La-La Land Records presents the world premiere release of the original score to Columbia Pictures' 1980 rollicking cult comedy classic USED CARS, starring Kurt Russell, Gerrit Graham, Frank McRae and Jack Warden, produced and co-written by Bob Gale and directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis. Composer Patrick Williams (THE TOY, SWING SHIFT, ALL OF ME, CUBA, HERO AT LARGE) fashions a spirited orchestral score with rock, western and blues flourishes, all of it anchored with an energetic main theme which also provides the foundation for the title song performed by Bobby Bare. Included as well is the mostly unused orchestral score by composer Ernest Gold (INHERIT THE WIND, EXODUS, IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD): Parts of Gold's adaptations of "The Stars And Stripes Forever" and "Hail To The Chief" made it into the final cut of the film, but the majority of his dramatically different approach to the score is presented here for the first time anywhere. Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and mastered by James Nelson, this limited edition release of 2000 units includes exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Randall D. Larson. It's a great CD "Trust Us!"
