iTunes Editors' Notes

The late Epic Soundtracks was a drummer and pianist who began recording solo material in the early ‘80s after the demise of his band Swell Maps. But throughout the ‘80s he preferred to work with groups, like Jacobites (with his old bandmate Nikki Sudden), Crime & The City Solution, and others. Soundtracks returned to solo work (piano balladry, for the most part) in the early ‘90s and continued until his untimely death in 1997.

There are some previously unreleased gems here, like the heartbreaking “Unfaithful Arms” and “Teenage Heart.” In a word: necessary.
