It's a beauty. big grin Had a long, tough work day so it was very nice to have this waiting for me at home. It sounds great to me.
There's no new music, though. Some existing has been edited, as Deputy suggested above. Not sure where any extra :30 is coming from, but I was listening around 1:30am so, maybe I missed it. For me it's well worth the purchase since its a score I really love and it'll get a lot of play big grin

I’m thinking of dipping into my reward points for this. I missed it the first time around.

Would have purchased the Rambo trilogy and STV-VI, were it not for the dreaded "Temporarily Out of Stock" on FB, STV-VI...

...will these ever be restocked by Intrada?

Well yes. That's what the word "temporarily" means. But we know that sometimes this can take a while.

I wasn't questioning the meaning of the word. smile However, I should have just inquired as to how long it typically takes Intrada to restock, as they used to just sell out of items and that was it (for the most part).

Thanks for your reply.

I'm sorry if I came off as snarky (which I guess I did).

They do repress these, but with all the labels, it can take months or even years to do so. MV explained why, but I'll do a bad job of recalling it here.

Excuse my nutmeg - I think this came up in an earlier post... but doesn't someone from Intrada usually post an "official" announcement here for new releases? I know that it used to be BasilFSM (Who was he? His profile has been deleted as he is "no longer a member"). Was there some kind of falling out between Intrada and FSM? Why no official announcement for this one?

Anyway, that was a bit nutmeggish of me, but I know what I mean.

Yeah, there is usually an official thread Graham, but it is generally created by the same two or three FSM people.
I think this one got overlooked initially cos it was guessed early and it is a bit of a meh release for many.
Incidentally, I watched The Sentinel this afternoon (recorded off the Horror Channel) and thought of you wink

Cheers Kev, you're probably right about Rambo 3. Not a meh release for me though, since I only have the old Scotti Bros LP from thirty years ago.

And I'm glad you thought of me when you were watching Beverly D'Angelo going cross-eyed whilst having a rummage around in the downstairs department. She told me once - when we were going out together - that she was thinking of me too when filming that scene. Well, she's only human. What did ya think of Gil Mellé's fantastic music? There, I've already given you one adjective to start with.

I had a crush on Beverly D'Angelo when I was a wee lad (and not so wee).
I also used to think that anyone working with Sylvia Miles would have a good chance of kopping off with her.
The film is hysterical at times. Melle's music is both inspired and bonkers..sometimes at the same time.
I miss scores that go apeshit and scream at ya over the dialogue and visuals.
I'm sure I have a mag in the loft that covers the film and it's make-up and FX (Dick Smith..Albert Whitlock?..probably a Cinefantastique?).
Hope you had fun with Beverly D. I know I would have wink

And getting back on point.
I have the Scotti Bros CD, the first Intrada expansion (which sounded quite dull and muddy) and the last expansion/re-issue which sounded glorious by comparison.
I don't need a further upgrade, but hope it sells well for the good folks at Intrada.

Cheers again Kev (by the way, for anyone tuning in late, this is about THE SENTINEL) - I think I have that mag too, not sure if it's Cinefantastique, but it's in my mum's loft. Will recover it when I'm back in the Auld Country when the weather is marginally less shite. And yes Kev, I had a wonderfully intense romantic relationship with Beverly. I was twelve and she was forty-two (although at the time I thought she looked about a hundred). It didn't work out in the end. Thankfully I then fell deeply in love with my classmate Elizabeth Montgomary. Did I tell you about that?

But trying desperately to get back on-topic, your comment about Mellé's score for THE SENTINEL ("inspired and bonkers... I miss scores that go apeshit and scream at ya over the dialogue and visuals") actually reminds me of Goldsmith's scores for the films of George Pee Comotose. I think he's sadly underrated. At least he gave his composers room to let their music breathe and take front stage. THE CASSANDRA CROSSING is a prime example. RAMBO 2 is another. I was going to say that RAMBO 3 is yet another, but I've just checked and that wasn't a Comatose film. In fact I don't think I saw it, but the music (from what was presented on the old Scotti) is absolutely terrific. Looking forward to bagging this one, and I hardly buy anything nowadays.

Agree totally with you about George P Comatose, Graham.
His Goldsmith scored films sound great (the ones you mentioned, plus LEVIATHAN) and he let Bruce Broughton cut loose too (TOMBSTONE & SHADOW CONSPIRACY). TOMBSTONE is crazy brilliant and SHADOW CONSPIRACY has sh!t loads of drums, but doesn't sound like MAN OF STEEL or JUNKie XL smile
I will always remember that Break-Out scene near the beginning of CASSANDRA CROSSING.
As the guy breaks through the glass, and Jerry goes all OMEN bat-sh!t crazy, I remember my sister even saying, while we were watching the film, 'that music is amazing'.
Anyway Graham. That's THE SENTINEL, George P Cosmatos, old love affairs. What else do ya wanna chat about that has nothing to do with Intrada's new RAMBO 3 CD? wink

Yeah Kev, that "Hospital Chase" near the start of Comatose's CASSANDRA CROSSING (if that's the bit you mean - and even if it isn't) is brill. I've said this literally a billion times before, but it's like what Peckinpah would call "a ballet of violence". I watched the scene on YouTube and there are virtually no sound effects even, just Goldsmith's kinetic and aggressive score. I watched it then with the sound off and it was clumsy and unimpressive in the extreme.

I must have told you about when I was working as an extra on ONE MILLION YEARS BC in Lanzarote. I had a short affair with Raquel behind a rock. I remember that I said to her, "Darling Raquel, if you put this shell up to your ear you can hear the sound of the sea. Isn't it romantic?", to which she pointed out, "Eh, we're on a goddam beach, and the sound of the sea is like you know coming from the actual sea, you idiot". And then she dumped me, the cruel and heartless bitch. But I will always love her. Batshit crazy music from Mario Nascimbene too. I remember the Radio Times saying back then, "It's like listening to chalk on a blackboard". I really liked all that clacking stuff.

Yes, Comatose. He let Broughton dominate TOMBSTONE, as you say, and a lot of other things.

A person called Peter MacDonald or something directed RAMBO 3, which I'm not sure I've actually seen, but I can imagine the music being up-front. I'm not that into Jerry's post-1979 scores, so it's really surprising to me that RAMBO 3 is as late as 1988 and it's still great. I'll let you know what I think when I get it.

Gil Mellé was a total genius. So was Basil Kirchin. He was absolutely nuts. Sylvia Miles once forced me to drink her piss. She used to do mad stuff like that all the time.

RAMBO 3 junked a lot of the new Jerry score for re-tracked stuff from RAMBO 2 in the actual film, so plenty of the R3 score is new stuff never heard.
It was a troubled film. I think the Highlander director started off on it, but was sacked during production. Stallone and that MacDonald bloke finished the film, I think.
It's a terrible film. Not even silly enjoyable like the cartoony second one. Just sh!te.
It's my least favourite RAMBO score of the three, but that's only because FB1 is a friggin action masterpiece and RAMBO 2 is also an action m-class score with added tin-foil.
The Intrada disc is a tad overlong and has a few boring/droning synthy JG tracks that he did a lot of during that period. Annoyingly, that cool stick percussion piece at the beginning..I always felt wasn't long enough on the Scotti Bros release, is now too long on the Intrada. They should have let me decide how long to let it run before the orchestra rocks up.

You've put me off Sylvia now and I'm not gonna try and cop off with her anytime in the near future!

Oh no! I'm not going to like it now, if you don't. Yeah, I kind of knew that the film was bollox (I saw bits on the telly), way below FIRST BLOOD (which I actually think is a good film, although my friends deride me for holding that opinion). RAMBO 2 is one I enjoyed as if it was a cartoon, and the music was great. I really liked the cuts on the old Scotti Bros release (of RAMBO 3). The thing about Goldsmith's sequel scores is that they are often more interesting than the previous films because a lot of Goldsmith was ornamentation rather than melody. So in the first of a series he might do a kind of bare bones approach, but in the sequel(s) add to that with increasingly exotic little decorative and intriguing sounds.

Sylvia Miles is now 93. She says that the secret of her longevity is drinking her own piss. That might be off-topic, but at least it's true. Honest. She told me.

I'm suddenly thirsty and in the mood to live to 93. wink

Speaking of RAMBO III, wouldn't a more appropriate title be RAMBO II: FIRST BLOOD PART III?

Wasn't it actually Sarah Miles' that used to like a glass of that?

Only I'm thinking if Sylvia Miles gets to hear of this allegation, she might want to sue... big grin
