BuySoundtrax Records is proud to announce the release of THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK, the latest release in their series of new recordings of classics from the composer’s extensive filmography, this time focusing on the songs the composer has been involved with during his lengthy career. While the composer has many generations of fans, it’s easy to forget that Jerry Goldsmith was also a great songwriter. He could craft a melody with the best of his colleagues, as the twenty tracks on THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK demonstrably prove. The tracks presented on THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK are culled from nearly every genre Goldsmith worked. The album represents five decades worth of Goldsmith’s music spread over forty years, from 1962’s DR. KILDARE to 2002’s THE SUM OF ALL FEARS. 

THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK features songs from DR. KILDARE, A PATCH OF BLUE, THE BLUE MAX, THE SAND PEBBLES, SEBASTIAN, THE DETECTIVE, THE CHAIRMAN, WILD ROVERS, PAPILLON, THE OMEN, COMA, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, PLAYERS, FIRST BLOOD, THE SECRET OF NIMH, TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE, LEGEND, THE RUSSIA HOUSE, POWDER and THE SUM OF ALL FEARS and features the vocal talents of Katie Campbell, Raya Yarbrough, Kira McCelland, Karen Hogle Brown, Fletcher Sheridan and Brian ‘Hacksaw’ Williams with musical arrangements produced by Joohyun Park, Dominik Hauser, Brandon K. Verrett, Dan Redfeld and Dennis McCarthy. 

Jerry Goldsmith was born in 1929 and as a child studied piano, composition and theory. After a stint taking classes in film composition taught by Miklós Rózsa at USC, he attended Los Angeles College. In 1950, Goldsmith was hired by CBS as a clerk typist for the music department. It was at CBS that he would get his start writing music for several television series. In the early 1960s, Goldsmith moved more into the feature film realm, earning widespread acclaim for his score for the western LONELY ARE THE BRAVE and his first Academy Award nomination in 1962 with FREUD. Throughout his long career, Goldsmith would be nominated 17 more times, for A PATCH OF BLUE, THE SAND PEBBLES, PLANET OF THE APES, PATTON, PAPILLON, CHINATOWN, THE WIND AND THE LION, THE OMEN (nominated for original song and earning the award for Original Score), THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, POLTERGEIST, UNDER FIRE, HOOSIERS, BASIC INSTINCT, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL and MULAN. He would also earn 5 Emmy Awards, for THE RED PONY, QB VII, BABE, MASADA and STAR TREK: VOYAGER. His credits also include beloved films and cult classics such as GREMLINS, RUDY, THE SECRET OF NIMH, FIRST BLOOD, TOTAL RECALL, BASIC INSTINCT, THE MUMMY, LOGAN'S RUN, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY and ALIEN.

THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK includes liner notes written by noted author Jon Burlingame providing insight into the songs presented on the album. THE JERRY GOLDSMITH SONGBOOK is now available. Suggested retail price is $15.95.
