Wow! Treat for Basil Poledouris AND Hans Zimmer fans!

World premiere 2-CD release of both composer's powerful soundtracks for Randal Kleiser filming of Jack London's outdoor boy & wolf tale WHITE FANG, presented by Walt Disney Pictures, starring Ethan Hawke, Klaus Maria Brandauer, James Remar. CD1 offers rich, evocative score by Poledouris, given primary credit in finished film. Stately main theme in major key anchors, while numerous motifs, smaller ideas create multi-layered musical tapestry of turn-of-the-19th-century gold prospecting in Alaska. In contrast are sequences both frightening, tender. Several cues never before heard add depth to impressive score.

But there's much more! CD2 offers second score by Hans Zimmer, much of it also featured in film, with completely different thematic material spotlighting composer's then new meld of symphony with synthesizer. Early-ish Zimmer score offers perhaps his largest-scale scoring to that date. Powerful themes, aggressive action, rhythmic adventure, tingling suspense, gentle warmth... it's all here! And there's still more: also find exciting "Bear Attack" co-written by Shirley Walker & Zimmer as well as additional cues by Fiachra Trench. Finally, numerous saloon source cues composed by Poledouris round out lengthy 2-CD package.

Newly-mixed and presented in dynamic stereo from both 24-track analog masters (format of choice for Poledouris), 32-track digital masters (format of choice for Zimmer), all vaulted in mint condition at Disney. Beautiful booklet design by Joe Sikoryak includes complete cue assembly & composer details for both scores plus informative notes from Jeff Bond. Two exciting scores from the same movie, available at last! Basil Poledouris conducts his score, recorded in Burbank, Shirley Walker conducts Hans Zimmer's score, recorded at Air-Edel Studios in London. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD release available while quantities and interest remain!

For $24.99 @ http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.7430/.f

Wow. That looks like quite a cool package of music. I am quite tempted to order, finances regardless.

Cool release! Is there just one release today?

Yes, just one release today.

But it's a double whammy by itself. TWO scores by TWO different composers for the same film. I had almost given up hope of ever seeing this one being made available.

Ordered withOUT hesitation!

Wow. Just... wow.

I never thought Basil's score would see the light of day, or the Zimmer score.

Thanks Intrada!

I've never seen this film, but ordered instantly nevertheless. I'm not even going to listen to the samples, so it'll be a true virgin spin. Can't wait!

Wonderful to have the Poledouris score. Ordered immediately.
I do hope that on the site's excellent cover thread, someone can post a nicely-retouched cover in high resolution for the new CD, with Zimmer's name removed.

A female friend of mine loves this score so much that she had the main theme sheet music tattooed on her wrist (so that as you turn the wrist the music "plays"). This CD will make her day!

Hey Mountain Man Dave!

I haven't seen the film, but I just started reading the novel (for the first time!) yesterday in the hopes that this would indeed be released by Intrada today, and voilĂ ! I'm sure it'll make for great background "mood music" while reading the novel. After that, I'll check out the film.
