I haven't seen this in 20 years. But I just have to say:

"ANGELS!!!"

God I miss old school Silvestri.

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.

So sad to find that Pat Metheny's song is not on there. It would have made for such a great CD.

Never liked the film but man hearing Pat's song was a great experience.

Can't wait. 80's Silvestri is better than ice cream.

Ordered this along with:

Clear and Present Danger
Dressed to Kill
Beyond the Poseidon Adventure
Dreamscape

I love getting big orders like this in the mail. Ripping open all the shrink wrapping and reading liner notes while I poop.

I was completely enchanted by the use of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays from "As Falls" that plays over the end wedding and dance, one of the best, extended uses of "source" music ever.

Also loved how "Spooky" is used

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

I think that Skydive music is a classical piece that was used in place of Silvestri's music.

Shostakovitch? But Silvestri recorded a similar cue too for that scene... if I remember correctly.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who does that too!

Anyways, just listened to the samples and really enjoyed what I heard. I'll be adding this to my next order.

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.

AVAILABLE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 7 2015 OR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

For those who don't have this, "Plane Take-Off" is truly worth the price of admission.

I cannot believe where we have reached a time when Fandango has not only been released, but is about to go out of print! This was on people's wish lists forever and ever when I was a young collector.

1. Comedy is a tough sell
2. Bootleggers blow

Fantastic release! Buy it if you don't have it.

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"?

Disco Stu, YOU answer your question above!
Silvestri wrote something similar in style to the Metheny piece, which IS on the CD.
But they still used Metheny in the film.
