From La-La Land: "La-La Land Records presents the world premiere release of acclaimed composer Ennio Morricone's (THE MAN WITH NO NAME TRILOGY, THE THING, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, THE MISSION, THE UNTOUCHABLES) original score to Paramount Pictures' 1989 docudrama FAT MAN AND LITTLE BOY, starring Paul Newman, Dwight Schultz and John Cusack, and directed by Roland Joffe. Never before released in any format, Mr. Morricone's hauntingly beautiful and complex orchestral score receives a definitive, 2-CD treatment that demonstrates the composer's notable skill in emotionally interpreting what is at once an amazing and tragic chapter in mankind's history the birth of the atom bomb. Full of dramatic suspense, paassion, sadness and gravitas, this is a notable, major Hollywood work by Morricone that is ripe for discovery especially since some of it hass never before been heard, as several cues and portions of others were dropped from the final cut of the film. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special 2-CD release includes source cues, alternates and exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Daniel Schweiger."
