A spectacular song‐and‐dance revue filmed in luminous early Technicolor—rediscovered and newly restored Made during the early years of the movie musical, this exuberant revue was one of the most extravagant, eclectic, and technically ambitious Hollywood productions of its day. Starring the bandleader PAUL WHITEMAN, then widely celebrated as the King of Jazz, the film drew from Broadway variety shows of the time to present a spectacular array of sketches, performances by such acts as the Rhythm Boys (featuring a young BING CROSBY), and orchestral numbers overseen by Whiteman himself (including a larger‐than‐life rendition of GEORGE GERSHWIN’s “Rhapsody in Blue”)—all lavishly staged by veteran theatre director JOHN MURRAY ANDERSON and beautifully shot in early Technicolor. Long available only in incomplete form, King of Jazz appears here newly restored to its original glory, offering a fascinating snapshot of the way mainstream American popular culture viewed itself at the dawn of the 1930s. Features: New 4K digital restoration by Universal Pictures, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack New audio commentary featuring jazz and film critic Gary Giddins, music and cultural critic Gene Seymour, and musician and bandleader Vince Giordano New introduction by Giddins New interview with musician and pianist Michael Feinstein Four new video essays by authors and archivists James Layton and David Pierce on the development and making of King of Jazz Deleted scenes and alternate opening‐title sequence All Americans, a 1929 short film featuring a version of the “Melting Pot” number that was restaged for the finale of King of Jazz I Know Everybody and Everybody’s Racket, a 1933 short film featuring Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra Two Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons from 1930, featuring music and animation from King of Jazz

Death Waltz Recording Company Presents Werewolf Woman Original score on vinyl for the first time by Lallo Gori WEREWOLF WOMAN (original title LA LUPA MANNA) is a 1976 Italian exploitation sleazefest with the emphasis on sex and violence. A beautiful young woman channels an ancient family lycanthropy curse into her hatred of men stemmed from horrific abuse at a young age. She finds, seduces, and rips out the throats of all suitors she stumbles across. Its the kind of film that could (only?) be made by Italians in the '70s with serious story undertones giving way to ever more blatant sex, nudity and blood. The score by Coriolano Lallo Gori is absolutely wild and we cant believe it isnt more well-known than it is. Propulsive percussion, theremins, mono synths, funk and jazz collide to create an incredibly captivating listen. Wild synths bubbling over skittering jazz drums is thrilling enough, but Gori intersperses some beautiful mellow themes throughout to temper the madness.
