Soundtrack Miracles and More

leave a comment »

A heads-up for two brand-new releases from indie soundtrack label Intrada. This week’s batch is quite eclectic: first up is Laurence Rosenthal’s score to the classic 1962 film version of The Miracle Worker, available for the first time on CD. This disc is sourced from Rosenthal’s own first-generation mono 1/4″ tapes and produced with full support from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the film’s distributor. This is a limited one at just 1,000 copies, so act fast.

Intrada’s other release turns to the small screen with a popular television drama from the recent past: JAG. Created by T.V. legend Donald P. Bellisario (Magnum P.I., Quantum Leap, JAG spin-off NCIS), the long-running legal drama about members of the military’s legal eagles (the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, or JAG for short) has two episodes presented on one disc. There’s the original pilot episode, scored by Bruce Broughton (who composed the series’ memorable theme), and the score to second-season episode “Cowboys and Cossacks,” written by Steve Bramson. This set is an unlimited release.

As always, you can preview clips of the scores and order them at Intrada’s official site. Take a look at the track listings after the jump!
