Just to nitpick a bit, Jerry Goldsmith's The Stripper was not "the first of his collaborations with director Franklin J. Schaffner" -- it was the first time he scored a feature film by Schaffner, but I believe they met collaborating more than once on live television programs in the 50s (see also: John Frankenheimer and several others)

That said... isn't it kind of crazy and wonderful that new expanded editions of Goldsmith scores for his very first Schaffner feature (The Stripper from LLL) and his very last Schaffner feature (Lionheart from Varese) were announced only a day apart?

Good point, should have been first "feature" collaboration. It is fun that the first and last Jerry/Franklin scores get new editions back to back. Am curious as to how much more of SPYS there is, wish they could have included the John Scott score from the UK version. (I've considered buying the UK DVD just to have it; of course, I'd need a Region Free player again.).

But then why would you put John Scott's score on a CD titled "Goldsmith at 20th, Volume 3?"

Well, obviously you wouldn't put a John Scott score on a CD titled "Goldsmith at 20th Vol. 3" - but otherwise the first full CD of SPYS would seem like the most natural place (though who knows what the rights issues are like).
