I have that Atlantis CD with the hologram cover as well...I am not sure if it is a limited edition or not though.

I'm pretty sure www.michaelgiacchinomusic.com is a fan site, and not his official site.

If I'm not mistaken it's both!

I know someone who found an Atlantis The Lost Empire CD with an alternate cover. I think it was a hologram. Wonder if that was a limited edition too?

It's limited to 20,000 and seems readily available... it took me several ebay auctions to sell mine (the cover was not in autograph-able condition).

Thanks for the confirmation.

I listened to the clips releaseda few days ago (in the "long version") and continue to have high hopes for this "John Carter". Will not be a masterpiece as I expected from the very first preview of a few months ago and there are several things that did not convince me.
For example, track 2, "Get Carter" has a segment ripped from "Escaping Gotha" from "Medal of Honor - Frontline".

The subsequent exposure of the main themes, although different melodically, is accompanied in an extremely similar way.

You will want to keep hold of John Carter's and Dejah's themes from the radio show as these cues do NOT appear in full on the soundtrack. And what everyone has been calling Pursuit Of Dejah is Sab Than Pursues The Princess. smile

you mean the 75 min long album does not include those 2 full-theme renditions? is this like the missing main theme full arrangement from Silvestri's CAPTAIN AMERICA?


How is this possible?

There is a beautiful 10 minute suite on www.michaelgiacchinomusic.com in very high quality. The stunning main theme reminds me of "Stranger in Paradise" from Kismet, which is a bit distracting, but I do love what I am hearing, and look forward to purchasing the cd.

I can't find this suite on that site; is it somewhere non-obvious?

Meanwhile, I'm having trouble with the notion that MG has put out a score without a track named "World's Worst Something".

Hey! Look at the first line under 'product description on Amazon. It says: "LIMITED EDITION physical soundtrack run. Get yours before they are gone! "

http://www.amazon.com/John-Carter-Soundtrack/dp/B006Z21ZHO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329751160&sr=8-1

That convinced me - I've got mine on pre-order now.

I read all of Burrough's "Mars" books, back in my early teens. That's about the best age to read them. I was spellbound by the dashing John Carter, and the "incomparable Dejah Thoris," as Burroughs is wont to call her.

Actually, the first 3 books, "A Princess of Mars," "Gods of Mars," and "The Warlord of Mars" were my favorites. After those, Burroughs gets into the adventures of the children of Carter and Thoris: "Thuvia Maid of Mars," and their son, whose name escapes me. There were 10 books in the series, all of which can be found here and there. Then, in the mid-60's as I recall, there was an 11th, "John Carter of Mars," consisting of 2 novella-length stories that had been found in the Burroughs estate, but they were only OK, especially since the second of them again left Carter in a kind cliffhanger spot, and with no further written explanation of whether or not he ever managed to escape.

Which, all things considered, is perhaps the best way to take our leave of this pulp-era hero, in the way his author-creator was in the habit of doing anyway.

(Though I hope the movie version doesn't have a cliffhanger ending. The first book, "A Princess of Mars," does, something about the incomparable Dejah Thoris being trapped in a revolving tower room which only reaches its entrance again once a year..... which is quickly resolved in the very beginning of "The Gods of Mars." That's the way of the pulp adventure stories, always leaving you hanging...)

Convinced you of what? That there'll be a limited run of 10,000?

Is there any more info on this out there somewhere?

Convinced me to pre-order it now. I knew I would get it sometime or other, but with that limited note in there, it's best that I be safe and not sorry - just in case.
