Absolutely awesome, thank you SO MUCH! A major gap in the Williams discography is now filled!

I wonder why Robert Evans didn't ask Goldsmith to do BLACK SUNDAY. He sings his praises to the heavens about his score saving CHINATOWN in THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE....

I watch my Black Sunday DVD every Superbowl Sunday. It seems like the perfect day to watch it.

Maybe because Evans knew ahead of time that the CD release would be close to some other Goldsmith grails, so he thought - better let someone else do it to prevent grumblings of there being too many Goldsmith scores released. Just a hunch.

Anyway, absolutely fantastic release and ordered within seconds of seeing the announcement. Congratulations Lukas and Co. Although I do worry about the state of your business once all these scores are released. If things keep going the way they are now we'll be getting Trevor Rabin limited releases by the end of the year - and no-one wants to see that. (No disrespect to Trevor Rabin fans).

Pretty big presumptive 33 year psychic hunch, there!

Maybe he did. Maybe he wanted somebody different, or was just impressed by Williams Maybe this was Frankenheimer's call. Goldsmith didn't score Evans' post-"Chinatown"/pre-"Black Sunday" film "Marathon Man," either. In fact, he only scored one other Evans-produced film ("Players") after "Chinatown." Whatever the reason, I'm guessing it's mundane.

It was probably about as mundane as a little score called JAWS. Must have had an influence.

Frankenheimer worked many times with Goldsmith, before and after BLACK SUNDAY.

I'd love to ask Evans about the reasoning.

I'm sure you're absolutely right.

Tripping through more of the samples this afternoon, one of them stopped me in my tracks and made me to say to myself: 'Self, THIS is why I love John Williams!'

Nurse Dahlia/Kabakov’s Card/The Hypodermic
http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/store/MP3/1220/07_Nurse_Dahlia_Kabakov_s_Card_The_Hypodermic.mp3

Deceptively simple, beautifully melodic, elegant and menacing, just gives me goosebumps.

Can't wait to get my paws on this baby!

Never heard this score- worth a blind buy?

This would be a lot easier to accommodate if I hadn't just placed an order for Islands In The Stream. This seems like an odd/unfair request considering the label released another title just a few days ago. SAE's shipping costs are pretty absurd for single discs, so unfortunately I'm going to have to put this off for a few weeks.


Indeed, and while it wasn't Islands, it was Blue Max plus a couple of others (both FSMs though one was the unlimited STII) that I had help off. With Moviemusic's $1 shipping, I like to buy three or more at a time, and right now beyond the fact I have the Rosza Box and a couple other things just payed for, PLUS the $61 in a week and a half, buying this one TOO is just not in the cards for probably at the very least a month.

Listen to the clips.

If you want my opinion, yes.

...and Goldsmth had a history with Frankenheimer going back all the way to the early days of television.
All you really have to do is go back in time. When BLACK SUNDAY was made John Williams wasn't the John Williams we know. With his hits being THE POSIEDON ADVENTURE, EARTHQUAKE, JAWS and TOWERING INFERNO he was simply the king of the disaster movie. And if anyone remembers how BLACK SUNDAY was sold, it was as a disaster movie. You, of course, wanted him for any such film.
