I know that there are maybe some million other titles you would love to see get the light of day, but I have never heard this early James Newton Howard effort, only just so many good things about it, and I always keep a look out for a copy of it.

Who (besides me) would like to see a reissue of James Newton Howard´s ALIVE?

I am with you scorechaser. Only problem is we do not know if and or when it will ever happen. I have not seen the movie in ages, so I am not sure if there is much (or any) extra music.

Im forba reissue for those who missed it or an expanded. I have this and love it.
Sadly with a 2.5 hr film there is only 33'ish minutes of score on cd and the freaking beautiful end song Ave Marie wasn't on it. That song is bt Aaron Neville! I forget how long the cd is but I remember it's around 33 minutes.
I really enjoyed the film a lot and the documentary Alive 20 yrs later is also quite interesting and so sad.

Shucks, I hate these posts that get me thinking a certain title is getting a new release! mad

It's a terrific JN Howard score for a so-so film. The story is INCREDIBLE and I recommend anybody remotely interested in the subject matter to buy Nando Parrado's book MIRACLE IN THE ANDES - it's a life affirming read told by one of the two men who literally walked out of the Andes mountains to save the few survivors of the crash. I can't say enough about how powerful a book it is.

Would buy an expanded ALIVE in a second!

very good 30-something minutes CD, could benefit for a little expanding cause a few excellent cues (the finale!) are missing. Maybe 45 min or so (film has about 60 min of music, I think).

one of JNH bests.

Does it have any good recipes? wink

I went to see this movie with my family when I was 11 or 12 years old and I remember the plane crash, the cannibalism (for lack of better word) and the toothpaste scene vividly. I don't remember the music though.

I sold this one many years ago. For some reason, I found it boring and directionless at the time. I wonder how I would have felt about it today.

I remember not liking the score at all when I saw the film in the theater back in 1993. No themes, I guess.

This score has one of IF not JNH's most beautiful and thought profoking cues, it's called Alberto and it's track 5, some really great writing by JNH.

Haven't heard this in a long time.....will dig it out now!

Great score and probably one of the best end title themes ever!
