Intrada CD 1 presents complete soundtrack in chronological order (including opening trumpet salute recorded at sessions) then offers fascinating "extra" of trumpet echoplex session, spotlighting Goldsmith rehearsing & recording famous trumpet triplets with echoplex device. CD 2 offers first-ever CD release of 1970 album originally issued on 20th Century Fox label, presented from actual album masters. Goldsmith stated performance for these sessions were his favorite, offering best mixing of snare drum, crisp pizzicato strings, other details. Important difference between soundtrack and album versions: Film sequence necessarily presents almost all quiet music for first half then all loud music for second half. For album sessions, Goldsmith gives architecture of score more variety. Another striking difference: at album sessions, Goldsmith scored special dynamic fully-drawn version of his German march theme (quoted just twice in film in variations) to balance with familiar Patton march. Exciting arrangement made dramatic finish to first side of LP! Intrada presents this complete stereo album, including opening Patton speech (spoken by George C. Scott), closing speech as recorded for LP (mixed in mono with voice), then offers special world premiere "extra" of album end title in stereo without dialog! Julie Kirgo offers insights to film & score in detailed notes for booklet, original classic Fox LP artwork features on cover. Special two-disc set priced as a single disc! Jerry Goldsmith conducts both recordings. Intrada MAF series 2-CD set is definitive presentation of classic score, belongs in every film music library!
