Who's that supposed to be? John F. Kennedy?

. . . I guess JFK was more photogenic than "cartoon-genic."

Shoot! I was hoping this could wait until a few weeks. I guess I better order.

That puts an end to the dumpster postulation.

Congratulations, you guys! It's great to hear that this is selling so well! You've all done a magnificent job. Lukas and Mike have done a great job on this release, and Joe's design is tremendous! Here's hoping that the good sales for releases like this, LOTR, and Alien will send a message to the the powers-that-be that quality releases of great scores can work on the business end!

So how many who bought the first edition will buy the second edition if the packaging is different? ROFL!

Thanks to the many people who have sent their nice words to us and posted comments online. We appreciate all the feedback and are happy to answer questions.


I do have some questions, which occurred to me when you first mentionned the possibility of another edition-- provided it's not a secret: what kind of licence did you get (apart from "all together", and none separately")?

Apparently, you can release a new edition, but in a different shape: is it for financial reasons, or for contractual reasons?

Is the licence for a limited time rather than a limited number, or is there a limited total number (say, 5000), but with several runs allowed, with only one "deluxe" edition?

I 'm asking purely out of curiosity, since this edition is so exceptional in many ways.

On the other hand, I suppose there could not be a similar, "simpler" edition of the Berstein set.

(For the record: I have the Berstein set, and my Superman box shipped yesterday.)

If you liked the blue box, FSM BOX 01 -- Elmer Bernstein's Film Music Collection, in the same box-and-book format, with 12 discs -- is still on sale, but it too has less than 600 remaining out of the 2,000-qty. edition. http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm?ID=5785

Lukas did not pay me to say this -- I swear -- but I highly recommend the Bernstein box set. It is a terrific introduction to Golden Age film music, and the discs are among the best re-recordings ever done, both in terms of sonic and (more especially) performance quality.

There are less than 600 remaining of the 3,000-qty. blue box first edition. Lukas Kendall

Congratulations to Lukas & Co. on a great success with the Blue Box. SUPERMAN is not my cup of tea, but every success keeps alive the string of great releases, small and grand, including many wonderful releases (e.g., the Bernstein box) that I never imagined I would see. You deserve all the success you've had and I look forward to (buying) more great FSM products.

...we are waiting on a few answers from our manufacturer before a final decision about whether it will be the same format as the first.

I'd like to know what the changes (if there are any) will be before making a decision. In any case, I can't really afford this right now -- although I'd really be disappoited if there were a change in format which resulted in lower quality packaging. On the other hand, if the second edition corrects errors present in the first edition then I'd be happy to wait. (One error mentioned in another thread was the fact that the first page of the book had to be glued in.)

Lukas, my sincere congrats also on the sales level of the Bernstein and Superman boxes. I have them both, have not had a chance to listen to the Superman box yet, but the Bernstein is outstanding. I hope there is more to come.
