DICK TRACY
Composed by DANNY ELFMAN
INTRADA Special Collection 363


For the 1990 Walt Disney feature Dick Tracy, composer Danny Elfman brought forth his rambunctious, bristling action music style, yet treating Dick Tracy with more romanticism —all while leaving room for numerous musical numbers and montages set to Stephen Sondheim songs (songs sold separately). In contrast to the brooding, looming Gothic theme for the prior year's Batman, Elfman wrote a no-nonsense, bustling march for Dick Tracy, bereft of sentimentality, which Elfman describes as a “crimestopper” melody that bursts forth in halting statements in the film’s main title and accompanies Tracy’s action throughout the film. The score features a surging, romantic theme for Tracy’s love, as well as nods to George Gershwin.

For his original 1990 soundtrack album, Elfman assembled 35 minutes of highlights, offering a carefully edited, musically rewarding experience. The fragmentary nature of the many short cues and the rapid pace at which they play under their respective scenes made the above presentation both practical and exciting. For this new 2-CD release, Intrada presents his original 1990 album intact as the first part of our program. To get a closer look into Danny Elfman’s music for Dick Tracy, Intrada was provided access to the complete original scoring session elements, recorded onto Mitsubishi 880 format 32-track digital tape, preserved in the Disney vaults in pristine condition. We commissioned Dennis Sands, the veteran engineer who helmed those original scoring sessions, to completely remix the entire score, allowing us the opportunity to add more than an hour of previously unreleased music, including unedited versions of the 1990 album selections plus a wealth of additional film cues, alternates and revisions, all appearing in crisp, state-of-the- art sound.

Well this is a nice surprise -- it looks like the album is pretty heavily edited from the actual score, meaning there's actually very little redundancy. Me likey.

I think this is first time in quite a long while that both releases from Intrada are a must buy for me.

"When do we eat ?" :mrgreen:
Count me in, I'm a big fan of the movie and the score !

But I'm curious to know why did you prefer to split the remixed complete score in two parts, when it would fit on a 68 min album ?

Fantastic release.

I just have one question. Does the booklet feature information as to how to put together a complete playlist with appropriate takes?

My question as well. Why not put the OST on one disc, and the complete score on the other? What is the point of splitting the complete score into two pieces when it is well under 80 minutes?

This is now the third release in recent history where this happened - also happened to Horner's The Rocketeer and Poledouris's Starship Troopers. I don't get it.


Regardless, I OF COURSE ordered this and CANNOT WAIT to receive it! Thank you so much Intrada, been hoping forever that a complete release of Dick Tracy would happen! Thanks again!!!

Purchased both DICK TRACY and THE BLUE LAGOON - thanks Intrada!

Do we know if the trailer music was comprised of alternates and unused material, or if someone other than Elfman composed it? It doesn't appear to be on the CD. Trailer link is below.

Listen to the sound clip "Boiler Go Boom" co-written by Shirley Walker. It sounds a lot like the Trailer was made up of pieces from this cue. If so, Yay!

The mistake on this album was to put the songs twice on disc one and two. The complete score (without songs) would have fit on disc one, while the songs had their place on disc two along the original 1991 album.

Well the film mixes of the songs are different than the album mixes, so absoLUTEly should have been included!

But, those film mixes of the songs could certainly have been moved to disc 2 after the OST presentation, therefore allowing Horner's complete glorious score to entirely fit on one disc. Oh well.

Ok this is a really small thing but I like crediting correctly where possible -- "Peach Juice II (Alternate)" is credited as co-composed with Walker, but is it JUST that cue? Or every "Peach Juice II" (I assume, given they are all similar)? Or Even "Peach Juice" as well?
