La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Sony Music present the world premiere CD release of acclaimed composer Dimitri Tiomkin’s (GIANT, 55 DAYS AT PEKING, THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL) original motion picture score to the 1957 Paramount Pictures romantic drama WILD IS THE WIND, starring Anna Magnani, Anthony Quinn and Anthony Franciosa, and directed by George Cukor. This 2-CD set, with a running time of almost 108 minutes, gives one of Tiomkin’s forgotten gems its well-deserved deluxe treatment, featuring the original film score, first-time ever released, on Disc 1 and the remastered, original Columbia Records LP re-recording on Disc 2. The film score contains music that was dialed out of the film prior to its release, while the LP re-recording kicks-off with the Johnny Mathis-performed title song. Produced by Lukas Kendall and Didier C. Deutsch, meticulously mastered by Doug Schwartz (Disc 1) and Tim Sturges (Disc 2), and restored by Chris Malone (from ¼’’ mono masters), this special release, limited to 2500 units, features exclusive, in-depth liner notes from writer Frank K. DeWald and classic art design by Dan Goldwasser.
