「スター・ファイター」、「レモ/第1の挑戦」のクレイグ・セイファンが音楽を担当したダイアン・レイン主演のスリラー映画「愛は危険な香り」のスコア盤が世界初リリース!当時歌曲とスコア5曲のみ収録したサントラアルバムがリリースされましたが、フルスコアがリリースされるのは今回が初めて。限定500枚。

ウィンドー・ドレッサーのカチア・ヤーノ(ダイアン・レイン)は、ピッツバーグで最大のデパート、ホーンズ社のウィンドーを1つまかされることになった。翌朝、エロティックで風変わりな彼女のディスプレイは、街行く人々の目を奪った。そんなカチアに熱い視線を送るジャック(マイケル・ウッズ)という男がいた。ホーンの向かいのビルでレントゲン技師をしているジャックは、度々カチアの後を尾行し、遂には不気味な電話さえするようになる。カチアの仕事が軌道に乗り始めた頃、彼女を取材にマック(コター・スミス)という雑誌記者が来た。取材が縁で親しくなったカチアとマックは恋におち、彼女の部屋で愛し合う。その時、カチアは部屋に忍び込んでいたジャックを発見するが逃げられ、彼女はノイローゼ状態に陥る。ジャックは、そんなカチアを鉄橋の下に呼び出す。カチアは怒りのたけをぶつけるが、ジャックは平気だ。そればかりか、必ず彼女を自分のものにしてみせると宣言するのだった。落胆するカチアだったが、ジャックが残していった1枚の写真から彼の正体を知り、反撃を決意する。翌日、彼の家からオフィスに電話をかける。彼女の挑発にのって卑猥な言葉を口走るジャック。それをジャックの妻も聞いていた。妻と子が去った家の周囲でジャックが見たものは、変質者と書かれた自分の写真だった。デパートで決着をつけようというカチアの呼び出しに応じ、閉店後のデパートに忍び込んだジャックは、暗闇の中で彼女を追いかける。危機一髪の窮地を逃れたカチアは、すきをついてジャックをウィンドーの中に閉じ込め、ドアのキーを完全にロックするのだった。

Dragon’s Domain Records will be releasing LADY BEWARE, featuring music composed by Craig Safan (THE LAST STARFIGHTER, SON OF THE MORNING STAR) for the 1987 thriller LADY BEWARE, directed by Karen Arthur, starring Diane Lane, Michael Woods, Cotter Smith, Tyra Ferrell and Edward Penn.

Released in 1987, LADY BEWARE features Diane Lane (A LITTLE ROMANCE, THE OUTSIDERS, STREETS OF FIRE, UNFAITHFUL) as Katya Yarno, a young woman who obtains a job as a window dresser in a chic Pittsburgh department store. Her provocative lingerie displays become known for their sensuous and kinky themes, attracting attention to the store, and giving Katya license for even more tantalizing exhibits. But among those showing interest in Katya’s interactive and alluring posing of the store mannequins is a psychopathic stalker named Jack Price (Woods), whose unyielding pursuit of Katya poses great danger to Katya, forcing her in the end to give Jack a taste of his own medicine.

LADY BEWARE was directed by Karen Arthur, a veteran director of primarily TV movies and series episodes and also a former actress during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. The film was shot during the summer of 1986 on location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which added a good deal of verisimilitude to the environment both within the department store and in the downtown cityscape and the many bridges that connect with the various neighborhoods across the rivers.

The 1980s were a busy period for Safan. He scored more than three dozen projects during the decade, ranging from feature films, television series, and made-for-TV movies. During the middle of this period, Safan began exploring scoring movies by combining orchestras with electronics. Safan’s score for LADY BEWARE combines synthesizers and sampled sounds mixed with a large string section to generate a compelling and cohesive score, which builds a good deal of suspense for Katya’s predicament, and then, after a turning point in the story, attends the retaliation she determinedly sets upon Jack. Safan was able to pull together a sizeable string orchestra of about 25 musicians, which equated to a dozen violins, four violas, four cellos, and two basses. Uncredited in the film, veteran scoring mixer Dan Wallin imbued Safan’s musical ensemble with its rich, sonic seasoning. Safan’s music does its job to elevate the tension of the story, enhance the sensitivity of the main character and evoke the inherent danger and apprehension.
Craig Safan has composed music for numerous feature films, television shows, theatrical musicals, and circuses. He is the winner of eight ASCAP Top Show Awards as well as an Emmy nominee. Craig is also a recepient of a Watson Foundation Fellowship and is a member of the Executive Music Committee at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Currently Craig divides his time between Los Angeles and New York City where he is developing several new musicals.

An early compact disc release for LADY BEWARE appeared in 1987, coinciding with the film’s release, including songs from the film and a small selection of score tracks, Dragon’s Domain Records now presents the world premiere soundtrack release of LADY BEWARE featuring the complete score composed by Craig Safan, and mastered by James Nelson of Digital Outland. The booklet contains liner notes written by noted author Randall D. Larson and includes comments from the composer.

LADY BEWARE is a limited edition release of 500 units.
