2005 release of Rambo 3 sounds fine to me. I love the score but it's going to be a pretty stunning remastering job that tempts me into buying again. Great release for those who don't have it.

It's the remastered sound and the correct placement of "Another Time" that's selling it to me!

Well I haven't bought RAMBO III since purchasing the original 74 minute Intrada CD 30 years ago. Or 29 years ago. Well, 30 or nearly 30 anyway.

So I don't think I need to be guilty about revisiting.

The only thing is, after 30 years, that original CD feels like an old friend. And I do prefer its cover.

Cheers

So is the alternate "Another Time" and "the Joust" segment not going to be included? Seems silly to leave it off even if you have to cross the 80 minute mark. They did it for Baby' Day Out razz

Doesn’t Intrada announce Monday evening for the Tuesday release or am I crazy?

You're not crazy.

Guess not. It's a single disc. $19.99. No alternate versions. Just the re-mastered score in film sequence. Personally, I'm OK with it. I'm just happy to get this chance to finish out the Goldsmith RAMBO trilogy big grin

1. Carolco logo and 20. Find Cover


There is a bit of new material somewhere around the "Find Cover" track, but I'm not sure if "Find Cover" is the new bit. There's also a new track title before "Find Cover" (0:51) called "Running Wild" (0:30) and before those two tracks "Going Down" now runs 1:04 instead of its previous length of 1:54. Basic math would indicate that the previous version of "Going Down" (1:54) has been split into "Going Down" (1:04) and "Find Cover" (0:51), since that yields a combined track time of 1:55. But who knows? Regardless, there is about 0:30 of new score in that area of the CD, and maybe it's the track "Running Wild."

I'm confused about the tracks being "presented for the first time in film sequence." The main reason why is that "Night Fight" (6:51) runs the exact same time it has previously, but the end of the film version of "Night Fight" actually included what has previously been released as the second half of "Going Down", making me think the film sequence would yield a longer version of "Night Fight." So in this case, would "film sequence" of a track not necessarily mean the same thing as "film version" of a track? The new version of "Going Down" (shorter length) may be different than previously (we don't know yet), but since "Night Fight" is the exact same running time, it appears to be the same.

Intrada says "Also of note: Architectural device of new four-note building block that launches new theme." While the "new theme" that is launched is indeed new to the series, the "new four-note building block" is not new, is it? It goes back as far as the first film ("Mountain Hunt") and is almost reprised again in the second film ("Revenge") -- it's the same suspense idea/execution, only in the second film it's pared down to three notes.

None of these are complaints whatsoever. Just curiosities. I'm a massive fan of this score and was just throwing out a few questions that I was wondering about. No matter what, I am thrilled about this release and very much looking forward to it. The stuff I mentioned above is not as important to me as the actual music itself and how it sounds; again, I was just curious as someone who has loved this score for decades and has seen the movie more times than I care to admit.

The most significant re-sequencing is moving "Another Time" to the appropriate place (it previously opened the album)

RAMBO III - So new version has 25 tracks; original has 23 tracks. Carolco logo/Find Cover included but noticed that track 21:The Showdown 22: Final battle has NOW been edited into one track on the NEW version - A creative edited decision? ** Running Wild track seems to be an all new find! The complete difference still between both is an astonishing 1 minute & 19 seconds!

This means temptation to buy again...& again cos is Jerry Goldsmith's finest action classic!

Never heard the score before so sampling it on Youtube. I'm liking it, though the electronic bits are annoying. big grin

For me it's a fantastic score I've played the hell out of - over various releases - through the years.

So, whatever, it worked on me and I dipped - again roll eyes

... and "Running Wild" ... you're the second person who mentioned the two "new tracks" but strangely didn't seem to notice the third. Odd.

I think it's because the new tracks (or at least one of them) may not be "new" but sections of music separated out of "The Long Climb" which now has a shorter duration.

yeah! One of my Holy Grails! I missed the previous issues, so this time I'm in. No vocal theme, very sad (again) frown

Ordered and got my shipping confirmation. Thanks Intrada!

Is it strange that I can't wait to get a soundtrack I've bought four times before (including audio cassette)?

Have not heard this one yet... my two cents:

I found Intrada's RAMBO II to be one of their best sounding productions, that one sounds just about perfect! If RAMBO III is like that, then I am all for this new one. Too bad they couldn't get the songs, but alas it's still a win.

If there is some extra material that would not fit on the CD, (like the album edit of "Preparations" on the old Scotti Bros version), perhaps those could be added as bonus on another CD. FSM used to do this from time to time. THE EGYPTIAN comes to mind.
It's a good way to make it available if there's not enough material to justify pressing a 2nd CD.

I wouldn't be interested in the songs.
