2-CD Release of Tangerine Dream’s MIRACLE MILE Original Soundtrack Cues + Album Remix
Aug 3, 2017
MIRACLE MILE, Steve De Jarnatt’s 1988 pre-apocalyptic thriller, begins as a sweet love story between Harry and Julie and then suddenly takes a left turn when Harry answers a ringing payphone outside of his favorite coffee shop. The distraught voice on the other end of the line blurts out that he’s in a missile silo and the launch codes for the missiles have been entered. The bombs launched in retaliation from the other side will hit in about 70 minutes. When word gets out, gradually at first and then countrywide, panic sets in and Harry must seek a means to get out of town, but first he needs to find Julie. The film becomes a race against time to reunite the couple and find a way to reach safety before it’s too late.
MIRACLE MILE was originally released on compact disc in 1989 on Peter Baumann’s Private Music label nearly 30 years ago. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring MIRACLE MILE back into the marketplace on 2 CDs, newly remastered by Digital Outland and including previously unreleased music. The original soundtrack cues on Disc 1 represent the score as delivered by Tangerine Dream to the director, essentially as heard in the film’s mix; these tracks have never been released commercially before. Disc 2 contains the remixed album version, which is distinctly different in tone and texture from the actual score as heard in the movie.
The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of composer and former Tangerine Dream member (1985-1990) Paul Haslinger and writer/director Steve De Jarnatt.
