BUT.... in all seriousness... I bought the original CD as a cut out, and NEVER opened it! In fact, I'm not sure, but I think I sold it to Peter for some credit. In other words.... I've never heard a note of this score... until this very moment; I'm listening to the sound clips..... WOW! Horner took this movie very seriously! GREAT MUSIC! smile

EDIT.... that last track "Balto Returns"... got a HUGE lump in my throat and tears started welling up... Damn you, Horner... why did you have to be flying that plane that fateful day?frownfrown

That's how I felt when I saw the film and "Heritage of the Wolf" played out. It brings me to tears.

I saw this post and I'm happy see it re issued.
I haven't listened to the score in about 15 years. I decided to pull out my copy, and give it another listen. I turned it over and saw a little bit of dust and I began wiping it off with my shirt. But with hardly any pressure the disc just cracked with ease!




Well I guess I'm ordering the reissue now! big grin

Sounds lovely from the samples. Ordered! Crazy to get this so soon after Batteries not Included. Such a nice companion.

Aye, that's a reach.
45 minutes of a 60 minute score is more than highlights.
But yeah, for Horner completists, more music is always welcome.

The review fails to mention that Horner did that same "Schindler" theme in Apollo 13 earlier that year in "Re-Entry & Splashdown."

Also, is Don Davis credited with "Grizzly Bear" on this release? Seems pretty clear that it's him!

"The Dogsled Race" is the best, though.

You misunderstand, it's just so good it has 45 minutes of highlights. big grin
I do like how they used up all but 60 seconds of disc space on this release.

Does anyone feels the excitement of a new James Horner release is accompanied with a bit of a heart break? Am I the only one?

So you’re saying it’s worthy of a deaf buy...

Balto was one of my daughter's favorite dvds when she was little. I was always struck by the seriousness of the story, and actually grateful for the comic relief characters to provide some happier contrast for her.

I was quite taken with the score in the film, and always a little surprised that the used album I picked up didn't do all that much for me. So happy to give this a fresh listen with the additional music - and, as others note, the poignant memory of what Horner brought to films.

I said this in the Delerue thread, but somehow I'm almost looking forward to these more than the Williams' Dracula expansion, much as I know I will love that as well. I guess I need some pretty and heart-tugging music right now.

Nope.


Nope as in you don't feel that, or nope as in he isn't the only one?
