La-La Land Records presents the premiere CD release of composer John Scott's (THE FINAL COUNTDOWN, SHOOT TO KILL, NORTH DALLAS FORTY) magnificent orchestral score to the 1984 Warner Bros. feature film GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, LORD OF THE APES, starring Christopher Lambert, Andie MacDowell, Ralph Richardson, Ian Holm and James Fox, directed by Hugh Hudson. Scott's brilliant score bursts with the violence and vitality of the jungle, yet is also heart-moving and surprisingly gentle. This re-issue was produced by MV Gerhard and remastered by James Nelson from the original Warner Bros. ¼ inch album masters. While no elements were secured to give this wonderful score the expanded treatment it deserves, we were able to pull the OVERTURE and END CREDITS off the original magnetic track and present it here as Bonus Material. CD Booklet features in-depth liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond. This release is limited to 3000 Units.

John Scott has historically been underrepresented on both LP and CD, but his rich musical material is slowly making its way to collectors. Greystoke received a CD release in the mid-eighties, but it's long out-of-print and nearly impossible to find.
