“FAR AND AWAY: LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET)”
Music by John Williams
Limited Edition of 3500 Units
RETAIL PRICE: $29.98
STARTS SHIPPING MARCH 13

La-La Land Records, in association with Universal Pictures, Imagine Entertainment and Geffen Records, proudly present the remastered and expanded 2-CD reissue of renowned composer John Williams’ (CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE, E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL), original motion picture score to the 1992 period drama FAR AND AWAY, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, directed by Ron Howard, and produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Bob Dolman. Maestro John Williams unleashes a powerhouse orchestral score for this lavish and historic romantic epic, set against the giant canvas of the Oklahoma Land Rush of the early 1890s. With powerful contributions from legendary Irish musicmakers The Chieftains, Williams creates a musicscape that swells with traditional Irish sounds and themes -- expertly blended within the dramatic and romantic orchestral swirl. This restored 2-CD release showcases this glorious music in deluxe fashion – with the composer’s original score as recorded for the film expanded beyond its original 1992 soundtrack and featuring a selection of alternate cues. Produced, edited and mastered by Mike Matessino and supervised by the composer, this expanded 2-CD program also takes you behind the film and its score with Matessino’s exclusive liner notes. Jim Titus provides the classic art direction. This is a limited edition release of 3500 units.

Holy shit! I was honestly thinking that there was nothing left to release that would blow me away.

I was wrong.

Eh it's a good song.

But what I'm wondering is why no one is complaining there's no original album included. Everyone loves those right?

Damn! I cannot afford it until the 13th exactly. Do you think it will hold on until then ? frown

Yes, but I presume way too expensive to licence and therefore unnecessary in a score album.

But what I'm wondering is why no one is complaining there's no original album included. Everyone loves those right?

Not obligatory either, it would make the program repetitive. Plus, it says "supervised by the composer".

I'm probably in the minority on this but I consider it an act of mercy.

For me the original album is a generous and satiating presentation of the work -- but I'm ordering the new one anyway, since Michael Mattesino's remastering is sure to be a vast improvement on the 1992 CD.

I can usually live without the original album, especially as I already have it.

Add me to the list of people really happy that they DIDN'T include the original release edition again.
