    Which composers are great value in interviews?


    Zimmer, only.


    Unless you are ironic, that's far from the truth smile

    Brian Tyler can be a lot of fun unless he has to talk specific score. Goldsmith... he wrote very instinctively he even said that, actually, if he starts thinking, that's very bad.


    Zimmer and Tyler then.


    Really? biggrin Both are dull as dishwater.


    Their interviews? not really; i find them more informative than anyone else.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    As last time, First Knight is being used all over Sky's coverage of the Ryder Cup in this country, being used as the theme for their programmes, little extracts over all the ad break bumpers, all over the highlights reels, etc. And they're using a lifeless re-recording of it (presumably by Silva but it sounds much worse than Prague usually does so I guess it must be from a long time ago, before they became much better). So I think I shall listen to the proper version of it later on.

    Yeah, the City of Prague did a suite re-recording of First Knight on their rather good Warriors Of The Silver Screen album released in 1997.

    Varese also recorded a short suite on their Hollywood '95 album.

    I like the way the Silva recording ends with a very calm choir at the end of Never Surrender aka Arthur's Farewell, the only improvement over JG's original IMO.

    The Varese release from some years back contained both original film scores ( not complete ) and were, IMO, "bitty". This release is the long wanted rerecorded 60's albums that are a far greater and more satisfying listening experience.

    I'm guessing that I'm the only one here this album appeals to.

  1. Goldsmith's "Flint"scores never really appealed to me. Even now that I live in Flintshire, 4 miles from Flint itself.

    Thank you to Mike H at FSM for making me aware of this.

    I wasn't sure where to put this but this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. ( so I put it in the Recent Viewing, JERRY GOLDSMITH and JOHN WILLIAMS threads )

    trumpet player Malcolm McNab on working with Goldsmith, Williams, Herrmann etc...

    For those who are impatient go to the 32 minute mark for the film music talk but the whole thing is great, this guy has great stories and is a fine raconteur.

    I really like his 'big up' for Bruce Broughton too.

    I am in the same boat as Timmer. JG can't hit a homerun on every score.

  4. I think it's a nice little score, even if it's a rather quirky one. But if you know the movie, you also know it's perfectly fine for it. Not every movie needs the full-mode Jerry, and he seemed to know that himself.

    Review of the non-rejected (and rather middling) The River Wild

  5. I love that first paragraph.



    You know, a family member once told me Kevin Bacon was hot. I'm still baffled by that to this day.

    Then I remember this actress who told a story (I think on Conan O'Brien's show) years ago of watching this scene in a movie where you see his penis and she would pause it and excitedly look at it. Again, baffling.

  8. "The Trouble With Angels"


    THE TROUBLE WITH ANGELS
    Composed and Conducted by JERRY GOLDSMITH
    INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 327

    Composer Jerry Goldsmith was 36 when he composed the music for the 1966 Columbia film The Trouble with Angels, coming after his score to A Patch of Blue and right before The Blue Max. He had not scored many comedies to that point, but still had come into a voice of his own. He chose to compose music that acknowledged the girls’ cartoonish antics as well as their rock ’n’ roll era, but tied it all together with a versatile theme, containing an emotional sensitivity that matches the film’s sincere heart.

    This release mark's the premiere appearance of the stereo soundtrack from the original first-generation LP masters, presenting a striking clarity as heard on Intrada's previous release, The Elmer Bernstein AVA Collection. In addition, Sony Pictures provided the complete mono session elements, allowing Intrada to also present the entire score in mono, which includes several key musical sequences not included on the original LP.

    The film was adapted from the 1962 novel Life With Mother Superior, written by New York advertising queen Jane Trahey and based on her own experiences attending a Catholic all-girls school in Chicago. Starring Rosalind Russell as Mother Superior, The Trouble with Angels opens with Mary (Hayley Mills) reluctantly arriving at St. Francis Academy for Girls. On the train she meets fellow classmate Rachel (June Harding), and suggests her first of many “scathingly brilliant ideas." For the next four years, Mary tests the patience of Mother Superior: smoking cigarettes, complaining, putting dish soap in the nuns’ tea, giving tours of the off-limits cloister, and plenty of other miscreant mischief. Gradually, though, Mary’s heart begins to soften.

    CHAIN REACTION: The Deluxe Edition
    Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
    Music Composed and Conducted by Jerry Goldsmith

    Nobody wrote action music like Jerry Goldsmith. His entire career is filled with scores in each era that saw Jerry truly writing and then rewriting the book when it came to action scoring. Of course, he defined and redefined many more genres than action, but it’s his great rhythmic action writing that gets a workout in this 1996 score for 20th Century Fox’s Chain Reaction. For one, the cue Ice Chase is very clearly an “it could only be Jerry” kind of cue. More than doubling the length of the original soundtrack release, we are thrilled to present this greatly expanded Deluxe Edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s Chain Reaction.

    Chain Reaction (1996) was directed by Andrew Davis and stars Keanu Reeves, Morgan Freeman, Rachel Weisz, Fred Ward, Kevin Dunn and Brian Cox. Two members of an advanced energy experiment--a clever machinist and ambitious female physicist--become fugitives from government operatives who've framed them for murder and the bombing of their lab as part of a concerted effort to bury their project's promising energy research.

    CDs will begin shipping the week of October 26.

    I've always enjoyed this one much more than most people seem to. (But half an hour seems plenty.)
  9. I keep reading that the original release wasn't exactly representative of the entire score, that most of the good stuff was left off. So I'm intrigued what that good stuff is.

    There's a good chance I'll be getting this one.

    Another Goldsmith gift! Good heavens. It too is one of my favourites, and possibly my favourite western theme ever written. (A rerecording would be even better... still, beggars/choosers.)
  11. One of Goldsmith's ever best themes, and I hope now it much improved sound quality. Great re release. Brother, better pick this one up quickly wink
