Because it contains one of the most famous and beloved scores of all time.

I'm still puzzled over what that could be... a score that would be eagerly wanted by die-hard soundtrack collectors, that is also (apparently) loved by the general public.

I can't see much beyond Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Dr. Zhivago, and ET (plus any number of Disney scores). Any other suggestions for what would qualify?



Oooh! Oooh! Original tracks from PSYCHO?

Could it therefore be a Hitch-Universal box? FRENZY, MARNIE, FAMILY PLOT etc???????

Naah, probably not.

....so if the first 3,000 were to sell out, we may do more copies in the same configuration, an altered "second edition"

Look here, Watson, this is irregular and clearly a clue: how 'altered' could a second edition be? Apart from the words 'second edition' on the box? There's a giveaway here, I know it. An altered second edition would need to be different, but that would irk the people who bought the first one ... unless it was an EDITED version, cheaper?

That one clue indicates there's something momentously popular involved here.

What if it's a Mancini box with "Breakfast At Tiffany's" as one of the most beloved scores of all time?

Or...???

Obviously, Lukas has finally done a deal with Paramount, and what we are getting here is an 8 disc set of the complete "Blue Hawaii" - with 6 hours of Outakes!

My speculation: Alex North boxset, with a complete and definitive SPARTACUS included. smile

The BLUE BOX.....I have no factual knowledge of what this is, but.....

1- With rumors floating around, I think the term "BLUE BOX" actually DOES have significance. And note that Lukas has used it, himself, in his post.

2- Based on rumors I'm hearing, and if I recall correctly, I believe someone HAS guessed this previously quite some time ago---but didn't know it.

3- I think we shouldn't be looking to the Golden Age.

4- I think this is a mass-market project with a very high-profile still today, though some may be old enough to fall outside the AFM cutoff period, and other material may be European-recorded.

5- I suspect the term "famous and beloved score" will turn out to be somewhat misleading to a few.

6- I suspect we should, once again, look to the licensing companies Lukas has regularly been dealing with.

Once again.....I DON'T KNOW what this box set is.....but there are certainly rumors out there, and the format---8 discs, with 160 pages of notes, all capable of being abbreviated at some point later---certainly bolsters MY suspicions.

Doesn't the "abbreviated" concept suggest to you that this box contains much outtake, extra, or additional material, beyond the scores, which could be left out successfully in the future. And, in opposition, how many older, particularly Golden Age scores, or compiled sets, have extra material that could be eliminated?

How well do all of you remember the previous posts on the BLUE BOX?

That would be super-cool. I would definitely be in on that for $120. Beside, it's not even $120 for us Canucks because our dollar is so strong. So bring it on! (heh heh, I rhymed)

A mole in Lukas's organization has informed me that the Blue Box is a compendium of every film score and song ever written whose title contains the world "blue" (what could be more logical?).

However, with the exception of the complete tracks and songs to THE BLUES BROTHERS and THE BLUES BROTHERS 2000, it will contain nothing pertaining to the musical genre known as The Blues.

You don't mean you suspect a LeRoy Holmes retrospective, do you?

And it's even cheaper for us Europeans! Now 1 euro=1,5 dollars. Hehe. smile

However, I stand on my North speculation:

4 discs for SPARTACUS Ultimate Presentation and the other four platters for various other North scores.

Lukas you're killing me... Why don't you just tell us what it is? Xmas shopping is something that must be planned!

Killing you like a mockingbird, perhaps?

As a Briton and NOT a European, the exchange rate's quite good for us. £1 = $2.05. So I'm looking at a scratch under £60 plus shipping. So nyaaah. smile (Mind you, I probably can't afford it anyway!)

Sigh. Here we go again.

It's like deja vu from about a week ago with the Varese Club specuation.

Manderley - I have thought the same. We'll soon know if we are right!

My guess for the 2CD Golden Age set would be the three Max Steiner Warner LPs.

As far as the Blue Box, didn't Lukas say once that the contents had all been previously released but that they really needed to be part of a set? The logical guess was the Gerhahrdt series. Since that's been ruled out (dammit!), I'm clueless...
