    Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 208
    Date: 1980
    Tracks: 26
    Time = 49:27

    World premiere of richly melodic Maurice Jarre soundtrack for Charles Jarrott family adventure, presented by Walt Disney Pictures, starring Elliott Gould, Genevieve Bujold, Ricky Schroder. Gould flies WWII aircraft with Bujold, kids, animals on board, then crashes on island inhabited by pair of Japanese soldiers confident war is still in progress. Setting allows Jarre to write for large orchestra with expanded brass section including two baritone horns, euphonium (small tuba.) Koto, samisen, shakuhachi plus nine percussionists help create fascinating template for magnum opus TV mini-series score to SHOGUN. To present complete soundtrack, including tuneful "Half Of Me" song, Intrada was given access to entire scoring session masters, amongst first digital recordings ever made. (This was scored right after THE BLACK HOLE, also available on Disney/Intrada label.) Twin 16-track recorders were synchronized at original sessions, offering total of 32 tracks! Every roll of 2" tape survived in perfect condition, including all brass chorales, separate Japan ensemble sessions, chorus sessions, vocal tracks. Transfers were made by Disney engineers, then newly mixed and mastered at Intrada for dynamic stereo audio! Rare Maurice Jarre score is exciting treat for his fans! Maurice Jarre conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!
