Limited CD reissue of exciting David Newman soundtrack for Stephen Herek history-upside-down tale starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure consists of time travel both past and future, replete with history lessons come to life: Napoleon, the wild west with Billy The Kid, medieval England, Socrates, Joan Of Arc, Freud, Abraham Lincoln. Newman responds with vivid, action-packed score playing straight-man to antics on-screen. CD presents all of Newman’s scoring in stereo from once-missing actual 1/2″ three channel orchestral session elements plus DAT of all additional keyboard cues, guitars, additional fanfares, more. Highlights abound but rousing “Execute Them”, haunting “Meet The Princesses” deserve extra spotlight. The pop world was graced with all-song album from A&M label many years ago but score fans were left empty-handed. Finally in 2014, those fans got their due with Intrada premiere of Newman’s music! Now this album has been given a modest re-mastering and appears in very limited quantity to spotlight upcoming Bill & Ted Face The Music with popular duo of original actors. (Same musical contents as our 2014 edition.) Colorful design from Joe Sikoryak and Kay Marshall plus informative liner notes by Tim Greiving tie nice package up with a bow. David Newman conducts.
