Jerry Goldsmith Warlock (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on Limited Edition 180g 2LP
Fully restored, complete Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack from the Steve Miner satanic horror film Warlock with Julian Sands, Lori Singer, and Richard E. Grant. When Goldsmith first prepared his 1989 album (on both LP and CD) for Intrada, he omitted numerous cues, dropped several electronic ideas and deleted sweetener tracks. Resulting original stereo mixes were all that existed for some 25 years. Now, at long last, newly located 2" masters allow restoration of the entire score with all electronics and sweeteners intact plus many previously unreleased cues!
Warlock holds a very important place in the composer's repertoire: Coming literally at the end of the eighties, Goldsmith bids farewell to his legendary busy action vernacular while simultaneously looking forward to his streamlined nineties work. The lean main theme in minor key trades with aggressive action spotlighting propulsive low brass figures, swirling woodwinds, and slicing strings. Epic highlights: the lengthy final showdown ("Salt Water Attack") with dynamic action writing and the heartfelt parting sequence ("The Salt Flats") with rich variant of main theme, moving chordal passages.
Vibrant mixes made by Bruce Botnick and Mike Matessino, the entire production was supervised by Nick Redman, with notes by Jeff Bond, and vinyl mastering by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. 180g 2LP-set featuring a deluxe gatefold jacket designed by Joe Sikoryak with shiny UV coated surface, full artwork title on spine, full color throughout
