https://lalalandrecords.com/fletch-lives-limited-edition/

La-La Land Records and Universal Studios proudly present the fifth 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 1989 comedy sequel, FLETCH LIVES, starring Chevy Chase, Hal Holbrook and Julianne Phillips, and directed by Michael Ritchie. Famed composer Harold Faltermeyer (BEVERLY HILLS COP, TOP GUN, FLETCH) returns to the comedy/mystery world and its iconic lead character established in the 1985 smash-hit original, FLETCH. Never before officially available in any format, Faltermeyer’s engaging and infectious electronic score revisits his famous FLETCH motifs, while spinning and enriching them in expert ways that heighten the film’s action, suspense and comedy. This presentation includes additional source cues, (with Faltermeyer clearly having fun with his Televangelist TV cues), plus a bonus track - the end creole/rock-flavored credits song “Make A Change,” by Buckwheat Zyedco. Produced and mastered by Mike Matessino from studio vault elements, this special release is limited to 3000 units, and includes exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger, with new interview comments from the composer. The sharp art design is by Dan Goldwasser.

Fletch Samples sound great! Was worried that the score would have more of a southern drawl to it taking place where it is but thankfully it is vintage Fletch music. Ordered straight away. Wonder why the first Fletch is held up rights wise... really hoping Lala can break that barrier but in the meantime FLETCH LIVES!

If I remember correctly they intended to do the first but Varese’s release of the original album prevented it.

That’s disappointing but hopefully the moratorium on varese’ release will be up within the year.

It is truly bizarre that LLL hasn't posted an announcement for this if it's available now. MV OK?

Yeah, but the whole press release deal wasn't. I don't know, it seems weird for them not to promote the titles when they're actually available!

As great as this release is, I'm just a bit disappointed that the "Song of the South" doesn't seem to be on here. The absence is strange, especially considering the fact that the song played a prominent role in the film and was sung by Chevy Chase himself. Anyone know why it was left off?

$5000 payable to Disney Music Publishing, artist approval required, and it had nothing to do with the composer of the score, who was involved in the release and very pleased with the result.

Chevy Chase and/or Disney throwing a spanner in the works?

Would the $5000 have been within La La Land's budget for this release? Would Chevy Chase have approved the inclusion of his song? Is he an easy guy to work with? Does Harold Faltermeyer get along with him? I like "Song of the South" a lot better than the Buckwheat Zydeco song. If both songs couldn't be included (due to budgetary reasons?) and given the choice between only including one of the two songs, I would have gone for the former.

If it was a budgetary issue, I would have gladly paid a few dollars more if necessary to cover the additional licensing costs especially since the score is not that long to begin with.
