La La Land’s New Releases: Monkeying Around and Going to Hell

with one comment

Two semi-obscure scores are coming from La La Land Records today: one’s the music to an primate-oriented family film, the other is an early-’70s rock score.

First up, Miles Goodman’s complete score to Dunston Checks In (1996), the comedy about an orangutan in a fancy hotel. (Seriously.) It’s a nice comedic romp, despite the fact that the source material isn’t quite a classic, and it’ll be a nice little limited edition at 1,200 copies.

The label also has a reissue of the soundtrack to Hell’s Belles, an interesting little 1970 flick involving bikers and action. The score, composed by Les Baxter (whose Beach Blanket Bingo was recently unearthed by La La Land), was previously released on LP; this premiere CD release adds five bonus score tracks. This set also has a 1,200-copy limit.

Order each set here and here, and check out the track lists after the jump.
