RETURN TO THE BLUE LAGOON
Composed and Conducted by BASIL POLEDOURIS
INTRADA Special Collection 368


For the 1991 Columbia film Return to the Blue Lagoon, composer Basil Poledouris insisted that the new score not simply reprise the first, creating for himself the challenge of covering the same territory with new ideas. While the first film’s delicate love theme appears fleetingly, Poledouris establishes for the sequel its own main theme. Like the original Blue Lagoon theme, it features wide, soaring intervals, but its tone is comparatively moody and subdued, matched to the sequel’s melancholy opening. The new love theme, meanwhile, is sweet and guileless. The sweeping main theme from the 1980 film is used more frequently, but still with restraint -- sometimes altered melodically, or suggested through brief fragments. While the composer's palette remains mostly orchestral, synthesizer is incorporated into a number of cues and the score is a bit less Impressionistic than that of the first film, with a higher proportion of dissonance and robust adventure scoring. Ultimately, lyricism and lush atmosphere dominate, with the colors of solo winds and sweeping strings brought to the foreground.

Poledouris' score for Return to the Blue Lagoon has never been available, and for this premiere release, Intrada was provided access to the complete ½” three-channel scoring session masters as well as the live two-track session mixes on DAT.

Return to the Blue Lagoon picks up where the first film left off—revealing that while the original protagonists have died, their son lives. The boy is rescued and entrusted to Sarah Hargrave (Lisa Pelikan), who has a baby daughter, Lilli. When a cholera outbreak forces Sarah and the children to abandon ship, they wind up back at the blue lagoon. Sarah uses her missionary training to raise the children, then dies of a respiratory infection. The children grow into teens (Brian Krause and Milla Jovovich) and reenact the drama of the original film, falling in love and exploring their sexuality.

Nice to see this release come out so soon after The Blue Lagoon: Expanded disc.
Can't wait to overload my senses with more Poledouris.
Thanks again Intrada for another fine batch.
Looking foward to possibly more unreleased Basil in 2017 :wink:

Thanks for this one, Intrada. Glad to see it following so closely after The Blue Lagoon, which was ravishing.

Just out of curiosity, who has (is going to) listened more than once to the 'drumming' tracks.
Do you feel it's necessary to include those?

I haven't bought this yet and am very curious about the drumming stuff. Based on a couple of things I read it's "tribal drums" so I'm assuming it's bongos and stuff? And is it actually rhythmically varied or is it the same thing pretty much throughout?

THAT....is a big band! Did Poledouris really use in excess of 170 players here??? The session dates are grouped together, discounting, to me at least, pickups.

Really enjoying this & its original companion today, another hit for Intrada, good job!
