From Ray Faiola, posted at Film Score Monthly's website:
Just a note to my fellow film fans that Chelsea Rialto Studios' latest classic film score release, Dark Victory, is now available for ordering from Screen Archives Entertainment.

Dark Victory features an exquisite musical score by Max Steiner and this new CD features virtually the complete score, including the song "Oh Give Me Time For Tenderness," as restored from the composer's personal acetate disc collection.

Licensed from Warner Bros. and presented by the Brigham Young University Film Music Archives, the album contains a full-color 32-page booklet with a complete production history as chronicled by renowned film historian Rudy Behlmer (Inside Warner Bros.).

To order, please visit Screen Archives.
Varese Sarabande has announced they will release John Debney's score for the CG-animated Ant Bully (starring the voice talents of Bruce Campbell!) on August 1. They are also set to release another round of Club CDs. Here's the cryptic blurb from their website:
