As part of Warner Bros.’ 90th Anniversary Celebration, La-La Land Records and Warner Bros. present the world premiere release of composer Robert Folk’s (CAN’T BUY ME LOVE, TOY SOLDIERS, ACE VENTURA 2: WHEN NATURE CALLS) original score to the 1984 comedy smash POLICE ACADEMY, starring Steve Guttenberg, George Gaynes, Kim Cattrall and G.W. Bailey, and directed by Hugh Wilson. Composer Folk’s military-march-infused score finds the perfect blend of broad comedy, urban action and endearing character to expertly support what would become an indelible 80’s comedy classic. In the process, Folk created one of cinema’s most enduring main themes! Produced by Robert Folk, Matt Verboys and Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this special limited release of 3000 units features the bonus track “El Bimbo,” performed by Jean-Marc Dompierre and His Orchestra (used in legendary fashion for the film’s Blue Oyster Bar), and in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer Daniel Schweiger, which include comments from the film’s composer, producer and director. David Fein’s art design salutes the new recruits! Commandant Lassard agrees, “This is a very, very, very wonderful score, which you will enjoy many, many, many times over!”
