Go To

Intrada is a label which specialises in soundtrack albums for films and television series. Unlike other labels in this field (Varèse Sarabande, La La Land Records, Silva Screen Records), Intrada began as a retail store in 1984, located in San Francisco and run by Douglass Fake and Roger Feigelson and selling (you guessed it) soundtrack albums.

In 1985 the store licensed its first self-produced album, working with MGM to release Basil Poledouris' Red Dawn (1984); in 1986 Intrada made another deal with MGM to issue Jerry Goldsmith's Poltergeist II: The Other Side, the first of many albums they would do with the composer (in 1993, when the label discovered they had overpaid for the reuse fees, they were able to issue a considerably longer version of the album - Red Dawn was also expanded). The label has built a number of good relationships with composers like Goldsmith, Poledouris, Bruce Broughton and Bill Conti, in addition to working regularly with the major studios like 20th Century Fox (always one of the most soundtrack-friendly studios, even after the Disney buyout) and more impressively, given the studio has always known the commercial value of its music, Disney (Intrada released albums for several Disney films in the 1990s, like Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and A Far Off Place - in recent times Intrada has released soundtracks co-branded with Disney or its subsidiaries, starting with Up and including Toy Story 3, Oz the Great and Powerful, The Avengers, the first three movies in the Tinker Bell series and others).


The store moved to Oakland in 1999, and continues today (both the physical and online store sell albums from other labels); Douglass Fake also has the distinction of having scored a film himself, 1998's Holly Vs. Hollywood (directed by Intrada's Jeff Johnson). No prizes for guessing what company released the soundtrack.

Among their releases (the folders may not include every album the composer has on the label. Usually just the ones with TV Tropes articles):

As well as the songs.

  • The Mummy (1999) - A 2-CD set with the complete 90m 50s score plus the Decca Records soundtrack album presentation.
  • Night Crossing (later expanded)
  • A Patch of Blue - a vast improvement on the Mainstream soundtrack album issued in 1965, and on CD with - for reasons known only to Mainstream's Jackie Mills - (well, most of) Mark Lawrence's music from David and Lisa. This release has Goldsmith's score in proper form.
  • Patton - This 2-CD release has the complete score on CD 1; the 1970 soundtrack albumnote  from 20th Century-Fox Records and the soundtrack album version of the end title minus the dialogue on CD 2.

  • Powder - This expands on the 1995 soundtrack album that Hollywood Records put out.

  • Rambo III expanded. The Scotti Bros. soundtrack album had 22m 53s of his score, along with two Giorgio Moroder songs and two Bill Medley songs - Medley's Cover Version of "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" is the only song used in the movie (over the end credits). The full scorenote  is presented here, minus the songs.
  • The River Wild - pairing his complete score and Maurice Jarre's thrown-out score. One CD each.
  • The Sand Pebbles - Varèse Sarabande had first expansion dibs with a Deluxe Edition in 2002; Intrada's 2-CD release in 2011 was dubbed the Complete Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Both versions are considerably longer than the 1966 soundtrack album from 20th Century-Fox Records.
  • Seven Days in May (paired with Maurice Jarre's The Mackintosh Man, because it only runs 17 minutes)
  • The Shadow - This 2-CD release has Goldsmith's complete 90-minute score and a remastered version of the Arista Records soundtrack album from 1994.

  • Von Ryan's Express - paired with his music from The Detective
  • Warlock (later expanded)
  • The Wind and the Lion - This 2-CD release has the complete score on CD 1, with the 1975 soundtrack album on CD 2. This was their second pass on the title and much more comprehensive than the first release.

    James Horner 

    Michael Kamen 
  • Adventures in Babysitting - And yes, "Babysitting Blues" is on it.(This was released in 2015; there was no soundtrack album issued when the movie was released in 1987.)
  • Company Business - reissued as 2-CD set in 2021 with the 1991 Kamen-supervised album assembly that the label released initially on CD 1; CD 2 has the complete and chronological score.
  • Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - an expanded 2-CD set - that Bryan Adams song isn't included, neither is the Jeff Lynne song by the way. In 2020 the label issued a 4-CD set. Intrada's explanation: With the score proper filling two discs, the third disc includes a wealth of alternates. Included among the alternates is the Morgan Creek logo, which uses the Robin Hood theme for the logo attached to their movies from that point on. Finally, a fourth disc contains the entire program Kamen assembled for release on the first album (sans the vocal), as it contains many unique edits and assemblies making it a program worth preserving.
  • Renegades
  • Road House This did have a soundtrack album in 1989 on Arista Records, none of Kamen's score was on it. This was later expanded by La La Land Records.

    Henry Mancini 

    David Newman

  • The Avengers - This physical release was slightly longer than the digital release.

  • Fandango
  • The Mummy Returns - a 2-CD expansion of the Decca Records soundtrack album.
  • Judge Dredd - a 2-CD edition has all the music Silvestri recorded for the movie. The 550 Music/Epic Soundtrax album had 34m 40s of the music recorded in Londonnote  Silvestri had to rework some of the score in Hollywood; this 2-CD also has the original recording of Jerry Goldsmith's trailer music.note 
  • Judgment Night - None of Silvestri's score was on the Immortal/Epic Soundtrax soundtrack album, which has its own page on The Other Wiki.
  • Predator - A popular bootleg album, it became one of the quickest selling releases in their library upon release. Later reissued due to popular fan demand. It is widely considered an improvement on Varèse Sarabande's original release.

  • Jaws 2 - A 2-CD expansion of the MCA Records album.
  • Monsignor - the other Christopher Reeve movie Williams scored - also with the London Symphony Orchestra. Intrada first reissued the 1982 Casablanca album and paired the album with the complete film score. Both fit on one CD.

  • The River - Like Monsignor this release has the soundtrack album issued (by MCA) alongside the movie, followed by the complete score (plus extras).
  • War of the Worlds - a 2-CD set with the film score presented on CD 1, CD 2 has the remastered Decca Records soundtrack album and 15m of extras.

  • The Twilight Zone (1985) - Silva Screen released an album focusing on The Grateful Dead's work on this version. When it became apparent to CBS that perhaps letting showrunner Philip DeGuere hire musicians with no prior (or subsequent as it happened) scoring experience (i.e. the Dead) wasn't the best or most cost-efficient idea, the likes of Craig Safan, Basil Poledouris, Dennis McCarthy,Fred Steiner,note  Christopher Young and others were brought in. This 3-CD set features their work on the series.
