La-La Land has announced five end-of-year "Black Friday" releases which are now available to order -- a three-disc "Ultimate Edition" of John Williams' popular score for Steven Spielberg's 1991 fantasy HOOK, featuring Williams' Oscar-nominated song "When You're Alone"; a two-disc edition of James Horner's rousing swashbuckler score for the 1998 hit THE MASK OF ZORRO; a two-disc edition of another Horner favorite, his catchy score for the caper comedy-thriller SNEAKERS, featuring both the score as heard in the film and the soundtrack release sequencing; a remastered and expanded edition of Maurice Jarre's score for one of Alfred Hitchcock's final films, the international spy thriller TOPAZ; and the first ever release of Henry Mancini's score for the 1966 romantic thriller MOMENT TO MOMENT, starring Jean Seberg and Honor Blackman and directed by Golden Age great Mervyn LeRoy (Anthony Adverse, Quo Vadis, The Bad Seed).

Varese Sarabande is expected to announce their final CD Club release(s) of the year today.

The latest release from Intrada is an expanded, remastered two-disc edition of one of James Horner's very first feature film scores, for producer Roger Corman's 1980 Seven-Samurai-in-space BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, a lively musical homage to the tradition of Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams which almost certainly earned Horner his breakout assignment scoring Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan two years later. Disc One features the full score, more than an hour of music, and Disc Two features the original LP sequencing.

The latest releases from Quartet are a remastered edition of Michael J. Lewis' score for the 1973 dark comedy horror film THEATRE OF BLOOD, starring Vincent Price, Diana Rigg and a supporting cast of top Briitish talent; and a 30th anniversary re-release of the two-disc edition of Trevor Jones' popular score for the 1993 action hit CLIFFHANGER.

The Recording Academy has announced the nominations for this year’s Grammys, including the following film music-related categories:

The label is currently planning to release at least five titles on November 24th, aka "Black Friday."
