First US CD release with FSM's customary high
standards of presentation with extensive notes and not limited in quantity.
Previously only available as a rare and expensive WB German CD and WB Japan CD.
FSM note they did try to source the missing cues and alternates to the album
arrangements but were unable to find any master tapes.
Guitarist, Pat Metheny was originally asked to write the score,
but realised he was hardly qualified and declined. Thankfully
the makers then sort out Jerry Goldsmith but asked the composer
to utilise the talents of Metheny as instrumentalist on his score.
Goldsmith went on to write one of his most inspirational works
combining symphony orchestra with the Pan flutes of the Andes,
that musically perfectly play Chile, while Pat Metheny's
guitar supports the composer's gorgeous thematic material. A
beautiful score that showcases how orchestra and electronics
can work in perfect harmony. Goldsmith's landmark score
is a masterpiece and unbelievably failed to take the Oscar back
in 83, losing to a classically inspired Right Stuff???
