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 the expanded and remastered motion picture score to the 1997 Twentieth Century Fox feature film Alien: Resurrection, starring Sigourney Weaver, Winona Ryder and Ron Perlman, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. John Frizzell (Office Space, Legion, Whiteout) composes a thrilling symphony of pulse-pounding action music, featuring some of the finest cues ever composed for the legendary Alien franchise. Produced by Nick Redman, Michael Matessino, Didier C. Deutsch, and remastered by Mark Wilder and Naria Triana. This special expanded release features almost 75 minutes of previously unreleased material, including alternate takes. It also included is a remastered version of the original 1997 album presentation. The CD booklet features exclusive in-depth liner notes by Al Kaplan. This is a limited edition of 3,500 copies, so get them while they last.

Next up is the original score to the all-new feature-length 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment shocker Mirrors 2, starring Nick Stahl (Sin City, Terminator 3). Composer Frederik Wiedmann (The Hills Run Red, Return to House on Haunted Hill) launches the listener into a haunting musical soundscape, the perfect accompaniment to this much anticipated sequel to the hit horror/sci-fi film Mirrors. Produced by Frederik Wiedmann and MV Gerhard, and mastered by James Nelson, this presentation of music from Mirrors 2 is a spellbinding trip through twisted reflections of terror and suspense.

Here’s a new CD from La-La Land Records!

La-La Land Records presents the premiere CD release of composer John Scott’s (The Final Countdown, Shoot to Kill, North Dallas Forty) magnificent orchestral score to the 1984 Warner Bros. feature film Greystone: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, starring Christopher Lambert, Andie MacDowell, Ralph Richardson, Ian Holm and James Fox, directed by Hugh Hudson.  Scott’s brilliant score bursts with the violence and vitality of the jungle, yet is also heart-moving and surprisingly gentle.  This re-issue was produced by MV Gerhard and remastered by James Nelson from the original Warner Bros. ¼ inch album masters. While no elements were secured to give this wonderful score the expanded treatment it deserves, we were able to pull the Overture and End Credits off the original magnetic track and present it here as Bonus Material.  CD Booklet features in-depth liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond.  This release is limited to 3,000 copies, so order your copy now.

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

First up is a combo album which features not one, but two scores by acclaimed composer Mark Snow’s (The X-Files, Smallville, Ghost Whisperer) original scores to the Chris Carter television series The Lone Gunmen, (a spin-off of The X-Files), and Harsh Realm.  Aside from The Lone Gunmen‘s infectious main theme, the spin-off series allowed Snow to creatively explore a variety of styles and genres in dynamic fashion, while Harsh Realm offered him an opportunity to take his trademark atmospherics into new areas of techno-sophistication and profound emotion.  Produced by Mark Snow and MV Gerhard, and mastered by James Nelson, this collection of music from two Mark Snow & Chris Carter TV collaborations is limited to only 2,000 copies, so get them before there gone! It also features exclusive liner notes by Julie Kirgo.

Next up is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s composer Les Baxter’s (The Dunwich Horror, Panic in the Year Zero, The Raven, Hell’s Belles, Bikini Beach) original score to the 1965 beach party classic Beach Blanket Bingo, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, directed by William Asher. Mr. Baxter’s fun, and naturally far-out and groovy music serves as an outstanding example of the indelible sound he crafted for all of beach-themed musical comedies.  Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and James Nelson, and mastered by James Nelson, this release is limited to 1,200 copies and features in-depth, exclusive liner notes by Randall Larson.  Due to licensing rights issues, the music-only backing tracks of the film’s songs appear without vocals.  Given the condition of the master tapes, having been in storage for more than 45 years, the tracks on this release were painstakingly enhanced to the best quality possible.

Our friends over at La-La Land Records, have  just released another two scores, well three actually, which makes it an even better deal!

First up is a combo album which features the scores of not only one, but two classic Mike Judge movies, Office Space & Idiocracy.

Produced by MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson, this engaging duo of film scores showcases the composing talent involved in effectively scoring smart satire. Extensive liner notes by Daniel Schweiger feature comments from the composers and writer/director Mike Judge. This is a limited edition of 1,200 units, so get your flair on and pick one up today!
