The "Yor's World" song is a true Eurotrash classic. Nothing in the world can really prepare you for seeing Yor hijack a pteradactyl he's just killed and using it as a hang glider to attack the cave people who have taken his special lady friend.

Good to hear that someone else is enjoying this.

Though I am beginning to think that I am the only person who bought this score & junked the Scott segment whilst keeping the De Angelis portion.

The De Angelis score has that early 80s electro vibe a la Escape From New York- it brings me right back to that period. Cheap & trashy...!

After a few listens, the Scott section still has no appeal for me.

Just got this with my copy of The Touch, and it's going into the CD player next. BSX had it on sale for $9.99. How can you go wrong with John Scott for a mere $10 bucks?

John's score is great, it's just too bad the orchestra wasn't quite up to it and it shows here and there.

When we did this one, he really wanted to RE-RECORD IT, but that just wasn't in the cards.

Just ordered this. I have owned the earlier release as soon as it came out years ago, but I understand that this one has a better sound.
Anyway, quite an accomplishment this music. But Scott´s well used to compose great music for not so great films after all, isn´t he?

I ordered this when it was releases, without listening to samples. It was one of the more pleasant surprise of that year for me. Unfortunately I have too few John Scott scores in my collection, but theme from Yor deserves its place in my Maestro Folder.
On an unrelated subject, what do you folks suppose would be the best way to contact a person, namely Kari Tuhkanen, just in case he might be interested in connecting and communicating with other Finnish film music aficionados?

John Scott, unintended camp and Reb Brown, thanks for reminding me. I knew there was a soundtrack that I had to order. But ai that "Yor's world" song oy vay. Well I can use it to scare cats.

Now if only this were a start of Reb Brown related soundtracks. It could be the road that leads to my dream: a CD with the ORIGINAL soundtrack of


And for those who think I mean that in some ironic way, think again and again. I dare you to listen to this and not feel a rush of joy and a sadness that this kind of music no longer is made.



Oh please if only this were released (maybe on a double whammy: Marvel classics presents Captain America and Spider-man, original music from the classic TV series).

I´m with you, Disco Stu. Ah, those 70´s sensibilities, all gone so long ago. I´m a son of said decade, and of course nostalgia plays a big part here, and yet, that feeling the music imparts, you´re clip being a fine example...
