Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records and StudioCanal present a re-issue of Trevor Jones’ majestic orchestral score for the action blockbuster CLIFFHANGER, celebrating its 30th anniversary.
Directed by Renny Harlin and starring Sylvester Stallone, John Lithgow and Janine Turner, the plot is about a botched mid-air heist that results in suitcases full of cash being searched for by various groups throughout the Rocky Mountains.
Considered one of the 90s best action scores, and one of the Trevor Jones’ (EXCALIBUR, THE DARK CRYSTAL, LABYRINTH, FROM HELL) most highly regarded works, this orchestral tour de force returns to CD with the same program as the previous La-La Land Records album released in 2017 and long sold out. Disc 1 and the first three tracks of Disc 2 present the score to the film from the original digital 5.1 film mixes while the remainder of disc 2 presents the original soundtrack album remastered from the original stereo digital album mixes. An additional track that was cut from the original soundtrack album is included as a bonus.
This 30th anniversary edition has been produced and supervised by Neil S. Bulk, mixed by Michael McDonald from the original digital master tapes and mastered by James Nelson. The package includes a 16-page booklet with updated liner notes by Jeff Bond and original artwork by Renato Casaro.
