D.A.R.Y.L.
MUSIC BY MARVIN HAMLISCH
LLLCD 1307
LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 UNITS


La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the WORLD PREMIERE release of yet another 80’s classic – D.A.R.Y.L. This magnificent score was composed by another legend in the music industry – the late, great Marvin Hamlisch. If you grew up in the 80’s, this light hearted children’s sci-fi film was almost mandatory viewing on cable since it was probably shown at least twice a day on HBO for the entire decade! This La-La Land fav features a memorable and beautiful score by one of Hollywood’s most diverse and talented composers. Also on this release is the film’s title song – SOMEWHERE I BELONG, written by Hamlisch/Pitchford and performed by Teddy Pendergrass. Jeff Bond takes the listener deep inside the film’s history and the scores’ creation as Dan Goldwasser’s sure hand at art direction makes the whole thing look good.
