Press Release from Varese Sarabande:
Another exciting new Deluxe Edition for this batch is Maurice Jarre's "Almost An Angel" from 1990. It's been a while since our last Jarre release and we are so happy to revisit this beautifully romantic score from our dear friend. A little mystical, magical and spiritual, Jarre's "Almost An Angel" let Maurice paint on a large canvas, with soaring themes and the beautiful song ' Some Wings,' sung by Vanessa Williams. We even include the original album sequence, with the cues edited the way Maurice has done originally for the original Varèse album, now all newly mastered.
Petty thief Terry Dean (Paul Hogan) is involved in a car accident that appears to claim his life. But before he can enter the pearly gates, he is stopped in his tracks by God (Charlton Heston), who sends Terry back to the world of the living in order to make up for past mistakes. Back on earth, Terry undertakes an effort to live a better life and decides to volunteer at a shelter for troubled kids. Unfortunately, it isn't long before his criminal past threatens to catch up with him.
