Remastered and expanded beyond its initial download-only release, this jam-packed 2-CD presentation of LAIR, produced by John Debney and Dan Goldwasser, and mastered by Marc Senasac at Sony PlayStation, even includes the live concert suite performed by the The Orchestra Filarmonia and Ziryab Choir at the BSO Spirit Awards.

Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records and Taurus Entertainment present the restored, remixed and expanded re-issue of composer John Harrison’s (EFFECTS, DAY OF THE DEAD) iconic original score to the 1982 horror classic CREEPSHOW, starring Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau and Leslie Nielsen, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. Long out-of-print and one of La-La Land’s earliest, best-selling releases, CREEPSHOW returns in an all-new limited edition supervised by the composer, re-sequenced in film order and remixed from original 24 track elements. One of the most beloved and influential horror scores of 80’s horror, Mr. Harrison’s CREEPSHOW now sounds better than ever! Complimenting this assembly are exciting BONUS TRACKS, showcasing several never-before-released and long-sought-after library cues featured in the film, including the song “Don’t Let Go” from the movie’s “Father’s Day” segment.

THE SUM OF ALL FEARS: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1295
Music by Jerry Goldsmith
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

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.

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.

Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records, WEA and Warner Bros. presents the latest release in its Expanded Archival Collection, the 2-CD remastered and expanded re-issue of renowned composer Don Davis’ (BOUND, THE MATRIX, THE MATRIX RELOADED) original score to the 2003 conclusion of the famed sci-fi/action THE MATRIX trilogy, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss, and directed by The Wachowski Siblings. Composer Davis closes out one of the most notable sci-fi trilogies in all of filmdom with an astounding original score that is a stunning culmination of his breathtaking MATRIX masterworks. Expanded over two discs, with a running time of over two full hours, this presentation of MATRIX REVOLUTIONS, produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, contains music recorded for, but ultimately unused, in the final film, as well as bonus alternate cues. Film music journalist Tim Greiving takes the listener down the rabbit hole with his exclusive, in-depth liners while Dan Goldwasser’s sharp art design recalls THE MATRIX universe with style. This is a limited edition of 3000 Units.

Goldsmith’s powerful masterpiece comes roaring back to life in this knockout presentation. Meticulously restored by Mike Matessino and remastered by Daniel Hersch from original stereo elements, this high-flying re-issue produced by Nick Redman and Neil S. Bulk features the intended film score on Disc One, and the first-time-ever CD debut of the original LP program on Disc Two, along with bonus tracks that include previously unreleased source music. Liner notes from film music writer Julie Kirgo and track-by-track analysis by writer Jeff Bond round out stellar art design by Jim Titus. A must for all film music enthusiasts! This is a limited edition of 2000 units.


ESCAPE FROM L.A.: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1285
Music by Shirley Walker & John Carpenter
Limited Edition of 1500 Units

La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the remastered and expanded release of Shirley Walker & John Carpenter’s score to the 1996 Paramount Pictures futuristic actioner ESCAPE FROM L.A., starring Kurt Russell, Steve Buscemi and Cliff Robertson, and directed by John Carpenter. When it came time to score his big-budget follow-up to the cult classic ESCAPE FROM N.Y., director/co-writer John Carpenter, who had inventively scored most of his films (HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA), collaborated with the ingenious Shirley Walker (BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, BATMAN MASK OF THE PHANTASM, WILLARD) to create the perfect musical soundscape for the further exploits of Snake Plissken. Building upon Carpenter’s iconic synth template, Walker harness her trademark orchestral power and the result is a full-charging heroic score that takes Plissken to new action-packed heights. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this expanded release boasts a running time of more than 78 minutes and contains cues that were recorded for the film, but never used. Film music writer Daniel Schweiger brings the listener behind the movie and its score with his in-depth liners and the sharp art direction is courtesy of Dan Goldwasser. This is limited edition of 1500 Units.


FLESH + BLOOD: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1293
Music by Basil Poledouris
Limited Edition of 1200 Units

La-La Land Records and MGM present the remastered re-issue of renowned composer Basil Poledouris’ (CONAN THE BARBARIAN, ROBOCOP, THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER) original motion picture score to the 1985 medieval-set action/drama FLESH + BLOOD, starring Rutger Hauer, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Thompson, and directed by Paul Verhoeven. Considered to be one of his best works, Poledouris’ bold score continues in his CONAN tradition – and it’s an absolute powerhouse! Essentially, a release for those who weren’t fortunate enough to obtain it previously, this re-issue produced by Ford A. Thaxton and remastered by James Nelson, is a must-have for any film music enthusiast who missed out on grabbing it. Film music writer Randall Larson eschews re-counting ground already covered extensively in previous editions of the soundtrack and instead focuses on an interview he and David Kraft conducted with Poledouris, in the composer’s home, on May 19, 1985. To our knowledge, this is the only detailed, contemporary interview Poledouris gave on this score and much of this lengthy conversation had remained unpublished… until now. Majestic art direction by Mark Banning rounds out this exciting presentation. This is a Limited Edition of 1200 Units.

I think that's Elfman's action scoring for the footage of drone attacks in the documentary.

I am super pumped for the Unknown Known. I was really looking forward to Glass' Visitors score as I am a big fan of the Qatsi scores. Visitors was a real disappointment, but the Unknown Known sounds like it's going to satisfy my craving for a good Glassian documentary score. Elfman's S.O.P. is also pretty great. Definitely nice to see Elfman breaking away from the animated fare and stretching himself.

Chris.
