Two new CDs from La-La Land Records are heading your way!

First up is acclaimed composer Bear McCreary’s (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Eureka) original orchestral score to the first season of the Warner Bros. television series Human Target, starring Mark Valley, Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley. McCreary’s robust, Emmy-Nominated score to this action-packed series featured an average of 60 live players per episode, making it the “largest group of musicians to play on a live-action television series in years,” according to Variety. Four of the tracks included on this deluxe 3 CD-SET are from the first season finale, which features an unprecedented 94 musicians. This limited edition set, produced by Bear McCreary and mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman Mastering, features a 3rd disc of bonus tracks with alternate cues and demos, exclusive only to this release. Human Target Executive Producer/Writer Jonathan E. Steinberg, Bear McCreary and actor Mark Valley contribute liner notes for the CD set’s amazing 20 page booklet. This is a limited edition of only 2,000 copies, so act fast these babies won’t last long!

Next up is composer Christopher Young’s (Love Happens, Drag Me To Hell, Spiderman 3, Hellraiser) original motion picture score to the 1988 Cannon Films period drama Haunted Summer, starring Philip Anglim, Laura Dern, Alice Krige and Eric Stoltz, directed by Ivan Passar. Mr. Young’s hauntingly beautiful score manages to be both contemporary to the time of the film’s release, yet strikingly effective in underscoring the film’s “summer of 1816” setting in which the film’s famous real-life characters (Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelly, Mary Shelly, John William Polidori and Claire Clairmont) gather for a summit of minds and passion, resulting in two literary works of note, Frankenstein and The Vampyre. Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and mastered by James Nelson, this special release includes both the original album soundtrack presentation as well as never-before-released film versions of cues as heard in the film. Film music writer Randall D. Larson takes you behind the scenes of the film and its score with his exclusive, in-depth liner notes. This is a limited edition of only 1,200 copies.
