Jerry Goldsmith's Escape From The Planet Of The Apes.
14-Nov-2009 - Varèse Sarabande has released in the CD Club seriesEscape From The Planet Of The Apes.Jerry Goldsmith returned for the third film in Twentieth Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes saga. For Franklin J. Schaffner’s original classic, Goldsmith wrote one of the all-time GREAT films scores. Remarkable in every way and truly groundbreaking, there was no topping what he had done previously. So Jerry Goldsmith did what he always did in that situation … he wrote something completely new! And once again he soared! For Escape From The Planet of the Apes (1971) Jerry miraculously brought Planet of the Apes to the 1970s and gave it a groove! That’s not to say his original score didn’t have plenty of groove itself, but in a very different way. Here he added an electric guitar, a steel drum and a sitar to his orchestra! Previously available only as an abbreviated “bonus track” on Varèse's Planet of the Apes CD, this release of the complete score from Escape From The Planet Of The Apes finally plugs one of the of the most important holes in Jerry Goldsmith’s discography.
