batteries not included (2CD Original Soundtrack)
Expanded soundtrack for the 1987 Universal and Amblin film *batteries not included. Composer James Horner wrote 90 minutes of music for the film, about half of which appeared on the MCA album issued at the time of the film's release. Horner composed a portion of the score for big band, music reflecting the generation of the elderly folk living in the film's NY apartment building setting. The second facet of the score is the traditional symphonic fantasy style Horner had made his mark on during the '80s. At times the two styles intersect, as fantasy and reality interweave throughout the film. This release features Shawn Murphy's original two-track stereo mixes. The new album includes several substantial cues being heard for the first time, not only because they were omitted from the initial album but because they were also omitted from the film! And of course the album features music in the film not on the original release. Since two CDs were required to present the entire 90-minute score, there was enough room to include the original MCA program as a bonus.
