Music from the feature film A Fistful of Fingers (Edgar Wright) has been re-mastered by Doug Schwartz at Mulholland Music.




Tadlow Music's spectacular and revealing re-recording of Maurice Jarre's 1962 score to David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia has just been released. It features François playing all three ondes Martenot parts.

this album ...is simply magnificent! The music is so close to the original as heard in the film that one can hardly hear any difference. ...a first class job, ...the technical sound quality is very powerful and among the best ever recorded. ...you will not be disappointed with this album. If this is the first time you are going to get the Lawrence of Arabia music - go for this one.
