The Goldsmith releases keep pouring in, which means we've got yet another Soundtrack Spotlight for you! This time, we're examining a particularly thrilling Goldsmith premiere: Intrada's new release of the rejected score for the 1992 film The Public Eye. Your humble hosts Yavar and David are joined by the album's liner notes writer Frank DeWald, who analyzes the score from a purely musical perspective, and Intrada's Douglass Fake, who provides some thoughts on how the music might have worked in relation to the film for which it was written. Among the other topics of discussion: the contrasts between Goldsmith's music and Mark Isham's replacement score, the distinctive instrumental choices (eliminating brass, while employing double bass, triangle, and light electronic touches) Goldsmith made on this score, Frank's approach to writing liner notes, the other Goldsmith efforts this score's main theme has appeared in, what we know about why the score was rejected, and more. As usual, you'll hear plenty of illustrative excerpts from the new album along the way. This is music that will be brand-new to most Goldsmith fans, so don't miss this revealing snapshot of an important new release!
