Varese Sarabande has announced it will re-release old and out-of-print soundtracks it had previously published under its new 'Varese Encore' series.

Founded in the late 70s, Varese Sarabande has released thousands of soundtrack albums, many of which are out of print and now only available second-hand.

The label plans to remaster each re-released album as well as update its packaging, but does not anticipate changes to original album tracks. According to a company blog post, their aim is to make out-of-print albums "available to a new generation (or two) who have never had an opportunity to buy certain titles from any place other than eBay."

The first batch of 'Varese Encore' titles are scheduled to be announced on May 14. These titles will be added to the Soundtrack.Net database as soon as they are known.
