ORDER “BLACK BEAUTY: LIMITED EDITION” starting Oct 8th at 12pm PST at

La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. and WEA present the latest reamstered and expanded title in our collection of notable scores celebrating Warner Bros.’ 90th Anniversary – the original motion picture score to the 1994 family drama BLACK BEAUTY, starring Sean Bean and David Thewlis, and directed by Caroline Thompson. Lush, gorgeous, but also stirring and strong in spirit, Mr. Elfman’s score is much like the film’s titular creature and is considered to be one of his finest works. This deluxe treatment, expanded to nearly 79 minutes, finally gives this important film score the release it has always warranted. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by James Nelson, this special release, limited to 3000 Units, features attractive art design by Dan Goldwasser and exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer Jeff Bond, with comments from the composer and the film’s director. A must for all film music enthusiasts!

I'm glad they didn't put the border over the original soundtrack cover like they've done to past WEA score reissues like B89. BR, BF, etc. Looking forward to this as soon as the other Elfman title's released next month.
