His list of album projects includes BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, CASINO ROYALE, TRUE GRIT, the 6 disc La La Land Records set of music from the TV Series MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS for Intrada Records, the mammoth 15 disc set of music from STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES and many more."

"Mastering Engineer Chris Malone joins Yavar and David for a detailed, wide-ranging conversation about the myriad complexities of film music restoration, memories of tackling his first restoration project for Film Score Monthly, working on Goldsmith soundtrack releases like Take Her, She's Mine and Archer/Warning Shot, the joys and challenges of restoring scores by composers like Henry Mancini, Nino Rota, and John Barry, and much more.
It's an interview loaded with both educational insights and memorable stories, and is sure to fascinate film music enthusiasts of all sorts.
You can consume the whole thing in one big helping, or you can break it up into a half-dozen modest portions, but you won't want to miss it. Enjoy!"
