Am I the only one who desperately wants a CD with Graeme Revell's massive "FROM DUSK TILL DAWN" score!!?

I would take a legit release. I figure it would have to be paired with something, though. There's almost no score in the film until they get to the Titty Twister.

I remember the most interesting bits of the score were 100% stolen from Penderecki's A Polish Requiem. So, if you're into that score, you should probably go check out the Penderecki.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000000AZ7/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000001GCU&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=01C2PDXVP7V7F2WJWYYV

In fact, a simple Google search brought up this interview with Revell.

Q: "In 1996, you met Robert Rodriguez on FROM DUSK TILL DAWN. I've noticed similarities with POLISH REQUIEM by Penderecki. Can you tell me some words about this excellent horror score with these thunderous and powerful latin chorus, which was connected again to your horror music style that you seem to appreciate?"

A: "It's extremely good of you to notice the connection with the Polish Requiem because what happened when I met Robert is I said I'd really like to write a Mariachi surf opera. He said that would be cool and I knew I had a like-minded friend. He came to my studio and I showed him a cool way of working which is to take lots of different, really disparate elements…Actually, I might have even played some bits and pieces from the Polish Requiem for him amongst other very Latin operatic kinds of material. I was showing him how you could cut it up and shift it around in little bits. Then we went up to Utah and recorded with a real choir and orchestra. He has told me since that he really responded to that way of working and incorporated it into his own style."

I gotta add if you are into any of the wacky, avant garde horror shock scoring.....look
into the Polish composers, especially Penderecki. That stuff is f'ing unbridled unleashed
hell, orchestral heavy metal, literally (some of KP's works incorporated sections of
train tracks into them, etc).....

Thanks for the suggestions! I have been always very impressed with this kind of huge and over-the-top choral/symphonic music, especially when used in films.
"FDTD" deserves a CD release not only because Graeme Revell is a great composer, but also because this score is an absolute blast! Especially those "Aliens-like" action parts.
Beloved Labels, please think about it...

Like I said in a similar thread: Why not release a From Dusk Till Dawn Trilogy album featuring Graeme Revell`s score to the first one, Joseph Williams score to the second and finally Nathan Barr`s score to the third movie.

I think I read an interview with him where he pretty much apologized for his score for Tomb Raider. I thought that was amazingly humble and honest of him. I like his score for Titan AE, a rather forgotten film, very good though.

I do enjoy Joseph Stanley Williams' theme from TEXAS BLOOD MONEY.
