This is a comments thread about Blog Post: Film Score Blog (December 2009): Network and My Vintage Selection for 2009, Part 1! by Thomas Rucki

Wow, Thomas! You went all out with this one. Next time, I'd break up segments into paragraphs, though. wink

The scope and epic sprawl of this past decade--whatever the hell its called and whenever the hell it began or ends--has been the best in terms of how many cherished scores from TV and film have found CD releases. For me, it started in 2002 when Varese did The Sand Pebbles and FSM stunned me with Lust For Life.

Great review! I like that you include virtually every aspect of the score: packaging, notes, sequencing, etc. You should be paid for this.

And I'm glad someone else loves IN HARM'S WAY! wink

Yes, I agree - a very nice summary of releases that must have taken quite a while to prepare.

As usual, I don't agree with all your views, but I certainly do with a lot of them. Delight with some of the Network soundtracks (The Protectors) and disappointment with some of them too (Strange Report, The Music of ITC), but overall I think it's been a good year!

Again, a great summary (although I do agree with Mr Phelps that it would have been less of an eyestrain had it been spilt up into more paragraphs!)

I read you about the paragraphs.
I try to be alive, sharp, subjective (i.e., personnal) and share my enthusiasm for any details.
"The Rock" is perfect: I wish I could listen to the original recording of "In Harm's Way".
Just received North's "The Children's Hour" and I think I will order "Panic in Year Zero": SAE recently published audio samples and the music is jazz-oriented.
Feel free to post a feedback about Part 2.

Well, now you can read what I think of Fielding's "The Big Sleep".
"The Champions" and "The Protectors" are the gems of Network all the way: listen to "WAM".

Thanks Thomas Always Enjoy reading your Posts, quite a few you have written about that I would like to check out,My Musical interests are spread fairly widely cannot afford to Buy everything that I would like to.

With so many Titles coming out you have to be more and more Selective about which ones to get,I'm still picking of a number of the older titles that more than likely will soon be OOP.

In Harms Way is One of my Favorites from 09 as well wink
