In Case You Missed Them: Soundtrack Smashes from La-La Land, FSM

leave a comment »

Our apologies for not getting these titles to you earlier, but there’s been a lot of action on the indie soundtrack label front, with two titles announced by Film Score Monthly late last week and three from La-La Land that went on sale yesterday and are selling briskly.

Over at FSM, the label released Friday a short but powerful score to the film Testament, a 1983 drama featuring Jane Alexander as a mother coping with the fallout from a nuclear blast outside their California suburb. The heartbreaking drama, which also starred rising talent Lukas Haas and had turns by then lesser-known actors Kevin Costner and Rebecca de Mornay, featured a stirring, subdued score by James Horner, composed and conducted with a 10-piece ensemble between the sessions for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The premiere release of this score, recorded onto 1″ 32-track 3M digital master tapes at Walt Disney Studios’ now-defunct scoring Stage A and transferred on one of the world’s remaining 3M multitrack digital machines at Walt Disney Imagineering, is limited to 2,000 copies and sells for $19.95.

The other FSM release is as big as Testament is small: two scores over three discs from Italian composer Piero Piccioni. Piccioni’s style recalls Lalo Schifrin in its blend of traditional Hollywood symphonics and jazz, and the two scores here – 1967’s More Than a Miracle, starring Sophia Loren and Omar Sharif, and 1969’s Kenner – are as action-packed and romantic as they come. The set features a disc of the Kenner score with alternate cues, all complete and in stereo, and two discs’ worth of Miracle, including the complete score, alternates and the original MGM soundtrack LP. There is no limit on this set, priced at a decent $34.95.

Over at La-La Land Records, their three promised releases – the eight-disc Medal of Honor Soundtrack Collection, an expansion of Jerry Goldsmith’s score to First Knight and the DC Showcase scores for Warner Bros. animated DC Universe shorts – have all sold briskly. La-La Land head honcho MV Gerhard posted earlier today that less than 600 of the 2,000 copies of the Medal of Honor box set remained, so we’ll not mince words. Head to the jump to see pre-order links and track information for all these releases!
