Varese Sarabande has announced three new CD Club releases -- a greatly expanded Deluxe Edition of Leonard Rosenman's score for the 1990 sequel ROBOCOP 2 ("Ro-bo-cop...."); a two-disc Deluxe Edition of James Newton Howard's score for the Stephen King sci-fi/horror movie DREAMCATCHER (previously released as part of Varese's Stephen King boxed set); and an Encore Edition of one of the label's earliest -- and longest out-of-print -- Club releases, Jerry Goldsmith's charming score for the period drama RAGGEDY MAN (which is already out of stock from most sellers).


The latest CD from La-La Land is a remastered and slightly expanded release of James Horner's lively score for the sci-fi-tinged 1987 thriller PROJECT X, starring Matthew Broderick as a young Air Force pilot who becomes part of a government experiment involving chimpanzees.

La-La Land has two new soundtrack releases this week.

One release pairs two mystery-thriller scores by Jerry Goldsmith. ARCHER was the short-lived TV series version of Ross MacDonald's acclaimed "Lew Archer" mystery novels, and the LLL CD features the first-release of Goldsmith's music for the series, totaling 19 minutes. The CD also features Goldsmith's score for the 1967 thriller WARNING SHOT; La-La Land had previously released this score on CD, but the new release features improved sound and additional music (but does not feature the Si Zietner re-recorded LP tracks).

Their other new release is a three-disc set of John Williams' beloved score for the 1978 superhero classic SUPERMAN, remastered with improved sound from the first generation recording masters. Discs One and Two feature the original score plus alternates, while Disc Three features the original LP sequencing, also remastered.


Varese Sarabande is releasing a limited edition (500 units) two-disc set of Jeff Beal's music for the sixth and final season of HOUSE OF CARDS.


BAFTA's award for Original Music for a motion picture went to A STAR IS BORN, for Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Lukas Nelson (the other four nominees were all for original scores which received Oscar nominations this year).


Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.
