Wow! Just when I thought FSM wasn't releasing stuff I wanted anymore, this comes out! I had thought that the music tapes didn't exist anymore, destroyed in a fire or something.

I'm surely tempted to get this based on the samples, I'll sleep on it. On another note - why can't Harline's Disney work sound this crisp.

Please bring back the complete track samples. It makes it easier for the customer to decide!
Really, the main theme to this sounds fantastic but I'm afraid I don't have the time (or the patience) to click 74 times to hear samples lasting less than a minute.

Seconded, would be great also to be able to play all samples by just clicking one Button.

I don't know how the fire rumor started. The complete masters have been at the studio since the film was made -- however, they were on the unique Cinerama format which is a little more complicated than, say, just finding a Phillips screwdriver. Fortunately in recent years the complete Cinerama masters were transferred by Chace in Burbank and Neil Bulk has done the extensive assembly work to prep the six- and seven-track masters digitally for release. Seriously, the stuff went on forever.

Ordered immediately! What took you so long, Lukas? I've been asking for this one for years. Blessings to you all!

Ditto here! This is SO ordered immediately. Seeing that this was finally released (and so comprehensively too!) almost made me cry a little.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Wow! I am not the biggest Leigh Harline fan but Cinerama made every score sound impressive simply because of the nature it's presentation, sort of like today's Imax films but more so. So this is top flight Harline and it sounds oh-so-good! Thanks FSM and particularly Neil Bulk for all that hard work, it was really worth it!
And the weird thing is THE HONEYMOON MACHINE is one of those innocuous comedies that has stayed with me all these years. Probably because I was totally in love with Paula Prentiss. But also because Steve McQueen had such presence even then, the idea of using a computer to win at gambling seemed really clever at the time and it was the first encounter with Jack Weston who I thought was totally hilarious. That is my explanation for the warm fuzzy feeling I get from that song, the type of which I usually detest.

Would it be possible to extract a better sounding release from the How The West Was Won recording? I know a lot of 'fans' were not pleased by the Rhino release.

Hey Lukas, this time you really did a miracle.....WOW! it's such a magnificant score that proves what interesting work Leigh Harline has done besides his Disney-Stuff.
I love the Main Title as it appeared on the La-La-Land Records CD
The Fantasy Film Music Of George Pal and at time I wished to get more of the real magnificant
score which now finally did happen.
Thanks a lot Lukas and keep publishing such gems as these......FSM is one of the best filmmusic labels of all time......

Okay - that's it. I officially won't listen to ANY naysayers about any possibility ever again.
My first 'please-release-me' list had 'The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm' at the #2 position -
but I scratched it out because somebody on this board said that the tapes were irretrievably lost!!!
We live in Scoreland - the land of never-ending miracles!!! Deal with it.
