Next week's new CDs from Intrada are the first-ever release of Bill Conti's score for the 1991 football comedy NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, and a new release of Laurence Rosenthal's score for the 1979 sci-fi disaster epic METEOR, teaming Sean Connery and Natalie Wood.

The latest release from Kritzerland is a remastered edition of the Biblical epic DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS, the sequel to The Robe, for which Franz Waxman composed the score incorporating material from Alfred Newman's classic Robe score.

Buysoundtrax has announced two upcoming CDs -- THE RUNNER STUMBLES, featuring Ernest Gold's score for director Stanley Kramer's final film, a period drama about an ill-fated romance between a priest (Dick Van Dyke) and a nun (Kathleen Quinlan), previously released only as a composer promo LP; and a disc featuring re-recordings of two scores for "true" alien stories -- Elliot Goldenthal's ROSWELL and Eric Clapton's COMMUNION.

On March 4, Varese Sarabande will release the soundtrack to the sci-fi thriller AFTER THE DARK (aka The Philosophers), featuring the score by Nicholas O'Toole and Jonathan Davis (Queen of the Damned), as well as additional cues by Glen Phillips from the band Toad the Wet Sprocket.

In a surprising development, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that they are rescinding the nomination for the title song for the period drama ALONE YET NOT ALONE, music by Bruce Broughton and lyric by Dennis Spiegel.

According to the press release, "The decision was prompted by the discovery that Broughton, a former Governor and current Music Branch executive committee member, had emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period. 'No matter how well-intentioned the communication, using one’s position as a former governor and current executive committee member to personally promote one’s own Oscar submission creates the appearance of an unfair advantage,' said Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Academy President. The Board determined that Broughton’s actions were inconsistent with the Academy’s promotional regulations, which provide, among other terms, that 'it is the Academy's goal to ensure that the Awards competition is conducted in a fair and ethical manner. If any campaign activity is determined by the Board of Governors to work in opposition to that goal, whether or not anticipated by these regulations, the Board of Governors may take any corrective actions or assess any penalties that in its discretion it deems necessary to protect the reputation and integrity of the awards process.'”

The announcement also made clear that a fifth song will not be added to fill out the category, leaving only the four remaining songs. 

Thomas Newman won the Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for SKYFALL, while Adele Adkins and Paul Epworth won the award for Best Song Written for Visual Media for the film's title song, which means the Grammys will be no help in predicting this year's music Oscars. The soundtrack for the music documentary SOUND CITY won the award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.

Composer Peter Bernstein will be conducting the Golden State Pops Orchestra in an event celebrating his late father on Saturday, February 15 at 8 p.m. GREAT COMPOSER TRIBUTE: ELMER BERNSTEIN will feature music from many of the composer's most acclaimed scores such as Far from Heaven, The Magnificent Seven, The Ten Commandments and To Kill a Mockingbird, as well as a new suite featuring music from many of his popular comedy scores such as Ghostbusters, Stripes, and National Lampoon's Animal House.

At noon on Saturday, February 8, Creature Features in Burbank plans to have composers Kristopher Carter, Michael McCustion and Lolita Ritmanis on hand to autograph copies of La-La Land's new CD sets BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD and SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.
