I won't even pay $30 for Alien. The Eidelman re-recording is enough for me at the moment.
Though I'm sure I'll end up getting it someday.


$30 is a lot, but I still recommend the Intrada Alien over the Eidelman. The original is a much better performance of the score, and the Eidelman CD lacks the echoplex effects (which is why there are gaping silences in the main title -- they are supposed to be filled with echo effects).

No single score is worth $120.

I've paid twice that on two seperate occasions - so I'm forced to disagree wink

This set is a revelation! I hope FSM gets the permission to strike up another batch.




Wait... did Supercoif just say that out loud to John-John???? Kal, yer slippin'!



Not at all. I had just started reading the Superman line of titles when I learned to read in 1962. Superman revealed his identity to President Kennedy in ACTION COMICS no. 309, cover date February 1964, but released in early December of 1963. It was printed and shipping to newstands when you know what happened.

Oh, there is NO comparison. I ditched that Varese recording YEARS ago.

By all means let us know if you are. I think... I don't understand this question?

Puzzled am I.

Mine is on its way. Hopefully I should get it for the weekend (although, with Easter, I suspect it won't...)

And they did laugh in my face.

But did they kick sand in your face? smile

So is this the real reason Kennedy was assassinated? To stop him revealing Supie's real identity? Finally, after all these years, the truth is out. eek

That "magic bullet" theory is making a bit more sense now...

1) I don't think Superman would tell his identity to George Bush today...

2) I was also "blown away" today but it's not music related.
