HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK (CD)
Composed by: John Williams

NEAR MINT - UNSEALED - ONLY 1 AVAILABLE

Varèse Sarabande celebrates the tenth anniversary of: "Home Alone 2: Lost In New York" with a very special 2 CD - Deluxe Edition - release. While it may seem odd that a score only ten years old even requires a deluxe edition so soon, "Home Alone 2" is an unusual case indeed. This new CD features cues never before available, including alternate, never-before-heard cues that take a radically different approach to the ones that actually ended up in the film. Additionally, and very importantly, this release corrects a very odd anomaly that afflicted the original Home Alone 2 CD. The original soundtrack release was not mastered from the first-generation session masters and, the tape that it was mastered from, was even running at the wrong speed! The sound improvement that this completely new, composer-approved, mix and mastering renders is nothing short of astounding. It’s like listening to the entire score for the first time. The rich, full-bodied orchestra is made all the more glorious with John Williams' four breathtaking, original, and now much-loved carols; "Somewhere In My Memory," "Star of Bethlehem," "Christmas Star" and "Merry Christmas," "Merry Christmas." They’re all here - the cues you’ve always loved, the cues you’ve always wanted, cues you never knew existed, and all sounding better than ever. The deluxe 20-page full color booklet features extensive liner notes and many film stills. It’s a CD Club holiday spectacular!

John Hughes and Chris Columbus repeat their best-selling formula from the first "Home Alone" film with this sequel. Once again Kevin McCallister's (Macaulay Culkin) family leave him behind, only now he gets on a flight to New York instead of going with his family to Miami. Kevin manages to hail a cab and is delivered to the doorsteps of the Plaza Hotel, where, using his father's credit card, he rents out a suite and has the time of his life -- although a smarmy hotel clerk (Tim Curry) and bellboy (Rob Schneider) eye him with suspicion. But ingenious Kevin keeps them at bay, using the same tomfoolery he applied to his uncle in the first picture. He takes time out from his consumer debauch to chat with a friendly old toy-store magnate (Eddie Bracken) and pontificate to a homeless Pigeon Lady (Brenda Fricker) on the meaning of Christmas. But then he runs into his old enemies Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern).When he finds out that they plan on robbing the old man's toy store on Christmas Eve, he mans the battle stations once again, complete with electric prods, flames of fire, and sundry blunt instruments. Also stars Catherine O'Hara and John Heard. 1992
