The latest release from Intrada is a two-disc set of the 1990 Chuck Norris action sequel DELTA FORCE 2, with music by Frederic Talgorn (Fortress, Robot Jox, The Temp), featuring both the complete score as well as the original soundtrack sequencing, which divided the score into orchestral and electronic suites.

Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.


The recent decision of the mainstream CD labels to change their weekly release dates from Tuesdays to Fridays has made it tougher to present an accurate list of new releases each Friday. I try to double-check each Thursday to make sure that the schedule of release in my Friday column is up to date, but unfortunately sometimes it won't become clear that a CD isn't actually getting released until after the fact.

So despite the fact that Lakeshore Records has been remarkably prolific with score CD releases in the last few years, some of the releases they have announced -- Pawn Sacrifice (Howard), Elvis & Nixon (Shearmur), Zoolander 2 (Shapiro) -- were seemingly canceled at the very last minute, so I apologize for mistakenly including them in the CDS AVAILABLE THIS WEEK section of this column. (though Amazon now claims that Elvis & Nixon will still be coming out -- on May 5th of next year).

On the hand, some other Lakeshore releases (specifically Portman's Dolphin Tale 2) are merely difficult to find, while sometimes I've been able to find used/cutout copies of other ones (A Hologram for the King, The Young Messiah) even before their official release dates).

With Varese CDs, I wait until they are announced on the Varese site, since ostensible Varese releases keep popping up on Amazon long before they are actually released -- Ray Donovan only just came out, Jesse Stone: The Ultimate Collection got moved back again, to August 5, and it's been years since Amazon first listed a Varese soundtrack for HBO's The Newsroom, with no actual CD in sight.

Last week's new release from Intrada is a two-disc set featuring James Horner's rousing music for the 1991 pulp adventure movie THE ROCKETEER, with both the complete, expanded score as well as the original CD sequencing.

The label plans to release one new CD next week.


The latest release from La-La Land is a reissue of the two-disc remastered edition of John Debney's old fashioned symphonic score for the lavish 1995 pirate swashbuckler CUTTHROAT ISLAND. It is expected to begin shipping next week.


The latest release from Kritzerland is of unusual historical importance  -- the unused score for the 1971 drug addiction drama THE PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK, which gave Al Pacino his first starring role. The film was ultimately released with no score, but an original score was actually composed and recorded for the film by none other than Ned Rorem, the acclaimed concert composer and equally acclaimed memoirist.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is inviting a record 683 actors, filmmakers, executives and publicists to join their membership, including the following prospective music branch members: score composers Lesley Barber, Wendy Blackstone, Kathryn Bostic, Carl Davis, Fitzgerald Diggs (RZA), Germaine Franco, Peter Golub, Deborah Lurie, Heather McIntosh, Marcus Miller, Antonio Pinto, Raphael Saadiq, Joseph Trapanese, Shigeru Umebayashi, Fernando Velazquez and Marcelo Zarvos; songwriters Mary J. Blige, Sia Furler, Taura Stinson and Will.i.am; and music editors Joseph S. DeBeasi, Joanie Diener, Amanda Goodpaster, Tanya Noel Hill, Jim Schultz and Del Spiva.

Intrada's one new release this week is a remastered edition of an earlier Special Collection release, Henry Mancini's typically charming score for the smash hit 1976 comedy-thriller SILVER STREAK. Because of damage to the original tapes, Intrada' s original Silver Streak was a mixture of stereo and mono cues, but thanks to advances in restoration, their new edition presents the score entirely in stereo.

Intrada has announced two new releases this week: a two-disc set featuring the scores for the first three films in the low-budget time travel thriller series TRANCERS, with the first and second films scored by Phil Davies and Mark Ryder, and the third scored by Richard Band; and a compilation of surviving score tracks for Paramount films composed by Miklos Rozsa, including 33 minutes from FIVE GRAVES  TO CAIRO, the World War II adventure that was his first project with longtime collaborator Billy Wilder, and 17 minutes from the 1943 World War II romance SO PROUDLY WE HAIL!, which earned four Oscar nominations including one for supporting actress Paulette Goddard, as well as cues from The Hour Before Dawn, The Man in Half Moon Street, and The Woman of the Town

Varese Sarabande has announced their latest batch of limited edition CDs of contemporary film music, which are expcted to begin shipping next week -- the soundtrack to the direct-to-video animated sequel OPEN SEASON: SCARED SILLY, scored by Rupert Gregson-Williams and Dominic Lewis; the score for the drama OF MIND AND MUSIC, composed by Carlos Joe Alvarez (Deadline); and two CDs of film music from composers featured at the last two KRAKOW MUSIC FESTIVALS, in 2015 and 2016, featuring mostly previously released music.
