Our chefs are hard at work in the kitchen, experimenting with various aural seasonings and editing techniques as they prepare to serve our next regular episode. In the meantime, however, please enjoy this delicious apertif: a brief, entertaining interview with film score reconstructionist (and friend of the show) Leigh Phillips, who fills us in on the status of a potential Thriller: Volume 3 Kickstarter, reveals which Thriller scores would likely be included on that album, talks about his work reconstructing Jerry Goldsmith's score for Damnation Alley, reveals his favorite recent Goldsmith album releases, and more! Plus, be sure to stay tuned for that regular episode, in which Leigh will give us his expert analysis of Goldsmith's score for the Thriller installment Mr. George. Enjoy!
