The new Varèse Sarabande CD Club titles...
12-Mar-2007 - To kick off the CD Club releases for 2007 Varèse Sarabande offers one of the biggest releases yet to come from the Club. Bill Conti’s score for 1984’s The Karate Kid is another of the quintessential scores from the 80s that everyone remembers. It is also a score that left film music fans of the time absolutely bewildered that such a famous score for such a successful film could go unreleased. For the first time ever … four premiere releases … Bill Conti’s The Karate Kid, The Karate Kid, Part II, The Karate Kid, Part III and The Next Karate Kid are now available in a 4 CD Box set!
Returning to the CD Club is the great Dave Grusin. His score for Author! Author! was actually a rescore job, and as a very special bonus, also presented is the unused original score for the film by none other than Johnny Mandel! Two legendary jazz composers both scoring the same film! Perfect casting for both of them, yet only Grusin’s music has ever been heard.
Jerry Goldsmith’s 1993 score for Twentieth Century-Fox’s remake of The Vanishing was one of the composer’s very rare ‘90s scores to go without an album release. Goldsmith’s score is both intense and beautiful, while steeped in psychological intrigue. It is stylistically similar to the composer’s brilliant work on Basic Instinct but is as unique as ever for Goldsmith.
George Fenton returns to the CD Club for the first time since We’re No Angels. Here with a charming and heartfelt score for 84 Charing Cross Road, the story of a very special correspondence and friendship between a New York script-reader and a bookseller, who works at Marks & Co., 84 Charing Cross Road in London.
