Soundtrack Corner: Intrada Offers More “Galactica,” La-La Land’s “Friday the 13th” Available on Its Own

leave a comment »

This week and next see a trio of great film and television scores coming to CD from Intrada and La-La Land Records.

First up, it’s the long-anticipated third volume of Stu Phillips’ music to Battlestar Galactica from Intrada. While the previous two volumes were devoted to only three episodes of the series in total, subsequent installments of BSG largely eschewed new scores for previously-recorded cues tracked into the soundtrack. But Phillips was on hand to compose music for seven more BSG episodes, as well as one for the short-lived Galactica: 1980 spin-off series (essentially a scaled-down sequel to the original show, brought about when ABC received a then-unheard-of amount of letters protesting the series’ cancellation). Volume 3 of BSG is sourced from the original sources in the Universal Studios vaults (a combination of mono and stereo cues) and is available as a limited edition title now.

Intrada’s also got a premiere release out from underrated composer Jerome Moross. Moross was perhaps best known for his score to the 1958 Western The Big Country, for which he received an Oscar nomination, and the theme to the series Wagon Train used between the third and eighth seasons of that program. That theme was in fact adapted from the score Intrada’s putting out now: The Jayhawkers. Set in pre-Civil War Kansas, this 1959 Western, starring Jeff Chandler and a post-Davy Crockett, pre-Daniel Boone Fess Parker, had a score which combined the grandiosity of The Big Country with the psychological intensity of The Proud Rebel, Moross’ third Western score from this period. This release is presented almost entirely in stereo from the original three-track masters at Paramount and shines a deserved light on a hard-working, evocative creator of film themes.

Finally, La-La Land has one killer release for this coming Tuesday: a standalone issue of the score to Friday the 13th by Harry Manifredi. The composer’s scores to the first six tales of Jason Voorhees and his insatiable quest to kill camp counselors were given premiere CD releases by La-La Land as part of a limited edition box set at the beginning of the year, but now fans can enjoy the first in the series on its own, from the same master and featuring the relevant portions of the liner notes booklet. The composer will autograph the first 100 copies bought directly from the label, so if you’re interested, head to the LLL site on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Pacific time!

Order Intrada’s batch and reacquaint yourself with the Friday the 13th track list after the jump!
