Two titles from the 80s. One from the mid-80s from a year overflowing with incredible scores so it was easy to miss this one. It came out on LP, was reissued on a slightly expanded CD paired with another score, but this time it's fully expanded to over 70 minutes and includes some percussion overdubs that hadn't been included previously. It's one of my favorite scores of that year, yet a neglected work. Take a listen and you can't help but soar.

The second title is a premiere release from the late 80s from a composer who was carving himself out as an action composer at that same time with a couple of hit franchises. Interestingly the score may appear brief (25 minutes or so) and disjointed in the film, but that's because they chopped it up, moved it around and dropped a lot of music. Now restored to its full glory and including four pivotal songs (including one that is critical to the narrative), at long last this tale of a seemingly simple errand gone seriously wrong now comes to CD at long long last.

Right composer on 2 though batty....
We all think it's Adventures in Babysitting by Kamen now, which would be terrific.

The first release could be Transylvania 6-5000 by Lee Holdridge from 1985. Released on LP by Varese, then paired with Korgoth Of Barbaria by BSX in 2009.

OK, must confess I cheated by looking at Roger's FSM article 1985: The Last Great Year for Film Music. It seemed the only candidate!

My first thought for the second tight was After Hours.

I really thought the second title was Licence To Kill until the statement regarding the pivotal song and 'errand' :(
No idea on the first - I presume 'soar' is a clue

Adventures in Babysitting, with the four Robert Kraft-produced songs, sounds right for the second title. It's easy to tell that Kamen's score was chopped-up in the film, which was not uncommon for the man. I've been looking forward to this.

The Aviator seems more likely. Remember that Intrada has been releasing numerous scores from newly-discovered MGM multi-tracks as of late.

Could be. Just a guess on my part :) Roger did say above that the title was one of his favourite scores that year, and it's in his article whereas The Aviator isn't. But I take your point!

I was actually thinking the other day we need more Kamen, it's been a while since Road House & Renegades.
The 23rd will be exciting for sure

ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING - Michael Kamen
it's about time for this one!
I can finally get the babysittin' blues!

THE AVIATOR - Dominic Frontiere
Cool, a Varèse LP expansion nicely timed with their upcoming club releases and that LP to CD subscription set launch.

La-La Land slightly expanded the The Aviator and paired it off with Frontiere's other score, Hang Em High years ago.

Finally, more Kamen!!!
