  2. Announced today (fixed the announcement a little):

    STARGATE SG-1: CHILDREN OF THE GODS - THE FINAL CUT
    DDR635
    $17.95
    Will begin shipping the week of March 26th, 2018

    (BuySoundtrax ordering page)


    Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax Records, will be releasing STARGATE SG-1: CHILDREN OF THE GODS – THE FINAL CUT, featuring music composed by Joel Goldsmith (STARGATE UNIVERSE, STARGATE ATLANTIS, THE UNTOUCHABLES) for the pilot episode of the long running television series developed and produced by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, starring Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge.

    Based on the popular 1994 science fiction film STARGATE, created by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich, STARGATE SG-1 premiered on the Showtime channel in July 1997 and later moved to the SCI FI Channel in June 2002. The story of STARGATE SG-1 began about a year after the events of the theatrical film, when the United States government learns about an ancient alien device, the Stargate, and its ability to access a network of other Stargates on a multitude of other planets. The SG-1 teams, consisting of soldiers from the United States armed services and scientists, were quickly formed to explore the galaxy and and defend Earth against alien threats such as the Goa’uld, the antagonists from the feature film, and other races. The main SG-1 team consisted of Colonel Jack O’Neill (Anderson), Dr. Daniel Jackson (Shanks), Major Samantha Carter (Tapping) and the alien Teal’c (Judge). The series was a ratings success and ran for ten seasons, some 214 episodes. Joel Goldsmith was the primary composer for STARGATE SG-1 and continued to lead the charge when the franchise expanded to include STARGATE: ATLANTIS and STARGATE: UNIVERSE.

    Joel Goldsmith was born on November 19th, 1957, Los Angeles, California, the third of four children of singer Sharon Hennagin and legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith. Since his first cinematic composition, a collaboration with then-newcomer Richard Band on the low-budget science fiction thriller, LASERBLAST (1978), Joel scored a number of feature and television films throughout the 1980s and ‘90s, including the sci-fi series SUPER FORCE (1990), Roland Emmerich’s early sci-fi thriller MOON 44 (1990), and Jim Wynorski’s gentle family comedy, LITTLE MISS MILLIONS (1993). After THE UNTOUCHABLES, Joel went on to score the TV series HAWKEYE (1994), BAD BLOOD (1994, aka VIPER), Jim Wynorski’s VAMPIRELLA (1996), KULL THE CONQUEROR (1997), TV’s WITCHBLADE (2000), HELEN OF TROY and several iterations of the STARGATE TV series (1997-2011). He also provided synthesized sound effects for STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (1979) and composed additional music for STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT (1996). Tragically, Joel passed away at the age of 54 on April 29, 2012, from cancer.

    The first episode of STARGATE SG-1 was titled ‘Children Of The Gods’. Composer Joel Goldsmith wrote a complete score for the episode but the decision was made in post production by MGM to also include selections from the score composed for the 1994 feature film. At the time of the episode’s debut, a soundtrack album was released by Milan Records that was representative of the music used in the episode, which included a portion of Joel’s score along with selections from David Arnold’s score for the feature film, with a running time of nearly 45 minutes. In 2009, producer Brad Wright received permission from MGM, the studio that owns the franchise, to recut ‘Children Of The Gods’ and present it as it was originally intended, which included restoring Joel Goldsmith’s orchestral score. Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax Records, presents STARGATE SG-1: CHILDREN OF THE GODS – THE FINAL CUT, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland, featuring forty minutes of previously unreleased music. The booklet contains liner notes written by series creator and executive producer Brad Wright.


    STARGATE SG-1: CHILDREN OF THE GODS – THE FINAL CUT is a limited edition of 1000 units.

    STARGATE SG-1: CHILDREN OF THE GODS – THE FINAL CUT is available for pre-order at www.buysoundtrax.com and is expected to start shipping the week of March 26th.

  3. Previously MV told us more new James Bond score expansions -- since they did "Die Another Day" 2CD -- would be based upon sales and that EON was watching. We got an update yesterday:

    Just about half way sold out. EON was very happy with the experience and product.

    So, it looks like we may be getting more.

    I've just been reading the Storyteller thread on FSM. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Naxos now the distributor for Varese, and the package values aren't being marked down anymore? People in Europe may get a hefty tax bill from their local customs in order to get their parcel.

    Has anyone in Europe ordered stuff from Varese lately and been hit by customs?

    Busy day of releases. Steiner boxset, Mandel from Intrada, Kaplan from SAE, and LLL's May flyer later.
  10. Yes. From the once-in-a-few-years FSM spin-off label Counterpoint today:

    Counterpoint continues its globe-trotting journey with Sol Kaplan by following up the Australian-set KANGAROO with an adventure that takes place in Argentina: WAY OF A GAUCHO. The 1952 film blends elements of the American West with the wild and untamed scenery of the Argentinian pampas. Kaplan’s score, conducted by Alfred Newman, includes exciting action music and a gorgeous love theme. This new release includes the complete score (plus some deleted cues), beautifully restored by producer Mike Matessino. To learn more, listen to samples and place your order, visit http://www1.screenarchives.com/title_de … -A-GAUCHO/




    The Steiner set from BYU:

    BYU-FMA, Screen Archives Entertainment and Chelsea Rialto Studios are proud to announce the new 3-CD box set CAGED: THE DARK SIDE OF MAX STEINER. This historic album features music from seven films noir composed by Steiner during his Warner Bros. post-war period.

    In addition to CAGED, other classic Steiner scores included are KEY LARGO, THE UNFAITHFUL, FLAMINGO ROAD, BACKFIRE, THE BREAKING POINT, and LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE. These works represent Steiner underscoring psychological drama with alternatingly intense and introspective accompaniment. The CD’s include all of the surviving music from the scores represented, including music not used in the films and alternate tracks featuring Max working the orchestra.

    CAGED has become a cult classic and features Oscar-nominated performances by Eleanor Parker and Hope Emerson, as well as an Oscar-nominated screenplay. Max Steiner’s score brilliantly reflects the harrowing ordeal of a young girl sent to prison. KEY LARGO is John Huston’s film version of the Maxwell Anderson play. Starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson and Lionel Barrymore, the brilliant characterizations are sensitively given further depth by Steiner’s compositions. THE UNFAITHFUL was Warner Bros.’ reworking of their 1940 classic THE LETTER, with Ann Sheridan playing the role originally done by Bette Davis. Max Steiner had written an exotic score for the original and for the updated version he presents a far more urban musical setting. FLAMINGO ROAD is a film noir soap opera and Steiner provides a blowsy score that perfectly fits Joan Crawford’s social-climbing carnival girl. BACKFIRE and THE BREAKING POINT both feature minimal contributions by Max Steiner but LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE is an all-out penny-dreadful musical murder-go-round. Starring Ruth Roman, Richard Todd and Mercedes McCambridge, the film was directed by King Vidor with an acute eye for psychological terror and Steiner does his part admirably to aid in establishing the mood.

    All scores were recorded at Warner Bros. with orchestrations by Murray Cutter and conducted by Max Steiner. In addition to the soundtracks, the box set features a 36 page full-color booklet with essays by James V. D’Arc and Ray Faiola, as well as a generous amount of original photographs and publicity material. Disc mastering by Ray Faiola, Chelsea Rialto Studios. Package design by Jim Titus.

    Great to see it finally get a release outside the FSM box (overexpanded or not).
    I am extremely serious.
  12. A super update from La La Land today at the FSM forum:

    Without giving our 2018 plans away completely, you might want to put your thinking caps on and consider the possibilities of what may come out in the future. Superman IV, according to album producer Mike Matessino, was perfect as is and didn't need to be messed with... and that's all I will say about any other Superman music at this time. smile

  13. I got the sent note from Amazon. The newly remastered versions of STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI will be with me tomorrow. Since I never had an issue with the sound of the remaining three scores I refrained from buying them now. Sadly it will be weeks till I will find time to make in depth comparisons with the original CDs, the Arista/Fox ones and the RCA/Sony ones.
    Beforehand it's great to have a (hopefully) state of the art release of of one of the most famous soundtrack albums of all time and - for the first time - to have the 2LP version of EMPIRE on CD. Their content don't differ much from the Arista/Fox versions though. Also the Arista presentation of JEDI is vastly superior. So I believe the STAR WARS Trilogy Arista versions will remain on my music player.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

  15. FSM update:

    Also, we sold out of the ST:TNG box set. We didn't make the full 5000 we had planned (I can't find my notes as to how many we did make) but can't afford to make any more. The first 12 discs are still available digitally—the rare time when I was able to get those download rights.
