Randy Edelman does it again with this Bruce Lee movie. An all around great score with trademark Edelman sounds, his usual combination of orchestra and synths, with an eastern feel to it. There are 2 themes that occur in the score, along with other thematic material. The first is the main theme heard in "Dragon Theme/A Father's Nightmare", "The Premiere of the Big Boss", and "The Dragon's Heartbeat". It is a 5 note orchestral theme played with confidence and assurance. The other theme or the love theme and the far better one is heard in "Bruce and Linda", "Victory at Ed Parker's", "The Premiere of the Big Boss", and the best track "The Dragon's Heartbeat". This theme has been used in many TV ads for sporting events and figure skaters have skated to it successfully. Other thematic material occurs throughout such as in "Yip Man's Kwoon", "Sailing on the South China Sea", and "Brandon" (the only track that contains my name that i'm aware of), among others. The end of "Yip Man's Kwoon" and "Chopsaki" are 2 of those martial arts cues with sixteenth note xylophone rhythms and percussion. Overall, a great score that would make Bruce Lee proud and Edelman fans as well.

I bought this soundtrack because it contains the music that played during the first promos of NBC's American Dreams. The music also plays during the Harry Potter movie preview on the TV Guide channel. The music is recurrent throughout many tracks of the CD. It is absolutely excellent, relaxing, soft and smooth to listen to.

This is a wonderful soundtrack! I would love to find it in CASSETTE format for a gift for my friend's 65th birthday. Does anyone know where I might find one?

This soundtrack is hands down one of my favorites of all time. The theme that is echoed beginning in the track "Bruce and Linda" that reoccurs throughout the soundtrack until it's finale in "The Dragon's Heartbeat" was one of the most of used themes for a couple years after its release. The theme could be heard after the superbowl, and during previews of other movies such as The Truman Show. Edelman has a knack for using such memorable and captivating themes in several different ways. Although this can seem somewhat redundant at times, the theme is so captivating that the listener wants to hear it that much more. Edelman did the same with The Last Of the Mohicans. I definitely think this cd is worth the listen. I've owned it for two years now and still enjoy listening to it often.

It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that Randy Edelman's grand music for Dragon saved this film from becoming just another hokey TV bio-pic movie of the week. The approach the director had in mind with this score was to rise above stereotypes by not giving the characters of Bruce and Linda Lee an obviously oriental-sounding theme; the sweeping theme is about an American hero who rises from humble beginnings to become a world-class legend. The music has therefore been recycled numerous time in movie trailers throughout the 90s since it's not limited to this setting. Is it worth buying the album to hear this one theme? In short, yes. The Legend theme is introduced as a tender solo piano melody in "Bruce and Linda" and is recast in full symphonic/synthesizer treatment in "The Premier of The Big Boss" and "The Dragon's Heartbeat," but there is more to make this one worth owing. "The Challenge Fight Warm-up" is used in the Japanese "Ironchef" TV program which has attained cult status in the U.S. "Sailing on the South China Seas" uses a motif of the main theme in a sythesizer orchetral treatment. "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" introduces a new and subtle solo piano theme which passes along to the main theme. "First Date" is a jazzy nightclub piano number which shimmers with sythesized bell-like effects. Unfortunately the last track,"The Hong Kong Cha-Cha" is annoying even as it turns Hollywood's traditionally stereotypical treatment of all things Chinese on its head.
