  • Tech Talk From The Producer…

    Both this world premiere release of David Newman’s score for Paradise and the release of Robert Folk’s score for Can’t Buy Me Love were transferred from the original two-track stereo session mixes retained by the composers. The cues included appear in the order they were intended for each picture.

    Paradise features rich Americana writing with an emphasis on transparent ideas and dramatic melodies. Can’t Buy Me Love plays in contrast with an emphasis on breezy melodic lines with hints of subtle dramatic content.

    Enjoy now two rewarding scores focusing on melody from two veterans of the movie scoring craft.
