Intrada releases Sony / Columbia / TriStar material too. Blue and the Gray, Body Double and China Syndrome, for example.

Nice listing though! smile

Great idea!

Varese has released some Disney owned stuff, most notably the Bernstein rejected scores box.

Convenient list! Now, of course, the next step is knowing which label released what film. I never pay attention to such things.

He, he...yeah, I just want a good film, and don't really care if it's produced by McDonald's or the Society of Postage Stamps Collectors.

IMDB has info on producers/distributors with a few clicks under "Company Credits".

Producers/Distributors who are defunct can be matched with their current owners here:

MGM owns the Cannon library, so you may as well lump Cannon in with United Artists/Orion/AIP/Post-86 MGM.

You need to add American International.

It's already there, under "United Artists / AIP / Orion / MGM (after 1986)"

True, but it didn't seem as if Kritzerland, Varese or FSM had recently issued any Cannon scores, while they had issued UA scores. Have I missed them?

I suppose, although Buena Vista, Sony, and Concord aren't generally considered to be soundtrack specialty labels.
