This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Outland

I received my copy this afternoon, and must say that I'm thrilled. Sonics are wonderful. I also think the actual tracks are a much more effective listening experience than the soundtrack album—the sense of tension is brilliantly conveyed. Thanks Lukas!

I received mine today and I'm about to listen as I run some errands. Nice booklet, too.

I'd love to buy this CD, but I'm going to be unable to before I'm paid at the end of the month. How likely is it that there'll still be copies available at the end of the month?

It's Goldsmith - don't forget your ebay password.


Don't listen to mildcigar - he says the same thing about EVERY limited release (Goldsmith or not).

At 5000 copies, it'll most likely still be around at the end of the month.

& more importantly, it's an FSM release. Intrada & LaLaLand stuff seems to sell out rapidly, but when was the last time an FSM release disappeared in a hurry?

Bloomin' 'eck!!! Yet ANOTHER must have this year - ordered!!!

I've actually never seen the film, but have enjoyed the LP release of this soundtrack for a while now - will be great to have both the film & album versions on this set. Must say I'm becoming a great fan of these expanded + original album version releases. Ditto with Star Trek III. If someone could do the same with the original Star Wars trilogy (particularly Empire) I'd be a very happy man wink (I know dream on!)

Another thing about this release which I am really excited about, is the John Williams Ladd Company Logo theme! Such a small thing, but really seems part of the original soundtrack, as it was to Blade Runner, and as 20th Century Fox Fanfare is to Star Wars. Could be a nifty new 'extra' for future soundtrack releases, to contain the companies musical fanfare first? Guess there'd be copyright problems galore there though?

Anyways, THANK YOU yet again FSM - you just keep raising the bar on your releases! I've been stuck at home for the past 2+ years with an auto-immune disease, and I have days were depression overwhelms me. Music has been my absolute savior on my bad days, and many of your releases have helped immeasurably to bring some lightness into my life during these times. THANK YOU Lukas Kendall, Mike Matissino, and co.

big grin

- John

Yeah, I can't really explain why FSM titles so rarely sell out (and usually eight YEARS after the original announcement). confused Had Twilight Zone: The Movie been released by Intrada or LaLaLand, it would have been lucky to last a month, but there isn't even a low-quantity warning regarding the superlative FSM release. It's certainly not due to the obscurity of some of the movies, as completely forgotten Charles Bronson flicks from the 70's always sell out from Intrada.

I still have to hold onto the GNP disc for the album recording of Capricorn One, ...


Yes, I won't depart with it as well as I love the Capricorn One rerecording.

Forgive me for any ignorance here, but doesn't disc two of the FSM release replicate the original album exactly, but with better sound quality? I dont have quite the forensic knowledge about this score as others on here so I'd love to know wink

Ta!

I would expect the FSM album presentation to be superior to the GNP album version of Outland, but that remains to be heard. Regarding Capricorn One (paired with Outland on the GNP CD), it is of course a rerecording of that score and IMO equally engaging as the original film version as released by Intrada.

I really don't understand, either, why FSM releases don't sell out as fast as other labels????

Maybe, Lukas can offer a clue?

I'd say it's the sense of urgency and rampant speculation that surrounds LLLand and Intrada whenever a potential release is mentioned. Intrada actually has a message-board specifically for requests and pre-release discussion, and LLLand seems to be fulfilling everybody's fantasy request.

This idea does not apply to FSM (at least for now). FSM releases tend not be "holy grails" and most of these scores are from the Golden Age, which I imagine isn't all that popular though I absolutely love them. There are also no clues (minus some recent exceptions) and no pre-announcements thus no anticipation and no subsequent craze. And not to mention that most of FSM releases are 3000 copies, so there is enough to go around.

Nope. Many FSM releases are indeed holy grails, and many of them are from the Silver Age rather than Golden (even in recent months, most FSM releases were Silver Age). The results of your research are not accurate.

..and no pre-announcements thus no anticipation and no subsequent craze.

No again. There were pre-off-the-record-announcements about Outland, the upcoming Poltergeist, and everybody knew Trek III was coming.

Whatever they may be, I don't think they are all that popular in terms of sales. And I don't care because that means I can buy them whenever I want.

No again. There were pre-off-the-record-announcements about Outland, the upcoming Poltergeist, and everybody knew Trek III was coming.

I would consider these exceptions, not the norm.

I dunno either but I am kinda happy because there is some old FSM stuff that I never got that is still available and when my cash isn't being squeezed out by new releases I would like to get some of it.

The Southern Cross LP release of Body Heat had the Ladd Company logo music on it, then the logo music appeared in the SCSE CD release of Body Heat.

See here in this link to Soundtrack Collector.

As to not get Mr. Lasher or any of his acquaintances upset, I am leaving the subject of the SCSE release alone.
