This week Intrada announced two brand new score CDs from popular composers.

It was writer-director John Milius' autobiographical surfing drama Big Wednesday that gave composer Basil Poledouris his first big studio feature project, and the pair collaborated on four more features including Red Dawn and the classic Conan the Barbarian. Their final feature (and Milius' last feature to date) was the 1992 adventure drama FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER, an adaptation of the Stephen Coonts novel starring Willem Dafoe and Danny Glover as Navy pilots during the Vietnam war. The Intrada Special Collection is the first commercial release of Poledouris' stirring orchestral score.

Crime novelist Elmore Leonard, who began his career writing paperback Westerns, wrote the original screenplay for the 1972 Western JOE KIDD. John Sturges, maker of classic Hollywood adventures like The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape, directed Clint Eastwood and Robert Duvall in the lead roles, and the Intrada Special Collection CD is the first commercial release of Lalo Schifrin's full score, though the composer's recent boxed set My Life in Music featured two Joe Kidd cues.

Kritzerland also announced two new CDs this week.

It was a full decade after the smash hit Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid that 20th Century Fox produced a prequel to the lighthearted Western (whose less-than-lighthearted finale precluded a traditional sequel). TV veteran Allan Burns (who was nominated for an Oscar for the same year's A Little Romance) wrote BUTCH AND SUNDANCE: THE EARLY DAYS, with the great Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night, The Three Musketeers) directing Tom Berenger and William Katt as the younger incarnations of the roles memorably played by Newman and Redford, plus a top notch supporting cast including Jeff Corey (reprising his role from the original film), John Schuck, Peter Weller, Jill Eikenberry, Christopher Lloyd and Brian Dennehy. Jerry Goldsmith was originally announced to score the film but the assignment ultimately went to Patrick Williams, whose charming, melodic score was quite different from Burt Bacharach's Oscar-winning music for its predecessor. Until now, the only soundtrack release for Williams' Butch & Sundance score was a Japanese LP, but the Kritzerland CD features the complete score as featured in the film followed by the original versions of several cues that were ultimately rewritten.

Five-time Oscar nominee George Duning (From Here to Eternity, Picnic) composed the score for the 1962 gambling comedy WHO'S GOT THE ACTION, directed by Daniel Mann and starring Dean Martin, Lana Turner, Eddie Albert, Paul Ford and Walter Matthau. The Kritzerland CD features the cues in film order, a mixture of stereo and mono, plus a handful of bonus tracks.

BROKEN CITY - Atticus Ross, Claudia Sarne, Leopold Ross

"It’s well shot, and Atticus Ross’s score channels ’80s-movie synth soundtracks in ways that I think are supposed to be ironic. You could do worse on a slow Saturday night when there’s nothing else on cable."

Ty Burr, Boston Globe


"Ji Yong Kim’s sharp HD lensing, Mowg’s neo-Western flavored score and Franco Carbone’s well-mounted production design round out a classy tech package."

Justin Chang, Variety
