Dragon's Domain Records presents The Peter Bernstein Collection, Volume 2, featuring music composed by Peter Bernstein for two projects from his filmography, Kicks and She Stood Alone: The Tailhook Scandal.

Released in 1985, Kicks was a television movie produced by ABC Circle Films, directed by William Wiard, written by David Levinson and starring Anthony Geary, Shelley Hack, Tom Mason, Ian Abercrombie, Susan Rutan and James Avery. Kicks tells the story of Martin (Geary), a wealth man living life on the edge by engaging in dangerous life-threatening activities. Martin becomes involved with Maggie (Hack), a university professor who has the same proclivities. Martin and Maggie start playing games to feed their dangerous addictions, games with ever escalating stakes. During one of these games, a staged robbery, a guard is killed, shaking Maggie back to a frightening reality. When she tries to confess the crime, Martin turns on her and begins to hunt her. If she wants to survive, she's going to have to rely on her wits.

Kicks was Bernstein's ninth film and third TV movie score, following 1984's The Ewok Adventure and preceding My Science Project and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor and others later in 1985. The score for Kicks is a blending of small orchestra and electronic elements. This score was recorded at Evergreen Studios in Burbank. Bernstein also produced an arrangement of the Paul Revere and the Raiders' song "Kicks," from which the film takes its name.

Airing on television in 1995, She Stood Alone: The Tailhook Scandal was directed by Larry Shaw, written by Suzette Couture and starring Gail O'Grady, Bess Armstrong, Cameron Bancroft, Matt Clark, Hal Holbrook, James Marshall, Robert Urich and Rip Torn. She Stood Alone tells the story of Lt. Paula Coughlin (O'Grady) when she was assigned as an Admiral's assistant at Tailhook, an annual US Navy convention held in Las Vegas. Attended predominantly by male officers who frequently get out of control like they are on leave, Coughlin is subjected to 'The Gauntlet', where she is man-handled and harassed relentlessly by these male officers. Refusing to be a silent victim, Coughlin fights for her rights and to bring her attackers to justice.

Bernstein was brought into this project through producer William Greenblatt, who he had worked with previously on Nightbreaker and would work with again on Target Earth. Bernstein's score is very eloquent in its treatment, which featured a live group of musicians. The score is built around a noble main theme for brass, associated with Paula's dedication to the Navy. In addition to the main theme for solo trumpet or French horn, several cues for marching snare and bass drums convey additional militaristic elements. The Tailhook] score was recorded in Salt Lake City with a small orchestra, overdubbed in a few places by synths.

Dragon's Domain Records presents The Peter Bernstein Collection, Volume 2, featuring music composed and produced by Peter Bernstein for Kicks and She Stood Alone: The Tailhook Scandal, presented for the very first time on compact disc. The music has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and the liner notes have been written by noted author Randall Larson, with the participation of the composer.
