Goodness, a dream come true. Newly recorded Goldsmith scores is there nothing better? NO

I love "Hour of the GUN", but always felt the soundtrack was to short. Fitz has hit a goldmine here! I can't think of any other composer that deserves such respect. Bravo

Well if the rest of the score is like those two tracks, I'm in for this. That theme is great, the type of Goldsmith I tend to really like.

I totally agree with you, Yavar. There is just no stopping James and Prometheus from producing absolutely top-notch re-recordings with the City of Prague PO. And this is just the FIRST in a series of Goldsmith rerecordings!! (... plus THE RED PONY concert suite as a bonus!)

Tadlowmusic has posted 2 clips on You Tube featuring the City of Prague conducted by Nic Raine
1.The Theme of Hour of the Gun 3:24
2.Whose Cattle 3:20

Fantastic sound once again from Prometheus.


Wow. Sounds great. smile

Sounds absolutely superb!! Can't wait!!

The videos sound wonderful. This will be ordered with DUELLO NEL TEXAS (Morricone).

I'll wait to hear this first before getting excited and passing comment. That artwork is dreadful though.


Dreadful?? Hardly- just compelled to Bitch about something.

The clips sound very promising indeed. Maybe we will get ALL our bottle caps yet!

(And look, "informative notes" by our pal Frank K. DeWald---as if he writes any other kind ;-)

While I love my Half Hour of the Gun OST it's going to be good to hear the rest of the score. This looks like a fine start to the series and will most assuredly be ordered.

This is my favorite Goldsmith Western score and cudos to James for picking this one to re-record...just for me! wink

Anyway, looking forward to hearing it as it looks to be a preview of more Tadlow Goldsmith things to come.

I remember Goldsmith being asked the question at a concert at the Barbican if he'd consider recording an album or a series with his best 'Western' music, and he answered it would be a dream project.
I guess his wish comes true

Me too! Of all the gems in the Goldsmith western playbook, this is the brightest one, fo me. I truly love this score, have for 45 years. I also think Goldsmith loved this theme too - can't recall any other instance where he arranged and recorded a special "concert" version of a main theme (although there were a few "love theme" versions).

The samples are teriffic - what a treat to hear all the instrumental details. Can't wait to hear the entire disc.

I've honestly found Hour of the Gun to be the weakest of Goldsmith's westerns, but I'm basing that strictly on how it's presented on the existing album which suffers from pretty dire sound quality and a short run time. Here's hoping the new album is a revelation!

Anyone here get HDNet Movies? They've been showing an absolutely pristine print of HOUR OF THE GUN for the last month. I don't know who holds the rights, but I hope it comes to Blu-ray soon.

You know, that's exactly what I thought, too.

I can...and I think your statement is disrespectful towards a lot of other EQUALLY great composers. I know you dislike Jarre immensely but I'm just as happy with all the (re-)recordings of his work.

That's a nice one! To my ears the Main Theme always sounded like the accompaniment to a secret agent's mission in the Old West - it's not one of Goldsmith's strongest IMHO but it's definitely fun and I think I'll be able to appreciate the score as a whole a lot more this time 'cause the Varese album left me wanting.
