It has taken eight years and over 130 CDs but FSM finally releases a score by the great Ennio Morricone: Guns for San Sebastian (1968), commonly known as a western but more accurately a historical adventure set in Mexico circa 1750. The film stars Anthony Quinn as an outlaw who is mistaken for a priest and protects a humble village against a violent tribe of Indians; Charles Bronson is the antagonist and Anjanette Comer the love interest. Filmed in Mexico, the international production is a sunburnt, action-packed look at a violent time in colonial Latin American history. The late 1960s were an especially fertile period for Ennio Morricone, whose prolific genius has enhanced hundreds of films for over 40 years. By 1968 Morricone had already scored the groundbreaking Dollars trilogy for Sergio Leone—establishing the revolutionary style for the "spaghetti" westerns—and Guns for San Sebastian preceded their western masterpiece, Once Upon a Time in the West.
The score to this beautiful movie (released as All About My Mother in the U.S.) was composed by Alberto Iglesias and recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic under the production of Lucio Godoy. The haunting music leads the perfect mood to the film, which received critical acclaim at the Cannes Film festival and elsewhere.
The latest soundtrack album from American composer Steve Jablonsky will be digitally released tomorrow by La-La Land Records, with a limited edition 2-CD set to follow on July 11th, 2017. The film is the latest installment in the 'Transformers' series, which Jablonsky has scored previous films for.
Another "Despicable Me" sequel means more new music from Pharrell Williams!! The latest soundtrack album is currently slated to be released June 23rd, 2017, Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment.
Jim Steinman (the melodramatic writer behind Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell) is the author of many of the tracks here, and they have his typical rock & roll Sturm und Drang, especially when the backup group consists of members of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. Also on hand are The Blasters, Maria McKee, and Ry Cooder. The album's hit single turned out to be Dan Hartman's "I Can Dream about You".
