Speaking of Jack Nitzsche. I know it is off topic but anyway I just came from a discussion on Facebook regarding The Exorcist. Someone there told me that the two minute cue/track Iraqi is the complete Jack Nitzsche score. Is that correct? If so then that must be the world`s shortest score to any movie? Even beating Elmer Bernstein`s An American Werewolf in London.
Very beautiful and sensual score! I will never get tired of listening to her. It is very unfortunate that this release does NOT have a complete score. But, it's good that at least it is have. Many thanks to Mr. Taxton and everyone involved in this release!
What's exactly missing?
I seem to recall including all the cues that were on the masters as I recall
The intention with this release was to preserve the composer's original album assembly. And I selected some additional bonus tracks that I felt would compliment the reissue of this score at the time, especially the main title music, which had long been one of my holy grails.
