  • Exciting treat for Bruce Broughton & action score fans! World premiere release of powerhouse score by Broughton for Touchstone Pictures 1988 action movie, directed by Ferdinand Fairfax. Four elite Navy SEALS are captured in waters of North Korea, their teenage offspring launch into dangerous rescue operation, Broughton leads the way! Rousing score comes between composer's Silverado and Tombstone, offers quality on a par with both. Keynote here is thundering action! Cool architecture of film and score allows Broughton to continually build upon thematic elements for first half, then unleash non-stop wall of powerful excitement. Last four cues offer sensational "rescue" music with virtuoso playing by large orchestra, dynamically captured by Armin Steiner at 20th Century Fox Studios Scoring Stage over five days during February 1988. Many lengthy cues another big asset. When all is said and done, Broughton wraps score with one of the most rousing finishes of his career, bringing muscular Americana main theme to fore in resounding fashion. Though moments of respite do play a role, especially during suspenseful & atmospheric initial Korea sequences, Broughton probably offers more knockout action music for this score than any other of his works to date. Pure dynamite! Presented from pristine condition complete stereo session masters courtesy Walt Disney Music & Touchstone Pictures. Bruce Broughton conducts, delivers a bullseye!

  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    Bruce Broughton literally came to the rescue of this action film with thrilling music that kept everything moving at a brisk pace. Most of the score made it into the film intact—although Broughton’s original music for the underwater sequence (“Diving SEALS”) was replaced with a portion of the “End Credits” and the “News” cue was dropped in favor of source music by other artists. The 98-minute feature sports 68 minutes of music (including source material)—most of that consisting of original orchestral score.

    This album was prepared from the two-track stereo scoring session mixes (preserved in perfect condition) made by Armin Steiner at Twentieth Century Fox Studios during February 1988. In addition to the score heard in the film, these complete masters also allowed us to include Broughton’s unused “Diving SEALS” and “News” cues, heard here for the first time.

    The score is presented on this CD in film order (including the deleted cues, sequenced as intended). Following the score proper are two source cues composed and conducted by Broughton on the last day of the scoring sessions, as well as an alternate version of “JJ” which is abbreviated from the original version and streamlines the embellishing woodwind and percussion figures.

    Get ready now to ride to the rescue with Bruce Broughton— his baton and a full symphony orchestra in tow!

    —Douglass Fake
