Wow, Ballet Russes. That was released in 2005 and had a low number (maybe even 500?), and it's just now selling out? Insane.

It's a really enjoyable score though.

The page says "Intrada MAF", which means unlimited.

I didn't even know this score existed!

Tale of Despereaux is excellent Ross. Smacks a bit of the 2nd Potter film in the action music but just makes it that much better to me.

Not "selling out"....just being eliminated from stock after Jan. 27th.

And what exactly is "being eliminated from stock?" I know that book publishers can pulp, burn or otherwise destroy legions of returned books, but I wouldn't have thought the CD units not sold would be so handled. Surely not?

Despereaux especially is a must have and one of the best William Ross' scores to date.
Hopefully enough people will who missed it, will give it a chance while they still can.

Good question. I've purchased OOP CDs from resellers on Amazon.com and have got "cutouts" with notches in the case or holes punched through the barcode. My guess would be that this is the eventual fate of these CDs.

Storage/shelf space is finite. If CDs don't sell, they go "out of stock". I don't know what Intrada does with them, but they don't sell them any longer even if they don't "sell out".

I assume unsold copies are sold off in bulk. It used to be common to see new but discontinued CDs in used record stores - now you see them on Amazon Marketplace sellers.

Still not very clear. The titles appear on Amazon whatever the case, Doug. Is this 'elimination' something similar to what happened to all the remastered Bond titles Lukas helmed some way back. Those Bonds are, on the face of it, ridiculously underpriced on the mainstay websites. They're always there - it's not as if one of the titles has completely sold out. Diamonds Are Forever should have become a rarity by now IMO. Something doesn't add up to this old square. For one thing, delivery from Amazon or any of the vendors is very efficient, so there's no need to worry over some kind of misfire within any given sale. Confidence is high. The problem is there don't seem to be enough of US to take up the slack.

Edit: To Ron, captain_avis and Lokotus - your replies didn't show up between you making your posts and this last one of mine. I only saw Doug's post above so it may have been they were not showing on my computer due to the 'dropout' problem others have reported as of late.

Uggh.... How is anyone supposed to check out samples from Intrada when their older titles only have samples available in RA format?
Does anyone actually still have RA installed on their computers?

Found the samples for Tale at Screen Archives in the end.... interesting..... might well order this before the end of the month.

I don't think you can compare the Bond titles, which were on EMI, to relatively limited releases from Intrada.

I think Intrada is running low on copies and will not be running off new ones.

I don't know how other companies do it but when we have a title that is going OOP and it doesn't sell out after the licensed term we either:

A. Give the composer the cds
B. Give the studio/production company the cds
C. Destroy them...in other words toss them out/recycle them.

Its per our contracts. Legally we can't even give them away. That allotment of "promos" were already spoken for.

It rarely happens, but there have been a few occasions. The first week of January is usually the best time to dumpster dive at our offices. wink

Dude that is heartbreaking (and not just 'cos I'm a few hours outside of LA)!!!

Can't you donate some of that to libraries or Goodwill??? frown

Blimey! The only way out that makes any kind of sense is to contract for the upper limit, then produce hardcopy in controlled batches in the form of a pyramid. The highest quantity to kick things off, then diminish each new batch accordingly. I'm sure the labels have their methods to minimise loss, but, judging a title to as near a perfect finish as possible has to require - I dunno - 'focal length' for the job.

I wonder how the download option compares with CDs these days?

I'm confused : does it mean tonight there also will be an announcement of two other CDs going out of print ?
