Two vinyl releases this week from ALL SCORE in Germany, the first has already been issued on a digital format VEGA 5 AVVENTURE NEL COSMO is the work of Mondo Sangue, and is a release that I reviewed n soundtrack supplement twenty one, it’s a worthy sequel to their other albums NO PLACE FOR A MAN and L’ISOLA DEI DANNATI both of which were released by ALL SCORE. The albums are in fact not soundtracks to movies, but scores for imagined films, its an interesting concept and one that has thus far yielded so much great music. The latest is in my opinion a tribute to composers Peter Thomas and to a degree Ennio Morricone, the styles, as the sounds employed within the work evokes both of these artists musical fingerprints. The vinyl release is available now from All Score, and the numbers are limited so hurry.
The second release from the German label is a Peter Thomas soundtrack, performed by the Peter Thomas Sound Orchester, THE BIG BOSS of course was released on CD a while ago and it has since been available on digital platforms, this I am certain is the first time that it has been available on LP record, and it is presented as the original motion picture soundtrack (revisited). The twenty-track album is impressively presented with some eye-catching cover art. Certainly worth having both of these gems in your collection. The style employed and the sound achieved by Thomas is uplifting and entertaining, the composer utilising a big band style and lacing it and fusing this with pop orientated compositions that also have to them a jazz flavour. Well worth adding to your collection.

Also coming very soon is a vinyl release of BACK TO THE FUTURE sadly not the score, but the original album tracks from the MCA LP that was issued at the time of the movie’s release some 35 years ago, and containing Alan Silvestri’s now iconic sounding central theme. The soundtrack was also later released CD by MCA. Mondo will release the album on November 28th. The artwork for the release is stunning and has been created by Poster Artist Drew Struzan. The release also boasts never before seen artwork that was created for the movie but never used. The recording has been re-mastered for this edition and is pressed on 180-gram coloured vinyl.
