The latest release from Intrada presents the original LP tracks from the 1963 comedy PALM SPRINGS WEEKEND, starring Troy Donahue, Connie Stevens, Stefanie Powers and Robert Conrad, including songs from the film (with one performed by Conrad himself) as well as score cues composed by Frank Perkins, a 1962 Oscar nominee for his adaptation of Gypsy's score.


The latest release from Kritzerland features the original LP tracks from the 1976 teen romance ODE TO BILLY JOE, based on the classic Bobbie Gentry song. The film, starring Glynnis O'Connor and Robby Benson, reteamed Summer of '42 screenwriter Herman Raucher with its Oscar-winning composer, Michel Legrand, and the Kritzerland CD features Legrand's original score cues plus the title song and source music.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

JOY - West Dylan Thordson, David Campbell

"Music also plays a major role in 'Joy,' both from a score perspective -- via the orchestral work of David Campbell (Beck’s arranger father) and the guitar drones of West Dylan Thordson -- and from the vibrant soundtrack that practically drives the film. Songs from Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra cut back the more wondrous moments of the film, while the Rolling Stones, Cream, Neil Young, and more traditional ‘60s and ‘70s rock contributes a swagger and verve underscoring Joy’s belated confidence."
 
Rodrigo Perez, IndieWire
 
"Toward the middle of the film, Joy leaves her family to work on selling her mop via a new outlet: the budding QVC cable channel, presided over by an executive played by Bradley Cooper. It's the second reunion for Lawrence, Cooper, and De Niro; all three starred in Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook,' and De Niro joined Lawrence and Cooper in 'American Hustle' for an uncredited cameo. But Cooper's appearance enlivens the film considerably for reasons that have nothing to do with the trio's history. Once Joy steps behind the scenes at QVC, she's suddenly in an entirely different and far more lively film. The editing speeds up, Danny Elfman's [sic] score becomes upbeat and antic, and the soap opera bathos is replaced with game show energy. Cooper's performance isn't any quieter or more layered than the others, but his full-charge-ahead intensity is aimed at testing Joy rather than shredding her confidence."
 
Tasha Robinson, The Verge

"West Dylan Thordson and David Campbell's punchy score is complemented by some sharply chosen musical samplings, which only partially papers over the pic's many jumpy and abrupt transitions as it lurches through the years and the characters' wildly changing life circumstances."
 
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
