Well, I feel soooo loved. I'd invite all you people to go to the Kritzerland website and take a look at the soundtracks we've released for the past fifteen years. Apparently, not a single solitary person in this thread has any of them or has enjoyed them and there have been some MONUMENTAL releases that never would have seen the light of day if not for us. This really makes me only want to issue show music from now on, that much I can tell you. Those folks are truly appreciative. I mean, I don't think there's a label that hasn't been mentioned save for us. Warms the cockles of my heart, truly. Maybe I'll just sit on the film music title we have coming next week and the ones after that. Yes, maybe I just will. I'm almost tempted to list the over three hundred soundtracks we've released, but why bother.

I don't think I own a single Kritzerland album and with such a "woe is me" post like this I can't say I'm in much of a rush to change that.

Thanks to everyone at EVERY label that has put film scores out there over the years and those that still do it, from the owners and financiers to the staff and researchers to those that take the parcels to the post office for us.

To quote Doctor Klahn in a Fistful of Yen "...You have our gwatitude...!"

Closer to 75 so it's harder to jump-start those old cockles wink. And since we're all now on his ignore list, he'll never see any compliments. Oh, well.

Of course, had I seen Dana's post I would never have posted at all - but somehow I missed it. I do like that someone made a K of our releases. smile

Bruce, I have 55 of your titles in my collection, and love them all. But the following releases (in no particular order) were all "holy grails" for me at the time and remain among my most prized possessions:

HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY
ONE EYED JACKS
ADVISE AND CONSENT
SUMMER AND SMOKE
THE CARDINAL
THE BARBARIAN AND THE GEISHA
TARAS BULBA
THE MIRACLE WORKER
TOM JONES
THE BUCCANEER
ELMER GANTRY

So don't feel unloved -- every time I listen to SUMMER AND SMOKE with the Prologue music and none of the hiss from the old RCA Spain release, or TARAS BULBA that doesn't sound tinny and has some oomph in the bass end, I think gratefully of all the gems Kritzerland has contributed to my collection! I harbor the hope that at some point in the future we will see more classic film scores from Kritzerland of the caliber of the above.

If Kritzerland had never released anything else, I would be forever indebted to Bruce just for GOD"S LITTLE ACRE.
That was a holy grail of mine for DECADES. My very first soundtrack related purchase at 12 years old was the United Artists LP, GREAT MOTION PICTURE THEMES which had the cue "Diggin' in the Morning" from GOD"S LITTLE ACRE, which entranced me. I also saw the film on TV in the 60s and was smitten by the score. I was too young to find the LP and then it became rare. Many years later, Bruce releases the fabulous CD with extra music and I'm in heaven.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Many of my favorite CD releases are Kritzerland.
TARAS BULBA
DEMENTIA
ONE EYES JACKS
THE WORLD OF SUZIE WONG (with Nancy Kwan's autograph no less!)
SAINT JOAN
A GIRL NAMED TAMIKO / LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER
TWO FOR THE SEESAW
HOW TO MURDER YOUR WIFE
THE MOLLY MAGUIRES

All these are among my top 100 favorite soundtrack albums and there are plenty more that fall in the next 100 (out of over 3000). There's no lack of appreciation for Kritzerland here. More so than for the labels that seem stuck in the '80s

When I think of honking, I think of Ferris Bueller's Day off...guess you had to be there.

So that's what all the honking I heard today was about. I had no idea L.A. had so many soundtrack collectors.

Honk!

Boutique labels bring me scores for movies I never would have thought I'd be able to own. Sure, definitive expanded editions for movies like Superman, Titanic, and E.T. are awesome, but those are scores I'll always be able to get in some form.

But complete scores for movies like Harry And The Hendersons, A Walk In The Clouds, and Mr Mom?

Huge 3-Disc editions of Howard The Duck and Santa Claus: The Movie?

Only with boutique labels.
