At last on CD! Original soundtrack from Michael Mann thriller based on Thomas Harris novel "Red Dragon", starring William Petersen, Joan Allen, Brian Cox. Film introduces notorious serial killer Hannibal Lector to moviegoers, inspires composers Michel Rubini & The Reds to create potent mix of instrumental music, vocals. Style of flashy music became customary with legendary director of MIAMI VICE, HEAT, other classics. Intrada presents all contents of original LP from masters vaulted at UMG, then licenses one additional previously-unreleased score track that composers state has been oft-requested. Cool album!
This release of the original soundtrack for Manhunter presents the music in CD format for the first
time. It was created from the original album master tapes stored in the vaults controlled by the Universal
Music Group and mastered at their Xepa Digital Studios in Boyers, Pennsylvania.
In addition to the complete program as it appeared on the original MCA label LP from 1986,
our CD includes one previously unreleased score selection, “Jogger’s Stakeout”, presented at the
personal request of the composers, who mentioned this particular sequence as being one of the
most asked-for pieces of music they had received from fans over the years. As it was never included
in the original album, we are most pleased to finally premiere it here, mastered directly from the
original session mixes made by the composers. Enjoy!
