Playing it for the 2nd time, and its very enjoyable, now thanks to Quartet I have 2 vocals of the main theme. This one by Englebert Humperdink was a nice bonus.

So is the french version listed as Toi qui regarde la mer (03:13) (performed by Nicoletta) on the Universal Cd NOT included in the Quartet cd ? So I guess I will have to keep the Universal France album too!


I just added the Nicoletta track to the Quartet CD when I put it into iTunes. Right after the Humperdink track.

One of my favourite movies and the score is simply wonderful. I'm so happy to have a copy in my collection.

On another note, does anyone know the origins of this alternative version of the Papillon theme? I know it was posted a while back on this forum but I don't think the question was answered. I always thought that Jerry Goldsmith recorded it as an alternative take and that it would have been included in the Quarter release but alas it was not. I'm guessing that it was not recorded by Jerry Goldsmith then?

Thank you blue15 and George Komar for sharing the info about the alternative Papillon theme. To me it makes for a nice companion to the Jerry Goldsmith score.

As a teen many many years ago I saw Papillon for the first time on home video and immediately fell in love with the movie. It was the first score that I ever purchased. To this day after many years of collecting, it still remains as one of my favourites. A glorious score by Jerry Goldsmith. The Quartet release is fantastic and I hope it goes back in print for those who didn't get the chance to pick it up.

The unused scoring that comes after "Catching Butterflies" is a welcome surprise.

Papillon will always be my favourite Goldsmith score. It has a terrific balance of melodic writing, atonal violent moments, riveting action cues, and some wonderful coloristic orchestrations. A perfect score in my opinion.

That's a great pick, David. IMO Jerry's magnum opus is QBVII -- but I recognize that one thing these two favorite Goldsmith scores of ours have in common is their wide stylistic variety, encompassing so many different things that made Jerry great.

I'm still pinching myself over this one! One of the earliest films/scores that caused me to fall in love with the music of Jerry Goldsmith. An absolutely amazing release from Quartet, and an incredible privilege to work on.
