Intrada Premieres Scores to “Joe Kidd,” “Flight of the Intruder”

with one comment

FlightIntruder600This week, Intrada’s shaking off the dust on some little-heard, unreleased scores by two big names in film composing.

We’ve heard and seen composer Basil Poledouris and director John Milius enjoy great success with their movie collaborations, namely Conan The Barbarian and Red Dawn in the early ’80s. For this 1991 Vietnam War flick (a favorite topic of the outspoken Milius), Poledouris was again on hand to create a rousing, militaristic action score. Never before released on CD, this disc presents the complete score to another excellent film music collaboration between friends.

JoeKidd_600aThe label’s next title goes back almost 40 years to Joe Kidd, yet another example of the Western as starring Clint Eastwood. The legendary actor/director, helmed by John Sturges in this picture, plays – what else? – a mysterious, neutral bounty hunter hired to settle a land dispute in New Mexico, that ends up dispensing some justice along the way. Schifrin authorities peg the Joe Kidd score as one of his best and most interesting of the period, and this premiere CD release arguably highlights that fact better than the actual film (which truncates many of the cues heard in full here).

All titles are available to order now; hit the jump to find links to each and full track details.
