Coming Soon! Care For The Child Original Soundtrack

This soundtrack features 12 tracks remixed from the score of "Care For The Child", an indie documentary by Rob Ring., currently in pre-release preparation. The OST also features an original song by The MacQueens. The OST will be released soon! I'll post links here when it's available.

Several compositions from this film will also be released as sheet music, maybe some time in 2018. "Bridgeport Rag" is already available as a promo for the film. Grab a copy now!
