Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the PAUL CHIHARA COLLECTION, VOLUME 2, featuring music composed, conducted and produced for three films by Paul Chihara (DEATH RACE 200O, PRINCE OF THE CITY, CHINA BEACH). Composer Paul Chihara has had one foot in film scoring (having composed scores for over 90 motion pictures and television series) and the other in concert music for more than 45 years. Currently, at the age of 80, he shows no signs of slowing down, remaining active composing concert music and interacting with music, musical theater, and musicians throughout the world.

The three scores collected on this second volume of Chihara’s film music have a lot in common, musically. Each are from the mid 1980s, each demonstrates the composer’s deft articulation with melody, harmony, and the seamless integration of popular, folk, and classical styles, although the movies themselves are quite different.

Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring Paul Chihara’s music for A WALK ON THE MOON, THE LAST DAYS OF FRANK AND JESSE JAMES and NOON WINE to compact disc for the first time on THE PAUL CHIHARA COLLECTION, VOLUME 2, mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author Randall D. Larson, including the participation of the composer. THE PAUL CHIHARA COLLECTION, VOLUME 2 is a limited edition of 500 units.
