  2. I've never seen the cover "up close" - just a small CD case-sized photocopy - but it does look interesting. Maybe you could fish it out for when we pop down to Bristol next month?

    TWO GREAT ELMER BERNSTEIN SCORES MAKE THEIR CD DEBUT!

    Kritzerland is proud to present its newest limited edition CD – two rare scores from Elmer Bernstein.

    LAURETTE Music from the play

    Produced in 1960, Laurette starred Judy Holliday, was directed by Jose Quintero, and produced by Alan Pakula. It was a bio-play based on the life of the legendary actress Laurette Taylor. Mr. Bernstein provided a background score for the show, which unfortunately closed out of town before getting to Broadway. The music is pure Elmer and is an interesting transitional score from his bigger and jazzier scores of that era to the type of score he would shortly provide for To Kill A Mockingbird. The scoring is beautiful, delicate, and filled with wonderful melodies.

    PRINCE JACK Original Soundtrack Recording

    Prince Jack was a low-budget film written and directed by Bert Lovitt (adapted from his play), a series of vignettes about the presidency of John F. Kennedy, starring Dana Andrews, Kenneth Mars, Jim Backus, Theodore Bikel, Lloyd Nolan, Robert Guillaime, and others. Originally, there was little budget for any music, and source and library music was going to be used. However, when the film came in under budget, the leftover money was used to hire Elmer Bernstein to provide a small amount of original scoring. Even though quite brief and scored for a smaller ensemble of about twenty musicians, the score has all the hallmarks of its composer – wonderful melodies, and terrific dramatic writing. It’s very much in the style of his 1980s films, including the use of the Ondes Martinot.

    Mastered from the best available sources, there are some sound anomalies, but every effort has been made to minimize any problems. The CD runs just under thirty minutes. Given the archival nature of the release and the brevity, we are offering these two rare scores at a special price of $15.98 (plus shipping).

    This release is limited to 1000 copies only.

    CDs will ship in early November – preorders usually ship one to two weeks earlier.

    To place an order, see the cover, or hear audio samples, just visit www.kritzerland.com
  4. Listened to a few samples. I epsecially liked "Prince Jack", which had some hints of "Ghostbusters" in it.


    Less than 400 left of the original 1,000 -- and it's only been online for about three hours. It'll be gone tomorrow morning I wager; get it now if you want it!

    At the rate Bernstein is going for releases, one might consider this The Year of Bernstein.

  6. Yeah, how many unreleased Bernsteins could there possibly be left?

    (I know that at this board, unlike FSM, that question will be accepted as rhetorical, and not answered with a list of obscure gems.)

  7. Half his rejected scores, the rest of "Ghostbusters", and of course TV shows like "Gunsmoke".

    The rumours were true... the Paramount vaults have opened. Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit making soundtrack release predictions.

    -------------------

    MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!
    THIS IS AN URGENT MAYDAY ALERT…


    "THIS FRIDAY IS MAYDAY. IN HONORARIUM OF THE RUSSIAN NEW YEAR, LA-LA LAND RECORDS IS ANNOUCING THE UPCOMING RELEASE OF
    A VERY SPECIAL CD."

    "A very special CD? What is it?"

    "A ROUND PLASTIC DISC THAT HOLDS DIGITAL AUDIO INFORMATION… BUT THAT’S NOT IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW."

    "Surely, you can’t mean it’s…"

    "YES, IT’S EXACTLY THAT…
    AND DON’T CALL US 'SHIRLEY'."


    Undoubtedly, there will be hundreds of new soundtracks released throughout the rest of 2009. But, seriously, why settle for steak or fish when you can have lasagna?

    La-La Land Records proudly announces the premiere of the first officially licensed CD soundtrack release of Elmer Bernstein’s landmark score to the 1980 Paramount Pictures comedy classic AIRPLANE!, written and directed by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker.

    Produced by Dan Goldwasser, the score has been remastered by Michael Matessino from score mixer Dan Wallin’s original 3 Channel mixes (LCR), retrieved from the Paramount Pictures vault.

    Exclusive 20-Page CD booklet features in-depth liner notes, with photos and new comments from writer/directors Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, producer Jon Davison and others. This Limited Edition of 3000 Units includes special BONUS TRACKS featuring alternate takes.

    The perfect compliment to a Russian New Year parade, dancing and hot hors d’oeuvers, AIRPLANE!: THE LIMITED EDITION CD has been hailed by Capt. Rex Kramer as “Even better than a kick to the head with an iron boot!”

    AIRPLANE! is scheduled for departure from La-La Land Records next month! Orders commence at www.lalalandrecords .com on May 12th at 12pm noon (PST). Shipping May 19th.

    Air traffic control also confirms Paramount Pictures has cleared La-La Land Records to line up more exciting scores for final approach in the near future.

    Yeah, what do you mean by that? I was a co-producer on BLAZING SADDLES, and (basically) did all the work that a producer would have done on GODZILLA..... So, is this a good thing, or a bad thing?

    The possibilities are terrific. I can't believe that of all the great Paramount scores people have been crying out for for years, Airplane is the first one to get through the cracks... but I for one can't wait for it. I imagine the album will be a very fragmented listening experience (so many short cues) but there's probably not another film that I've watched more than this one, so for once I will be delighted to have the CD as a "reliving the film" kind of experience. (And that theme is GREAT!)

    Obviously it remains to be heard.... but we aim to maximize the listening experience. Hence, the track list indicates tracks combine cues.

    Whoahhh! AIRPLANE! That really is great news! shocked
    I've been hoping for a CD release for a long time. I was about 16 when I first saw the film and I still remember those great, over-the-top themes. Usually I don't like short tracks like these but if the album producers do aim to maximize the listening experience then count me in as a buyer! punk
