From the Manufacturer

World premiere release of complete soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith for Michael Crichton period action tale of gold robbery performed aboard moving train, starring Sean Connery, Donald Sutherland, Lesley-Anne Down.

Though rumored to have been lost forever, Intrada located complete 1/4" two-track stereo session masters made by Eric Tomlinson during London recording sessions, maintained in beautiful condition, courtesy of MGM. This enables first-ever release of numerous cues including all-important action cue "Dead Willy," where frenzied string rhythms, powerful trombone figures provide score with its most ferocious moment. Other new cues offer variants to main theme, additional darker sequences.

Goldsmith also recorded all of his classical source pieces during the sessions and we include those as well. His take on Handel's famed "Music For the Royal Fireworks" is dazzling indeed. Several alternates were present on masters, including early take on classic "The Gold Arrives" set piece, this time with central section spotlighting virtuoso trumpet double-tongue passage. Goldsmith ultimately toned down for final take.

The bonus CD offers U.S. CD premiere of original 1979 soundtrack assembly as produced by Jerry Goldsmith, newly mastered from United Artists album master. Informative notes from Jeff Bond, handsome original campaign art complete exciting package. Jerry Goldsmith conducts the National Symphony Orchestra.

This nicely-priced 2-CD set is part of Intrada MAF catalog of great film scores.
