One of the first soundtrack LP's that I had as a kid, and definitely in my top ten Jerry Goldsmith scores.

I was just watching the movie recently and realized that a few cues have still yet to be released. One that stuck out was a brief cue before "The Bees Picnic" where the Durant family first arrives and is watched by a bee (along with its kaleidoscopic point of view). The Prometheus Limited Edition soundtrack has also been out of print for a while, so it would be nice for Intrada or another label to revisit it. Hope the tapes are also still in good condition.

I am down for this title.

I have the Prometheus release - and appreciate it - but there are still cues missing. In addition, Prometheus, as with most of their titles, sounds muffled and compressed. "The Swarm" definitely needs the Intrada Treatment!

I second that, and would find it a treat if Tony Habeeb's liner notes from the 1978 Warner Brothers LP were included. They really are notorious!

You won't have long to wait. It is coming from La La Land Records.

Good to know. All I want and will ever listen to on said new release is the LP presentation.

Not a fan of the additional music?

For some reason I'm not as big a 70s Goldsmith fan as most other people here. I much prefer his 80s/early 90s stuff.

I very much enjoy Goldsmith's '70s output, especially the early and middle parts of the decade. As for The Swarm, the LP presentation is edited to perfection and I think of the rest of the content as merely filler when it comes to album listening. The expected $30 will be quite a bit for just that, but it's worth it.

La La Land might just release the complete score as Prometheus did. Keep your fingers crossed for a two CD set with complete score on one disc and the album on the other.

I have the same feeling about the original Varese release of Gremlins II. That's Goldsmith's most perfect album as far as I'm concerned. I didn't want to get the Club release of the complete score as the samples suggested there was a lot of filler.
