Is McQ anything like Brannigan? I love the Frontiere score and the movie is good fun but I've never seen McQ.
Both have funky roots. I would say Brannigan is a bit softer and more melodic than McQ. But McQ has a very "goldsmithian" mood and is a lot more enjoyable. In other words, a little big masterpiece (and a must have).
What possible reason could there be to NOT have the alerts? The only negative I could possibly see would be if someone was planning on buying something in a couple months that they'd have to step up and buy now...
Just picked up the two that I didn't have and to date I'm just 34 short from having every FSM release. Of all the collections I consider the FSM CDs to be more than just good listening but also a testament to the history of film scoring and I am sad to see it all end, but will show off my collection with pride - with one last OOP in the 34 I need to go the complete set is within reach, but I'm sad that after the next handful of releases that there won't be anymore to add. It will be missed but I treasure every release! Long Live FSM!
I appreciate this very much - took the opportunity to get THE EGYPTIAN, and while I was at it, ordered PLYMOUTH ADVENTURE as well, as I think I should have ordered it (Rózsa! Seafaring music!!) a long time ago. Isn't this how those sales are supposed to work?
