Press Release from Music Box:
In collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, Music Box Records presents the CD premiere of complete score for erotic classic The Story of O - Part 2 (Histoire d'O, numéro 2, 1984) by Stanley Myers with additional music by Hans Zimmer.
The sequel to the erotic classic Histoire d'O (previously released by Music Box Records) went in a different direction than its predecessor. Directed by Éric Rochat, the sequel stars Sandra Wey as the now sexually more promiscuous O, now tasked with wrecking havoc in the family of a rich industrialist. Corruption and betrayal make her assignment all the more easier.
The melodic pop hybrid score by Stanley Myers is organized around a theme song and its several variations. Three cues are credited to Myers' assistant at the time, Hans Zimmer. The original LP release featured completely different mixes of the cues with the Zimmer cues having the most obvious changes. The 2-CD edition features the original LP program on Disc 1, with the film version of the cues in chronological order on Disc 2. This present 2-CD edition has been carefully restored and remastered by Christophe Hénault from the original LP master tape and the recording session elements.
Lavishly illustrated booklet features liner notes by Gergely Hubai, discussing the film, the composers and the score. This release is limited to 500 units.
