I've heard rumours about what release 200 is and am curious to see if they turn out to be true, especially with certain Amazon links appearing in LLL's Facebook news feed. I guess I'm just looking for some clarification - is an announcement arriving this coming Tuesday?


So what do the rumours mention?


Second star to the right, then straight on till morning.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country would be a lovely thing. However, according to CE's website it states that Intrada is working on it. Regardless... looking forward.

There's no reason to assume #200 will be anything special (though all of these releases are special to someone or another). smile

From a cursory glance at Wikipedia, #50 was Spaceballs, #100 was Battlestar Galactica: Season 4, and #150 was Human Target. No idea what #200 might be, though M.V. said there would be a cool poster/checklist available.

I've definitely noticed the lack of hints, both from M.V. and the gentleman known as "Illustrating the Score" who draws M.V.'s avatars.

More than likely, FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE will be LLL's 200th release

I have the feeling (or secret hope, call it what you like) that the release with catalogue number 1191 is Hook (1991)

I am glad I am not the only one who recognized that!
and makes sense they would hold out just to coincide with that.

Thanks to Miles (MerM) for posting this info...


La-La Land Records is very excited about our next 3 releases. These titles will go ON SALE TUESDAY February 28 at 1 pm PST at www.lalalandrecords.com and at other fine online soundtrack stores.

First up:


THE MECHANIC
MUSIC BY JERRY FIELDING
LLLCD 1191
LIMITED EDITION OF 1200 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

PRODUCED BY FORD A. THAXTON
MASTERED BY JAMES NELSON AT DIGITAL OUTLAND
LINER NOTES BY RANDALL D. LARSON
ART DIRECTION BY MARK BANNING

La-La Land Records and MGM are very excited to announce the reissue of Jerry Fielding’s classic action score to THE MECHANIC. Previously released by Intrada, this new version features some minor digital enhancements courtesy of James Nelson as well as a slightly different listening order of tracks (in other words, if you have the Intrada release keep it and let those that do not have it pick this version up). New artwork by Mark Banning and liner notes by Randall D. Larson are a highlight!

JENNIFER 8 – 2 CD SET
MUSIC BY CHRISTOPHER YOUNG AND MAURICE JARRE
LLLCD 1198
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $24.98

PRODUCED BY DAN GOLDWASSER
MASTERED BY MIKE MATESSINO
LINER NOTES BY JEFF BOND
ART DIRECTION BY DAN 8

We decided to skip parts 1-7 and just release Christopher Young’s breakthrough score to the Paramount Picture thriller JENNIFER 8 instead. wink

This is the score that really put Mr. Young on the map in terms of big studio pics. However, it almost did not happen. Before Mr. Young was brought on board, Maurice Jarre was hired to score the film. He scored about 75% of the movie before his score was tossed and replaced by Christopher Young’s haunting and thrilling music.

This is a very unique release – Mr. Young wanted to “revisit” his career making score and has culled together a great album of his best music featured in the film. Clocking in around 48 minutes this brooding and elegant score will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up while you sit in awe and listen to how beautiful the melodies play out. If you had the previous MILAN release and loved it, you will be even more impressed by this longer and more complicated version.

Disc 2 features everything Maurice Jarre recorded for the film – about 40 minutes of music, a collection of orchestral and synth music very much in the style of his works for GHOST and WITNESS.

This 2 disc set is a fascinating look inside two very different film scores to the same film. Liner note author Jeff Bond interviews writer/director Bruce Robinson about the two scores and gets insightful comments from composer Christopher Young. Dan Goldwasser’s art direction tops it all off.


Pop Quiz, hotshot – what 1990’s action score launched the career of composer Mark Mancina, is newly remastered and expanded and is La-La Land Records 200th release?

SPEED
LLLCD 1200
MUSIC BY MARK MANCINA
LIMITED EDITION OF 3000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

PRODUCED BY NICK REDMAN AND MIKE MATESSINO
DIGITALLY EDITED AND MASTERED BY MIKE MATESSINO
LINER NOTES BY JOHN TAKIS
ART DIRECTION BY MARK BANNING

This action blockbuster NOT ONLY launched the careers of stars Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bollock, as well as director Jan De Bont, but it also catapulted composer Mark Mancina into the “A” list category of film composers.

Composer Mancina crafts a brilliant, pulse pounding action score that became the template for all action films since 1994. Previously released on Fox Records, this newly remastered and expanded version features 70 minutes of balls to the wall, speaker bursting, adrenaline-inducing film music that should be outlawed in all moving vehicles. Producers Nick Redman and Mike Matessino ramp up the excitement and put this bad boy into overdrive by putting the score back in film order. John Takis takes the listener behind the scenes of the film and the score while art director Mark Banning makes it all look good.

We always try to add a little something extra for the fans of the film, and in this case we went ahead and licensed the end credit song SPEED by Billy Idol and included it at the end of this release. . .it had to be there. wink

See y’all next Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 1 pm pst when these 3 titles go on sale!

Huzzah for Mancina's Speed! This announcement infused/breathed new life in our mundane, common, ordinary, banal and unimaginative existences....

I forgot to ask on Facebook what this means in terms of, will LLL do a sudden extra announcement of a CD for sale tomorrow/next week or is it simply the the process of approval, mastering and so on is finally finished and that the CD will be released at, as yet, some unknown time in the future/the next batch post the 28/2.

Wouldn't the adventure end once the CD is in hand. Think of the varied adventures that could still await if it was still a ways from the pressing plant.

Maybe they will drop a now available, ready to order, surprise today?

I hope so, that would be an amazing surprise if it went on sale today.

So we are talking HOOK here?

Well that, or maybe McNeely's Tinkerbell or an expanded JNH Peter Pan smile

MV has teased/hinted SO much that if it were anything BUT Hook, then we would probably be looking at Death of a (Soundtrack) Salesman.

Intrada would probably have first dibs on Tinkerbell (since it's Disney).
