From the Manufacturer
In 1981, two veterans of the British comedy group Monty Pythonwriter-director Terry Gilliam and actor-writer Michael Palincombined the incongruous elements of god, the devil, Napoleon, Robin Hood, King Agamemnon, the minotaur, the sinking of the Titanic, two star-crossed lovers, a man-eating ogre, six thieving dwarves and the imagination of one eleven-year-old boy into the adventure classic Time Bandits. The score by composer Mike Moran has never been available before, despite numerous requests for decades. With heartfelt thanks to Handmade Films, this long-sought title is finally available on CD 39 years later! Good things come to those who wait. While the opening and closing of the score are electronic, all of the score in between features full orchestra, keeping pace with the frenetic, colorful antics and adventure on screen. Moran composed and orchestrated his score in 21 days, with Harry Rabinowitz conducting six sessions at Wembley's CTS Studios, featuring a 70-piece orchestra. As an added bonus, the album also includes George Harrisons song, "Dream Away."
The film tells the story of Kevin, a young boy ignored by his materialistic parents, who finds his world turned upside down when his bedroom is invaded by a group of thieves who, having stolen a map of "time holes" from their employer, the Supreme Being, are using it to plunder treasure from a variety of historical localesunaware that the Evil Genius is plotting to use their map to free himself from imprisonment in the Fortress of Ultimate Darkness.
