Okay, I’ve got a heap of news to get through tonight. Firstly, a company called Intrada is releasing a 2-CD set of the Alien soundtrack on November 19th.
“Intrada 2-CD set offers world premiere complete release of Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack to legendary Ridley Scott sci-fi horror movie. Every note of composer’s intense, terrifying masterwork appears in dynamic stereo sound from newly-discovered actual 1” multi-track session masters! Generous set has complete score as originally intended, all re-scored sequences & alternates, demo mixes showcasing unusual sounds of serpent, didjeridu, giant conch plus original 1979 LP assembly, also fully remixed, remastered!
Deluxe booklet offers definitive behind-the-scenes look at score controversy plus track-by-track analysis with slates, scoring changes, recording dates, more. The final word on ALIEN comes courtesy of Universal Music Group, 20th Century Fox, ace album producers Michael Matessino & Nick Redman plus enthusiastic crew of Intrada. Remember: in space no one can hear you scream! Lionel Newman conducts National Philharmonic Orchestra.”
More details such as the soundtrack listing and price can be found on their website. Thanks to John Chambers for the news.
