Release News: They’re Here

with 2 comments

A quick bit of release news for you: a classic rock title already set up for pre-order, and a pair of popular film composers with reissues in the works.

  • Hip-O Select is taking orders for Chuck Berry’s Have Mercy: His Complete Chess Recordings 1969-1974. The four-disc set is the third and final such set of Berry’s recordings for the legendary label and features 22 unreleased tracks. Find it here.
  • Legendary soundtrack catalogue label Film Score Monthly has quite a new release: the complete score to the 1977 film Black Sunday, composed and conducted by John Williams. It was, to date, the most recent score of Williams’ (whose credits also include Jaws, Star Wars, and the Indiana Jones films) to never see a release. As with most soundtrack releases (due to union regulations), it’s a limited pressing, but it’s a more generous amount than usual at 10,000 copies. More info is here.
  • FSM also dropped a big name recently. Label founder Lukas Kendall confirmed that in 2010 the label would put out a new expanded release of Jerry Goldsmith’s score to Poltergeist. The set will feature the complete score, newly remastered from the original source elements by veteran score producer Mike Matessino, as well as a bonus disc of alternate takes and the original LP program as it was released by Polygram in 1982. (For interested collectors, Rhino did release a slightly expanded version of that LP in 1997.)
