Fresh Release: The Golden Seal

Intrada's 89th release in the Special Collections series features a unique collaboration between composers John Barry and Dana Kaproff. The Golden Seal's story can be guessed by looking at the CD cover to the right - yes, the story is about boyand his cute animal partner, but this particular picture is a lot more mature than the image would lead you to believe. There are some really intense scenes in The Golden Seal, so do not necessarily approach it as a family film moniker is a bit of a mis-nomer, but the music is wonderful and lends a magical edge to the story. Even the compulsory theme song which often feels tacked on to a production has a real heart and can bring tears to your eyes.

From the release's point, it's most welcome that Intrada managed to do a complete release as opposed to a simple LP re-issue.
