There is a guy who doesn't get much attention, Manos Hadjidakis. ILLYA DARLING was the stage version of NEVER ON SUNDAY, and a nice expansion it was. Someday we will see THE 300 SPARTANS if it hasn't disintegrated by now.

The 300 Spartans is one of my few remaining grails.

I only have 162 Spartans - the rest have gone missing, those damn Spartans.

Half a grail is better than no grail at all.

Less than sixty left.

Are you able to reveal how many copies each of the "other" major soundtracks sites have been allocated?

The reason being because I see only 1000 copies in the Ltd. Edition.. and a reference already of SAE having "Hundreds.." (*had* hundreds I should perhaps say!)

I've *just this second* pre-ordered one from Intrada... and it obviously said "This title may be back-ordered.." - which makes sense with it being an April release date.

However, I'm now wondering if I missed the boat and Intrada's own allocation will have already sold out?

Sorry, I'm paranoid I know!

John.

I can't really reveal what the dealers took. I don't know whether Intrada has any left or not - they may not actually list it until they have CDs in hand. Not sure if Craig has any or not. We're sold out.

We're sold out.

Congrats, BK. Is that a record sell-out time for Kritzerland?

Like Handstand, I was initially attracted to the badass retro cover art, but it was the samples that really sealed the deal. To date, we only have one other Delerue score in our collection (Day of the Dolphin), so I'm eager to more of his work. Can't wait to give this one a spin.

I think this and Twisted Nerve were the fastest sellouts.

I am surprised with that artwork, the type of movie it was and, of course Delerue, you didn't opt to press more copies.

It simply wasn't an option on this one.


So if I understand this correctly, this release was licensed on a no more than 1000 copies or not at all basis? What I find puzzling in many of these old score releases is that in the liner notes only sometimes is it mentioned how they came to light. Yet what every buyer of these releases wants to know is what happened to the master tapes. Where have they been all these years, How were they stored. Who was contacted for the license, who discovered the master tapes (if they were missing in the first place). Sometimes you can read this information in the booklets, but often not. Maybe it's secretive in fear of competition. In a case where a release is simply a vinyl-transfer it's understandable that such information is held back. But this clearly is a release that was never done before in any form, so it would be nice to know. I obviously didn't receive my copy yet so it may be mentioned in the booklets, but if not, I'm sure many people would like to know.

I wasn't familiar with this film or score, my loss, but if it sold out in one day, doesn't that suggest that the limit was set too low?

Maybe Kritzerland could have made more money, and still elicit the excitement of scarcity, with a limit of 2000. You don't even have to press the second thousand unless they're called for, and people who are not online every day of the year would be a potential source of those additional orders.

I don't think you've missed out quite yet - other dealers still have it, I think.

It's pretty much all covered in the booklet.

Bruce, is the cd for ANYA in stereo
or mono? From the soundclips I couldn't
really tell.

Btw, THANKYOU for the Subways Are For
Sleeping disc. I love it! Sounds great!
I really miss the lovely voice of Carol
Lawrence, Sydney Chaplin's unique voice,
too. For that matter, i just plain miss
Broadway shows like this. Sigh.

Do you have any cd's left of The Grand Tour
for sale?

Anya is in glorious stereo. Don't have any Grand Tours - that was after the bad business. Carol is alive and well and sounding and looking pretty great. I recorded an LA revival of Do I Hear A Waltz in which she appeared and we got along famously.

In the mid 70s I had one night in NYC. (Actually 2 but our college wind ensemble was playing Towne Hall the second night.) A bunch of us decided dinner and show. Tickets were obtained from from the booth at Times Square. What a tough choice we had. Henry Fonda was doing Clarence Darrow. John Cullum was doing Shenandoah. Burton was appearing in Equus. Rocky Horror was playing, Rex Harrison was appearing in a show as well. The Grand Tour was running with Joel Grey. Despite all of those great shows, we headed off broasway to see Godspell. I loved that show, but when I look back....sigh...
