The latest release from Intrada is an expanded version of James Horner's lively score for the 1989 Disney hit HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS, featuring Horner's sequencing from the previous Intrada releases plus three additional cues.

La-La Land has announced their current schedule of releases for May, with two releases set for next week: the soundtrack to one of Alfred Hitchcock's final films, TORN CURTAIN, the romantic spy thriller pairing Paul Newman and Julie Andrews, featuring the cues Bernard Herrmann (in his final collaboration with the director) recorded for the film before his score was rejected, and an expanded version of the replacement score by Oscar winner John Addison (Tom Jones, The Seven-per-cent Solution); and a fifth volume of their series STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES - THE 1701 COLLECTION, this edition featuring episode scores by five-time Oscar nominee George Duning (From Here to Eternity, Picnic).

The latest releases from Buysoundtrax and its related labels are a two-disc set of Morton Stevens' score for the 1979 TV minseries BACKSTAIRS AT THE WHITE HOUSE; GERALD FRIED: THE WESTERNS VOL. 1, featuring the composer's music for the small (Story of a Rodeo Cowboy, Wagon Train) and big (Terror in a Texas Town) screens; THE JIM DOOLEY COLLECTION VOL. 1, including the composer's demo music for his unused score to TV's Cosmos; and FRANZ WAXMAN: LEGENDARY HOLLYWOOD VOL. 1, a rerelease of re-recordings of classic film music by the two-time Oscar winner.

The latest releases from Quartet are a new edition of James Horner's score for the 1983 Rambo percursor UNCOMMON VALOR (one of seven films he had in release that year), featuring some additional alternate takes not featured on Intrada's earlier release of that score; and a non-film music CD, Gustav Holst's THE PLANETS in a recording with the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by none other than Bernard Herrmann.

The latest releases from Music Box are an expanded 20th anniversary edition of Debbie Wiseman's score for the period caper adventure ARSENE LUPIN, and the score for the new French thriller LE TABLEAU VOLE (Auction), composed by Alexei Aigui (I Am Not Your Negro). 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the latest updates to their awards rules, including the following music categories changes:

In the Music (Original Score) category, three composers will be allowed to receive individual statuettes if, in rare circumstances, they all contributed fully to the score. Previously, three composers were required to submit as a group. The rules now clarify the definition of a group as a recognized band. The shortlist will increase from 15 to 20 titles.

The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc edition of Danny Elfman's score for author Cliver Barker's second feature as a director, the wild horror thriller NIGHTBREED, with Disc One featuring the full score and Disc Two featuring the original 1990 CD sequencing plus 21 minutes of extras.

La-La Land has announced two new releases for April, expected to begin shipping next week -- a CD pairing two scores by Oliver Nelson (The Six Million Dollar Man, Zigzag) -- the Western DEATH OF A GUNFIGHTER and the adventure film SKULLDUGGERY; and an expanded version of Sylvester Levay's score for NAVY SEALS, featuring the stereo tracks from the original Intrada release plus previously unreleaed cues from mono sources.

The latest of Caldera's releases of rare David Shire music presents music from three of his 1970s TV projects -- the pilot score for the short-lived TV series THREE FOR THE ROAD, and cues from two TV movie scores, THE GREATEST THING THAT ALMOST HAPPENED and DADDY, I DON'T LIKE IT LIKE THIS.
