Special Soundtrack Labels

These guys are sparing no expense to bring us demanding film score fans what we want: Exciting releases of our most beloved scores composed by our favorite composers. Here, you can find links to their sites with the excellent releases:

Varese Sarabande Records: They are the most prolific label for releases of recent filmmusic gems. Their producer Robert Townson is working on releasing special Club Titles which are usually limited to a certain amount of copies, ranging from 1000 to 3000 copies per title depending on the possible demand.

Film Score Monthly: Many fans of older film scores from before 1970 would have to live without many great releases if FSM would not exist. Lukas Kendall's FSM is actually a magazine but they are also releasing limited editions of classic film scores on a monthly basis. Their output has been incredible and many great scores from the past have seen the light of day thanks to FSM.

Intrada Records: A label devoted to the music of composer Bruce Broughton. If it would not be for producer Douglas Fake and his crew at Intrada, Broughton fans would probably miss a lot of the composer's excellent music. Intrada also releases other interesting titles by other composers regularly in their Special Collection series. Some time ago, they introduced a series of Signature Editions which contains scores composed for smaller scale films by big-name composers.

Prometheus Records: A belgium filmmusic magazine which is releasing soundtracks and limited edition CDs supported by producer Ford A. Thaxton. They have had an incredible output recently. Their website seems to be dead but they are still busy with new releases.

La-La-Land Records: They mainly release television scores and few film scores. Keep an eye on their site, because La-La-Land records (what a name) sometimes has some nice surprise releases in the making.
