Soundtrack Ratings







Contract On Cherry Street

A limited edition release of this rare score from 1977. The last year Goldsmith would write a TV Movie score, apart from his work on the TV Mini-series; Masada. The film starred Frank Sinatra and was a turning point for the medium, a TV movie with a big screen feel. Goldsmith wrote a particularly dark thriller score, mirroring the 70s style utilised for Capricorn One and Damien Omen II. The score's strengths are some particularly harsh brass driven action material (trombones, not trumpets) combined with a lazy 70's s jazz style. Along the way we have some classic Goldsmith suspense and far too much inventiveness for a project of this type ever deserved.

Expanded review to follow.
