This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Logan’s Run (1976 Feature Film)

The FSM discography page shows Logan's Run as being available as 'used,' in blue. Has this title gone OOP?

Hi Anabel, I did check at SAE and it is there. It's just that the last time I looked at FSM it was reassuringly in red, by which I assumed it to mean there has been no break in the continuity of it's formal availability in the FSM line since being introduced.

The blue means that although available in some form, it is a second hand disc. Is this a right or a wrong interpretation over apparent availability of an FSM stock item?

Here I thought someone was posting here about listening to this in anticipation of Intrada's Damnation Alley - as I certainly am.

By the way, I've always found SAE's listings scrupulously accurate as to condition, so I would trust the item page there vs. the FSM page. On the other hand, what do I know? wink (I do remember they just kept printing and printing this sucker, and rightly so!)

Quite odd indeed : this page lists the cd as "used"

That's my point, Sean. It got printed in very generous quantity back when . . . so much so it seemed the title would always be there. But now, how plentifully is it in supply? The status of Logan's Run is a bit obscure. On Amazon UK, it seems to be available both as an 'on demand' as well as the official FSM release. So I'm curious as to how many actual hardcopies there might be.

Also, for what it's worth, the original album version (in the bad old sound) is available on Spotify, but not the expansion. Unlike the digital version of Gremlins, for instance, which does seem to be the FSM release

New FSM copies on Amazon UK are going for £50+. Same for The Bravados, as it so happens. I take it any pristine Logan's Run FSM genuine article is almost entirely in circulation. I was mystified when the WB archive edition first appeared. Maybe someone in the know can shed some light on how dispersed the FSM CD has become?

If this questions means you do not own this CD, Anabel, you must, must, must have it.

Buy it for yourself for whatever winter-solstice-related holiday you celebrate. I insist! smile

  • Oh, yes, you will be! LOGAN'S RUN is one of the worst "major" SF films ever made. It's right up there with BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES, DAMNATION ALLEY, THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR and WESTWORLD as examples of tired, trite and dumbed-down "Hollywood" SF movie junk food. If it wasn't for the Goldsmith score, I'd say burn every copy of LOGAN'S RUN. It's crap.

    I'd say the first half is great. Its message was a bit more than "you shouldn't kill people", with themes of youthful narcissism and safe spaces conveyed in a way that serves as more of a cultural warning given the youth in this current digital age, beyond a mere time capsule. The second half... oy. The moment when Box's purpose was revealed (exactly after Jenny Agutter covered up! hint hint! greatest special effect ever!), it felt like a death spiral from which the film could never emerge. Easily, Peter Ustinov's worst role, though he portrayed a bad character dutifully.

    I also wouldn't drag Westworld under that bus you listed, but if you feel that way about Beneath, then Battle must've contorted you inside out like a Brundlefly!

    Are you kidding? ;-) It's been a favorite of mine for many years -- that's why i threw a glance when i saw the thread had been "bumped" -- ; i was simlply answering to Grecchus by posting a link showing that CD is still available.

    And it has been available for years. All I was wondering is, just how available is the original FSM right now? Intrada's Capricorn One has sold out in two widely separated print runs. It had gone 'underground' for several years in between major releases.

    It seems that even with very marginal releases, some titles from popular composers disappear all of a sudden, while others are like the proverbial can perpetually being kicked down the alleyway. I'd go so far to say there's a kind of amorphous bias against some titles.

    All those happy with their FSM edition of Logan's Run, say "Aye!" smile

    Yes, i understand and i hope it won't get same "suddenly vanishing treatment" that KELLY'S HEROES got recently.

    AYE!

    If you remember FSM produced more copies of Logans Run than the license permitted them to do. They rectified the issue with the licensor, and perhaps in the process changed the licensing agreement so FSM could keep the title in print as long as they like. Not casting aspersions, just going off of memory here.

    Last I saw the film score was down to 150 or fewer units. That was 2013. I wouldn't wait if I were you guys.

    The TV series scoring was down to less than 58 units in 2016.

    LOGAN remains a favorite of mine despite it's surfeit of "fromage." I'm sure my affection for the film was due to being able to catch it on it's opening night in a pristine 70mm 6 track stereo presentation. The now sadly gone Mayfair Theatre on the west side of Milwaukee had a killer sound system sporting a low end to die for. Goldsmith's effort was highlighted there to stunning effect and it just swept me past the films' less effective moments.

    The only moments that remain truly cringeworthy are the ones with Michael Anderson Jr. (the director's son) and Farrah Fawcett in their silver lame outfits at the cosmetic surgery center, "New You." It's regretable that the Blu-Ray of this film is so mediocre, both in picture and sound.

    If you haven't bought this FSM disc, you are no real Goldsmith fan.

    You guys: I confess that I listen to the Logan TV disc much more than I ever listen to the movie music.

    I first saw it when it first played, to big fanfare, on CBS.

    So I bow down to you, sir! smile
