Varese Sarabande: "CALITO'S WAY" LP music by Patrick Doyle


Available for the first time on vinyl, the score for Brian De Palma’s film Carlito’s Way by composer Patrick Doyle is being released on July 12th exclusively through Barnes and Noble. This package has artwork created by Gary Pullin along with LP labels and a back-cover reference to the famous pool hall scene.  Carlito’s Way will be a part of Barnes & Noble’s #BNVinyl Weekend 2019 and will be available through Barnes & Noble.

“I am extremely fortunate and proud to have composed the score for Carlito’s Way for the extraordinary auteur, Brian de Palma. I recognized the moment I first saw the film that it was a masterpiece and time has indeed confirmed this. Every new generation discovers Carlito’s Way and the enthusiasm and appreciation over the years for the film, for the score and for the work of all the other departments has been extremely flattering. This film has become a classic and to have my score be part of it is a tremendous honor. Thank you, Brian, once again.” Patrick Doyle, composer.

Patrick Doyle is a classically trained composer. His first film score, the acclaimed adaptation of Henry V with Kenneth Branagh for Renaissance films was scored in 1989. He has subsequently worked with Kenneth Branagh, a longtime collaborator on numerous pictures including Cinderella, Murder on the Orient Express, Dead Again, Much Ado About Nothing, Frankenstein and Hamlet. Patrick has composed over 45 internationally renowned feature film scores including Indochine, Sense and Sensibility, Carlito's Way, Gosford Park, A Little Princess, Bridget Jones's Diary, Nanny McPhee and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He has collaborated with a host of internationally acclaimed film directors including Robert Altman, Ang Lee, Brian de Palma, Alfonso Cuaron, Mike Newell, Regis Wagnier and Kenneth Branagh.

Carlito Brigante is released from jail after serving five years of a much longer stretch. He vows to go straight and to live life as a fine, upstanding citizen. He even rekindles a romance with his ex-lover. However, Carlito's associates cannot seem to leave him in peace...his nephew involves him a pool-room gunfight, his lawyer asks him for "favors" which spiral out of control, and even an old friend tries to get him into trouble with the law. Carlito decides to make a run for Florida and the promise of a new life but has one final dramatic escape to make from some hoods who believe (wrongly) that he was behind the murder of their boss.
