Poltergeist II - Definitive 3 CD Edition
Records present a 3 CD set of Jerry Goldsmith 1986 score to the horror sequel
Poltergeist II The Other Side. This score has proved amazingly popular over
the years making this the 5th incarnation! Intrada's first Jerry Goldsmith CD
was this score, but back in 1986 could only release 30 minutes of highlights.
They followed this up in 1993 with an expanded release produced by the composer.
This was followed by a Deluxe Edition from Varese in 2003 - expanded still
further. Enter the Kritzerland label in 2013, who appeared to release the
complete version, but notably presenting the film mixes for the first time,
revealing far more detail than ever heard before - plus a host of extras making
it a 2 CD presentation.
But now Intrada comes full circle and present the score on a specially priced 3
CD set! The first two discs feature the complete score from both the analogue
film mixes and the digital mix made by the composer with his engineer Bruce
Botnick. Disc 3 for the most part features score highlights sans choir, plus for
the first time ever we get to hear Goldsmith's initial presentation of the
finale “Reaching Out/The Astral” in two versions one with and without

Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star For Jerry Goldsmith!
Goldsmith received his Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star today - May 9th 2017 at a
special ceremony on the iconic Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd. The event saw
Carol Goldsmith and son Aaron Goldsmith alongside tributes from film composers
and close friends David Newman and Charles Fox as well as song writer Paul
Williams. All had worked tirelessly over a number of years to bring Jerry
Goldsmith this lasting tribute which received support from film directors,
composers and stars that knew of Jerry's music, or had worked on films with his
scores. Letters of support came from Sean Connery, Quincy Jones, Alec Baldwin
and Donald Sutherland. As well as support from Fred Schepisi and Paul Verhoeven,
to name but a few.
The 30 minute ceremony featured warm and some times emotional words on the
person they knew so well and his incredible contribution to music for film and
television over his long career.
