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), 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); the following year 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) 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):

    open/close all folders 
    John Barry 
  • The Black Hole - One of their titles co-branded with Disney, a huge improvement on Buena Vista's 1979 album. You get Barry's complete score.

  • The Deep - A 2-disc set with Barry's complete score on disc 1, and the soundtrack album Casablanca Records released in 1977 on disc 2.

  • Chinatown - This release expands on the ABC Records soundtrack album.note 
  • Congo - This expands on the Epic Soundtrax album but also has the tracklist on the packaging, instead of just on the disc itself...
  • Damnation Alley
  • Deep Rising - This expands on the Hollywood Records soundtrack album released with the movie in 1998.
  • Explorers - Varèse Sarabande reissued the 1985 MCA soundtrack album on CD; Intrada's release dispenses with the songs and greatly increases the score content.
  • First Blood - expanded. Later issued as a 2-CD set with the original 1982 soundtrack album and the full score.
  • The Ghost and the Darkness - This 2-CD set features his complete score, plus alternates and unused mixes, and the the Hollywood Records soundtrack album from 1996.
  • The Great Train Robbery - This 2-CD release has the complete score on CD 1, with the 1979 soundtrack album on CD 2. Quartet Records later released another 2-CD edition, this one having the score as heard in the movie.
  • Gladiator - not that one, a 1992 movie from which his score was thrown out.note 
  • Inchon - As befitting its status as a Cult Soundtrack. The label issued a 2-CD set with the 1982 soundtrack album on CD 1 and the complete score on CD 2.
  • Hoosiers - Expanded from the 1986 Polydor Records soundtrack album.
  • The Lonely Guy - Expanded Up to Eleven. The original soundtrack album from MCA Records was a mini-LP, it wasn't the only time a Goldsmith-scored movie got that treatment in 1984 clocking in at 18:26 with 7:12 of scorenote  The expansion has all the music he wrote for the movie. As well as the songs.
  • Morituri - Film Score Monthly released an album where Morituri shared space with some of David Shire's music for the 1977 Made-for-TV Movie Raid On Entebbe.
  • The Mummy (1999) - Yep, a massive expansion of the Decca Records soundtrack album.
  • 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.
  • Poltergeist II: The Other Side - The first release was just 29 minutes. Varèse Sarabande and Kritzerland also released expanded editions of this. Then Intrada released another expanded edition with 3 discs (Digital and Analogue mixes on the first 2 discs and alternate cues on disc 3).
  • Psycho II Expanded.
  • Rambo: First Blood Part II Expanded. Also includes the score in 35mm Three-Channel Mix and some rare tracks from the Carolco demo cassettes.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Basil Poledouris 

    Laurence Rosenthal 

    Alan Silvestri 
  • The Avengers - This physical release was slightly longer than the digital release.
  • Back to the Future - the original 2-disc release has his complete score on CD 1note  and examples of what the music was like in the initial stages and it sounds much Darker and Edgier.
  • Back to the Future Part II - This 2-CD expansion of the 1989 soundtrack album from MCA Records features the complete score and alternates.
  • Blown Away - The 550 Music/Epic Soundtrax album only had Silvestri's main title cue after songs from various artists.

  • Fandango
  • The Mummy Returns - a 2-CD expansion of the Decca Records soundtrack album.
  • Judge Dredd - 2-CD edition has all the music Silvestri recorded for the movie. The 550 Music/Epic Soundtrax album had 34:40 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 musicnote .
  • 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.
  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit - a three disc set, with the complete score, alternates, the 1988 soundtrack album remastered,and the scores for the Roger Rabbit shorts by Bruce Broughton(2) and James Horner (1).

  • Young Guns II He only had a short score cue on Jon Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory song albumnote  The cue "Guano City" called "Ride to Guano City" on the score album.

     John Williams 
  • How to Steal a Million/Bachelor Flat
  • Jaws and its sequels (see also the "Others" folder) as part of the original film’s 40th anniversary: This is a 2-CD release which features the complete soundtrack and the MCA Records album remastered, plus source music heard on the background.
  • 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 one CD.
  • SpaceCamp - The CD premiere (in the West) of the RCA soundtrack album.
  • The River - Like Monsignor this release has the soundtrack album issued (by MCA) alongside the movie, followed by the complete score (plus extras).
    Christopher Young 
Let's get this out of the way, it is not that one.
  • Avenging Angel as part of a compilation album with music from other movies that don't have TV Tropes pages, Def-Con 4, Torment and The Telephone.
  • Flowers in the Attic. (This was for the 1987 version that most V.C. Andrews fans aren't too happy with.)
  • Hush not this one, the 1998 one with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange.
  • Invaders From Mars The Tobe Hooper version for The Cannon Group - his mostly unused synthesizer score is paired with David Storrs' more conventional replacement, and Young's orchestral music.

  • Species
  • Virtuosity


    TV Soundtracks (Series) 
  • Amazing Stories (John Williams and others; three albums)
  • Battlestar Galactica (Stu Phillips; four albums)
  • Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (CD reissue of the MCA LP for the pilot, followed by two albums of episode scores)

  • Revenge (iZler before he changed his billing to Fil Eisler)
  • Stargate SG-1 A 2-CD set subtitled "Music From Selected Episodes" (Richard Band)
  • 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 (no 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 Steinernote , Christopher Young and others were brought in. This 3-CD set features their work on the series.
