Part two of the ninth episode of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO continues the analysis and discussion of the music written for the separate cuts of Ridley Scott’s 1985 epic dark fantasy adventure film, LEGEND, featuring music by Jerry Goldsmith (European Cut) and Tangerine Dream (American Cut).

The conversation continues with an in-depth look at three more sequences; Jack accepting weapons and armour to become The Champion, a bewitched and seduced Lili dancing and the fall of Darkness.

Joining fill-in host, Erik Woods, is the host of THE ARCHIVE, Jason Drury, host of OBSCURE SCORES, Robert Daniels and CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO’s in-house composer and host of COMPOSER CONVERSATIONS, David Coscina.

LEGEND is a 1985 epic dark fantasy adventure directed by Ridley Scott and starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, Tim Curry, David Bennent, Alice Playten, Billy Barty, Cork Hubbert, and Annabelle Lanyon. The film revolves around Jack (Cruise), a pure being who must stop the Lord of Darkness (Curry) who plots to cover the world with eternal night.

The original score for the film was composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith, performed by The National Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded by the legendary Mike Ross-Trevor. However, due to the massive changes made from the European version to the American version of the film, it was decided to remove Goldsmith’s score and have the German electronic group, Tangerine Dream, write and perform a new score.

Jerry Goldsmith’s original motion picture score is available on Silva Screen Records and Tangerine Dreams score is available through Varese Sarabande Records.
