Escape to Paradise (1984) Private Records Soundtrack Review by david j. moore

The cinematic soundtracks of ’80s European softcore erotica are an underrated and rare breed. So few of these soundtracks have been released, but when one is unearthed, they should be savored and cherished. Thanks to the Berlin-based label Private Records, we now can add Gerhard Heinz’s score to 1984’s Escape to Paradise to a slim library of scores that might include some of the soundtracks to the Emmanuelle pictures, or others of that ilk.

Over the course of 21 delectable tracks, composer Heinz dishes out some fun Calypso tunes, and playful (and quite sexy) instrumental cues with track titles like “Tropical Nights,” “Beach Dreams,” and “Limbo Strip Party,” among others. Listening to this soundtrack is almost as fun as watching the film itself (which hasn’t been available on video in the US yet). This soundtrack has its foundation firmly set in the early 1980’s with some electronic riffs and even a fun vocal track.

Private Records’ hot pink vinyl issue of this soundtrack comes with a poster insert, as well as (I’m serious) a vibrator that comes in a separate package. It’s a heck of a deal!
