After hearing the sound clips, the Herbert Stothart and Harry Sukman scores sound quite nice. I may have to get my aunt to order this for me as a Christmas gift.

Manderly, you are, again, the final word on the subject. Thanks for the information, and thanks to Lukas and friends for gifting us
(and further bankrupting us) with this neat package. (Just kidding about the bankrupting!)

My order goes in after the Intrada announcements on Monday.

I'd buy Stothart's DORIAN GRAY, that's for sure!

Nice-looking set, this...

Ack! Ack-ack!

I wonder if I can find a tax deduction for supporting the preservation of classic motion picture scores.

I thank you...but my expression of woe had to do with money already spent on CDs of classic motion picture scores.

Still, supporting Film Music Society's goals is no small thing...and I recommend it to all here.

Notes error located:

A THUNDER OF DRUMS, the notes claim Harry Sukman won an Oscar for FLOWER DRUM SONG :

Sukman (1912–1984) had recently won an Oscar for Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture (on 1960’s Flower Drum Song, shared with Columbia’s Morris Stoloff) and was soon to embark on a successful run of episodic scoring at M-G-M, particularly on Dr. Kildare


Not true, the Columbia Picture title sould be Song Without End. Alfred Newman and Ken Darby won Oscar nominations for FLOWER DRUM SONG (Universal) but did not win.


Also, please please make these notes and the other FSM notes available in a PDF format for easy reading and printing.

Thank you!

So why aren't you all complaining? All the folks who bash Horner where are you? I have a new guy to pick on, that rascal Cyril.

I just put in, finally, the MGM set, disc 2 track 1 at 1:48 to the end, there is a direct and I mean NOTE to NOTE direct take from his Miracle on 34th score. Why aren't you all picking on him like everyone does to Horner????

Is it...okay for him to do it, and not Horner? Is it kind of the in thing to do, to pick on a Horner score.



Now seriously, am I mad, HECK no. I actually liked hearing that and saying, holy shi-, I know that those few notes and they were from another one of his scores. I kind of tapped myself on the shoulder and was somewhat shocked I knew that. See I don't have a lot of older scores, but I'm starting to expand my library with the help of you guys and Manderley and especially Morricone. I also liked that short but sweet little tune from Miracle on 34th Street.

Nicely done! One can now compile a convenient binder for all the FSM notes. May the series expand to make it a fat one!

I do have one suggestion, which applies to the CD packaging as well as to these .PDF notes. Why not include the timings with the notes? Right now, FSM (and many other labels) restrict the timings to the exterior packaging. But timings are actually essential information. Especially when listening to film music, which often consists of little "cues" that can seem to bleed into one another, it can be hard to make sense of the musical progression if you don't know where you are in the track. The disc player has a display, of course, but it is often out of sight. I know I would benefit from having all the relevant information in one place.

John, do you mean the time codes at which various cues begin within a track? Or do you mean the total time for each track? Or...?
