I...except for THE WILD BUNCH -- surprised to see it going OOP so soon. Well, either it will be still available by my next payday or I guess I lose. I hope it stays!

It will be gone. No number is given regarding the number of copies (at least I don't see a number given). I figured it was a title FSM planned on keeping in print for awhile.

I actually had it in my cart at BSX this morning (that was BEFORE I saw this thread. I had no idea it was going OOP at the time). I planned to place an order later today and take advantage of their memorial day sale. Now, seeing this thread I went back to my cart at BSX, and SURE ENOUGH, it was gone. Gone at Movie Music too. Placed an order at SAE, but that is where the shipping is highest (a per disc charge as well!) Hopefully there won't be a problem. What's especially annoying about ordering from SAE is that they never tell you they don't have something until after you get your order and find a note inside.

I think that THE WILD BUNCH should remain in print for longer than just 2 months. The cost with shipping to Europe is $50 which is quite a lot of money. Besides, FSM's own website says
"Limited #: N/A" which leads even more to an impression that it will be available for some time after its release. Yes I know it is not going to be available in 35 years but, come on, two months for a "non-limited" $50 title?

In my opinion it is totally different case than, for instance, 100 RIFLES or LOGAN'S RUN which are both available for many years (and I bought both six or eight or how many years ago) and it is only logical that they are not going to stay in print for long as I can imagine most of the people interested in them had their chance to buy a copy.

Pressing was limited to 2000 copies

The only two I need to pick up are JERICHO and TWILIGHT ZONE, so it's useful to know that numbers are running low. Have to confess I'm not massively bothered about any of the others.

Not sure why the FSM site says N/A, because this was limited to 2,000. And I'm surprised by how quickly this expensive set (widely bemoaned on the boards) seems to have sold. (I'm glad it's successful, by the way, but not that others are missing out.)

The thing is, sales are just impossible to predict. Monday morning quarterbacks always claim they knew it all along, but the fact is some discs sell quickly and others stick around forever. How is any label supposed to be right all the time?

Since I never intend to see "The Wild Bunch" I have no need to own the soundtrack. Let a fan who appreciates its significance more have a copy instead.

"Brothers Karamazov" is the only title on that list I don't have that I have considered getting in the past so I might pull the trigger a little bit later on that since I think I have more time on that one. I got "Zigzag/Supercops" a couple weeks ago solely because I wanted Fielding's scores for the "Hawkins" TV series after seeing that on DVD.

Altogether, I have over 150 FSM titles of the 250 released and at the most I only think I'm liable to get handful more down the line.

Wow... reading through that list there's a real feel of finality for FSM, more so than even when The Wild Bunch was released. So many classic, essential titles in that list that had been available for so long as part of FSM's catalog now nearly gone. Major props to FSM and Lukas and Craig for keeping them available for so long, it's just strange to think they'll be gone...

I know that FSM's RIO CONCHOS score by Jerry Goldsmith has been sold-out for some time, but what does anyone here think are the chances that it'll be re-issued by someone and possibly in complete stereo this time?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if it got re-released. Looking at the re-releases of Stagecoach, Rio Lobo and Bandolero, I would suggest that La-la land records would be the likely company to do it. As for stereo? Who knows, stereo tapes seem to be missing for many of these old scores. If you want the score in stereo, may I suggest Intrada's wonderful re-recording of its highlights, which I think shows the score in a considerably better light than the OST.

Looks like King Kong is down to 92 copies. Damn! And I just placed an order for CDs a couple of days ago. Looks like I'm going to need to put in another, because I'm not missing this one!

Under Fire is now gone.

As of this moment, these are still available at Beat Records:

The Wild Bunch (€ 30): http://www.beatrecords.it/shop.asp?idprodotto=FSM1601&lingua=e

Under Fire (€ 16.2): http://www.beatrecords.it/shop.asp?idprodotto=FSM1104&lingua=e

Their inventory is not updated in real time, however, so placing an order does not guarantee availability (i.e., if someone else snags the last copy before your order is placed, you'll receive an order cancellation via email).

EDIT 5/26: The Wild Bunch is now sold out at Beat Records.

If any of you John Barry fans don't get KING KONG while you still can, you WILL come to regret it!

Agreed! I thought I would have plenty of time to grab this one but it will soon be gone. And there will be some unhappy people out there.

Ditto just about every title listed above, especially THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM!
