I don't know if it's been mentioned in this gargantuan thread but the one I'd still love to see done is The Chairman. It's a gargantuan score with some of the most epic scene-setting moments and most frenetic action of Goldsmith's career, there's a ton of fantastic suspense scoring in the last 30 minutes, and there has NEVER been an official release of the score apart from the original LP. And of course it's all supposed to be lost but Varese came up with one great additional cue in mono for their Goldsmith box set. I keep hearing there's nothing else left but I'd happily accept a version with the remainder of the score in mono (as the added cue on the box set sounded great)--we all thought Dracula was lost forever too so my big tall wish would be for elements for The Chairman to finally turn up...

Yeah this was one of first scores on tv that attracted me to Jerry music - on uk tv as Most Dangerous man in the world. (Was after id heard blue max and patton, so it was a 'Wow this guy again??? Cor he's good' moment!). There seemed tons of music in the movie and certainly is ripe for expansion. Given how good chris malone made GBu sound in mono, for me its no longer an issue. And i never forgot that line on the LP that explained that jerry had used rice on drums. Shame about the resistence to release the sheets too.

Along Came A Spider (Varese / Paramount) -- With Varese's constant concentration on expanding latter-day Jerry action scores, this may come sooner rather than later, though it's not among the scores I'm personally most eager to see expanded


I've been giving this score a thorough bashing lately and I know everyone cites The Ransom as the standout cue, but for me it's always been Megan's Abduction. A guile and determined musical set piece methodically building to it's inevitable crescendo. Goldsmith really nailed that scene.
There is at least a decent 20 mins or so of unreleased music in the film so I'd sure welcome the Delux treatment on this title.

Under Fire.

Please Someone Let’s get the Film Version. It is way better than the Concert Version Album.

Wow did Varese have good timing for you!

I had written, "Along Came A Spider (Varese / Paramount) -- With Varese's constant concentration on expanding latter-day Jerry action scores, this may come sooner rather than later, though it's not among the scores I'm personally most eager to see expanded."

While never a favorite of mine, I look forward to experiencing it again in complete form and perhaps it'll grow on me (maybe I should also see the film?)

Yeah, I was pretty stoked when I saw Varese's announcement and ordered it without hesitation.
It's the kind of score that sits under the radar for most Goldsmith fans but it's a solid if not excellent score with some brilliant moments of action. Like I said I just love Megan's Abduction. I also watched the film recently and think it's a good entertaining thriller with a great performance from Michael Wincott as Gary Soneji.

Lionheart (Masters Film Music/Varese) -- I'm almost positive that Robert Townson still owns the rights to this since there's the "Deluxe Edition" on iTunes combining both of the previous volumes. It'd be nice if Varese put this out complete, remastered, in film order (with the repeat taken out) and provide it with good liner notes.

Well, as it turns out I was wrong! A couple years back when I interviewed him for The Goldsmith Odyssey, I thought Robert had made it sound like he took the rights with him when he left Varese three years ago (someone at Varese confirmed this was the case for The 'Burbs, at some point since then). This turned out not to be the case, so we have a brand spanking new edition of the score to enjoy!
https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=143808&forumID=1&archive=0

And it turned out that Doug Fake had a couple extra previously unreleased (and unused in the film itself) cues which could be added, as well. Amazing news and I'm so pleased to be able to cross this masterpiece of a score off the list. Oh, and I asked for "good liner notes"? Varese put Tim Greiving on the job...which means they'll be excellent. smile

Oh my goodness. Hot on the heels of Intrada announcing the new hi-res audio edition of their London Symphony re-recording of Rio Conchos and The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint, followed by Varese announcing Lionheart: The Deluxe Edition...comes LLL's Goldsmith at 20th Vol. III, with expanded S*P*Y*S and The Stripper!

I had written, "S*P*Y*S (Fox) -- while a substantial suite was included on the Fox Box, this would make a great standalone reissue with any remaining salvageable music, plus John Scott's score for the international version. I recently uncovered a complete cue list for Jerry's score, and discovered quite a good chunk of unreleased music. My findings are posted a little ways down this thread on the score, if you are interested: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=126278&forumID=1&archive=0"



MV also wrote the following in the LLL thread:
"SPYS and STRIPPER are remastered and expanded...also includes Jerry's one FLAMING STAR track"

I didn't even realize until a few months ago that the FSM release of The Stripper was not complete, but when I read the original product description it carefully describes Nick Quarry as complete but not its disc mate. (Heads up: Room 222 is described as "complete" by FSM but not Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies which it was paired with.) I'm excited to find out how much more music will be on this 2 CD set, because the original programs (19 minutes for SPYS and 45 minutes for The Stripper) would have easily fit on one CD.

"Pacer's Farewell" is a superb finale cue for the dramatic 1960s Elvis Presley western film Flaming Star. I'm excited to finally have it on CD as well, instead of just hidden away on an isolated score track!

It's (already!) that time again...Intrada Records has announced their FOURTH Jerry Goldsmith premiere of the past year!

I had written,
"Shamus (Columbia --> Sony Pictures) -- this has been suggested for the new Tadlow/Prometheus Goldsmith series in this thread and others, which is probably the best chance for this score's release because Lukas said the following a couple years ago in his comments for FSM's The Last Run release when he went through with his reminiscences for all the remaining FSM catalogue: "I love this era of Goldsmith's 'mod' writing--'Border Crossing' from The Last Run is a prime example. Unfortunately two of the better scores in this style, Shamus and the ABC TV movie Pursuit, are kaput as far as master tapes." If somehow original tapes are discovered I suspect Intrada will put them out."

Well, somehow Intrada pulled it off! Amazing to finally be getting this fun score and I can't wait to hear it in music-only form. Dare we hold out hope that Pursuit will be found in someone's attic now, too? I hope to produce a Soundtrack Spotlight on Shamus soon...which reminds me, I never shared the one we did on Face of a Fugitive, the previous Goldsmith premiere from Intrada:

https://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/8192306-odyssey-soundtrack-spotlight-face-of-a-fugitive-1959


And we (well, David and Clark in this case; I was barely involved) did one with Bruce Botnick on Along Came a Spider after that:

https://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/8360054-odyssey-soundtrack-spotlight-along-came-a-spider-2001


And finally, we (the whole Goldsmith Odyssey team including Jens) just recently did one with Jeff Bond on LLL's Goldsmith at 20th Vol. 3:

(If anyone has any feedback on these podcast episodes, please share it!)

Let's hope Robert is also wrong about the Final Conflict, just a few months left for any announcement on a 40th Anniversary edition, but seeing as there was no 40th edition for Omen II hope is dwindling

Belated update to main post: I had written, "Caboblanco -- does someone know for sure if anything is missing from the Prometheus? If so and if tapes survive this could be due for a re-do."

And it turned out LLL stepped up to the plate, with Neil S. Bulk producing, Chris Malone mixing, and Jeff Bond writing notes... superior new cover art too by Scott Saslow:
https://lalalandrecords.com/cabo-blanco-limited-edition-soundtrack/

Only slightly expanded score-wise, but with a significant amount of source music included for the first time, including Jerry conducting the full opening movement of Beethoven's 7th symphony!

Also, a Lionheart Spotlight:

IT IS HERE.

THE BIG ONE.

The legendary lost Goldsmith score that few have heard, and we wouldn't even know it was ever recorded were it not for Mike Ross-Trevor telling us of its "dark Chinatown" vibe.

THE PUBLIC EYE: http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8736

The last recorded but unused Goldsmith score that was unreleased on album, until now. Soon we will all be able to hear it, for the first time.

And wow, Intrada. FIVE Jerry Goldsmith feature film score premieres, in a single year of time. in the 2020s, when so few of those are left. During a pandemic, no less. If this doesn't win them Film Music Record Label of the Year I don't know what would.

Don't give up your day job just yet.

On the other hand, I completely share your enthusiasm. This is an unparalleled epoch for Goldsmith fans.

Once upon a time Yavar stood in The Shadow
A Raggedy Man from The ‘Burbs
Making ends meet as a Rent-a-Cop by day
While studying the noble practice of Criminal Law by night

But then a Legend caught his interest
Jerry Goldsmith - otherwise known as The Man
A maestro of a composer for The Swarm of film scores throughout the 1950s - 2000s
Whose musical Magic captivated audiences everywhere

So Yavar was inspired to stand in The Public Eye and make his way to L.A.
Acting on Basic Instinct, Yavar naturally set out in Pursuit of this film composer Goldsmith
traveling at High Velocity, he trekked for 2 Days in the Valley
keeping his trip to L.A. Confidential so that he wouldn’t alert Goldsmith to his presence

Upon his arrival it only took him Seconds to realize what he must do
using his I.Q. he spent Seven Days In May to research everything about Goldsmith
Like The Detective he had been training to be originally
Yavar dug up all the Amazing Stories on Goldsmith but he needed a place to share them

Putting himself In Harm’s Way he joined the FSM boards
Under Fire of internet trolls he dazzled us with his research
bringing us The Prize of Jerry Goldsmith stories, remembered with perfect, detailed, Total Recall
he painted a Timeline of musical genius for the maestro himself, Jerry Goldsmith

And having fought off the Fierce Creatures of internet trolls,
Yavar made the Executive Decision to start a podcast
And enlisting the H.E.L.P. of other key Players of the film score industry
They gave us all the Shock Treatment by releasing an amazing podcast

With its broadcast waves Soarin’ Over California and beyond,
Yavar’s podcast brings his story Full Circle, his voice echoing from Indiana to Inchon
across The River Wild and Lilies of the Field to A Patch of Blue by the Islands in the Stream
Like the Twilight’s Last Gleaming, Yavar will always be there.
