Never heard this score- worth a blind buy?

Listen to the clips.

If you want my opinion, yes.



Thanks, Steve, will do


You will not be disapointed.

It's starting to sink in - I remember seeing this at the drive-in back in '77 and loving the score ever since. Not only is the movie just freaking solid, but the score is sublime , hard edged, the kind of Williams we don't hear anymore. Flat out brilliant.

Thanks, thank you, thanks so much to everyone who made it happen

Gotta love that "Alright you primitive screwheads, buy this f--king thing now or else we go back to 3,000 and let you fight on eBay!" paragraph. Or maybe I'm the only d'bag that is reading it that way.

I don't even know where you'd begin to read all of that into what he said.

Ordered! Should not have given it a second thought because I like Williams.

Now that my excitement has died down - I intend on ordering Black Sunday, but I'll hold off for a little while until the next Intrada batch comes out so that I can combine CDs together. Don't want to pay too much for shipping.

This is a major holy grail for a lot of people, I'm sure. 10,000 copies, I don't recall that ever being done before. Congratulations on this release!

For some reason never caught this movie, and obviously never heard the score, but Ordered!

Shame on you Basil. Don't you know you're suppose to order this ASAP with no dilly-dallying. ;-)

This is a great time for Les Baxter. Barbarian, Master of the World, Dunwich Horror, Panic in Year Zero.

And now Black Sunday!

Although the news did not produce self defecation on my part, I bow humbly to Lukas and the FSM crew for two back to back releases that will be hard to rival this year. The great titles just keep on coming!

Well, FSM brought out the big guns in the first inning. The remainder of the releases for 2010 will be a disappointment by comparison. Wake me up in 2011.

big grin

Just kidding of course, but this score is one I've been looking forward to for ages. Can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it. Huge thanks to Lukas and the rest of the FSM crew for getting this out there!

Anyone else think the "Preparations" scene in "Black Sunday" might have been temp-tracked (or at least inspired by) the "The Shark Cage Fugue" in "Jaws"?

Or, is a good minor-key Bachian fugue simply the best way to score a "preparing for battle"-type montage in a classy '70s Williams-scored thriller?

I have a feeling I'm forgetting some other similar Williams fugues from other scores.

--Can anyone recall any others offhand?

"Sorry about my fa-a-a-a-a-ce!"

"I figured it out...he's a cyst with teeth and hair."

"I got it, he looks like the bat in 'Ferngully'...!"

"He's an evil spectre!"

"Looks like a Cabbage-Patch Elvis."

Part of the "Setting the Trap" cue from "Home Alone."
