If there's anything we know well, it's holy grail wishlists being chopped up due to legal rights and uncooperative studios ... we know that this will be an expanded release of something thought to be forever gone. The smart money seems to be on ... Goldsmith's THE WIND AND THE LION (please!) ...
The soundtrack gods (here, Intrada and FSM) have answered! Oh Jesus glory be, they have answered.Amazing
news today from Intrada.
They're rereleasing THE WIND AND THE LION
! What's more, they're giving it the most regal, deluxe treatment possible. On the first disc, Goldsmith's muscular score in chronological order, remastered from the original three-track masters. On the second disc, a redux of the original LP presentation, plus a smattering of source cues.
On a personal note, I've been after this score for years, since the original Intrada pressing went out of print. I've lost many an ebay auction in recent months. Now, I look upon that fondly. I've got exactly what I always wanted. Fucking glorious.
For anyone not familiar with the score, it's Goldsmith at his epic best, with a stately main theme and thunderous action music. It's highly, highly recommended.
I'm so fucking psyched for this.
