Maybe it's some kind of condensed, 8CD version of that infamous Elfman Music Box/Zoetrope set.
After the $500 or whatever it cost to buy that thing, $120 for just the essentials, less all the ballast, would seem quite a bargain.

Never say never I guess, but LLL did say they were done with Burton-Elfman after Planet of the Apes.

Given that LLL's two-disc release of the much better known "Lost in Space," which featured a lot of John Williams, was famously a poor seller, it's really hard to imagine LLL rolling the dice on a pricey "Voyage" set four times the size of that one (and without a name brand composer, besides Goldsmith's already released score for the pilot).

That's largely because LLL's marketing is second to none. No, I mean that literally. There's None, then there's LLL, then there's Everybody Else in the World. I've been an avid soundtrack collector for 30 years and I didn't hear about the LIS set until it was on clearance, and even then I only heard about it by accident. I posted that it was available on the Hobbytalk and Starship Modeler sites, where there are a lot of Irwin Allen fans, and only one person there mentioned that they already had it. The very existence of such a set was news to everyone else.
LLLL needs to approach fans of the shows a little more aggressively. Tracking down where the fans congregate, like modelling forums such as Britmodeller, Hobbytalk, Starship Modeller, Cultman, and whatever the main Japanese sf modelling sites may be, and 3000 copy sets like LIS and Voyage would sell very respectably. There are a lot more fans of tacky 60s sci fi shows than just Trekkies.

Haven't heard anything that would push 3000 copies at $120 yet.

Neither have I. To sell 3000 copies at that sort of price, the content would have to have very broad appeal among the soundtrack-collecting community.

I wonder if it's something that might appeal primarily to consumers who aren't necessarily soundtrack fans (a set from something with a strong 80s cult following, like the animated Masters of the Universe or Transformers series)?

I hope it's Conti's NECESSARY ROUGHNESS! I know 8 discs is kind of a lot, but maybe it's one track to a cd?

Hm...80´s Transformers it would be so great to have this one released, but MV mentioned some troubles with right holders or something with Hasbro.

Can you imagine?
2CD for TRANSFORMERS, 2CD for GI JOE, 2CD for CENTURIONS and 2CD for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS.
8CD´s for 80´s animated seriessmile

MD I like the cut of your jib. A Hasbro set like that would be awesome.

The classic TV series "Rawhide" had eight seasons.
Wishful thinking.

There are at least 39 credited scores on "Rawhide". The full series may not have 8CD's worth of scoring. Unless we start counting library music, stock music tracked from other shows, etc.

I'm going to re-iterate my guess of a Twilight Zone series boxset. That's got a fairly broad appeal amongst the soundtrack fan community and could easily span 8 CDs. Plus, it would fit with LLL already having done the similar Outer Limits boxset.

Chris.

You're a funny guy, Henry. big grin

It will be interesting to see what the set is. I think people might be too caught up on the quantity count. I'm sure La-La Land is in the position to have many copies sit around for a long while. For all we know profit might be achieved after just 1000 or so units sold.

To be honest with you we dislike selling out quickly. We would rather sell 50-75% within the first 60 days (so we can make our investment back with SOME profit) and then have the rest sell out with in the next 12-24 months. It doesn't work out that way MOST of the time, but its our ultimate goal. We hate seeing cds treated like they have cooties. wink

Ok, everyone talks about this Big Box... But I have a little question about possibly John Debney's "Lair" - it is any chance for this probably in this year ?

I totally forgot about this. It was strongly suggested this was coming out over a year ago.

"Hello, Lalaland! Gentlemen, is there a possibility to release John Debney's Lair? This great epic score deserves a CD release and I think it would be a great company to already released Medal of Honor, Socom or Crysis 2 wscores. Debney's score is the kind of music we love the most and I think a limited release would be a great idea. Can we count on it? Can you say something about it? PS: Thanks for The Untouchables, great release!"
