Of the ones available, I'll go with:

THE SECRET OF NIMH
MacARTHUR
THE OTHER
RUDY
POWDER

This, of course, does not include scores with lost tapes (IN HARM'S WAY, THE CHAIRMAN, QB VII, UNDER FIRE, etc) or ones with no release at all.

Well I consulted my two Goldsmith threads here to remind myself of what there was to choose from and came up with the following two lists:

Top 5 Goldsmiths I'd like to see expanded for which tapes aren't confirmed to be lost:
1. The Ghost and the Darkness
2. The Secret of NIMH
3. High Velocity
4. Chinatown
5. Anna and the King (I'm assuming that the Varese Fox Box didn't contain everything he wrote for the series, and even if it did, I'd like the work by other composers on it)

Top 5 Goldsmiths which need a complete re-recording because the full tapes are pretty much confirmed lost:
1. The Chairman
2. Under Fire (and I'd like a lot of the synths replaced with acoustic alternatives)
3. Ransom (aka The Terrorists -- this is the WORST sounding Goldsmith OST ever)
4. The Satan Bug (because as Jeff Bond said, "The interesting thing about The Satan Bug is the cues that feature the hard-to-reproduce electronics are already quite well-represented on the FSM album, and in great sound. The big orchestral showpieces in the score don't really feature electronics at the forefront and I'd love to see someone take a crack at rerecording them")
5. Damnation Alley (though this one is strange because supposedly most of the tapes survive *except* for the synthesizer elements, so this might be a case which could be half re-recording for the synths, but still use the original orchestral performance under Goldsmith's baton -- but one way or another, I'd love the complete score to come out!)

Yavar

P.S. and just for the heck of it one more list of 5, for those titles which Varese controls in perpetuity yet seems in no rush to tackle in complete form:

1. Looney Tunes: Back in Action (because the existing album just feels jumbled and incomplete)
2. The Other
3. Gremlins 2
4. Medicine Man
5. The Flint scores (yes I'm cheating)

Our Man Flint
In Like Flint

Will Varese ever release these? They are available, but you have to buy the Twilight Time Blu-rays.

In Harm's Way. If Paramount ever find the tapes!

1. Hollow Man
2. Air Force One
3. Deep Rising
4. The River Wild
5. Looney Tunes Back in Action

A lot of recent releases (Psycho II, Nemesis) as well as the upcoming Dennis The Menace would have made that list!

Yeah I know it may shock some people who write it off but Dennis would've made my (first) list, too! And S*P*Y*S didn't make my top 5 but would definitely make my top 10, so sue me. smile

I should also note that I omitted mention of any totally unreleased Goldsmith scores, because the thread topic is "expanded", but I am dying for a release of his early western scores Black Patch and Face of a Fugitive, and I'd really flip for a first recording of his rejected score to Babe!

I've just put in a call to my lawyer. Expect that lawsuit any day.

Seriously, while "S*P*Y*S" is in my bottom two Goldsmiths, I would never begrudge an expanded release for you. But do you (or does anybody) know if there's more music in the film than the eighteen minutes released by Varèse?
