INTRADA Announces Quincy Jones' MACKENNA'S GOLD/IN COLD BLOOD

Announces:

MACKENNA'S GOLD/IN COLD BLOOD Composed and Conducted by QUINCY JONES
INTRADA Special Collection 391 Intrada presents two Quincy Jones' scores one CD  — MacKenna's Gold premieres alongside his Oscar-nominated In Cold Blood.  Up first is Mackenna’s Gold, freshly mixed from the 8-track record album recording sessions and using the 2-track RCA album masters, making a powerful argument for Jones’ versatility. While he undeniably brought his pop expertise to bear in the groovy keyboards and drums, his orchestral acumen and training with Nadia Boulanger are on full display. Whether in the quasi-religioso feeling and harmonically rich writing or the harrowing percussion and brass featured in this score, his mastery is clear.  Jones partnered with Carl Foreman and Puerto Rican singer José Feliciano, in his film debut, to create “Ole Turkey Buzzard.” The ballad charts the course of a raptor who waits hungrily for the death that follows where men lust for gold.

INTRADA Announces Richard Band's TERRORVISION

TERRORVISION Original Score by RICHARD BANDOriginal Songs by THE FIBONACCISINTRADA Special Collection 393

I knew I wanted a truly’ 60s-style sound not unlike that in a Lost in Space episode because the movie had a very unique look
and color about it and the humorous (though more contemporary) subject matter dictated a VERY untraditional approach.
-- Richard Band Richard Band approached his scoring of Empire Pictures’ cosmic sci-fi/monster vehicle TerrorVision (1986), produced by family members Charles and Albert Band, with an array of synthesized colors—both tonal and otherworldly—in keeping with the quirky tale of the Putterman family and their monster-inhabited TV set. Restless Records issued a short-lived LP in 1986, with one side devoted to the five vocal and instrumental tracks written and performed by The Fibonaccis and the other side offering highlights from Richard Band’s original score. For the premiere release of this score on CD, Intrada accessed the original ½” three-channel an…

Frenemies Are Brought Together in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23!

The tables have turned. No longer an Avenger, Deadpool is living a life of crime. There’s only one super hero who can guide him to the right path and that’s…Spider-Man?! That’s the Marvel Legacy story that will begin in November, when Robbie Thompson (Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer’s Supreme) teams with artist Chris Bachalo for SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23.

The Merc with the Mouth and the webslinger may have their differences, but they’ve got one thing in common: they’re both at odds with each other. And despite Spider-Man’s best efforts, Deadpool is back to his old ways – he’s become an arms dealer in the absence of S.H.I.E.L.D.

But Spider-Man determined to bring his frenemy back to the right side of the law. And when a familiar villain from Spider-Man’s past makes an appearance, the two super heroes have no choice but to team up to save the world!

SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #23 arrives in comic shops this November!

MAYOR FISK! Kingpin Rules In DAREDEVIL #595!

There’s a new mayor in town…Mayor Fisk, that is. After his rise to the top, Matt Murdock’s classic foe takes center stage as Marvel Legacy hits DAREDEVIL #595, written by Charles Soule with art by Stefano Landini.
Matt Murdock has always had the law on his side, but now that Manhattan is under new rule, the tables have been turned: and it’s the vigilante hero who is on the outside of the law, with the Mayor of Crime ruling over Manhattan.
“"MAYOR FISK is really about just one thing: Kingpin becomes...the king,” says series writer Charles Soule. “On page 1 of the story, Wilson Fisk has already become the mayor, with all of the power and resources that come with the position. So, Daredevil has lost the one thing he thought he could always rely on, the place he was sworn to protect: New York City. From there, we see how, and if, he can fight to win it back.”
“The entire DEFENDERS Legacy storyline, KINGPINS OF NEW YORK, is about the power vacuum left in the underworld now that Fisk has …
