GOTCHA!
Music by BILL CONTI
INTRADA ISC 444

Bill Conti's score to the lighthearted, cold-war espionage, teen action-adventure thriller Gotcha! was one of many scores that got the short shrift on vinyl back in the '80s. It was a time when many a soundtrack collector would walk into their favorite record store and pick up a copy of The Goonies ("just one Dave Grusin cut?!?"), Ghostbusters ("just two Elmer Bernstein cuts?!?"), or The Karate Kid ("NO Bill Conti tracks???") and essentially leave heartbroken. While many of these wrongs have been righted with score-only releases over the years, there are still a handful needing to be addressed. As with Intrada's earlier release of Jerry Goldsmith's The Lonely Guy, Intrada has now righted the wrong of none of Bill Conti's score showing up on the original LP of Gotcha!, even though two score tracks were on the LP (hint to this riddle: they were not film versions).

With the steadfast cooperation of Universal Pictures and Universal Music Group, Intrada presents a score-only release of Bill Conti's lean score. Film antics aside, Conti plays it straight as the film unfolds in Eastern Europe with a score that would have been at home in a James Bond film like The Living Daylights, and with a warm nod to James Horner's Russian thriller music to Gorky Park. While the score is relatively brief, the album is rounded out with a host of alternates and extras. Unfortunately the vocals that appeared on the original LP release were not available for licensing.

Starring Anthony Edwards (Jonathan) and Linda Fiorentino (Sasha), Gotcha! is named after the game of assassination played on Jonathan's college campus. On a trip to Europe with his best friend, Jonathan meets the sophisticated, older woman Sasha. She envelops him in the task of retrieving a package from East Germany, where things turn dark and serious as Jonathan is caught up in a game of cold-war espionage.

Just ordered mine!

Edwards' facial expression is that who's just seen the future and realised he's going to be on one of the biggest TV shows on the planet despite going bald (and not being Telly Savalas) while her career's going to flatline colossally to the extent of being left out of the sequel to Men In Black.

I don't remember Conti's score from this - it has been forever since I've seen it. But, for some reason, the ridiculous theme song is STILL in my head.

I am probably going to buy this one. It would have been nice if it included the main song (which bookends both the beginning and end of the film).

They wanted to include all the songs - too much red tape.

Actually not a red tape issue. We've never been intimidated by red tape! They just couldn't be licensed.

Yes I'm very happy! I don't mind the songs not being on there, the 50 minutes of Conti music is more than I could have hoped for.

Does anyone know the order of all the music (composed by Conti and the songs) as it appears in the film? If you combined the original soundtrack songs along with the newly released score.

Enjoying this first listen.

Immediately thinking playlist of Gotcha! - D.A.R.Y.L. - Cloak & Dagger - WarGames.
