November 8, 2012

Another Oscar-winner, this time for Best Song, David Shire's Norma Rae makes its premiere on this day. The score itself is probably not even all that familiar to most people (or anyone, for that matter) since so little of it was actually used in the film. So this release is a significant discovery, and a worthy and important one at that!

Shire's score is beautiful and noble. It is poignant and touching. As Shire is so often–it is masterful.

2009 is the 30th anniversary of Norma Rae so we thought we'd celebrate by premiering its never-heard score by one of film music's great treasures... David Shire.
