Danny Elfman's Dolores Claiborne
20-Jan-2020 - Varèse Sarabande has released the 2-CD DeLuxe Edition of Dolores Claiborne, one of the most important and impressive film scores of Danny Elfman. Dolores Claiborne is an often overlooked and grossly under-appreciated score from the maestro. Not only does it depart from Elfman’s characteristic style both aurally and compositionally, but it also displays Elfman’s maturity as a filmmaker and storyteller using music to define, paint, and coax a psychological narrative. This 2 CD Deluxe Edition greatly expands the soundtrack from 9 to 31 tracks with new notes and extra photos! For more info and ordering, visit Varèse Sarabande.
Tom Holkenborg's Terminator: Dark Fate

Holkenborg's ability to capture the controlled chaos of the chase is masterful, as it manages to weave in a delicate homage to Brad Fiedel's original TERMINATOR score without disrupting his own sonic take on the franchise. Featuring a brand new illustration by Sara Deck, the soundtrack is pressed on 2x 180 Gram Black vinyl and housed in a wide-spine sleeve with two printed inner sleeves. For more info and ordering, visit Mondo.

23-Oct-2019 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the premiere vinyl release of the iconic score by Philippe Sarde (Ghost Story, Lord of the Flies, Pirates, César et Rosalie) for a Roman Polanski horror tale The Tenant. One of the most important aspects of The Tenant is that it was the first collaboration between Polanski and composer Philippe Sarde—who was only 28 years old when he composed the score.
