AN OFFER YOU CAN'T REFUSE...

5TH AND FINAL RELEASE...

THE GODFATHER: 50th ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION (2-CD SET)
LLLCD 1610
Music by Nino Rota

Limited Edition of 5000 Units
RETAIL PRICE: $29.98

ORDERS BEGIN TUESDAY NOVEMBER 29, 2022 AT 12 PM PST

La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Geffen Records proudly present a remastered and expanded Limited Edition 2-CD release of acclaimed composer Nino Rota’s (8 1/2, LA DOLCE VITA, WAR AND PEACE) original motion picture score to the 1972 Academy Award-winning masterpiece THE GODFATHER starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and Diane Keaton, and directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

This deluxe release of Nino Rota’s iconic masterwork marks the 50th Anniversary of the classic film and its score, both of which have woven themselves deeply into the fabric of our culture. The music is a dramatic and emotional wonder – deeply soulful and romantic, yet tragic and teaming with pathos. The score’s waltz and love theme have both joined the pantheon of the most universally recognizable movie themes in history.

Produced by Dan Goldwasser and Neil S. Bulk, mixed by Chris Malone and mastered by Doug Schwartz from studio vault elements, this 2-CD release includes previously unreleased and unused music and has been approved by Francis Ford Coppola and American Zoetrope. Disc One showcases the film’s expanded score presentation along with additional and alternate cues, while Disc Two presents the remastered Original Soundtrack Album and Bonus Tracks that showcase music by Carmine Coppola, as well the songs “I Have But One Heart” and “Manhattan Serenade.” The exclusive, in-depth liner notes are by writer Tim Greiving and the sharp art design is by Dan Goldwasser.

Limited to 5000 units, this simply put, is a soundtrack release “you can’t refuse!”

This is, without a doubt, a holy grail (and the only title I'm interested in from the lot).

Can't wait for the other 2 as well.

This isn't personal. It's strictly business.

I'll make it my business to buy this one.

Not my favorite mainly because the movie seemed to track so much of the main theme, but as a testament to LLL's high level of quality this is still an instant buy for me too. Great music to study and there are some gems in there that haven't been heard. Will be fascinating to hear music that would have been intended for the film. Great job!

wow, a great surprise! Great that the label is interested in Nino Rota (I thought this would have been Quartet Records).
