ECHOS FROM THE PAST Theme MP3 Teaser

(9 March 2013) - updated 4th March 2014

"ECHOS FROM THE PAST" - Final Cabin Theme scene
from the Airwolf Extended Themes soundtrack 2CD
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some Airwolf fans have labelled this the 'Holy Grail track with no name' from Airwolf's 1st Season episode 'ECHOS FROM THE PAST', which is the final orchestral theme playing in the cabin when Hawke returns home after "dumping his helicopter out the back of a cargo plane".

updated FINAL Teaser (4th  March, 2014):

Airwolf 1st Season episode ECHOS FROM THE PAST with the late MICHELLE NICASTRO,, ERNEST BORGNINE and ALEX CORD
"He dumped his helicopter out the back of a cargo plane!' - the late MICHELLE NICASTRO as 'Nurse Susan' explains to Archangel (played by ALEX CORD) how she really didn't see where they landed (and keep Airwolf hidden securely).
Airwolf ECHOS FROM THE PAST 1st Season episode with JAN-MICHAEL VINCENT, DEBORAH PRATT and ALEX CORD at Hawke's Cabin
"You don't have a home of your own? Of COURSE we do! And offices in a half dozen locations." Archangel (played by ALEX CORD) and Marella (played by DEBORAH PRATT) start Hawke's debrief after letting themselves in, and then realise that Hawke & Dom have had Nurse Susan with them the entire time and worry about the security of her knowledge of the top-secret helicopter.
I personally think that this is the best "tag ending" of any of the episodes of the Airwolf series' entire run with a quick epilogue of how Hawke got home and the debriefing that Archangel and Marella thought they were going to get at the cabin, but instead had a tired, cranky and weary Hawke just wanting to unwind, enjoy a brandy and get to bed.

So the intrusion of the CIA agents leaves a sour taste in his throat at the start of scene. This quickly progresses into Archangel's shock that an outside person accompanied them on the mission and the subsequent wind-up of Archangel quizzing them all on whether Susan knows where their top-secret asset is kept (for the sake of National Security of course). But Hawke and Dom don't miss the opportunity to wind him up, which Susan then gets in on the joke by denying all knowledge... "Sorta!"

"So she knows where Airwolf is hidden? Is THAT what you call his helicopter? Uh, we didn't tell her the name... we thought we'd keep that FROM her!" - the wind-up is played from all sides on Archangel.






So, the reason fans thought the accompanying orchestral background music theme for this scene was the Holy Grail was that they didn't know if it was an existing classical piece or whether Sylvester Levay created it.

As far as I'm aware (I've still to confirm this with Sly as when I asked him in Munich last month he couldn't remember but would check) it's completely Sylvester's creation as it is actually heard in the background of a previous Levay work, a 1984 TV Movie called 'TIME BOMB'.

He laughed when I reminded him the track was in that production too from the same year and he immediately replied with "yeah, it probably saved me time!"  :)

So one more to go...

'THE HORN OF PLENTY' suite's mix will be the last full mix I'll be working on and then a tweak to ;KINGDOM COME to finish the entire album. Then the souvenir cover booklet's design and packaging and we're done.
