This is the Junkyard's biggest post yet! It took a couple of nights getting this together for your enjoyment.
First up we have the first Gremlins movie. Classic stuff. I don't even have to go into how this is a childhood classic for all of us who were kids in the 80's. The great score by the great Jerry Goldsmith didn't get a full score release. It got a measly four tracks on the official album (around 16 minutes worth of score). However this was better than nothing and of course it included the great Gremlin rag.
So here for your enjoyment is the official album release for Gremlins.
01. Michael Sembello - Gremlins Mega Madness
02. Quarterflash - Make It Shine
03. Peter Gabriel - Out Out
04. Jerry Goldsmith - Gift
05. Jerry Goldsmith - Gizmo
06. Jerry Goldsmith - Mrs Deagle
07. Jerry Goldsmith - Gremlin Rag
Now here is the 21 Track Bootleg Score. This is the first Gremlins Bootleg Score to be released. The sound quality is pretty good. No intrusive sound effects or anything. The only real flaw is that there is a mild hiss noise throughout the score. It's not terribly noticeable but it's obviously a bootleg and not a mastered album. But quite frankly I prefer this bootleg to anything else. The last 3 tracks are from Twilight Zone: The Movie. The only reason I'm keeping those with it is because it was a part of this bootleg for a long time and in order to escape confusion they are kept in there.
As a BONUS I added a 22nd track to the 21 Track Bootleg. It is the Gremlins Suite that Jerry Goldsmith performed on the album "Goldsmith Conducts Goldsmith".

Now, I have come across various "Complete" Gremlins soundtrack that vary from 40 to 46 tracks. I was going to post the 46 track version I found but I can't verify it at all in searches. And to be honest these "Complete" versions suck "complete" ass in sound quality. Especially when compared to the FAR superior 21 track version in 320 kbps . If I come across one of the complete soundtracks with decent quality I'll post it here but otherwise stick to the two soundtracks above.
On to the sequel folks...
GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH
This score I find to be a slightly more enjoyable listen overall. I love the original for it's old school Goldsmith style but this one is just as cinematic as scores get and of course the quality of sound here is much better to as this was an official score release. Not nearly complete mind you... but a pretty solid soundtrack that I grew up with. If any of you know of an Expanded bootleg, let me know. I included a bonus track to this one. It's the music that plays when the Brain Gremlin makes a Bat Gremlin. It was from Goldsmith's score for The Burbs.
