Yavar, David, Clark, and Jens / Jeff Bond

The good folks at La-La Land Records have released the third volume of their excellent Goldsmith at 20th series, and we're pleased to be able to place this one under the Soundtrack Spotlight! This release pairs Goldsmith's alternately jazzy and tender music for the 1963 drama The Stripper with his quirky, entertaining effort for the 1974 comedy S*P*Y*S. Your humble hosts Yavar, David, Clark, and Jens are joined by Goldsmith expert Jeff Bond (who wrote the liner notes for this album) for a discussion of both scores. In addition, you'll hear thoughts on La-La Land's re-release of The Blue Max (featured on the first Goldsmith at 20th installment), Goldsmith's approach to comedy scoring, the single cue Goldsmith wrote for the 1960 western Flaming Star (included as a bonus track on this release), and more! Whether you're attempting to start a new life after being abandoned by your sleazy manager or engaging in international espionage while evading clumsy assassins, take a break for an hour or so and enjoy this conversation!
