Music Box has announced two new December soundtrack CD releases -- the first-ever release of Maurice Jarre's score for the 1988 TV mini-series THE MURDER OF MARY PHAGAN, starring Jack Lemmon and Peter Gallagher, based on the real-life tragedy which inspired such diverse works as Fritz Lang's Fury and the Broadway musical Parade; and Gabriel Yared's score for the 1984 fantasy NEMO (aka Dream One).


Varese Sarabande plans to announce their final CD Club release for the year next Monday.


The latest release from Kritzerland presents the soundtrack to director Busby Berkeley's 1943 movie musical THE GANG'S ALL HERE, featuring songs by Harry Warren and Leo Robin, music direction by Alfred Newman, and the music of Benny Goodman and his orchestra.

Aisle Seat 12-6: December Rundown Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 12/5/2016 - 9:00 PM
A film that unexpectedly frightened the daylights out of me, Richard Fleischer’s THE BOSTON STRANGLER (***½, 116 mins., 1968, R) is that rare thing: a Hollywood-produced film made at an odd time when the business of moviemaking was beginning a radical change, shifting away from the mostly sanitized studio product of the ‘50s and towards the more explicit “realism” of the 1970s. In fact, “The Boston Strangler” can be looked upon as a turning point in Hollywood, a crackerjack and disturbing thriller that clearly influenced director William Friedkin in his later works.

 Intrada has announced their final three CD releases for 2016, which are now available to order -- the first CD release of concert composer (and musical humorist, as "PDQ Bach") Peter Schickele's beloved score for director Douglas Trumbull's 1972 sci-fi cult classic SILENT RUNNING, featuring the same tracks as the original MCA (and later Varese Sarabande) LP, taken from a vinyl source since the original score tapes remain lost (the LP featured virtually the entire score); the first-ever release of Basil Poledouris' lush sequel score RETURN TO THE BLUE LAGOON; and the first full release of Bruce Broughton's score for the family comedy ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS, whose previous CD release was a mixture of songs and 15 minutes of Broughton cues.


A week ago La-La Land announced a whopping five new Black Friday releases -- the long-promised, four-disc STAR TREK 50TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION, whose contents include library music from the original series, unreleased cues from the later series, and, most notably, the first-ever release of score cues from the well-regarded animated series from the 1970s; a four-disc set featuring John Williams' complete scores for Steven Spielberg's blockbuster hits JURASSIC PARK and THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK; a two-disc set featuring remastered versions of Don Ellis' scores for THE FRENCH CONNECTION and its sequel (previously released by Film Score Monthly), as well as Brad Fiedel's previously unreleased score for the unsold TV pilot POPEYE DOYLE, in which Ed O'Neill played the role which won Gene Hackman his first Oscar in 1971; and separate, first-ever score CD releases for Harold Faltermeyer's BEVERLY HILLS COP and BEVERLY HILLS COP II.
