Intrada Rescues “White Fang” from the Wild

leave a comment »

Intrada’s latest releases were supposed to be a double shot of Disney, but changes in the label’s schedule have yielded just one new title for this week: the first release of the multifaceted score to 1991’s live-action Disney flick White Fang.

Based on Jack London’s novel of the same name, White Fang told the tale of a Yukon explorer (Ethan Hawke) and the wolfdog he befriends. The acclaimed film’s music was conducted primarily by two very different composers: an orchestral old hand in Basil Pouledoris, and a synthesizer-based upstart in Hans Zimmer. Both mens’ works appeared in the finished film, with slightly more emphasis on Pouledoris.

But because Intrada knows how to treat soundtrack fans, they’ve included both over two discs. Both scores receive their premiere releases in this set, sourced from the original analog (for Pouledoris) and digital (for Zimmer) masters kept in perfect condition in Disney’s fabled vaults.
