And all of yours happen to be Varese. Be patient, they'll get around to them I'm sure. smile

I'm still waiting for "The Mummy" (with full End Credits) and "Supergirl" (full End Credits with the synth swooshes).

I watched The Mummy earlier this week and the End Credits music is just a cut and paste job, a very poor one at that.

I compared the contents of the CD against the film's cue sheet. A few short cues were, I think, combined, but I think either everything is there, or everything except maybe 2 minutes or so. I suspect it's a case of the score being fairly short, so everything (or almost everything) got included on the CD.


Thanks for the info. How'd you get ahold of the official cue sheet? Anyway, when I get around to it I'll incorporate this post of yours into the first post, though I'll still leave Criminal Law on the list unless it is confirmed that the existing program is indeed the complete score and not even missing 2 minutes. smile

No offense to those who like it, but an expanded Criminal Law will be the first true mark that the soundtrack album business has died.

Well, I imagine that if it does happen it will be one of the very last to be expanded to complete form. Mr. Baseball will happen first. smile

That said, it's not a bad composition; I just wish it had been performed by an orchestra.

Along those lines, though, I'd just point out that Varese has released Runaway, another not-too-popular all-synth score by Goldsmith, no less than THREE times! Their original issue, then their complete Deluxe Edition which sold out of its 2000 copies, and then an Encore Edition of their Deluxe Edition at another 2000 copies! Insane! If there's a market for that many thousand copies of Runaway, I'm guessing there's a market for a Deluxe Criminal Law...

Good points. I actually think Runaway has some very good action cues that would be interesting to hear performed by an orchestra. I'm not completely anti-synth, but I do believe that an orchestra could work wonders with this score.

Smitty, you may find Leigh Phillips's response in this thread to be interesting:

I for one would love an orchestral re-recording project of tackling substantial suites from all three Goldsmith synth scores, so they can be heard in a new light. Jerry did "orchestrate" them, after all, so they should translate well.

What about a new rerecording of Legend.
Using the Original synth from Jerry combining a big orchestra and choir.

I'm not interested in a rerecording, but the original complete score to LEGEND, is my most wanted Goldsmith right now..

I started this thread almost four years ago, in mid 2012. At the time, I had separated out all the titles that Varese Sarabande controlled in perpetuity, because it seemed somewhat hopeless that any (or at least, many) of them would ever get expanded treatment since no one else besides Varese could do it and they didn't seem interested.

About one and a half years later, at the end of 2013, there was a glimmer of hope: a definitive, complete version of Star Trek: Nemesis came out, surprisingly produced by Lukas Kendall and with notes by Jeff Bond, both of whom had never worked with Varese before, if I'm not mistaken. But perhaps that was just an exception, because it was a Star Trek score. Paramount themselves were said to want all of the Trek scores released in complete form. This was the thought that stuck in the heads of Goldsmith nuts over the next year, as in 2014 Varese finally gave us the premiere of The List of Adrian Messenger, but no expansion of titles they permanently controlled.

Then, less than a year ago, more hope: Varese released Gremlins 2 in complete form. Oh, but maybe there was just a drive to complete franchises -- they also put out Die Hard 2 so the complete trilogy could be out there (as they later put out Back to the Future 3). Nope! Later in the year we got Chain Reaction in complete form, and just in the past couple months we got Executive Decision with the same treatment. It feels to me like the dam has broken, and there will (hopefully) be a steady outpouring of Varese expanding their in-perpetuity titles, as long as sales are successful.

With this in mind, I have decided to completely revamp my initial post in this thread, incorporating all of the Varese in-perpetuity titles within the main detailed chronological list. I have also taken the liberty to include links to DeputyRiley's excellent "Complete Score Breakdowns" for titles he tackled, as well as the three (so far) breakdowns I did for earlier unreleased Goldsmith scores. Have a look at the updates and let me know if you have any feedback!

Also, I recently conducted an unofficial poll for what Varese in-perpetuity Goldsmith titles people would like them to tackle next. Small Soldiers was the clear winner, with Air Force One a solid runner up. If interested, you can see the results tallied near the end of this thread:

I'm of course very excited to find out what's next from Varese this year...

Intrada just put out an official complete Chinatown!

I had simply written:
"Chinatown -- after Varese sells out on their current run of 3000 I suspect one of our other fine labels will actually provide a definitive version."

Well, Varese put their release on sale for $13.99 and sold it out last year, and lo and behold, we got a truly definitive release from Intrada. Incredible; so glad this masterwork has been given the treatment it deserves:

It feels like it's been a little while (a whole three months since the last Goldsmith expansion, haha), but it's thankfully time for another update to this thread!

They've been hinting at doing it for years, but Intrada has finally just announced the definitive and truly complete Rambo: First Blood Part II (unless in the future better sources are somehow found for the three cues taken from a promotional cassette):

http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&p=75877&sid=5ae2ddd77016cbb9d4f652b927dae309#p75877

This means we have all three Goldsmith Rambo scores in complete form from them -- won't that look nice on the shelf? I'm guessing this took so long to come out because Intrada was holding out, searching for superior stereo elements for that end credits cue which sadly they couldn't find in the end. Personally, despite the compromised audio I think the unused orchestral end credits is an amazing piece! I really hope it's included as an extra on some future new Tadlow Goldsmith recording so we can have it in the great sound quality it deserves.
