This is no 'Back to the Future'...

C'mon, Thomas, cheer up a little! No, "Back to the Future" this is not, but it's a FUN Goldsmith score anyone can enjoy!... smile

I'm not trolling Johnny. 'Gremlins' is not for me, just a bit of humour. The anticipation and excitement of this release reminds me of when BTTF was announced, is all. I'm happy for everyone who wanted this oft-requested score. Enjoy!!

Do any of you guys own those LP's they sold at, I think Hardees restaurant WAY back in the day. They made 4-5 I think, they were half the size of an LP, whatever that is, I forget. They were like story books with the actors and had some score on them, kind of cool. I still have mine somewhere.

Looking at the back of the inlay, I see Watertower, Universal Music and WB, I imagine getting all those folks to agree on all this was VERY time consuming and expensive. I'm glad that all involved did it and were able to get this out to us.

I was just saying a while back how Gremlins and The Black Hole were the only missing titles in my collection. Now released within two months of each other. My life is now complete.

Now I'll keep an eye out for Intrada's two Conan scores to replace my Varese discs.

What a great time we live in where we are able to purchase scores that we've wanted since we were 10 years old! :-) As I walked out of that seedy Minneapolis theatre back in the summer of 1984, all I could think about was that catchy Gremlin rag. I didn't even notice the hookers on the corner at first. Here is the true and funny story of that day: my parents, brother and I were on a cross country summer vacation, and in a scene right out of the movie Vacation, my "very-unfamiliar-with-the-area" folks drove smack in the middle of the bad section of town so that we could see this film. Despite the shady characters surrounding the theatre, my parents didn't want to deny us from seeing a movie we had been begging about for weeks, so they reluctantly took us in. Upon leaving, it had gotten dark and the ladies of the night had come out to "work". Anyway, I'm humming the rag to myself and my little 6 year old brother starts pointing at the scantily clad lovely ladies and saying "look Mommy!" My Mom very quietly whispers "Don't point at the hookers" to which my brother YELLS "What's a hooker, Mommy?" Ahh, good memories. Thinking back on it, perhaps my bro was too young to see this film, but then again he loved his big stuffed squeaking Gizmo doll, so I guess it didn't traumatize him too much. wink

Just about every movie I saw during my childhood now has a complete score release. Thank you to Lukas and FSM and everyone else involved for making an effort to get all this music heard. And hopefully future generations will be able to discover and enjoy them too. Cheers!

Always wanted this even if I'm not a Goldsmith completist (also Explorers last month!)

i think this was one of the last "holy grails" from the 1980's

If this was limited it would be sold out by tomorrow

Been waiting for proper releases of this (and Explorers) for a very long time. Another great year for releases.

Expected, but excellent news nonetheless.

I'm glad they also include the original album program (with the songs).

I wonder how the score proper holds up as a listening experience with all those short, fragmented cues.

I seriously have to consider this, as I've long since said I was going to buy an expansion of this when it came out.

It must be torture, Thor. Sort of like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.

I suppose this puts a kibosh on thinking (as some did) that Gremlins would be FSM CD 250.

Apart from that: CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all involved with the Gremlins CD.

Ordered (as well as a heap of Williams stuff) from bsx.

Now riddle-me riddle-me dee, what score will the last FSM CD be? big grin
