Product Description


We don't know whether Fame will, like its iconic, Irene Cara-sung title song insists, "live forever." But director Alan Parker's vibrant, ambitious 1980 tale of New York's High School of the Performing Arts has been remarkably influential, spawning a TV series, stage musical, and helping cast the mold--for better or worse--for the decades of pop-song dominated soundtracks that followed in its wake. But the innocent, urgent charms of the original won't be denied, and this release marks the album's first digital remastering, an edition supplemented by three previously unreleased bonus tracks (the wistful ballad "Miles From Here," as well as instrumental versions of the title track and Top 20 Cara hit, "Out Here on My Own," that underscore composer Michael Gore's pop-disco inspirations). --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

Before Fame , film soundtracks weren't really thought of as potential commercial blockbusters-but this 1980 LP helped change that, fueled by the Top 20 hits Out Here on My Own and the title smash. Now, more than 20 years later, the original platinum-plus soundtrack has been remastered for the first time. The sound is amazing and it comes with three bonus tracks!

3.0 out of 5 stars FAME Nov. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
There are really only a couple tracks I listen to, BUT They really get me. They affect me... I HAVE to sing out LOUD and dance around... I feel ready to conquer the world...
THe movie was outstanding and the soundtrack is really as good as they come. Worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect soundtrack June 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
A lot of what passes for music from movies (even musicals) is simply dreadful. One hit song written by Diane Warren and some obligatory love theme instrumental thrown in for good measure and the marketing team goes nuts pushing it down out throats. Not here! Please see my review below as this one double posted and I don't want to bore you twice. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Now THIS is the album I remember!! May 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
I previously wrote a review for this CD last September, complaining that it was badly in need of remastering. I was thrilled to find out just a few days ago, that this has finally been done, and am very happy to report that the new version is a huge improvement over the original CD release; THIS is the album I loved back in high school! The depth and range of all the instruments are back where they should be, and all the nuances that were missing from the earlier Polydor release can finally be heard again. The finale, "I Sing the Body Electric", practically leaps from the speakers now. Many thanks to Rhino Records for finally getting it right. As a footnote; the bonus tracks are nice to have but only one is of any real distinction. The vocal track by Paul McCrane, "Miles From Here", is a lovely song and makes you wonder where it would have turned up in the movie, had the producers chose to use it. The remaining two, however, (instrumental versions of "Out Here on My Own" and "Fame"), are little more than duplicates of the originals with Irene Cara's vocals deleted. Call it "karaoke".
