I have this film on Blu-ray (R2) as it is one of my favourites from my youth. Part of what makes this film so memorable for me is the soundtrack, which is serene and beautifully conjures the images of the films underwater themes and locations. For me it is one of the late John Barry's best scores and being a fan of the late Donna Summer, this was a no brainer.

Track info:

Track 1 - Return To The Sea 2033 AD. (24.00 m) This is an instrumental incorporating the incidental and background music used in the film to a very long but satisfying 24 minute length, including the beautiful music included in the first scene of the film.

Track 2 - Theme from The Deep (Down Deep Inside). (4.24m). The main song from the film as sung by the late Donna Summer. Great stuff.

Track 3 - Theme from The Deep (4.34m). The instrumental version of the Theme used as the B side to the Donna Summer A side of the UK single release in 1977.

Track 4 - Calypso Disco (7.29m) A Caribbean calypso dance track performed by Beckett. Enjoyable.

Track 5 - Theme from The Deep (Down Deep Inside) (A Love Song) (4.02m). Performed by Donna Summer, this is the slowed down, sultry version partially used in the hotel scene in the film. A must for Summer fans!

Bonus tracks

Track 6 - The White House Years. An instrumental b side performed by John Barry from his US single release of the instrumental Theme. I am not sure if this was used in the original soundtrack but it is good and seems to fit the rest of the cd well.

Track 7 - Theme from The Deep (Down Deep Inside) (12" Disco Version) (6.10m). This extended version of the Donna Summer single is much the same as the single version except for a repeated chorus, verse and instrumental break.

The CD booklet included is fourteen pages and very extensive in relation to Casablanca records and the Deep project as a whole with many photos of all concerned. A very informative read.

The sound quality is very good and yes there are basically four versions of one song and three other tracks but overall this is a very good release for collectors of fine film music and/or Donna Summer fans. Highly recommended.

great classic score by John Barry, although this is a repeat of the original album its well worth having as one of the bonus tracks track 6 is the main theme from Eleanor and Franklin called the white house years, this was only ever released as a 45rpm record in the USA on Casablanca records NB 887 in 1977, it has never been on CD until now, so if you already have the soundtrack from The Deep you should still get this album, the Eleanor and Franklin score has never been released, its a wonderful theme and is hear composed and conducted by John Barry, a must for all Barry fans.

I have the original blue vinyl LP and hedged on whether or not to buy a CD version. But this is an amazing presentation, well worth the upgrade. Donna Summer and John Barry = a good antidote for the winter doldrums. It's so clear it sounds almost like an SACD.

STUNNING attention to detail - worth the money for the packaging alone. As a hardcore Donna Summer fan, who I was honoured to meet in London in 2004, I just had to have this album. "Theme from The Deep (Down Deep Inside)" in ALL its versions is one of my all-time favourite Donna recordings which she co-wrote. Set the UK charts on fire way back in 1977. I reckon Donna is looking down with a big smile and is sprinkling a big handsful of her magic dust on everyone at BBR for this TOTALLY brilliant piece of work.

I just love this CD, this song seems to have slipped by many of Donna's greatest hits collections, don't understand why, but anyway, glad to have this in my collection.

I bought it to get the extended "The Deep" DS versión. Filled my expectations, but the rest of the album is a Little boring as I am not a fan of original musical soundtracks. The movie......I saw it bak in those days (1978) and it was fine as Jacqueline Bisset was very hot then (and still is), but now I bought the Blue Ray versión and....time has passed and the movie is something to skip. In any case Donna's vocals passed the test of time and still sounds great.
