Just in time for Mother’s Day, La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of legendary composer Henry Mancini’s (THE PINK PANTHER, A SHOT IN THE DARK, THE GREAT RACE, LIFEFORCE) original score to the 1981 melodramatic cult phenomenon MOMMIE DEAREST, starring Faye Dunaway, Diana Scarwid and Steve Forrest, and directed by Frank Perry.

Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special release, limited to 2000 units, contains the score as heard in the film, source cues, alternates and cues cut from the final film. Liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond take you behind-the-scenes of this cult classic and its music. “Mommie” the film may be “so bad, it’s good,” but Mancini’s score is undeniably great!

ROSEMARY’S BABY: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1210
Music by Christopher Komeda
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records, Universal Music and Paramount Pictures presents Christopher Komeda’s (KNIFE IN THE WATER, THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS) original score to the 1968 Paramount Pictures classic chiller ROSEMARY’S BABY, starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes and Ralph Bellamy and directed by Roman Polanski. Clocking in at over 70 minutes, this special release is the definitive presentation of Komeda’s chilling score, featuring the remastered original soundtrack album, the original film score (mono), source music and bonus tracks. Executive Produced by Lukas Kendall, MV Gerhard and Matt Verboys, Associate Produced by Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this release is limited to 3000 units.

WINGS: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1206
Music by J. S. Zamecnik
Arranged and Orchestrated by Dominik Hauser
Limited Edition of 2000 Units

In honor of Paramount Pictures' 100th Anniversary, La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present J.S. Zamecnik's original score, arranged and orchestrated by Dominik Hauser, to the very first Academy Award for Best Picture, the sensational 1927 WWI-set epic drama/adventure WINGS, starring Clara Bow, Charles 'Buddy' Rogers, Richard Arlen and Gary Cooper, and directed by William A. Wellman. When it was decided to restore the classic WINGS for the studio's centennial, Paramount Pictures commissioned a new arrangement of J.S. Zamecnik's original score (originally played live to picture) to be newly recorded for the film. A prolific composer for films during the silent era, this release marks the very first time that an album’s worth of any Zamecnik score has ever been recorded and released. Hauser brings Zamecnik's original score, rich in dramatic, romantic and action material, (as well as peppered with classical compositions), to life in all of its robust, thematic splendor. This music, much like the film's phenomenal aerial sequences, simply soars to exciting heights. Produced by Dan Goldwasser, with music and album assembly produced by Jeannie Gayle Pool and Dominik Hauser, and mastered by James Nelson, this special release is limited to 2000 units. Jeannie Gayle Pool, who was asked to produce this full score restoration for Paramount, brings you behind the scenes of that process in her in-depth liner notes. What better way to commemorate a historic film restoration than to release a piece of film music history!

GALAXY QUEST: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1208
Music by David Newman
Limited Edition of 3000 Units

La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures presents the premiere official soundtrack release of the original motion picture score to the 1999 Dreamworks sci-fi action/comedy GALAXY QUEST, starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell and directed by Dean Parisot. Acclaimed composer David Newman (SERENITY, SCOOBY DOO, ICE AGE, THE PHANTOM) pulls off an impressive musical feat, employing a comic touch while skillfully supporting the film’s legitimate, considerable sci-fi action and well-drawn character relationships. Newman continues in the rich tradition of the Newman family musical legacy, composing a score that employs big choral passages and wondrous melodic themes. Released previously only as a composer-produced promo CD, this official, longer and remastered edition, produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, sounds stellar and features exclusive liner notes by film music writer Tim Greiving. This is a limited edition of 3000 units.

This is a limited edition of 1000 units.

Music by John Williams
Limited Edition of 5000 Units

Long considered one of the maestro's best scores in collaboration with Mr. Spielberg, this masterwork is finally presented here in a worthy 2-CD release that contains more than 140 mins of music, including bonus alternate and unused cues, greatly expanding the score's original 1991 album assembly with more than 65 minutes of music previously unreleased in any official format. Produced by Didier C. Deutsch and Mark G. Wilder, mastered by Mark G. Wilder and Maria Triana and supervised and approved by John Williams, this expanded reissue features amazing art design by Jim Titus and exclusive, in-depth liners from film music writer Daniel Schweiger.

Music by Alfred Newman
Limited Edition of 2000 Units

La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox proudly present the remastered and expanded 2-CD release of legendary composer Alfred Newman’s (A CERTAIN SMILE, ALL ABOUT EVE, THE EGYPTIAN, AIRPORT) original score to the 20th Century Fox 1953 psychological biblical epic THE ROBE, starring Richard Burton, Jean Simmons and Victor Mature, and directed by Henry Koster. A rich, complex and important work in the Newman cannon, this powerful score injects heart into this film’s large canvas while masterfully propelling its drama and spectacle. Studio head Darryl Zanuck said it best at the time, “I wish I could find some way to tell you that this is the greatest score ever written without sounding like the publicity department – but it is.” Produced by Nick Redman, restored by Mike Matessino and mastered by Daniel Hersch, this remastered and expanded 2-CD SET sounds magnificent, is slightly longer than previous releases and features insightful liner notes from writer Julie Kirgo. This is a limited edition of 2000 units.

THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE: LIMITED EDITION LLLCD 1202
Music by Dimitri Tiomkin
Limited Edition of 2500 Units

Mr. Tiomkin’s Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winning score is among his finest – large in scope, yet uniquely brash and brimming with energy and ornamentation. Remastered from the original ¼ inch LP master tapes in the Sony vaults and expanded with bonus mono cues, this 65 minute presentation is the most definitive, official release of the original THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE score to date. Produced by Didier C. Deutsch and Mark G. Wilder and mastered by Mark G. Wilder, this limited edition release of 2500 units features striking art design by Jim Titus and exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond.

La-La Land Records, in association with 20th Century Fox, is proud to present La-La Land’s 200th soundtrack release – a remastered and expanded edition of Mark Mancina’s (BAD BOYS, TWISTER, SPEED 2, MONEY TRAIN) landmark original score to the 1994 Twentieth Century Fox blockbuster action extravaganza SPEED, starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper and Jeff Daniels, and directed by Jan De Bont. An inseparable component of SPEED’s success, Mancina’s full-throttle, iconic score not only punched the film’s action into overdrive, but it has served as a template for action film scoring ever since. Produced by Nick Redman and Mike Matessino and edited and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special remastered and expanded version of SPEED presents its tracks in film order, includes the end titles song, “Speed” performed by Billy Idol, and features in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer John Takis.

Ordered all three. I was gonna hold off on Sorcery until later but you just had to put that $5 off deal in there didn't you? wink

I highly recommend StarHawk. I was unfamiliar with it, but it's an incredibly rousing and adventurous score. It could accompany a great big action film, at times a western, or science fiction. It's simply epic and highly addictive. I have minimal exposure to video game scores, and it was my first exposure to Lennertz. Color me impressed. Check it out.

StarHawks sounds awesome! Can't wait to hear the whole album - already ordered (nr. 50278), listening to the samples now... smile

This is how Cowboys and Aliens were supposed to sound like!

Ordered all 3. Got hung up with work stuff so am only order #50336, hopefully I still got an autographed copy of Starhawk.

I wonder how long it will take Jane Eyre to sell out?

JANE EYRE is amazing, with what is one of John's best themes. Wish I could afford it, but it's lovely to see it available again.

Man, those Starhawk samples sound so great! I wasn't going to order this yet, but I may give in. Lennertz has done it again - he needs to score some big-budget action flicks, not just family movies and comedies. On a related note, I am anticipating his score to Revolution this fall.

Ordered all 3. Order 50375. Maybe I will snag a signed copy this time. If not, it really is all about the music. I had not heard the msic from Jane Eyre since I watched the film.

Starhawk is OK, but not if you are looking for the quality orchestral writing Lennertz gave us in Warhawk. It has a solid main theme and a decent secondary theme but a lot of the score is fairly blah.

I really don't want to hate on the score but I was quite disappointed by Lennetz' choice to use so much synthesizer, excessive percussion, and electric guitar among other things for what could have been a big orchestral bombast. It is quite a shame because I really like the main theme, and it is used pretty solidly when it appears later in the score.

If you like your music to have plenty of metal guitars, western guitars, harmonicas, tribal percussion, and all that over your orchestra then sure check it out. Fans of Bear McCreary's style of writing in his recent TV and Video Game scores will probably enjoy it as well.

The music is actually composed for something, y'know. All those instruments are used appropriately.

Jane Eyre is on its way to me now. The Dark Crystal deal is not worth passing up, a great score.

The music is actually composed for something, y'know. All those instruments are used appropriately.

I don't doubt his reasons for his choices, as he explained clearly enough in the interview that was posted earlier, but I just want to make sure people are clear with the type of music they are getting. If they like all the instruments used then great, give it a listen and they may enjoy it like others in this thread and friends of mine who love it as well.

I thought the samples for Lennertz's StarHawk sounded great. Give this guy an epic Hollywood movie. Some of his choices in instruments reminded me a bit of Newman's Serenity.
