Jerry Goldsmith's remarkable 78/79 season saw the composer tackle a series of major movies with diverse subject matters and complement each of them with equally diverse and impressive scores. Amongst the thrillers, sci-fi, horror and drama came a hugely enjoyable period caper; The Great Train Robbery. A lighted hearted romp through Victorian England, directed by Michael Crichton, based on his book. Varése Sarabande have produced a welcome re-issue of this delightful Jerry Goldsmith score, presenting it as a multi channel SACD, though often lacking the dynamics and vibrancy of the Memoir CD, and elevated it to deluxe edition status by including extra music too, though sadly this is not the complete score.
