Or, who wants a copy of the FSM MGM Treasury in trade? smile

I'm your huckleberry!




Ah thanks John, actually another party contacted me right after I'd posted and we sealed the deal. But many thanks.

And nice Tombstone quote.

Interesting set to say the least. Some of the stuff I was hoping for isn't on here... maybe in a subsequent volume! I'll consider this at a later date thanks to so many other higher priority -- at least to me -- releases for the remainder of the year. With Intrada and La-La both on a roll, I've ordered more from them this year than I'd care to admit. smile

LOVE the retro cover art.

Anyways, great lineup of composers in this one. I'll have to start saving up some money.

With Monday on my mind, if you know what I mean, these two FSM releases were going to have to be HUGE. I'm getting Hawaii Five-O, but after Lukas mentioned September for that one, I suspected these two today. Having never purchased any of the previous CHIPS cds, that doesn't interest me.

What is it with Intrada and the endless BIGGIES this year? smile La-La isn't that far behind.

The cover artwork looks like one of those special fall issues of TV Guide that I used to get so excited about when I was a kid because it had the previews of the upcoming new shows. Looks like a super package from FSM!



You get a see-gar, Mark. That was my inspiration from the start, mixed up with Doug Trumbull's titles for the ABC Movies of the week. Some of us didn't haven anything better to do but watch TV in the early 1970s.

Well, I'm not in the target audience for this (I'm both too young and too non-American to have any relationship to any of the represented series), but it looks to be a great package for the fans of those shows.

However, one thing obviously struck my interest. A Williams episode score for something called THE ELEVENTH HOUR?!? Wow. I consider myself quite knowledgeable about the composer's entire output, but I hadn't even heard about that one. It's not registered on any discographies or biographies that I've seen, so it's certainly a very special find. I listened to the clips, and while they sounded nice enough, it wasn't hair-standing-on-the-back-of-the-neck type fantastic. A combination of the more gritty and the more casual, laidback jazz things he was doing at the time.

I have to quote Jason LeBlanc, a member on the JWFan board, who said:

"The completist in me wants that 17 1/2 minutes of Williams score, but the realist in me doesn't want to pay $60 to get it".

I'll have to seriously think about this one.

Oh come on! Everyone (including you) knows you won't buy it.

Incredible release, I can't stop listening to some of the Billy Goldenberg tracks. I want it now more than ever. Hopefully will not sell out by Friday (Payday) I will for sure order this release.


The cover art is perfect! I love the font, and esp the color scheme. I am really excited for this release.

I don't know. I AM a Williams completist and need to have one good representation of each of his compositions. It's a dilemma. Most likely, though, it will indeed be a pass, largely due to finances.

Hopefully, it will stay around for a while.

And all the other superior stuff is of no interest to you?

It's all subjective!

Well, I'm sure there's some nice music there and under other (financial) circumstances I might have taken the plunge, but it's practically "unknown territory" to me, and right now I have to REALLY prioritize what I purchase. I can't take a chance on a $60 box, out which I don't really have any connection to any of the series and don't really connect that much to the music either. The Williams score is the only drawing power for me right now, as Williams items are some of the few things I DO prioritize these days.

Thor,
I know what you mean.
The only one that interests me is Earth II

For a moment, I thought EARTH II referred to EARTH 2, one of my alltime favourite series and one of the most underrated too - with a superb score by David Bergeaud. Was this older EARTH II about the same thing?

I'm over the moon with the Then Came Bronson stuff. What a special treat from one of my favorite TV shows.

But there's no Long Lonesome Highway here, which really bums me out.

I can just barely remember it, but it's about a space station (Earth II) and an event involving it that may trigger WWIII.

I liked Earth 2 also and wish it had had an ending, but then again I'm still waiting for the Space Family Robinson to get back to Earth!
