I had sold a copy of Michael Kamen's score The Adventures of Baron Munchausen for $50 to a retail shop and for me, that was a good price at the time, but I wish I had kept it.

Oddly this made me check Fanderson site and they're reissuing complete space 1999 year one in near future. Here's to hoping they redo last sunset including library music.

Varese's BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT by Bill Conti.

One of the few backlog CD's i miss in my collection.


Freejack, it's a great cd! I bought a brand new copy a few years ago and love it. You should keep looking for a copy.smile

John Barry's Jagged Edge.

I have a superb CDr transfer but would love to replace this with a legitimate CD release. The CD was released at a time when money was very short and whilst it's far from being one of his best scores ...

... it is John Barry.

The only film score composer worth spending any decent money on, IMHO.

Mitch


Exactly my sentiments as well, Mitch. I've been prattling on for ages as to why this hasn't seen a reissue. I too only have a CDr of it from my own LP. I agree it's not top drawer Barry but it's a good score and from memory I believe the original CD wasn't the best sounding?

I'd like to invent or buy a time machine, and go back to 1976/77 and force John Barry at gun point to take the gig on TSWLM.

Cost? Who knows what the time machine would be, but the CD would be £3.99 in HMV.

LIGHTING THEIR DARKEST HOUR - TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE

I'd love a copy of the Deck Edition of Blade Runner.

Last one I saw on Discogs was going for $150.

Some new release might come out with superior sound quality that could change things I suppose, but I can't imagine liking any album arrangement better than the Deck, it just flows perfectly for me.

One of you has answered this question already, but I'll pose it to the rest: If you could get a friend to make a good dub of some out-of-print album, would you still think of spending money on the original?

For me, at least, it's about the music. With rare exceptions, I don't need the physical souvenir. I might buy a later release for the documentation or to support a worthy record label that takes the trouble to rescue an old score. But for me, "the play's the thing," and I could scarcely care less about the "collector" aspect. Others will differ.

i have a lossless file of the one i want, but i'm far more likely to misplace it than i would be the original disc.
i could burn a cd of it i suppose, and save it from whatever inevitable crash my computer is furiously working towards, but yeah, i guess i appreciate covers and inlays and notes, it's part of the ritual of listening, and reflects my esteem for the art and effort involved.

It's all about the music, isn't it? Collecting is nice and booklets and notes can be informative and decorative, but in the end pretty inconsequential. No one is ever likely to see my collection or take any interest in it apart from myself anyway. I've had copies made for me before and went and bought the original later, I'm not sure I would really do that anymore. I'm more likely to spend it on something I don't have at all.

I'd want the Varese Sarabande club Bernard Herrmann box issued in the club's first incarnation in the early 90s. I didn't learn about the club until several releases had been issued.

Have seen the Herrmann once in the SAE rarities/out of print listings. It was way pricey. I have most of what is on that set on other, audiophile recordings, but there are some things I don't have.



No question about it.. The Herrmann box.

Jaws 2 for me.

Jaws 2 for me.

Indeed, Matt. I've sold a lot of CD's over the years, but I won't part with that one. It's a lesser John Williams film, but certainly not a lesser John Williams score.

I wish I had THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE.

Thomas, I'm sure we're in a minority and, as always: to each ... their own choice.

I've become a little disillusioned with the film score genre of late. I feel I have almost all of the big-named scores that I want (I probably haven't but that's the problem: what should I buy that I don't know ...? smile) and whilst I'm happy to take a punt on a few unknown scores from time to time if they're cheap enough I struggle to identify a score which I'd spend, say, GBP30 or more to acquire ...

... not when I can buy a 20CD (or more) box-set of big-named classical recordings for the same money.

Of course, if there were legitimate releases of the OSTs for Man in the Middle, Follow Me, The Dove, Legend of the Lone Ranger, Inside Moves or Boom! - to name just those scores for which there were legitimate vinyl releases - then I'd find the funds to purchase them, but the only known CD release at GBP30+ I'm interested in presently is Jagged Edge.

Of course, to others, my suggested amount of GBP30,00 may seem inappropriate.

I'm sure someone will point out another JB score I've missed ...

Mitch

Holy smoke, I've been around and actually do have a few of the above mentioned titles....
... now, off hand... that one out of print title I could buy... sheesh... I don't know... but I sure would like a copy of the old Varese Masters Film music release of Alex North's UNDER THE VOLCANO.

Two that got away cause I didn't have the cash at he time of their release. The Burton/Elfman Box and the recent Dr. Who set in either version.
