Does Starship Troopers meet the criteria? If so, that's at the top of my list.

It meets every criterion but "Goldsmith."

I would probably buy all of them, sucker that I am, though my finger might not let me click on "BUY NOW" for an expanded "Angie."

That said, the only ones that I would buy excitedly would be the "Flint" scores and "The Other." "Planet of the Apes" is one of my all-time favorites, but either I'm used to the sound quality or else I just don't think it's that bad. Maybe I just think the somewhat pinched, dry sound is part of the point.

I honestly don't think "the powers that be" at Varèse (actually a very small company with very few powers) need any insight to prioritize, and this forum can be very misleading about enthusiasm that translates into purchases anyway. They certainly know (and have demonstrated by their recent releases) that Goldsmith is popular. But (as I know you know, Yavar) it's not simply a matter of "What's next?" There are complications, even for scores they own the rights to. We fans have our wants, yes, but they have their needs. (For instance, I was discussing a certain popular series with a soundtrack producer, one where the fans say "This before more that." But just pragmatically, the tapes for "more that" were already available and digitized, where the tapes for "this" needed cataloguing and digitizing… so "more that" came first.)

Anyway, I'm coming off as a pedant (a word only used by pedants), so I'll shut up now. This thread should be fun, anyway. So I leave you with "Bring on the Flints!"

I want all of the unreleased Goldsmith scores in a boxed set, re-mastered and complete. As one says; " kill one bird.........."

I'm afraid that won't ever happen, because even though Varese controls album rights, they still have to license the additional music on each of these releases from the studios themselves, and the titles they control come from many various studios.

If they wanted to, I guess they could do a second "Goldsmith at Fox Box" but this time bigger and complete scores (like Herrmann at Fox) rather than the sort of grab bag they did the first time. But I doubt they'll do that either, frankly. Maybe they'd consider doing another franchise box set since they did the Nightmare on Elm Street series: perhaps a remastered reissue of all the complete Planet of the Apes scores, since they control the two Goldsmiths in perpetuity and no one else controls the others in perpetuity (at least not the original series of five). Another possibility that would excite me more: a complete Omen scores box set, giving them the excuse to include the cues missing from their DEs of The Omen and The Final Conflict and put Michael Mattessino onto fixing the sound of the film tracks for Damien: Omen II. They could even throw in complete versions of Scheffer's Omen IV: The Awakening and Beltrami's score for the remake, since they also control both of those two in perpetuity. Here's hoping that happens!

I would like to see an encore edition of MAC ARTHUR. I missed it the first time around.

I missed it too but I'd rather get a Deluxe Edition of MacArthur, with the original album remastered PLUS the complete score as recorded for the film. It's originally an MCA album which Varese only licensed so there's no reason it couldn't come from Intrada instead of them, however.

A possible redo of The Mephisto Waltz and The Other, along with Raggedy Man. That should do it for me.

An Intrada release would be preferred. I agree.

Small Soldiers, definitely, before any other.

Then Hollow Man, Leviathan, The 13th Warrior, and Timeline in no particular order.

But my number 1 most wanted Goldsmith is Intrada territory: Mulan.

Mr. Baseball is the only one of those which is Varese-controlled. smile And FYI Goldsmith only wrote a short one minute cue for Flaming Star, confirmed by Michael Mattesino on this very board. It is included in the Twilight Time iso score.

1. The Other - I agree, one of Goldsmith's finest low profile scores, and not represented by the film very well, with several important cues not used.

2. The Mephisto Waltz - The existing release is missing some piano layers. They'd have to be located, or accurately re-recorded. Goldsmith's piano instructor from his youth performed them, supposedly. The Main Title was most effected.

3. Omen Trilogy - It really seemed like they deliberately held back about 10% of the scores for a future release.

4. Planet of the Apes - Depends on the degree to which the sound can be improved. I would consider this to be Goldsmith's signature work, so only the best will do.

5. Lionheart - The frustrating separate releases previously would be greatly improved with a single chronological release. And the sound quality could use some modern tweeking.

6. Hollow Man - I actually thought this was one of his best late career scores, and deserves the deluxe treatment.

7. Everything else. of course.

This thread makes me realise that I already have, on CD, pretty much EVERY Goldsmith score I ever wanted. With the expansions I wanted already expanded.
Nice!
