THANKSGIVING PROMISE, THE

Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 252
Date: 1986
Tracks: 28
Time = 57:50

World premiere release of Bruce Broughton soundtrack from Walt Disney television film directed by Beau Bridges, with director as star (plus other family members Lloyd Bridges, Jordan Bridges, Jeff Bridges), Millie Perkins, Jason Bateman. After accepting pay, then promising neighbor he would nurse injured turkey for one month and deliver it fattened, ready for dinner table, young boy struggles valiantly to save bird from fate. Bruce Broughton brings his rustic scoring sensibilities to family tale, anchoring with outdoor melody in folk manner, then adds layers of warmth, drama, humor. His palette of colors includes an array of strings, woodwinds, piano, guitars, dulcimer, recorder, harmonica, vibraphone plus light percussion. His harmonic vernacular basks in warm glow of his signature, beloved Americana idiom. Highlights are many but lengthy "Axing Chester" deserves spotlight: sequence is tense, dramatic with elements of danger, suspense. Entire CD presented in stereo from two-track scoring session masters vaulted in pristine condition. Bruce Broughton conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

This doesn't sound like a turkey at all...

Hmmmmm. I don't know this one. I'll have to check the samples before I decide to buy.

And here was me thinking it was just tin eared film producers and directors who didn't give a toot about Bruce Broughton and his wonderful music!!
Well, I for one will be ordering a copy of this CD within my next SAE order.
Thanks Intrada smile

I've just played the first two samples at Intrada.
Unmistakeable Broughton smile
I love the way he uses the recorder in his scores, this one has some Boy Who Could Fly flavour via YSH in the Main Title.
To say I cannot wait to have this CD in my possession is an understatement.

There may be another Bruce Broughton release before years end (so says Roger at Intrada).
With his Buck Rogers series 2 scores and a re-issue of Young Sherlock Holmes to come in 2014, the BBBandwagon has hit the road again smile
I hope the new one might be The Rescue, via their Disney deal. But I'll take any Broughton they're willing to throw my way!

That would be nice. Of course, Jacknife or a complete Baby's Day Out would be nicer, still.

As for this one, good samples. I might get this.

I'm gonna do a Maleficio here wink and drag this back to the front page, just to say it's really bugging me that I am having to wait to hear it, as I am biding my time for other titles to go with it for a SAE order (but I guess the wait and anticipation is all part of the joy of soundtracks and collecting).
So far, Cocoon (expanded) and this need another score or two to complete the order. So I Married An Axe Murderer will make it 3, so I might make that do and go ahead and order.
I'd love to hear comments about it from others who may already have it.

I have this in my possession at last!
Bruce Broughton has been like the old bus joke this year...you wait all year for one and then two come along at once (I also got So I Married... in my SAE box).
I plan on playing it tomorrow and will be back to chime in with my thoughts thereafter.
Anyone care to discuss?

Nope! Okay, let me...
The Main Theme is unmistakeable Broughton and somehow manages to combine whisps of his themes from Young Sherlock Holmes, Boy Who Could Fly and Old Man & The Sea into an all new theme.
He says in the notes he was basically writing a Waltons score and that's exactly how it sounds, with lots of lovely solo wind writing and harmonica n stuff. I said above the Main Title featured recorder after a sample listen, but turns out it's a tin (penny) whistle.
There's also some cheesy 80's source/rock music by Broughton, one of which merges into a bit more score proper.
This is a score I never would have dreamed would get a CD release, but while there's a label like Intrada around, who love and champion his music like no other, I guess us Bruce Broughton fans can hope and dream for anything!
Keep 'em comin'.

Now if we can get Broughton's original HAWAII FIVE-O scores released, I would be most greatful!..:-)

Hopefully, this and Axe Murderer are selling well enough for Intrada for them to consider such a release.
I know his popular 80's releases sell well (and usually sell-out quite quickly), but his smaller TV and lesser known score releases are probably a lot tougher to shift.
His Buck Rogers scores are coming in 2014, so at least there will be more new Bruce Broughton music coming soon.
For now, I'm enjoying the hell out of this and Axe Murderer smile

Colour me intrigued Kev. I was somewhat on the fence about this one and Axe, but you've done a great job of illustrating the reasons why these releases are must buys.

I'll be getting them in the new year with my next Intrada order.
