GM, LLL stopped advertising products as 'Complete' a while back. There was too much nagging over what justified the term.

We'll probably have everything on there. smile

I think they only put that because of some minor complaints like "Hey! The 7-second alternate take for this part film (fill-in-the-blank) isn't here! It isn't COMPLETE!"

But I do believe that all the scores that say 'Expanded' (Home Alone, 1941, and Bad Girls to name a few) are complete or practically complete. I do like the word 'Complete' better, but hey, getting more score is itself a treat!

That's true! I mean If this had more than the biggest boot it would be like five discs lol and I doubt that they'd do that so it would only be "expanded" compared to that heh

I'm very excited for this! Hurry up and let us buy it lol

Yeah, but the biggest boot had a ton of repeats on it. Multiple takes of Arrival of Tink / Flight to Neverland where nothing of value was lost; film edits of things; album edits of things; take all of that out, we should be good.

I suspect we'll get inserts and things like that presented "as is" (like on Home Alone); but that's ok, most of us aren't lazyasses, we can afford to edit music. big grin

This will obviously be another "limited edition," so I wonder how many units it's going to be. This is going to be an instant sell out. I hope La La Land takes into account how popular this is going to be. Intrada's Space Camp sold out in a day and 1941 didn't take very long either...

Not only is LLL's expanded Fall Of The Roman Empire out today, but there are fewer than 200 copies left of 55 Days At Peking! I didn't expect a Tiomkin to sell that quickly, so kudos to La La Land for good sales on that title.

Hook and possibly another title or two should be announced in two days! I wonder what else is up LLL's sleeve...

Hook and the Robe! THIS is why Reissues are appreciated!



Ahoy, matey’s! It’s almost here! No, not John William’s masterful score to HOOK, but Easter…and nothing says Easter like an awesome Alfred Newman biblical score!

THE ROBE: EXPANDED ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK (2-CD SET)
LLLCD 1203
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $24.98

PRODUCED BY NICK REDMAN
MASTERED BY DANIEL HERSCH at d2 MASTERING
LINER NOTES BY JULIE KIRGO
ART DIRECTION BY DAN GOLDWASSER

Like Christ, Alfred Newman’s heavenly score to the 1953 psychological biblical epic THE ROBE has risen from the dead. Long out of print, La-La Land Records resurrects one of Mr. Newman’s greatest scores, fully remastered and slightly longer than previous editions. This epic score has been given the Redman/Hersch/ Matessino attention it so richly deserves…never has this powerful score sounded so divine. Insightful liners by the lovely Julie Kirgo and masterful art direction by Dan Goldwasser also add to this classic reissue.

While it’s not a brightly colored Egg, our next release is certain to brighten some of your Easter baskets. . .

La-La Land Records and Sony Music presents the world premiere release of the official remastered and expanded edition of renowned composer John Williams's original score to the 1991 Tri-Star Pictures adventure/fantasy Steven Spielberg-directed epic, HOOK! Long considered one of the maestro's best scores in collaboration with Mr. Spielberg, this masterwork is finally presented here in a worthy 2-CD release that contains more than 140 mins of music, including alternate and unused cues, greatly expanding the score's original 1991 album assembly with more than 65 minutes of music previously unreleased. Amazing art design by Jim Titus and great, in-depth liners from film music writer Daniel Schweiger round out this amazing soundtrack experience that will have you never wanting to grow up!

This album assembly was supervised by John Williams . . .the completed project approved by both John Williams and Steven Spielberg.

We've been listening to this thing at La-La Land non-stop and are so excited to finally share it with all of you next Tuesday!

Question for La La Land? Have you guys ever looked at doing spider-man 3 there's still so much material unavailable and surely plenty of unused/alternate cues too.

Looking forward to hook, not a huge fan of the film but love the score and def getting it to support the label.

If I understood correctly, MV said there's a weird rights thing preventing expanded releases of the Elfman and Young scores.

Hope that gets sorted out eventually, I'd love an official (preferably complete) release of 3.

That's correct. There's something weird going on so that there is no way a label can release a score... for now, anyway. I'm not sure how long. I remember reading about many, many people asking Christopher Young about it and he was getting tired of answering that same question all the time. I too would love a release of Spidey 3, but for now, we just have to wait. frown

It has something to do with Young using some of Elfman's material in Spiderman3. You have to pay 2 composers. Some along the lines of Young having to get permission to you Elfman's music into his score of the film. Something along those lines. I cannot remember exactly.

Not just Elfman, but wasn't it an issue of other additional composers being used in Spider-Man 3's score as well? Just for small parts, but parts nonetheless.

Yes that was it additional composers. That's what is causing the release of this

Oh of course Elfman's themes, additional composers sure is a shame tho but hopefully one day we can see a realease of all the music composed for that movie.
