On this Memorial Day, all of us here at Intrada mourn the loss of 100,000 American lives to COVID-19. We also mourn for all of those past lives lost in the name of freedom and liberty in the U.S. You have paid the highest price. Your sacrifice can not be forgotten.
Western action hits the musical trail this week… courtesy Intrada’s newest soundtrack CD. Burt Lancaster stars, Robert Aldrich directs, Universal Pictures presents, Frank De Vol scores. 1972 is the year, Ulzana’s Raid is the picture, excitement is the keynote! Check back here Monday eve, listen to the sound samples, peruse the contents, consider adding it to your collection. And continue staying safe. We’ll get through this together.
Staying safe continues to be the common greeting/parting these days. Let it continue to be. This coming Tuesday brings sheltered (and unsheltered) listeners another new Intrada release, and a great one it is. Alongside it are a pair of long out-of-stock titles. New is the expanded (by 20 minutes) CD of John Williams’ evocative slice of Americana, 1984’s The River, starring Mel Gibson and Sissy Spacek. Mark Rydell directed, reuniting with Williams after The Reivers, The Cowboys and Cinderella Liberty. Returning to our shelves and perhaps landing on yours as well are two of Intrada’s best-selling expanded editions: Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Chinatown, both top drawer scores by respectively Alan Silvestri and Jerry Goldsmith. Visit us here on Tuesday the 5th and order one, two or maybe even all three of the releases. You’ll be happy you did. Yep… and stay safe.
Two cool releases are on our April 21 docket. Pending limited business hours and non-essential freight deliveries, we look forward to offering for musical comfort the world premiere release of Jerry Goldsmith’s early comedic effort for Take Her, She’s Mine, a 1963 James Stewart movie for 20th Century Fox. Goldsmith fans convinced this one would never happen should be tickled! For James Horner’s audience, and the larger public that swooned over it, Legends Of The Fall arrives in a newly-remastered and expanded 2-CD set. I mention, just for fun, this score happens to be my own personal favorite Horner effort. More emotional themes than you can shake a stick at! Artwork, contents and sound samples for both releases should be available here this coming Monday eve. Stay safe!
Jerry Goldsmith’s restored Morituri docks here next week, amidst the ever-evolving pandemic that cripples our nation and the world around us. While our release contains the same stereo contents as the previous release on FSM, the entire score has been remastered for improved audio and is lengthened - by one minute - to restore previous judicious trims and edits. We are maintaining reduced hours due to COVID-19 and local restrictions during the crisis but orders are welcome and will be filled as quickly as we are able. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be posted this coming Monday the 23rd. Everyone stay indoors as much as possible and be safe!
