A new release needs a new thread, not a necrobump. The previous thread turned into an advert for a bootleg.

And this is why it was better to wait for a legitimate release rather than purchasing that Harkit effort. Huzzah!

Why would anyone pick-up a Harkit release *ever*?

I wonder if any Tristan Cary fans will be aware of this. On discography already. Did early doctor who and quarter mass and the pit.

What does this score sound like? Being a Goldsmith fan never heard this one.

Perhaps those who do no want to hunt for a good sounding LP and transfer it. Many of the Harkit that I have since many years have still not been released from master tapes. I'm thinking Georges Garvarentz and Jacques Loussier here for instance.

I think it is the style of scores such as "In Like Flint," "Warning Shot," and "The Prize." (That Austin Powers, heeey Babay! kind of music.)

Shows you what happens when Roger spills the beans days in advance -- nobody's talking about it! (Or maybe it's just the Labor Day weekend.)

Anyway, I'm excited about this one. A groovy, inventive Goldsmith from the '60s, and it's been years since I've played my crackly LP.

Music Composed and Conducted by JERRY GOLDSMITH
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 250

For the 1968 film Sebastian, composer Jerry Goldsmith wrote one of his most charming and distinctive scores. Goldsmith was perhaps less known for comedies and while he had scored numerous films with romantic elements, Sebastian may have been his first out-and-out romance. Goldsmith responded to the challenge by creating a score that not only fully embraced the style of late 1960s pop music, but also reflected the mathematical sophistication of the character of Sebastian and his code-breaking work. Goldsmith took some inspiration from J.S. Bach and the Baroque musical era, an approach that was a perfect analogue to the intellectual exercise of translating coded language. As the film moves towards its suspense-driven climax, Goldsmith’s score leaves the romantic theme behind for moodier, more dramatic passages.

For 45 years the Dot Records LP has been the only way to hear this music. Although once thought lost, a lengthy search yielded the original three- and four-track session masters for the record album, which had been assembled in Hollywood in January 1968. While the Dot album was a brief 25 minutes in length, album producer Tom Mack managed to encapsulate all of Goldsmith’s thematic material. For this CD, a brand new two-track stereo mix was made, and the original album now appears complete—presented in crisp, beautiful audio (tracks 1–10). Premiering as tracks 11–32 is a program of Goldsmith’s chronological score as heard in the film itself, restored by from the monaural music stem. The last 12 tracks of this album present the entire 18-plus minutes of variations of Tristram Cary's Sputnik Code material that he created using different mixes and recording speeds.

Dirk Bogarde starred as Sebastian, a mildly eccentric but brilliant cryptographer working for Britain’s chief of intelligence (John Gielgud) in London at the height of the Cold War. Sebastian attracts and oversees an army of 100 analysts—all women—who work under his direction breaking down Chinese and Russian codes. Impetuous Rebecca Howard (Susannah York) nearly runs down Sebastian on the Oxford campus one day, and Sebastian quickly tests her on her ability to rearrange words and letters. He then invites her to apply for a job. Romantic sparks begin to fly between Sebastian and Becky. When one of Sebastian’s veteran code breakers lets her leftist politics flag her as a security risk, Sebastian resigns and pushes Becky away—but a year later he’s called back into service to decode a vital enemy satellite broadcast, and in the process reunites with Becky.

Forgive my ignorance but what is meant by a "music stem"?

Is this the music as actually dubbed on to the film, and therefore subject to edits, fade-ins and fade-outs as in the movie, or is it still the pure, as-recorded music, just reduced to mono?

I ask purely for education, it does not affect my decision to buy.

Wiki says:

In sound mixing for film, the preparation of stems is a common stratagem to facilitate the final mix. Dialogue, music and sound effects, called "D-M-E", are brought to the final mix as separate stems. Using stem mixing, the dialogue can easily be replaced by a foreign language version, the effects can easily be adapted to different mono, stereo and surround systems, and the music can be changed to fit the desired emotional response. If the music and effects stems are sent to another production facility for foreign dialogue replacement, these non-dialogue stems are called "M&E".[1][2][3] The dialogue stem is used by itself when editing various scenes together to construct a trailer of the film; after this some music and effects are mixed in to form a cohesive sequence.[4]
Therefore the stem appears to be the music track before editing and adjustment of sound levels etc takes place.

I'm sure there are experts here who can give further clarification!
