Original soundtrack from massive Otto Preminger WWII movie with John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Henry Fonda, many others. Jerry Goldsmith tackles his biggest project to date (1965) with dynamic, exciting, passionate & ultimately powerful score. He even makes brief on-screen film appearance as naval musician on eve of Pearl Harbor attack! Highlights are many but action sequences standout, introducing listeners to what will become Goldsmith's signature military action style. "The Rock" remains an all-time action classic! Incredibly powerful finale ("First Victory") another highlight. Intrada presents CD for the first time from actual first-generation 2-track stereo album masters as originally presented by RCA Victor in 1965. Earlier SLC label CD was meld of tape copy & restored vinyl. (Additional music wasn't available as complete Paramount masters have long since been lost.) Original album as prepared by Goldsmith and producer Neely Plumb remains a genuine classic! Terrific Saul Bass cover artwork another asset! Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 3000 copies!
