I have waited for FAMILY PLOT for very close to 35 years.....

Only one that interests me this time around. And this is it.

WOW! They start with Donaggio and end with the one score I've been waiting for 34 years to get. I won't even grumble about not using the original poster art on the cover. Family Plot was the film I trained on when I was learning to run projectors in high school (our small town theater actually still used carbon arc projectors) and I got to know this score inside and out because even when I couldn't see the film while I was threading up reels and changing the carbon rods I could always hear the sound in the projection booth. The same was true for Carrie, Marathon Man and a lot of great scores from that period.

And is it all in Stereo?

Cool!

I had a feeling this one was right around the corner when those crystal-clear recordings leaked out on bootleg a couple of years ago. Now I'm only happy to throw that away and replace it with the real deal.

It's not really a score I find that interesting (beyond the brilliant main and end titles, there's a lot of sneaking-around music), and I would obviously have preferred to see an album arrangement out of it, but that aside - it's an important score in Williams' history and it's great to FINALLY have it released.

Makes you think that SUGARLAND EXPRESS may not be an impossibility either.

Hasn't that one been blocked by Williams himself: he actively doesn't want it released?

Depends on how much longer Williams lives. According to Roger Fiegelson, Williams has made it clear that he doesn't want the score given a soundtrack release. However, not to be insensitive, once he keels over, there's probably nothing to stop it happening.

I trust you on this.... Soon ordered along with two copies of THE KARATE KID and ESCAPE FROM THE PLANETS OF THE APES.



BTW. German custormos are having a hard time right now - the titles have not been announced yet on Colosseum.de

I know a lot of people felt that way, but I knew somebody who had that a good eight years ago. They haven't been working on this CD for eight years.

Anyway, delighted that this is on its way. Nice work, Varese!

Still these samples sound 100X better than the boot and in Stereo as far as I can hear

Let's say goodbye to this




too many times listened that I lost any hope to see one day a PLOT release!

I wouldn't say goodbye to that compilation just yet, though...there are a couple of good suites from other Hitchcock scores on that one that don't have a proper release yet (STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, for example). So I'd hold on to it.

I ordered from SAE but in my excitement didn't notice it's 5$ more . Why? This is the first time this happens.
