As you all know, in this blog I have included rare soundtracks that are not released yet, so it is great when the official soundtracks arrive: there are two world-premiere releases from composers Henry Mancini and Frank DeVol.
- The Man Who Loved Women – Music by Henry Mancini
One might think that all of the soundtracks from a famous composer such as Mancini has already been released. Sadly, that’s not true. There are some that are still waiting for their CD release and some, like this one, that are being released in any format. This soundtrack is released by Varese Sarabarande for their CD Club for June 30, so pre-orders are being accepted. They included the full soundtrack plus a couple of bonus tracks. Check for the full info at Varese’s site.
- Emperor of the North / Caprice – Music by Frank DeVol
More surprisingly, DeVol has a release by Intrada with these two soundtracks that have never been released in any format before. As they say, Caprice is not complete. They included the surviving tracks from master tapes. The main title was very catchy and spy-like. It looks like it is not included, so listen to it, taken from the movie. More information at Intrada’s site.
Thank you very much Varese and Intrada for these great limited-edition releases. I have ordered both, of course, as any Mancini, DeVol, or just general soundtrack fan would do!
