It's always weird to me when people come and say "missed it" - I confirmed what this was going to be a week ago (over a week ago), it was announced here on Monday at six in the morning as well as on just about every other place one could announce and it was available until Wednesday at eleven in the morning.

Uh, people have lives of their own? I was actually planning to buy this but my schedule got busy this week and I also missed out. It's not that we don't want to buy it....

First, thank you for answering my question about picking quantities above. It was informative.

Second, its easy to miss these things be it off on holiday (summer holidays started last week in Germany, Northern Ireland and other places), been sick or simply only had time check the net once a week.

I've had it happen myself where I've been away for a few days, popped on here and discovered I'd missed a CD I rather wanted as it sold out in 24 hours.

I don't know any film music collectors who have lives of their own, sorry. smile

I continue to fail to understand why you (and a few others) seem to assume everyone reads every post.

Bruce decided on a 1200 run. Very often copies would be left on the shelves for months or years. In this case it sold out in 4 days. If you're not paying attention you'll miss out. It's how it is.

FYI - JW Fan Net reports that it is still available from MovieMusic.com and BuySoundtrax.com. Get moving all who feel they "missed it" or you may miss it again...

I don't know, perhaps they should be. It's also been on the main page of this board since Monday at six. You'd have to go three days without having seen it to have missed it. I guess some do, but you know what - I see an awful lot of posts here on those three days in an awful lot of threads (I'm sure you can guess which) and I can't help it if certain titles don't pique people's interest enough to open the thread that says NEW KRITZERLAND: THE MISSOURI BREAKS until the title is sold out. As I've said repeatedly, if anyone missed out they can drop me an e-mail and I'll put them on a waiting list.

And it's limited, it doesn't matter how early it's announced, or how publically it is known in advance, as long as there is a fixed amount that sells out very quickly, somebody is going to miss it. This is true of any label, and not a complaint directed toward Kritzerland, but rather the idea expressed above.

But there's a curious mindset that has happened and the number keeps getting lowered for that mindset. It used to be if it was 3000 units for most titles everyone felt they could wait and wait and wait. Then that became 2500, then 2000 and now it's 1500. Everyone just sits and you sell less and it takes even longer. Even though Intrada no longer publishes the number they're doing (and believe me there IS a number), people are sitting and not purchasing until they do those going out of print on things - then suddenly everyone moves, and then others lose out and say "I waited too long." It's a curious phenomenon.

Who cares about limitations and the numbers pressed anymore? After the FSM re- or over-pressing for example? After the many re-releases of sold out limited editions on other labels? For me it is only about the music. I waited years for the release of the film recordings for "Missouri Breaks". I'm thankful to own your magnificent album of "The Far Horizons" and to have Fielding's "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure" on Intrada. They may sell only 1000 copies of that score. And? As long as they make some money with it, great! No, I don't believe any longer in these so called "limited Editions". It the music that counts. Imho!

I agree with Chris, it is all about the music. However, we haven't had too many rapid sell outs recently so this one seems to have come as a surprise to some people.

Predicting how many copies a title will sell is difficult.I try to pick up CDs that I want as quickly as possible.

A would have to disagree, there have been plenty of sell outs on the "smaller labels" (not a put-down, but I think we can agree that Varese, Intrada and La-La Land are the "big" labels), as only Varese and Intrada do "unlimited" releases, all other labels have limited runs. This was just a title more folks had an interest in - a safe rule to go by, "If it's not Intrada, it's not unlimited," will lead to less misses of titles. As has been stated by some labels, the unlimited runs are affecting sales downward as us buyers can now wait... and wait ...and wait. Look to see the limited runs returning to a label near you, or that label won't be near you anymore...

For the labels it's more than just about the music, it's about making a profit so they can release more music, to make more profit...

Well, I'm sure there are other labels that would disagree with your choice of only three as the "big" labels - not that that sort of moniker is necessary or all that interesting.

We've been fortunate to have a few rather quick sellouts recently, and those have been very helpful.

So, not only is turnaround fair play, it's very, very good for business.

For me, the 3 film tracks on the Ryko had me really wanting to hear more, so I waited about 14 years to get that wish filled. Can't wait!

Utterly, totally heartbroken to miss this!

I was on vacation for a couple weeks and having such a wonderful time I didn't even think to check that there'd be a release I'd have so liked to order - or that it would sell out so quickly!

If anyone has buyer's remorse and decides they don't want theirs, or buys a copy and then dislikes it (unimaginable!) give me a shout. smile

There still seems to be a few copies kicking around at Tarantula records... good luck!

Checked it out, cool site, thanks for pointing the way to it. Unfortunately, not a trace of Missouri Breaks, but glad to find a new resource. Thanks again.

The version on Tarantula appears (based on the artwork) to be the Varese reissue of the OST from a few years back. Couldn't hurt to e-mail them and ask, though.

Also, make sure you e-mail Bruce to get on the wait list, as indicated above - maybe you'll get lucky!

Looking forward to receiving this release some time in the next few weeks. Thanks for this release, Kritzerland!
