THE ROCKETEER
Composed and Conducted by JAMES HORNER
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 357

I love aviation. I’ve always loved flying. I’ve always wanted to
do a movie about flying. And I would love to do it.


-- James Horner

Just over a year ago the world lost maestro James Horner in a tragic accident. A year later we are still devastated by the loss, but resolved to continue to celebrate and preserve his musical legacy for generations to come. As part of that mission, and to keep his music in the forefront of our thoughts, Intrada presents an expanded edition of one of his most beloved scores, the 1991 Walt Disney film, The Rocketeer. The score is particularly fitting because it embodies his passion for flying. But few films were about flight, at their core, the way The Rocketeer is, and Horner seized the opportunity to pen a musical love letter to his muse. He composed one of his most straightforwardly leitmotif-laden scores, with a main theme featuring two distinct personalities: one a calm, majestic melody, lovingly introduced over the film’s main titles; the other with a rocket pack strapped to it, ushered into service for action sequences. Horner wrote two other major leitmotifs: a pining, damsel-in-distress theme for Jenny, and a simple, slithering line for Neville Sinclair. The latter is a slice of uncomplicated menace, usually crawling upward on a solo woodwind or brass instrument. The former is a vintage love theme, oozing old Hollywood. Passion, wavering loyalties and danger are all cooked into Jenny’s theme, which Horner cleverly braids into the Rocketeer theme or Sinclair’s slimy motif as the story demands.

For this important new presentation of James Horner’s dynamic score for The Rocketeer (including over 20 minutes of music not previously released), Intrada was given access to the complete scoring sessions captured on Sony PCM 3348 format 48-channel digital tape and mixed by Shawn Murphy to digital two-track stereo. We feature the entire 82-minute film soundtrack on CD 1 and the first part of CD 2. Following that, we present the original 1991 CD with its remixed album versions and various differences. After creating their film mixes, Horner and Murphy created several special album remixes. The remixes often spotlighted instrumental colors in ways that were different from the film versions, depending on what Horner was most interested in focusing on between the two mediums. In addition, knowing an album was planned, he composed and recorded a fully developed version of the love theme specifically for the CD, slated simply as “Love Theme” in the sessions and titled “Jenny” on the album.

The film stars Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Timothy Dalton, Terry O'Quinn, Alan Arkin and Paul Sorvino. Cliff Secord (Campbell) is an All-American pilot whose life-changing discovery of a jetpack turns him into the crime-fighting Rocketeer.

Ordered along with 7 other CD titles. I haven't been collecting in over 3 years so I kind of have catching up to do. Love the cover art options. Can't wait to hear the discs. To be honest I've never seen the movie, but I'm excited for this score.

What kept you so long? And such a Brilliant release, Intrada. Thank you.

While I think this as complete as it gets, I wonder why Horner said in an interview that the whole score was nearly 100 minutes? Unless he was referring to the album mixes as well. The original cd is a perfect album and Im glad thats it back in the set as a bonus.

What a treat. This is one of my favourite audio demo cds. Cant wait to hear all the new music ! :-)

He was probably rounding.

I certainly echo the thanks repeated by many here.

This is one of the most fun Horner scores, and I'm glad to see it released.

Ordered without hesitation. :)

What a fitting tribute to the late great Mr Horner.

An instant purchase & a huge thanks to Intrada once again for bringing us this wonderful music.
Hope we get to hear more expanded Horner from you guys, but cannot wait to hear this score in full.

I can hardly express how big my grin is today.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this happen.

Ok, I'm going to be "that" guy. What's with that tiny number 2 on the left-hand side of the alternate cover? A little label that should've been removed? Mostly just curious.

Thanks,
Mark

To be fair, those who actually watched the video interview being referenced would recall what Horner said, which was NOT that he "wrote 100 minutes of music", but that there was around 100 minutes of music in the film, because it's just the kind of film it is. That easily could mean all music, score and songs combined. The total of what the film required not just of his own score.

That makes sense. Keep in mind we had the complete recording sessions, so you got everything.

Fantastic release!

I hope it doesn't sell out too soon. Here in the UK, $30 is equivalent to the cost of a family car now, so we have to save for a while. :(

Immediately ordered this, which should be a great release!

One minor comment about the description in the first message of the thread. It lists it as a "Hollywood Pictures release", but The Rocketeer was actually a Disney-branded film that went out under the Walt Disney Pictures label. For some reason, the original soundtrack release was on Hollywood Records instead of Walt Disney Records, so maybe that is the reason for the confusion.
