VARÈSE SARABANDE ANNOUNCES THE NEXT FOUR CD CLUB TITLES


The Cowboys – John Williams
Small Soldiers – Jerry Goldsmith
The Complete London Sessions – Georges Delerue
Heathers – David Newman

(June 19, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande Records announces the next four album releases as part of their famed CD Club title program to be available beginning on June 18th: THE COWBOYS: THE DELUXE EDITION (John Williams), SMALL SOLDIERS: THE DELUXE EDITION (Jerry Goldsmith), GEORGES DELERUE: THE COMPLETE LONDON SESSIONS, and HEATHERS: ENCORE EDITION composed by David Newman.

The latest CD Club titles will kick-off the 40th anniversary celebration which will spotlight the legacy of the world’s most renowned soundtrack record label.  The concept of the CD Club debuted in 1989 as a mail order exclusive releasing limited edition batches of beloved previously unreleased or long-out of print scores, carefully curated by Robert Townson.

The first batch of Varèse Sarabande CD Club titles for this anniversary year begins with John Williams most epic pre-Star Wars score – the Deluxe Edition of John Williams’ THE COWBOYS.  The 1972 score is classic Williams, loaded with melody and adventure, in it he gave us his greatest and grandest western and one that would even spawn one of the composers greatest concert overtures, the beloved The Cowboys Overture.

One of screen icon John Wayne’s finest twilight films, THE COWBOYS was a box-office hit in 1972.  John Wayne stars as a rancher who will lose his livestock unless he can transform a ragtag bunch of schoolboys into cowboys. When all his ranch hands go off in search of gold, the veteran rancher is forced to hire eleven teenage boys as trail hands, and in the process of driving 1200 cattle across 400 rough miles, the young cowboys become cowmen.

The label has received so many requests over the years for a Deluxe Edition of Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Joe Dante’s 1998 film SMALL SOLDIERS. An epic action/adventure score with a heroic march, Goldsmith had a lot of fun with this film and it shows. This is another epic expansion and remastering effort.  Varèse’s 40th Anniversary year and the 20th anniversary of the film seemed like the perfect time to revisit the film and its incredible score.

When teenager Alan (Gregory Smith) buys a set of Commando Elite action figures, he’s unaware that they have been programmed with military technology. The toys, including leader Chip (Tommy Lee Jones), spring to life and start taking their directives seriously, beginning by “killing” their enemies, the toy Gorgonites. But Archer (Frank Langella) and the Gorgonites won’t go down without a fight. Alan gets caught in the middle of the war, as does his neighbor and crush, Christy (Kirsten Dunst).

One of Varèse Sarabande’s most cherished recordings. GEORGES DELERUE: THE COMPLETE LONDON SESSIONS is such a priceless collection of his music that we couldn’t stand having its last reissue be out of print any longer.  The suites, recorded in London in the spring of 1989, were first issued as three individual volumes, each with a Bob Peak painting on the cover. In 2001 the label compiled the original three volumes into a 2-CD set called Great Composers: Georges Delerue, featuring a Matthew Peak photo of Paris on the cover. This new, remastered edition has returned to Bob Peak’s painting from the original London Sessions, Volume One.
