LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
OUT OF PRINT
THIS IS A COMPACT DISC RELEASE
La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox present the world premiere release of composer Andrew Belling’s (STARCHASER) original motion picture score to the 1977 Twentieth Century Fox animated cult classic WIZARDS, written and directed by Ralph Bakshi. For this still-timely, post-apocalyptic fantasy regarding a pint-sized wizard who saves the universe from fascist mutants, Belling conjures a dynamic mix of synth and live players, creating a one-of-a-kind musical soundscape that inventively melds dramatic narrative scoring with experimental rock, jazz and electronics. Produced by Nick Redman and Ford A. Thaxton and meticulously mastered by James Nelson with input from Belling, this special limited release of 2000 Units includes the never-before-heard Full Version of the song "Time Will Tell" performed by Susan Anton. Exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Randall Larson take you behind the scenes of this beloved gem and its remarkable score - and includes new comments from the composer and director.
NOTE: Some musical elements of WIZARDS were not found - most significantly the main title (a delicate synth-choral melody that runs over the brief opening titles). Additionally, some brief transition cues were also missing. However, the primary components of the score as it was recorded are all here, PRESENTED IN MONO, and featuring several unused cues that were found to have survived.
