You can never have enough Faltermeyer! One of my last holy grails is the first Fletch score.
What about TOP GUN? A score-only release of that is equally wanted by me, even if useable "unmentionables" exist out there. With the new film coming out this year, that would be an ideal opportunity to release one. But I understand there are all kinds of difficulties "behind the scenes".
No question Top Gun needs a release. We know Lala has it on the back burner so it’s only a matter of time. But Fletch for me is Faltermeyers opus.... such an infectious score from start to finish. The sequel is great but there’s just something about that first score that makes it better. I was so disappointed when Varèse rereleased the original album and I was dumbfounded that they did not take the opportunity to expand it. Pretty sure Lala would have done it but Varèse put the brakes on any expansion.
