Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz Film Soundtracks Released on CD With Outtakes!

Lucy and Desi CD
announced in the 'Film Music and More' section of its website that Film Score Monthly has released a CD containing the soundtracks of "The Long, Long Trailer" and "Forever, Darling."

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz starred in "The Long, Long Trailer" in 1954 and "Forever, Darling" in 1956 respectively. Both films were released on DVD in 2006.

The soundtrack is "in stock and ready to ship" according to Film Score Monthly's website, but only 3,000 copies have been made.
