  • that woman built my childhood.
  • La-La Land have done it again! They recently released a 4 disc set of music from Superman: The Animated Series. Hopefully it sells well enough that future volumes can roll out with more music from that series.
  • So La-La Land Records has gone on to release the score to Willard (minus Crispin Glover doing the cover of Michael Jackson's "Ben" - which, depending on who you ask, is unessential as far as the score is concerned but I'm sure completionists let out a collective sigh all the same) and July 16th, much to my surprise, they're releasing Shirley's score for a film I imagine most only ever saw on cable airings in the last two decades (myself included) - Turbulence. Those two releases, based on the fact that they even actually happened at all, make me more and more optimistic toward the likes of Black Christmas, Final Destination and so many others seeing the light of day on official releases. 2013 is definitely a good year to be a Shirley Walker fan.
  • :D
  • Also, here's to hoping for more releases of her work that hasn't seen an actual release thus far - definitely holding out hope for Superman and V.I.P.E.R. along with Final Destination 2. Maybe one day even Black Christmas. Ah... if only.
  • Both volumes are on sale now - with the added bonus of Mask of the Phantasm being on sale before they go out of print. Definitely recommended if you can afford any (or all) of them.
  • oh, what a fantastic woman
  • Tracks cut from the re-issue are the 14 minute Gotham City Overture which opened the first disc on the original volume 1 release and the closing interview track of Shirley commenting on how she worked with Danny's theme/etc. (Music of the Bat 101) on the second disc. Still a recommended buy if you otherwise didn't have the chance to get the first release of it.
  • Fantastic news rolling out of La-La Land Records recently - a re-issue of the first Animated Series volume (minus one track from each disc) and more importantly, a huge 4-disc second volume!
  • She did such a great job on Final Destination's score. [3] So dark & mysterious, the only OST that gives me the creeps while listening to at nights, lol.
