Barry Gray's The Secret Service
18-Aug-2022 - Silva Screen Records has released The Secret Service with music by Barry Gray. To appropriately reflect the The Secret Service’s premise and compliment the gentle title sequence created to introduce the series, Barry Gray decided step completely away from his usual attention-grabbing themes and write a three-part fugue in the style of the Baroque composer Bach. To perform the vocals, the Mike Sammes Singers were hired, the vocal group who Gray had used on the Supercar theme back in 1961. Once coupled with soft organ and minimalist percussion, a truly unique piece of inventive music was born to bookend Father Unwin's adventures, which perfectly captured the off-beat nature of the series.

Ennio Morricone's Red Sonja
5-Aug-2022 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with Studio Canal, presents an expanded, remastered edition of Ennio Morricone’s classic sword-and-sorcery score for Red Sonja (1985), directed by Richard Fleischer. Initially conceived as a kind of continuation of the Conan saga started three years earlier by the same producer, Dino de Laurentiis, the original idea was to tie in Sonja’s character with the rest of the Conan universe and create a trilogy featuring the hulky Cimmerian. But the picture eventually became just a loose appendage to the franchise, although it kept the same director as Conan The Destroyer and Schwarzenegger as the main star. Ennio Morricone, who took over after Basil Poledouris scored the first films, provides a powerful and exciting score dominated by an epic march as the main theme, far away from the Poledouris style. The score also features a beautiful love theme, fierce action cues, adventure music and dark and mystical passages. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.

The music, which also evokes Lalo Schifrin and Neal Hefti, was composed by Ludovic Bource, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Score and the Golden Globe for "The Artist".

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.
Jerry Goldsmith’s Seconds
16-May-2022 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with Paramount Pictures, presents a remastered, restored and slightly expanded edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s marvelous score for Seconds (1966)Jerry Goldsmith’s fascinating score take us on a musical journey through one of his finest works, building on the psychological complexity of scores such as FREUD and his work on THE TWILIGHT ZONE while anticipating the effective contrast of sacred and profane on future projects such as his OMEN trilogy. In addition to the original score, also is included as bonus material the source music for the long cocktail sequence, which was specifically recorded for the film and conducted by Goldsmith – including a source piece by the master himself.

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. For more info and ordering, visit Varèse Sarabande.  
Fernando Di Leo’s Trilogy

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.
