I had to liquidate a collection and memorabilia of a beloved person myself before. Even if you would want to or have an interest in some stuff, there is no way you can "KEEP" all the stuff another person has amassed over the years. Particularly not when you are grieving. I had to do this when somebody I knew (who was also an artist) died... and I kept quite few things and paintings, but what to do with the rest? Some I gave happily away to people who requested a token or who I knew would appreciate it... the rest? I let somebody else buy it from me at a flat rate and that person will sell or whatever do with it... probably (and hopefully) for a price way more than what I got. But sometimes you just want to let go and no longer have anything to do with it.

Nick Redman was beloved by many people... every person he met or dealt with that I know of liked him, I sure have not heard anything bad about him from anyone ever, and I'm sure all his family and closest friends have already picked the items they personally want to keep; why would they keep what they do not need or want? Nick must have amassed a lot of interesting stuff over the years. To offer it for sale (to those who could appreciate it most) seems the best way to go.

Boy am I getting depressed...

Very sad post. But if I find something of interest it will at least help me cherish Nick Redman's memory. We lost him way to soon. He was our champion. RIP.

I hope SAE goes directly to their email list and not thru EBAY or Trading Post

If my items are any indication, this is just about the worst place to sell ANYTHING!

How SAE determines their prices, at this point in time, is continually perplexing.

Spend some time perusing that inventory.

Needs severe updating.

Love you SAE - been with you for twenty years but . . .

Yeah. I mentioned it before: their ' rarities' seem way overpriced.

I'd like to see what items of Nick's estate are made available. Like Amer, I would like to have some personal mementos to remember him by. This notice ticked off an item of concern to me.

I just turned 70 in May and thoughts of how to arrange for the proper disposition of my 58 years of film music collecting in my will has been on my mind. It's not an easy task. I think VERY FEW persons could assemble in one place what I have done. Just the space and shelving involved is daunting. Shipping it all somewhere, even as an intact collection, would be a technical nightmare, especially for someone who doesn't understand the significance of the many collectible items.

How does one even begin to list everything? You can't. I know it all in my head, and I would hope to write a book someday when I retire (Yes, I'm still working). When you reach a certain age and have seen it happen to your contemporaries around you, you hope that someday you don't get dementia to rob you of your memories.

My film music collection has given me great satisfaction over the years. I'm one who has to have the physical media in my hand. I taught my kids to like film music, and they do, but nowhere as passionately as me. And the "Compulsive Completist Collector Disorder" (everything is a "disorder" nowadays...why not that?) that afflicts me has (fortunately) spared them. They are the newer generation. who don't want to fill up their homes with shelves full of "stuff" that they can get digitally or on the Internet. I understand the new paradigm.

78s, 45s, LPs (10-inch, 12-inch, and 16-inch), CDs, DVDs, books, sheet music, composer items (autographs, signed photos, signed books), film music magazines, lobby cards, one-sheet posters, composer journals and periodicals, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera (reminds me of Yul Brynner in The Kind and I). There is a certain dark humor involved when film music collectors of my age gather and reminisce about our fellow collectors who have passed away. "Did you hear so-and-so died?" Eventually and inevitably, the question of "What happened to his collection?" will pop up in the conversation. I humorous moments, I wondered if having a kind of lottery would work. Winner take all. Publisher's Clearing House-style. Winner would probably have to move. University donation? I've heard good and quite bad stories. I'm still sorting it out in my head.

RIP, dear Nick. Hmm. I wonder what Nick would say.

Maybe Julie could share some thoughts?

Ultimately none of our business.

I have and continue to give things away that don't mean me anymore ( like STAR WARS stuff or sheet music)
But, the.people who I might give stuff.too are now few and far between ( or in England fercrissakes).

Riotengine has been the main.recipient of my film related memorabilia
Not that he appreciates it wink]

From latest newsletter:

As can be expected, the late Nick Redman, Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker and soundtrack producer and co-founder of Twilight Time, maintained an extensive movie music collection. Screen Archives Entertainment is pleased to announce that Redman’s estate and wife, Julie Kirgo have selected SAE to liquidate the impeccable-condition of CDs that Redman enjoyed over the years. According to Jon Burlingame’s recollection of Redman’s life in Variety, Nick was well-informed about film scores, and as a consultant to Fox Music Group, he personally supervised one of Hollywood’s first film-music restoration programs, restoring hundreds of 20th Century-Fox film and television scores.

The private collection includes many works of composers Alfred Newman, Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, David Raksin, Hugo Friedhofer, Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Alex North, Hans Zimmer, James Horner, Michael Kamen, Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Fielding and many others.

The condition (unopened, limited edition, out-of-print, etc.) of each title will be noted, but all sales will be final and no returns are accepted. Due to the limited quantity of titles, sales will be on a first come basis until sold.

Titles will be available for purchase Tuesday, July 23rd at 12 Noon Eastern.

Specify in your will that your CDs be donated to your local library. What it can't use in its collection will be put up for sale in its bookstore.

I'm looking, but I see no listings via the links sent by SAE.

Yeah, it would be better to see full list AND prices before the actual sale will start.
Even without "Add to cart" button it will be really useful.

It's too bad SAE announced they were re-selling his retail CDs since it's creating a desperate auction-like reaction. It doesn't matter to me who previously owned them, so why not simply add them to the "used" section with the other over-priced CDs I can't afford.

Is there a link yet, or not until tomorrow?

The email indicated it will be listed in the "Company Labels." It's called "Redman CDs":
