Excellent John! Although I'm most jealous that you have a 'De-Luxe edition' of Damien: Omen II coming. My daughter and her cousin became obsessed with the opening titles music and used to play it on their mobile phones at family dinner parties! Her cousin even wanted it played at his wedding but his fiancé unsurprisingly vetoed the idea. I have an old Jerry Goldsmith compilation album 2CD set (one of the series performed by the Prague Philharmonic) and I remember that the original 'Total Recall' extract was one of the highlights. I don't know the others although remember thinking highly of 'Chinatown' as a movie when it first came out.

Very cool, Jeffrey. 8) I try my best to find the original soundtracks. You need to get Rambo: First Blood. You really do. It’s outstanding. Other Goldsmith soundtracks I’m looking at: Alien, Logan’s Run, and Poltergeist.

Bought one more Goldsmith soundtrack:



I think this will be it for awhile as now I have 10 Goldsmith soundtracks on the way.

Greetings!

I have been somewhat overwhelmed by assorted things recently, and so have had little time to drop by GMG.

This came up a few days ago: great news!

Sergei Bondarchuk's digitally restored, four-movie version of War and Peace, with the great score by the late Vyacheslav Ovchinnikov, will be available as of June 25th on Blu-Ray thanks to Criterion.

Perhaps this restored version will catalyze interest in Vyacheslav Ovchinnikov's oeuvre in general, both concert works and the film scores.

I very much hope so Leo - that release is great news.

I have all the first three Alien scores. Alien (Goldsmith) and Aliens (Horner) are the best, especially 'Alien'. The other great score that I know by Goldsmith (I don't know 'Rambo' but will track it down) is 'Capricorn One', so I hope that is on your list John.
