I am still hoping for an Elmer Bernstein or a Victor Young before the year is out. Looking forward to Heaven Can Wait/ Racing With the Moon but will pass on the Jerry Lewis film scores.

Re: "Heaven Can Wait" and "CDs will ship the last week of November, but preorders placed at Kritzerland usually ship one to five weeks early (we’ve been averaging four weeks)."

That means they could be getting close to shipping them! Can't wait for "Heaven Can Wait"!!!

Was hoping it would be this week, but alas, pressing plant and printers are so busy at this time of year it's just nuts.

Thanks! I appreciate the follow-up, which will stop me from hovering over the mailbox each time I'm expecting the mail carrier! I wasn't expecting to spend so much of my retirement in pursuit of hard to find soundtracks!

Just heard it could be Monday or Tuesday, so very soon. And the good news is we also will get the title we're announcing on Monday so that one can ship right away.

Do we know what that title is yet?

If not is it golden age?

Has the composer been on Kritzerland before?

Bruce (haineshisway), which mail could I use to contact you? I have tried to contact you through the "orders mail" from Kritzerland, but may be I´m doing something wrong...

Could you tell me of any site where I could get a copy of "Heaven can wait"? I have tried though several places but I´m unable to find anywhere they still have an spare copy.

Thanks in advance...

Spook, thank you for the tip. I´ve finally got a copy (I hope so) from Chris Soundtrack Corner.

Bruce (haineshisway), thanks for everything. Hope I haven´t caused any trouble. And hope you´ll continue releasing scores for more years to come.

Thanks a lot to both of you.

I got it!!!!! But I found that the cue details -- song title, artist, album title, genre -- aren't known by GraceNotes. Hope they'll have it by the time everyone else downloads it!

Further thoughts: "Heaven Can Wait" is essentially a one-hit wonder, with the catchy and bouncy principal theme played again and again. I loved that melody when I saw the movie and love the version of it that Grusin put on his compilation album "Cinemagic." But you probably don't want to keep hearing mostly the same melody again and again. A problem for me are the many times the theme builds to the bridge where it then goes in an exciting direction, but far too many of these cues build to the bridge and then just collapse, leaving me, at least, VERY frustrated and hungering for the second and more satisfying part. After "Heaven Walk," "Walk To Home," "New Walk/Last Goodbye/Last Goodbye extension," "Betty's Entrance/Decision To Farnsworth," "Meeting Of The Board," "At The Drive-In," "Garden Walk," "New Goodbye/Let's Walk" and "Max," they finally give us the second part (after so many frustrating endings!), but it's not until then, with track 9 ("End Theme"), and even then it's less than 3 minutes. In comparison, that theme lasts a little longer (4:35) on Grusin's "Cinemagic," although I need to acknowledge that what I took off the actual DVD, once we get past the dialog, is almost identical in length to the CD's "End Theme," though it seems to me to have more of an urgency than the rather languid version found on this CD. Interestingly, in 2 of the extras, which are at the end of the "Heaven Can Wait" part of the CD and just before the start of "Racing With The Moon," there's "End Theme Alternate," which has an even better transition into the hotter part of the end theme and which I actually prefer over the cue labeled "End Theme."

Frankly, it's hard to believe that this is all Kritzerland could find. I don't want to come across as ungrateful, because I truly am delighted to have this, and it has long been one of my personal holy grails. So I don't mean to criticize those who put in so much time and hard work to give us this treasure. And yet I still find it a bit frustrating. These days I listen to much of my music from my iPod playlists and was able to include the cue from Grusin's "Cinemagic" (twice) as well as the closing scene from the film, rearranging some of the cues (and moving "End Theme" up a bit) and ending my own "Heaven Can Wait" playlist with this (the closing credits music starts at 3:18):

But fans of Dave Grusin's "Heaven Can Wait" are still going to love Kritzerland's new CD!

Just got the CD today and now spinning. Heaven Can Wait: This is truly case in which a basically mono-thematic short score is absolute perfection for the film! Kudos to Grusin and Team. And thank you Bruce for the "score rescue"!!
