    Marianelli is coming but we're still having troubles to acquire some decent artwork. We don't even have a copy of the darn film. It should not be too long though - thanks for your patience! smile
  2. We lost him way too early. Same with Walker and Poledouris.


    I remember reading, had he not passed away, he was going to do the scores to "The Incredibles" and anotehr Pixar one, I think it was "Finding Nemo".

    Great news about the Kamen. There aren't a lot of releases of his music in the first place, and to have his final work is a true pleasure. Well done, Mikael!
    I am extremely serious.
  3. this is definitely a very fine release. Congratulations Mikael, I'm sure it will be a very profitable release, I hope so for you. You deserve it smile

    Though, I would not want to have to lose Giacchino and Newman's scores for a chance to see what Kamen would have done.

    World premiere of original soundtrack by Michael Kamen to action thriller directed by Jack Sholder, starring Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jami Gertz. Botched robbery leads to theft of sacred tribal lance, dangerous pursuit by cop Sutherland in uneasy alliance with Lakota Indian Phillips.

    ROAD HOUSE

    Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 190
    Date: 1989
    Tracks: 14
    Time = 48:19

    At last! World premiere release of Michael Kamen soundtrack from popular Rowdy Herrington action picture with Patrick Swayze in iconic role as Dalton, expert bouncer, teamed with friend Sam Elliot against ultra-baddie Ben Gazzara. Kelly Lynch brings romance, Jeff Healey Band adds local color. Kamen writes to small town environment, bar scene with signature guitar, keyboard work, then for climactic fight scenes, dramatically ushers in powerhouse large-scale orchestral action material. Ferocious "Dalton and Reno Fight" is terrific highlight, ditto film version of "The Final Confrontation". In balance is warm theme for outdoor country farm atmosphere where Dalton resides. Intrada lands once missing actual 2" 24-track session masters stored in MGM vaults in excellent condition, then licenses courtesy Sony to make score available for first time, newly remixed, mastered in superb stereo sound. One of composer's most oft-requested scores, finally available! Only discordant note: one solitary reel containing two brief orchestral sequences remains lost to the ages. However, in addition to all major cues, remaining reels also featured several cues not used in picture, including early original version of "Final Confrontation" plus instrumental "Final Theme" written for but not used at end of movie. Michael Kamen conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

    01. The Homestead (Dalton's Theme) 2:37
    02. Tai Chi 1:33 Hear This Track
    03. Nobody Ever Wins A Fight 1:52
    04. Drop Like A Stone 3:15
    05. Invitation To Brads 1:54
    06. On The Rooftop 5:41
    07. Loading Dock Fight 7:44
    08. This Is My Town 3:13
    09. Emmet's House Explodes [Original Version] 1:01
    10. Dalton And Reno Fight 3:19
    11. Heads Or Tails? 3:00
    12. The Final Confrontation [Original Version] 4:44
    13. The Final Confrontation [Film Version] 6:15
    14. Final Theme 1:54

    I love Michael Kamen probably more than anybody else does, but honestly, when the best the always-hyperbolic record label's hyperbole can come up with for the album's two main assets is that it contains lengthy cues and crisp stereo sound... I suspect this is not A-grade material.

    Am I wrong, I wonder? I have never heard of the film so have never heard any of its music.

    I agree. This doesn't sound very interesting. Like Kamen's version of Horner's THUNDERHEART.
    I am extremely serious.
  6. ROAD HOUSE is one of the most ridiculous movies I've ever seen, and the score is a big part of it. Would it hold up as a stand alone listen? I'm not convinced.

    I have fond memories of ROAD HOUSE from my youth (it was a pretty "cool" film to like at the time), but I havent' seen it since then and I can't remember a note of the music. That is, not untill I heard the clips above.

    It's a film that I would probably have enjoyed at the time of it's release, as it is I saw it for the first time about five years ago and my verdict...

    SHITE!

    Can't remember the score at all.

    It's a bit disappointing to hear that Road House is so synthy sounding in the softer tracks. Non-orchestral Kamen can be a bit trying for me, knowing how good his music sounds like with live players. Good thing the action cues are orchestral.

    We are proud to announce our release of the legendary Michael Kamen's original orchestral score from the German fantasy animation Back to Gaya on CD and online. The completion of the score was an extraordinary achievement as the composer tragically, in the midst of composing the music for the film, passed away. Committed to fulfil the vision of Kamen, complementing the music he had written specifically for Back to Gaya with a selection of his unused compositions from previous film projects, a team of composer and orchestrators headed by Kamens long-time associates Steve McLaughlin (producer/recording engineer) and Christopher Brooks (producer/music editor) finalized the score to fit the film perfectly. MovieScore Media's album features 62 minutes of grand orchestral, adventurous and highly entertaining Michael Kamen music performed by the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

    In honour of the late maestro, MovieScore Media will share a portion of revenues generated by the album with Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which was founded by Michael Kamen in 1996 as his commitment to the future of music education.

    First edition of the CD is limited to 1000 copies.
