My guess is The Star Chamber, The Driver and Black Widow. A most solid trifecta of reissues.

Well, since Black Widow is one of the best scores of the 1980s, and since The Driver and The Star Chamber are about to make their debut on Blu-ray, I should think I'd be dancing a jig over such a release.


Superb set! As someone who owns both Intrada CDs, is there anything I'm missing that this release would provide? (Even if not you'll be making money from me soon, I still need to order Too Late Blues, and a couple of other KLs on my list as well.)

Same presentations, slightly remastered, especially The Driver - so, if that's not enough then there's no reason to buy if you have the other two discs. We figured not everyone got them and given the imminent Blu-ray releases, we liked the tie-in aspect, along with the fact that Mr. Small's music should reach as many people as possible.

Those interested in the music of Michael Small should be aware that Marathon Man is coming out on Blu-ray in the near future(in the UK) and most probably here as well.

Also, if anyone is not aware of his epic score to Mountains of the Moon they should search it out. It's quite good...

Small was brilliant and unique. And, of course, he did write two of the scores on our CD in the 1980s, but, you know, whether the 80s people who have to have everything written in that decade will bite or not remains to be seen.

I already have the three Small titles, so my excitement is confined to Too Late Blues this time around.

I enjoy THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE, that came and went in heartbeat. I'm confident there are a few more Small discoveries to be had, POODLE SPRINGS maybe?

Then there's NIGHT MOVES... I hope somebody finds that one. THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE and COMES A HORSEMAN are my favorite of his more melodic scores, but I also enjoy the scores Bruce is re-releasing in this group. I wish I didn't already have them, so I could support these releases. I do recommend them highly, though, especially for fans of 70s creepy paranoid thriller scores who missed the initial releases. Nobody did those like Michael Small, on the big screen, and Billy Goldenberg on the small screen.

Well, if even one from this 3 scores will be as good as Postman Always Rings Twice, I will get it! Especially with this price smile

Or does at least a release of the M&E tracks if possible. I think Lukas said the recordings of this score are lost.

I hope too !

And I consider the movie as film noir's last gleaming... What a masterpiece, beautifully photographed by the late Bruce Surtees.

Many of the "lost" have been miraculously found in recent years, where they were misfiled or in boxes with the wrong titles or whatever. I never assume the worst...

Never say never. Things are filed incorrectly, or they just turn up. It's happened over and over again. Then you just have to pray that the right people get them and make them sound good and sequence them so you can actually listen and enjoy (I know iTunes makes this easier now). I cannot tell you the number of times I have gotten a grail and been so disappointed with either sound (knowing it could be SO much better if done by others) or the sequence.

But Night Moves (Warner Bros.) is not Kritzerland territory?

I got my copy of Too Late Blues yesterday, very fast!

I've been enjoying it greatly. I like soft blues so this excellent cd is a change from the powerful full orchestra scores. Anything by David Raksin is well worth having.

Thanks Bruce for yet another (nearly) golden age gem. smile

I hope people will find it as addicting as I do.

I should have thought more folks would have it by now.

Call me addicted, even though my copy is still in transit. I was lucky to get a reprieve with Small having the old issues, but Kritzerland is merciless.

I think I'm becoming addicted........ big grin

I do enjoy this cd very much, most of it is very relaxing and a nice change of pace from louder full orchestra scores. It has a nice blues sound to it. Parts of it remind me of Laura.

Bruce, it was only mailed out 4 days ago so people should be getting their copies any day now. I got mine in 2 days which is unusually fast. Oh Bruce, I got the second package you sent me yesterday, that too took only 2 days. I guess the post office know how much I like this music! cool

This is one fabulous release. "A Song After Sundown" alone is worth the price of the CD. Great music! I ordered the Blu-ray of "Too Late Blues" based on this release alone! And I've never seen the film!

Bruce is also VERY correct when he says "never say never".....how many times have we heard that some particular score was absolutely, unequivocally, positively lost forever and will NEVER turn up EVER......until it does. NEVER say NEVER!

Any chance of a Kritzerland release of WILL PENNY?
