Product Description

Amazon.com

The collaboration between director Franklin J. Schaffner and composer Jerry Goldsmith produced several fantastic films and scores, but none have been more memorable than 1970's Patton. Goldsmith's grandiosely constructed marches and echoing trumpets express both the essence of the complex general as well as Schaffner's visual imagery. These trumpets find their way into nearly every part of the film's score, lending an aura of timelessness and invincibility to the conflicts that lay ahead. Even in "The Cemetery," they float beneath the heavy drums and light piccolos as testament to the sacrifice and memorial of death in combat. The score to Tora! Tora! Tora! embodies the invasion of Pearl Harbor as Goldsmith brings the sounds of the Japanese koto and wood blocks under the structure of a full Western symphony. Opposing instruments build up separately from one another as the fighting forces come closer to battle then blend at the climax of engagement. Swift and furious as well as cold and decisive, Goldsmith's score slowly lets the tension rise then swoops down to reflect scenes as shocking and surprising as the day itself. --James Stockstill

In 1976 I bought this LP version of the original soundtrack. It was warped! But I managed to get it taped. The triplets that chills you at the start of a cue was done through an echo device. This LP version was a re-recording and not the actual film soundtrack which was released in 1999 through Film Score Monthly magazine. The LP version is the one to go for because it is fuller and conducted with great verve by Goldsmith himself.The actual soundtrack version has very sparse orchestration and does not do so well on first hearing. My first choice is the Tsunami label LP version which includes the opening fanfare before George C. Scott`s inspirational speech.It also includes the closing speech spoken so philosophically by Scott. Second choice would be the actual soundtrack and last the re-recording coupled with Tora Tora. Anyone know where I could get an intermediate piano version of the score or Patton March ? The sheet music I have is too simple ! The March is not only martial it is very fun to conduct.

I love the score from "Patton," however I was somewhat dissapointed that this CD didn't contain the original records. However, the music is excellent and as it is the only CD that contains the theme from "Patton," I don't have a choice! :)

Don't buy this if you want a CD version of the original vinyl soundtrack. This is a new and somewhat different rendition of the score and it's missing George C. Scott's classic opening address to the troops and his closing statement. Also, in my opinion, some of the music isn't as good as the original.

Altho the attempt was grand,the result was a poorly miked version of both soundtracks. There ARE 2 COMPLETE versions of both soundtracks out on the market. You will have to look for them, they are at a well known film score website that also has a print magazine. Nice attempt,well done,but lacking in sound quality and impact. Find the original scores, and then decide!

This isn't the original soundtrack; if I had to give it a label, I'd call it "variations on a theme of Patton." Not that the disk is bad per se. It's just that, well, I grew up with the original soundtrack, and that's the version that I know and love -- especally the "All glory is fleeting" monologue. Which is missing from this release -- as is the opening monologue.

Whoever rates this CD as a 3 or 4 star is either deaf or inept. Not one bad note is present on this masterpiece. I hope everybody thinks as I do. Unlike others, I rate the CD not compared to the original, but to the other materpieces, which it exceeds tremendously. Patton cannot be emulated!

I was really pleased to find "Patton" and "Tora, Tora, Tora" on one CD plus more tracks from "Patton" than the original record had. What's tremendously disappointing is to not have the opening speech and concluding narration that the original record did, hence the three star rating.

I was glad to see that someone finally re-released "Patton". Jerry Goldsmith did an excellent job of duplicating (for want of a better term) "World War II-type marching music" The listener's emotions run from the glorious "Patton March" to the more somber cuts which accompanied defeats and low moments in Patton's life. My only complaint (and the reason for the 4 stars) was the absence of George C. Scott's dialogue, which was such an effective part of the original release.
