La-La Land Records announces:
first ever CD release the John Morris score

La-La Land Records and Warner Bros. present the world premiere release of John Morris’ (BLAZING SADDLES, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, CLUE) original motion picture score to the 1979 classic comedy THE IN-LAWS, starring Peter Falk, Alan Arkin and Richard Libertini, and directed by Arthur Hiller.

Acclaimed composer John Morris finds the perfect pitch with his rousing and delightful orchestral score -- supporting story, character and action with verve, while expertly enhancing, but never stepping on, all the big laughs. Infectious themes abound – the main title being one for the ages! All these years later, the IN-LAWS still holds up as one of the great American comedies – and now finally, Morris’ wonderful score gets its due!

Produced by Matt Verboys and Neil S. Bulk and mastered by James Nelson, this special release, limited to 1500 Units, features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Randall D. Larson and smile-ready art direction by David C. Fein.

Soundtrack album is available now from La-La Land Records as well as all specialized retailers.

Kritzerland Records announces:
first ever CD release a John Morris musical

Richard Llewellyn’s 1939 novel, How Green Was My Valley, was a popular success, so much so that Twentieth Century-Fox purchased the screen rights immediately and released their Academy Award-winning film version just two years later. The team responsible for musicalizing How Green Was My Valley was first-time Broadway composer John Morris, and first-time book and lyric writers Gerald Freedman and Morris.

A Time for Singing opened on Broadway on May 21, 1966 after ten previews. Over the years, a cult has grown for A Time for Singing, thanks to its excellent cast recording that was issued by Warner Bros. Records. The score is beloved by hordes of theater music fans and the album was always a sought-after collector’s item. It has taken a long time to bring it to CD, and we’re thrilled to be the ones to do it. Perhaps the show will be rediscovered – certainly the score is worthy of rediscovery, with John Morris’s lush and beautiful music, and excellent lyrics by Morris and Freedman.

Limited edition of 1500 copies is available through Kritzerland's website as well as many specialised retailers.
