Masada directed by Boris Sagal (The Omega Man) and starring Peter O’Toole and Peter Strauss tells the story of the historical siege of the Masada citadel in Israel by legions of the Roman Empire in AD 73. The mini-series was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards and 3 Golden Globes and Jerry Goldsmith has won an Emmy Award for his score for the second part.

The label has also released Jerry Goldsmith’s score for the 1959 black-and-white thriller City of Fear a few weeks ago. The album marks the earliest film score of Goldsmith that has been released on CD to date. The soundtrack is limited to 2000 copies.

The film centers on an escaped convict who is heading to Los Angeles and has gotten hold of a radioactive powder that is explosive enough to blow the city off the map.
