For years this was one album from Morricone I had to have as an avid movie soundtrack collector! Luckily, I obtained my cd copy from eBay a year ago for a price extremely lower than what some sellers are trying to pawn it off for (can you say price gouging)!...It's only hard to find(out of print) because neither sales for either the film or soundtrack were "astounding". The only minor fault with the soundtrack is the repetitive main/central Frantic theme song for the opening and ending credits that plays throughout the cd in subtle variations.

However, while this Roman Polanski/Harrison Ford thriller flick came and went, back in 1987, the music itself from the film is something to behold.The Frantic soundtrack is exactly what it is;a dramatic soundtrack that captures the film's most tense moments as well as an atmosphere of suspense and mystery. There's only one slow and mellow jazz-like vocal track sung by Simply Red but the rest is all Ennio Morricone's artistry.My only quip is that it should have also contained other tracks featured in the film by artists such as Grace Jones and David Sanborn and a few others.Most of the soundtrack is built around the main Frantic theme complete with sweeping orchestral strings/violins/flugel horn as major musical components and classical musings with an electric bass guitar. The guitar should sound out of place but doesn't and only makes for a memorable movie theme. It's really the whole album's trademark sound.It's the guitar work that gives Frantic it's contemporary/modern edge.Where any other artist or composer would have botched the marriage of an electric bass guitar with an orchestral ensemble, Morricone's guitarist makes it all work flawlessly!

Much of the Morricone's composed music didn't appear in the film at all, and other selections were significantly altered.

The new 2012 release has a newly remastering of the original Elektra album, followed by Morricone's complete score as it appears in the film (except for the film version of one cue and an alternate take of another), mastered from three- and four-track 35mm dubbing units (the only available sources), and edited to reflect Polanski's use of the score in the finished film.

You can get the link for the limited edition of 1500 copies in the Comments section below this review. It's only twenty bucks, so don't waste big bucks on this 20-year-old, obsolete CD.

UPDATE: The remaster is now available on Amazon here. Screen Archives is also listing it here on Amazon, albeit for a couple of bucks higher than they sell it direct on their site, probably due to the fees Amazon charges Sellers.

. Ennio Morricone's beautiful & romantic soundtrack of Frantic is his best work. The music set the mood & was key in the films allure.

This is a hard to find cd. I didn't get it when it first came out because i didn't have a cd player at the time. And when i did get a player, the cd was sold out and out of print. On some sites it was offered for over 70 bucks and i was hoping to download maybe an mp3 version of this album at least. I'm happy it finally came out again. I especially like Simply Red which is the only song on the soundtrack. I downloaded Tigermoon's Something Tells Me and Grace Jones' I've Seen That Face Before separately since i liked those songs from the movie as well.
