Certainly deserves it's own thread....

INTRADA Announces:

Composed and Conducted by BRUCE BROUGHTON

Composer Bruce Broughton was relatively new to Hollywood when he was tapped to score Young Sherlock Holmes, having worked mostly in television for the first decade of his career. Director Barry Levinson’s kinetic film, with its fluid pace and wide variety of tones, presented him with a fresh, yet daunting challenge. Broughton rose to the occasion with a stunning, wall-to-wall symphonic work that made a deep impression on soundtrack fans and industry professionals alike, earning a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Composition and winning a Saturn Award for Best Music from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films.

The original MCA Records soundtrack album, released on LP and cassette, received high marks in Billboard, who praised it as “a traditional orchestral score, which Broughton infuses with both dash and sweetness.” Remarkably, however, the MCA album never made the transition to a commercial CD. This, coupled with the fact that a great deal of outstanding material did not appear on that album, has made the present release one of the most eagerly anticipated of all time. To present Broughton’s entire score, including alternates, Intrada obtained the 2” 24-track 30 ips session masters recorded by Eric Tomlinson at EMI Abbey Road Studios in London during September 1985 and vaulted in pristine condition at Paramount Pictures. New digital stereo mixes were made at Intrada under the composer’s supervision. The resulting audio is crisp, clear and detailed. The liner notes also contain a new, spirited interview with Bruce Broughton.

Young Sherlock Holmes was the brainchild of three primary parents: writer Chris Columbus, executive, producer Steven Spielberg and director Barry Levinson. The central premise of Young Sherlock Holmes suggests that Holmes and Watson did not first meet as adults in a chemical laboratory at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, but as adolescents. In the story, a series of baffling murders puts young Holmes on the trail of an Egyptian cult practicing human sacrifice in the bowels of London. Dismissed by the police and maligned by his peers, the budding detective sets out with only a few close allies to unravel the plot—culminating in a fiery confrontation with an evil mastermind, bent on revenge.

Have the LP and the promo. One of my favourite scores and my favourite Broughton (and I like most scores from him)

I'm taking this (happy to see it did not included some of the promo's merging of tracks) and the samples do sound fantastic!

With this and PSYCHO II in the same batch I can not remember a better batch of releases in recent history

I remember having the U.S. LP and played it so much I wore the record out. I did manage the get the original promo all those years ago. This new release will make my third CD, along with the original studio sessions.

Love the samples. I have been hoping to see this released again and Im glad it has. I guess good things come to those who wait (and I wont need to pay those exorbitant prices on eBay). Also big thanks for Intrada making it an MAF so at least it will be around for a while so everyone who wants a copy can get one.

I'm not sure how I was able to make it to almost 45 years old and not have seen this film or ever heard a single note of the music. Needless to say, after listening to the samples, it was quickly ordered.

Why isn't this thread on fire? It should be.

Incalculable to thanks Doug and his great team!

I think it's thunder has been stolen by a certain Norman Bates!
Plus, we have pondered and discussed this one over the past week (we knew it was coming) whereas Norman came slicing out of nowhere!

I recommend the movie itself, of course we are all buying this fine CD release today. Previously Netflix had this streaming, it might have expired. Otherwise there is not a bluray, oddly, but there is a DVD. I found the film pretty entertaining, and sometimes surprising. I think it was nicely made all around, and very atmospheric visually. Too bad it never took fire in order to make another couple or so films like they wanted it to.

I do have the previous CD version - but Norman Bates put me in such a good mood that I decided to buy this new version, too.
