Klaus Badelt's The Time Machine
4-Mar-2023 - Varèse Sarabande has released The Time Machine, the first solo score by Klaus Badelt, then working for Hans Zimmer, but soon to have a prominent career of his own: Pirates Of The Carribean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, Constantine, The Promise, Poseidon and many more. Badelt wrote a sweeping, magnificent, fan-favorite score for The Time Machine. The music is acoustic and symphonic, befitting the aesthetics of the 19th century protagonist, and the grand, romantic adventure he takes across time. The orchestra is embellished with tribal music for Earth’s future denizens, and aggressive, modernist stylings for the terrifying Morlocks—all of it beautifully produced for a modern blockbuster. This Deluxe Edition expands the album to 23 tracks and 76 minutes. For more info and ordering, visit Varèse Sarabande.
Kevin Kiner's Black Scorpion
2-Mar-2023 - Dragon’s Domain Records presents the original soundtrack to Black Scorpion, featuring music composed by Kevin Kiner for the 1995 action film. Produced by Roger Corman, BLACK SCORPION was a 1995 Showtime film, starring Joan Severance as police detective Darcy Walker, secretly known to a small few as the Black Scorpion. After her father is murdered before her eyes, detective Darcy becomes the vigilante Black Scorpion to avenge him. Kiner’s score was primarily synths, but he did manage to include a handful of live players. The film is scored in the manner of a standard detective thriller, with tense percussion and mostly synth elements, but once Darcy dons her black leather outfit and roars around the City of Angels in her Scorpionmobile, Kiner reprises his action vibe with strings, winds, and heavy percussion.

Philippe Sarde's Mort D'Un Pourri
1-Mar-2023 - In collaboration with Warner Chappell Music France, Music Box Records continues to explore the collaboration between Philippe Sarde and Alain Delon, and presents the complete score for Mort D'Un Pourri (Death of a Corrupt Man). The music does not go for the expected codes of the thriller genre: there is little action, few effects, few twists and turns. This great score is one of Philippe Sarde’s most beautiful and emblematic works, performed by the famous London Symphony Orchestra and carried by Stan Getz’s saxophone, the musical embodiment of a solitary character and the archetypal instrument of the American film noir. This edition has been fully remastered from all-new hi-res transfers of original stereo mixes and features previously unreleased tracks.

John Barry's Chaplin
10-Feb-2023 - La-La Land Records, StudioCanal and Sony Classical celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the 1992 big-screen biographical drama Chaplin with a newly remastered, deluxe presentation of the film’s original motion picture score by John Barry. Barry’s notable and elegant orchestral score, considered one of late composer’s last great works for the cinema, is an integral part of this creative and thoughtful chronicling of the career of the great Charlie Chaplin. Romantic, dramatic, comedic and more, Barry’s diverse and thematically rich original score, recorded at Abbey Road with the English Chamber Orchestra, also interpolates a number of Chaplin’s own music compositions such as “Smile” and his scores to CITY LIGHTS and LIMELIGHT. This special limited edition CD presentation is expanded with previously unreleased material. For more info and ordering, visit La-La Land Records.
Ennio Morricone's The Sicilian Clan
10-Dec-2022 - Quartet Records, in collaboration with Fox Records, Island Def Jam and Universal Music Enterprises, presents a remastered and expanded edition of Ennio Morricone’s iconic score The Sicilian Clan. The memorable score by Ennio Morricone consists of an evocative, idiosyncratic main theme that is developed in four distinctive elements throughout the score. Morricone’s music was often marked by unusual instrumental and effects; in this score, those include a distinctive “Sicilian boing” and the whistling of Alessandro Alessandroni. The score was released worldwide by Fox Records (except in Italy, where the rights belong to CAM) in a brilliant, beloved 30-minute album that has been reissued on LP and CD several times. This CD includes the remastered album and also several versions—differing in length and orchestration—that Morricone recorded for the slightly different American and European cuts of the film.

But while the album contained most of the score’s highlights, it ran just 28 minutes, or a little more than half of what Barry had recorded at London’s CTS studio. This CD marks the first release of the entire score, thanks to the recent discovery of previously unknown tape rolls in the Universal vaults. Included are the remastered original Decca album in stereo and the score presentation in mono, as it has survived. For more info and ordering, visit Quartet Records.

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.
Ludovic Bource's OSS 117: Le Caire Nid D'Espions/Rio Ne Répond Plus...
26-Jul-2022 - Japanese CD release! Two original soundtracks to the spy comedy series OSS 117: Le Caire Nid D'Espions and OSS 117: Rio Ne Répond Plus... from Academy Award-winning director Michel Azanavicius and star Jean Dujardin is now available on one CD! Even though the film was made in the 2000s, it has plenty of the feel of an old movie and pays homage to Azanavicius' 60s spy films. The music, too, is full of homage and respect. Arrangements in the style of John Barry from "007" and melodies in the style of Burt Bacharach. 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".
