MISSING IN ACTION

Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume ISC 91
Date: 1984
Time: 1:13:57
Tracks: 19
World premiere of original soundtrack from Joseph Zito Vietnam POW action movie with Chuck Norris. First film in franchise (albeit second one filmed) carries pulsating action score by Jay Chattaway. Chattaway has unique scoring method, creates lengthy rhythm foundations & sustained ideas, then writes multiple layers of melodic & harmonic material above that can be mixed together or used as separate ideas onto themselves. Other times sparse foundations simply play alone. Stark, dramatic scoring! Numerous layers of orchestra & electronics were recorded separately and even though masters had been handled a lot, tracked into other productions, stored in multiple locations and showed the signs of wear, happily all individual layers survived intact for our CD. Ironically, all 24-track elements were mixed down to mono and preserved in that format only (as was film itself) so our CD features complete 74-minute score in mono. That said, several cues were re-mixed into multi-track stereo in 1984 for re-use in subsequent features and will appear on upcoming stereo CD of Chattaway's complete BRADDOCK: MISSING IN ACTION III soundtrack. So collect 'em all! Jay Chattaway conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1000 copies! SOLD OUT!
