FIRST BORN is a really nice score. Typical sound of the period but with Small's sense of style and drama.
Yep, this is right on the money. And CHILD'S PLAY is fantastic, especially for '70s horror fans. Powerful, intensely disturbing passages juxtaposed against Small's lovely main theme (a parochial students' song). Very effective use of Latin chorus, years before Goldsmith made it fashionable with THE OMEN. I suspect a lot of people will be very pleasantly surprised once the samples hit!
Child's Play was a score I never expected to get released, although it certainly deserves it. Nice to know companies like Intrada are still willing to take a chance on a score from an obscure film from the 1970s by a composer not known for high-volume sales. And as another poster indicated, its use of choral elements predates The Omen by a few years.
