First CD release of Pino Donaggio soundtrack from David Schmoeller horror thriller with Klaus Kinski as serial killer acting as landlord, peering into private lives of female occupants. Renter Talia Balsam proves to be tough adversary. 1986 film, shot in Italy, is product of Charles Band film production company Empire Pictures which later evolves into horror specialty film group Full Moon Productions. Pino Donaggio steps into his comfort zone, creates music with slashing strings, zigzag figures over pulsating rhythms, other scary musical trademarks. He balances with very attractive themes underscoring lives of occupants. Unusually interesting color is elegiac Hebrew lament, representing landlord Kinski's family ties to Nazis and designed in director Schmoeller's own words to "remind the viewer of the terrible tragedy of the Holocaust". Album originally appears on Varese Sarabande label in 1986, prepared by composer at time of film's release. Intrada CD premiere comes from pristine 1/4" two-track stereo album master made at KM record manufacturing facilities, originally engineered by Michelle Stone. CD retains composer's LP sequencing and audio preferences, including split-second pauses between certain tracks. Graphic booklet design by Joe Sikoryak includes informative liner notes by Andy Dursin plus Flipper artwork that allows you to choose your favorite cover. Natale Massara conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

When I saw INTRADA CRAWLSPACE I immediately thought

Goldsmith TV Movie Score.

Well, fear not. There's always hope.

Good for the Pino fans and always INTRADA, kudos to you!

PINO' nearly always delivers that great melodic theme somewhere.

Time to fish out my old LP and give it a spin.
I haven't played it for years and even then, it wasn't a constant play as I never really took to it like other Donaggio scores of that time.
Didn't David Schmoeller direct Tourist Trap? Now there's a Pino score I crave on CD.
I will give the old Varese LP another go and decide if I'm gonna bite after that.

The Goldsmith score for that TV movie is pretty good. An album would be worthwhile just for the car chase cue.

Anyway, this Pino fan couldn't be more pleased to have this much more interesting score released. A big thanks from me goes to Intrada.

I wish we could get a release for Pino's Tourist Trap, but I will gladly pickup crawlspace in the meantime. Thx Intrada

I'm dipping into this well and drawing overflowing buckets of awesome--vintage Donaggio at his most diverse and creative.

I had the opposite effect with this one.
I took my old LP for another spin and time has not altered my opinion of it and I still don't care for it that much.
The Lament goes through me and apart from one or two tracks, it sounds like warmed over Body Double.
And it's not just this score.
I'm struggling with my recent Pino buys, as Patrick, Passion and Do You Like Hitchcock all left me underwhelmed.
I will give them some more tries, but so far, so not good.

I highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't gotten it yet or anyone who loves Donaggio...put it like this: if you have functioning ears and you don't have this, now you have no excuse.

Damn shame, going so soon.
I almost wish Intrada would return to
numbered editions (??).

Classic Pino, one of my favorites, I'm
grateful to have such a nice edition at last.
I killed my old vinyl of this score.....
