New for this coming week are two pretty big releases, both expanded and remastered editions of great James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith albums. The Land Before Time includes both major cues Horner dropped from the original MCA release, totaling 15 minutes of new music. The Last Castle offers the complete score plus alternates, and remains one of my Goldsmith favorites: military all the way, Malcolm McNab’s solo trumpet in the spotlight. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be posted here early in the week.
Coming up on our calendar will be the CD release to the Netflix/Paramount mystery television series, The Haunting Of Bly Manor, composed by The Newton Brothers, composers of the preceding show, The Haunting Of Hill House. Scored for full string orchestra plus prominent piano throughout, the music is haunting of course but with a rich meld of nostalgia and warmth within. Watch here for artwork, contents and audio samples. Orders can be placed early this week with CDs due for shipping soon.
Thank you all for making our re-visit to Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves a resounding success. It is a masterful work and having all of that additional music sure drives it all home! So this coming Tuesday we again introduce another expanded masterpiece, this time from the peerless John Williams. With director Steven Spielberg, author H.G. Wells, star Tom Cruise and the title War Of The Worlds, and in this case a 2-CD set fully expanded - well, you can anticipate the excitement is warranted. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be posted here late Monday afternoon with orders shipping on Tuesday the 6th. Play this one loud.
