I've never doubted, not even for a second, that you had your copy received before me.
I hate your postal service!


Well, I did have to pay an additional 10 euro customs fee, I hate my postal service too! big grin

Well Mutant, I am a happier Kessler cause I got two smile (one to listen too another to worship)

Cool! I got 2 sets for the same reasons (well, one is to worship AND keep as a back up in case the unthinkable happens to the first set).

So excited that this just arrived. Thanks once again to LLL, DarkDel and of course Harry himself.

Harry writing the notes and "Ki... Ma..." on the front cover is just the coolest thing.

You guys are killing me. : )

But I am happy so many fans were able to get this. Even though I missed out, I know this will be available again one day. So for now, I get to live vicariously through you all.

A lot of people have been chiming in about Harry's autograph and how he notated the "Ki...Ma..." on their box sets. I wrote the liner notes for the box set and was there right beside him at the signing the entire time. He signed every one of those box sets like that! Even the 180 pre-orders that waited for him when he got to Dark Del. Plus he signed all the LLL copies a few days earlier. He mentioned that he signed upwards around 300 or so box sets in a span of just a few days. Plus, the calligraphy looks exquisite. I told him he needed to be inducted in the Autograph Hall of Fame. Talk about fan dedication. What a class act!

It's hands down the coolest autograph of my collection (although my Kamen autograph of BRAZIL with the minor-7th "Bra-zil" notated out is pretty sweet too!).

I got a few questions about the score to part 4. Did Manfredini write original material for it but TPTB decided to track in cues from parts 1 & 2 instead throughout most of the score ? Or did they make the decision beforehand to track in parts 1 & 2's music and have Manfredini write new music in certain parts? Also if Manfredini did write new cues but were never used was it not included in the box b/c it was lost or what? I'm not complaining just very curious if Manfredini wrote new material for pt. 4 and if so why it wasn't included on the album? I thought Manfredini was availiable for pt.4 unlike pt.3 where most of the music was tracked in from pts 1 &2.

Another question I have deals with pt.6. The cue that plays in the film after the caretaker says "Some people have a strange idea of entertainment" and shows Jason walking through the woods looking for his next prey. It also plays at the end I believe right before the "Man Behind the Mask" song kicks in. Anybody know why that wasn't included in the box or if Manfredini wrote it or not? I always found that particular cue very creepy and eerie.

Good questions about Part 4. I was actually wondering the same after reading the liner notes. They kind of made it even more unclear. Unfortunately, other than Part 6, where they had the original tapes, all the music from the other five comes directly from the movies themselves, so I guess anything that may have been recorded and cut/edited or not used is lost forever. There are quite a few times where there are fades (because that's how its heard in the final film) that there may have been additional material originally.

Part 4 reuses alot of music from the earlier movies, but there is some new music made to (especially the main theme and the whole last act of the movie. If Manfredini recorded more music that wasn´t used in the movie, it is lost today...

This box set has not lost one iota of magnificence. I still can't believe I'm holding these scores in my hand. Every time I think to myself, "Which of the six scores should I listen to now" I can't believe my incredible good fortune that I can even ask myself that! Feel like listening to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning? Sure! Just let me open my gorgeous Friday box and open up to the 5th disc and its beautiful design, pop it in...stunning, crisp sound quality! Each day I wake up and thank my lucky stars (and Mr. Manfredini and La La Land) for such a dream come true.

Been going through the scores a lot in the recent week and as I'm not that familiar with the Friday movies, I like the consistency of terror in the music but it's very hard for me to associate it with scenes; I need to rewatch the series. But there isn't one boring disc amongst these, great material for every entry.

I'm digging on these every other day, and they are wonderful,
a great set, all around entertaining and appreciate from all
involved. No more to say than that, 'cept it's been like Crystal
Lake 'round the Goblin residence for a few weeks now!

There's something about Part V, I keep coming back to it the most.

I kind of agree. It's an interesting bridge from the previous 4 films' sound to the more unique sound of part 6.

This box amazes me each day.

Same here. This is without question the release of the century.

Parts 5 and 6 are so much more complex when listening to their complete scores on CD. Watched part 5 last night and the wholly original scores to 5 and 6 don't always come across as well in the films. Like in part 5 right after Vinnie gets killed and Tommy is freaking out in front of the mirror and trying to take his pills...when I watched it I never noticed the creepy female vocals in the music, but in the score ("Vinnie's Front Seat/Jason in the Mirror") stuff like that really pops out. Likewise in part 5 when Robin disrobes and climbs into bed, never really noticed the music that much (wink) but on CD it is a very 80's horror-movie quiet moment of respite, even though the evil-woodwind 6-note killer theme lurks nearby ("Robin Covers Reggie"). In many ways listening to these scores on CD is like hearing them for the first time, no matter how many times I've seen the films.
