American Gangster
Music by Marc Streitenfeld
Varese Sarabande 302 066 874 2 (US)
18 Tracks 38:54 mins

A score CD release by Varese Sarabande was announced long ago, and indeed I reviewed an advance disc of the score back on 15th November, but only now, to coincide with awards season, where the score earned a BAFTA nomination, and also the film's release on DVD, do we have it.
I would refer you to said review for my impressions on the score, but just to say that around 10 minutes have been added to that 22-minute sampling, plus three source tracks, two by Hank Shocklee and one by Harry Garfield, have been added to the disc, to make a nice, tuneful ending.
