The MP3 Teaser:
|1st Season episode 'BITE OF THE JACKAL' is where Sylvester Levay first composed this theme and was primarily for the epilogue scene with Phoebe Danner (played by a young SHANNEN DOHERTY) finally reuniting with her dad outside Hawke's cabin|
|2nd Season episode 'SINS OF THE PAST' provides the first two-thirds of this "Family Theme" medley with Dom in jail for the suspected murder of his ex-wife, Lylah and then reminiscing about his late daughter, Sally Ann's locket.|
One of the more emotive themes from both the Airwolf 1st Season episode "BITE OF THE JACKAL" and 2nd Season episode "SINS OF THE PAST" was one of Sylvester Levay's wonderful handful of 'character' themes from the Airwolf TV series.
The three-part medley starts with Caitlin visiting Dom in jail as he's being held on suspicion of murdering his ex-wife, Lylah. In an emotional scene with Dom's utter frustration and lament at being kept "in a cage" whilst totally innocent, is the soft Oboe-led theme underscoring the raw emotion of both people. Both Jeannie-Bruce and Ernie were crying their eyes out in this scene.
The second part is of Hawke & Dom's initial trip to San Remo island for Sally Ann's funeral, with Dom mourning both his daughter and a failure in his past whilst being fully aware they've still a mission to do for the Firm first and foremost after this bit of business on the side.
The third and final part is from the final epilogue scene in 'BITE OF THE JACKAL' with a full orchestra playing the 'Family Theme' as Phoebe reunites with her father after the Firm found him as a favour to Dom.
The next blog will be a full one for 'AIRWOLF II' (sorry, I've only got the link up on Facebook so far rather than doing a full blog for it).
