SHADOW, THE (2CD)



Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 204
Date: 1994
Tracks: 42
Time = 135:05

World premiere 2-CD release of complete Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack to Russall Mulcahy film with Alec Baldwin as famed and flawed crime fighter, co-starring John Lone, Penelope Ann Miller, Ian McKellen, Peter Boyle. Dark, edged action plus stunning period design inspire Goldsmith to create one of his most involved, exciting (and longest) scores of his later career. Powerful French horn main theme imposes but is mere stepping stone to ferocious action music, mysterious ideas, tender love theme. Latter melody is especially pretty on piano, amongst composer's most beautiful - and barely heard from on original 1994 album. Action cues get spotlight, particularly Throughout second half of score. Perhaps standing tallest is powerhouse fight music amidst "The Mirrors". Terrific sequence was scored twice with two different approaches to violent confrontation. Neither cue was on original album! Unused version plays first, has never been heard since actual sessions. Picture version follows in roaring fashion. Many other action cues make world premiere release. Highlights here include "The Clouded Mind", "Nice Tie", "Fight Like A Man". In 1994, Arista label released mere 30 minutes of score plus admittedly dynamic song "Original Sin" sung by Taylor Dayne and other Shadow souvenirs. All 1994 album contents appear on Intrada 2-CD set as well, following complete 85-minute score presentation. Entire score mastered from original 48-track digital session elements as mixed by Bruce Botnick, stored in beautiful condition in Universal vaults. Through courtesy of Sony, virtually every note recorded at sessions appears in dynamic stereo audio as well asafore-mentioned Arista tracks. Authoritative notes by Jeff Bond and rich graphics offering both original album artwork plus all-new design prepared by Joe Sikoryak complete dramatic package. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

Died and gone to heaven! Superb!

One of my favourite Goldsmith scores of the 90s. Note perfect. 85 mins of purely, unadulterated, entertainment.

Ummm...

I assume Taylor Dayne's name is spelled correctly on the actual CD...?!

Tremendous.

Ordered it about an hour ago, waiting for fulfillment ... but aren't we all ? wink

Luckily, looks like someone is going to buy my Bruce Broughton/The Presidio CD, so that'll just about cover the cost of picking this one up. Sweet big grin

HELL! YEAH! To finally have the track "Fight Like A Man," particularly the second half scoring the confrontation between the Shadow and Shiwan Khan in the hotel ballroom. Yes, I'm very excited for this! big grin And I'm guessing that "Wild Drums" might be the cool percussion that plays when Lamont is first brought into the temple to see the Tulku.

Although with the price tag and having just gotten LLL's new B:TAS, it's sadly gotta wait awhile until I can pick it up. But thankfully it's not "limited," so it should be safe for a bit.

Same on my end, too. I just picked up Batman so this'll have to wait. But it will be mine! smile

Ordered THE SHADOW along with ROBIN AND MARIAN, which inexplicably hasn't found its way into my collection until now. Looking very much forward to both.

So much amazing music is going to be on this release. Thank you Intrada and team for releasing this score in all its expanded glory, this has truly made my day.

Sure they do. They just don't announce the limitation restrictions anymore, in order to head off the mad rush and the angry fans who miss out when demand for a title snowballs and it disappears within a day or two.

Too expensive. Should be only $24.95 since one disc is pretty much the original album.

Like FSM's STAR TREK III.



Okay, bitch session over. I"ll most likely order it from SAE.


Great job Doug and INTRADA Team! Thanks! You always do Jerry, justice.

You know what I meant. Will they sell the title indefinitely? No. Will you be able to pick up this title two months from now. More than likely yes. smile
