This is a great, catchy synth score from Silvestri from a period when he was at his most creative. Been content listening to a Vinyl rip I made but would love a nice gleeming remaster on CD. Is this a Varese Perpetuity title?

I don't believe it's a perpetuity title but it is overlooked nonetheless, I hope it will be part of Varese' future club releases.

I would like to see the re-released, but I would think it was way down the list. How many times has DELTA FORCE been released. Yes, I know that was Chuck Norris.

It is a terrible movie. That might make a difference.

Terrible? Really? I actually thought it was quite entertaining and had good special effects for that time. The ledge story I always found cringeworthy but I have a fear of heights. That bird was evil! wink

Yeah Francis. I think it is poorly made.
Then again, most King pictures are not very good.

James Woods is the redeeming thing about this one. Overall I just mean that the demand for the score for this is probably somewhat relative to the limitations on the love for this film. Jerry Goldsmith is one exception where no matter how terrible his films were there was still a pretty big demand for his score.

I am not feeling that power for Silvestri, much as I like some of his stuff.

Well it is early Silvestri synths and that is not my favorite style of his, as a matter of fact I first didn't care for the score but its at times cartoonish quality grew on me and I wont deny that the nostalgia about the movie helps in that department. I still wouldn't mind a 1000 unit Varese Club edition, it did have a prior lp release like Children of the Corn did and that sold out fast at 1000.

I have never seen it, and have only marginal interest in the film, but I LOVE Silvestri's synth scores of the 80s. So bring it on! (providing it's not just horror stingers and stuff).

If Clan Of The Cave Bear warranted a CD club re-issue, then this surely must.

Clan of the Cave Bear wasn't an LP reissue, it was an Encore CD reissue.

I noticed the score to Cat's Eye was used in a Seinfeld episode. It's in the episode where Kramer is being chased by The Cable Guy.

Oh, wow, I think you're right? I always figured that piece was by Jonathan Wolf, but now that you mention it, it does sound like music I remember from the film. Weird.

Because it sucks.

Not as much as people who post on topics they don't even care about.

Iv'e always been partial to Silvestri's synth scores because he always came up with really cool catchy hooks to drag you in. The scores in general could be so-so but that theme was awesome. Delta Force, No Mercy anyone?
The main theme to Cat's Eye could easily be mistaken as an early synth demo of his Back To the Future theme.
