Ernest Gold's Cross Of Iron
12-Jun-2022 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with StudioCanal and Capitol Records, presents the premiere CD reissue of the powerful score by Ernest Gold for Sam Peckinpah’s anti-war classic Cross Of Iron (1977)Gold immediately grasped the sardonic, bitterly ironic tone of the film. His brilliant “Main Titles” cue features a children’s choir singing the traditional song “Hänschen klein” (or “Little Johnny”) in alternation with a contrasting German march to show the absurdity of war. Gold also provides an operatic, dark background score and a dramatic, powerful “Steiner’s Theme,” for the James Coburn character. This new CD release contains the same program previously released on LP by EMI in the UK. The album includes virtually all the music Gold recorded, with around 15 minutes more music than the film itself. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
Michael Kamen's The Iron Giant
27-May-2022 - Varèse Sarabande Records announces the LP release of The Iron Giant (Deluxe Edition) with music by Michael Kamen. The 2-LP package taps directly into the ethos of the film, with a pull tab opening the Giant’s die-cut eyes on the front jacket. Creating The Iron Giant’s beautiful, sympathetic score was Michael Kamen's one of his last major scores and his first animated film, miles away from the action blockbusters for which he had become known, but much closer to his heart. Kamen’s gorgeous score is full of melody, humor and sensitivity, grandly performed by the Czech Philharmonic. This Deluxe Edition adds an additional 13 minutes of alternates, outtakes and rare demos—including a piano-and-guitar attempt at an unrealized song, “Souls Don’t Die,” based on Kamen’s theme, performed by Kamen and Eric Clapton. For more info and ordering, visit Varèse Sarabande.

Tangerine Dream’s Firestarter
15-May-2022 - Varèse Sarabande revisits the glory days of 1980s sci-fi “synthwave” with a new edition of Tangerine Dream’s classic electronic score for Firestarter (1984)The band considered Firestarter one of their most challenging scores, as they needed to provide not only suspense and pace for the paranormal chases and powers, but an emotional sensitivity to the child protagonist. New liner notes by Randall D. Larson explain how the band did not score to picture, but created “wild” cues to be used by the film’s music editors. Hence this 11 track program is the same as MCA Records’ 1984 soundtrack album, released by Varèse Sarabande on CD in 1990, and newly remastered for this long-awaited reissue.

Roy Budd's Get Carter
2-Apr-2022 - Music on Vinyl has released Get Carter, the classic 1971 British gangster movie, starring Michael Caine in a career-defining role as a London gangster out for revenge in the grim North.

The score continues to inspire musicians worldwide. Performed by Budd, in interplay with Jeff Clyne and Chris Karan (both of the Dudley Moore Trio), the trio carry the emotional weight of the soundtrack which has led to a number of covers and tributes.

These fun bits serve as the perfect counterpoint to the film’s most notorious sequence, a zombie hoard’s attack on a televised aerobics class. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
