La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. and Universal Music Special Markets proudly present the expanded release of renowned composer Dimitri Tiomkin’s (HIGH NOON, RIO BRAVO, THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE) original motion picture score to the 1956 dramatic saga GIANT, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean, and directed by George Stevens. Tiomkin matches the epic dramatic reach of this classic tale with an equally epic masterwork that is robust, lyrical, brooding and soulful. Produced, edited and assembled by Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Doug Schwartz from mono studio vault elements, with additional engineering by Mike Matessino, this deluxe 2-CD set is greatly expanded beyond the original soundtrack album presentation, running over 2 hours and 25 minutes.
While the complete film version of the score no longer exists, producer Bulk painstakingly augmented surviving film takes with alternates cues and additional materials (recovered and transferred specifically for this release) to create this wonderful assembly. Bonus tracks include album tracks and further alternate cues. Exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Frank K. DeWald and appropriately epic art direction by Jim Titus complement this historic presentation of a truly great work from one of filmdom’s most legendary composers. This is a limited edition run of 3000 Units.
