BIG BAD MAMA II - Original Soundtrack by Chuck Cirino
Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com presents the original motion picture soundtrack to BIG BAD MAMA II, featuring music composed by Chuck Cirino for the 1987 action comedy directed by Jim Wynorski, written by R.J. Robertson and Wynorski, starring Angie Dickenson, Robert Culp, Danielle Brisebois, Julie McCullough, Bruce Glover and Ace Mask.
In 1974 Roger Corman released BIG BAD MAMA, a 1930s-era gangster action-sexploitation film, through his New World Pictures company. The movie was about Wilma McClatchie (Angie Dickinson) and her daughters, Billie Jean and Polly, who go on a crime spree, get caught up with a bank robber (Tom Skerritt), then dump him for a soothing grifter (William Shatner), but it all ends up in tragedy for Mama McClatchie. Thirteen years later, Jim Wynorski, a young director with three fantasy-horror movies under his belt—the latter two of which, CHOPPING MALL and DEATHSTALKER II, had been released by Corman’s Concorde Pictures—became interested in making a sequel to the 1974 movie. Thus was born BIG BAD MAMA II, released by Concorde in 1987. BIG BAD MAMA II gave a renewed life to the characters, revisited its time period, attitude, humor, and brief moments of tasteful if obligatory nudity, and has gone on to become something of a cult film over the last three decades.
Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring BIG BAD MAMA II to compact disc for the first time, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author Randall Larson, with the participation of the composer and the director.
BIG BAD MAMA II is a limited edition release of 500 units. Suggested retail price is $17.95. As a special offer, the first 50 people to order the album from the record label’s website will have their copy autographed by the composer at no additional charge.
