The Courier: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
|Original Motion Picture Soundtrack|
Original soundtrack for the movie The Courier, which starred Elvis' then wife Cait O'Riordan.
Elvis provides eight instrumental tracks under the name Declan MacManus - his first releases of this type, which led to other soundtracks, GBH and Jake's Progress, and later to his first full classical work Il Sogno.
The album also features tracks by U2, Hothouse Flowers, and other less well known artists.
