Good Enough for Me

with one comment

The soundtrack community can take another “holy grail” off the list today. Varese Sarabande has announced their newest Soundtrack Club title to be the premiere release of Dave Grusin’s score to The Goonies.

The Steven Spielberg-produced comedy about a group of misfits who find a pirate treasure map has been a cult classic ever since its release in 1985. Grusin’s score was grandiose, adventurous and sweet as needed, and was a highlight of the film. But the original LP release, on Epic Records, had only one cue, the score’s main theme, among a bunch of other tracks like Cyndi Lauper’s Top 10 hit “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough.”

But now every note as heard in the film will be presented, along with four alternate cues not used in the film. That’s 34 tracks filling this CD almost to capacity. Contemporary film score fans, recently rewarded for their patience with the premiere release of the score to Back to the Future on Intrada Records in November, should not miss this one – especially as the score will be limited to 5,000 copies.

Take a look at Varese’s newest limited titles, which also include scores by Jerry Goldsmith, Bill Conti and Philippe Sarde, by clicking here.
