Rare Jerry Goldsmith Score Finally Released on CD

For all those like me, whose movie obsession includes a great affinity for film music, there's some great news for you, courtesy of Film Score Monthly. For the first time on an American CD, Jerry Goldsmith's eclectic score for the 1983 flick The Twilight Zone: The Movie has been released.

It's a very limited edition of 3,000 copies, but this is a big deal for one of horror filmdom's most sought-after scores, which hasn't seen the light of day domestically since the original LP release 25 years ago. From then till now, a 2000 European bootleg CD was the only other way for fans to hear one of the master's best pieces of music.

So get yourself over to Screen Archives Entertainment's site for a complete track list and some sample audio clips. Oh yeah, and you can order it there, too.

This is a wonderful release with a very cool design. There's so much great horror music being released right now. A few weeks back it was Henry Mancinis NIGHTWING, yesterday it was DRACULA, A.D. 1972 by Mike Vickers and next week we're going to get THE DUNWICH HORROR by Les Baxter. It's great... but expensive!

WOW, I am a Les Baxter FANATIC. Thanks for the heads up!

THE DUNWICH HORROR is up for ordering now from La-La Land Records (and the usual soundtrack dealers). And yesterday Intrada released James Horners SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. Wow! This is pretty much horror soundtrack heaven right now.
