La-La Land Records and Universal Studios proudly present the fourth title in the acclaimed Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection -- the world premiere official release of the original motion picture score to the big-screen 1977 horror chiller, THE SENTINEL, starring Chris Sarandon, Cristina Raines, Ava Gardner, Burgess Meredith and Martin Balsam, and directed by Michael Winner. Never before officially available in any format, renowned composer Gil Mellé’s chilling music is an expertly experimental mix of large orchestra and electronics that has earned its place as one of the great ’70s genre scores. Unnerving and horrific, tragic, yet somehow beautiful, Mellé’s work deepens the film with astounding dimensionality. Produced, mixed and mastered by Mike Matessino from multi-track studio vault elements, this special release is limited to 3000 units, includes bonus source and musical effects cues, and features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writers Jeff Bond and James Phillips, with sharp art design by Dan Goldwasser.

Academy Award-winning composer John Williams (STAR WARS, E.T., HARRY POTTER) unleashes an iconic musical masterwork, propelling the Man of Steel through what is still considered by many to be the best superhero film ever made. A recent discovery of the score’s original 2-inch, 24-track music masters has led the way to a stellar, high-resolution transfer by Warner Sound. This first generation element has been restored, remixed, assembled and remastered by album producer Mike Matessino, resulting in a stunning presentation of this legendary score that is unparalleled in its sonic quality. Discs One and Two present maestro Williams’ film score in its glorious, full form, while Disc Two also contains a bounty of alternate/additional cues (including an astonishing early version of “The Fortress of Solitude” that remained vaulted and unplayed for four decades), and Disc Three showcases the original 1978 soundtrack presentation, rebuilt and remastered from these newly restored recording elements.

Having been present at the film’s scoring sessions, Reissue Album Producer for 20th Century Fox, Nick Redman, describes composer Zimmer’s score as, “…a gorgeous tapestry unfurling before us, shimmering majestically in the air… There were many moments where the score moved one to tears: the juxtaposition of music with image was so affecting.” Finally, this powerful and important score has been given a deluxe treatment worthy of its breadth and scope in a new presentation that is greatly expanded beyond its initial soundtrack release - with a bounty of never-before-released material. Discs 1&2 present the film score as written in chronological film order (Disc 2 also contains additional alternates), while Disc 3 features the remastered original 1999 soundtrack album and Disc 4 contains RCA’s album of Melanesian chants from the film.

Some funny trivia from imdb about Sentinel (1977) score

"Academy Award-winner John Williams was originally supposed to score the music. However, when Williams backed out to do a project by George Lucas, Michael Small was later supposed to be a replacement. Small eventually was unable to do the score which led to Golden Globe-nominee Gil Mellé, who composed a chilling score which blends the elements of Williams, Jerry Fielding, and James Horner."

The above imdb quote is utter rubish and deserves to be deleted. Gil's music sounds nothing like Williams or Fielding.

Mellé was composing in the style of James Horner...in 1977??

Yeah ... but by 1978, Mellé shied himself away from that Horner influence and began instead to imitate the sounds of Klaus Badelt.

What an awesome customer service by LLL.
Ordered Sentinel score today and got shipping notification...wait for it...today.


MD, I see from your profile that you're in the "EU"... Does that mean European Union or Estados Unidos? The questions don't get much dumber than that, but I'll at least tell you why I'm asking -

I'm too old and staid to get excited about pretty much anything nowadays, but I'm making an exception for THE SENTINEL. I stopped ordering direct from the US about ten years ago, instead just pre-ordering from European stores and waiting weeks or sometimes months for the goods. But I was in no hurry, and although it seemed that it would work out cheaper ordering from the US, at least when ordering from within Europe I knew I wouldn't have additional import charges and bollox like that. So I just sat patiently.

But when you mentioned the "awesome customer service", I thought "Bugger this waiting. It's Gil freakin' Mellé and it's the flippin' Sentinel, man!", and so I am rethinking my stance today. Shall I order direct from LLL? Or shall I not? These are the burning questions which keep the FSM Board at the cutting edge.

One further question - I did send an email or something to LLL, but I think I did it wrongly and it went into the void - The shipping and handling charges are quite clear on their site, but are there any additional charges which appear as optional just when you're about to submit your order? That's what stopped me ordering from SAE, the "50 dollars insurance charge, or no replacements in case of loss".

This was specifically for MD, but anyone within the EU (if that's the European Union, ie France, Spain, Germany, Italy... there might be more) is free to help me with my queries. Even comments from the Estados Unidos, why not? Hang on, I'm forgetting somebody - Mr (Member) in France. Number 1 Gil Mellé fan (it's not me after all). How are you ordering this, Member? Or is it classified information?

Graham, LaLaLand are cool for ordering overseas.
They don't add any extra postal charges over what's advertised AND their packages generally avoid those dreaded customs duties.
Although Intrada are a tad cheaper in their postage/packing rates (and stock other label titles too, so the more you order from them, the cheaper it is, so they're best for bulk orders), LLL are cool too and if you see any other bargain CD's at their site that you're interested in, bung em in with that crazy Gil Melle sh!t you keep bangin' onnaaarrrbbaarrr.
