ScoreKeeper Has Five CDs of David Newman's THE PHANTOM To Give Away!

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here with one of two remaining soundtrack giveaways scheduled before the world, uhhh…er…I mean, year comes to an end. First up is a really fantastic comic-adapted score for a film that doesn't get much love. It's David Newman's rousing score for THE PHANTOM (1996) starring Billy Zane, Kristy Swanson and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Regardless of what you may think about the film itself, it's tough to argue against the merits of Newman's work. It's a bold adventure score full of well-balanced orchestral and electronic textures harkening back to a golden age of cinema. It has a "dark hero" tone reminiscent of Elfman's BATMAN (1989) where rousing themes signal the rise and fall of this mysterious character.  


La-La Land's expanded edition includes almost thirty minutes more music than the original 1996 album soundtrack release.

I have five CDs of this epic score and I need to find new homes for all of them. What do you need to do to put yourself in position to be a winner?

Email me at using the subject: I ONCE KILLED THE PHANTOM and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your best reason for liking or disliking this movie. I'll collect all the entries, then randomly select the five winners who will then receive a CD of THE PHANTOM by David Newman courtesy of La-La Land Records. The deadline for submission is Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 11:59pm CST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

For more information including audio samples check out La-La Land's web site HERE.

Hurry before you have to kill the Phantom again...
