Topic: Music of The Specialist film

On TV they showed the film The Specialist-with Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone.

It has some lovely saxaphone theme music by John Barry.
I remember years ago it was on the Barry music compilation - Moviola 2.
I wonder if it's available still on CD?

The sax tune is called "Did You Call Me?" and should be readily findable on Barry comps on Amazon etc. There's a cover version or two around as well.

The whole score is fantastic! You can buy it on CD, and Amazon in the US has some used CDs for a reasonable price. If GoldenEye had a score like this I'd probably like the film a lot more. Barry proved he could still write a great Bond score in the 90s with this film.

It's a great tune, and always suggests a Philip Marlowe-style private eye to me.

I went in HMV shop and bought a 2 disc -John Barry Soundtracks CD.   Which has about 150 mins of various music.
MetroCD634 -a Union square production with music by City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Ian Rich Orchestra.MCPS.

The only singing voices are the choir for The Lion in Winter suite.  All the othere theme tunes are instrumental
with sometimes different ones. e.g.-a bassoon substituting for a flute.  Almost every variety of Barry film musicis covered.
Great stuff -there's about 8 minutes of The Specialist music.
