AllMusic Review by

This single-disc soundtrack collection features two of legendary composer Elmer Bernstein’s late-'80s scores, both of which signaled a shift to smaller films from big-budget fare like Ghostbusters and Three Amigos. Of the two, My Left Foot, Jim Sheridan’s 1989 Academy Award-winning biopic of cerebral palsy-stricken Irish painter/writer Christy Brown, is the most well known and gets top billing, while 1988’s supernatural drama Da occupies the compilation’s latter half.
