Film Score Friday 12/3/21
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 12/2/2021 - 10:00 PM
Last week La-La Land announced its "Black Friday" batch of five new, end-of-year releases: a three-disc, greatly expanded edition of the soundtrack for director Norman Jewison's 1971 film version of the Broadway classic FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, featuring the songs by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick as well as the arrangements and incidental music by John Williams, which won the maestro the first of his five (to date) Oscars; a two-disc edition of Alfred Newman's beautiful, Oscar-nominated score for George Stevens' 1959 film of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK; the first release of the full score for the love-hate romantic comedy hit LOVE ACTUALLY, composed by Craig Armstrong; a remastered and expanded "Ultimate Cut" edition of Harry Manfredini's score for the original FRIDAY THE 13TH; and an expanded version of Bill Conti's score for the final film in the original Karate Kid series, THE NEXT KARATE KID, starring Hilary Swank in the title role.

Intrada plans to announce an epic release next week.

Varese Sarabande has announced two new Deluxe Edition CD Club releases - a two-disc expansion of the score for David Lynch's classic BLUE VELVET, which re-introduced Angelo Badalamenti to the world of film scoring (he had scored films in the 1970s as Andy Badale); and an expanded version of John Debney's score for the 21st century Christmas perennial ELF, the first of several scores Debney has composed for director Jon Favreau (Zathura, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book).

La-La Land was scheduled to announce their latest batch of Black Friday CD releases today. Since I am currently on vacation, you can probably find up to date information about them on our Message Board.

The latest CD from Intrada features the original LP tracks (originally featured on their Elmer Bernstein: The Ava Collection set) from two early '60s scores by Elmer Bernstein, his masterpiece TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and WALK ON THE WILD SIDE.

La-La Land has announced their October releases, due this week: the fourth volume of their GOLDSMITH AT 20TH series, pairing two aviation-related 70s scores, the Pearl Harbor epic TORA! TORA! TORA! and the sentimental barnstorming drama ACE ELI AND RODGER OF THE SKIES; and a re-release of their expanded edition of John Carpenter and Shirley Walker's score for the 1996 sci-fi sequel, ESCAPE FROM L.A.

Silva has announced an unexpected treat for John Barry fans -- the first-ever commercial release of his only score for director Blake Edwards, for the 1974 romantic spy drama THE TAMARIND SEED, pairing Omar Sharif and Julie Andrews (lthough it's far from being a 007 movie, it does have an unmistakable title sequence by Bond great Maurice Binder, which looks a little like what 007 titles might look like if Bond had a desk job)

The latest Deluxe Edition from the Varese Sarabande CD Club is a two-disc release of Graeme Revell's music for the 1994 cult hit THE CROW, featuring an expanded version of one of the composer's most popular scores.
