As we all know, KRITZERLAND has been producing a wonderful mix of Golden Age, Silver Age, Classic and more obscure works for several years now. There is something for everyone in their catalog and thusly, a serious soundtrack collection will have any number of them.

How many do you own and which are you favorites?

36. And my favorites? "Twisted Nerve/Bride Wore Black," "Two for the Seesaw," "Bananas," "Elmer Gantry," "The Molly Maguires," "Strange Love of Martha Ivers," "One-Eyed Jacks," "A Place in the Sun"… and all the others, too! Great, great stuff!

EDIT: How could I forget "Too Late Blues," "Laura," "Summer and Smoke," "Rat Race," and "Audrey Rose"? Also favorites!

    Well....I'm surprised!

    I've checked this out and I've got at least 65 that I can account for in reading Kritzerland's overall list (but I may have missed a couple.)

    My last (so far) is IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and wonderful it is, indeed.

    Sometimes I get them directly from Mr. Kritzerland, and sometimes I add other things to my order and get them from SAE. (Mr. K is much faster.)

    My partner buys mainly Broadway shows and musicals, but I'm never quite up-to-date on what he has. Every-so-often a nice little box comes from Mr. K with 1 or 2 new titles so I think we may have a dozen or two of those around the house, too.

    With all of our purchases between us we've probably paid for a new sofa table in Mr. K's living room or maybe a nice comfy computer chair that he won't get tired of sitting in when he types liner notes. So he'd better invite us to his Christmas Eve party this year to show his appreciation! We kan carrie on an intellagint conversayshun with hiz gests and tawk prittie good, so he duzzent kneed to bee ashammed uv uss. smile

    Actually, since we live fairly near Mr. Kritzerland, we probably should set up one of those long vacuum tube assemblies like they used to have in the old department stores so we could send him our dollars inserted in a metal cannister, zip it off to him, and he could send us his CDs automatically---or "aeronomically"---without packaging them up for shipping.

    We love KRITZERLAND releases!

    My father has 3 and I have 2. We have sold a few and looking to sell a few more, they just do not resell for much.

    Edit- I took some of the FSM posters advise and listed them on the Trading Post. They all sold so Dad only has It's A Wonderful Life now.
