Ennio Morricone's Maddalena
10-Dec-2021 - Quartet Records presents a 50th-anniversary remastered edition of the innovative, cult-classic score Maddalena by Ennio Morricone, a key work which launched one of the composer’s best known themes.It is a relatively obscure entry in the Morricone filmography despite the importance of launching “Chi mai,” one of the composer best-known cues and famous worldwide a decade later when it was re-used in the film LE PROFESSIONEL. While the score itself is more psychedelic with lots of percussion, vocalization and experimentation, the self-contained “Chi mai” turned out to be an overnight success that was eventually turned into a song as well—eventually recorded in multiple languages. This new edition features the original album program produced by Morricone himself for the General Music LP. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.

Ennio Morricone's Il Gatto A Nove Code
1-Nov-2021 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with GDM, presents a 50th-anniversary remastered edition of the cult-classic score by Ennio Morricone for Dario Argento’s 1971 giallo Il Gatto A Nove Code (The Cat O'Nine Tails)The film is about a newspaper reporter and a retired, blind journalist who try to solve a series of killings connected to a pharmaceutical company’s top-secret experimental research projects; in doing so they become targets of the killer. Ennio Morricone can be considered the inventor of the giallo sound, as he was the inventor of the Spaghetti Western sound or the political-cinema sound.

Ennio Morricone's Il Prigioniero
3-Sep-2021 - Digitmovies presents on LP a musical jewel by Ennio Morricone from the TV movie Il Prigioniero (aka The Prisoner)Ennio Morricone has composed an extremely serious score which reflects the whole sentimental and dramatic side of the historic atmosphere, in which the protagonist is immersed. The author varies the main theme with different orchestrations: the romantic, but nostalgic L'estate è finita for flute, harpsichord and orchestra. The second motif I Due Prigionieri is introduced by the solo flutes in an almost experimental context. This painful atmosphere is broken up by "source music" which re-creates the sound of that era, like the Sicilian folk song for voice and guitar Si l'ammuri and the romantic oldfashioned romantic tune for male voice, piano and guitar Dove sei amore. For more info and ordering, visit Digitmovies.
Zbigniew Preisner's Man Of God
2-Sep-2021 - Caldera Records presents Zbigniew Preisner’s score for the motion picture Man Of God. From the beginning, it was clear to Preisner he wanted to use a choir a Byzantine one. After some searching, he collaborated with the Choir of Chanters, “The Maestros of the Psaltic Art”. Following their collaboration of “Valley of Shadows”, Zbigniew Preisner and Lisa Gerrard worked together again. Furthermore, Preisner felt it the right choice to use Greek instruments. It was obvious and necessary for a film about a Greek saint. Man Of God is one of Zbigniew Preisner’s richest scores, a unique exploration of symphonic music infused with local, Greek, colour, electronics and Byzantine elements, particularly in the employment of Lisa Gerrard’s special talent, used to powerful effect. For more info and ordering, visit Caldera Records.
Jerry Goldsmith's Love Field
26-Aug-2021 - Varèse Sarabande has released Jerry Goldsmith's score for Love Field. Goldsmith composed a tender Americana score for Love Field, with lyrical strings and bluesy piano offering warmth and period flavorings, not unlike his gentle, humanistic music for actual 1960s dramas. The film also features moments of suspense and action—as society looked askance on relations between races at the time—which Goldsmith captured with more intense strains. Released by Varèse Sarabande at the time of the film, Goldsmith’s Love Field soundtrack has been expanded to nearly double the length for this Deluxe Edition. Also included is a bonus section of blues piano tracks performed by the prestigious rock and blues pianist, Bill Payne, which replaced some of Goldsmith’s music in the finished film. For more info and ordering, visit Varèse Sarabande.
Various The Unchained Melody - 29 Killer Versions
15-Aug-2021 - Jasmine Records presents The Unchained Melody - 29 Killer Versions, a unique compilation with twenty-nine different versions of 'Unchained Melody', across a wide range of musical styles. Although its theme song, UNCHAINED MELODY, sold in its millions and has gone on to become one of the most recorded songs of all time, the movie from whence it originated, 'Unchained' (1954), was a relatively obscure film-noir, the leading role played by American footballer Elroy 'Crazylegs' Hirsch, who'd never acted before. It includes the four biggest 'original' 1954 American hits, by Les Baxter, Al Hibbler, Roy Hamilton and June Valli, as well as Jimmy Young and Liberace's successful UK cover versions, while the 'original' movie soundtrack clip features Todd Duncan. For more info and ordering, visit Jasmine Records.
John Barry's Midnight Cowboy
12-Aug-2021 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Capitol Records, Universal Music Enterprises and the Phil Ramone estate, present the official LP reissue of Midnight Cowboy. The musical score presented a new concept, widely used in the last decades, but not in the late sixties - a combination of songs and original music wisely developed into a perfect underscore. John Barry, who had already won three Oscars in 1969, appeared under the credit of “Music Supervisor,” but also composed a series of original cues and supervised the entire musical concept of the film, along with legendary American producer Phil Ramone. For this new Quartet LP release, the classic 1969 soundtrack album has been entirely remixed and mastered from recently discovered first-generation multi-track tapes and includes two bonus tracks. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.
Danny Elfman's Sleepy Hollow
10-Aug-2021 - Intrada Records has released Danny Elfman’s powerful greatly expanded 1999 horror soundtrack Sleepy Hollow on 4 CDs! Danny Elfman fashions arguably his biggest, most vividly terrifying score, written for massive orchestra, chorus plus boys choir and soloists, with pipe organ in tow. Elfman melds haunting lyricism with dynamic power and dense intensity. Results are now gentle, now thundering. Epic indeed! Adding further weight to score, Elfman creates several lengthy sequences: The Tree Of Death, The Church Battle, The Windmill, The Chase and Final Confrontation, plus others. Some 95 minutes of music appears in the finished film. All of it appears on this 4-CD release. But there is much much more! Over an hour of additional alternates and rescored sequences also appear. Some of these offer considerably different takes on the same cue, others have rewritten bars that offer subtler alterations. For more info and ordering, visit Intrada Records.
