    Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    Apologies if that thread already exists first of all as I am very new  here. I have been buying soundtracks for 25 years or so now as I really like cinema and movies . without too much thought will list some of the rare , out of the ordinary soundtracks that well sound superb on the Beosound 9000  I recently bought

    (1) Manhunter soundtrack - movie from M Mann, the original Hanniball Lecteur movie. Very good 80s sound for those who like that era

    (2) Colonel Chabert - the movie with G Departieu - the book by H Balzac , one of my best movies, the opening scene of the Napoleonic era after the battle scene with all the dead bodies, horses, cannons etc is a monumental scene and the soudtrack with Beethoven , Bach and other is a very good selection. Also a great movie to watch and hard to find

    (3) Aguirre - wrath of God - all music by Popol Vuh - ethnic sounds, considered one of the best electronic , alternative music albums of the 70s

    (4) 2001 : A space odyssey . Amazing sound quality . Classic pieces

    (5)  The last Temptation of Christ. The movie by M Scortzese he considers it his best and so do I . Ethnic music by Peter Gabriel mixed with electronic, one of the best soundtracks i have ever heard and apparently he wrote the music at Gesthemanee that he visited  to get inspired to write music abou the life of Christ

    (6) Vanilla Sky - that very strang movie with Tom Cruise has an interesting mix from Bob Dylan to REM and others. Rare diversities in one album

    (7) The thin Red line. Great soundtrack and sound quality , some of the tracks are very complex music pieces

    (8) Star Wars . cant beat the original theme on high volume on a pair of 8000s I reckon . very good recording sound quality

    (9) Engineering Symphony - Porsche  Engine Sounds. Only for pistonheads  Stick out tongue

    (10) Halo 3 Soundtrack - Its by far one of the best computer games soundtracks. Amazing sounds and by far a great creation. Very underrrated in my opinion and its a shame

     

    Cheers ,

    George Whistle

    Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks

    Originally for a documentary "For all Mankind" but tracks have been used for a mulitude of movies and TV programmes.

    I'l bet everyone has heard the track ”An Ending (Ascent)” somewhere on TV without even noticing!

    I certainly would like that Engineering Symphony! Other favourite of mine is the well known soundtrack from Once upon a time in the West.

    I have this one too and it is really amazing. As is the movie, but I don't think I can bear to watch it ever again Unsure

    Aguirre (the movie) is somewhere as here well. I'll need to watch it again and pay more attention to the music.

    Ridley Scott's Black Rain Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.  

    Rare 

    Genre defining.

    Composer defining.

    Cool as hell... and probably the best programing ever by Hans back when he was still using a Fairlight CMI to compose on.

    Uncanny!

    Tonight's edition of Top Gear has just finished - as the closing item they played just about the whole of ”An Ending (Ascent)” over the Aston Martin V12 Vantage review, with almost no spoken commentary!

    Jezza does seem to have access to my record collection! Actually, according to the Wiki link I posted, it's not the first time they've used this particular track over car items.

    See, I told you it was a good track - even Jezza agreesBig Smile

    Re: Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    "An Ending" was playing in my car the other day with my five year old.  He normally hates my varied musical taste and insists on the silly "kids" music that somehow finds it's way into our house.  He was real quiet for a long time and then said "Daddy, I like this music."

    I was so proud that I told his mother when we got home.

    I figure Brian Eno is as good of a solid foundation for electronic music as mozart is for classical.

    I've heard it atleast on two other occasions I believe.  I think they have a pretty well rounded pool of "needle drop" music.

    Re: Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    i just got it and listened to that track Ascent. I have definitely heard it before. I assume its title and theme is about the lunar apollo mission when they were leaving the moon ... is that correct ?

     Try capturing that moment with a piece of music... really good piece of electronic music and very pleased becuase of this thread i heard it and have it now ...Smile

    I suggest the soundtrack to the movie "The Fountain" by Clint Mansell... really a great piece of music at a very good sound quality.

    Hope you enjoy!

    One of the best movies of the past years: Into the wild

    Soundtrack by Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) great music with great pictures!

    I think most movies of Sean Penn have great photography and are worth watching.

    Re: Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    Bo Hansson: "Lord Of The Rings" (music inspired by the book).

    ("Magician's Hat" also really worth it)

    Ry Cooder: "Paris Texas" and "Crossroads"

    Tom Waits: "The Black Rider" : The Casting of the Magic Bullets (musical fable)

    and really worth it, "Alice" songs written for the play Alice

    Re: Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    Trainspotting has one of my favorite soundtracks. In the same league, but even better, is the soundtrack from PULP FICTION. Marvelous!

    Also very good, with a lot of diversity is the soundtrack from Forrest Gump.

    Re: Really cool and rare soundtracks ( and some commentary on their movies )

    I also like Inception, Tron : Legacy and The Dark Knight soundtracks very much... I will add the soundtrack from Moon, by Clint Mansell to this list. Simply hypnotic.
