It's an avalanche!

We've fallen into a tub of Butterfield today, film music fans!

Wow! I ordered this immediately. Thanks!

Now I'm wondering what will be in Vol. 2.

Looks like FSM is moving to a low print run.

Well it keeps costs low since this release isn't exactly going to fly off the shelves.

Dang. I'm surprised that FSM is even starting to go below 1500 copies now. I hope this lasts long enough for me to get it some day when I have spare cash...

I wonder how many volumes of Kaper at M-G-M there will be (or Schifrin for that matter). It seems like Lukas is starting to take the Rozsa Treasury approach to remaining MGM material from other composers as well, systematically releasing it all but this time in smaller sets as the composers don't have the following of Rozsa. Here's hoping for a Previn at M-G-M set containing all the remaining surviving music he wrote for the studio.

15 years ago, I dared only DREAM that we'd one day get the complete "Mutiny on the Bounty."

The biggest joy I've experienced through FSM (and there have been MANY joys) is the way this label has embraced the works of Bronislau Kaper!

Always vastly underrepresented on LP, we have seen his discography grow and grow. Each title is distinctive and wonderful.

And now we get "Vol. 1!!!!!!!" of Kaper at MGM. I can barely catch my breath!

Thank you, FSM!

A great set and a nice adddition to the FSM Kaper discography!

It seems that the Perry Como song from SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME could not be licensed and was replaced by a demo vocal in the Main Title.

I am also wondering a bit why THE ANGEL WORE RED from 1960 is not included in this set from 1954-1962. Will it come in a Vol. 2 or are there no tapes available anymore?

You'd better hurry, less than 1,200 remaining!

This set is not meant to be an exhaustive collection of the 1954-1962 scores. We grabbed as many as we could and kinda picked the low-hanging fruit as far as masters. We'll do more later!

I'm counting on it, I've got all the dedicated Kaper's from FSM and every one makes me want more!

Thanks and good luck.

Why is the U in BUtterfield capitalized?

Why is the U in BUtterfield capitalized?

It's from a time when phone numbers had letters. I believe you had to tell the operator the number and they'd plug you in. And Liz's character is a call girl...cool


"Phone numbers were usually not strictly numeric until the mid-1960s. From the 1920s until then, most urban areas had "exchanges" of two letters, followed by numbers. In the UK, however, exchanges in the major cities with Director installations were represented by three letters followed by four numbers; the letters usually represented the name of the exchange area (e.g. MAYfair, WATerloo), or something memorable about the locality (e.g. POPesgrove — an area where Alexander Pope once lived). This was considered easier to remember, although in London in the later part of this period it required the memorization of 7 characters (roughly the same number of characters as is usual for local calling in 2008). A word would represent the first two digits to be dialed, for example "TWinbrook" for "89" ; "BYwater" for "29". UK numbers had no letters at all except for those in the Director areas, where the first three of the seven digits were assigned letters, and written "ABBey 1234" or "WHItehall 1212", for example. A lack of pronounceable words, and the fact that most telephones world-wide have no letters on anyway, have led to the abandonment of letter usage in directory numbers except for publicity purposes."

Why is the U in BUtterfield capitalized?


Once upon a time, telephone numbers had prefixes of two letters rather than area codes. These letters were the first two letters of a name for each exchange network.

In Greenville SC, circa 1960, my home exchange was CEdar. You'd dial CE and then the number. My best friend's home exchange was CHurchill...and I'd dial CH and then his number.

In BUtterfield 8, BUtterfield is an exchange name -- why just an 8, though, I don't recall. My number, as I recall, was CE 29854...the exchange prefix and five numbers.

The FSM office has an old Hollywood number which begins 46 (HO)!
