Huge, heartfelt thanks to Lukas and all at SAE. I'm absolutely thrilled.

Don't suppose you have any Glass Slippers laying around? No? Oh well...

Great new about the Treasury though for those that mixed out. It really is a treasure.

Darn it. I'm so broke these days but awesome to see this back. Missed the set last time when tried to order it.

Like all the FSM Box Sets this is a must have - says one very satsified owner of such box. smile

Problem for me is that I would only buy it for "The power". The rest is good too but may be too much money for a whole box full of Rozsa basically doing the same thing over and over again. I like his "biblical" sound but after a while it becomes repetitive; had that with the "Ben Hur" set and another box will hardly change that.

D.S.

Thank you Lukas!!! Almost got this at a much higher inflated price.

For some reason I missed out on Goodbye Mr. Chips. It would be a good thing (awesome really) if this gets repressed as well. I know a few people who missed out and want this.

PS Just noticed the holiday offer! smile

A heartfelt thank you, Lukas. Christmas came early.

First off, what a great thing to make this massive set available again for more film music fans to enjoy. Bravo!

Second, I have a question for those who own the Treasury. The only Rózsa score I own is Ben-Hur. The lovelier cues from Ben-Hur such as "Esther," "Love Theme", "Ring For Freedom," "Memories," and "Balthasar" are by far my favorite tracks here and are among the most beautiful I've ever heard. However, I'm really not that fond of Rózsa's action music and his march cues. They're just not my thing. Does the Treasury skew more in the direction of those action/parade-type cues or the more beautiful "love theme" type cues? Or is it pretty much a balance of both? I'm probably going to go in for the Treasury eventually, regardless; with over nineteen hours of music, I'm sure there will be more than enough I will enjoy. But as so much of Rózsa's music seems to follow along a similar vein, what can you tell me of the Treasury based on the cues I like from Ben-Hur?

You can still listen to a few of the cues at http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/13181/MIKLOS-ROZSA-TREASURY-2000-EDITION/ , you just have to click on the title you want to hear and it brings up that titles' page.

Thanks for pointing out where to find the samples. I'd missed that clicking on the individual titles takes you to a new page. There still aren't all that many, but I'll check out what's there. The first few sound very similar to Ben-Hur, but I guess that's Rózsa's style.
