leave a comment »

  • Well, here’s a nice surprise. Following their masterfully-done expansion of James Horner’s score to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan last year, Film Score Monthly presents a double-disc reissue of Horner’s Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The unlimited set includes the complete score on one disc and the original LP presentation on the other.
  • Intrada’s announced some new titles as well. Les Baxter’s score to The Beast Within and Henry Mancini’s jazzy soundtrack to 99 and 44/100% Dead!, both new entries in the Special Collection Series, are available for order at 1,000 and 1,200 copies apiece.
  • Finally, Varese Sarabande has set next Monday, May 31, as the date for “a single, special CD Club release.” Word on the street is that it may finally be the long-awaited expansion of Alex North’s Spartacus.

Hit the jump for track lists for all these great titles.
