listening to the samples still and I am so excited for Friends of Eddie Coyle getting a CD score release... and 3 Days of the Condor is Icing on the cake. I just wish Criterion would upgrade this title to BLU.

Total masterpiece! I ordered this fabulous double header on the spot!
It's a dream come true: unbelievable.



"They put your hand in a drawer... then somebody kicks the drawer shut. Ever hear bones breaking?
Just like a man snapping a shingle. Hurts like a bastard".
—Eddie Coyle to Jackie Brown culled from The Friends of Eddie Coyle.

Is CONDOR complete? Was the album a re-recording? Just wondering why the added tracks that were in the movie aren't integrated into the album in film-order.

Not familiar with Eddie Coyle, but I am freaking loving these samples (the movie looks interesting too, I added it to my Netflix queue), and it's paired with an expanded and remastered edition of an old favorite. I'm all about this release.

Yikes! Three announcements and 4CDs in one day, all including at least one totally unreleased score by Grusin, Previn and Goldsmith! Exquisite torture.

Try to space them better next time. Ordered.

No joke - this morning I was streaming The Friends of Eddie Coyle and listening to Grusin's music and wondering if there is a soundtrack for Three Days of The Condor. This is great - thumbs up!

Condor is just excellent, prime 70's paranoia movie making. Redford at his everyman best . A good slimy Cliff Robertson. And Max VonSydow...sublime.

The score has some of that easy funk 70's jazz and some good suspense music as well. The movie is dialogue driven, so, no huge action cues.

And that last scene is chilling.



I am just overjoyed to get this.

Terrific double-header! THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR is one of my favourite Grusin scores. I haven't seen THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE in a long time, but I still remember Grusin's low-key, atmospheric and chilly touch - with haunting guitar effects like in THE YAKUZA maybe?

I was wondering too about what Last Child asked a few posts above about CONDOR. The normal approach would have been to add the additional tracks in film order, but the wording on the blurb leads me to the conclusion (wrong?) that the original album was not a re-recording, and that the few additional tracks are mostly either the complete versions of the occasionally abridged cues released originally, or source cues (some not by Grusin). So if the original album contained abridged cues from the original soundtrack recording, then I imagine the logical decision was to put the complete versions as part of the bonus tracks at the end along with the source pieces. Just guessing.

Great release anyway.

These are pretty much the scores I "Race into the burning house to save after my wife and cat are already out safely."

In listening to the 3DOC, I'm reminded how I described The Yakuza as this score's "Funkier Asian cousin", or something like that. However, in hearing these samples--I never bought the previous Condor release--I have to say that 3DOC holds its own in the funkness department.

Can't wait for this one to arrive (cue "Mr. Connection" as I make the long walk to the mailbox.

Eddie Coyle is simply a stunning surprise--I'm absolutely thrilled it's out there now. I consider myself Eddie Coyle and all you '70s guys--my friends. Oh, wait....

BTW, "Eddie Coyle" is a bleak, drably-photographed (in a good way), and superbly acted masterwork that never got its due until Criterion, that is. It's a quintessentially early '70s downbeat character study that's nowhere to be found in today's films.

It'll be great to talk '70s scores again with the three of you. wink
