Saw this thread retreat to the 4th page

MV,

How did working on the Matrix sequels come about and how long did they take from when you got the ok to when they were finished?

Thanks for any info.


Those were both phenomenal releases, by the way. Whatever amount of work, time, blood, tears went into those—worth it. They are both prized items in my collection.


Not much to tell on this one. It was a relatively simple project that's was fairly easy to clear with both the record company and the studio. Mr. Davis is an amazing talented composer who had all his work backed up so we were able to utilize his master recordingss. He worked with our producer and we came out with a fantastic product. I wish they performed better in terms of sales but the bootlegs that came out years earlier really did damper sales figures for these amazing scores.

Funny side note -- For about three and a half seconds we did have the potential rights for the first Matrix score, but then the powers-that-be realized that the score rights rested solely with Varese as opposed to Warner Brothers records, who had the song album rights. Perhaps someday Warner Brothers and Varese will release a definitive edition of the first Matrix score.

Thanks MV, and when did you start the work? 2010 or 2011?

Damn shame about the bootlegs. They deserved to sell well. Same with ID4, I believe.

I hope they do!

I also look forward to Davis's JPIII some day. Great, rollicking score for a crap movie.

MV -- first of all, thank you very much for taking of your time to reply here.

I was wondering if the Rejected/Original releases are good sellers. For me, these combos are priceless!

Considering that you have done a couple of these, is there any possibility for TEXAS RANGERS - both Marco Beltrami rejected score + Trevor Rabin original score in one package??

Hello MV, and La La Land Records!

I posted up a thread more than a year ago about getting a soundtrack release to the music of:

LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN.

I don't want to get into too much detail - as then it might start to sound too demanding, and unfortunately - not everyone now-a-days appreciates the (not so) older stuff than the newer "fresher" TV scores.

However; since Superman is getting to be popular again - with the Supergirl TV series, and a soon to be released "KRYPTON" TV series... is there...

PLEASE - a chance of your team at La La Land Records to find those elements to restore the TV scores of Jay Gruska's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman?

It will be a massive hit if you do it, as there are so many F.O.L.C. (s) out there (Fans Of Lois & Clark). Please? These scores are my biggest Holy Grail.

You guys call yourselves FOLCs? Well, there's an unfortunate acronym...

i gotta ask, what's the deal with the only good episode of the x-files revival series getting such limited music representation? was that episode largely non-original music or something. baffling!

That's really terrible (but sadly believable) that bootlegs cut into your well-deserved earnings on the "Matrix" releases, which are terrific. As the screen says before every damn DVD, piracy is not a victimless crime.

Not baffling at all. Great episode, but the music was ok.

Absolutely no plans at this time.

It's happened on a a few other releases of ours where Boots have been fairly prominent in the marketplace. Shaft and The Relic come to mind. It's not always the case, but when professionally produced boots or promos were coming out in the 90's I think they did make an impact on sales of the officially licensed product years later....especially when dealing with such a small niche like film scores.

Has YouTube done damage as well? I can think of at least one minor score that has popped up in its entirety on YouTube, that never had a CD release.

Too bad the sales are doing poorly frown I was hoping for a second volume.
The music is great. Thanks for releasing it!

In regards to my Lois & Clark question...

Not to worry - it was worth a try asking.

I already know that the more modern (and darker) television scores are far more important to release than something positive and thematic such as this gem.

Fans like myself will probably be hard of hearing by the time it does get released - and the younger people now - will probably not care anyway. That is just too bad... (but I guess I knew your answer MV, before you posted it, considering the lack of enthusiasm I got from my first thread!)

Superman is still "flying" now - but in 5 to 10 years time - no one will care about the Henry Cavill films - or whatever else Warner Bros is doing with the character at this present time.

Hi MV ..Any chance at all of squeezing out another MILLENNIUM release? There's just something about Mr Snow's music for that series that always gave it the edge over the X-Files for me. Eternally grateful for the two brilliant volumes you released.

Fuck... I guess that scuppers potential for THE SIMPSONS or FUTURAMA.
