La-La Land Records, WEA and Warner Bros. present the latest in our expanded archival collection, Jerry Goldsmith's original motion picture score to the 1993 feature film DENNIS THE MENACE, starring Walter Matthau, Joan Plowright and Mason Gamble, and directed by Nick Castle. Expanded with more than 20 minutes of previously unreleased music, plus bonus tracks, Goldsmith's (PATTON, ALIEN, POLTERGEIST, FIRST KNIGHT) heartwarming and whimsical score, considered to be one of his most entertaining 90's works, is a sheer delight - and the undeniable heartbeat of this sweet John Hughes-produced, live-action telling of Hank Ketcham's beloved comic strip character. Produced by Neil S. Bulk and Bruce Botnick (the score's original recording engineer), this special limited edition release of 3000 units has been mastered by Botnick from the original, first generation three-track digital mixes. Exclusive, in-depth liners from film music writer Jeff Bond, (with comments from with Goldsmith's agent, Richard Kraft), and David Fein's playful art design wrap it all up in wondrous style.
