Editorial Reviews

2-CD world premiere of complete Jerry Goldsmith 1982 soundtrack for megahit Ted Kotcheff action movie where Sylvester Stallone first introduces iconic Rambo character to moviegoers and legendary composer first unleases landmark action music to listeners. Hear FIRST BLOOD like never before, complete and from multi-track masters for the first time! Many years ago Intrada presented score as it's very first limited edition CD, drawn from original 1982 1/4" two-track stereo LP masters with one additional track courtesy Goldsmith and engineer Len Engel. Tapes were processed with less-than-satisfying noise reduction to compensate for problems inherent with incorrect Dolby-encoding of 1/4" masters. Subsequent Varese Sarabande label CD used same master for its version. Now, back at home on Intrada, FIRST BLOOD finally appears in complete fashion with best audio ever! Goldsmith prepared terrific album in 1982 but resequenced entire program, edited numerous important bars of music to allow assemblies with other cues. Thanks to discovery of actual pristine condition 1/2" three-track stereo session elements made in London, Intrada presents entire score in sequence, restores all edits, allows magnificent music to unfold in sequence originally written

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldsmith Draws First Blood May 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jerry Goldsmith the most popular composer of our time has written some of best film scores in the history of modern film music including Planet Of The Apes, Alien, Total Recall, Poltergiest and Poltergiest 2.none would be as memorable or revered as the music he composed for the 1982 classic Rambo First Blood, as he would become slyvesters right hand man for the next two sequels. 25 years later Goldsmith's musical torch would be passed to Brian Tyler in 2008 Brian Tyer composed the music for the fourth installment in Rambo franchise, adding his own unique style to the music yet faithfully restoring a few Goldsmiths original material from years past.

Now 30 years later since Rambo First Blood's original release in 1982 the independant record lable Intrada records finally released the entire complete soundtrack with music and sound remastered and restored to perfection a wonderful two disc set.Disc 1 containing 19 tracks which are all in chroniclogical order just as heard in the film while, Disc 2 contains the original soundtrack the new intrada version unlike previous releases adds an extra three tracks.

Including a Demo of the Dan Hill classic It's a Long Road Carolco Logo music performed by Jerry Goldsmith and Special Summer 1984 trailer music Last but certainly not least presenting this wonderful package is a full booklet of 14 pages featuring linear notes from album producer Douglass Fake and for anyone who's interested in learning the lyrics to It's a Long Road check out page 14.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Jerry Goldsmith masterpiece! December 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think, wrongly, that Jerry Goldsmith does not get enough credit for his action movies. One listen to this CD and you will think the same way. One thing I loved about this CD is that I could literally see the movie in my mind as I am listening to the music, which is something Goldsmith excelled at!
