Howlin' Wolf Records proudly presents Christoph Allerstorfer's score for THE JACK IN THE BOX.

Notefornote Music: "REMO WILLIAMS: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS" (35th Anniversary Edition) Music by Craig Safan


Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, also released as Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous, is a 1985 American action-adventure film directed by Guy Hamilton. The film featured Fred Ward, Joel Grey, J. A. Preston, Wilford Brimley and Kate Mulgrew.

The character is based on The Destroyer pulp paperback series. The movie was the only adaptation featuring the character Remo Williams, and fared poorly in theaters. It received mixed reviews from critics, although it did earn Joel Grey a Golden Globe nomination. The film and a Remo Williams television pilot both credited Dick Clark as executive producer. The film was supposed to be the first of a series based on The Destroyer series of novels. A significant set-piece within the film takes place at the Statue of Liberty, which was surrounded by scaffolding for its restoration during this period.  Pre-orders now being accepted.  We expect CDs to arrive and ship the week of April 20.

With all the bad stuff happening in the world at the moment, something great comes from "Notefornote Music" and that is this score to one my favorite films. Composer Craig Safan brought his musical talents to this film, gave it life and today it has a fresh life. It's been released a few times, those were great releases by great labels... Notefornote Music gives a remastered edition that is clean, crisp and a worthy release.

MVD Entertainment Group: "SIXTEEN CANDLES" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


In his debut film as writer-director, John Hughes immediately cemented himself as the king of teen cinema with Sixteen Candles, and in the process also introduced one of the most iconic faces of '80s Americana: Molly Ringwald. For high schooler Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), her 16th birthday might be the worst day of her life. Her entire family has forgotten about it due to her older sister's impending wedding; her biggest crush, high school hunk Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) has discovered an embarrassing "sex quiz" filled out by Sam in which she details how she is saving herself for him; and to make matters worse, she is hounded by a relentless nerd (Anthony Michael Hall) who won't take no for an answer. But Sam's sweet sixteen isn't over yet, and before the end of the night, all her birthday wishes could still come true... Taking the rude and crude humor of the teen sex comedies that came before it and placing it within the intimately portrayed perspective of a girl's mid-teenage-life crisis, Sixteen Candles is a bombshell of 80s pop culture that continues to be debated and beloved over three decades after its release. Year of Production: 1984

She's back! Elvira, Horrorland's hostess with the mostest, finally busts out on Blu-ray with this long-awaited, positively bursting-at-the-seams special edition of her big screen debut, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark! Having just quit her job as a Los Angeles TV horror hostess, Elvira receives the unexpected news that she's set to inherit part of her great aunt Morgana's estate. Arriving in the small town of Fallwell, Massachusetts to claim her inheritance, Elvira receives a less than enthusiastic reception from the conservative locals - amongst them, her sinister uncle Vincent, who, unbeknownst to Elvira, is in fact an evil warlock secretly scheming to steal the old family spellbook for his own nefarious ends... Campy, quirky and stuffed to the brim with more double entendres than your average Carry On movie, 1988's Elvira: Mistress of the Dark helped solidify the horror hostess (played by Cassandra Peterson) as a major pop culture icon, here owning every inch of the screen with her quick wit, sass, and of course, cleaving-enhancing gown!

MVD Entertainment Group: "THE WIND" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


What would you do if going outside meant being killed by a raging hurricane, but staying indoors meant being hacked to pieces by a sickle wielding maniac? Arrow video proudly presents The Wind, from prolific genre filmmaker Nico Mastorakis, the director behind such cult classics as Hired to Kill and Island of Death. When mystery novelist Sian Anderson (Meg Foster, They Live) arrives in the remote Greek town of Monemvasia, Elias Appleby (Robert Morley, The African Queen), the pompous British landlord of the house she's renting warns her of two dangers: the wind, which gets dangerously strong at night, and Phil (Wings Hauser, Vice Squad), his sleazy and suspicious American handyman. As night falls and the wind starts howling, Sian witnesses the shocking sight of Phil burying Elias's dead body in a shallow grave in his front garden! Trapped indoors from the raging, tree-branch-breaking wind, Sian must play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the murderous Phil, who'll stop at nothing to silence this inconvenient witness! A tense and thrilling blend of Euro-horror and late 80s slasher, The Wind is a stalk 'n' slash hidden gem, presented here for the first time on Blu-ray. Get ready to be blown away!

MVD Entertainment Group: "WHY DON'T YOU JUST DIE!" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style, described as "a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humor" (The Hollywood Reporter) and "an amazing first feature from a filmmaker to watch" (Screen Anarchy). Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable - not to mention ruthless - opponent than he anticipated... and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die. Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don't You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema's brightest rising stars. Year of Production: 2018

Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Beyond the Door stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviors whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say "split pea soup", Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession - complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she's carrying the child of the Antichrist himself? Described as "disgusting", "scary trash" and "maddeningly inappropriate" by film critic Robert Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), the devilish denizens at Arrow Video have summoned up this wickedly entertaining popcorn spiller in a brand new, extras-packed edition fit for Satan himself!

Hollywood Records: "Motherland: Fort Salem" music by Brandon Roberts


Hollywood Records releases Motherland: Fort Salem digital soundtrack available for download. Original score composed by Brandon Roberts.  Created by Eliot Laurence (who also created "Claws"), "Motherland: Fort Salem" is set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country. "Motherland: Fort Salem" follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped with women on the front lines, the fight looming and terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons.

Intrada: "MORITURI" Music Composed by JERRY GOLDSMITH, Conducted by LIONEL NEWMAN


Intrada's latest release is a reexamination of Jerry Goldsmith's 1965 score for the World War II drama Morituri, from the 20th Century-Fox library. Morituri is part of a set of war films scored by Goldsmith in the '60s, including The Sand Pebbles, In Harm's Way, and The Blue Max. While originally released by the Film Score Monthly label, due to poor condition elements and limitations in technology of the day, that album featured some compromised sound and inter-cuts from mono sources in order to make the score presentable. Under the detailed eyes and ears of producer Mike Matessino, this new release has been restored from the complete stereo elements and features dramatically improved sound over the previous version.

As Tim Grieving writes in his notes, "This is a score of suspense and action, tension and explosion. Tricks like quivering tremolo strings and rhythmic ticking accomplish the former, and Goldsmith got creative in how he chose to fuel the latter." While the first half of the film is sparsely spotted, Goldsmith relied on his trademark Asian-flavored sound to orient the viewer to the Tokyo and Calcutta locales. Throughout, a theme first introduced in the main title on zither, reoccurs throughout in various guises, tying the score together.


Adapted from a 1960 German novel by Werner Jörg Lüddecke, this morality thriller is set on the high seas during the reign of the Nazi regime. A German man, hiding in luxury in Switzerland, is blackmailed by the English army into posing as an SS officer on a merchant vessel carrying a valuable shipment of rubber from Japan to Germany. His mission: disable the scuttling charges protecting the ship so the Allies can attack it and scoop up the cargo. The film stars Marlon Brando and Yul Brynner.

Intrada: "HEAVENQUEST: A PILGRIM'S PROGRESS" (Digital-Only) Music by JONATHAN BEARD

 
Intrada announces its first digital-only release, continuing its support of soundtracks for smaller films in the ever-shrinking physical music distribution business. For its inaugural digital release, Intrada features Jonathan Beard's score to the Vudu-distributed film Heavenquest: A Pilgrim's Progress. Beard, who previously scored What Still Remains and Frank Vs. God, composed a score that served double-duty — embodying both the external, epic onscreen adventure and the inward journey of protagonist Vangel (Patrick Thompson). As Beard notes, "There are numerous extended sequences with no dialogue where the lushness of the score really shines, in addition to some epic battle moments. But it is the quieter poignant material that resonates with me the most and was a particular treat to compose."

The score, a mix of electronics and acoustics, features a large percussion section and highlights vocal, violin, flute and cello solos throughout, plus other-worldly electronics to underscore the darker fantasy side of the film as well as flashback sequences. The epic main title features a soaring vocal by Elyse Willis. "Early on in the scoring process, I holed up in my studio with my synthesizer arsenal for a number of days, and designed numerous electronic textures that we used throughout those portions," said Beard.

In the film, Vangel is a regal man, forced into a journey upon his sudden and mysterious arrest. Injured while escaping, he experiences strange visions and dreams featuring a lady in white calling to him from the unknown North. His adventure takes him through mountains, deserts, lakes and forests, with promises of a better life...if he can make it there alive.

Caldera Records: "FLAME IN THE WIND/SHEFFEY" music by Dwight Gustafson


Caldera Records is proud to present the original scores for the motion pictures “Flame in the Wind” and “Sheffey” from 1971 and 1977 respectively.

Both films were produced by Unusual Film, a division of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. “Flame in the Wind” is set during the time of the Spanish Inquisition and follows a young man named Carlos who is faced with a conflict throughout the course of the motion picture: should he, horrified by the Inquisition, follow the Bible, or adhere to religious tradition?

“Sheffey” was an even bigger undertaking, a lavish and expensive production: Born in 1820, Robert Sheffey was a Methodist evangelist who spent his lifetime taking care of those in need, traveling through Virginia and Tennessee and preaching the word of God.

The music for both films was composed by Dwight Gustafson. Born in 1930, Gustafson was named acting dean of the School of Fine Arts at BJU at 24. He served as administrator, taught, composed, conducted and preached until his retirement in 1997.

The music for “Flame in the Wind” is based around three themes which recur throughout the score, which was issued on an LP by Unusual Films in 1971. Gustafson wrote a leitmotif for the film’s hero Carlos which is supposed to reveal the pathos and heroism of the young man as he tries to find his way. The second theme, a rather eerie, instrumental melody for the Inquisition expresses the repression and terror for which the inquisitors are responsible, while a triumphant chorale seeks to honor the true believers who have lost their lives due to their faith in Jesus Christ during the Spanish Inquisition.

“Sheffey” follows a different musical conception, although Gustafon’s style is unmistakable. Since the film, through the life of Robert Sheffey, tells the story of folk religion, Gustafson decided to employ various folk tunes as seemed appropriate to backbone for his score.

Both “Flame in the Wind” and “Sheffey” were composed, orchestrated and conducted by Dwight Gustafson and recorded with the Bob Jones University Symphony Orchestra, composed of students and faculty. LPs of both scores were made available by Unusual Films/BJU to coincide with the film releases.

The 35th Caldera CD features a detailed booklet-text by Stephan Eicke and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was mastered by Richard Moore and produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg. [http://caldera-records.com/]
 
Richness, 70's-esque sounding and rather moving scores by composer Dwight Gustafson who I had not heard of until this release. Style on "FLAME IN THE WIND" is pretty heavy on the strings which I love, worth it for sure. Onto "SHEFFEY" feels to be more upbeat, I seem to be weighing in on liking this score better... though both are very well done.

KeepMoving Records: “Saving Leningrad” music by Yuri Poteyenko [Limited Edition of 100 copies]


KeepMoving Records releases Yuri Poteyenko’s latest score for Saving Leningrad. Directed by Alexey Kozlov, the film is based on the true story of Barge 752, one of the biggest shipwreck tragedies of Russian history. Originally designed as a fishing boat, Barge 752 was not designed for passenger transport, yet over a thousand people were loaded onto it during the evacuation of the city. When the ship crashed in a storm, only 200 of the estimated 1500 passengers reached the shore safely. The true story of Barge 752 was kept classified until 2004 and even when it was released to the public, only a few people learned about it. This is about to change with Saving Leningrad, aimed to raise awareness about this shocking event to a wider audience.

The music for Saving Leningrad alternates between high-octane battle pieces as well as Shostakovich-inspired cues that showed the darker side of Mother Nature with the storm being a much deadlier enemy than any German fighter pilots. The other half of the cue features the romantic moments for a couple whose relationship is tested by the tragedy. The soundtrack features almost the whole underscore recorded for the movie. As it is so typical of Russian films, some of the cues have been moved around or repeated, but have been reconfigured for the most optimal listening experience for the CD. The album comes with liner notes by Gergely Hubai discussing the historical events, the film and the score.

Bazillion Points: "TEXAS IS THE REASON: The Mavericks of Lone Star Punk"


New from Bazillion Points, publisher of definitive music scene histories Swedish Death Metal, Sub Pop USA, Touch and Go, We Got Power!, Murder in the Front Row, NYHC, and Metalion.

Arriving in 1978, hitched to the back of the Sex Pistols tour bus, Texas punk rock soon became as mythic as the state’s devotion to football, cattle, and prayer. Confrontational renegades like the Huns, the Big Boys, and the Dicks led a defiant new era of blood, sweat, and cross-dressing cowboys.

Joining Pat Blashill’s over 200 deep black and white photos here are essays by director Richard Linklater (Slacker/School of Rock); singer David Yow (Scratch Acid/Jesus Lizard); drummer Teresa Taylor (Butthole Surfers); and local luminaries Adriane “Ash” Shown and Donna Rich. True mavericks banded together to make a stand, and...Texas Is the Reason.

“Pat Blashill’s beautiful book of photos captures the poetics and energetic eccentricities of the post punk Austin, Texas music scene of the '80s, things one will never get on the internet. Long live books—and this one kicks ass."—Kim Gordon

"Great bands come out of great scenes, so Blashill shoots not just the shows but the community. Even the intimate moments scream punk rock, and even the punk rock moments scream intimacy."—Michael Azerrad, This Band Could Be Your Life!

Walt Disney Records: "STARGIRL" music by Rob Simonsen


Walt Disney Records releases the Stargirl digital soundtrack, streaming exclusively on Disney+ today. The album features 7 songs performed by Grace VanderWaal with score composed by Rob Simonsen (“The Way Back,” “Love, Simon”), available now.

Stargirl, a film adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, features VanderWaal playing the titular role of the same name. Written by VanderWaal while filming, “Today and Tomorrow” is the end-credit title track and the clip-based video can be seen here. VandwerWaal debuted the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 11: [CLICK HERE]

Grace VanderWaal is a creative force to be reckoned with. Following her meteoric rise and the release of her best-selling EP, Perfectly Imperfect, and full-length album, Just The Beginning, the America’s Got Talent winner returned with a new EP titled LETTERS: VOL. 1 late last year. To date Grace has over 700 million streams worldwide. All throughout, VanderWaal keeps her millions of fans updated on her daily musings and everyday evolution on social media, all while enjoying the experience of simply being a teenager. Letters: Vol. 2 is set for release later this year via Columbia Records.

“Stargirl” from Disney+ is a tender and offbeat coming-of-age story based on the critically-acclaimed, New York Times’ best-selling young adult novel about an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to the free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves…and their world. Leo Borlock (Graham Verchere) is an average student at Mica High School. He gets decent grades, is a member of the school’s marching band and has always been content flying under the radar. But all that changes when he meets Stargirl Caraway (Grace VanderWaal), a confident and colorful new student with a penchant for the ukulele, who stands out in a crowd. She is kind, finds magic in the mundane and touches the lives of others with the simplest of gestures. Her eccentricities and infectious personality charm Leo and the student body, and she quickly goes from being ignored and ridiculed to accepted and praised, then back again, sending Leo on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. A celebration of individuality, kindness and the power of the human spirit, “Stargirl” is directed by Julia Hart from a screenplay by Kristin Hahn and Julia Hart & Jordan Horowitz based on the novel by Jerry Spinelli. The film stars singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal in her film debut, Graham Verchere, Karan Brar, Maximiliano Hernandez, Darby Stanchfield and Giancarlo Esposito. “Stargirl” is produced by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, p.g.a., Lee Stollman, p.g.a., and Kristin Hahn, p.g.a., with Jordan Horowitz, Jim Powers, Jerry Spinelli, Eddie Gamarra, Catherine Hardwicke and Jonathan Levin as executive producers.
