SHADOW, THE (2CD)

Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume ISC 204
Date: 1994
Time: 2:15:05
Tracks: 42
World premiere 2-CD release of complete Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack to Russall Mulcahy film with Alec Baldwin as famed and flawed crime fighter, co-starring John Lone, Penelope Ann Miller, Ian McKellen, Peter Boyle. Dark, edged action plus stunning period design inspire Goldsmith to create one of his most involved, exciting (and longest) scores of his later career. Powerful French horn main theme imposes but is mere stepping stone to ferocious action music, mysterious ideas, tender love theme. Latter melody is especially pretty on piano, amongst composer's most beautiful - and barely heard from on original 1994 album. Action cues get spotlight, particularly Throughout second half of score. Perhaps standing tallest is powerhouse fight music amidst "The Mirrors". Terrific sequence was scored twice with two different approaches to violent confrontation. Neither cue was on original album! Unused version plays first, has never been heard since actual sessions. Picture version follows in roaring fashion. Many other action cues make world premiere release. Highlights here include "The Clouded Mind", "Nice Tie", "Fight Like A Man". In 1994, Arista label released mere 30 minutes of score plus admittedly dynamic song "Original Sin" sung by Taylor Dayne and other Shadow souvenirs. All 1994 album contents appear on Intrada 2-CD set as well, following complete 85-minute score presentation. Entire score mastered from original 48-track digital session elements as mixed by Bruce Botnick, stored in beautiful condition in Universal vaults. Through courtesy of Sony, virtually every note recorded at sessions appears in dynamic stereo audio as well asafore-mentioned Arista tracks. Authoritative notes by Jeff Bond and rich graphics offering both original album artwork plus all-new design prepared by Joe Sikoryak complete dramatic package. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    Jerry Goldsmith’s score for The Shadow is one of his longest. As such, this premiere presentation of the complete score represents one of the most substantial restorations of a Goldsmith soundtrack ever, illuminated by the fact that just 30 minutes of the full 85-minute score appeared on the original 1994 soundtrack album.

    To present this dynamic work in full, we were given access to the entire vault of original 48-track digital session elements plus the multi-track film mixes and live two-track session mixes and remixes made by Bruce Botnick after the recording sessions were held, all courtesy of Universal Studios. With everything in hand, a complete restoration was launched, climaxed by our discovery of an entire alternate final showdown sequence (“The Mirrors”) that has never been heard beyond those original recording sessions.

    We also are including the source cues recorded at the scoring sessions as well as the entire original soundtrack album, which, in addition to the aforementioned 30 minutes of score, also features the sensational “Original Sin (Theme From The Shadow),” performed by Taylor Dayne.

    This is an important score from Goldsmith, with thrilling action music, dark and dramatic motifs, cues on an epic scale and, at the center, a very tender love theme. However, towering above all is the powerful, wide-interval main theme, often heard in French horns, a vibrant theme made all the more crisp and dynamic courtesy the recording talents of Goldsmith’s longtime mixer Bruce Botnick. So sit back and enjoy all of… well… who knows?
