Oh yeah...I forgot the reason I came back to this thread when I saw PP's post.

That was to update with the information about Quartet's release, which turned out to be a (barely) expanded King Solomon's Mines. Though it only went out of print earlier this year, it is currently fetching high prices on the secondhand market so this was a very worthy reissue, now with Goldsmith's original album arrangement as a bonus and some crossfades removed (and thus, a few seconds of more music).

I'm happy about it but like others somewhat disappointed because they promoted it as being a Goldsmith "expansion" when it's really rather a stretch to describe it that way, at least compared with the previous Prometheus and Intrada issues, both of which featured the complete score.

Still, their new artwork looks great and their booklet will surely be superior since it features John Takis track-by-track liner notes!

I'm still curious to hear what Goldsmith releases this past year people were most thankful for. Ms. Pineapple, have you had a chance to listen to your Goldsmith goodies yet (or at least QB VII)?

I also thought I'd update the thread with the news that Roger at Intrada did confirm a few weeks ago that they had more Goldsmith coming in January:

I wonder what this could be? The Ghost and the Darkness? Hopefully an actual expansion this time at least...

I'm still holding out for Leviathan at some point! Especially since they did Deep Rising this past year, another underwater adventure would be a real treat

And it's The River Wild complete coming in a few days, WITH the rejected Jarre score!

At last another TRUE Goldsmith expansion!

The River Wild is here and more complete than could have been expected! It turns out that not only was Jarre's score simply rejected, but before that multiple cues were rejected which he had to re-write and re-record, and then after the job got passed to Jerry, he had to do the exact same thing! We saw a little of that re-working in the behind the scenes session footage of Fred Karlin's documentary on Goldsmith, but I had no idea there was so many alternates recorded by both composers, with the result that both CDs of Intrada's two disc set are packed to the brim! This must've been a big headache of a project for them and I am eternally grateful for them going the extra mile on this release and giving us everything! This release really couldn't be any better:

Here is what I'd written in the original post:
"The River Wild (RCA --> Sony) -- Given the pattern of releases at LaLaLand, I think this will be one of theirs (and hopefully they'll include Jarre's rejected score). On the other hand I thought LLL would do the similarly Sony-owned Congo and Intrada just put it out so the same might happen with this."

It probably turned out to be Intrada in the end because the film is Universal and while LLL deals with them (ie. Battlestar Galactica to 1941), Intrada has a much stronger and more regular relationship.

Now there are very few 90s scores left that Varese doesn't control in perpetuity, and hopefully we can expect The Ghost and the Darkness and Powder complete from Intrada this year (since the OSTs were released on Disney-owned Hollywood Records, Intrada is the only place to look towards...and there's also a very outside chance they might be allowed to expand Mulan).

It now seems likely that we'll be getting a complete remastered Rambo: First Blood Part II from Intrada at some point in the future. While previously controlled by Silva (as it was for Supergirl and Legend, among other non-Goldsmith scores), Doug recently had the following to say on the Intrada forum:

"It is no longer controlled by Silva." -- with a smiley face, no less!

(scroll to the bottom post of that page)

I suspect Doug has been working on it for a while since in the liner notes for the recent Intrada MAF reissue of the complete First Blood, we were teased with a description of the original orchestral end credits Goldsmith recorded (but which was not included on Silva's expanded release). I'm ecstatic that we will finally get to hear it, as well as the rest of the score in probably much superior sound quality. It's also great that definitive versions of all three Goldsmith Rambo scores will now be out from the same label (cuz I'm anal and like my spines to line up!)

Today seems like a very good day to restart this post... right Yavar?? wink

Personally, I'm excited just by the thought of a *possible* Complete Ghost & Darkness from Intrada, even if nobody has confirmed anything yet...

I'm 100% certain that Intrada will put out The Ghost and the Darkness complete. They already did Deep Rising which was also a Hollywood Records album so we know now that those can be expanded, and Doug specifically said G&tD was on Intrada's radar. It's just possibly a question of whether we'll see it *this* year, but it does seem very likely.

I wonder what unreleased music LLL might put out this year...their 90s options have dwindled considerably but maybe there are some earlier scores they can tackle.
