What has "1950s atomic imagery" to do with "Sounder"? Bottom line: I don't think it's that simple.



You do a fold-out and place key panels in such a way that more than one can serve as the cover art. If the original art is not available, you do something in an appropriate style. With a fold-out, they could have done 3 covers and let the buyer decide. I have worked on reissues that have used this approach.

Bottom line: I don't think it's that difficult.


Bored now.


Great release Roger, thanks to you all at Intrada and to Lukas Kendall. I love the photo of the great Alex North on this cover. Releases like this one bring so much pleasure and joy to so many of us, your efforts are very much appreciated.

Wow. I saw the release, and thought, maybe this would be nice.

Then I listened to the damn samples. Wow.

What terrific music. Apparently written to be put in a box for decades and then suddenly released to a group of people who are mostly grateful and surprised.

This is maybe the oddest business on the planet.

We should all post something pleasant about this release to bury the ot complaint.

And vice versa Peter I'm sure. I got such a thrill last night when Intrada announced. It's moments and releases like this that bring such joy into the lives of us collectors, we'll be feeling the buzz of this unexpected revelation for a long time to come. I'm really looking forward to hearing the music...and I already got the notification that my order has shipped! Three cheers for the Intrada hamsters, they really are super efficient!

Ah but Niall, you live on the beautiful emerald isle, and I live in the USA.

So ............. I'll get my two cds DAYS before you! smile

Sorry, I want to see stunning period graphics and images, not photos of aging goofy looking guys who wrote the music.

Assuming your post is not tongue in cheek, then it's not all about the music, it's about the pretty pictures? Personally if I could get some of my favorite scores on CD like Barry's Tamarind Seed or Tiomkin's The High And The Mighty, I couldn't care if they came in a plain brown wrapper!


Ditto, and well said.

Ditto, from me too.

We are so lucky to be getting these rare gems with ANY art work at all!

Back in the 1970s and 1980s we often got LPs with the composer on the cover. This year marks 50 years since I started collecting film scores. I am very grateful, period!

The title of the film is "Decision for Chemistry," not "Design..."


An incorrect title is less offensive than ugly cover art.

And it bears pointing out that fans making custom covers don't have to deal with studios and licensing restrictions.


They could include an alternate panel in the foldout so buyers could decide which panel to place on the outside.

Joe does, and he did a fine and tasteful job in my opinion.


Sorry, but the cover art looks like a budget 70s reissue LP.

I'm passing. At $20 a throw, I expect better.


Your loss, OnyaBirri. I, for one, spend very little time poring over panels while listening to great music.

I watched "Sounder" a little while ago on TCM. I thought the movie was wonderful, but the music was terrible. It didn't destroy the movie, but it certainly didn't help it. Whoever made the decision to jettison North's score (and I wasn't aware that he had written a score for this film. I knew he had written, and recorded a score for the Gary Cooper Western "Distant Drums" which was replaced with a score by Max Steiner, but that's a different topic....) should have had their head examined.

I always liked the film "Sounder" except for the awful music score that was used. North's music sounds wonderful, hard to believe it was dumped.

" I appreciate your detailed response, but the lack of availability of original artwork is no excuse not to come up with appropriate original artwork. 1950s atomic imagery is everywhere. Packaging and aesthetics are important to some of us."


I could not give two shits over the art work or lack of, the music is what counts! You must lead a desperate life??

You know, with all this nonsense about the cover art, that I regretfully, may have had a hand in starting, it's actually starting to grow on me.

Let's hear it for the Great Music of Alex North!

At least it's not as bad as this and it seems the guy who named this album couldn't even count!
