammer movies.
Its also different from let's say Alex North 'style which is so much more "sophisticated" in a way...yet also athonal in some parts.And as you all know I consider SPARTACUS the greatest score ever written.
Nevertheless.. Goldsmiths for me is THE WESTERN guy....he is so diverse in his scores...not like Bernsteins Westerns which all have the same musical structure in a way.( also fantastic..but not as great as Goldieswink)

Huh! I find there to be at least two very memorable themes in Face of a Fugitive. Both can be heard in the lengthy Track 10 (Buggy Ride/Special Delivery/The Kiss), if you feel like giving the score another chance before you resell it. One is essentially the love theme (or perhaps more accurately a theme for the love interest), while the other is a sad theme tied to the main character's brother Danny, and his regret over his death. The theme for the main character (first developed in the Main Title) is much more slippery, I agree. It took me a while longer to get into it, compared with the other two. But if you like bold in-your-face Golden Age themes I'm surprised those two themes didn't win you over!

The same feeling I have with all those horror scores from that era...TARANTULA...THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON...also all of those James Bernard scores for the Hammer movies.
Its also different from let's say Alex North 'style which is so much more "sophisticated" in a way...yet also athonal in some parts.And as you all know I consider SPARTACUS the greatest score ever written.


So I think one half of the Black Patch score you won't like as much, as it's almost more of a noir score than a western score much of the time. But there's actually a good amount of thematic development in such a short score...

I was going to say - a few pints and she'd look ok.

I think Zooba may have also warped that image a bit.

Of course, when he wrote Black Patch Jerry would have looked more like this:

I may be guilty. I think this photo is from him at the SUPERMAN Premiere. I guess he was there to support John Williams and see the movie. I might have took it from a Starlog magazine and hit sepia tone on my photobooth on my mac which I held it up too. I might have had a previous effect setting where it makes the subjects head look slightly bigger and forgot to turn that off. At the time it seemed okay, but I should have looked closer. One FSM'r years back thought he looked like Senor Wences or a Hand Puppet I think. It's slightly off kilter, but it has certain coolness to it. Let's just say he was on one of his "Diets" at the time. Remember when James Horner got frightfully thin and gaunt looking a few years before he passed away? It really showed in his Behind the Scenes footage for THE HORSEMEN which incidentally was shot in sepia. I really thought he was sick or something.

Anyway, I apologize for not making Jerry look the best. Please forgive.

Senor Wences? Maybe not that bad.

I wonder how many Goldsmith fans are waiting until the last minute on this one, and how the last couple days will compare...


There are a lot of people in general who wait for the last 48 hours. They have KS notify them and get an email at that point. So it's VERY common (if not pretty much always) that a campaign will show a boost in those last two days.

We are down to the last 75 hours or so, so we'll know soon whether this will have a similar final jump to Dial M (which honestly surprised me by going $4,313 over goal in just the last couple days). It's $2,519 over goal right now, with 65 more backers compared to Dial M's final total. I'll admit that I expected it to be further along by now.

Glad you liked that lengthy sequence from Face of a Fugitive. Both of those themes are throughout the rest of the score too, so maybe it's an album that will grow on you still, overall. If you want a discussion of the thematic development throughout the score, we do a pretty good job in this relatively brief podcast episode:
https://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/8192306-odyssey-soundtrack-spotlight-face-of-a-fugitive-1959

TAKE HER SHES MINE will though smile

I get it. This was a Goldsmith score that took a while to grow on me. As you'll see when I did a Complete Score Breakdown a few years ago, I didn't care much for it at all and was very dismissive:
https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=113552&forumID=1&archive=0

But eventually thanks to the Intrada album I gained a new perspective on the score and it really grew on me, even if I'm not likely to play it all that often:
https://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/6920147-odyssey-soundtrack-spotlight-take-her-she-s-mine-1963

So I´m deffinetly looking forward to BLACK PATCH and THE MAN...Then after CRAWLSPACE and PURSUIT..will also someday see the light of day....my Goldsmith Odysee will be ...,-after 40 years-, finally over.Amazing!

What about Indict and Convict? And not a lot of interest in his (IMO fantastic) episodic TV output I guess... but how about a premiere recording of his almost-finished score to Babe?

Congratulations to everybody involved for this smashing success! And special congratulations to me, for my inconsequential contribution to the total!

I'm sure whatever's next will be the one score we can all agree on!

(Really happy this is happening.)

I'm really glad I contributed to this too! Still haven't listened to the samples or seen the films, but I'm just happy to have supported the campaign.

It's very interesting to look at the breakdown of backing tiers for this. Of the 495 backers:

300 were at the $30 CD tier
36 were at the $30 hi res download tier
62 were at the $75 CD + any other Intrada CD up to $29.99 in value tier
78 were at the $200 Thank You credit in the booklet tier
3 were in the $375 Buy 30 copies in bulk tier
1 was in the $1400 Buy 120 copies in bult tier

That adds up to $32,855, so the remaining $11,038 all came from people just donating without reward, or people taking advantage of the more interesting add-on perks Intrada offered... alas Kickstarter doesn't seem to provide public data about that, though Tom Hudson of the Horner Shrine revealed publicly in a FB group that he went for the $150 Drink with Jeff Johnson perk, which made me very happy to hear. smile (Anybody else here go for that?)

plus Two Intrada CDs $29.99 [presumably 29.99 each]

I can imagine how a blind date with the shipping manager would be: AWKWARD.

Regardless, you'd think they'd include an actual eye patch at that rate, preferably autographed.

My CC was charged, now where's my cd? And autographed black eye patch? Chris Plummer's General Chang is acceptable.
