Press Release from Notefornote Music:
Notefornote Music is offering MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE as a single CD "Standard edition.", at a lower price without all the bells and whistles of the previous release.
"I Have The Power!"
He-Man and the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE made their retail debut in 1982 as executives at Mattel wanted their own line of action figures to compete with Kenner's blockbuster STAR WARS toys. MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE went on to huge success in the 80s and spawned comics, a cartoon series and a movie produced by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus for their company Cannon Group. Released in 1987, the film stars Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella. It would go on to become a cult classic and notably became one of Cannon's last films. Featuring a blockbuster score by Bill Conti (ROCKY, THE KARATE KID, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY), we are proud to offer this standard edition reissue with an additional 500 units for fans who have asked us to make it available again.
This new release of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE is a mixture of listening to fan requests as well as celebrating our 2-LP set which is coming out in November. There is a whole new generation of fans collecting the toys and watching the old cartoon series. A new film is currently in production for a 2021 release and should create major excitement with fans. This is a great opportunity for new fans (and old ones who missed out on previous releases!) to pick up this soundtrack and enjoy what we feel is one of Bill Conti's best scores. Get them while they last!
