My holy grail of Holdridge's, "Mr. Mom", has yet to be released in any form (Intrada??). Anyway, are there any released scores of his that really stand out? Signature 80s style? Upbeat? I am open to suggestions.
Probably the closest to what you're asking for (signature 80s style, upbeat) is SPLASH. It's grandly orchestral, with a gorgeous Love Theme, but also features light pop rhythm arrangements popular for the time, not unlike MR MOM. There's so much of his stuff unreleased it's a crime. Amongst the many things I'd love to see released is the London LP rerecording of SPLASH, a much fuller and broader recording (Royal Philharmonic) than the lighter Hollywood studio film session.
