Shirley Walker/John Carpenter's Escape From L.A.
20-Feb-2014 - La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures have released the remastered and expanded release of Shirley Walker & John Carpenter's score to the 1996 Paramount Pictures futuristic actioner Escape From L.A. When it came time to score his big-budget follow-up to the cult classic Escape From N.Y., director/co-writer John Carpenter collaborated with the ingenious Shirley Walker to create the perfect musical soundscape for the further exploits of Snake Plissken. Building upon Carpenter's iconic synth template, Walker harnesses her trademark orchestral power and the result is a full-charging heroic score that takes Plissken to new action-packed heights. This expanded release boasts a running time of more than 78 minutes and contains cues that were recorded for the film, but never used.
