Empire of the Sun is one of my all-time favorite films and scores, but there's really not that much missing from the original CD.

A.I., on the other hand (for me, the greatest score of the new century) absolutely demands an expanded/complete release -- the original release barely scratches the surface.


Yes, I was thinking the same thing. The original release of Empire of the Sun seemed pretty complete to me. Of course, it's an absolutely wonderful score.

I would be THRILLED to see a complete release of A.I. though - really, really hope this happens.

The original album of Empire of the Sun is certainly not complete! There's a good 13-14 minutes of music in the film that isn't on the OST, not to mention who knows how many alternate versions of cues were recorded.

One of the unreleased cues from the end of the film, the "Bringing Them Back" cue, is one of the best cues in the score!


As for AI, there is a 2CD Oscar Promo that has 99% of the complete score on it that's been available for years online. Obviously a legitimate retail release would be fantastic, especially since as noted the OST is missing more highlights than any JW OST I can think of outside of ROTJ AND IJTOD.

Hopefully the expanded reissue will be Elfman's Midnight Run that MV hinted at last year.

One of the unreleased cues from the end of the film, the "Bringing Them Back" cue, is one of the best cues in the score!

Is this the cue when his young friend is shot by one of Basie's goons? If so it's GLORIOUS, with Williams pulling out all the choral, heavenly stops. For me it would be worth the double dip alone.

Here's the scene:



There's also some music missing on the album from the film version of "Seeing the Bomb."

I'd also be curious to see a new producer's take on the album presentation. It's an episodic movie and therefore an episodic (read: somewhat disjointed) score by Williams' standards, but even so the album is really oddly laid out and top heavy, with "Cadillac of the Skies" right in front. It would be great to get the complete score (however long it may be) in film order.

Believe me, I'd be thrilled to have a complete EMPIRE, and just thinking about the "Bringing Them Back" scene makes me tear up a little. But A.I. is truly one of the most frustratingly sequenced of 21st century score soundtracks -- no David's theme, no Rosenkavalier, TWO versions of the unused song...

Yea, the AI OST is a mess. The 2CD FYC Promo was a blessing.

A.I.
Was an album I really enjoyed for its diversity.

EMPIRE OF THE SUN
I liked solely for Exultate Justi

I'd get either expansions in a heartbeat!

La-La Land Records
THREE exciting new titles are going on sale at La-La Land Records next Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 12 pm pst:

First up:

JOHN CARPENTER’S ESCAPE FROM L.A.
MUSIC BY SHIRLEY WALKER AND JOHN CARRPENTER
LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 UNITS
LLLCD 1285
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

EXECUTIVE ALBUM PRODUCER (FOR LA-LA LAND RECORDS) DAN GOLDWASSER
MASTERED BY DOUG SCHWARTZ AT MULHOLLAND MUSIC
LINER NOTES BY DANIEL SCHWEIGER
ART DIRECTION BY DAN GOLDWASSER

Paramount Pictures and La-La Land Records present an expanded Limited Edition release of Shirley Walker’s and John Carpenter’s score to ESACPE FROM L.A. For the sequel score to the cult hit ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, composers Walker and Carpenter create a vastly more heroic symphonic score while retaining the inventive electronic palette that had come to represent Snake in the previous film. This newly expanded release clocks in at nearly 79 minutes, featuring music recorded for, but unused in, the final film. New liner notes by Daniel Schweiger and artwork by Dan Goldwasser round out this slick package.

Next up:

When asked if one would be interested in reissuing a score by Basil Poledouris to film directed by Paul Verhoeven the answer is always a resounding -- YES!

FLESH AND BLOOD
MUSIC BY BASIL POLEDOURIS
LIMITED EDITION OF 1200 UNITS
LLLCD 1293
RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

PRODUCED BY FORD A THAXTON
MASTERED BY JAMES NELSON
LINER NOTES BY RANDALL D. LARSON
ART DIRECTION BY MARK BANNING

MGM and La-La Land Records are proud to present the “RE-re-reissue” of one of Mr. Poledouris’ finest scores – FLESH AND BLOOD. If you are a previous owner of this magnificent score there is absolutely no need whatsoever for you to purchase this score again (unless you are a label completest). However, if you did not get the chance to purchase this amazing score – a score much in the vein of the composer’s Conan music -- then I highly recommend buying this muscular action fantasy extravaganza! While retaining the Intrada releases running order, the new album’s producer (Ford A. Thaxton) along with the mastering engineer (James Nelson) have tweaked the sound to their liking. New liner notes by Randall D. Larson have also been added to this release. Previous releases of Poledouris’ FLESH + BLOOD have featured album notes incorporating comprehensive analysis of the film’s musical score in detail. Rather than rework the same type of commentary here, Larson decided to let Mr. Poledouris speak for himself. He went back to the original interview that he and David Kraft did with Mr. Poledouris at his home on May 19, 1985, which to our knowledge was the only detailed contemporary interview he gave on the subject of this film. Much of that lengthy conversation has remained unpublished until now. Classy art direction by Mark Banning is the cherry on top.

If you don’t have this magnificent score now is your chance to snatch it up! It’s one of Mr. Poledouris’ best works!

Last but not least we will have SIGNED COPIES of Bear McCreary’s latest opus:
KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM
MUSIC BY BEAR MCCREARY
RETAIL PRICE $15.98

Like with previous autographed versions of Bear’s work, this one is also limited to 360 units on the La-La Land Records website. Once they are gone, they are gone for good from us.
Unsigned, regular retail copies can be purchased through Bear’s website or directly through amazon.com

These 3 new releases go on sale Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 12 pm pst at www.lalalandrecords.com
See y’all then!

La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and WEA join forces to present the expanded and remastered re-issue of legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith’s (THE BLUE MAX, PATTON, THE OMEN, BASIC INSTINCT) original motion picture score to the 2002 Paramount Pictures espionage thriller THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, based on the acclaimed Tom Clancy novel of the same name, starring Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman and Liev Schreiber, and directed by Phil Alden Robinson. Goldsmith brings his decades worth of musical prowess to bear on a young Jack Ryan’s desperate mission to stop a potential nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia, triggered by a Neo-Nazi leader who threatens to detonate a nuke in an American football stadium. Striking themes and motifs abound in Goldsmith’s powerhouse orchestral score, expertly weaving patriotism and hope with chilling dread and nail-biting suspense in equal measure. It’s undoubtedly an important work from this iconic maestro’s final chapter. With an expanded running time almost 30 minutes longer than the original 2002 soundtrack release, this deluxe presentation of THE SUM OF ALL FEARS features previously unreleased score cues as well as bonus tracks and songs – all of it remastered by Doug Schwartz in stellar sonic fashion. Produced by Dan Goldwasser, this limited edition of 3000 units features exclusive, in depth liners by writer Jeff Bond and thrilling art direction by Goldwasser.

La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox present the remastered re-issue of Tangerine Dream’s (SORCERER, THE KEEP, LEGEND, MIRACLE MILE) original score to the 1983 motion picture sci-fi drama WAVELENGTH, starring Robert Carradine, Cherie Currie and Keenan Wynn, and directed by Mike Gray. Electronic musical geniuses Tangerine Dream find the inner-pulse of this overlooked cult gem about a pair of lovers who attempt to rescue innocent, child-like aliens held captive in a secret government installation and help return them to their world. This striking score manages moments of sublime beauty and poetry, even spirituality, while also supporting the film’s quotient of menace and suspense. Previously out-of-print, WAVELENGTH returns in this handsome re-issue sounding better than ever. Produced by Nick Redman and Ford A. Thaxton and remastered by James Nelson, this limited edition of 1500 units also features in-depth, exclusive liners from writer Randall D. Larson and otherworldly art design by Mark Banning.
