MIRACLE MILE - Original Soundtrack by Tangerine Dream

Dragon's Domain Records


Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the soundtrack release of MIRACLE MILE, featuring music composed by Tangerine Dream (SORCERER, THIEF, RISKY BUSINESS) for the 1989 thriller written and directed by Steve De Jarnatt  (CHERRY 2000), starring Anthony Edwards, Mare Winningham, Mykelti Williams, John Agar, Lou Hancock, Kelly Jo Minter, Kurt Fuller, Denise Crosby, Robert DoQui, O-Lan Jones, Claude Earl Jones, Earl Boen, Diane Delano, Brian Thompson, Jenette Goldstein and Raphael Sbarge. MIRACLE MILE is presented on two CDs, newly remastered, with previously unreleased music and exclusive liner notes.

MIRACLE MILE begins as a sweet love story between Harry (Edwards) and Julie (Winningham) and then suddenly takes a left turn when Harry answers a ringing payphone outside of his favorite coffee shop. The distraught voice on the other end of the line blurts out that he’s in a missile silo and the launch codes for the missiles have been entered. The bombs launching in retaliation from the other side will hit in about 70 minutes. When word gets out, gradually at first and then countrywide, panic sets in and Harry must seek a means to get out of town, but first he needs to find Julie. The film becomes a race against time to reunite the couple and find a way to reach safety before it’s too late.

MIRACLE MILE was originally released on compact disc in 1989 on Peter Baumann’s Private Music label nearly 30 years ago. Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring MIRACLE MILE back into the marketplace on 2 CDs, newly remastered by Digital Outland and including previously unreleased music. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of composer Paul Haslinger and writer/director Steve De Jarnatt. The original soundtrack cues on Disc 1 represent the score as delivered by Tangerine Dream to the director, essentially as heard in the film’s mix. These tracks have never been released commercially before. Disc 2 contains the original album version, which is distinctly different in tone and texture from the actual score as heard in the movie.
