And this came from Bruce Kimmel's personal archives?! To think that it would have been lost otherwise... WOW.

Incredible! Thank you Lukas! It'll be great to hear the original recording including the boat chase.

Very happy that Mr. Kimmel's tape weathered the years so well.

Many thanks to Lukas, Bruce Botnick, all at FSM, SAE and Paramount, and to Bruce Kimmel for saving the tapes! This is wonderful...

Nice! I would still prefer PLAYERS instead, but this is a great score too and it's cool to be able to finally add Jerry's own personal favorite in its original version!

Huge thanks to all involved ;-)

i finally picked this up like 2 months ago so a little disappointing i guess that i grabbed it too early. but it was after all a rerecording so i suppose it could be worse. nothing wrong with having two completely different takes.

Thank you, Jerry.

Just curious where the boat chase music is included. I see that the same number of tracks and titles are used in both recordings, but a couple of cues are significantly longer in this release.

Everyone who writes blogs or posts articles for the website has had access to Bruce's article since yesterday, yet not one person leaked the title. I was the only one who sort of slipped by making mention of the article and the time it was to be posted. Bravo to everyone for their integrity!

While we're being curious, why is this listed as 1976? I thought this film was from 1977.

imdb lists it as being released in March, 1977.

Eddie's Death. You can hear it in the sample. Exciting stuff!

Islands in the Stream premiered in the U.S. in early 1977; however, the film's copyright is 1976.

Wow. I've never seen the film, so it's fascinating to hear the original after all these years. Always had a great fondness for this one. Thank you, Bruce and Lukas.

Thanks to Lukas and everyone else involved in getting this one to us. A fabulous release.

I'm very relieved its 5000 copies, that's a first isn't it?

I'm really looking forward to this, the Intrada release was one of my earliest Goldsmith scores and while I never got to know the music as well as I would have liked, the track "Is Ten Too Old?" has always been a favorite of mine. And now feels like the right time to really get to know this score.

For me, this, alongside Patton and The Omen, is one of my three absolute favourite Jerry Goldsmith scores. I like none better than these three.

(Papillon and Star Trek I being my most honourably mentionable 4 and 5, perhaps.)

Does anyone else feel the same, i.e. that this score really is one of the best?

(Personally, I like this kind of stuff better than the action movies, though I recognise that's going to make me seem odd in the eyes of some.)
