With our Encore Edition of Jerry Goldsmith's beautiful Raggedy Man score, the CD Club comes full circle. Raggedy Man (1981) is one of Goldsmith's most delicate and gentle scores. It was one of the scores that inspired the creation of the Varèse Sarabande CD Club in the first place and became the seventh release in the series, in the spring of 1991. That limited edition has been out of print ever since. It's been unavailable for 28 years!
Making a curtain call and providing the final encore for the CD Club's "Encore" series, it is only appropriate that Jerry Goldsmith takes us out. Do not miss this very special and historic release!
While World War II rages overseas, a divorced mother of two, Nita Longley (Sissy Spacek), struggles to makes ends meet as a telephone operator in small-town Texas. As the subject of disdainful gossip due to her divorce, Nita faces a lonely existence of ostracism, where only the unscrupulous approach her -- often with ill intent. When she befriends Teddy (Eric Roberts), a sailor on leave, her situation improves, but he's soon sent to war. Once again, Nita must face her plight alone.
