Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season. 2013 was another great year here at the triple L. A lot of dream projects were finally realized for us. 2014 promises to be as exciting as ever with a plethora of amazing projects from the Golden Age to the Digital Age. We will be covering exciting releases from the worlds of film, television, animation and video games… scores by some of our favorite composers as well as some by composers new to the label.

Speaking of which, let’s kick off the 2014 with not one but TWO releases by composers new to the La-La Land Catalog:

FANTASTIC VOYAGE
MUSIC BY LEONARD ROSENMAN
LLLCD 1279
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE $19.98

PRODUCED BY LUKAS KENDALL AND NICK REDMAN
MASTERED BY DANIEL HERSCH at D2 MASTERING
REVISED MASTER PREPARATION BY MIKE MATESSINO
LINER NOTES BY JULIE KIRGO
ART DIRECTION BY JIM TITUS

20th Century Fox and La-La Land Records are proud to announce a new release of a true sci fi classic – FANTASTIC VOYAGE by Leonard Rosenman. Long out of print, this highly sought after masterpiece is now BACK IN PRINT looking and sounding better than ever (PLEASE NOTE: No new tracks have been added). Mike Matessino lovingly restored this release using today’s technology improving upon the original FSM release that came out 15 years ago. New liner notes by Julie Kirgo take the listener deep inside the score and film. Jim Titus’ art direction is second to none -- laying out one of his finest packages to date. Clever and classy, it truly lives up to its FANTASTIC title!

Our next new release for 2014 comes to you courtesy of yet another composer making his first appearance in our catalog:

DEAD AGAIN
MUSIC BY PATRICK DOYLE
LLLCD 1284
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE $19.98

PRODUCED BY DAN GOLDWASSER
MASTERED BY DOUG SCHWARTZ at MULHOLLAND MUSIC
LINER NOTES BY BRIAN SATTERWHITE
ART DIRECTION BY DAN GOLDWASSER

Paramount Pictures and La-La Land Records are happy to announce the expanded and newly remastered score to Patrick Doyle’s masterpiece DEAD AGAIN. Clocking in at over 78 minutes, tons of material has been added to this lush and bombastic score. Full of melody and intrigue, composer Doyle takes the listener deep inside the psyche of Kenneth Branagh’s intense film and helps them navigate through the twist and turns of this reincarnation Hitchcockian thriller. Film composer/score historian Brain Satterwhite examines this twisted film noir exploring the film, its inspiration and Doyle’s intricate score. Dan Goldwasser’s art direction rounds out this gothic thriller’s package. One of our favorite scores of the 1990’s finally gets to be heard in all it’s glory (even featuring music cut from the final film)!

Both scores go on sale TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 at 12 pm pst at www.lalalandrecords.com and at other fine online soundtrack retailers

See y’all next week!

Honestly, I am not blown away by either of these titles. Were people really wanting a reissue of Fantastic Voyage?

I will probably check out Dead Again, since I don't have the original Varese.

Oh Dead Again. I like the film and Doyle's score adds so much to it.
Looking forward to hearing more than the 31min Varese release. Time to retire that soundtrack album to the charity shop.

Sooooo so so very happy to see DEAD AGAIN on this list! I love the short CD from Varèse and can't wait to hear the full remastered score. Thank you once more, La-La!

I'm a little surprised that there is that much music for Dead Again! I thought the original album covered most of the important elements of the score and that there may have been ten or so more minutes of music, but it appears there was a lot more music dropped from the film! Interesting!

Dead Again was one of the first 3 CDs I ever owned. It made me an instant Doyle fan. Will I buy the expansion? Someday. Right now, I am waiting for Suspect to come in the mail! smile

Wow... the original CD has always been a pretty much perfect album for me, but I am very interested in this. The score is one of my all time favorites and my favorite Doyle, hands down .... oh this is good news indeed, bravo to the LaLa monkeys!

Is that really the criterion now? You have to be blown away? These are two very, very solid titles. "Fantastic Voyage" is a great score that has been out of print for years. Are you saying nobody new should ever be able to get it?

If these don't appeal to you, you may have to wait all of a day or two for the next limited editions from some other label to be announced.

MV dropped a hint like a month ago that Harry Potter was possible - he made no promises. I wouldn't chalk any of that up to a commitment. If it comes from LLL, it'll be announced a week prior to that day - and it will be nice surprise.

FANTASTIC. Dead Again was my intro to Doyle (I got Henry V after). Great score. I'm also amazed there was that much music left out, though because my hopes are now up that probably means that it's 35 minutes of source music tacked on to the end.

Doyle was almost unimpeachable in this period. Highly, highly recommended if you've never heard it.

Check out this cue before they sandwich it in between two slower tracks! Haha (cries)

Love "classic" Doyle but never saw the film or heard the score before. So I'm interested.

When I got Doyle's "Needful Things" the booklet had the director praising "Dead Again" so naturally I sought out the score and it is amazing. Also surprised at the amount of additional music, the movie was on tv couple of weeks ago and it is scored heavily and I wouldn't be surprised a lot of new cues will be source, but even so it will be amazing to get an expanded Doyle! Is this the first time an album of his gets expanded?
