DUEL proves that Goldenberg could have written a great score for JAWS.
And, I would have loved to heard what he could have come up with for CE3K.
IMo it would have surpassed Williams.

Great cd, although I wish someone had abbreviated track 2 to approximate the film version. The full version could have been a bonus cue. His source cues are pretty good, which is sometimes not the case with film composers.

¶ The CD cover of Duel by Intrada is actually the cheap-looking cartoonish DVD cover.

¶ I watched Duel in a movie theatre in the 1980's.

I took a look at the different original poster art for DUEL and none of it looks all that great.

What is going on with Dennis Weavers' hands and why is there a miniature car bouncing off the truck? Is that the same one that raced after Dirty Harry in the Dead Pool? wink



I like this newer tribute art though the flames are a bit much, but still it's the best looking one I found without it becoming one of those retro 70s minimalistic color square pop art renditions.

I was 15 and believe I came across it that night by accident, picking it up a few minutes in. With Dennis Weaver and all it felt like I was back watching a perfectly good Twilight Zone episode. The rattlesnakes at the gas station were cool! For years afterward while driving I used to shout at no one in particular, "You're not going to get me on the grade(?), you're not going to get me on the grade!" I clearly recall, too, a music effect that had a TZish feel. The mind's ear tells me it sounded like a cross between nasty windchimes and one of those wobbly saws, in a descending scale or whatever. I'm sure you soundtrackers can confirm and delineate.

The sound is far better than I had hoped for. I've been waiting for this one for a very long time. Exceptional release. I hope this means more of Goldenberg's scores and other Universal-owned music will make it to disc sometime in the future. Goldenberg's scores for 'Columbo' were among his best, and his score for the 'Night Gallery' pilot (and the series music by other composers) would definitely be a holy grail item for me.

I second the Columbo request and am interested in his Night Gallery music.

LOVE the Intrada CD. Question, though, about some sounds on tracks 12 and 13.
12 Truck Racing Car- Some sound of electronic pulsing of some kind at start. Glitch or no?
13 Final Duel- Around 1:10, underlying sound of, I dunno, ticks. Glitch or no?
Sorry if I am being too OCD here.
Cheers!

What an awesome disc. I was really surprised by the sound quality on this and The Car.
Still can't believe all the great stuff that keeps coming out every month. Columbo must be around the corner!

Good questions.

#12 starts about 71+ minutes into the movie. I think the cue is faded in, so you dont even hear the start of it. The idling sound makes sense as a prelude before the car and truck take off, but I cant confirm it on the dvd.

#13 starts about 81+ minutes into the movie, and definitely has that stick-tapping sound. Surprisingly, it's just as prominent in the movie as on the cd.

Some tracks foreshadow the pilot score for Banacek: "Detour to Nowhere" (1972).

Cover Art Really? Don't you know only vinyl buyers want the cover art! Who gives a crap about cover art?

I've always loved movie poster art, if that counts, and "Duel" has had a lot of them! My favorites are the Japanese "Duel" posters, with the tumbling truck, although the crazy Polish one is also really fun (and costs a fortune).



Very glad to have this release.

It's just strange that they saddled them with THAT art, when at least they could have used the art from the new Blu-ray.

Why don't you guys make your own art there is so much artwork available on the net, just download, photshop, resize it to cd format and print it out. Maybe some of our members (there is a lot of talent) can post some alternative artwork instead, that would be awesome! wink

because complaining is its own reward, and an art unto itself. wink

Yeah, that request was filed almost immediately.
