New from Music Box Records
Music Box Records, in collaboration with MGM and with the participation of composer John Du Prez, presents for the first time the complete score to A Fish Called Wanda, newly re-mixed and carefully remastered from multi-track session tapes.
The soundtrack was issued on LP and CD in 1988, it included 42 minutes of music organized into 21 tracks. The current release adds about 31 minutes of brand new material organized into 47 tracks. This Music Box release also features several previously unreleased tracks (alternates, unused cues and demos) and two unused versions of Wanda’s love song, one performed by Rick Driscoll and the other written and performed by John Cleese.
The package includes an 20-page illustrated booklet featuring exclusive liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger and new comments by John Du Prez, producer Steve Abbot and Michael Palin on their collaboration with John Cleese and Charles Crichton. This brand new album presentation celebrates the 30th anniversary of the classic comedy in 2018 and the new 2017 Blu-Ray special edition release from Arrow Films.
In collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, Music Box Records presents Via Degli Specchi (Street Of Mirrors), a previously unreleased giallo score composed by Pino Donaggio and conducted by Natale Massara.
The music for Via Degli Specchi follows in the footsteps of the composer's acclaimed, erotically-charged De Palma thriller scores such as Carrie, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out. In this score, Donaggio follows a ''less is more'' approach with a piano-harp duet focusing on the growing bond between the investigator and the witness. As two female characters clash with tragin results, Donaggio accentuates the relationship with some intimate and carefully crafted themes. The CD also includes two original songs from the picture.
Supervised and mastered by Claudio Fuiano, this present edition features the original album program which was slated to be released on LP, plus a host of bonus tracks. 8-page liner notes by Gergely Hubai discuss the film and the score and also includes original comments by Pino Donaggio.
