We’ve got three new CDs from La-La Land Records heading your way!

First up is the next edition in La-La Land’s Expanded Archival Collection, lets all return to Gotham for this two disc remastered and expanded presentation of Danny Elfman’s magnificent score to the 1992 Warner Bros. motion picture blockbuster Batman Returns, starring Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito, and directed by Tim Burton. Composer Danny Elfman (Batman, Mars Attacks, Wanted, Alice in Wonderland) revisits his iconic theme and expertly weaves it into a sumptuous musical experience, bringing to life the film’s breathtaking action and rich emotional and psychological underpinnings. Produced by Neil S. Bulk, Dan Goldwasser and MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson from Shawn Murphy’s first generation three-track digital mixes, this limited edition release features more than 30 minutes of previously unreleased music, including alternate cues. The in-depth, exclusive liner notes are by John Takis and the art direction is by David C. Fein. This release is limited to only 3,500 copies, so get them while you can.

Next up is the world premiere release of acclaimed composer James Horner’s (Aliens, Glory, Titanic, Avatar) score to the 1995 Paramount Pictures feature film Jade, starring David Caruso, Linda Fiorentino and Chazz Palminteri, directed by William Friedkin. Previously unavailable in any format, this release of Horner’s erotically charged, Asian-tinged score finally takes its place in his soundtrack canon of notable 1990’s works. 1995 proved to be an especially successful year for Horner, having released scores to such films as Casper, Braveheart, Apollo 13, Jumanji and Balto. This release of Jade now fills the hole in one of his most important years as a composer! Produced for La-La Land Records by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino from ½ inch Paramount vault materials, this release contains bonus tracks that include Loreena McKennitt’s “The Mystic’s Dream” and the classical piece “Le Sacre du Printemps,” both of which are featured in the film’s score. Exclusive, in-depth liner notes by Daniel Schweiger feature comments from the film’s director, William Friedkin. Art direction is by Mark Banning.

Finally we have another premiere release from composer John Morris’ (Blazing Saddles, Clue, Young Frankenstein) sumptuous orchestral score to the 1986 Orion Pictures feature flim, Haunted Honeymoon, starring Gene Wilder, Gilda Radner and Dom DeLuise, and directed/co-written by Gene Wilder. Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and digitally edited and mastered by James Nelson, this release finally makes available one of John Morris’ most technically spectacular and evocative scores, that’s brilliantly performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Limited to 1,200 copies, this release features exclusive, in-depth liner notes are by film music writer Jeff Bond.

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

First up is Les Baxter’s (The Dunwich Horror, Panic In Year Zero, and Beach Blanket Bingo) original score to the 1970 AIP motion picture Hell’s Belles, starring Jeremy Slate, Adam Roarke, and Jocelyn Lane, and directed by Maury Dexter.  Baxter’s groovy, full-throttle rock score punches this fun biker flick into overdrive with uber-catchy riffs, fun vocals and late 60’s rock-era spills and chills.  Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and mastered by James Nelson, this special release presents the original LP presentation, remastered, along with more than 15 minutes of never-before-released film-version score tracks.  The CD Booklet features in-depth liner notes by film music writer Randall D. Larson. This release is limited to 1,200 copies, so order your copy now.

Next up is composer Miles Goodman’s (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Housesitter, and What About Bob?) original score to the 1996 Twentieth Century Fox family feature film Dunston Checks In, starring Jason Alexander, Faye Dunaway, Eric Lloyd and Rupert Everett, directed by Ken Kwapis. Mr. Goodman fashions a delightful, sophisticated orchestral score in the grand comic farce tradition, bursting with energy and themes, to buoy all the rambunctious fun of the lead simian’s adventures within a posh, five-star hotel.  Produced by Nick Redman and Michael Matessino, and mastered by Daniel Hersch at DigiPrep, this release is limited to 1,200 copies and features in-depth liner notes, including comments from the film’s director and others, like film music writer Daniel Schweiger.

Our good friends at La-La Land Records, have just released two new limited edition scores. The first of which is Speed 2: Cruise Control.

This is the premiere release of composer Mark Mancina’s powerhouse score to the 1997 Twentieth Century Fox feature film Speed 2: Cruise Control, starring Sandra Bullock, Jason Patric and Willem Dafoe, directed by Jan De Bont. Orchestra and electronics combine in spectacular Mancina fashion, resulting in a full-throttle score that skillfully revisits the composer’s classic Speed score, while also spinning off from it in exhilarating new directions. Produced by Nick Redman and Mike Matessino, and digitally edited and mastered by Mike Matessino and Neil S. Bulk, this dynamic album presentation includes a notable amount of music that wasn’t used in the film (due to the picture’s ever-changing edits right up to its release date). More than 70 minutes of pure adrenaline! Exclusive, in-depth liner notes by Daniel Schweiger, feature new comments from the composer. This is a limited edition of 3000 units, so act fast and buy your copy today!

Next up is the remastered and expanded release of composer Jerry Goldsmith’s powerful orchestral score to the 1997 Twentieth Century Fox feature film The Edge, starring Anthony Hopkins, Alec Baldwin and Bart The Bear, directed by Lee Tamahori. Considered by many to be one of Jerry Goldsmith’s last great scores, his music to The Edge is at once thrilling, thoughtful and breathtakingly beautiful. Managing to not only convey the film’s majestic backdrop, but also it’s complex struggles of Man vs. Beast, Man vs. Nature and Man vs. Man. Produced by Nick Redman, Mike Matessino, and Didier C. Deutsch, this expanded presentation of The Edge features more than 65 minutes of pure Goldsmith, including bonus tracks, and a CD booklet containing exclusive liner notes by Jeff Bond.
