Not in this case - shipping at Kritz $12 and change while only $8 at SAE - damned new International rates. I usually prefer to order from the label itself; give them the business directly & get the item quicker, but now that the rates are as high I compare & go with the cheapest shipping cost - usually only adds a few days, sometimes it takes the same travel time. I'm guessing SAE has cheaper shipping due to volume.

You're in Canada; Judy's in Arizona where shipping is cheaper from Kritzerland. smile


been thinking. I want to work with SAE but those ordering from Kritzerland get priority?


It's not that; it's just that if you order product from Kritzerland you get it directly from Kritzerland. SAE has to order the product from K-land just like every other customer, so first they have to wait to get their shipment of the inventory (LA to Virginia) and then they can process their own orders and ship to their own customers. So using a middleman like SAE can add a week or two for delivery just because of logistics.

The WHAT WHAT WHAT musical? Seriously? *checks Kritzerland* Oh. Really. How ... curious.

http://www.kritzerland.com/starfighter.htm

I presume the vocalist here is supposed to be Centauri http://www.kritzerland.com/audio_K/ToMakeAHero.mp3 he does sound a bit like Robert Preston.


I know. I have been looking at it for some time. As a huge fan of Safan's work, the musical just seemed... odd/out of place. After 2 years of going back and forth I figured I'd just better get it. Bruce has several nice (and unusual) cast recordings. I've yet to hear a bad one.

Still I'm looking forward to Missouri Breaks. Again thanks to Kritzerland.

I was gonna buy this anyway (it's Williams, for John's sake) as part of a SAE order, but since I've been umming and ahhhing over Butch & Sundance for some time now, that offer at Kritzer is a no-brainer!!
Great deal and cool release.
Well done Mr K smile

No samples for the album tracks?

Still, it's nice to see an album version that isn't redundant.

I'm a big Williams fan but this score never hit my radar -- I'm liking the samples.

Ordered earlier today. I expect this will fly off of Bruce's shelving units in no time. I somehow missed any earlier release of this title.

Bruce: Any more cast recordings in the works?

Didn't really see the need for the album samples - wanted to devote all the samples to the score tracks. I can tell you, the album version sounds better than ever.

Funny, I'm NOT a big Williams fan but I must admit this 2CD release is a must have.
A sure sell out soon, so... ordered.

Excited for those of you who do not have the Ryko/Varese release. Going to skip this, as I have the Varese version and feel as though it has more than enough pickin' and twangin' music on it for my tastes.

Just curious,

Bruce or does anyone know if that's the legendary Tommy Tedesco performing the guitar solos on the recordings?

Sound like him to me.

And thank you Bruce for this Awesome release!

Purchased! I'll be looking forward to giving the "real" score a listen.

Since the film was pretty much panned when it came out, I never felt the need to see it. Of course, I did get the John Williams LP, but I never really warmed to the score (probably because I never saw the film, duh). It was a so-so listen at the time for me. I guess that I'll pop in one of the CD releases for a re-sampling. Haven't heard it well over a decade.

Let's me see if this new release can instigate a change in my ancient first opinion.

Possible dumb question: Would it help me to see the film first to get that emotional connection to the music?

I'm not sure it would be Tommy on the original tracks, as they were recorded in New York and he was basically a Hollywood guy - I'm sure he's on the re-recording. But we'll be getting the musician list at some point soon.

I think the film is ripe for reassessment, away from all its baggage. It's VERY quirky but also very entertaining, and Brando is just insane and Brando insane is just really compelling and fun to watch.

And if the Kritzerland sounds even better, then it should be a real treat,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVdINogebM8 digging this cute track too.

Ordered from SAE (with 'Clear and Present Danger (Horner), 'Gladiator'(Goldsmith).

Have never seen the film so have picked up the DVD from Amazon UK as well.

On the one hand that sucks. On the other Yay for you smile

I'm curious, if you'll answer and I'd understand if you don't, why you felt 1200 was the number to go for over 1000, 1500 or 2000. I'd have imagined 1500 would still shift without leaving you too much stock lying around BUT still give those that might have been away a chance to still get it.

The magic/art of choosing quantities is quite a mystery.
