Varese Sarabande: "PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE" LP music by Danny Elfman


The beloved score to the classic 80’s film is back after a limited release last year.  This LP is pressed on red vinyl and includes not only the score to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure on side A, but is also accompanied by a bonus program of Danny Elfman’s score to Back to School on side B.  This LP can be purchased on Varesesarabande.com and other fine retailers.

In 1985, Tim Burton and Paul Reubens invited Elfman to write the score for their first feature film, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. This is Elfman’s first score for film, kicking off his award-winning career. For Pee-wee’s Big Adventure he turned to Oingo Boingo guitarist and arranger Steve Bartek for orchestration assistance. With this iconic score Elfman achieved his goal of emulating the mood of such composers as Nino Rota and Bernard Hermann.

Danny Elfman is an American composer, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Elfman first became known for being the lead singer and songwriter for the band Oingo Boingo from 1974 to 1995. He is well known for scoring films and television shows, particularly his frequent collaborations with director Tim Burton with their latest project being Dumbo.  Among his many notable projects are the scores of all the 50 Shades film, The Simpsons theme song, The original Spiderman and Batman film series scores and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
