Thanks to Intrada, We're Going BACK TO THE FUTURE (via Alan Silvestri and his score)!

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here with news regarding a major "holy grail" soundtrack release announced earlier today by Intrada. One of the truly great orchestral adventure scores of the 1980s, Alan Silvestri's BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985), is finally making its way to CD. BACK TO THE FUTURE has consistently ranked among the upper few titles on most soundtrack geeks holy grail list (including mine!). Intrada announced today that it will be releasing a 2-CD, complete score, edition of the score which is limited to an unspecified number of copies. Intrada does reveal that it is more than the usual 3000 units of most special edition releases.
Click HERE to visit Intrada's website for more info and audio clips. Whoa! This is heavy.

    by photoboy

    It's about time. ;) I was just thinking the other day that either BTTF, Predator or The Abyss are Silvestri's best work. AFAIK there's never been a full release of the Abyss soundtrack either, so hopefully that might get released one day.

    This Did Exist on Vinyl

    by kevinwillis.net

    I remember owning the Back to the Future Soundtrack. On vinyl or cassette. I'm just dreaming that, am I? Or has someone tampered with my timeline? Didn't realize it had never come out on CD.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 9:41 a.m. CST

    I'd settle for a remaster/expansion of the old soundtrack

    by Margot Tenenbaum

    The 'Back to the Future Overture' is one of the most concise & entertaining summations of a score ever and I'd love to have a remastered version of it. They could drop the Lindsey Buckingham & Clapton songs for a few more Silvestri cues.

    The "soundtrack" vs. the "score"

    by slone13

    <p>The BTTF "soundtrack" that was released on CD (and vinyl and cassette) was exactly that. A soundtrack. It had all the songs with lyrics that were heard in the film. i.e. Power of Love, Back in Time, Johnny B Goode, Earth Angel, etc. It also had two versions of Silvestri's "overture".</p> <p>I believe this new 2 disc release is the "score", which is all the symphony music Silvestri composed for the movie. </p>

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 10 a.m. CST

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 10:30 a.m. CST

    I have a serious question...

    by God's Brother

    Do people actually listen to movie soundtracks at home like they would any other kind of music? or is it a completist thing for most of you? I can't understand how anyone can get enjoyment out of listening to a movie score at their leisure (of course this excludes soundtracks that are just a compilation of songs or anything by Phillip Glass!!). To me, the visuals and the score are so inseperable that isolating one (the music) seems completely retarded and doesn't sond right at all... I bought a Danny Elfman collection once, and while I recognize that he's a musical genius, having the theme from Batman play on my stereo sounds 100% lame. Hearing it play on the DVD, however, gives me chills.

    Back to the Future IV????

    by mtoppi1975

    Are they ever going to make it? Michael J. Fox still looks so young. I definitely think he can play a 20 or even 25 year-old Marty McFly. And Christopher Lloyd is such a funny guy! I hope this movie gets made some day. I wonder what it will be about? I hope they go to the Civil War and to Woodstock. Maybe they can go see dinosaurs. Or into the distant future where religion doesn't exist and there is true peace on Earth. Yeah... This would be cool.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 10:37 a.m. CST

    God's Brother

    by Stale Elvis

    Honestly listen to nothing else other than soundtracks. Maybe some Beatles or Belle & Sebastian but mainly soundtracks. Listen to them while I work - not a great deal of them either - mainly stuff from my childhood. Keeping up with contemporary music has never been that important to me.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 10:38 a.m. CST

    When are they going to get the ball rolling on BttF4?

    by JettL93

    I reads the script that was floating around and it was brilliant. Micheal J fox was just a cameo (thats could easily be removed if he didn't want it) but i liked that Doc steped up into the main role. and not having marty in it worked because the story was docs story Zemekis seemed interested in it and he even went so far as to storyboard certian sequences...WTF ever happend to that project, the last anyone heard of it was 2005 or so, is it still in pre-production? Richard Jenkins was apparently cast as docs father, but he hasn't mentioned the project in months

    by DreadPirateRoberts

    To answer your question, yep, I listen to them. Mostly when driving, but sometimes at home too. You are right that the images can be inseparable in your mind, but the music is more important. You can listen to just the music, but the images alone lose a lot.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 11:03 a.m. CST

    Xiphos_2 - it's not my treatment

    by JettL93

    The script i read was from zemekis himself, but it was a first draft and obviously would need a rewrite if the film ever went into preproduction. I belive several issues were holding it back including Universal wanting a lower budget unless Micheal J fox was more involved, and zemekis wanting to do other project before hand. But i do know that a quick screen test was filmed in which Doc comes face to face with his father played by richard jenkins. Mary steenburgeon has also mentioned she probabaly wouldn't come back which would involve a significant rewrite of the first half to remove her from the story. It may happen someday but the odds are really against it

    God's Brother...

    by Admonisher

    I get zero enjoyment out of watching football, or building model trains, or listening to ska. But I adore listening to film music (when it's good) outside the context of the film, and have since I was a child. Not every score is equally enjoyable when listened to in this way (just like if you enjoy classical music, it doesn't mean you automatically like Phillip Glass, or Mahler's second symphony). But it's an art form like any other. I don't expect everyone to understand or get on board -- taste is taste. But for those of us who dig this kind of thing, this is majorly cool news.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, noon CST

    This is actually TWO complete versions of the score...

    by Admonisher

    As it says on Intrada's website, Silvestri's first version of the score was deemed too dark, tonally. This is the version of the score that appears on Disc 2. Most of the score was rewritten and rerecorded for the finished film, and this is what appears on Disc 1. There are NO songs on Intrada's release, undoubtedly because obtaining the rights would have been prohibitively expensive. At any rate, most people who want the songs probably already have the original soundtrack CD, which contained most of them.

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 12:06 p.m. CST

    loved BTTF'S EARTH ANGEL

    by Meadowe

    The way the song ends with Marty's parents dancing and seemlessly segues into the score always gets to me. I loved when they used it on family guy the exact same way during their bttf themed episode.

    God's Brother

    by bah

    Good music is good music. Not all movie music is good, but if it is, it's perfectly listenable without the images. Music from ballets are listened to all the time, yet they are essentially the same as movie soundtracks in the sense you're talking about (Rite of Spring, baby!). Or listen to music that was NOT written as a soundtrack. "Mars, the Bringer of War" from Holst's The Planets is the grandfather of every dark sci-fi movie theme since Alien and Terminator.

    G's Bro: yes, in fact I listen to movie scores most.

    by JasonPratt

    I'm sort-of doubtful I have any CDs at all that _aren't_ filmscores, or scores from games. Nothing comes to mind. (I don't much care for 'soundtracks', though, in the sense of the incidental pop music used throughout the film.) Scores are the modern equivalent of classical music, and (frankly) are sometimes vastly superior to even the classics. (I only have one Philip Glass score, though. {lol!} For "The Fog of War". Not one of my very favorites.) Incidentally, I have the scores (only on cassette tape unfortunately) for both Bttf2 and BttF3. I don't know of any music or even arrangements of Silvestri's on BttF1 that aren't recapped in those two scores, so honestly I couldn't care less about this re-release. (I really should hunt up CDs of the scores for the second two movies someday, though, and archive them on my Apple's iTunes.)

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 12:44 p.m. CST

    Sorry about the headline

    "I hate how they only give these scores limited releases"

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    That's usually the ONLY way the soundtrack labels can afford what they do. With VERY rare exceptions (Star Wars, Titanic, and...that's about it), movie score soundtracks simply do not sell to anyone other than a small, select group of consumers, and that's why most soundtracks are limited to 3,000 copies or less. Yeah, it sucks when you want a soundtrack that sells out before you can snag a copy, but thems the breaks.

    by Admonisher

    Debney's recording was incomplete and, as you observed, the quality failed to satisfy many. Silvestri's promo tape was also incomplete, definitely not up to modern audio standards, and (unless it came direct from the composer, as in your case) a bootleg. The music on Intrada's new release has been completely remastered for optimal clarity, contains not merely previously unreleased cues but an ENTIRE ALTERNATE SCORE, and beautiful packaging featuring detailed liners by film music authority Michael Matessino. The bottom line is that soundtrack fans have been lusting after a better presentation of this score for more than two decades, and this release exceeds all expectations. But then, as someone who once wrote to Silvestri for an autograph, you probably know most of this. :-)

    2015 - BTTF4

    by agentf1

    Regardless of Zemeckis' denial of BTTF4, I find it hard to believe that if the principals from the original trilogy are still alive and kicking around 2013 or so that they won't cash in on the 2015 date and make another movie.<p> They could do it one of a couple ways: make a "remake" with a kid from 2015 going back to 1985 (only connection is some time machine element courtesy of Doc Brown). This would be a fairly straight forward remake using the novelty of 2015 vs 1985 in the same way as 1985 was to 1955 in the first film. Another option would be more of a true sequel utilizing Marty's kids or Doc Brown's shenanigans over the last 30 years. It could get fairly creative, but I believe that with remake crazy Hollywood...the first scenario will almost certainly happen no matter what.

    Complete Score without the Earth Angel segue?

    by agentf1

    I don't think this is truly a legitimate complete score unless they would incorporate the Earth Angel - orchestral segue at least as a bonus track. That is definitely one of the best blending of soundtrack music and score ever.<p> I understand that they may not have rights to include Earth Angel, but it's very sad that this score comes to light and one of it's shining moments is missing. I'm guessing the score part is included but without the actual Earth Angel part, it's effectively neutered.<p> (I know there is an actual musical term for the Earth Angel-Score transition but I can't remember what it is)

    Spielberg films will come on Blu eventually

    by Proman1984

    He's just spacing them out for very obvious reasons. So worry not the library will be available and your nuts will be safe

  • Nov. 24, 2009, 11:12 p.m. CST

    Also why not just MASS RELEASE THIS SCORE?

    by Proman1984

    It is so brilliant and the main theme is among the greatest ever!

    "Why not mass release the score?" I'm sure Intrada would LOVE to! But it's all about the $$$$. The way these deals have to come together is insanely complex, and has to do with such factors as when and where the music was recorded. You just have to remember that the music/entertainment biz doesn't always operate according to ordinary rules of "logic." Anyway, the first pressing of 3,000 copies has already sold out. There will be a second pressing, but it won't be unlimited -- so anyone who's on the fence, order now!

    Part IV idea

    by bah

    Running with agentf1's idea -- a fourth chapter could start in the 2015 of the movie, but through time travel shenanigans, that future is changed to one we're more likely to know. Maybe the movie's 2015 is the result of many Doc Brown inventions, or maybe a rival inventor's inventions. For some reason or another, those creations have to be or are circumstantially prevented.

    I said it the other day, this is my favorite trilogy

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    I love them all. The first is the best film, setting up some classic characters with a fantastic story. <p> The second upped the ante with crazy FX, sweet technology and a frenetic pace to one of the best time travel clean-ups ever. The riffing on the first is inspired and the comedy is constant. <p> The third film goes against the usual trend of trilogy's and slooows things back down to a comfortable ride where characters once again take centre stage. The comedy in this one truly reaches classic proportions with many in-jokes and Mad Dog Tannen, possibly the greatest idiot villain in history. The only problem I have with the entire series is that Doc doesn't give Marty back his hoverboard...
