To kick off our CD Club releases for 2007 we offer one of the biggest releases to yet come from our Club. Bill Conti�s score for 1984�s The Karate Kid is another of the quintessential scores from the 80s that everyone remembers. It is also a score that left film music fans of the time absolutely bewildered that such a famous score for such a successful film could go unreleased. Conti�s score is, at turns, charming, beautiful, pensive and powerful. It hits all the right notes and features none other than Zamfir himself on pan flute, representing the mystic side of Pat Morita�s Mr. Miyagi. The Karate Kid was directed by Conti�s long-time friend and frequent collaborator John G. Avildsen. Along with Ralph Macchio, who played karate kid Daniel Larusso in the first three films, The Karate Kid starred the ever-adorable Elizabeth Shue.

Conti returned for The Karate Kid, Part II with an even bigger score, expanding on his original themes and creating new ones. Even though Macchio and director Avildsen left the series after the third film, Conti returned to conclude his work on the franchise in 1994 with The Next Karate Kid, which now starred Hilary Swank as the new marshal arts expert in training.

Conti�s music for the series is absolutely stunning. Unbelievably, not one of the four scores has ever been released before. In the spirit of �in for a penny, in for a pound� we decided to rescue not just Conti�s original classic but to prepare the definitive Karate Kid box set to redress the entire situation. For Conti�s fans, this one is nirvana!
