Lalo Schifrin Vol. 1 is an outstanding release in all respects; music
selections; sound quality; packaging; presentation; everything. Looking forward with great anticipation to future volumes, hopefully to also include more of his television work at some point. Keep em' comin" guys.

I ordered this set because I like Lalo Schifrin and was expecting to enjoy most of the scores, but even I was a bit surprised when I sat down and ended up listening to almost the entire box set. All of these scores are prime Schifrin.

Of course they are -- it was the 60s!

For those who use artwork for loading onto iTunes etc, has anyone made any custom artwork for each invididual release? That is cover art for each film like the smaller images that are used on the cover of the box set?

Would be cool to have some high res pieces for each film CD for cover art.

Unless Lukas and company can add some to the release page for the box set :-)

Jack - I always hope for the same thing, as I've got this box broken down into five separate cd's and would like nothing more than to have nice 600 x 600's of all that different cover art. Alas, I do a lot of Google image searches and had very little luck finding anything other than the Cincinnati Kid. Our best hope would be to somehow convince Lukas to have his artwork guy enlarge these and maybe post them alongside his online notes? Best wishes to us both!

The artwork guy is working on that. Stay tuned.

Thanks MD for the A Woman Named Jackie theme clip. I'm not familiar with it, but it sounds nice.

I have been listening to the Schifrin box, about 4 times since I received it, and it is very cool. I was most familiar with the Cincinnati Kid, having listened to the Aleph CD for the last few years. The vocal by by Ray Charles is great. The other main scores in the box ((Rhino, Once a Thief, The Venetian Affair & Sol Madrid) were all new to me, and have been a joy discovering.

Schifrin is, in my opinion, unique amongst film composers and if you like his 60's, jazz tinged movie & TV scores (Bullitt, Cool Hand Luke, Mannix, etc.) I,m sure you'll enjoy this Cincinnati Kid Box set.

Ya know, normally I don't complain when CD jewel cases arrive damaged as I have a bunch of spares that I can cannibalize to fix the damaged ones, but in this case I have to say I'd really love it if in the future FSM might consider packaging these multi-disc sets differently.

My Schifrin set arrived today and not only was the front cover broken at the bottom but the disc hinge for the first 2 CDs was broken and these kind of CD cases are a pain to replace.

Might I suggest something like that Vladimir Cosma box in the future? Or maybe something that isn't so damn fragile.

I know what you mean by the case for the set. I have to say I was really really lucky that mine was in mint condition when it arrived. I kid of dislike these kind of sets for the case reason only, You don't get as cool of artwork for each film, and it is hard with the flaps holding the cds not to damaged the artwork.

...but I can't be too picky and don't like to complain much, I am sure getting the release out took some pains and a lot of hard work for Lukas and everyone involved. It can't be the best thing sitting around and trying to decide on cases for these sets when you have to worry about the overhead and bite the bullet and release things in the manner for cost etc.

I love my set, still not able to listen to everything yet. I ended up doing a huge order along with this set since I kept putting off certain releases and crossing my fingers that certain titles would not sell out. Hard in these times juggling the releases etc. This is a fine set.

I am sure maybe someone at screen archives etc can remedy the situation. I know in the past I've jumped the gun on being angry about my order etc and in the end screen archives went above and beyond to help me out on an order issue. I was a pain to say the least. I just try to look at it from all sides now.

Am just finishing listening this through. Wow, FSM! How can you and the other companies continue to amaze us like this?

Some clues : they are smart enough, dedicated to the filmmusic art, and... we buy these CDs ! smile

This box is really a gift for all Schifrin fans.

I would ask SAE about it, but I hate to be a pest about something like this. If it were the actual artwork or disc I'd be all over it.

Oh...and an update. One of the shards from the cracked jewel case ended up in my rug and of course I found it with my bare foot while I was getting into bed. Attack of the killer CD jewel case!

James, of course SAE will help you replace whatever is broken. Please don't hesitate to ask them. Sorry about your foot!

Try these:

http://www.bagsunlimited.com/cart/detail.asp?cat=2&subcat=87&product_id=c3cd%2Dhcc

A bit pricey (about $20 for five of them), but they'll hold five CDs. I bought a few to replace a scuffed-up case for a used copy of FSM's Mutiny On The Bounty I bought in the FSM trading post, and it worked like a charm. smile

BTW, I bought my copy of the Schifrin set from MovieMusic, and yes, one of the disc holders was broken. Good thing I had these spares around for just such an emergency. wink

You're right. Pricey. I'll do without that. I have a place I go in Santa Ana that may carry them cheaper.

Lukas, Joe and Jeff - Thanks a million for this artwork. It's a classy touch by FSM and is like icing on the cake for my great sounding cd's. It's really a complete package. Thanks for that.

Now when will we get the Johnny Mandel and David Raksin box set artwork? Ha-ha......

Thanks so much for the artwork for each title!

I will update my iTunes as soon as I get home. :-)
