World premiere release of fanciful John Addison soundtrack for Michael Laughlin fun sci-fi tale with Paul LeMat, Nancy Allen, Louise Fletcher, June Lockhart. Fast pace inspires Addison to write energetic music, quasi-50's roots inspires him to deliver it with dramatic flourish. Addison anchors score with dynamic outer space march, then builds layers of suspense, excitement. Touches of small town Americana add scope, alien motifs keep everything other worldly. When film ends, Addison brings score to dynamic close. Oh, the joy of composers who finish what they start! CD made possible through courtesy of MGM plus efforts of BYU film music archives, where complete session elements survive. Analog to digital transfers of 1/4" 7 1/2 ips two-track stereo tapes owned by composer plus stereo cassette safeties (of opening cue) allowed us to assemble complete score, including music truncated in finished film.
5/5 Intrada is on fire this summer, their releases are great choices and sometimes hidden classics... this release is no different. Excellent!
