Reissue of exciting, fan-favorite soundtrack by Craig Safan to first Remo Williams tale, directed by James Bond veteran Guy Hamilton, starring Fred Ward, Joel Grey. (A short-lived TV series was launched after first film hit theaters.)
Main theme appears during opening but Safan devotes bulk of his time to rousing adventure, pulsating action, sweet Korean theme. He writes with interesting use of brass section as one giant percussion device - in fact, at times entire orchestra plays resounding rhythmic ideas as complete themes unto themselves. Exciting! Intrada CD uses same 1/4" 15 ips two-track stereo mixes (from composer) as previous release but happily fixes incorrect channel balance issue for first time. (Even composer's masters were incorrect.)
Complex score requires large orchestra, adds vibrant array of synthesizers, then adds layer of authentic Korean musicians. Each element was recorded separately, then mixed into composite two-track analog format. Numerous layers of analog tape adds degree of hiss to masters but crisp, vibrant recording compensates. Besides correcting reversed channel anomaly, Intrada places ferris wheel source music at end of album as "extras".
Intrada release is primarily for fans who've missed out in the past and want another chance to own this dynamic soundtrack. Craig Safan conducts. Intrada Special Collection limited to 1000 copies!
