I'm not very familiar with this score, but I'm looking forward to hearing this. I love old school Silvestri and have always liked him when he's in the sentimental, dramatic mode. It sounds like a good mix of action and drama.
A great movie for score and songs. And a great, meaningful movie, period. Thrilled that Intrada's put out this seminal work from Alan. The skydiving scene is one of my fave compositions of his, hilariously serious at 6:00
Saw the film for the first time - and I LOVED it. Really an underappreciated gem about having grown up, the end of an era. Costner is magnificent. And the big twist at the end... boy, was I brokenhearted, but in a sweet, poignant way.
It is a bad ass release I lusted for & was not let down...and since you said it first MV, the B word. No contest. It had THE worst sound of many of those things, and didn't even near, in running time, the Intrada. I can see some dopey people try & argue that in some cases, but definitely not this one...FWIW. And it's not comedic really, I'd peg it more as an action score...and being Silvestri '85 too!?! Odd. There, showed you, take that Gerhard!! :-p
Don't care for the film but I never knew this soundtrack existed. My main interest would be the music by Pat Metheny. Is that on it too? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIaU94SXj9Y or is it one of those occasions where they used an existing track like the case of "Falling in love"?
