Link...

Jesus Christ, Jens.

Jens does have a...particularly special...relationship to that score, it's true. But I frankly think it's pretty brilliant myself (even if it wouldn't quite make my top 40) and I really can't fathom the disdain it gets from so many Goldsmith fans.

When Yavar was soliciting the rest of the Odyssey gang for interview questions, I made a point of sending him nothing but Link questions, from Carolco's involvement cutting down the film to the underlying philosophy behind the composition. A lot of them didn't make it in the finished episode because Mike turned out to not have been privy to everything that happened on that production, but there's still plenty of Link content to be had.

I would have never forgiven Yavar if he hadn't asked about Link.

With all respect to my colleague Jason Drury (and I make sure to give him a shout-out or two in my interview), our style and content at the Goldsmith Odyssey is very different from the show he did, which was more of a radio program with interview bits interspersed...

Drury's interview was fine but yeah, it was more of a Q&A than a conversation and it came off more like two people reading a transcript. Looking forward to this one.

Yes I want to shout out both Jens *and* David for providing me with some excellent interview questions this time 'round. Usually the Goldsmith Odyssey team is content to just let me do my thing whenever I solicit them for questions in advance, but this time the two of them each contributed a handful of really excellent questions and I'm so grateful to them for doing so even though, as Jens noted, several ended up being cut from the final interview due to Mike not being privy to some info.

I guess earlier me was turned off by the drum machine and some of my own loopy expectations due to its poster art suggesting horror (which the film may well intend to be; I haven't seen the thing). Jens definitely gave that one a boost for me, contextualizing it as semi-Joe Dantean in its sound. That thought had not occurred to me Dude, and I gave it another whirl. It's a lot of fun! Whimsical, even.

If I shelved my scores by vibe, I'd have to move this one away from Magic and The Haunting, past Executive Decision, and nearer to the area where I'd be keeping Dennis the Menace and The First Great Train Robbery.

Yeah, it's definitely a fun listen, despite my previous hatred of it.

When will you post your thorough take on "The Invaders" from The Twilight Zone?
Thanks.

Great Job, Yavar. Interesting bit on Eric Tomlinson. Sad he had falling out with Goldsmith and Horner. William also didn't work with him again. Hope you can get Bruce Botnick in a 2 session show someday?

Wow! Yavar, these interviews are getting better and better. Congrats on yet another stunning one!

Next stop: Bruce Botnick

P.S. Link is a great score

Goldsmith went into detail in a Keyboard Magazine interview back in the mid-1980s about the difficulties at the Supergirl session. He did not names names, but he revealed he and "the mixer" had arguments about how best to record the synths. Goldsmith finally relented and agreed to let the mixer do it his way -- which resulted not only in the phasing, but a speaker catching fire as well.
