By Request - The Secret of NIMH (1982) (Jerry Goldsmith)
It's one thing to share this material when you've got a platform like a blog to do it, but it's another thing to magnanimously make their material available in the comment sections of blogs or in other places simply because of their love of music and the desire to share it. I have the utmost respect for that kind of generosity. The time and effort it takes to make it available without getting the same spotlight as bloggers do or having the same incentive of getting a free month at Rapidshare or having ads on a blog is generosity above and beyond, so that's why I always marvel at those fine people who do it (not to gush too much over them, but hey, they deserve it.)
So what does that have to do with The Secret of NIMH? Hmmmm......(runs away leaving a smoke outline of a fleeing man, hoping people don't notice he went off on another tangent).
Well, since I already uploaded this, I thought I'd post it anyway. And here's how insane I am. I still intend on downloading Rocket's version too. I used to pass on stuff I knew I already had, but now I download it just to be on the safe side. I would pass on stuff and then realize that it was an extended version, a bootleg, had bonus tracks, had better sound, or was simply a different version and then kick myself when it was gone. So now, I just download it anyway. It also saves me the trouble of encoding it. But sometimes it is ridiculous.
Like I think I've downloading the Flash Gordon soundtrack from 3 different blogs because I thought that CD was in storage, and then a while ago I was looking in a box of soundtracks and realized I had it here all the time! Well, in fairness, I think the first version I downloaded was ogg vorbis, so I thought I'd get another mp3 version. But I forget why I downloaded it the third time. Same thing for the 'Burbs. I think I've dl'ed that one 3 times and I already had that one too. But I had the extended version, so the first time I thought I'd get the original CD version. I forget what happened the next 2 times. And Evil Dead 1 & 2. Already had those too and I think I stupidly downloaded those from 3 different blogs anyway. You just never know though if it's got some differences, so it just saves time (but not space) in the long run to go ahead and download multiples copies rather than compare and contrast. And you really don't know in most cases until you download it, unless someone lists the track titles (which is why I list them.....and no, it's not so I can make the blog more verbose). This way, people can see which version they're getting.
Well, just like I said with The Three Suns' albums, go ahead and download both versions of The Secret of NIMH. Who needs hard drive space anyway? My version is the CD one on the TER label, and I forget how many different versions there are out there, but I'm downloading Rocket's version anyway! You're, of course, free to do whatever you want (but only this one time because in the future I expect you to obey my commands without question). Enjoy!

By the way, have you got the complete version of The 'Burbs soundtrack? The one i've got (from Manchester Morgue, i think) got 7 tracks missing... :( If you could upload this quickly (i'll be off sunday morning for 6 weeks, i'll go to see my best friend in Arizona), i'll be more than grateful and i'll try to post something special for christmas, just for you... :)
Does that make him a "Nimh-Wit"?
Do you remember his first appearance in the movies was "The Loved One" ?
he was the kid who ended up launching corpses into space!
Hey! These word verifications are starting to curse at me! ;)
Wow. Thanks for the kind words but I doubt I could run a site as well and or, as friendly as yours. Like I've said before; I'm relatively new to blogging but I really feel a certain camraderie and friendship from the folks that visit this blog in particular. And in large part the reason for that is you, our super cool host. Hats off to you!
As far as getting bonus points, or whatever, the joy for me is sharing some stuff that others might really want and enjoy (yes isbum---i've got McKenna's Gold and plan on ripping and posting that over the weekend! i'll post it in the 'request' 'comments section' soon with some of your other requests---promise!)
Like someone else mentioned recently, a simple thanks is usually more than enough.
All The Best,
Rocket From Mars
ps I almost forgot nomwl1---thanks for The Silencers! I've got the awesome Dean Martin vocal score but have been looking for this one for awhile now.
I feel the same way as you do Rocket. Why would I want to start a blog when we are all havin' so much fun with nomilie;)He's a cool and generous cat with a big place here that we can all play in!
BTW: I put together some sweet covers (front&back) for the records you have ripped Rocketman.
If you want, I can send them to you as jpg's.
This isn't a real comment, so ignore it (until I can think of something better to say), but I just wanted to let Breton Girl know that I wouldn't be able to post the 'Burbs before Sunday morning. So sorry!!! I'm not sure if it's any different from Manchester Morgue's version; I've got to check. But by the time you get back, it should be up if you still want it.
Again, sorry I'm not able to post it before you go, but it'll be waiting for you when you get back! Have a wonderful trip to Arizona!
And to everyone else, check back later for better responses to your comments. :))
And i just wait more for the (full) complete score of The 'Burbs, that's all....
Yeah, Paul Williams was a funny man. Once he got typecast in his acting roles, I think casting agents didn't utilize him to his fullest potential. They should've kept giving him roles where he could launch corpses into space. They really wasted him on other things later on. :)
And those word verifications can be tough! Mine is actually spelling out, 'StopBlogging', but I refuse to pay any attention.
Hi Honored General!
I was all set to put it in the Request post when it got fulfilled at JazzNotes, so I took it off quickly before it got embarassing!
And thanks for your consistently nice words!
See, I told everybody that people who came here were exceptionally nice and darned if I wasn't right! You and everybody else are the reason bloggers keep going. Look at all the nice things you've done for everybody by taking the trouble to rip so many albums for people! (And in case anybody thought your generosity just extended to soundtracks, I've appreciated and welcomed your visits for a long time since you left nice comments early on and offered more versions of 'House of the Rising Sun')
Though you wouldn't have to do a thing and you'd still be most welcome here! And I actually think you could probably run this blog better than I could, but it's still just my opinion. :))
And thanks again for all the nice things you said! And you're most welcome, good buddy, for The Silencers. :))
Hi again, Isbum!
Thanks for those nice words! You know, I never realize people look at the blog in that way until you and Rocket and others say that. It's nice to know that people feel it's a nice place to come! :))
Hi Breton Girl!
I know you're on vacation and probably won't read this (like anybody else is going to read this now that it's an older post, but I still like to respond to these comments), but I'll make sure you get The Burbs when you come back!
I'm so glad I could make it available after you've been looking for it for so long!
