One of the most beloved scores of the 1980’s is finally making its wide-release debut on vinyl! Coming to you from Varèse Sarabande Records on March 29th, The Goonies can be pre-ordered through the Varèse Sarabande website at VareseSarabande.com. This timeless soundtrack has been around for over 30 years and this is its first ever wide release on black vinyl!
From the imagination of Steven Spielberg and propelled by David Grusin’s score, The Goonies plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling surprise-around-every corner quest beyond their wildest dreams! Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys…and a mild- mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.
Dave Grusin has won an Academy Award along with multiple Grammys and is the founder of GRP records. Grusin’s lasting musical imprint in film comes from composing memorable scores for The Graduate, On Golden Pond, Tootsie and The Goonies. In 1988, he won the Oscar for best original score for The Milagro Beanfield War. [www.varesesarabande.com]
