A day after Thanksgiving, and if you celebrate the holiday, you should probably feel pretty stuffed just like the turkeys at the center of the attention. And hopefully you avoided travel if possible! Next week our Ivanhoe makes a new appearance. And we continue to bring back titles that have been out of stock for awhile. So with thanks to all of you listeners and supporters of this cool music, we’ve been staying busy indoors… and safe.
In addition to this week’s newest CD releases of Species II and The Haunting Of Bly Manor, listeners may want to check in on a number of titles that are finally returning after having been out of stock for awhile. We have several titles being re-pressed now, including some best-sellers, so an item you may have been waiting for could be amongst these… unless you are fortunate enough to already have everything.
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.
