BUYSOUNDTRAX Records will be releasing RETURN TO EDEN, featuring music composed and conducted by Brian May (MAD MAX, THE ROAD WARRIOR, FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE) for the popular soap opera produced for Australian television during the mid-1980s, produced by Hal McElroy, directed by Kevin Dobson and Rod Hardy, written by Michael Laurence, starring Rebecca Gilling, James Smillie, Peta Toppano, James Reyne and Bill Kerr.

RETURN TO EDEN tells the story of Stephanie Harper, a young heiress who appears to have it all - beauty, riches and true love with her new husband, Greg. Or so she thinks. Behind her back, her best friend, Jilly is having an affair with Greg. While they are on their honeymoon, Greg pushes Stephanie into a river and watches as she is attacked by a crocodile and presumably killed. She miraculously survives and is saved by a stranger, the reclusive Dave Welles. Dave nurses her back to health but her face and body are too horribly scarred from the crocodile attack. Feeling sympathy for her, Dave gives her his cache of jewels taken from the local mines, so that Stephanie can use them to try and move on with her life. Stephanie sells the jewels and uses them to get to an island clinic where she can receive treatment for her face and body. In the clinic, she meets Dan Marshall, a brilliant plastic surgeon who uses his skills to transform her into a beautiful woman. Stephanie returns to Sydney and changes her name, becoming a supermodel and successful fashionista, which allows her to begin planning her revenge against Greg and Jilly.

RETURN TO EDEN began as a three part mini-series shown on Australia's Network Ten in 1983 and was meant to compete with other successful primetime soap operas of the day imported from America such as DYNASTY and DALLAS and was equally unapologetic in its extremes to entertain the audience. The mini-series was so successful on Australian television that a regular weekly series was developed and began airing in 1986. The events of the regular series took place seven years later, with Stephanie now married to Dan and living in the family home with her children. This album contains music composed and conducted by Brian May for both series.

Born in Adelaide in 1934, Brian May (no relation to Brian Harold May of Queen) was one of the first composers to achieve international acclaim as an Australian composer and was best known as the composer of MAD MAX and THE ROAD WARRIOR (MAD MAX II). May received his musical training as a pianist, violinist and conductor at the Adelaide Elder Conservatorium. He joined the Australia Broadcasting Company in 1957, where he formed the ABC Adelaide Big Band, an ensemble that performed all manner of light music for broadcast, and May became a leading figure in Australian light music as a result. He moved to Melbourne in 1970 to arrange and conduct the ABC's Melbourne Show band. Moving into film music in a period of time when Australia's film industry was just beginning to take its place among international film circles, May composed such notable film scores as RACE FOR THE YANKEE ZEPHYR, ROAD GAMES, CLOAK AND DAGGER, DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR, MISSING IN ACTION 2, SKY PIRATES, STEEL DAWN, DR. GIGGLES, FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHT MARE and BLINDSIDE. He won the Australian Film Institute Award for best original score with MAD MAX; many other awards followed, including the Golden Award from the Australian Performing Rights Association. He continued to score films until 1993, composing music for more than 30 films and many hours of television, most of which he orchestrated himself. Sadly, the composer passed away in 1997 at the age of 63.

BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents RETURN TO EDEN, featuring music composed and conducted by Brian May, performed by the Melbourne Studio Symphony Orchestra. RETURN TO EDEN is presented as a limited edition of 1000 units.
