This is a comments thread about Blog Post: Tapes in a Bottle: Islands in the Stream by Bruce Kimmel

Great story, Bruce. I can understand Paramount not wanting this information published in the booklet as it would make them look bad - but at least it's online for all of us to read. Thank you especially for having the foresight to make a backup copy of the tapes. I knew you had mentioned a month ago that FSM went to you to get tapes for a soundtrack release as "the studio didn't have anything", and I was curious to know what title it was for since. And now we know.

Sure! It was a good move. If they included this in the liner notes, 5000 people could read this but they decided it's not a good idea and it might make them look bad so they agreed on publishing this story online for the whole world to see and read big grin

Anyway, thanks to all involved for another fantastic FSM release and one of the very best in the long history of FSM releases. smile

Groovy story, I hope with all your transferring insight back in the 70's that you got a copy of this soundtrack for at least 10% off. You deserve a discount for all your valuable work!!!

Thanks, Bruce!

It's a bit sad that you did not get to release it yourself through Kritzerland, though; I suppose the licensing fees were to high, or that Lukas was quicker on the draw. Off course, I'm gad FSM is releasing it; it's just that it would have been nice that the one who saved the score release it on his own label.

If Mr. Kimmel doesn't get a free copy, then I'll buy it for him. I mean REALLY!

An interesting glimpse into the history of releasing this score. Aside from that, I was given a shock when The First Nudie Musical was mentioned, a film I saw when I was a wee one, and all this time I had no idea that Mr. Kimmel directed it! Well blow me down! And THEN, upon reviewing his IMDB filmography, I come to find out that he appeared in one of my favorite "silly movies" of yesteryear, FIRST FAMILY with Bob Newhart and Harvey Korman!

I am not worthy.

I just came to the party a little late, but Lukas, as you'll find out, was kind enough to include the Kritzerland logo on the CD packaging.

"Look, I've said it before and I'll say it again: No, I did not make 15 ips tapes of the complete scores to SPARTACUS, DR. NO or MOONRAKER, to say anything of PSYCHO." Now would you please stop pestering me. Can't you see I'm just trying to run a label here, okay. Okay?!?"



Sorry, Bruce, I couldn't resist. Thanks for making it possible for yet another indispensable release. (And Lukas et al, thanks for releasing it.)

Most excellent work, sir.

I own seven hats, and I tip them all in your general direction.

It's great we have a law that says copyright for lifetime + 70 years or 95 years but these corporations often can't be bothered to spend the money to preserve the stuff they own for even a couple of decades.

Sad AND true.

If I asked you for your high school senior year history midterm test...could you find it? It is often not a matter of wanting to preserve things, it's a matter of bureaucracy and organization.
