5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movie soundtracks ever! September 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This re-issue of the soundtrack is the first that's widely available. There was a limited "not for resale" CD issue a few years back, but nothing like this. The quality is suburb, and there's several extra track not found on the original CD. The only thing that's missing is "Remo's Theme" by Tommy Shaw ("What If.") This is played over the end credits and while Remo is attempting his escape in the Ambulance. You'll only find that on a Tommy Shaw album or limited release 45 (vinyl record, not ammo.)

Played with authentic vintage Korean instruments, plus modern instruments and keyboards, this is one of Safan's best sound tracks to date. "Remo Floats" is my favorite, and probably #1 with most fans.

Extra Tracks:

The "Organ Music" is the music heard while Chiun is watching the Soaps.

"Elevator Encounter" that's heard while Remo is in, er, the elevator.

"Ferris Wheel Theme" is the odd-ball musid we hear while Remo is on the Wonder Wheen. Same for "Chiun's Ferris Wheel Theme."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD if you can find it! July 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Craig Safan was one of the top composers in the 1980's, and this is considered by many to be one of his best works. Many of the pieces are played on period Korean instruments, synths, strings or a combination of all. "Remo Floats" is probably the most popular.

One note: The end Song by Tommy Shaw "What If" is NOT on the soundtrack CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Score Collector gives it Up Thumbs! May 4, 2007
By G-ster
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have over 100 score soundtracks in my collection. I'm very happy to have found this title available.

If you like the Korean flavor of this title I would also recommend the "Rising Sun",score soundtrack by Toru Takemitsu.

Some of my favorite composers are Horner, Goldsmith, Kamen, Edelman, Elfman, and Poledouris; and I guess Williams too.

Safan was a new composer for me. The score soundtrack for "The Last Starfighter" is very simalar to Remo but, it is not as available. He also did the score for "Stand and Deliver" which I have not heard yet.

This movie had a song tie-in, entitled "What If", by Tommy Shaw one of the ex-front men of STYX. It is from his second solo album entitled the same.

This is not the best score soundtrack ever; However, it is very nice and I would recommend it to fellow patrions.

Great to find this unusual soundtrack. If your looking for something different than the usual, this is great. Composer has an unusual style that is captivating and makes listening very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remo Williams: The Music Score June 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins(1985) is an action-comedy based on the Destroyer novels written by Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir. The film came and went from movie theaters. However, the movie got high ratings on HBO and it did spawn a 1988 TV pilot for ABC television. Remo Williams(Fred Ward) is a New York police officer who is "killed" and forced to work for spies. A "Korean" martial artist named Chiun(Joel Grey)teaches Remo Sinanju(a "made up martial art"). The music score by Craig Safan is awesome. It mixes synthesizers, traditional Korean music, and a symphony orchestra. Craig Safan is just as talented as Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams and he gets almost no praise. Safan also wrote music for the Remo TV pilot. Safan wrote music for The Last Starfighter, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Stand and Deliver, and many comedies.
