Since the 'All News La La Land' apparently doesn't work:



La-La Land Records
THREE exciting new titles are going on sale at La-La Land Records next Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 12 pm pst:

First up:

JOHN CARPENTER’S ESCAPE FROM L.A.
MUSIC BY SHIRLEY WALKER AND JOHN CARRPENTER
LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 UNITS
LLLCD 1285
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

EXECUTIVE ALBUM PRODUCER (FOR LA-LA LAND RECORDS) DAN GOLDWASSER
MASTERED BY DOUG SCHWARTZ AT MULHOLLAND MUSIC
LINER NOTES BY DANIEL SCHWEIGER
ART DIRECTION BY DAN GOLDWASSER

Paramount Pictures and La-La Land Records present an expanded Limited Edition release of Shirley Walker’s and John Carpenter’s score to ESACPE FROM L.A. For the sequel score to the cult hit ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, composers Walker and Carpenter create a vastly more heroic symphonic score while retaining the inventive electronic palette that had come to represent Snake in the previous film. This newly expanded release clocks in at nearly 79 minutes, featuring music recorded for, but unused in, the final film. New liner notes by Daniel Schweiger and artwork by Dan Goldwasser round out this slick package.

Next up:

When asked if one would be interested in reissuing a score by Basil Poledouris to film directed by Paul Verhoeven the answer is always a resounding -- YES!

FLESH AND BLOOD
MUSIC BY BASIL POLEDOURIS
LIMITED EDITION OF 1200 UNITS
LLLCD 1293
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

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

MGM and La-La Land Records are proud to present the “RE-re-reissue” of one of Mr. Poledouris’ finest scores – FLESH AND BLOOD. If you are a previous owner of this magnificent score there is absolutely no need whatsoever for you to purchase this score again (unless you are a label completest). However, if you did not get the chance to purchase this amazing score – a score much in the vein of the composer’s Conan music -- then I highly recommend buying this muscular action fantasy extravaganza! While retaining the Intrada releases running order, the new album’s producer (Ford A. Thaxton) along with the mastering engineer (James Nelson) have tweaked the sound to their liking. New liner notes by Randall D. Larson have also been added to this release. Previous releases of Poledouris’ FLESH + BLOOD have featured album notes incorporating comprehensive analysis of the film’s musical score in detail. Rather than rework the same type of commentary here, Larson decided to let Mr. Poledouris speak for himself. He went back to the original interview that he and David Kraft did with Mr. Poledouris at his home on May 19, 1985, which to our knowledge was the only detailed contemporary interview he gave on the subject of this film. Much of that lengthy conversation has remained unpublished until now. Classy art direction by Mark Banning is the cherry on top.

If you don’t have this magnificent score now is your chance to snatch it up! It’s one of Mr. Poledouris’ best works!

Last but not least we will have SIGNED COPIES of Bear McCreary’s latest opus:
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM
MUSIC BY BEAR MCCREARY
RETAIL PRICE $15.98

Like with previous autographed versions of Bear’s work, this one is also limited to 360 units on the La-La Land Records website. Once they are gone, they are gone for good from us.
Unsigned, regular retail copies can be purchased through Bear’s website or directly through amazon.com

These 3 new releases go on sale Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 12 pm pst at www.lalalandrecords.com
See y’all then!

AND....

As I imagine other cultists are as well, I'm most curious about that BLUE MAX release.

Can't keep up with all these McCreary releases - I already have a handful on my wishlist. Good thing I'm not an autograph collector, or I'd be broke smile

Also, great news about Matrix Revolutions!

I have been a member of this board for a while and rarely post, but read just about everything. Let me just say how totally excited I am about Escape from LA. An amazing score. Carpenter and Walker together are great. Thank you so much La La Land.

Not that I have a clue, but I have to assume that it probably mirrors the Intrada
release, as that has THE best sound/presentation.

Or it's a 4 cd set with the Varese, the Sony, the Intrada, and another go by La-La? ;-)

From the FB comments:

"As we posted, there is virtually no difference in our Flesh and Blood release. We released it because we could. It's for folks who don't have one. As for Blue Max we will have more info on this title later in the month. I will say this -- it's a 2 cd set rebuilt from the ground up by Nick Redman, Neil S Bulk and Mike Matessino with new notes by Jeff Bond (as well as updated notes by Julie Kirgo) and art direction by Jim Titus."

Maybe LLL heard there were source cues that Sony didn't cover on their reissue of The Blue Max, and were like, "SOURCE CUES? BONUS DISC - ALL SOURCE CUES!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Tis is an interesting release... I LOVE the grungy rock take on the Escape From New York theme, and Walker contributed some excellent muscular orchestral stuff ... hmmm an expansion could be delicious !

Thanks Scott, I missed that & oh lordy......

Yes, thanks Scott, I missed that too. It'll have to remain a curiosity for now. I'm happy with the Intrada release but if it's a substantial improvement in sound....

But it's certainly always nice to have seminal scores like this available in the marketplace to new audiences, regardless of what I happen to own.

That is quite possibly the most heartfelt, honest and logical thing I have ever read on this board. Are you sure you are in the right place?

Seriously though -- thank you for being a voice of reason. You get a cookie!

The 4th release of Flesh & Blood and the 4th release of The Blue Max. In the same thread. Gotta be a piss-taking record! Lol.

We already know the Varese and Sony releases of The Blue Max were flawed. Now we're expected to believe the Intrada was too? Hmmmm...

I don't think 'flawed' is the reason for a re-issue but rather availability. And it's a perfectly good reason.

We old timers do forget that every year there is a new generation of score folk
who only see insanely priced OOP titles that the rest of us take for granted.

So, it's cool, reissue away, doesn't hurt me, and it's not like MV is looking at
a table of titles and saying "Hmmm....I could issue HELEN OF TROY, OBSESSION,
or THE BLUE MAX....I'll go MAX, that'll fix those complainers, let Benny & Maxie sit
in the vault a bit longer, muahahahaha!!!" :-/

The Blue Max is one of the most thrilling scores ever composed for the movies. Additional availability and improvement is absolutely most welcome!

Oh, oatmeal raisin? I just, no it's fine, I just wanted chocolate chip. No I know you took the time and resources to make cookies and no one's forcing me to eat it, but I'm just saying it's not what I would have wanted for myself, that's all. I might have tried it if you'd added walnuts, but from what I've read there are only raisins in there so I'm not going to bother. Plus I'm allergic to walnuts. But if there's free shipping I might try it anyway, so go ahead and send it.

Iam a big fan of this score. For me it will be a third dip but nonetheless with another take at the mastering.Plus Im sure we will get some bonus alternates and maybe an Lp edit on disc 2. lets have it.

The February release of THE BLUE MAX probably ties in with the Blu-Ray of the movie from Twilight Time.

So, what's the selling point this time?

Cheers

Oh for Pete's sake, I'll take the damn cookie big grin
