Still waiting on SMALL SOLDIERS. Sixteen years, this summer.

What's the thinking here? 'A complete release of a Jerry Goldsmith score to a Joe Dante movie? That would never sell!'

Inexcusable doesn't even scratch the surface of how to best describe this.


Small Soldiers is a fantastic, energetic and robust score, it seems often overlooked.
It continued the pattern of excellent scores out of the Goldsmith Dante collaboration.
I love everything they did together.

It's been even longer since Gremlins 2... I'd like to see that ahead of Small Soliders, just 'cause I love the Gremlins Rag so much!

I wonder if Mulan is too much to hope for. But if the new Disney soundtrack series (inaugurated by an expanded Lion King) is successful, I suppose they'll be getting around to Mulan for its anniversary in two or three years.

I think the Disney "expanded series" finally puts the nail in the coffin for any Intrada animated expansions on CD. They were never part of the deal to begin with. This pretty much confirms that.

I still think it depends on how "big" the title is. Intrada did get The Black Cauldron and more recently, the first Tinker Bell. Both had previous releases (though The Black Cauldron was a re-recording and not the original tracks which were premiered by Intrada, and Tinker Bell only had about 10 minutes of McNeely's work on a largely song-dominated CD).

You're right that Mulan *probably* qualifies as a big title, but who knows? I'm sure we'll see an expansion of Broughton's The Rescuers Down Under from Intrada before we see it from the new Disney series, for example, and that is technically an Animated Classic just as much as Mulan is.

My response is in your answer. wink Black Cauldron was a different recording and Tinker Bell had a specially made suite on the song compilation. Intrada produced neither of those orchestrations on their two releases.

I really hoped Intrada would get these titles. But in all honesty, as long as they do get out, either by Disney or Intrada I'll be a happy camper.

Ah...but it was the *film* recording that Intrada released so still pretty significant to me that Disney was willing to let them do it!

P.S. Yes I want NIMH too! smile

You're going to keep doing that even after it gets released, aren't you? smile Yes, I'm excited for that one too.

I seem to recall people did the same with Alien and Spartacus years back...I guess I understand them still doing it for Spartacus!

Actually there are many Goldsmith scores I still want complete, expanded, but I think "Small Soldiers" is a must have.

I would love a complete "The Other" with great(better) sound.

Well I'm late in updating this but it's certainly exciting news and worth mentioning! The unexpanded Goldsmith 90s scores are rapidly dwindling (at least those not put out by Varese and probably owned by them in perpetuity).

Removed from the main post: "Deep Rising (Hollywood Records --> Disney) -- not sure if this is one many would clamor for but it'd be Intrada territory only. I guess Varese has also dealt with Disney but if they can't be even bothered to release complete versions of all the great 90s scores they own perpetuity rights to why would they bother licensing this?"

While I'm surprised that this was the first of the three Hollywood Records albums for Intrada to expand, Powder and especially The Ghost and the Darkness being much bigger fan favorites, I for one am ecstatic to see this and it means the other two are most likely on their way!

From those not owned by Varese, The Ghost and the Darkness is my last holy grail. So many cool stuff was left of the album. Also remember the music was more aggresive in the film.

The River Wild would also be good, but only cause I don't own the original release.

While I would buy an expanded The Mummy, it's not very high on my list. The original release contains almost all of the highlights.

As for the Varese releases, the ones I would love to see are Small Soldiers, The Haunting and L.A. Confidential. Here's hoping to see come club releases soon

While they weren't exactly expanded, I thought this thread deserved a bump due to two important recent Goldsmith reissues:

First, Kritzerland put out a new version of the original Rio Conchos recording, painstakingly restored to stereo (except for three cues) by Michael Mattessino. This is a major restoration and though there was no new music to include the sound is vastly improved over the prior FSM (mostly mono) release! 1200 copies promptly sold out from Kritzerland but as of this writing it can still be had from other online stores like SAE and Intrada.

Second, Intrada has given us the first official CD issue of the two Flint album recordings (Our Man Flint, In Like Flint). Again, there's no "new" music per se, but both of these were unique and distinct from the film recordings which Varese premiered in the mid-90s. The last time they'd been out was in the late 80s on cassette and LP, but surprisingly not CD, so this is an important premiere for them and Intrada was finally able to locate the original master tapes of the sessions so they sound amazing (far superior to the Varese release, which as mentioned was a separate recording anyway). This is also something of a milestone because if I'm not mistaken, these were the last remaining unique LP recordings of Goldsmith's which hadn't made it to CD yet (not counting a foreign bootleg which was almost certainly mastered from LP).

I had written in the main post: "Our Man Flint / In Like Flint -- the Varese release was not complete and according to the folks at Intrada, Varese keep the rights to the original film recordings but the two LP recordings are still owned by UMG and Doug or Roger said Intrada will be putting those out eventually. Hopefully Varese will follow suit with the film recordings, but if they don't at least we have the complete scores preserved, isolated on Twilight Time Blu-rays." I have modified this since all that remains unreleased on CD are the film recordings now.

I wonder if we'll get any more significant Goldsmith releases before the end of the year. Maybe Varese will get off their butts and start giving us some Goldsmith they control, like complete versions of The Other and these two Flint scores, since the restoration work was already done by Mike Mattessino for the Twilight Time Blu-ray isolated tracks. Not to mention all the great 90s Goldsmith scores Varese controls in perpetuity as well...
