What a great job Kritzerland has done in getting us choice nuggets from the Elmer Bernstein filmography. Can't wait to see what's next there! So many other great composers as well, Newman and Waxman, Raksin and North, Mancini and Previn, Friedhofer and Duning, too many to name. Two thumbs up from another guy who thinks they shot out the lights in 1962.



What happened in 1962?

I hope titles like Poltergeist II and Alien Nation wont be the exception to the rule and thanks for doing them justice.

I'll second this. I'm always keeping an eye out for when Kritzerland releases an 80's/90's score. I know they don't come as often as I'd like but when they do they never fail to disappoint. From the sound to the packaging and pricing - you name it, all top notch!

Hats off to a wonderful year Bruce and continued success next year and beyond.

I totally agree with the praise of Kritzerland. And isn't it refreshing to see a positive thread on this site?

Much from Fox, including what will be a rather spectacular first release for 2014, more from Paramount, including what we hope will be at least four separate volumes of Victor Young scores, and a few more things from MGM/UA, and it looks like we may just have our foot in the door somewhere new and if that comes to pass then the first release from there will be one of my personal Holy Grails - we'd probably lose money on it, but with this title I just don't care. smile

My only Kritzerland CD is CARRIE, but I found it more than satisfactory. The content is all there and then some, and the sound quality is session-master perfect.

I agree. It is so refreshing. What I find refreshing as well is that in spite of all the praise on this thread and others, Bruce still comes off as such a humble, down-to-earth and accessible guy. Something tells me that this attitude prevails among all the staff at Kritzerland. There seems to be an excitement and a playfulness that precedes each release. Just a hunch but I'll bet it is a fun place to work.

I too love Kritzerland and have bought 24 of their CDs this year.

I look forward to the 2014 releases and in particular the Victor Young scores.

Yes it is great to see a positive thread.

Many Thanks.

There are just two of us smile Me and my helper, Heather. She does all the shipping by herself and I couldn't really do this without her. But we do have a lot of fun. So do mastering engineer James Nelson and I - you would have loved to have been a fly on the wall while we were doing Poltergeist II and that's all I'm saying about THAT. smile

And the people I work with in terms of the projects are also really good people, from Lukas to Mike Matessino to Chris Malone to Frank De Wald to Neil S. Bulk (forgive me if I've left anyone out) and especially my wonderful friend Nick Redman. Nick and I always have the most fun. The playfulness you perceive is very accurate - that's just who I am as a person, that's what I'm all about. I take the music part very seriously, but the rest of it wouldn't be fun if it weren't fun. And I think everyone has figured out by now that I pretty much won't do projects I don't believe in - I just don't know how to do that, even though I know we'd actually make some good money if we did a few of those. But if I can't find something to like in a score, I simply don't do it. I don't have the energy for that kind of thing and there are too many things I DO like to waste my time on what I don't. And yes, it's very refreshing to not have a thread like this sullied, which has been the case way too many times with us. Thanks to all who've posted and believe me it is all very much appreciated and Heather thanks you, too.

Since Intrada cancelled their release of Fielding's "Junior Bonner" from the tapes stored at BYU it would be great if Kritzerland could do this with the help of Nick Redman, the Fielding expert number one.

It would be nice to see Fielding in the growing list of composers represented in the Kritzerland catalogue! smile

Fielding and Peckinpah, I don't get it that this was not already released long years ago.

…including what we hope will be at least four separate volumes of Victor Young scores…

It sounds like you're doing your best to keep me personally satisfied, at least. That's all I can ask for from a label. big grin

I too am very excited about the forthcoming Victor Young cds, as well as all the others too. The music of Victor Young and Max Steiner especially strike me the right way.

Looks like 2014 will be a great year for Kritzerland! smile

Oh yes, my thanks to Heather too! smile

My thanks to everyone at Kritzerland for a wonderful 2013. From the hints of what to expect in 2014, I know that 2014 will be even more spectacular. Bruce, I hope you got into the front door of Columbia.
