The Crew Milan 35918 (2 score cuts) 15.99
(34:34) Two tracks of score (6:52) plus vocals. Upbeat,
sometimes pretty score. Guitar, percussion, electronics, piano and
orchestra provide quirky, jazzy fun.
Earth Cinema TrebelV 6003 15.99
(46:47) Composer of numerous IMAX films provides collection
of original music, cues from Treasure Of The Gods, Mysteries Of
Egypt and Whales. Emphasis is on small, ethnic ensembles with
synthesizers and percussion.
Michael Jordan To The Max CHA 1007 (2 score cuts) 16.99
(41:56) Two tracks of score (5:06) plus vocals. Pulsating,
energetic score played by Skywalker Symphony Orchestra.
Dynamic. Too bad there are only 2 short tracks.
The Green Bird (Broadway) DRG 12989 14.99
Original Broadway Cast. Considerable orchestral music plus
vocal and choral segments. Reflective, mystical music crosses
with comedic, circus-like stuff.
The Way Of The Gun Milan 35915 15.99
(61:58) Sparse, dramatic orchestral score. Percussion, low brass
highlight grim, intense mood. Sometimes exciting, often moody.
Strong all-score album.
Steal This Movie! Varese 66177 15.99
(39:03) Electric guitar, piano, drums, harmonica, organ, sax,
kazoo and voice recreate sounds of the sixties, the era of Abbie
Hoffman. There's sitar too.
MICHAEL & PATTY SILVERSHER
Little Mermaid II: Return To The Sea Disney 60685 9.99
(23:30) All new vocals. Pleasant tunes with orchestral backing.
Brief album length, lack of underscore music indicates marketing
aimed at juveniles.
British Film Music Volume II Pearl 0101 16.99
-Costal Command/Things To Come/49th Parallel/
Story Of A Flemish Farm/Dangerous Moonlight/etc-
(79:29) Original mono recordings. Features world premiere
24-minute suite from original soundtrack of Things To Come by

scheduled to be released Sept. 26th.
