My wife loves MAD MEN. I've watched it a few times, but never have time to invest in the 60s awesomeness fully. That said, I've always been a fan of the music, and now the jazzy tunes from composer DAVID CARBONARA is coming home. On August 13, Silva Screen will release MAD MEN: ON THE ROCKS - Music From the Television Series. Available for pre-order on iTunes now, this 23-track collection also includes "A Beautiful Mine," RJD2's original theme.

Regular readers of The Rock Father know that I'm a sucker for pop culture - especially for the stuff I grew up on in the 80s. Now, the folks at Silva Screen Records have tapped into that again with the release of 100 GREATEST TV THEMES VOLUME 3, a four-disc, 100-track collection of songs ranging from the recent to the classic.  These are new recordings performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, London Music Works and Michigan Music Works. Take a look at the tracklisting below...

100greatestAfter releasing their first 100 GREATEST FILM THEMES collection in 2007, Silva Screen Records followed it up with another 100 in 2010. Now comes 100 GREATEST FILM THEMES - TAKE 3, a fresh batch of important pieces of film music performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and London Music Works. This six-disc collection arrived on iTunes today, and I've got the full tracklisting posted below.

The folks over at Silva Screen Records just hit The Rock Father with details on a pair of albums that they've issued digitally this week, both of which present new versions of some classic Disney themes. THE ESSENTIAL DISNEY COLLECTION features 27 timeless Disney classics, recorded by London Music Works and an array of current vocal artists including Helena Blackman (How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?), Helen Hobson (Mamma Mia, Aspects of Love and many more) and Keith Ferreira (The Singing Accountant).
