Just in time for the holidays, Perseverance Records is proud to announce the reissue of the Three Amigos soundtrack. Originally released by Warner Bros Records in 1987, it features a mix of score and songs performed in the movie by its stars, Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase. Randy Newman wrote the songs and performs on a track as the "Singing Bush". The legendary Elmer Bernstein composed the score.
Previously reissued by Collectors Choice Music, this was one of their best selling releases. We felt that a lot of people missed out on this release so we asked Warner if we could put it back out. Fortunately they agreed as the rights languished due to the Collectors Choice label being shut down by its new owners who didn't want to own a record label and only wanted the catalog and distribution assets. We are proud to add this title to our growing catalog of excellent Warner Bros LP reissues.
Some facts about this recording:
• As usual, Warner Music handed us the masters. The sound is excellent.
• Limited to 3,000 CDs.
• This is a straight reissue of the original album (or even the Collectors Choice CD)
• Reasonably priced CD.
• Original LP art. We did improve upon the art that Collectors Choice used. If you've purchased any of our previous Warner LP reissues, then you know what we mean by this comparison to the CCM releases.
