Soundtrack Watch: Intrada’s Busy Month

leave a comment »

isc247B_booklet.inddCalling all soundtrack lovers: Intrada has been pretty busy in the last few weeks, reissuing or expanding three diverse scores and premiering another on CD.

The label’s most recent batch saw a pair of double-disc score sets, and the first up was James Horner’s action-packed score to 1994’s Clear and Present Danger. Based on the Tom Clancy novel, Clear and Present Danger finds the irascible agent Jack Ryan (played again by Harrison Ford, his second turn in the role after 1992’s Patriot Games) serving as acting deputy director of the CIA, only to find a covert drug war in Colombia is being conducted behind his back – and the President may be in on the scheme. Many of Horner’s dramatic action cues from this film are making their proper debut on this two-disc set, along with a few extras from the original soundtrack CD.

Inchon_mafA_600Last week also saw the reissue of Intrada’s double-disc presentation of Inchon, Jerry Goldsmith’s score to the Terence Young dramatization of the pivotal Korean War battle. Initially released on LP by the Regency International label upon initial release in 1981, Intrada oversaw a release of the original score as heard in the film on CD in 1988, and then expanded that program in 2006 as a two-disc set featuring both complete score and original soundtrack LP. That program is now available once more – and as an unlimited title, preserved in the label’s catalogue from this point. It’s another traditionally strong mid-period Goldsmith score for everyone to enjoy again.

Intrada also bowed a few single-disc sets in the weeks before their latest batch: first there was a straight remastered reissue of Maurice Jarre’s score to Dreamscape, a Dennis Quaid-anchored sci-fi film about infiltrating people’s dreams two decades before Inception, and the premiere of Jerry Fielding’s score to Beyond The Poseidon Adventure, which found a few all-star groups of explorers revisiting the half-sunken ocean liner. Full details on all four sets, including track lists and order links can be found after the jump!
