I had been neglecting the soundtrack side of things here, so I thought I would put up few great soundtracks to two great movies and one that was shitty. I really like the first two POLTERGEIST flicks but the third one...Well no one really remembers it anyway. Here have All three soundtracks. The first two are by soundtrack master Jerry Goldsmith and the last one is by Joe Renzetti. Jerry Goldsmith(1929-2004) has of course cranked out quite a few soundtracks in his time including Twilightzone, Planet of the apes, Alien, Legend and The Omen 1, 2 &3. So needless to say this dude is a pro and delivers two very atmospheric scores, I love them both. Next is Joe Renzetti's Score for the third and worst POLTERGEIST film, part 3. If you haven't seen this one , don't bother. its just a rehash and lacks everything that made the first one so special. Joe Renzetti was also very experienced at the music came and had been Cameo Records house guitarist, he played on the hits "Let's Twist Again", " Dee Dee Sharp's "Mashed Potato Time"", "South Street", The "Limbo Rock", "Palisades Park, and "Tallahassee Lassie". Thats some killer stuff for sure,but he also arranged Barry Manilow's "Mandy",not so killer. One last cool fact about Joe renzetti is that he taught the actors in "The Buddy Holly Story" how to play their instruments and perform the songs in the movie, this was a real first and I cant think of another movie off the top of my head that has done this. Anyway his soundtrack here is awesome and worth your time for a listen.
