Any predictions about TRUE GRIT selling out quickly or will there be copies remaining in the future?

It will not sell out quickly.

I'm also certain it will be great. So it will definitely be down to only 2,999 after tomorrow.

In all honesty we don't like to treat film music releases like unwanted pregnancies (particularly big and important titles like this). We would rather them do well out of the gate and then coast for a while.

That said, I hope the title does well enough for us to break even and continue to be around for some time so others can enjoy the greatness of Elmer and The Duke!

Thank you for doing that. It is sad to see a very limited run of anything that sells out in less than a week (even days). This also give people time to combine orders and save on postage.

True Grit is, for me, one of the major 2013 releases. Ordering immediately tomorrow with Intrada's 'White Dawn' (Mancini) from SAE.

Same here, along with a couple of others I've been saving in my cart.

Then there's Bernstein's THE MIRACLE next week!

You and I both...just for the covers alone! Gotta love that Golden Age artwork. Even the crappiest of films had great one sheets.

Ironically, when it came to Grit we felt the one sheet was lacking thus Jim did his own thing. It's 100% pure DUKE!

I'll order True Grit for sure. I've waited 44 years! smile

MV, any chance you can do some Max Steiner?

No Steiner planned for the immediate future, but you never know.

Most of the Golden Age titles that tickle our fancy have been spoken for, but you never know what might fall into our laps. smile

I'll tell you one thing -- Herrmann is the one composer I would KILL to do a release of. Literally KILL. wink Perhaps one day. In the meantime, we definitely have some Tiomkin coming shortly and, with any luck, Waxman, Mancini, North and a Newman.

I know. I can't wait for the Miracle.

We actually had some of those elements in our office for a brief stint (on occasion, our offices are used as a sort of "CASABLANCA" for various labels and their respective materials). Oh boy -- out of all the titles I have seen come through our "terminal" that one had me green with jealousy. Such an amazing score! I can't wait to hear it!

And many thanks for SHANE! I still play it a lot! smile

Ordered, immediately!!!

Great release.

Great release.


This, along with WHITE DAWN, PLEASURE OF HIS COMPANY and SEBASTIAN. I calculate that almost 90 percent of my order is mono... but all classic film music.

With the involvement of Chris Malone, this one is automatic. Not getting it would be like ignoring THE STAR WARS ANTHOLOGY CD box-set back in 1994.

Give Chris Malone a crack at the NIGHT DIGGER tapes and then release it. Killer stuff.

So my Bernstein collection is woefully small, but I like his western work. I have the Magnificent Seven and The Comancheros. If you had to choose between The Shootist / Sons of Katie Elder and True Grit, which would you choose? At the moment, I'm leaning towards True Grit...

(Yes, I know that the correct answer is both, but money only goes so far and there's too many good releases out these days).

Chris.

I love Jim Titus' artwork so I mean no disrespect. I simply did this as an educational exercise!! (I'm also a graphic design student so I can always use the experience.) smile
