I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you're joking.

It's the scene on the yacht inside the restroom (i.e., natical term is "head").

It refers to the sequence early in the film where Ned goes to the toilet, LOL!
Seriously mate, if you're not joking, read the booklet or watch the film.

My copy arrived today, and words fail me.
It will have to suffice to say that this edition surpasses all expectations.

A true classic available in all it's glory at last!

Thank you once again Lukas and co.

Mike

I am indeed only joking - it's just some of the track titles crack me up.

"kill for pussy" used to be fav, but "head" is just so basic.

Great Film, Great Score, Great Composer. Great Label.

Apologies if this information is hiding somewhere. But I'm unclear on what the source for Disc One is. It sounds like it might be the "music only" track for the film. But the quality sounds not quite up to par with the Disc 2, mixed soundtrack album. Anyone know? Thanks...

The entire thing, with the exception of about 4 cues, came from the original multi-track, all re-mixed by Mike Matessino, based on Dan Wallin's original mixes.

Got mine yesterday and I'm trapped between the joy of immersing myself in this terrific release and the sorrow of realizing that the era for so many of the artists I cherish is over. At least with CDs like this still being produced, we can revisit the stuff we love again and again. Sending out such a warm thank you to Lukas and FSM. Hard to believe the era for your releases is almost over too. Well, I'm gonna quit the Eeoyre bit and just enjoy my Body Heat CD, with a Ben Hur, Charade, North By Northwest, Black Sunday and restored 1941 chaser. smile

Yes a SUPERB RELEASE...Got mine yesterday, instantly popped in to copy (to preserve the original) popped copy into CD on way to work and listen to what was the original strains of that 4-note repeated synth...I always knew it was the original that I wanted...can't put my finger on it but I like how it flows more than the re-record....it was a re-record right?

Poor Benny has to move aside for a bit...

The Stud Muffin stikes again!!

So, is Disc 2 from a different recording session? Why does the quality sound better? Is it just the mix?

Thanks...

And what's incredible to me is that even though I know about 4 cues were missing and had to be sourced by other means, it's not obvious to my ear that there are 4 cues from a different source. That's great mastering for you, I guess!

Neil, how did you get those missing cues?

Cheers

Guess: the source tape was a bit hissy. Seems like there's a decent amount of noise reduction on this.

Have been listening to Body Heat in my car for a few days now. Oh, my lord what a tremendously boring score. I am a Barry fanatic, having all his released music. But Body Heat has always been the one I never got around to enjoy. It`s almost a noir parody. Which the film is not! This one is shelved right next to The Golden Child, Jagged Edge and Night Games. Forgettable score, pastiche main title. Snore!

Cue debate!

Well, having played the CD to death non-stop for a few days (this, to me, is 'real' film music, not that droning stuff that pounds your ears for two hours and then you can't remember a single note of it), I decided to re-watch the film last night.

I'd forgotten just how much the making of documentary focussed on Barry and the music. I love it when William Hurt says the first thing that blew him away when he saw the finished film was the music.

Yes, it was perfect music for that film.

Cheers

Indeed it is a perfect little film, for me. And a perfect score to accompany it! I do wonder why Kasdan never used Barry again (or, alternatively, why Barry didn't want to score any more LK films).

That's an interesting question since both men were apparently enthusiastic about the other. At least about Body Heat, anyway.

The Big Chill was LK's next film as director and the soundtrack there was basically pop songs, wasn't it? I don't remember that there was a credited composer on it was there?

Cheers

Same here.

A great theme beaten to death.

It may have worked in the film but the cd should be one cue long.
That's about all I can take.
