DOLORES CALIBORNE and THE STAND make up Varese Sarabande’s First 2020 CD Club Releases

Varese Sarabande Records announces their first CD Club batch of 2020 – both for moved based on Stephen King novels: Danny Elfman’s DOLORES CLAIBORNE (1995) and W. G. Snuffy Walden’s  THE STAND.

One of the most important and impressive film scores of Danny Elfman’s career, DOLORES CLAIBORNE is an often overlooked and grossly under-appreciated score from the maestro – adapted from King’s novel of the same name and directed by Taylor Hackford. As the narrative unfolds, various pieces of the puzzle are revealed one by one and Elfman’s score is right there to cajole each perfect piece into place. This 2 CD Deluxe Edition greatly expands the soundtrack from 9 to 31 tracks! Limited to 2500 copies.

W.G. Snuffy Walden’s THE STAND 2-CD Deluxe Edition is a remarkably powerful and gracefully emotive work that deserves attention and appreciation. Containing both the 1994 soundtrack release and the then-previously unreleased bonus disc compiled for the Stephen King Soundtrack Collection box set in 2017, the score is constructed around five distinctive character themes plus a variety of ambient and aggressive motifs and musical designs, and a bit of roots-styled traveling music. Limited to 1000 copies.

Both on sale now on
