Kind of wierd to just release the soundtrack this much out of the blue, and this long after the movie came out.
Not at all.
1) This is a Varese CLUB release, which have many such limited edition soundtracks.
2) For whatever reason, Arista (?) rereleased the song soundtrack recently (or will very soon)
3) I'm guesing there was or will be a DVD release around this time, as that often is why older soundtracks/scores are released when they are.
Not to mention the fact that fans have been waiting for such a release for a long time, since only two tracks of Bernstein's score were on the original soundtrack. I hope that more unreleased classic 80's film scores and soundtracks are resurrected from the vaults as well, such as Back To The Future, Gremlins, The Goonies, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, etc..
Hey, Percepto Records just released the incredibly awesome soundtrack to the ultimate big-top kult klassic 'Killer Klowns From Outer Space' from 1988, so anything's possible. Keep 'em coming, I say!
