Complete original soundtrack from John Milius WWIII scenario starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey. Basil Poledouris anchors with stirring Americana main theme, adds rich melodic sensibility for gorgeous Colorado landscapes, then surrounds with powerhouse action music for numerous battles. Intrada takes initial 1985 debut release that started label, remixes everything from multi-track session masters for dynamic, crystal clear audio. Definitive release adds half hour of additional music including dramatic execution scene, exciting Wolverine retaliation sequence, tender final music for Toni's death plus world premiere of entire alternate finale, many other gems. Stunning blend of Coplandesque Americana, classic eighties action played by massive, pumped-up orchestra with crisp layer of electronics! Basil Poledouris conducts.
