Mark Isham's Nowhere to Run
World Premiere Release of the Complete Score –
Available April 6, 2012!




http://store.fortytwotradingco.com/nowheretorun.html

Perseverance Records PRD 047
$16.95
Limited to 3000 copies.

Perseverance Records is proud to premiere the release of the long lost soundtrack to the 1993 Jean-Claude Van Damme action film, Nowhere To Run.

This release marks the fifth movie soundtrack from a Van Damme action film released by Perseverance. It should be noted that each has sold very well and the reason for this is simple...Van Damme's films are cult classics and are still watched by millions yearly. Nowhere To Run was another in Van Damme's string of box office winners. For over a decade, he was the biggest action star in the world. Van Damme will be appearing in Sylvester Stallone's newest Expendables film, which is due out in theaters this year. This will only serve to generate more interest in his films and have more potential customers for the music heard in the movies.

The score was composed by Mark Isham. He was hired to score this film due to his marvelous work on films such as The Hitcher, Mrs Soffel, The Moderns and the Oscar nominated A River Runs Through It, to name a few. Isham had composed scores for over 20 films before getting the nod to write the music for Nowhere To Run. Besides writing music for movies, Mark has also had a very successful career in jazz music. He has released albums on Virgin Records, Windham Hill and his own label.

Been wanting this one for a while. Some of Isham's best work has been with Robert Harmon (this, The Hitcher, Gotti and Highwaymen, the last two still awaiting release).

I had just about skipped over this thread as I thought it was a discussion rather than a release announcement. Might I recommend revising the thread title with "New Perseverance:" or something to that effect? smile

Fifth? Wow. I do hope that they (or some other label) consider a release of Pino Donaggio's THE ORDER.

This music sounds okay.

Will be picking this one up in the near future.

Van Damme will be appearing in Sylvester Stallone's newest Expendables film, which is due out in theaters this year. This will only serve to generate more interest in his films and have more potential customers for the music heard in the movies.

Hey Robin when you're finished with all the Van Damme movie scores, could you please release the scores to Chuck Norris action classics.

THE OCTAGON - Richard Halligan (1980)
A FORCE OF ONE - Richard Halligan (1979)
FORCED VENGEANCE - William Goldstein (1982)

I dig the samples, so I'll definitely be picking this up. Best cover art ever.

For over a decade, he was the biggest action star in the world.

I think Arnold Schwarzenegger might disagree.

Since I first watched this movie back when it got released I have wanted a score release. In my mind this is Mark Isham`s best score and it is now on CD.

Fifth? Wow. I do hope that they (or some other label) consider a release of Pino Donaggio's THE ORDER.

Unforunately the music to The Order will most likely not be released due to the tapes being heavily damaged due to unforseen problems in the post-production.

In the meantime, please enjoy this release. Apart from the complete score, you also get to hear a cool alternate main title not available before - read the liner notes to learn why two main titles had to be written.

YES, I second this notion! Would also like to see An Eye For An Eye (1980) and Silent Rage (1981).

Nowhere to Run is great score and will be easily purchased. Thanks Perseverance

Who the F wants downloads...I could hunt down a boot then...no a physical CD is the only way that gets any $ from me.

Nowhere to Run ordered in a heartbeat, thanx Robin smile

I've never heard this one.
Is it orchestral, electronic or a mixture of both?
Also, does it have any of that lovely Isham folk/americana scoring, or is it harsh and atonal?
Thanks.

From what I remember, it's kind of like The Hitcher with some Point Break thrown in.

I caught a chunk of this film on the telly last night and some of the softer/guitar stuff was real nice. Reminded me a bit of Kamen's lovely stuff from Roadhouse (which I love).
So I've just bagged a decent priced copy from those Amazon Women on the Moon and look forward to hearing some new Isham from the period I like his stuff most.

Amazon is a fantastic fun flick, good taste there Kevin smile

'Run' is a very nice album, I enjoy it, but am also a big Isham fan anyway.
I never get bored with it, nice presentation - what else can one say!
He did a lot of mid-level type drama/action in this era, The Getaway springs
to mind as needing a cd. It's been fun for me to watch Isham's career move
from straight synths/jazz to orchestral to some really strong "symphonic"
writing (Black Dahlia, Miracle).
