I'm still kind of shocked that we will have 32 of the 65 "first season" BTAS episodes! Yes there's a bunch more and maybe someday they will see the light of day but really!!! A new 4CD set after so many of us were starting to think it was never going to happen!

MV if you were here I would give you the biggest hug ever!
Just looking at my desk right now I see Batman the Animated (vol 1 that I'm so happy to have signed),1941, Hook, Jane Eyre, Medal of Honor box set, Human Target, The Cape, and Star Trek the Motion Picture (3cd) [these are just the ones not on the shelf right now!]
These past few years you guys have been nailing releases left and right. I and other score lovers like me owe you guys big time! I know the amount of work that goes into these releases is staggering to say the least and we don't say it often enough [to you and all the other labels really], Thank You! Every release I look at from lala makes me go "Wow that would be cool".

Unfortunately I can't buy them all but I just wanted to say publicly to you folks Thank you for making this music available to us and I will cherish these discs for as long as I'm here and look forward to whats ahead!

Back to BTAS for a sec
For anyone interested in seeing what BTAS episodes are on these sets and what still remains un-released I've started a spreadsheet. here
https://docs.google.com/a/pointclickmedia.ca/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhCMUqI2n3jndDdFWS1ETXVkVkhNbzJxY3ZJV0JsN1E#gid=0

If I get the time I may indicate episodes that are represented in the "Gotham City Overture" so folks can see just how much of it is really represented in the new music released anyway.

I won`t by the 2 Batman releases. The orchestra is too small-television-size for me.

It's not the size that counts, it's how it's used.

While working on Vol 2 a number of episodes of the first "65" got the axe and will be featured on Vol 3: Robin's Reckoning Parts 1 and 2, Day of the Samurai and The Clock King to name a few.

Our plan is to have Vol 3 out next year (possibly another 4 disc set). That would be all the music we would release from the first 65. We are also contemplating releasing an empty box when vol 3 comes out so people can put all 3 volumes inside. It would be like $5 (or around there) if people wanted to buy it separately or free with purchase of Vol 3...something like that.

Then we would focus on the "Adventures of Batman and Robin" and "The New Batman Adventures."

Hopefully, Superman TAS, Justice League (TAS and Unlimited) and the two BTAS animated direct to DVD movies (Subzero and Batwoman) will also see the light of day in the next few years.

This is some of the finest music written for television. It's been a joy and honor to bring these out and we hope to continue to mine this incredible slate of superhero music.

We are also looking into stuff like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. The ealry 90's was truly the 2nd Golden Age of Animation at Warners Bros. We are doing our part to preserve that legacy.

... Re-releasing it with slightly less doesn't screw over everyone that bought in the first place expecting it to be a truly limited edition.

It's not "sad bullshit," it's a record company respecting their customers for once....


So, in your opinion every *straight* reissue, every new limited edition of whatever title, expanded and improved, means a "lack of respect" for customers? roll eyes


Yes as people who bought it the first time would feel cheated for doing so if a better release surface or even the same as many buys it only because of its limitation...sad but true, but now people who missed it can buy it again and those who wants the whole enchilada has e-bay to turn to (possible getting it for less as a new version is out again)

This is fact and not something I say is right, but it is facts...

By the way do you respect *so much* your customers when decreasing prices for CDs that other customers paid fully? Oh, you have too much respect for your customers? Really? What a nice hypocrisy.

What utter nonsense. When items don't sell, they are discounted to clear out inventory. This is and always has been true of any business. If a CD simply isn't selling, the label can choose to let it die on the shelf and take a loss, or they can try to move what stock they have and hope to make back some of their investment. In many cases, at a certain date, the license will expire, past which the label can no longer sell the CD. If you were sitting on hundreds of CDs that you paid to license and manufacture, and in two months you would lose the right to sell any more, wouldn't you discount what remains in hopes of making some money, or taking less of a loss?

I don't expect any label to prove their loyalty to me by sacrificing any hope of profit.

MV,

I will gladly support the release of all of those but particularly Superman TAS, Animimaniacs and Tiny Toons. Those last two are dream releases for me, I've been waiting with hope since they aired. I thoroughly agree that the 90's was a second age for Warner's cartoon scoring and as much as possible deserves a release

[edit]
It kills me that they haven't released these series properly in the UK (and the later two Gold Age Looney Toons DVDs, and latter Batman:TAS DVDs, and Disney have only release the first three series of The Muppets)

[EDIT 2]

BTW I love the idea of a slip box. I hope you can do it.

Can't wait for more Trek, thanks again LLL.

To be honest I do have a thing for the scores to Voyager.

MV if you do decide to release music to Voyager please consider these 2 part epi-scores:

Year of Hell (McCarthy)

Scorpion (Chattaway)

Dark Frontier (Bell)

There are plenty of single epi-scores but these scores above come to mind.

Just a friendly request.

Thanks.

No, honey. Flash 2CD; Fugitive 2CD; Independence Day 2CD, Alien Resurrection 2CD (and much more!): I purchased all four for $30 each, and now they are for sell at $20 each. Didn’t MV say he has “too much respect for his customers”? Very well, then I want my $40 back. NOW!!!!

"Respect"? La-La Land should just shut up.

guess i best start saving now! this is a pretty impressive vision to strive for even though i'm sure it's far from settled. but awesome. i'll be on board for all of it. really love the theme to justice league and would certainly welcome a release there. DC's animated-verse is pretty thoughtful and well executed and i'm glad people feel that way about the music too!

How about The Underdwellers? When I watched through the entire series a couple years ago it was one I especially noticed and remember it had a great theme.

(Though seeing Grey Ghost and Heart of Ice on Vol. 2 are good, as those are probably the best of them all, along with that one that had a really jazzy score, which I forget right now....I think the one where Bulleck was framed, maybe?)

This is fantastic. Those shows had some terriffic Stalling-like scores by great composers (Bruce Broughton, Don Davis, Carl Johnson and others).

ok MV You just couldn't let us pick our jaws off the floor from the Vol 2 and you had to come out and say Vol 3 plus Other WB work! yep the future is lookin good.

As for the box to put them in I'd certainly go for that!

I'm conflicted. On the one hand, you have completely ignored everything I said and responded with ignorant petulance. On the other hand, you called me "honey," so I think you may have a crush on me. Sweet!

Once again you're comparing apples and oranges. You've got a knack for fallacious reasoning.

No one forced you to purchase any albums at the full price when they were originally released. You could have waited. LLL discounting their releases to shift units doesn't screw anyone over except for LLL who take the loss in profit.

Give it a rest already or put forward a cogent argument.

By that logic, Amazon should refund me $35, now that the Alien blu-ray set is going for $28.96. And what the hell, Super 8's now at $11.99, I want my $2 back from when I bought it at $13.99! Since they surely respect me as a customer and all.

Yeah, suddenly it seems pretty silly, huh?

Since we're talking about WB scores, any hope for a Police Academy release?

Anyway, I wish I could be at the Comic-Con. Batman and DS9 will be mine! smile

The orchestra is too small-television-size for me.

Which is funny, because B:TAS has always been praised for having "big-sounding" scores that feel more like film music than television music. And with a team of composers working their magic across this series, there is a wide variety of music and themes. Similar style, yes, but it's all great to listen to and never boring. You'll be missing out. (Although so will I, but only because of the price. frown )
