  • World premiere of complete soundtrack by James Horner from third film in popular series drawn from Tom Clancy's exciting Jack Ryan tales, starring Harrison Ford as CIA agent Ryan, fighting drug cartels in South America. Horner creates stirring main theme to anchor score, then surrounds with plethora of cues both wildly exciting, dramatically involved. One highlight out of many is incredible, lengthy "Ambush" sequence, one of Horner's most powerful action cues of all time. Interestingly, original CD release only offered half of score and omitted virtually all action sequences following "Second Hand Copter" sequence. All of them make their premiere here, including riveting climactic helicopter rescue scene ("Woodroom Finale") that introduces exciting new fanfare motifs embellishing rich version of main theme. Entire set mixed, edited and mastered from complete digital scoring session elements courtesy Paramount Pictures. James Horner conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

  • Tech Talk From The CD Producer…

    James Horner fashioned one of his longest film scores for Clear and Present Danger. Although he would typically include the majority of a score’s important cues on his soundtrack albums, for this one he selected just over half of the music recorded for the picture. Interestingly, many of the cues for the last section of the movie (after "Second Hand Copter") were absent. Consequently, all of those sequences that found Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) pressed into action in Colombia, battling drug lords bent on death and destruction, are premiering on this special 2CD set. A highlight of these cues is the riveting "Woodroom"/"Finale" action music that accompanies the hair-raising helicopter rescue sequence.

    To present this powerful score for the first time in its entirety, Paramount Pictures provided Intrada with access to the scoring session masters, recorded and mixed digitally using then-state-of-the-art Sony MSD-1200 Digital Audio Master Disc technology and transferred to two-channel stereo DAT.

    We have presented the score in picture sequence, including the revised film version of the "Main Title" which replaced the early version heard on the original 1994 album (that early version is included within the "Extras" segment of Disc Two). Other extras include an early version of "Looking For Clues" (also featured on the 1994 album) and an early version of "Finding The Prisoners." Everything the composer recorded for the picture appears in our presentation. (Not duplicated here are repeats of certain sections of cues tracked into the picture.)

    One final note about our sequence: "Escobedo's New Friend" was recorded as three separate cues that appeared in the film in this order: Part 2, Part 1 and Part 3. They were edited down and joined together for the 1994 album, but we are including them complete in the correct film sequence (see cue assembly).

    Enjoy now the dynamic and exciting score by James Horner for Clear and Present Danger.
