Regarding "Fight On The Wing Continues". I almost thought that what ended up on the DH2 Deluxe Edition was the version recorded for Die Hard With A Vengeance. It contains the music from the sex scene of Simon Gruber and that crazy chick.
This is my #1 most played score right now - in particular, fight on the wing part 1 and 2. I listen to those two tracks do damn loud while I'm driving. Big, brash action music like that is sorely missing in films these days.
I cannot get enough. A monumental improvement over the original.
I noticed piano while watching that scene. Must have been added late in the game, maybe to patch up some of the music edits they made. Also noticed a really brief synth line as the bad guys first approach the church. Poor Kamen's music always gets chopped up, looped, moved around or dropped entirely.
I would have loved to be the percussion player on the Wing cue.
Thanks for posting that deal. I was so bummed when I missed out on it from Varese. Now I will have it in my collection and will have paid half the price too. And here I thought my luck was always against me.
