Auf dem FSM-Board hatte die auch treue Fans, aber bis vor kurzem standen da wohl auch Lawrence selbst keine Tapes zur Verfügung, mal schauen, was sie jetzt für die Veröffentlichung verwendet haben. Stilistisch erinnert der Score schon ein wenig an Michael Smalls "Klute".

Ab dem 29. März von Dragon's Domain Records:




Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents THE LEE HOLDRIDGE COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 featuring music composed and conducted by Lee Holdridge (JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL, SPLASH, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST) for two feature films from his extensive filmography, AFRICA and e’LOLLIPOP.

Lee Holdridge has scored a wide range of feature films, TV movies, television series and documentaries over the last four decades, with more than 220 projects, brimming with memorable and affecting music. Holdridge is particularly known for his lyrical, harmonic orchestral music but he’s also highly adept at dramatizing action and adventure. Dragon’s Domain Records celebrates two more of them in this second collection of his work; neither of them has been released commercially until now.

Released in 1999, AFRICA tells the story of a drug-troubled fashion model struggling to survive after a harrowing car accident leaves her stranded in the African bush. Holdridge composed a sultry score featuring soprano sax infused with West African percussion and copious synthesizers for the project. However his score was ultimately not used in the finished film. As are a lot of film scores that are unceremoniously tossed out, Holdridge’s music for AFRICA is a worthy listening experience on its own.

Released in 1975, e’LOLLIPOP tells the tale of two young boys—a young white orphan named Jannie and a black boy from the local village named Tsepo who meet face-to-face in Apartheid-stricken South Africa. After his parents tragically perish in a car accident, Jannie is temporarily sent to a missionary station near Tsepo’s village until more permanent housing arrangements can be made. Jannie and Tsepo share a lollipop through the missionary window and immediately become inseparable friends. After a serious playtime injury threatens Jannie’s life, Tsepo, his fellow villagers, and the missionary doctors work tirelessly to proffer ten-year-old Jannie special medical treatment in the United States. Stricken with guilt, Tsepo takes it upon himself to travel to New York City in search of Jannie and aide his recovery. e’LOLLIPOP was directed by Ashley Lazarus starring José Ferrer, Karen Valentine, Norman Knox, and Muntu Ndebele. An alternate version of e’LOLLIPOP retitled FOREVER YOUNG, FOREVER FREE featuring a truncated version of the film was released to audiences in the United States.

Lee Holdridge was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1944. He spent his early years in Costa Rica, beginning music studies on the violin at the age of ten with Hugo Mariani, then the conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. Later, Holdridge moved to New York to continue his music studies and begin his professional career as a composer. Holdridge’s successes in New York came to the attention of Neil Diamond who brought Holdridge to Los Angeles to write arrangements for his forthcoming albums. A string of Gold and Platinum hits followed, which led to Diamond and Holdridge collaborating on the film score for JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL. Since that time, Holdridge has scored numerous film such as SPLASH, BIG BUSINESS, MR. MOM, MICKI & MAUDE, 16 DAYS OF GLORY, SYLVESTER, A TIGER’S TALE, EL PUEBLO DEL SOL, OLD GRINGO, PASTIME and BROTHERS AT WAR. His television work include MOONLIGHTING, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, the complete eight hour remake of EAST OF EDEN, DREAMER OF OZ, Hallmark Hall Of Fame’s ONE AGAINST THE WIND and THE STORY LADY. Lee also began a very successful collaboration with Moriah Films, the film division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, with the Academy Award winning documentary feature film THE LONG WAY HOME. In addition to his film career, Mr. Holdridge has had an extensive repertoire of concert works performed and recorded. He has also worked with many major recording artists having written, arranged and conducted for Placido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Brian May of Queen, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, John Denver, Neil Sedaka, Daniel Rodriguez, Al Jarreau, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, Natalie Cole, Jane Oliver and many others.

Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring e’LOLLIPOP and AFRICA to compact disc for the first time as part of the LEE HOLDRIDGE COLLECTION, VOLUME 2, newly remastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author and composer Brian Satterwhite with the participation of the composer.

THE LEE HOLDRIDGE COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 is a limited edition release of 500 units. THE LEE HOLDRIDGE COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 will begin shipping the week of March 29, 2021.





Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, will be releasing KILLER PARTY for the first time, featuring music composed by John Beal (TERROR IN THE AISLES, THE FUNHOUSE) for the 1986 horror comedy directed by William Fruet, written by Barney Cohen and starring Martin Hewitt, Ralph Seymour, Elaine Wilkes and Paul Bartel.


Written by Barney Cohen of FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER fame, KILLER PARTY is a Canadian supernatural slasher film with comedic tongue-in-cheek overtones directed by William Fruet. A native of Alberta, Canada, Fruet directed a stream of low-budget horror flicks throughout the 1970s–80s including THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE, FUNERAL HOME, and SPASMS, before venturing into television to direct episodes of FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES, WAR OF THE WORLDS, and GOOSEBUMPS.


Released the same year as the seminal slasher APRIL FOOL’S DAY, KILLER PARTY lacerates the traditional April Fool’s joke to the nth degree. After a series of false introductions, the real plot of the movie revolves around a trio of young ladies who make a pact to pledge Sigma Alpha Pi, a popular sorority at their university during Hell Week. In spite of Mrs. Henshaw’s warning, the sorority sisters decide to hold their annual April Fool’s Night hazing ritual at Pratt House anyway. And the body count starts to rise…


The music for KILLER PARTY was composed and conducted by John Beal. A combat veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Beal is a prolific composer and conductor internationally recognized for his work with major recording artists including Elton John, Gladys Knight, Olivia Newton-John, Ella Fitzgerald, B.B. King, and Deadmau5 to name a few. As principal conductor of the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra, Maestro Beal has traveled the world directing orchestral performances in cities including London, Tokyo, Antwerp, Prague, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, and Luxembourg. In addition to his extensive conducting experience, Beal is also an accomplished composer having scribed scores for forty-five theatrical motion pictures including THE FUNHOUSE, TERROR IN THE AISLES and multiple television series.

Beal’s eclectic score for KILLER PARTY is the quintessential amalgam of 1980s synthesizer technology fused with live performances. Composed in just two weeks with the help of trusted friend and orchestrator Douglas Timm), Beal amassed fifty hefty minutes of avant-garde horror music far surpassing the strict budgetary limitations. An arsenal of high-tech gadgets including a Yamaha DX7, Fairlight CMI, and a mellotron were intermixed with a modest string section comprised of eight musicians and one player each performing trumpet, trombone, and tuba.

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, presents the world premiere release of KILLER PARTY, featuring music composed by John Beal, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. The booklet contains liner notes written by author and composer Brian Satterwhite, with the participation of the composer. 

KILLER PARTY is a limited edition of 500 units. KILLER PARTY is expected to start shipping the week of March 29th.





Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, will be releasing DIE, MOMMY DIE! for the first time, featuring music composed by Dennis McCarthy (STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE, V: THE FINAL BATTLE, MACGYVER) for the 2003 comedy directed by Mark Rucker, written by Charles Busch, starring Charles Busch, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Priestley, Angela Paton, Frances Conroy and Philip Baker Hall. 

DIE MOMMIE DIE! (2003) is a romantic comedy/murder mystery written by and starring female impersonator Charles Busch. Created as a parody/homage to 1950s and ‘60s women’s melodramas, the film is lightly humorous with plenty of dark comedy as it tells the story of fallen pop diva Angela Arden, who schemes to murder her inattentive and berating husband Sol in order to be with her young gigolo lover Tony, only to have his daughter Edith and their son Lance interfere with her carefully wrought plans.

The film’s musical score is the work of Dennis McCarthy, best known for scoring more than 250 episodes of STAR TREK across four iterations after the original series, THE NEXT GENERATION, VOYAGER, DEEP SPACE NINE and ENTERPRISE. During the 1980’s through the 2000’s, McCarthy was among the most durable and dependable TV composers in the business. From his experience scoring romantic suspense TV movies, McCarthy immediately understood the kind of musical treatment this film needed. McCarthy’s music budget for this film accommodated an orchestra of some 30 instruments; to that group he added a 15-player rhythm section to handle unique flavors and beats as needed. While the orchestral ensemble creates the tension, drama, and mood of the story, the rhythm section defines the period and maintains the rhythm, color, and groove throughout the music cues. 

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed by BuySoundtrax, presents the world premiere release of DIE, MOMMY, DIE!, featuring music composed by Dennis McCarthy, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. The booklet contains liner notes written by noted author Randall Larson, featuring the participation of the composer.

DIE, MOMMY, DIE! is a limited edition of 500 units. DIE, MOMMY, DIE! is expected to start shipping the week of March 29th.

Music Box am 1. April: "Rare Soundtracks Vol. 4", Serge Franklin & Nicolas Erréra





World Premiere CD Release. 3-CD set.
16-page CD booklet with French and English liner notes by Albéric Marsolet.

In collaboration with AMC, Amplitude, Larghetto, Studiocanal and EMI Music Publishing, Music Box Records presents a 3-CD set featuring seven French soundtracks composed between 1979 and 1989: Légitime Violence (Quest for Justice) composed by Jean-Marie Sénia, Mesrine composed by Jean-Pierre Rusconi, Twist again à Moscou (Twist Again in Moscow) and Mes meilleurs copains (My Best Pals) both composed by Michel Goglat, Le Sang des autres (The Blood of Others) composed by Matthieu Chabrol, Le Crime d'amour composed by Jean Wiener and L'Empreinte des géants (The Imprint of Giants) composed by Karl-Heinz Schäfer.

This fourth Rare Soundtracks boxset puts the spotlight on the 1980s in all their political and social harshness, with their sense of self-derision but also their nostalgic side. Between the French vigilante movie (Légitime violence) and the comedy movies of Jean-Marie Poiré (Twist again à Moscou and Mes meilleurs copains), Music Box Records once again offers film music as eclectic as it is rare and cult. As for the soundtrack of Mesrine by Jean-Pierre Rusconi, it is the Grail whose release will delight many fans of this music which draws its inspiration from Giorgio Moroder and Ennio Morricone. This present edition also features the father-son partnership from the Chabrol family (Le Sang des autres, a lesser-known film adaptation of Simone de Beauvoir's novel, with Jodie Foster in the leading role), Jean Wiener (Le Crime d'amour by Guy Gilles, with a song performed by Macha Méril), as well as Karl-Heinz Schäfer (L’Empreinte des géants, with the sensitive bandoneon of Juán José Mosalini).

This remastered 3-CD boxset includes a 16-page booklet with liner notes by Albéric Marsolet, discussing the films and the scores. The release is limited to 350 units.





World Premiere Release.
Remastered edition.
8-page CD booklet with French and English liner notes by Sylvain Pfeffer.

In collaboration with Warner Chappell Music France, Warner Music and Sony ATV, Music Box Records proudly presents the fourth volume of the collection Great Television Soundtracks dedicated to two original television soundtracks composed by Serge Franklin: Des grives aux loups (Thrushes to the Wolves, 1984) and Le juge est une femme - Le secret de Marion (The Judge Is a Woman - The Secret of Marion, 1995).

In 1984, Pathé and the French channel Antenne 2 decide to adapt Claude Michelet’s regionalist novel, Des grives aux loups, into a TV series. Broadcasted in six fifty-two-minute-long episodes, the series attracted a large audience and was awarded the 7 d’Or for Best TV series and was nominated in the Best Original Score category. Des grives aux loups marked the reunion between Philippe Monnier (L'Enfant des loups) and French composer Serge Franklin after two lesser-known television films. Recorded in Rome, this relatively intimate score is built around three reoccurring themes. The main theme is a bright and stirring waltz. Sung by Charles Dumont, the theme opens each episode of the TV series. The second theme is in line with the pastoral tradition through its use of the oboe. The third theme is associated with the Vialhe family. Sadder and more nostalgic, it is mainly performed by oboes and an accordion. This theme is also adapted as a song, Un peu d’enfance, performed by Charles Dumont.

For Le secret de Marion, an episode from the TV series Le juge est une femme, directed by Didier Albert and written by Daniel de Saint-Hamont (a frequent collaborator with director Alexandre Arcady), Serge Franklin delivers a dynamic score, sometimes jazzy, with an array of electronic drum loops, which reminds Sandra, princesse rebelle composed the same year.

Remastered from the original recording sessions, the program has been supervised by Serge Franklin. The 8-page booklet features an essay by Sylvain Pfeffer discussing the series and the scores based on an original interview with the composer. The release is limited to 300 units.





World Premiere CD Release.
8-page CD booklet with liner notes by Daniel Schweiger.

In collaboration with Enka, Music Box Records presents the premiere CD release of the original soundtracks of Chinese director Larry Yang’s two feature films composed by Nicolas Errèra (The Butterfly, Adoring): Mountain Cry (2015) and My Other Home (2017).

Adapted from the award-winning novel by Ge Shuiping, Larry Yang’s acclaimed 2015 Chinese film Mountain Cry is both mystery and love story as the blame for the explosive death of a mute’s husband falls upon the wastrel bachelor Han Chong (Ziyi Wang). Mountain Cry’s lush score was recorded at Angel Studios in London, with the film premiering as the closing presentation at South Korea’s Busan International. With his poetic score, French composer Nicolas Errèra powerfully speaks to these depths and heights of human nature, as communicated in melody both intimate and emotionally sweeping.

Errèra's second collaboration with Yang titled My Other Home is about former NBA player Stephan Marbury based on his journey to China to find a new, winning destiny as the star player for The Beijing Ducks. Errèra’s tender melodies bring Marbury new hope, the melancholy tone of piano, violin and a subtle electronic beat rising with noble, brass determination that makes for this winningly inspirational sports film about team spirit.

The 8-page booklet features liner notes by Daniel Schweiger, discussing the films and the scores, based on new comments by Nicolas Errèra and Larry Yang

GAD Records haben zwei CDs mit weiteren Scores von Andrzej Korzynski veröffentlicht. Dercd_160_korzynski_wielki_uklad-uai-720x72



Fenders Klavier, analoger Synthesizer, pulsierender Bass und Echo, Echo, Echo ... Musik aus Andrzej Jerzy Piotrowskis psychologischem Film ist ein hypnotisches Mysterium, das von denselben Musikern gespielt wird, die hauptsächlich unter dem Namen Arp Life aufgenommen haben.

Die verworrene persönliche Intrige mit Leonard Pietraszak und Małgorzata Braunek in den Hauptrollen bleibt bis heute eines der besten Bilder in der Produktion des Regisseurs (auf dem Niveau der "Geschäftsreise" des Fernsehens). Andrzej Korzyński mit innovativer und ansprechender Musik im zeitgenössischen Film. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt gewann das Arp Life-Projekt eine besondere Bedeutung für seine Leistungen - die Aufnahmen für "The Grand System" sind in der Tat eine weitere Session, die von diesem legendären Projekt durchgeführt wird. Es besteht aus Stücken voller Angst, basierend auf einem aggressiven Synthesizer-Puls und Themen, die in Reverbs getaucht sind und Fenders psychedelisches Klavier enthüllen. Dies ist die gleiche Richtung wie Man of Marble, die sechs Monate später realisiert wurde - nur viel mutiger und seltsamer.

"Wielki System" erscheint in einer überarbeiteten Ausgabe der Originalbänder aus den Archiven des CeTA Audiovisual Technology Center in Wrocław. Dies ist eine weitere Frucht (nach der Musik aus der Serie "Czterej pancerni i pies" und den Aufnahmen von Wojciech Kilar aus den Filmen "Cała naprzód" und "Giuseppe in Warschau") der Zusammenarbeit mit den Hütern der Erinnerung an den Wrocław Fabular Film Studio. Die CeTA-Sammlung umfasst über 10.000 einzigartige Filmkostüme und unveröffentlichte Filmmusik von Wojciech Kilar, Adam Sławiński, Piotr Hertl, Włodzimierz Nahorny und Jerzy Derfl.





Ein Film voller Angst und dunkler Geheimnisse. Ein psychologisches Spiel, das sich auch in bewegender Musik widerspiegelt und oft in ebenso dunklen Farben gemalt wird. Einer der interessantesten Soundtracks von Andrzej Korzyński aus den 90ern des letzten Jahrhunderts kehrt auf das Album zurück - in einer völlig neuen Version.

"Panna Nobody" ist einer der bekanntesten Filme der 90er Jahre. Basierend auf dem Roman von Tomasz Tryzna erzählt er von einem 15-jährigen Mädchen, das vom Land in die Stadt zieht und sich nicht in der neuen Realität wiederfinden kann . Neu getroffene Freunde haben einen erheblichen Einfluss auf ihre Psyche und ziehen sie in ein gefährliches Spiel. Das dunkle Gemälde wurde von der faszinierenden Musik von Andrzej Korzyński begleitet, der als eine seiner größten Errungenschaften dieses Jahrzehnts gilt. Es handelt sich hauptsächlich um elektronische Musik, die auf monotonen, düsteren Sequenzen basiert und mehreren lyrischen Themen gegenübergestellt wird, die Korzyńskis melodischen Sinn enthüllen.

Die ursprünglichen Aufnahmesitzungen während des Soundtracks des Films wurden stark bearbeitet. Einige dieser Maßnahmen wurden anlässlich der ersten CD-Version wiederholt, die 1996 vom Koch-Verlag veröffentlicht wurde. Den Aufnahmen wurden Fragmente von Dialogen aus dem Film und Soundeffekten hinzugefügt, und einige Themen wurden durch zusätzliche Instrumentalparts und Loops ergänzt . Diese Ausgabe wiederholt einige der aus der ersten CD-Veröffentlichung bekannten Materialien, lässt jedoch Fragmente aus, die sich ausschließlich auf Dialoge und Sounddesign konzentrieren. Stattdessen erscheinen (soweit möglich) die Originalversionen der Themen und anderer Kompositionen, die unter Berücksichtigung des Films erstellt wurden.

"Panna Nikt" erscheint in einer überarbeiteten Form, angereichert mit einer neuen Broschüre. Dies ist ein weiteres Album von GAD Records mit Filmmusik, das zu einem der Schlüsselelemente des Verlagskatalogs geworden ist. Dies wird durch die in den letzten Monaten veröffentlichten Alben von Wojciech Kilar, Adam Sławiński, Adam Walaciński und Henryk Kuźniak bestätigt. Die nächsten werden bereits vorbereitet.
