Tuomas Kantelinen's The Italian Key
11-Aug-2017 - Caldera Records presents the score for The Italian Key, directed by Rosa Karo. The film tells the story of 19-year old Cabella who receives a mysterious key as her only inheritance from her recently deceased uncle. The girl decides to literally unlock the secrets of her past by moving to a run-down villa in Italy. The music was written by Tuomas Kantelinen who is also the producer of the film and the husband of its director. Since the film has a vintage look about it is meant to be an old-finished film in many respects, Kantelinen decided to pay tribute to that musically by delivering a romantic score for orchestra, filled with several themes and motifs that describe the characters and their surroundings. Like the film, the music is charming, sunny and optimistic without lacking the depth the subject matter requires.

Gianni Ferrio's Io, Emmanuelle
17-Jul-2017 - Quartet Records in collaboration with Gruppo Sugar presents the premiere CD release of a Gianni Ferrio infectious, classy “Emmanuelle score.” Io, Emmanuelle (also known as A Man for Emmanuelle) was made in 1969, five years before the first entry of the popular erotic movie – and in fact has no relation to the famous franchise. Emmanuelle is a neurotic woman who is looking for tenderness in all the wrong places. She tries to enjoy sex, but the men she sleeps with are all either crude, selfish or arrogant with no real interest in her beside the carnal pleasures. Over the course of the film, she reaches out to all kinds of strange people with often depressing results. The music by Gianni Ferrio includes a series of self-contained pieces, each tailor-made for the increasingly crazier encounters with men.

Frand DeVol's Hustle/The Longest Yard
11-May-2017 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures are glad to present the world premiere release of the very cool score composed by Frank De Vol for Robert Aldrich’s neo-noir 1975 film Hustle. Hustle is about two weary and bitter LAPD detectives who are assigned to investigate the death of a young woman whose body is found on an isolated beach. They conclude, with the support of the coroner's report, that the victim, a hooker and known drug user named Gloria Hollinger, committed suicide using pills.  As a bonus, they have included the short score for The Longest Yard (1974), another De Vol-Aldrich-Reynolds-Paramount collaboration. For this cult sports comedy film about a workaholic convict who recruits a group of fellow prisoners to play football against their guards, De Vol composed another catchy tune as a main theme, along with some brief underscore cues and adaptations of famous Americans marches. Sadly, the session tapes of this soundtrack are long missing, so the only source that could be used was the mono stems, beautifully restored by Chris Malone for this release. The package includes a 16-page full-color booklet.

Simon Kölle's Ave Mater

By winning the Best Original Score at the Hollywood International Film Festival in 2016 and becoming the Best Original Score at London Independent Film Awards, Simon Kölle’s Ave Mater has already proven itself as one of the most engaging horror scores of the past season.

2-Mar-2017 - From Music on Vinyl comes a re-release of the score for HatariHenry Mancini produced the score for the Howard Hawks-directed, John Wayne-starring safari comedy Hatari! which included the well-known "Baby Elephant Walk".

Elsewhere, however, the soundtrack opts for some pleasant, but very Western jazz, only stopping for the African instrument-sampler "The Sounds of Hatari," which features some nice treated piano. The LP is 180 gram audiophile vinyl with a PVC protective sleeve. The first pressing is 500 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl.
