When the film was released in 1980 it was completely panned by audiences and critics alike, it’s redeeming feature was the majestic and incredibly on-point score composed by John Barry. The master tapes were subsequently lost by the studio but long time collaborator Nic Raine re-recorded it to near perfection with the The City of Prague Philharmonic for Silva Screen.

Raise The Titanic seems to be the perfect example of what happened to John Barry throughout the 1980's. Barry would create a magnificent score full of lush themes that would be amongst the best of his career. Yet, that score would be for a film that would end up being a box-office flop. You will find that every piece of music on this soundtrack to be melodic and in some cases, haunting, as in "All that's left" and "Memories of The Titanic", which are almost the same pieces but this is a must for anyone who enjoys rich, full orchestration.
