CORRAL) original motion picture score to the 1957 Paramount Pictures romantic drama WILD IS THE WIND, starring Anna Magnani, Anthony Quinn and Anthony Franciosa, and directed by George Cukor. This 2-CD set, with a running time of almost 108 minutes, gives one of Tiomkin’s forgotten gems its well-deserved deluxe treatment, featuring the original film score, first-time ever released, on Disc 1 and the remastered, original Columbia Records LP re-recording on Disc 2. The film score contains music that was dialed out of the film prior to its release, while the LP re-recording kicks-off with the Johnny Mathis-performed title song. Produced by Lukas Kendall and Didier C. Deutsch, meticulously mastered by Doug Schwartz (Disc 1) and Tim Sturges (Disc 2), and restored by Chris Malone (from ¼’’ mono masters), this special release, limited to 2500 units, features exclusive, in-depth liner notes from writer Frank K.

Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox present the remastered release of acclaimed composer Mark Snow’s (THE X-FILES, MILLENIUM, GHOST WHISPERER, BLUE BLOODS) original motion picture score to the 1998 motion picture THE X-FILES: FIGHT THE FUTURE, starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and John Neville. Composer Snow launches the beloved television series, THE X-FILES onto the silver screen with an astounding score that retains the show’s already established sonic palette of atmospheric synths, while opening up its musical universe with the addition of a live orchestra. This special limited edition release features much improved sound and contains some music not previously released. Also, the incorrectly reversed stereo channels on the original soundtrack release have been corrected here. Produced by Mark Snow and Nick Redman, and mastered by Mike Matessino, this exciting release also contains exclusive liners by writer Julie Kirgo and an updated print interview with Snow conducted by film music writer Randall D. Larson. This is a limited edition on 3000 units.

Acclaimed composer John Morris finds the perfect pitch with his rousing and delightful orchestral score -- supporting story, character and action with verve, while expertly enhancing, but never stepping on, all the big laughs. Infectious themes abound – the main title being one for the ages! All these years later, the IN-LAWS still holds up as one of the great American comedies – and now finally, Morris’ wonderful score gets its due! Produced by Matt Verboys and Neil S. Bulk and mastered by James Nelson, this special release, limited to 1500 Units, features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Randall D. Larson and smile-ready art direction by David C. Fein.

This 3-CD set features the original scores to all three NAKED GUN films, with the scores to the first two films remastered and greatly expanded beyond previous releases and the world-premiere release of NAKED GUN 33 1/3. Mr. Newborn’s robust orchestral scores to this classic comedy franchise, (created by the legendary ZAZ team of David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker), are a wondrous explosion of thrills, suspense, high-octane action and passionate romance – and then there’s that iconic big-band-swing NAKED GUN theme, as iconic, indelible and bigger-than-life than Lt. Frank Drebin himself. This collection features bonus tracks and songs from the films as well, including “I’m in to Something Good,” “I Guess I’m Just Screwed,” the Pia Zadora-performed Academy-Awards show-stopper “This Could be the Start of Something” and quite possibly the greatest rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” ever recorded, sung by opera great Enrico Pallazzo (in a never-before-heard prerecorded performance).

Produced by Dan Goldwasser and Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this 3-CD limited edition release of 2000 units features a 36-Page Booklet with exclusive liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger, including comments from the composer and filmmakers. Crime-stoppingly fun art design is courtesy of Dan Goldwasser. A must-have-listen for the home, the car, at work, and extended stays at Statesville Prison.

Heralded as one of the acclaimed composer’s finest works, Mr. Williams’ masterful orchestral score seeks no less than the openness of the human heart, mind and soul – the perfect compliment to this powerful and indelible film about a young English boy’s emotional and physical struggle to survive the Japanese occupation of China during WWII.

This deluxe re-issue was produced, assembled and mastered by Mike Matessino in cooperation with John Williams, Steven Spielberg and the film’s co-producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. Disc 1 contains a full presentation of the film score, including never-before-released music, while Disc 2 pulls back the veil of the creative process with a selection of alternate cues and other additional music.

Music by Marc Shaiman
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Universal Music Special Markets present the remastered and expanded release of acclaimed composer Marc Shaiman’s (CITY SLICKERS, ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES, THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, HAIRSPRAY) original motion picture score to the 1991 Paramount Pictures gothic comedy feature film THE ADDAMS FAMILY, starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia and Christopher Lloyd, and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.

Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this deluxe re-issue clocks in at over 70 minutes and is greatly expanded beyond its original 1991 soundtrack release. There’s music here that Shaiman wrote and recorded that didn’t make the final cut of the film, as well as Bonus Tracks that include the trailer’s music and more!

Renowned for his concert compositions, this was Mr. Corigliano’s debut film score – a strikingly original and thrilling work, both spellbindingly haunting and emotionally powerful, that would receive an Oscar nomination. Personally supervised by Corigliano, this special release of his ground-breaking score was remastered by Mark Wilder and produced by Didier C. Deutsch. In depth, exclusive liner notes from writer Jeff Bond include new comments from the composer as they take you behind one of the most notable films and scores of the 80’s, while Dan Goldwasser’s atmospheric art design takes you deeper into the beyond. A must-have for any soundtrack enthusiast, ALTERTED STATES has returned sounding better-than-ever!

Hamlisch’s robust and thematic score is ripe for discovery – a beautiful and sincere work that is both heartfelt and exciting as it expertly and emotionally ties together all the dramatic and action elements of the film’s clever sci-fi riff on the classic Pinocchio story. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by James Nelson, this special limited release of 1500 units also features the song written for the film, “Somewhere I Belong,” written by Hamlisch/Pitchford and performed by Teddy Pendergast.

Looking forward to Thunderbirds - the music was the best part of both films. A pity there wasn't more music (it's been a long time since I've seen either but I assume there was more in the first film than is on the CD?) and I assume it's been dependent on how much music survived.

But isn't it great that such effort has been gone to put out a CD of the original tracks nearly 50 years down the line? I'll gratefully take whatever music survives, and my thanks to everyone involved with this CD.

By the way, I think that's fantastic artwork....smile

It's strange that there haven't been more replies to this announcement.

Barry Gray's music for Thunderbirds is some of the greatest T.V./Film music ever written, the man was a genius.

I agree about the artwork, that is some of the best artwork ever to grace a soundtrack album.

Ford, please could you give us fans here some more information as to how the music was assembled etc, just to keep us going until we actually get those precious discs into our hands in a week or so?

Any info would be appreciated.

Finally ... the Columbia LP of Tiomkin's WILD IS THE WIND ...



... arrives onto CD along with the original tracks.

This should be one of the highlights for 2014, I think, in Bob DiMucci's annual LP-to-CD threads around December. smile

La-La Land is the current Champion (pun) of Dimitri Tiomkin's music.

All the "Wind" titles confuse me, apart from Gone With the Wind.

It so inside BASEBALL kind of stuff.

The album was assembled by the guys from the tapes they had from Barry's estate, they delivered a master, we reviewed and Mark Banning put the artwork together, Jeff Bond didn't the notes and you have a CD.

That's about it.

It's strange that there haven't been more replies to this announcement.

"It's not that hard to believe, I'm afraid." (Pursuit)

You have to remember that Thunderbirds isn't as massive today as it was in the '60s or indeed the '90s, not to mention that Barry Gray never established a name for himself outside of the Gerry Anderson universe (remember, he retired from film and TV scoring after getting kicked off Space: 1999 - whereas the likes of Derek Meddings and Steven Begg went on to other successful projects). Plus the gap in American name recognition between International Rescue and Doctor Who (for instance) is pretty big... and we're dealing with two movies that were box office flops in their day and even nowadays aren't as beloved as their source.

All that said, I'll still get this. smile

"Wild is the wind" doesn't mean anything never having seen the film to me but it's Tiomkin so I will definitely give the sound samples a go.

"Thunderbirdsa are go" and "Thunderbird 6" however Oh man do they ever ring a thundering bell. I can't believe that this soundtrack just appears out of nowhere. Where have you been hiding these beauties Lala? Under the pool? Under the house? Or behind the rockface blocked by palm trees?
What it lacks in love from others, I'll make up for it. I love Thunderbirds, and love Barry Gray's music for the Anderson puppet series. Even with their weak elements, some things on this planet are an absolute force for good, nothing but positive, healthy and a beautiful thing in life; "Superman the movie", the 1966 "Batman" tv series, "The man from U.N.C.L.E."AND "Thunderbirds". One of the vital elements for it's goodness? Barry Gray's music. It's an essential part; the invisible actor and the melodic sound effect.
F.A.B.solutely ordered!!

D.S.
