I think it would be the only way to see again vintage John Williams scores of the 60s and early 70s.


Not if Kritzerland, Intrada, La-La Land, Varese Sarabande, Quartet et al have anything to do with it (let's not forget Intrada put out the earliest Williams film score yet released with Bachelor Flat).

    well, that was 7 years ago.
    If we look at the 60s Williams film soundtracks, 2 were released by Intrada (Bachelor Flat + How to Steal a Million), 1 from Music Box Records (Fitzwilly) and 6 from FSM!

    I also picked up a bunch of titles that I had in my "save for later" list... And "later" might be NOW before they sell out...

    I'd also urge all of you who haven't picked them up already to get these wonderful CDs, which maybe not the most obvious ones to get:

    - JOY IN THE MORNING - maybe the most romantic Bernard Herrmann score ever!
    - BROKEN LANCE - great movie and equally great score
    - TRIBUTE TO A BAD MAN - WOW Rózsa can do westerns as well!
    - INSIDE DAISY CLOVER - I was very surprised by this one as I didn't know either the movie or the score
    - KINGS ROW / THE SEA WOLF - Any Korngold is a must
    - RAINTREE COUNTY - a forgotten classic, Warner PLEASE release this film on BLU-RAY !!!
    - TOM AND JERRY & TEX AVERY TOO! VOL. 1: THE 1950s - now this is probably my most favorite FSM golden age release ever! I love Tom & Jerry cartoons and their music, I really hope there'll be a volume 2 some day...
    - THE LIQUIDATOR - again nice surprise and great title song by Shirley Bassey!

    Thanks again Lukas for all these wonderful releases over the past years!
    Cheers,
    Uwe

    Glad to see that Clifton Parker's, Damn The Defiant! has finally sold out. I can still remember Lukas appealing for decent sounding LP's, as he obviously had the rights but no tapes. One of quite a few scores that would never have got a release without FSM.

    All great choices to be sure. Prepare to be amazed by Dark of the Sun, a dark, passionate and thrilling work. Its the best Morricone score Morricone never wrote... and so much more.

    Only 50 Bernstein box sets remaining. I can't imagine anyone will ever make more of these—the hardcover book alone cost a fortune to print!

    How I wish you would reincarnate FSM, Lukas.

    Me too!
    I think it would be the only way to see again vintage John Williams scores of the 60s and early 70s.




    I too wish Lukas would bring back the FSM CDs, I so much looked forward to them.

    Thanks Lukas for so many great CDs! smile

    Easily one of FSM's best releases! I got mine last Christmas thanks to that 50% discount offer and it's one of the jewels of my collection!
    Grab those last 50, guys!

    TWILIGHT ZONE : THE MOVIE has just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

    TWILIGHT ZONE : THE MOVIE has just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

    I don't think it crossed into the TZ forever.
    Lukas said it not once - quantity alert shows only remaining stocks at SAE.
    But if FSM still have rights to re-press title, they will do it and it will return bit latter.
    In case of TZ Lukas said that they we will continue to keep this in print.
    Same with Trek scores.

    Here the link about TZ - http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/daily/article.cfm/articleID/6766/FSM-Catalog%E2%80%94Low-Quantities-Report-Part-9-CD-Vol.-12-2009/
    Of course it was 3 years ago, things could change, maybe their licences are gone, so who knows?...

    I wonder if it's speculators buying up stock? There is still the issue of new Intrada, The Deep CDs recurring, particularly at Amazon. Not a bad thing in itself. It takes a certain level of liability off FSM's hands while still leaving the titles visible. Then again, what do I know?

    Sometimes it's speculators.
    Sometimes - just people, who had titles in their wish-list and who ordered them after such alerts, 'cause they understand that title could gone from them forever.
    I'm from second "group" - all titles which I ordered were in my wish-list, which I made 1 or 1.5 year ago - I made decision to buy 1-2 titles from it per-month. But as 7 titles from my list appeared in "less than 150" list, I couldn't wait more (low quantity + amazing 30% discount made me hurry).

    Yes, thanks to your link i found the quote : We have made 4,500 copies and have 400 in stock—we will continue to keep this in print. It is one of our best-selling titles.
    And even if that's not the case any longer, i hardly can believe it's an "endangered score" : it's bound to be re-released at some point.

    "Fewer than 100" sold out in two days, i think it's something to do with retailers.

    Beware to bootlegers especially from UK.

    The Deep, Last of the Dogmen, Robocop, Ghostbusters... all sold out, all at less than £20 at Amazon.co.uk = bootlegs (read the comments).

    I wonder why licensors don't let our favorite labels reissue those ones - frown

    Yes, Anabel, and some of them can be very, very pricey. wink

    Ok, let's call them "Speculative Retailers"!

    Happy?

    As long as I've got at least one CD from a relevant title, I'm happy! smile

    Now I'm wishing I didn't pay off a certain bill. Was it necessary? Yes. But what're they gonna do, shut off my powe

    - Dark of the Sun
    - Plymouth Adventure (...bye bye b**t!)
    - Logan's Run: TV Series 1977
    - Kung Fu / Man in the Wilderness

    Titles that were on my wish-list - except the last one - but were always skipped in favor of something else. Now the time came!
