Mr Marshall
I like your LP but why would it have been released in 1982?,?? What's the significance?


Thanks!
DUEL was released in US theaters for the FIRST time in 1982. This was because E.T. made SS a household name. So, if they released an lp, it would have been then.

I leave out the redneck numbers, and it is a perfect LP length.


Isn't 'redneck' considered a slur.

I exchanged copies three times in '82 because I was so disgusted with the vinyl crackles during the opening track! Never did find a clean one.

This is why vinyl has no appeal to me any more, at least one of the reasons.

Me, too! Mine were also warped, as well as crackly. I was a bit obsessed and ended up buying ET multiple times – regular MCA, picture disc (just because), MJ-narrated, and then the German Teldec 'audiophile' pressing, which finally became my holy of holies. There's also a Disneyland read-along book and record with Gertie narrating, which I will not admit to owning, no sir.

That's right: Duel. We're talking about Duel. "You can't beat me on the grade. You can't beat me on the grade!"

Does track 16 sound like a Henry Mancini/Inspector Clouseau theme all countryfied up to anyone else?
It sounds familiar and my mind went to the Pink Panther movies for some reason.

Revisiting this score more often than not. It really is an amazing score by Goldenberg. Apart from the Herrmann-esque passages the real gems are those tense diner cues. The whole sequence is a masterclass of building paranoia. The music in the scene kind of works the same way as Fielding's Escape from Alcatraz in that the music is constantantly gnawing and prodding away at you, wearing you down until finally, you break!.
Great stuff.
