The Film Music of Phillip Lambro Released
Perseverance Records PRD 021

We here at Perseverance Records are huge fans of Phillip Lambro. The Film Music Of Phillip Lambro is a collection of four film scores released for the first time on CD. This collection features music from the Mineral King, which Lambro won an National Board Of Review award for best music for a documentary, Father Pat and Celebration. Also included is Lambro?s first feature film, Git! This western was released in 1964 and featured a great musical score for a not-so-memorable film.
Phillip Lambro began his career at 18 playing Chopin at Boston?s Symphony Hall. His concert works would be highly praised and performed by such classical legends as Herbert von Karajan, Leopold Stokowski, Roman Rudnytsky and Santiago Rodriguez. Not only has his music been praised but he is a writer as well.His scores for the films, Murph The Surf and Crypt Of The Living Dead are currently available from our label. As you can see, Phillip Lambro is a renaissance man and this newest collection will only cement his reputation for being a brilliant and underrated composer.

In other news:
Shipping costs added to Perseverance titles for US and Canada shipping

We are sad to report that due to rising costs we are no longer able to include US and Canadian shipping costs within the album price. As of February 1, 2008, the amount of @2.00 will be added to the price of the first CD shipped within North America. $1.00 for each CD after that. If you order before February 1st, you will still get your CDs with no additional shipping cost.

Coming Soon: Mutant - Expanded Score by Richard Band

Look for it in March. On Monday, I go into the studio to master the music we have taken from Richard's original master tapes, which he so kindly made available to us. There will ne a lot more music than there was on the Varese LP and the (identical) Intrada CD.

All the best,
