For anyone who is Facebook friends with Leigh Phillips, go look at his “Story” sometime in the next five hours or so while it’s available. It’s just a short clip of Bill Stromberg conducting the jail break action cue, and let me tell you the performance from him and the RSNO is on FIRE — they nailed it! It’s got all the excitement and vitality of the original film recording, but it is better conducted and performed to be honest (just as I felt about Stromberg’s Mysterious Island compared with the original).

Can’t wait to hear the whole thing on album.

Update from Doug:Recording sessions have wrapped!)

10/19/2021


Treats for Jerry Goldsmith fans. Two of them! Our recording sessions with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in Glasgow went beautifully. Simply awesome! Coming up ahead you’ll be able to enjoy listening (at last!) to Goldsmith’s very first feature film score, complete in a world class performance. Black Patch turns out to be a much more involved and varied score than the 1957 film soundtrack, often buried under dialog and sound effects, suggests. Standing on its own, the architecture reveals the structural genius Goldsmith applied to his dramatic music, right from the first bar. Speaking of which, here’s a really cool delight: the Warner Bros. film opens with a brooding b&w outdoor shot and Goldsmith’s score begins in a very low key manner. That’s what we all have known and become used to. But he actually scored a powerful opening fanfare for orchestra that he titled “Warner Bros. Presents” (1m1) to accompany the opening image. This has never been heard before and it makes for a sensational opener to the score, introducing one of his key themes right off the bat. Wow! And then there’s that crucial love theme, heard in its lengthiest treatment during “Love Reunited Part 2” (3m1) which is one of the composer’s most haunting. And for those fans wondering about that piece of saloon music that plays under the opening credits, yes, it is by Goldsmith and is titled “Player Piano (Main Titles)” (1m3). And yes again, we are including it. A particular treat is hearing the complexities and ferocious writing in Goldsmith’s very first action cue for a movie: “The Fight” (5m1) with numerous devices that became signatures, including mixed-meter rhythms, staccato snare drums and zigzagging bars of full orchestra excitement.


Ahhhh… on to that second treat. And what a treat! 1972’s The Man, starring James Earl Jones and written by Rod Serling, opens with one of Goldsmith’s most arresting and declamatory cues of his entire career. Called “Douglass Dilman (Main Titles)”, Goldsmith wrote this prelude in a soaring, stentorian vernacular that would have made Aaron Copland proud. Fortissimo brass and percussion in the lead! And for anyone familiar with Goldsmith’s magnificent “The Monument” from Logan’s Run (1976), revel in the gestation of that piece in this score’s “The Lincoln Memorial”, illuminating the same stirring images! And following that music is “The Oval Office’, with imposing music framing all of the portraits of past presidents. What a score!


Both scores will be presented complete, in terrific readings by the orchestra under maestro William T. Stromberg. Using the composer’s actual original scores which survived intact, supervised by Leigh Phillips, who also masterfully reconstructed The Man, everything was recorded and mixed by ace scoring engineer Simon Rhodes, the extraordinary audio wizard behind so many classic James Horner scores as well as our own Dial M For Murder recording. We’ll keep everyone posted as this fabulous release is readied for release. As they say… stay tuned!

That's a wonderful update - and you can just feel Doug's beaming excitement. Thanks for sharing.


Searching for beaming gif, and man I had to share this - full of just as much joy as Doug's post!

Hmm… I’m going to have to ask Doug about that Main Title, labeled “anon” on the cue sheets… but maybe he asked Jerry himself at some point?

Could a kickstarter campaign for "In Harm's Away" (especially the electronic portions) be not far behind?

78 were at the $200 Thank You credit in the booklet tier

plus Two Intrada CDs $29.99 [presumably 29.99 each]

I can imagine how a blind date with the shipping manager would be: AWKWARD.

Regardless, you'd think they'd include an actual eye patch at that rate, preferably autographed.




Montgomery looks like he's saying, "That orchestra better get my theme right or I'll shoot!"

Well In Harm's Way IS Douglass Fake's single favorite Goldsmith score I'm fairly sure, so if anyone would do it despite the (slight) expansion already existing, it would be him!

Coming from you David, as someone who's produced multiple fine and faithful re-recordings yourself, that means a lot!

UPDATE: Roger just posted the new extended version of the finale cue from Black Patch, showcasing the score's great central theme for the title character!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/129145902/black-patch-the-man-jerry-goldsmith-new-recording/posts/3335798

I'm pretty certain they also recorded the original film version, but this works great as a sort of concert arrangement, which IMO a theme this good really deserves!
