Product Notes

Director John Landis really pulled off a master stroke when he landed Elmer Bernstein to score this 1986 comedy starring Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short; after all, Bernstein had composed the soundtrack for 'The Magnificent Seven', the very film that 'The Three Amigos' was parodying! But Bernstein plays it straight here, composing a straight-ahead, even occasionally heroic Western action score whose deadpan orchestration just highlights the physical antics of the "amigos" on screen. That's not the only attraction for soundtrack mavens, however; Randy Newman co-wrote the screenplay, and contributes some "singing cowboy" themes ('The Ballad of the Three Amigos'; 'My Little Buttercup', and 'Blue Shadow on the Trail' plus a cameo as "The Singing Bush" that, if you don't listen too close, would sound right at home in the B-movie westerns of the '30s and '40s! Little wonder, then, that this soundtrack ranks high on collector want lists...also includes the Bernstein compositions 'Main Title'; 'The Big Sneak'; 'Santa Poco'; 'Fiesta and Flamenco'; 'El Guapo'; 'The Return of the Amigos'; 'Amigos at the Mission'; 'Capture'; 'El Guapo's Birthday'; 'The Chase'; 'Amigos, Amigos, Amigos'; 'Farewell', and 'End Credits'.
