Such an awesome cover.

This is going to be the most epic release to do for Omni. I cannot even fathom how many pages this one will exceed.

I can't read music very well--I can SORT OF follow along. I have been watching transcription videos on Youtube and find them fascinating. I was debating picking up the Total Recall Omni score but the cost was a little much for something I can barely understand.


Still...this is REALLY tempting. This score in particular is so detailed. Do any other non-music reading folks buy these? Would be curious to hear some reviews from the musically illiterate.

Are these from the original scores or are they by-ear take-downs?

Not that it matters. I'm just curious.

Transcribed from original sketches/manuscripts.

I don't know if it will have any value to you if you don't read music nor understand orchestration. Omni is really intended for other composers for the most part in order to study what the masters did. Not saying that anyone else is excluded from buying but they aren't cheap acquisitions.

I suppose completionists or fans of Goldsmith or Star Trek might want it as a memento. There is usually some nice detailed notes/analysis at the beginning of these books where they highlight motives or themes. I have Total Recall and The Matrix and value both of them immensely

Not a composer (well any more anyway) but I do love looking at the orchestrations and 'reading' along with the score as I listen.

Fair. I was only mentioning that buying this book, which I’m told will be more
Expensive than previous Omni releases because of its size, will be a significant expense and if one doesn’t read music, it might not be that valuable compared to someone who is familiar with the vernacular

David, no analysis this time — book is pretty big already (473 pages).

You can find plenty of analysis in this thesis by Cameron Patrick we've hosted at the site, with Cameron's kind permission, for many years!

The postage to Europe for these is prohibitively expensive; some time ago, I ordered a few scores from Omni, and the scores itself are well done and printed. Of all the film scores where I would want to read the score, this one may be the number one, so I might order it.

Concur.

I am curious, given the cites to what I presume was a manuscript of Preston Neal Jones's "Return to Tomorrow", if anyone has cross-referenced the cited pages to that of the 2014 published work.

What a treat! Thank you Lukas, this is the kind of stuff that keeps me coming to this forum. I particularly liked the break down of all of the percussion used in the score. I had no idea that Boobams were a thing--I always just thought they were really high rototoms. Also cool that Johnny Williams did some sessions with Jerry early in their respective careers. I had no idea!

Buying a book with nothing but sheet music is like buying a book with nothing but Egyptian hieroglyphics to me.

I'm more than glad for this Omni edition.
Honestly manuscripts (whoever the copyist was) were not that readable

Well yes and no. While you might not appreciate the melodic or harmonic content, you can still get an appreciation for the orchestration and which instruments were used for what part.
