    That's excellent news. The old original sounds awful.

    And that theme is right up there with the great classic themes of Jarre, Barry, Williams, Moross etc as one of the greatest ever written.

  2. So far as I can tell, Gold only scored one episode of "Gunsmoke" -- and it was a good score. You can watch the episode online legally and hear his score now:

  4. The complete score runs to about 79 minutes. Couldn't they have fitted it all onto one CD?

  5. There is quite a bit on the second disc that I either already have in another form or is something I don't want. Depending on the cost of the 2-CD set I may pass and be content with the original release.

    This is what the hell it's about straight from the horses mouth courtesy of the FSM message board.

    "Originally I planned EXODUS as a single CD. Then I was offered the chance to record IT'S A MAD...WORLD and SHIP OF FOOLS by Gold..plus his EXODUS Rhapsody for Cello..

    So, then it was gong to be a short-ish running double CD.

    Then after he EXODUS sessions I found had some 83 minutes of score...just a few too many minutes to fit comfortably on one CD. (The manufacturers still get labels to sign a clearance form that if the time of a CD goes over 76:50 then if there are any faulty CDs it is not the fault of the manufacturer but of the record label..so they will not credit any faulties!!! Just imagine if the manufacturer pressed 3000 faulty CDs....)

    So, then I decided to "go the whole hog" a record a whole load of extras to make both CDs well over an hour each. CD one being about 66 minutes, CD 2 being about 72 minutes.

    This meant making an artistic cut from one CD to the next followng the main action cue "D-Day Bombs".

    It might have be nice to have EXODUS as just one CD minus about 4 or 5 minutes of score...it certainly would have saved me thousands of pounds it cost recording the extras of SCHINDLER'S LIST, CAST A GIANT SHADOW, JUDITH etc...

    and yes, QB VII is the suite I put together for Silva...but as I actually paid for the recording myself they let me licence these tracks... but I did take the opportunity to remaster them..."

    I suppose in this game James Fitzpatrick's decision either way would not please a proportion of the buying public.

    You see, that is the kind of absurdity this obsession with presenting scores C&C leads to. There is one more option that Fitzpatrick seems to have forgotten, which has been used for many decades before this hysteria of having extra last note of the score, namely to make EDITORIAL choices based on your musical knowledge (or - if you do not possess this - get someone who has) and present a pure album experience, and weed out cues that don't add to the listening experience. I'm sure it's nice to have those extra tracks and all, but it's so totally UNNECESSARY. And the CD would have been much cheaper to make AND buy if it was on one CD.
    I am extremely serious.

    Even you have to agree that padding the running time with bonus tracks that have nothing whatsoever to do with either Gold or EXODUS is a bit weird; just because you need to have those 30 seconds of music as the protagonist flushes the toilet?

    But that flushing the toilet music COULD in fact be the best part of the score.

    I'm talking about the bits that don't add anything to the overall experience, let's say an almost verbatim repeat of a theme or some perfunctory, schizophrenic cues. To weed these out instead of spending tens of thousands of dollars on recording pieces of music that have nothing to do with either score or composer - just to pad out the running time - would have seemed so much more sensible to me.

    Yeah, my opinion on C&C is same old, same old. However, this thing with padding out running times with completely unrelated tracks just to have every single second of music of a score, is a brand-new thing. It takes the absurdity one step further! dizzy

    I welcome it. Why don't we LISTEN to those other unrelated cues before we pass judgment huh? Oh, that's right... you're not buying this. Your loss.

    Hey, I've got no problem with the QUALITY of those tracks. They might sound like bloody Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker for that matter! I'm sure they're all fine and dandy. No, I'm just perplexed by the inclusion of them in the first place - a natural(?) consequence of a C&C presentation that went JUST over 1 CD. It's just....crazy.
    I am extremely serious.
  7. Of the bonus tracks is it the cues from Ship of Fools and Judith that are so far unreleased?

    And to people who know better than me, how are the already-available recordings of the rest (e.g., QB VII)?

    I think he knows how important this completeness thing is as a marketing badge at the moment. It's a brand that instantly makes a certain proportion of the buying public go for it, even if they already have a perfectly good release. (Despite your years of - admittedly sensible - protestations on this issue, the words 'complete' and 'not quite complete' push people's buttons in this market.)

    Personally I wish he'd stuck with one disc, and got it around 70 minutes or so. Having said that, I would like to hear his take on the QB VII material. I assume he'd give it less of a dry sound than the original album recording. And it certainly is a score worthy of at least one revisiting.
