In the pivotal scene where Cho has flashbacks of his dead family causing him to break the seal on his sword, the film version of Walsh's score has synthesizer notes on each flash of a family member, but these are missing on both the original and enhanced versions of the OST by Varese. Anyone know if these were added in post-production? They greatly enhance the emotional weight of the scene and further emphasize Cho's quest for revenge.

Sounds like you just answered your own question. Probably added on later in editing.

Was just listening to this today and noticed that. Also, used the composer name and title in the search engine and got a myriad of selections but not direct links to this score which I love!

What selections Micki? I like your SN BTW. I do know (since I'm a huge fan of the Ninja trilogy) that there was some music from Enter The Ninja by W. Michael Lewis and Laurin Rinder tracked in parts of the film. Not a heck of a lot but a little bit which gave balance to Walsh's kick ass score. Ironically enough, parts of this score was tracked into Ninja 3 The Domination along with Enter The Ninja despite Udi Harpaz's pretty solid synth score.

I wish that the score to Enter The Ninja was released but I think Roger over at Intrada said that the tapes were lost or misplaced but that was years ago. So who knows at this point. At least we did get Revenge of the Ninja on CD finally. I have an autographed copy by Walsh, Director Sam Firstenberg and Steve Lambert aka. Silver Mask Ninja.

More than anything related to the Cannon Ninja, I wish they would release "Starting out right", a.k.a. "Baby take a look at me" as that is a sweet sweet funky-fine tune like Bill Withers "Lovely day". Especially the instrumental section is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.

You're welcome smile I think it might have been a sweetner added in post production. I mean for an LP to be just 27 Minutes (considering that it was a synthesizer score) back in 1983 is a bit curious and the only other Varese LP to be released a length close to this is The Formula by Bill Conti which was only 25 Minutes and later a Varese Club title. That one had to do with orchestra reuse possibly.

Also, Cannon Films was notorious for tracking music from other movies especially in their later years like Miles Davis' score to Street Smart found it's way to Number One With A Bullet that was scored by The Simpsons' Alf Clausen.

I was surprised that no additional music was added to the Varese CD and I honestly was expecting alot more instead of the remixes which were okay but the original score needed its full glory. Also, Varese released the soundtrack that same year to Young Warriors which curiously is still not on CD that Walsh also scored for Cannon.

take that synthcue directly from the movie and put it into the track (we did) so now it sounds like in the movie, also found som Enter the Ninja cues (without SFX) and incorporated it so we have a full score now. if the labels and studios says it is lost atleast I can listen to it how it intends to be listened to
