BSX Records presents THE ANGEL TRILOGY, featuring music composed by Craig Safan, Christopher Young and Eric Allaman for the three ANGEL feature films released during the 1980s. THE ANGEL TRILOGY collects the music together on one CD, including the premiere release of Berlin Game’s score for ANGEL III: THE FINAL CHAPTER.

Released in 1984, ANGEL was written and directed by Robert Vincent O’Neill and starred young actress Donna Wilkes (DAYS OF OUR LIVES, JAWS 2, SCHIZOID) as 15 year old Molly Stewart, top of her class in high school who takes to the streets of Hollywood at night, working as a prostitute named Angel. Unbeknownst to her friends or teachers, she’s been abandoned by her parents and is able to keep up the rent on her apartment with her moonlighting while she ducks Social Services and maintains the illusion that her parents are still around. Molly eventually attracts the attention of a serial killer with a compulsion to dismember hookers and the sympathy of detective Lt. Andrews, who is investigating the murders in which Molly has now become both a witness and potential target. With his support, Molly manages to avoid becoming a statistic and finds the courage to emerge from the street life she has assumed was her only option. The premise of the film and the tagline on the poster helped make ANGEL a big hit at the box office and it was inevitable that there would be sequels, which quickly followed over the next nine years.

The soundtrack to ANGEL was composed by Craig Safan, who was then scoring a number of low- to moderately-budgeted thrillers. Safan was given a week to compose the score, as he learned that he was replacing someone else’s score. The theme for ANGEL is performed by a small orchestra favoring flute and strings, enhanced by a soft synth sound that resonates in a kind of glass harmonica fashion. This is the sublime music that represents Molly the schoolgirl. In contrast, the straight-ahead urban groove of Hollywood Boulevard reflects Angel’s outward, street-walker persona that she adopts to make ends meet on her own. These two elements offset each other throughout the score. ANGEL also included a great deal of source music, including the signature song, “Something Sweet”. THE ANGEL TRILOGY includes a new version of this song, arranged and produced by synthesist Dominik Hauser, who carefully transcribed the music to replicate a new recording of the song.
