Editorial Reviews

Complete Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Wow! At last! Alan Silvestri's complete orchestral soundtrack for legendary Robert Zemeckis 1985 movie, released by Universal, produced by Steven Spielberg, starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd. Spectacular 2-CD set offers every cue Silvestri fashioned for landmark movie, presented from complete multi-track scoring session masters. CD 1 features now-iconic score used in movie. (Songs can be found on MCA label release.) But there's more! Many film fans know movie underwent changes in lead actor & serious tone of initial production. Find out now how Silvestri made changes as well! CD 2 presents early sessions featuring entire score Silvestri recorded before re-scoring with now-familiar one. Early version features darker, more serious tone in music than final version. Cool alternate scoring highlight: powerful trombone chords for initial version of Marty arriving in "Peabody Barn". Another powerful highlight: lengthy, intense action music for "George To The Rescue". Highlighting both discs, of course: early and final versions of complete "Clocktower" sequence, a genuine cinema-scoring milestone. Authoritative notes by Michael Matessino on background of production, scoring details, session dates plus great color stills complete package. Both early version and familiar "famous" version of score offer non-stop excitement! Alan Silvestri conducts. Note: While this is a limited release, we don't want anyone to miss out on this important album. For that reason, we are electing not to specify a quantity, but our Agreement allows us to exceed the usual 3000 limit. There should be more than enough to go around! - Douglas Fake, Intrada Producer

Collect this Intrada CD, to get the complete Alan Silvestri score, and collect the Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack MCA CD, to get the songs.

It brought back great memories of the movie, which we all loved.

For as long as I have been listening to film music, I have longed to own the complete version of Alan Silvestri's first Back to the Future score. The original MCA release was woefully inadequate at only 11 minutes of score. For years, we put up with the horrible MCA release, watered down sequel scores (especially part II), a tinny-as-hell bootleg from "DeLorean Records", and an atrocious piece of dog turd called "Back to the Future Trilogy" which contained terrible re-recordings of the score from BTTF. For years, I visited soundtrack websites often for nothing else except I hoped BTTF would be released and I didn't want to miss it. Then: a miracle. On 11/23/09, Intrada Records came out with the holy grail of Silvestri scores, BTTF.

It totally blows all that other junk out of the water. Throw out the bootleg, the MCA CD, and the re-recording. All the music you could ever want from this movie is on the release, in astounding sound quality. Finally, a legit BTTF, properly sequenced, gorgeously produced album for all of us BTTF fans to treasure forever. Now I can hear the complete clocktower the way it was meant to be. Now I can hear the real version of Lone Pine Mall 85. Even the music for the kiss, the ending part only which was on the bootleg, has been restored to its full version. The alternate scoring sessions are also enjoyable to listen to, but it's easy to see why Silvestri changed it: his final version is way more exciting, percussive, and features the main theme more prominently.

This is my ultimate dream come true. Thank you Intrada for giving us Alan Silvestri's masterpiece!

Well, It's about time, but it was well worth the wait for this Awesome score to be released. It even outdoes the 3-CD release of the Blade Runner Trilogy, when it comes to Completeness. If You have the opportunity to buy this, don't wait for too long, it WILL go Out-of-Print [OOP] and then You could end up shelling out major coin, either here or ebay. Usually, INTRADA has limits to it's pressings, ex; 3000. This release states "This is a Limited Release", so take heed, they really mean it!

If You own or are planning on the purchase of any of the bootlegs, STOP! This is the ONE and Only issue that is as complete as complete gets.

He who hesitates... You know the rest. : )

Happy Collecting!

Although 'Back to the Future' is not the best score (in my opinion) that Alan Silvestri has produced during his career, it is a very enjoyable piece of work, non the less. The main theme has become iconic over the years, so it was kind of silly that no complete (non-bootleg) soundtrack was available for so long. This Intrada CD set should make up for the long wait with 2 CD's and a nice booklet. The first CD provides the score as heard in the movie, while the second CD features earlier versions of the material heard on the first CD. Listen to both CD's and decide for yourself if Mr Silvestri made the right choices!

This Intrada CD version of Alan Silvestri's Back to the Future music score is superb. They did a good job restoring worn out, badly decomposing reel to reel tapes. This CD is "a little expensive", but it's worth every penny. There's also liner notes and still photos from the film. If you want songs from Back to the Future such as Power of Love and Back in Time, you should look for the 1990 soundtrack album. This CD has the "alternate scoring sessions". We get to hear some of Alan Silvestri's music cues as they were originally arranged. They sound "darker and more dramatic". A couple of these unused music cues can be heard on a 1998 Back to the Future CD conducted by John Debney and a Scottish Orchestra. Die hard Back to the Future fans have been waiting for this CD for more than two decades. The music scores for Back to the Future Parts II and III also deserve deluxe CD releases in the future. Alan Silvestri composed an epic, energetic, sweeping, multi-layered, classic music score for Back to the Future.

Collect this Intrada CD, to get the complete Alan Silvestri score, and collect the Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack MCA CD, to get the songs.

If you're really feeling ambitious, rip both CDs and burn yourself a custom 2-CD set that has ALL the tracks, songs and score, in film sequence!

Download the classic '50s hit "Mr. Sandman" by the Chordettes, the one song that was heard in the film that was not included in the Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack MCA CD, available for download here at Amazon, then insert it at its appropriate place in the soundtrack as heard in the film and to round out the songs collection.

If you collect soundtracks, then you know that one of the go to companies is Intrada. They really know how to package a collection together and give you all the stuff that you've been missing. I recently bit the bullet and bought this score because I've been wanting it for so long. Like so many others, the only CD I had from this film is the one that was released that contained only two tracks of Alan Silvestri's score. It is amazing to me that such great music was never given it's own CD...especially since this music has been used for so many other things. I've heard the theme in other Spielberg/Amblin efforts (previews-TV etc.). This collection contains everything you've been dreaming of. From the complete score, alternate takes, and other various cues. The disc comes with a booklet that contains some interesting facts and trivia about the movie/music and has a lot of pictures from the film too. Intrada always does a nice job at putting these together and they've done a real nice job with this one too. This is some of Silvestri's best stuff (this and Forrest Gump are my favorites of his). You can't go wrong with this wonderful score.
