Superman The Movie (1978)...Original Soundtrack...Music by John Williams

This release features 25 tracks on 2 CD's packed with almost 2 1/2 hours of score! Remastered and expanded, including previously unreleased material.

Released during the era of leisure suits and pet rocks, the film Superman: The Movie has aged about as well. But the often-clumsy charms of Richard Donner's cartoonish, hit-and-miss take on the Man of Steel was blessed with at least one superlative artistic effort: John Williams's epic score. The composer's Oscar-nominated music (coming on the heels of Star Wars and Close Encounters) was a wall-to-wall heroic symphony, rife with memorable melodies and ominous arrangements. Almost every original cut on this soundtrack appears in an expanded version, supplemented by nearly a dozen previously unreleased cues and alternate takes. This is the definitive release of one of Maestro Williams's greatest scores. --Jerry McCulley (Amazon)

Young Guns Soundtrack...First Pressing release..Kickstarter Project

Support this independent record label as they release, for the first time ever, the epic score from the classic 80s film, YOUNG GUNS! 

Kickstarter Project page

The Young Guns original motion picture soundtrack has never been released...until now! 

After a lot of planning and hard work, rustedwave.com have acquired the rights to the music from the movie studio.  Now, they need your support so they can release the album and share the brilliant score from this cult classic 80's film. 

Released in 1988, Young Guns is an action-packed western that tells the story of Billy the Kid (Emilio Estevez) and the Regulators (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Phillips, Dermot Mulroney and Casey Siemaszko) exacting revenge upon the Santa Fe Ring during the Lincoln County War in 1878.  As good as the movie is, the score is what makes it great!

Composed by Anthony Marinelli and Brian Banks, the Young Guns score brilliantly embodies the off-kilter, emotionally unstable characteristics of Billy the Kid, both the man and the myth.  It is epic and powerful, but equally haunting with an underlying melancholy tone.

The album will be mastered from the original recordings and pressed on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl for the enhanced listening pleasure of all audiophiles out there!  It will also be released digitally on iTunes, Amazon and other platforms.

As a special "thank you" reward for certain supporters, they will be printing a LIMITED EDITION T-SHIRT (premium blend, soft comfy tee) featuring the album's artwork.  This t-shirt will not be sold commercially, so you must support the project at this level to get one!

Wolf...1994 film...Original Score ...music by Ennio Morricone

Ennio Morricone’s score for the 1994 Mike Nichols movie starring Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer is rather underrated. He doesn’t do a lot of horror scores for Hollywood – you have to go back to John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) for a memorable one. Here in Wolf, he channels a jazzy noir-ish style mixed with orchestral strings and electronic synths. The result is not quite spectacular, but interesting enough for fans of Morricone. It is a score that grows on you, centering less on clear, discernible melodies; instead the music is more atonal and atmospheric, but with structural cues to guide the listener.
