THE MECHANIC: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1191
Music by Jerry Fielding
Limited Edition of 1200 Units






ORDER “THE MECHANIC: LIMITED EDITION” on Feb 28 (1pm PST) at www.lalalandrecords.com

STARTS SHIPPING FEB 28
RETAIL PRICE $19.98

La-La Land Records presents composer Jerry Fielding’s (STRAW DOGS, THE ENFORCER, THE GAUNTLET, SEMI-TOUGH) classic original action score to the legendary 1972 MGM action-thriller THE MECHANIC, starring Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent and directed by Michael Winner. An atmospheric marvel of sonic textures and experimental approaches, Fielding’s chilling score truly is the stone-cold-heart of this classic hitman/apprentice tale. Aside from perfectly capturing action and suspense, Fielding’s score gives the film a depth and resonance beyond its celluloid. Aside from some audio enhancements, a slightly different track order and new packaging and liner notes, the audio content is the same as the Intrada release, so this re-issue is geared for fans who do not currently own that previous release. Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and mastered by James Nelson, this release features in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer Randall D. Larson. This is a limited edition of 1200 units.

JENNIFER 8: LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET) LLLCD 1198
Music by Christopher Young and Maurice Jarre
Limited Edition of 2000 Units





ORDER “JENNIFER 8: LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET)” on Feb 28 (1pm PST) at www.lalalandrecords.com

STARTS SHIPPING FEB 28
RETAIL PRICE $24.98

La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures presents a special 2-CD SET of two original scores to the 1992 Paramount Pictures motion picture thriller JENNIFER 8, starring Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman, and Lance Henriksen and written and directed by Bruce Robinson. Disc One features acclaimed composer Christopher Young’s (HELLRAISER, RUNAWAY JURY, THE CORE, DRAG ME TO HELL) original score – considered to be the composer’s breakthrough work in terms of scoring films for major studios. For this release, Young has re-visited his career-making score and has provided a new, magnificent 48 minute assembly – creating the ultimate presentation of his haunting and beautiful work, a melodic and atmospheric score that injects the film with suspense and human emotion. Disc Two presents renowned composer Maurice Jarre’s (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, THE PROFESSIONALS, GHOST, A WALK IN THE CLOUDS) unused original score to the same film. Jarre scored about 75% of the film before his music was replaced with Young’s score. About 40 minutes of Jarre’s score is presented here and fans will be delighted to finally have this previously unreleased work, which is in the vein of his music for WITNESS and GHOST. In total, this release is a fascinating look at two different scoring approaches by two immensely talented composers. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this limited edition release of 2000 Units includes in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond.

PLANET OF THE APES: LIMITED EDITION (3-CD SET) LLLCD 1193
Music by Danny Elfman
Limited Edition of 3500 Units

La-La Land Records, 20th Century Fox and Sony Music present the remastered and expanded version of acclaimed composer Danny Elfman’s (BATMAN, BATMAN RETURNS, MARS ATTACKS!, WANTED, ALICE IN WONDERLAND) thunderous original score to Twentieth Century Fox’s 2001 blockbuster sci-fi adventure PLANET OF THE APES, starring Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, Helena Bonham Carter and Michael Clarke Duncan, and directed by Tim Burton. The now legendary pairing of director Tim Burton and Danny Elfman again yields an immensely creative and complex film score that melds orchestra, percussion and electronics to enrich the film’s subtext and characters, all the while propelling its large-scale action. Featuring OVER 212 MINUTES of music, this comprehensive 3-CD SET set is the definitive release of Elfman’s APES score – Discs One and Two contain the film version of the score, with source cues and alternates, while Disc Three features the original 2001 soundtrack album assembly, including the RULE THE PLANET remix by Paul Oakenfold. Produced by Nick Redman, restored by Mike Matessino and edited and mastered by Daniel Hersch at d2 Mastering, this significantly expanded limited edition release of 3500 units also features exclusive liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond.

A WALK IN THE CLOUDS: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1199
Music by Maurice Jarre
Limited Edition of 2000 Units

La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox presents the remastered and expanded release of renowned composer Maurice Jarre’s (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, THE PROFESSIONALS, WITNESS, ENEMY MINE) sumptuously romantic score to 20th Century Fox’s 1995 post WWII-era drama A WALK IN THE CLOUDS, starring Keanu Reeves and Anthony Quinn and directed by Alfonso Arau. Composer Jarre’s lush and heartwarming orchestral score, full of sweeping and colorful themes, perfectly compliments cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki’s breathtaking imagery, while also harnessing the film’s deeply felt emotions and romantic plot, set against a post WWII Napa Valley vineyard. At 72 minutes, this expanded release nearly doubles the length of this score’s previous soundtrack releases. Produced by Nick Redman and Mike Matessino and mixed and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special limited edition release of 2000 units includes alternate cues and source music and also features exclusive liner notes by film music writer Julie Kirgo.

BATMAN FOREVER: LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET) LLLCD 1189
Music by Elliot Goldenthal
Limited Edition of 3500 Units

Presenting the latest release in our Expanded Archival Collection, renowned composer Elliot Goldenthal’s (ALIEN 3, DEMOLITION MAN, HEAT, A TIME TO KILL) original score to the 1995 WARNER BROS. blockbuster film BATMAN FOREVER, starring Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman, directed by Joel Schumacher. Goldenthal’s robust orchestral score honors The Caped Crusader with a powerful theme that is pitch perfect whether appearing as a stalwart march or brooding character study. The rest of the score follows suit, effectively supporting the film’s array of characters and large-scale action with complex, memorable themes and motifs. This remastered release has been radically expanded, more than doubling the running time of the original 1995 score soundtrack release. (The remastered 1995 score album is presented here as well). Produced and supervised by Elliot Goldenthal, produced for La-La Land Records by Neil S. Bulk and Dan Goldwasser, and mastered by James Nelson, this 2-CD limited edition release features exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer John Takis and is a must-have for any film-music enthusiast. This is a Limited Edition of 3500 Units.

SCROOGED: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1195
Music by Danny Elfman
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records and Universal Music present the world premiere release of acclaimed composer Danny Elfman’s (BATMAN, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, WANTED, ALICE IN WONDERLAND) original score to Paramount Pictures’ 1988 holiday comedy SCROOGED, starring Bill Murray, Karen Allen, David Johansen and Bobcat Goldthwait, and directed by Richard Donner. An important score in Elfman’s cannon, SCROOGED was the composer’s first big-budget Hollywood score – and one that clearly anticipates his next, and most iconic work, BATMAN. For this wickedly funny and inventive update of the immortal Dickens Christmas classic, Elfman fashions a robust, sophisticated musical tapestry that expertly weaves together the film’s varied tones, which runs the gambit from wildly broad comedy and holiday cheer to gothic horror and emotional drama. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special release features bonus tracks, source cues and exclusive liner notes from film music writer Jeff Bond, with new comments from Director Richard Donner and others. This is a limited edition release of 3000 Units.

FAT MAN AND LITTLE BOY: LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET) LLLCD 1196
Music by Ennio Morricone
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records presents the world premiere release of acclaimed composer Ennio Morricone’s (THE MAN WITH NO NAME TRILOGY, THE THING, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, THE MISSION, THE UNTOUCHABLES) original score to Paramount Pictures’ 1989 docudrama FAT MAN AND LITTLE BOY, starring Paul Newman, Dwight Schultz and John Cusack, and directed by Roland Joffe. Never before released in any format, Mr. Morricone’s hauntingly beautiful and complex orchestral score receives a definitive, 2-CD treatment that demonstrates the composer’s notable skill in emotionally interpreting what is at once an amazing and tragic chapter in mankind’s history – the birth of the atom bomb. Full of dramatic suspense, passion, sadness and gravitas, this is a notable, major Hollywood work by Morricone that is ripe for discovery – especially since some of it has never before been heard, as several cues and portions of others were dropped from the final cut of the film. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special 2-CD release includes source cues, alternates and exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Daniel Schweiger. This is a limited edition of 3000 units.

Just purchased SPEED, this is awesome! The improved sound is going to be amazing.

I wasn't really in this to get any unreleased cues although that's always a bonus. Most of the score was released anyways, but the main part of this was to finally get an official better sounding release, can't wait for this to get in!

As badly as I want The Mechanic and Speed, I blew the rest of my cash for this month on FSM's Star Trek TNG box, so they'll have to wait if they can. If either of them sell fast, I'm going to have to order at SAE along with a pre-order item so that I'm not charged until mid-March.

Listening to Jennifer 8 samples now. Nice to see that Speed 2 has less than 200, btw!

Ordered Jennifer 8, Speed, Speed 2 and Broken Arrow. It's a good day - especially since Jennifer 8 is perhaps my favorite Christoper Young score.

Listening to the samples, the one that grabs me most is Jennifer 8 (a movie and score I have never heard of) but not sure about Speed (I have Speed 2 which is okay, but love Twister and American Outlaws).

Some tempting stuff in the sale too. Oh decisions.
