I wish we had this endless train of releases when it comes to Mike Post & Pete Carpenter.

Darn, since there's no mention of a label in the title, I was hoping this was about 4:3 OLED TVs.

Sorry to sound like a texting tween, but OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea this was remotely an option (I was pretty sure something had been composed, but I thought that, like Babe and Disney's The Kid, it was possible nothing had actually been recorded).

"When Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer."

(On the bus today I saw the "Nakatomi Tower" for the nth time. I heard at the time from people who worked on Die Hard that it was actually a huge pain-in-the-ass to use that building despite it being mere feet from the Fox lot, but all those L.A. real locations make a wonderful film even better).

I'm quite enjoying all the Goldsmith releases, but I would love more Conti! Maybe when the record labels run out of Goldsmith titles to release they'll go back to Conti, Post, Carpenter and others. But what do I know?

I've always felt bad that Goldsmith and Elmer Bernstein received so much rejection of their work late in their respective careers. We fans are so lucky that this stuff is being made available.

While Goldsmith had his fair share of rejected scores I don't think he had to complain about the amount of assignments he got (unlike Bernstein). He also did his fair share of replacing other composers (The River Willd, First Knight, Air Force One). So it's not like his style went out of vogue or something. Till his death he was an in demand composer.

I think very little of so many and often feel things are exaggerated in terms of their importance around here but even I will acknowledge, this is quite the coup.

Who cares. Score was literally shown into the trash. big grin

13th Warrior! Good point I hadn't considered before. Barry, Bernstein, and Goldsmith all had quite a few scores rejected in the last decade and a half of their careers, but Goldsmith also composed a lot of replacement scores after the work of others was rejected. Can anyone think of examples of Barry and Bernstein doing this? Well...I'll answer my own question with one: Barry replaced Bernstein on The Scarlet Letter (both lovely scores though I prefer the Bernstein by far and consider it one of his greatest works ever). Any others for Barry?

Who did he replace on First Knight? I can't remember having heard of this before.

Maurice Jarre.

I guess I didn't mean to imply that having scores rejected made Goldsmith less successful as a composer or less in demand. He, like Bernstein, Barry and Jarre all seemed to keep themselves busy until they expired or retired.

Looking forward to this extra-special bottle cap!

So many to choose from these days.

Speaking of which, I would love to hear a bit more of what Elmer wrote for A River Runs Through It.

You and me both! That theme is just wonderful and I think the whole score was recorded so I really hope someone puts it out.
