Rocketeer, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Home Alone, Ladyhawke, etc...
Where are they? When can we expect them back? Why are they taking so long to restock?

The Holidays are upon us.

What are you talking about? And what is 'Limboland'?

As MV said, the last major pressing plant closed down and things have been hectic.

What I don't understand is all these new releases are getting pressed, why can't the repressings get done too? I mean all the speciality labels are releasing new titles monthly, why don't these get delayed too if there are capacity issues?

How can Who Framed Roger Rabbit take, what is it, two years to get repressed (assuming it ever happens)? And isn't everything being pressed in Mexico anyway? We still have a plant here in SA, perhaps the speciality labels should look into moving replication abroad?

Bottom line: if you want it, get it immediately! Don't wait. I've learned this the hard way.

In the same post MV said it has delayed their releases, to the point they didn't know what was coming and when.

Even some presses (as I recall) from a Warner Bros. plant (the Potter box as I recall) got misplaced. And a master disc lost.

I don't know anything about any of these things, but LADYHAWKE (one of my alltime favourite soundtracks) should be readily availably on the second-hand market, especially the ol' GNP/Crescendo release.

I have that release Thor, it's a terrific score and the GNP covers all the highlights.

New stuff gets pressed up because it's new and all the money spent on it needs to be recouped. Repressings have taken time due to plants closing down, changing locations and money. We dont have an infinite amount of money at our disposal to repress every title. Even if you repress 500 units, chances of you selling more than 200 of them quickly are slim...and that's usually how many you have to sell to cover the cost of the repressing. So you need to budget these things out. We are buying finished goods from the 3rd party record labels. It costs a ton of dough

Thanks for the explanation MV. with this in mind, have you considered a model whereby you take firm orders before repressing, to gauge exact demand, thereby ensuring sufficient quantities to be economical and preventing over-supply? I'm sure many here would be willing to pay upfront to ensure receipt of a particular title. If demand is insufficient to allow a repressing, the funds could be applied to a future order perhaps? Would this work?

100% true. Those third party record label deals are crazy expensive.

I didn't wait for repressing's for SUPERMAN and HARRY POTTER. I got SUPERMAN on Ebay and HARRY POTTER on discogs months ago. I'm glad because I'd still be waiting for HARRY POTTER, I know SUPERMAN is now back in stock.

Makes sense. I'm still waiting on the Harry Potter repressing and it's frustrating. The problem sometimes is just not having the cash on hand at the time that these things are released. Especially when there are multiple releases at the same time, like on Black Friday. Now, with these long delays, the pressure is on to order immediately and worry about how you're going to pay for it later.

I also didn't have the money when HARRY POTTER first came out, fortunately I found a new copy for a good price on discogs.

Another big cd manufacturer has bitten the dust today. This means existing plants are going to be busier and slower. Strange times sadly.
