I like the score, I'm just confused by this album presentation. It's two discs but each disc contains the exact same material. Why not take out the source music from disc 1 to fit the complete score and keep the original album?

As much as I hate repetition like that, some of the tracks are different. It even says so in the blrub -- certainly The Flying Circus sounds different, and I imagine the OST might have a couple different takes of some things.


This surprised me. From the samples you can clearly tell the score was arranged differently. To my ears the album and film score always sounded the same. Guess not!

This release would have been announced sooner but the first release got lost during shipping.



You sure this isn't a picture of Varese burning it's defective copies of Starship Troopers and Joe vs the Volcano?

Does anyone happen to know roughly how long it takes for new releases to show up on Intrada's Amazon storefront? I got $31 from that Apple eBook settlement, and I can't think of a better way to spend it than on THE ROCKETEER! smile

Usually a week or two from what I have seen.

Do we pay in dollars or Deutschmarks?

I may not make an honest buck but I don't work for no two bit Nazi.

Sooooo ordered.

I think I'm almost out of "grails". (Buckaroo Banzai!)

Thank you so much, Intrada! Rocketeer to the rescue!

Interesting that the "Love Theme" ("Jenny" on the album) appears on the film soundtrack but isn't featured in the film. Was it written for a particular sequence and then cut? I always assumed it was a concert arrangement like he did with Darby's Theme.

Ha! Yeah, I'm not waiting 1-2 weeks for Amazon for THIS!

Just ordered straight from Intrada. Thank you for the info.

If you read the Intrada blurb, you'll see it was composed for the album, as you suspected. I'm sure they included it in the "film score" portion so that listening experience would include everything.

I love Intrada, am very excited for this release, and ordered it immediately last night!!!!!

I am surprised the pop songs are intermingled into the flow of the main score program, though, as doing so spilled the main program over onto the second disc, and the songs were already going to be on Disc 2 anyway. Oh well, easy enough to change for our own personal listening preferences!

Whatever the reason for the existing playlist, I'll be making my own for iTunes and burning it to CDR for my car. But If I planned on spinning this on a high end home stereo system, I would prefer the entire score be on one disc.

"James Horner pointed out in a interview that he delivered a near 100 minute score to the film that was constantly being edited and changed. "


Did Horner say that he RECORDED 100 minutes or that he WROTE 100 minutes?

I would say that it is both the best movie and best score Horner ever did.
The score and the movie were both very complete and solid works.

Except now, the listening experience requires you to switch discs, entirely unnecessarily.

The songs and album cue "Jenny" should have been kept exclusive to the album presentation on disc 2. It would have made this a perfect release!

Again, I don't mean to be disrespectful, but this is honestly one of the most baffling decisions I've ever seen a specialty label make.

It's certainly up there with LLL's Patriot Games and Masters Of The Universe (the latter corrected, ironically, by Intrada!)

I, for one (and maybe just for one), happen to enjoy the songs intermingled with the score in this case.

Whatever he may have said, it appears he was guilty of either hyperbole or faulty memory when he said it. Not uncommon under any circumstance. I think we sometimes take these casual remarks as gospel when we shouldn't.

Well despite the UK pound falling in recent days I can't resist this

So ordered this, Shawshank Redemption, Five Graves to Cairo and a Pick-up on south street / Dangerous Crossing which moviemusic still seem to have available.

Our economy may be going down the pan, our political parties are disintegrating but at least I'll have some good soundtracks to listen to.
