Show Notes

Soundtrack Spotlight ho! With only a few days left to order the latest physical CD edition, Douglass Fake of Intrada Records talks to Jens and Yavar about Jerry Goldsmith's wonderful London Symphony Orchestra re-recording of the vibrant western score Rio Conchos. Over the course of nearly 90 minutes, Doug discusses the motivation behind offering a new digital version of this album, the audio tweaks between it and the previous two issues, the story of pairing Jerry with the LSO for the first time, the decision to add Jerry's masterful The Artist Who Did Not Want to Paint to the album, sitting next to Jerry's father Morris at the connected LSO live concert, the challenges of financing ambitious projects like this one,  the benefits of having Jerry's frequent collaborator Bruce Botnick onboard, the differences between these performances and the original film performances, and much more! This one is full of wonderful memories and illuminating stories, so don't miss it!
