Warren Beatty's epic film "Reds," about an American journalist all-too caught up in the Russian revolution, came out back in 1981, but the soundtrack is now being released on CD for the first time. Razor & Tie Entertainment is releasing the disk (formerly a Columbia Records lp release), which features two pieces of music Stephen Sondheim composed for the film: "Goodbye For Now" and "Marriage Proposal." "Goodbye For Now," the main theme, both opens and closes the disk, with flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal guesting on the first version. "Marriage Proposal" is arranged by Jonathan Tunick.
Dave Grusin is credited with "additional music" on the soundtrack (in fact, he has sole credit on seven tracks). Other songs are either traditional or popular tunes from the era.
