FILL YOUR HANDS…with two new awesome releases from La-La Land Records next Tuesday, Sept 24, 2013 at 12 pm pst!

TRUE GRIT
MUSIC BY ELMER BERNSTEIN
LLLCD 1260
LIMITED EDITION OF 3000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

EXECUTIVE ALBUM PRODUCERS: LUKAS KENDALL AND NEIL S. BULK
MASTERED BY DOUG SCHWARTZ
LINER NOTES BY JEFF BOND
ART DIRECTION BY JIM TITUS

La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Capitol Records/UME are proud to present Elmer Bernstein’s rousing score to the classic Academy Award winning John Wayne Western TRUE GRIT. After waiting decades for a proper release fans can finally rejoice in this definitive presentation of one of the genre’s greatest films! The previous LP/CD, while an interesting experiment, never quite delivered the “goods” for any film score enthusiast. For many, it left them wanting more. Well, now you have it! Mastered from the original ¼ inch mono masters, Producers Lukas Kendall and Neil S. Bulk have put together what Western fans and film score fans alike have been clamoring for over the years! With help by audio wizard Chris Malone and mastering engineer Doug Schwartz fans can finally hear Mr. Bernstein’s score in all its brilliance on cd! In addition to the film score, we have included several songs licensed and recorded for the film including various versions of the Main Title song performed by Glen Campbell, as well as a demo of the song THE EYES OF THE YOUNG performed by Elmer Bernstein himself (co-written by Don Black)! Also included on this set are 3 versions of GO HOME GIRL one version performed by John Hartford and two other versions performed by Glen Campbell. Antique looking booklet design by Jim Titus adds to the authenticity of Jeff Bond’s rustic, informative notes.

Now we go from The Duke to the HAMMER!

I, THE JURY
MUSIC BY BILL CONTI
LLLCD 1275
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

PRODUCED BY NICK REDMAN AND FORD A. THAXTON
SCORE RESTORATION BY MIKE MATESSINO
MASTERED BY DANIEL HERSCH AT D2 MASTERING
LINER NOTES BY JULIE KIRGO
ART DIRECTION BY JIM TITUS

La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox get down and dirty with the World Premiere release of Bill Conti’s score to I, The Jury, based on the best selling novel featuring that iconic private eye Mike Hammer. This thrilling, jazz infused score is quite possibly the coolest soundtrack we have released this year! Like the film itself, the score is loud, sexy and in your face. It takes no prisoners and makes no excuses. Eye catching art direction by Jim Titus make you feel like you are flipping through the seedy pages of a Mickey Spillane novel as you read through the in depth liner notes by film score historian Julie Kirgo, taking you deep inside the pulpy mind of Bill Conti. Quotes from famed pianist Mike Lang round out this stellar package.

Both of these titles go on sale next Tuesday, Sept 24 at 12 pm pst at www.lalalandrecords.com as well as other fine online specialty stores.

I like the tadlow rerecording of True Grit so will probably pick that one up.
Also intrigued by the Conti but will have to check the samples out first.

True Grit original tracks!. Fantastic news. I've waited for these for 43 years.

One of Elmer's very best scores. Many thanks LaLaLand.

Big news here! TRUE GRIT is one of the most prized Holy Grail scores left out there, particularly by Bernstein.

Fantastic stuff. I somehow never listened to the album version of this score, only the re-recording so it is time to check out the album in preparation for this new version to see if I crave more.

EDIT: Yeah, something about the instrumentation of this score really puts me off. I'll stick with the re-recording.

The score of True Grit as heard in the film, and which is on the La-La-Land release sounds nothing like the original album (apart from the title song)

Oh! In that case, I can't wait to hear the samples. I've seen the film some time ago but I can't remember much about the score.

What is I THE JURY sourced from? Studio masters or that low quality unmentionable that's been floating around?

Are you seriously asking that question?

Yes, I am. Why? Because it seems that a lot of Conti's scores from this period have been lost or only exist from cassette tape masters. I know Intrada struggled for a long time to come up with an adequate source for BAD BOYS and their release was from a source that sounded closer to a cassette tape. THE FOURTH WAR didn't sound much better. RED SONJA was lost and had to rely on a previous CD for the source. The quality of the new Mancini sounds very poor. None of this is Intrada's fault and I'd rather have the music than not have it, but I'm curious to know what it's sourced from.

So don't give me the 'tude, okay? I didn't imply that the score wasn't licensed. I'm a huge fan of this particular score and since the film is pretty obscure (no DVD release even), I'm not convinced the original score master elements have been preserved. But I do know there's a 'adequate' sounding **** out there (which I happen to have), and it's quite possible in the absence of any other source, that it could be mastered to sound okay. I'm more than happy to be proved wrong.
