And here is the promised Part 2!



http://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/3142192-odyssey-interviews-nasrollah-davoodi-part-2

Full disclosure: After the opening half hour about Jerry Goldsmith, the character of this installment is very different from the first half, and indeed different from any other Odyssey Interview so far. It is more of a full on film music radio show, with us largely opting to play full pieces for you after Mr. Davoodi introduces them. I would call it a deep dive into Iranian art music...except it barely scratches the surface. But it will give you a sense of the breadth of the nation's music, particularly film music, as eight preeminent composers who worked in film are introduced (nine if you count Andre Hossein, who was from Iran but primarily worked in France). If the only Persian film composer you know is Ramin Djawadi, prepare to have your mind expanded! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the variety of beautiful sounds contained within, and you may discover some new composers to love in the process.

As my father emigrated from Iran, this episode is of particular personal importance to me. I hope everyone enjoys, and I very much look forward to hearing what people think.

For those wondering when our next regular episode will be released, rest assured that we haven't forgotten our primary mission and David is hard at work editing it. smile

Thanks Yavar and company for the wonderful podcasts. I wish I had time to listen to more of them.

If you were still wondering about that violin riff in Hayfork and Billhook, it pops up in slightly modified form in The Spiral Road. See the Burning Village track. I always thought it sounded like a more famous piece of music, but have never placed it.

The regular Goldsmith Odyssey is back, bay-bee!

SHOW NOTES
The Goldsmith Odysseys of this world don't come back. Comebacks are for ordinary podcasts. I don't know, maybe there never was a Goldsmith Odyssey. Maybe it's just the eternal fresh carnation, the eternal grin, the eternal hope. It's a legend. A legend that plays like a podcast. Well, here's to both of 'em: the legend... and the podcast. Within that podcast, your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark examine the General Electric Theater episode "The Legend That Walks Like a Man," and the alternately playful and tender Goldsmith score that accompanies it. Enjoy!

    I really enjoyed this conversation, and I think it's nice to offer folks an Odyssey episode that's only an hour and a half long, after that epic interview most recently!

    Thanks to FSM reader George Gallant for sharing this rare TV episode with us and my friend Brad Wills for helping re-create the GE Theater logo in high quality. And of course, W. David Lichty (aka Lorien) for his expert editing. This is a really good one.

    Yavar

    P.S. Thanks for the tip, A Busy Man! I'll keep my ears open for it. (But have you picked up on the link between The Spiral Road and Looney Tunes: Back in Action?)

    GOLD NUGGETS ARE BACK, bay-bee! smile



    http://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/3459226-gold-nugget-6-expanded-archival-collection

    The Goldsmith Odyssey's latest offering is a special podcast (recorded just this past Saturday!) going over all the wonderful Goldsmith releases we've gotten recently (U.S. Marshals from Varese, Morituri from Intrada, The Swarm from LLL, etc.) and we play samples of our favorite parts of this score and others, while discussing our opinions about each release. It's a pretty fun and informative listen, if I do say so myself, and might be helpful to anyone on the fence about purchasing any of these fine new Goldsmith releases.

    Yavar, you might be slightly interested in this...

    You could make a good case that Jerry Goldsmith is the greatest and most versatile of film composers. Tonight on KPR's Film Music Friday, we'll attempt the impossible -- to distill a 50+ year career of amazing music into just two hours. We'll hear excerpts from Goldsmith's scores for The Omen, Planet of the Apes, Lonely Are the Brave, Star Trek, The Sand Pebbles, Alien, Patton and as many more as we can squeeze into 120 minutes. Tonight at 7pm (CST) on KPR stations. Streaming live at http://kansaspublicradio.org, and you can hear the show on demand at https://kansaspublicradio.org/genres/film-music-fridays.

    Very cool and thanks for sharing! Anyone who makes a point of including Lonely Are the Brave (my favorite Goldsmith feature score, and perhaps favorite film that he scored too) in the lineup deserves the utmost respect and attention. smile

    I've only played the first 2 episodes of the Podcast in sequence which were enjoyable, but I leapt at the opportunity to play your latest Gold Nugget 6 to satisfy my lust for STEREO. I particularly responded to SWARM. Many thanks to all of you.

    I think I'll switch to the Kansas Public Radio for my next Goldsmith foray.

    Yavar, I was going to open a separate thread on this but decided to fold this into your Goldsmith Odyssey area. I pulled a book off the shelf last week as "bathroom reading" to be sampled in small
    chunks (sorry, I couldn't resist it) called UNSOLD TV PILOTS by one Lee Goldberg. This dates back to 1991 and I picked it up a number of years back at Half Price Books.

    Among it's many entries is one for a busted pilot that supposedly was aired in July of '83 from Lorimar productions called DUSTY, starring Saul Rubinek and Gerald S. O'Loughlin. To quote the entry:

    "Saul Rubinek is a Los Angeles cabbie who dreams of being a private eye--and gets his chance when he picks up a legendary detective (Gerald S. O'Loughlin) and is ordered to 'follow that car.' An uneasy alliance develops, and the cabbie finds himself moonlighting as a P.I."

    The score is credited to Jerry Goldsmith. Have you ever heard of this one? I haven't. The Lee Rich/Lorimar credit seems to lend it credence.

    I continue to enjoy THE GOLDSMITH ODYSSEY.

In the first half of their conversation, Neil talks about how he got his start in the world of film music album production thanks to Mike Matessino, working with Lukas Kendall at FSM, the differences between titles like "producer" and "editor," the unique challenges of working with various analog and digital music sources, working on Goldsmith album releases like The Swarm, The Challenge, and The Blue Max, and much more! It's a chat sure to fascinate anyone interested in the album production process. Enjoy, and be sure to check out part two when you're done!

    Who wants seconds? Hot on the heels of our first installment, here's part two of Yavar and David's Odyssey Interview with soundtrack album editor and producer Neil S. Bulk. In this part of the conversation, Neil offers his memories of working on a host of additional Goldsmith scores (Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Total Recall, The Great Train Robbery, and more), discusses why certain scores have an easier time staying in print than others, and details some of the unique music production problems he has solved. If you're a serious soundtrack collector, you won't want to miss the illuminating stories and insights Neil has to offer. Enjoy!

    Wow! It just hit me what you guys are accomplishing. You are not just collecting the minutiae of everything Goldsmith. But by including these portraits of people important to what Goldsmith was, you are making the portrait of Goldsmith himself more fully rounded. I have known Bruce Kimmel, David Newman and Neil Bulk for quite a while but found out tidbits about them from your interviews I never knew. What this amounts to a Jerry Goldsmith Memorial Library that, by the time anyone else even tries to do the same for any other composer, they will be years behind in trying to catch up. Awesome. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving musical genius.

    Actually, you're a good pair, you two. Your interviews are both essential and genial. Episodes 1 & 2 were the best show-prep I could find, then a week before our call - BAM Christmas! Another one.

    I hope you guys catch up at least yearly, because what pleasant chats you have.

    Yes, I too used those as show prep and very much enjoyed them. Well done! Did my best to not be too redundant with them, either (although it's not as if I could skip anything Goldsmith-related).

    Thanks for that! It certainly helps that Neil and I are friends in the outside world - I often have to trim down our recorded chats due to sidebar topics!

    Also, and with apologies to Yavar for hijacking his thread, but here is one more interview episode with Neil on my podcast, from 2019:

    I think Neil and I could probably spend the entirety of our chats also talking solely about Goldsmith!
