Pure delight for Lalo Schifrin fans! World premiere of exciting soundtrack for Phillip Borsos crime thriller with Kurt Russell, Mariel Hemingway, Andy Garcia. Schifrin spins web of suspense, then unleashes wild excitement for full orchestra. Along way are detours into classic Schifrin jazz. Dynamic main title is one of several highlights, with scorching trumpet in lead. Haunting closing music ("Christine") also features trumpet. Composer wrote some 45 minutes of score with thematic development but also wrote over half hour of tiny fragments, transitions, stingers. We have assembled "the album" portion with maximum listening in mind but also include every short cue, fragment in "the extras" section of CD, plus roadmap in notes for those wishing to dispense with tighter album listening and instead program entire 77-minute score in sequence. Intrada was given access to actual 32-track digital session masters vaulted by MGM in pristine condition, allowing us to create brand new two-track digital stereo mixes of every cue!
