Released in:

The Soundtrack That Began It All
Luis M. Ramos (October 6, 2002)
More than a review, this is going to be kind of a personal note, and I hope I'm not going to bore you with this. "Airport 1975" was the score that began my collection back in 1975. What an interesting coincidence.
I went to see the movie at a movie theater in Caracas, Venezuela and, at the lobby, I couldn't put my eyes away from the poster. I fell in love with the image of a 747, crashed by Cessna plane that opened a hole at the upper right side of the cockpit, and the flight engineer being sucked out. I mean it, I fell in love with the poster that I wanted to have that image. I ended up buying the LP just in order to admire that poster.
But when I finally listened to it, I immediately was drawn by John Cacavas' propulsive and "airlifting" score. The main title -along with the pop version -is truly magnificent. 'Interlodium' offers what I consider the most touching moment of the score. Suspense is felt chillingly on 'Montage' and 'Alexander's Death'. 'Murdock Makes It' begins with a thrilling moment as Charlton Heston makes his way down to the 747, and when he comes through the hole, the music turns heroic making you feel exhilarated. Yet I don't want to forget the track called 'Suspense, Approach, And Landing' which gives you that great moment of suspense and action; that cue is so impressive that I hum it everytime the plane I'm flying on is going to land. Weird, isn't it?
Anyway, "Airport 1975" changed my life forever and made me a soundtrack collector, and I am grateful for that. The only thing I regret is that I don't have any more albums by the man who made this possible -apart from the poster, of course -: John Cacavas.
