At last! The 2-CD premiere of Bruce Broughton’s complete, wildly popular soundtrack for Steven Spielberg’s presentation of Young Sherlock Holmes, directed by Barry Levinson, written by Chris Columbus, starring Nicholas Rowe.
Broughton originally selected about 36 minutes of music for the original 1985 album. To present the entire 90-minute work plus several alternates and “extras,” Intrada was fortunate to have access to the actual 2″ 24-track scoring session masters, housed at Paramount in pristine condition. (Fans familiar with the earlier LP may enjoy knowing that those tracks appear now in their full length, unedited versions as recorded and not in their truncated LP counterparts.) The stereo sonics are stunning, even by today’s standards. Through the combined courtesies of Paramount Pictures, Geffen Records and UMG, this magnificent complete soundtrack finally becomes a long-awaited reality! Bruce Broughton conducts the Sinfonia of London. 2-CD set, now available in the Intrada MAF series. – Intrada Records
