It hasn't been posted here yet. Well this is one I will skip. I've got to be choosy this year for limited CD releases this year, basically got to decide if I want it or not since I want to concentrate on paying some crap off this year.

Right, so, I'm sure you've seen this poster celebrating La La Land's 100th release on July 21st?

http://johndadlez.com/pix/LaLaLand_100_releases.jpg

That poster only shows 95 releases (#1-#94 and #98). But we already know two more releases - Mars Attacks Expanded by Danny Elfman (link) and 28 Weeks Later by John Murphy (link).

Well the Amazon listing for another release mentioned in that second FSM link lets the cat out of the bag: Battlestar Galactica Season 4 is the July 21st release that is their 100th release

http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica...3611&sr=1-5

(2-CD set) La-La Land Records proudly presents its 100th soundtrack release, the 2-CD Set Battlestar Galactica: Season 4. Acclaimed Battlestar composer Bear McCreary pulls out all the musical stops with his sensational music score to the fourth and final season of the critically lauded Sci Fi Channel television series starring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff. McCreary enriches and expands his glorious, one-of-a-kind mix of orchestra, vocals, rock, world-beats and synth. A sonic powerhouse that lives on beyond this beloved television show.

So, assuming Mars Attacks is #95 and 28 Weeks Later is #96, now we only don't know #97 and #99.... could they be Batman TAS Volume II and X-Files 4CD set?

MV from LLL has said that Mars Attacks is #96 and 28 Weeks Later is #97, and offered these clues as to what #s 95 and 99 are:

#95 is a limited editon of 3,000 units -- a title that has been requested more than once on this board.

#99 is a limited edition of 1,200 units. A title that may not have been oft requested but is certainly a . . . well, let's face it -- it's an intriguing release. LOL

I remember the movie being worse than King Solomon's Mines and recycling some of Goldsmith's score from the first film.

But hey, if it can be released then a label might as well take a chance and do it.

Yeah, it is worse than the first one, and it tracks a lot of pieces from the Goldsmith score... But there's also this nostalgic feeling ;-)

According to Wikipedia:

"To cut costs, the movie score was just a reuse of the material composed by Jerry Goldsmith for the first movie, which caused confusion as to which movie of the two was being watched, and just half an hour of original music written by Michael Linn." ;)

That was before people became used to James Horner.

I can see getting this one for "nostalgic" purposes (like a good number of scores I have). Though I can't see it being better than the Goldsmith score for the first one in any way. But fun nonetheless! ;)

We'll listen to it on our next drive together, right Paleo? :D

Hey guys,

I know money is tight and you need to pick and choose what to buy cd wise nowadays so I opted to jump the gun here slightly to let you know on Oct 6 we have 2 wonderful Limited Edition scores ready for order:

The first is GREEN LANTERN: FINAL FLIGHT (Limited Edition of 1500 units) - this wonderful score by Robert J. Kral (Superman Doomsday, Angel, Haunting in Connecticut) comes to you courtesy of Warner Bros Animation. As always, the first 100 or so units sold through our website will be signed by the composer at no extra charge. RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

The second title comes to you courtesy of Paramount. It's a two fer - two wonderful scores by the same composer. Both scores have never been released and will fill TWO HUGE HOLES in this composers vast catalog. It's pretty much a must buy for any soundtrack collector. The title will be limited to 3000 units. No autographs will be available. RETAIL PRICE: $19.98

As you all know, normally I don't tease, but today I am feeling rather sadistic so enjoy playing the guessing game. Mu ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

See you back here on Oct 6, 2009 12 pm NOON PST.

Probably something from either Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein or James Horner.

A must buy for any soundtrack collector though. Are there really big gaps in their filmographies that many score fans would love to have? Doesn't Goldsmith only have a few obscure more unknown scores that haven't been released?
