Basil Poledouris: Cemetery (Film version) [1978]
Basil Poledouris: Matt Surfs, Kaliponi Slack Key, Bear's Shack [1978]
Basil Poledouris: Summerset [1978]

I looked into Basil Poledouris' work after reading his obit last November. If you are a fan of big 1980's movies you've probably already heard his music. Big Wednesday is not a movie I had heard of, but it appears to be a surfing movie, and the titles of the songs on the soundtrack basically reveal the plot and story twists.

I enjoy the soothing numbers off this soundtrack when they play randomly on my mp3 player.

Buy the soundtrack here.

That sux about the Morrissey show. "Summerset" is my new favorite Britishism. The only other place I've heard it is in Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite.

Nice tune as well. Short and sweet.

This is a good film guys, you need to see it. Of it's time, sure - but quite affecting too. And lovely music, as you know.
