I'm not sure I'd have labled this SILVER AGE. Maybe it's time for a new time-linear appelation.

Now that our new board design is in place -- please click on "FSM CDs" up top on the menu bars and you'll see the FSM CD display pages which allow you to sort and search the titles more thoroughly than the SAE site (for now). Thanks!

Lukas and company, I can barely express how much I appreciate this release, for two reasons, one musical, one not.

Arthur B. Rubinstein is for me one of the finest composers working in television and film in the past 40 years. And this is one of his superb works - for its extraordinary craft and wit and just plain musical interest, and also for elevating the film and giving it distinctive life. If you have any fond memory of the film, or if the samples have intrigued you at all, please give it a chance - it is as fine a score as you will hear this year.

I distinctly remember seeing the film in the winter of 1981, when I was a nursing home aide caring for paralyzed residents (among many others). Hearing just the first bars of the Main Title I am back in the theater opening night. The music also takes me back to the bedroom of a recent quadriplegic. The black and white TV on the dresser was on, and as I made the bed, Richard Dreyfuss (on Phil Donahue) was talking about the film and the importance of individual choice. Everything he said carried a special resonance for me as I compared this patient's life to the sculptor's in the film. These memories are both precious and painful, and watching the film again last weekend in anticipation of receiving my copy, I found that no movie can hold up under that weight of memory.

But the music does.

Thank you Mr. Rubinstein, and thank you FSM.

Lukas... can we get 600x600 artwork on some of these older titles, please--whenever you have time, that is?

P.S. Love this CD! Thanks, Neil. smile

My wife loved this movie, insisted I see it with her, but cautioned it
was pretty heavy business. She was right, but it's very much worth
a view, and the score is terrific. Very 'heady' stuff, pitting the baroque
against the drama, makes me pine for the days when things were done
differently - now, we'd get faux-Thomas Newman string/piano pinklings,
and the movie would sink like a Lifetime channel rock.....

I was really surprised how much went unused in the film - it's why these FSM
discs are total gems - there always seems to be so much left out, and the only
chance for our beloved composers to get any validation, is for us to support
these releases!
