Big Trouble In Little China - John Carpenter

Indeed! It's Big Trouble In Little China, John Carpenter's cult-classic Asian-American-Adventure. No fan of '80s classics collection is complete without the synth-rock rythms of Carpenter's (with associate Alan Howarth) driving "Porkchop Express", or the power-chords in "The Great Arcade". Carpenter dips his American cheese deep into the dimsum, mixing his rock idiom with plenty of Asian flair.

Also included on the disc as bonuses: Alan Howarth's Backstabbed and a single cue -- the deleted "Atlanta Bank Robbery" -- from Carpenter's Escape From New York.

Originally issued on CD by Demon Records in 1987, this re-issue from Super Tracks was released as a promotional disc (surely to skirt proper licensing fees) in 1999, with about 1:30 additional minutes of Big Trouble score.

"Son of a bitch must pay!" But not you!

    I don't want to sound ungrateful, since I'm crazy about your blog and I'm a fan of this score, but the "Pork Chop Express" track isn't what it says it is; I used to have the score on vinyl so I know how it *should* sound, and this is a weird mishmash of other cues with only a brief snippet of "PCE". I wonder if the problem is with this upload or my download?

    gspeedlace -- I ripped this directly from the CD. Not sure why PCE is not right. I've also learned that the add'tl material is a scant 1:30 and not the 5:00 in my post.

    Most of the tracks skip (as though the CD is scratched). gspeedlace is correct, the PCE score is mostly missing because the CD is skipping. Is it possible to repost this CD?  

  6. # Blogger Soundtrack Sharity

    You are right. Just checked the archive! I don't hear those skips when playing the CD. I'll redo the files and repost. Thank you for the heads up!

    Here's the new BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA archive... Apparently Rapidshare's servers are stuffed, so this file is hosted on Megaupload.

    Hey SS I am very grateful for this release. I first saw this film in the theatres as a double feature to "Club Paradise" well they saved the best for last and I simply loved this movie and still do today... Wish they would do a sequel ...
