Tom Holkenborg's Terminator: Dark Fate
26-Dec-2019 - Mondo, and Paramount Pictures present Tom Holkenborg's kinetic, fist pumping score to Terminator: Dark Fate. Similar to MAD MAX FURY ROAD, another film featuring a brilliant Tom Holkenborg score (A.K.A. Junkie XL), TERMINATOR DARK FATE is a movie that starts with a bang and never let's up. 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.

Pedro Almodóvar & Alberto Iglesias Film Music Collection
18-Dec-2019 - Quartet Records and El Deseo present a mammoth 11-CD box Film Music Collection, that compiles revised and remastered editions of all the soundtracks from the films on which Pedro Almodóvar and Alberto Iglesias have worked together—a partnership that celebrates 25 years of uninterrupted collaboration this year. Since all the albums were virtually complete, this edition doesn’t includes extra music, although all the albums (many of them out-of-print for years) have been meticulously remastered. The box set includes 11 CDs in individual cardboard sleeves and a 60-page booklet.
Francesco de Masi's Il Segno Del Coyote
17-Dec-2019 - Beat Records has released Francesco de Masi's score for Il Segno Del Coyote. The movie was released in 1963 and directed by Mario Caiano. The music by Maestro de Masi represents the first Italian score for a Western movie, still without the trademarks that would define the genre from the following year. Instead, the music composed by the Maestro was a wink to the Hollywood productions of the day, written in his typical symphonic style. The score is now available integrally in their classic CDCR series featuring a lot of unreleased music, with mastering by Enrico De Gemini, graphic layout by Daniele De Gemini, liner notes by Filippo de Masi and English edit by Josh Mitchell. For more info and ordering, visit Beat Records.
Jerry Goldsmith’s The Great Train Robbery
16-Dec-2019 - Quartet Records and MGM present a new re-mastered edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s score for the 1978 Victorian adventure-comedy caper, The Great Train Robbery. Goldsmith’s score is one of the best of its period. It features a catchy, vibrant main theme, the locomotive for an exciting, elegant score, powerfully performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded with great precision and detail by Eric Tomlinson at Anvil Studios in London. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the international release of the film (it premiered at the end of 1978 only in the UK) and the release of the original LP, Quartet Records presents an all-new edition with CD 1 showcasing for the first time the score as intended for the film. CD 2 contains the original 1/4″ stereo album master newly transferred. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.  
Bill Conti's The Karate Kid
15-Dec-2019 - La-La Land Records and Sony Pictures present the re-mastered reissue of Bill Conti’s score to the 1984 classic The Karate Kid. Previously out of print, the legendary THE KARATE KID score returns, sounding better than ever. The new, exclusive liner notes by Al Kaplan include new interview comments from Bill Conti, along with an introductory message from star Macchio. Conti’s wonderful and perfectly-pitched score stands the test of time. It’s the film’s musical heart – beating with drama, excitement and inspiration to spare! This special limited edition CD release of 3000 units was sourced from studio vault elements and is expanded with additional music tracks, including the composer’s score for the film’s final fight, which was unused in the film. For more info and ordering, visit La-La Land Records.
Riz Ortolani's Un Dramma Borghese
21-Nov-2019 - DigitSoundtracks will release the complete score by Riz Ortolani for the film Un Dramma Borghese (aka Mimi) for the first time on CD. Riz Ortolani composed an orchestral soundtrack with a recurring main theme resembling a children’s lullaby which was written for the adolescent girl in the film. It has a dramatic introduction and is then expanded on with the harpsichord and reprised in different versions with oboe, harp and guitar, giving it a touch of magic. The rustic atmosphere is often interrupted by dramatic and mysterious passages, as well as baroque music in a pop arrangement. They were able to access the masters in stereo from the original recording session and use everything that had been recorded. For more info and ordering, visit DigitSoundtracks.
Tom Holkenborg's Terminator: Dark Fate
19-Nov-2019 - La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the original motion picture score to the sci-fi action big screen event Terminator: Dark Fate, starring Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mackenzie Davis, produced by James Cameron.

Like the film itself, Holkenborg’s striking music recalls the past, but also charges ahead into exciting new sonic territory. For more info and ordering, visit La-La Land Records.  
Philippe Sarde's The Tenant
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. The music featured a complicated orchestration that required an unusual arrangement of the orchestra. The use of crystal harmonica gives the score a disturbing and bleak character. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
Lorne Balfe's Gemini Man
21-Oct-2019 - La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the original motion picture score to the big-screen sci-fi action feature film Gemini Man, starring Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen, and directed by Ang Lee. Renowned composer Lorne Balfe (Mission: Impossible - Fall Out, 12 Strong) fashions a riveting, propulsive orchestral score that harnesses all the big-scale action and suspense living within this exciting tale of an older hitman who faces off against his younger self. Produced by the composer and mastered by Rueben Cohen, this special CD release is limited to 3000 copies. For more info and ordering, visit La-La Land Records.
Zbigniew Preisner's Shi Gu
17-Oct-2019 - Caldera Records present Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture Lost And Love (Shi Gu). It tells a harrowing (and apparently true) story of loves lost. The love described in the film is the love between parents and their children. For her feature film debut, Sanyuan Peng chose Zbigniew Preisner as composer who wrote one of his very best works, a delicate and yet passionate score which is rich in themes and variations. Its most prominent theme is – fittingly – a lullaby which opens the album. It is a melody which recurs throughout the score in different metamorphoses. For more info and ordering, visit Caldera Records.
Steven Price's Suicide Squad
16-Oct-2019 - Music on Vinyl has released the second version of Suicide Squad on vinyl. It's the story of a secret government agency run by Amanda Waller, named A.R.G.U.S that creates a task force comprising super villains, the "Suicide Squad". They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences. The score is written and composed by Steven Price, who recently won Academy, Bafta and several other awards for his "Gravity" score. For more info and ordering, visit Music on Vinyl.
Nelson Riddle's Rough Cut
1-Oct-2019 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of Nelson Riddle’s score for Rough Cut. The plot is about two sophisticated jewel thieves joining forces to steal $30 million in uncut jewels. Despite a continuous exchange of quips, they eventually become romantically involved. Since Siegel’s usual composer, Lalo Schifrin, was committed to another project, he turned instead to Riddle, who provides Rough Cut with a delicious, elegant, punchy and sparkling score. Riddle’s original score features delicious bossa-novas, elegant jazz atmospheres, romantic moods, brilliant suspense music, a beautiful love theme and incidental music in the best Mancini style. A selection of Duke Ellington standards was also brilliantly arranged and included in the score. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
Nainita Desai’s Untamed Romania
24-Sep-2019 - Silva Screen Records presents Untamed Romania, award-winning composer Nainita Desai’s stunning orchestral score to the saga-like, nature documentary film. Untamed Romania is a full length feature film with an ecological message. This epic documentary unravels over a year and explores all four seasons. The soundtrack is performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and is brimming with charm, uplifting themes, and orchestral colours. Nainita's playful music fully enhances this cinematic adventure and celebrates Romania's astounding mountains, ancient forests and sweeping wetlands that provide undisturbed habitats to many of the Europe’s endangered creatures. For more info and ordering, visit Silva Screen Records.
Stelvio Cipriani's Second Spring
12-Sep-2019 - Chris' Soundtrack Corner presents for the first time the complete soundtrack to Second Spring (Der Zweite Frühling). The entire score to Second Spring was a mix of original music and library tracks by the Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani. He had actually composed a fairly extensive original score for the film, but, unaccountably, most of it was replaced by library tracks for the film's final mix, with only a few cues from the original score remaining in the film. As a result, the film score is quite a curiosity; its soundtrack remains effective and quite lovely, with both the previously-used tracks and the bits of original cues left in the film providing a melodic wash of romantic fragrance and appealing soft jazz in the composer's finest form. Chris' Soundtrack Corner is pleased to make the Second Spring soundtrack available, especially its previously unheard tracks, for the first time. For more info and ordering, visit Chris' Soundtrack Corner.

Multiple theatrical productions based on the movie have played in New York, London and beyond. Varese Sarabande Records is proud to play a part in this enduring legacy by rereleasing David Newman’s score to the original Heathers soundtrack on “very” neon green vinyl, complete with new notes and quintessential images from the film.
