Wild comic action-adventure soundtrack by Michael Kamen is available at last! Touchstone picture features Elisabeth Shue, Keith Coogan, Anthony Rapp, Maia Brewton with Chris Columbus directing. Frenzied story finds babysitter Shue over-matched and up to her eyeballs in danger throughout downtown Chicago, racing through streets, down alleys and up skyscrapers with killers in pursuit and heroics to spare. Disney's first PG-13 rated film inspires Michael Kamen to create aggressive action score, pepper it with comic touches. Fun ideas abound but intense action cues get the spotlight, many of them truncated in the film and appearing here complete for the first time. One such never-before-heard highlight, "The Rumble", gives new meaning to Leonard Bernstein's famed West Side Story gangfight music, replete with staccato rhythms and finger snaps! Also making its debut is Kamen's exciting, orchestral "Grand Finale" that ends the score. (Film instead concludes with songs.) Kamen's unused "Halloween" music adds still more variety. Lengthy "Tire Blows Out" that launches fierce chase music, extended "Rescue Sara" sequence are two more terrific highlights. Two piano source cues by Kamen appear as extras. Further treats: all-important "Babysitting Blues" performed by Albert Collins (with the cast in tow) for the key scene of the kids temporarily eluding their pursuers by interrupting a blues club performance, the all-time classic "Then He Kissed Me" by The Crystals that opens the movie plus two other key songs, "Twenty Five Miles" by Edwin Starr, "Just Can't Stop" by Percy Sledge. Kamen's entire score presented from original scoring session masters vaulted on 2" 24-track rolls by Disney. Classy package design by Joe Sikoryak, detailed liner notes by John Takis complete this generous 79-minute CD! Michael Kamen conducts.
