2 DAYS IN THE VALLEY (UNUSED SCORE)

Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 198
Date: 1996
Tracks: 20
Time = 46:58

World premiere release of unused Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack for quirky John Herzfeld crime thriller set in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley, featuring dream-cast that includes Charlize Theron, James Spader, Teri Hatcher, Danny Aiello, Jeff Daniels, Marsha Mason, Eric Stoltz, Paul Mazursky. Multiple characters, numerous twists, turns in murder tale inspire Goldsmith to anchor score with overall theme for warm trumpet over reflective strings in "Chinatown" vein, associated with lonely Teddy. From there, composer touches on broad Italian color for Dosmo, sinister suspense for shady Lee, throbbing rhythmic ostinatos for impending action. When all is said and done, warm trumpet theme returns to bring score to perfectly satisfying close. Neat highlight: surrounded by cold, sliding strings, score has inspired use of chimes to reflect Lee's use of stopwatch to give victims one minute before death. During post-production, Goldsmith's moody orchestral score was sadly dropped in favor of less-suspenseful, rock-oriented work by Anthony Marinelli. Goldsmith's unused score presented here direct from original two-track digital session mixes made by Bruce Botnick, courtesy of Paramount Pictures. Smoky booklet art design, informative notes by Jeff Bond complete handsome package. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

Samples sound great.

And the release of a rejected score by Intrada gives me even more hope that a certain other rejected score is on its way.

Hmm... I'm not at all familiar with this work and I'm not quite sure what to make of it from the samples. Can anyone more familiar with this work comment on its quality? How does it rank compared with some other of Jerry's 90s scores?

And Maleficio, may I ask what the other rejected score to which you refer is?

Chris.

This is a must have for any Jerry Fan! It's a cross between Chinatown and LA Confidential. If you like that Jerry sound, you will like this!

Just listening to these lush, splendid clips reminds what a voice we've lost and what a wasteland we're in.

What was the reason for the rejection of the score anyway? Was it an editing thing, a studio thing? I don't remember. An odd movie. Worth seeing if only for a kick ass chick fight.

Awesome. I tracked this score back into the film. Gotta re-post them on YouTube.

Second.

And this is good news. Finally, this fantastic score receives professional treatment.

Probably it was junked because Pulp Fiction had just come out, so the studio wanted a "hip" collection of songs instead of a traditional score.

Anyways, I'll be glad to replace my b00t at long last. smile

Perhaps the film makers realized that using a Jerry Goldsmith score for this film would have been like putting lipstick on a pig. A dandy score IMO. This goes on my wish list along with the remastered STUDS LONIGAN, a swell JG duo to look forward to.

MV is right, it is something of a cross between Chinatown and LA Confidential. Add to that some Italian flavored cues thrown in here and there.

Time to give the b@@t (actually mp3 download), the old boot!

It has always amazed me with as much negative feeling there is about BOOTLEGS here (yes, I am bold enough to spell the word correctly), so many of you here have them!!! I do not buy them or support bootlegs. I might have one, but that depends on if you count the Perseverance release of SLIPSTREAM as one! I bought it under the assumption that it was a legitimate release and will not play it again until I am sure it is legitimate.
