The comments you make, in your eyes are suppose to be jokes and they are not!

Hi Eric, I am not 100% sure but it is possible that the label guys enjoy jabbing at each other here and there. So, I think, not everything that Bruce posts about other labels should be taken SO seriously.

Sometimes it works - sometimes not, like when Doug Fake spoiled that a new CASINO ROYALE was in the works. A release he surely wanted to do !!

Schweik, that maybe so, but it seems Bruce is the only one that has issues with the way the other labels release their titles and he is very vocal on the timing of their releases. Only to turn around and do the same thing back! How many postings from the staff at Intrada do you read here? Yes, MMM and MV post here and make comments, but they do not post comments like the ones I posted above. It just gets old.

Did Doug spoil the CASINO ROYALE release here or on the Intrada website and someone drug it over here? I missed that one. Maybe because I was not interested in that title.

What are they chances that Varese will sell these individually later on as single remastered editions? There are several scores in the set I would love to have but some don't interest me and I can't spend that amount for a few discs.

I wonder whether "speculators" could make more money back offering up individual discs from this set on eBay rather than the set as a whole. Make $30 for Jane Eyre from someone who couldn't afford $200 for the set, another $40 from Ghost and Mrs Muir . . . I wonder if the sum of the parts could come out greater than the whole in such a way.

Well, they haven't with the Goldsmith Fox box (with the exception of "The Vanishing," which was excerpted on the box but later released in full) or with "Spartacus," despite knowing predictions on this board that those were imminent.

On the other hand, they've released the first two "Karate Kid" scores separately from that box set.

I don't think anybody here really knows, and I'm not even sure Varese knows. I wouldn't count on it happening, though I imagine that many of these will eventually see the light of day again, even if not on Varese.

Billyearle, I agree with you. I hope to see the Herrmann centenary continue into 2012 with a complete OBSESSION and a Bernard Herrmann at Universal set. I don't have any inside info, just a sincere hope that the magic will continue.

Well, I figured since the box seems to be almost gone (if the shopping cart trick works), its an appropriate statement wink

$200 bucks is a lot of money, but for a 14 disc set it certainly seems like a fair deal to me! I have little interest in this release myself, but I do think it is a fair deal.

Oh, he does what he always does - hit and run. He doesn't have it in him to behave like an adult and apologize when he's accused someone of doing something they haven't done in any way, shape, or form - how hard is it?

Sorry, no hit and run here. We happen to be in different time zones so when you were posting, I was asleep. I get tired of reading how you do not like that everyone buys the 80's scores over your releases. Have you not tried to get more 80's and 90's? Look you got THELMA AND LOUISE? A majority of the posters here are younger than you and have never heard of half of the titles you release. I for one am not going to take a chance and spend money on a score I have never heard over a score I have! I have too many CDs sitting in my collection that I was talked into that will never be played again. I am not one for double dipping, but when your label re-released some of the FSM scores shortly after their release, that was a slap in the face to all of those who purchased the FSM release.

The comments you make, in your eyes are suppose to be jokes and they are not! Here are a few of your quote that are quite frequent. There are more but I do not have the time to dig deeper. Let the others run their labels the way they want and if you disagree, then disagree! These are the ones I get tired of reading!

One of Intrada won't be limited? I think all of Intrada isn't limited - oh, wait - it is and it isn't, depending on the wind. Well, whatever, it's not limited at the announcement phase.

I was surprised to see that there are less than 175 of these left. Should I do the new-fangled thing and say going oop in two weeks?

Oh, if I wanted to play the game I could just say it was going oop in three weeks and we'd sell what we have left. But, that's not for me.

It's getting more than a little pathetic when someone has to call 250 copies of something "low quantity."


Now, lets get back to celebrating this BH release.


You accused me of "talking bad" about THIS label in THIS thread and, as always, you haven't been able to back it up, have you? No. Nor have you apologized for the false accusation, have you? No. Therefore you are a person with an agenda. Instead of doing what you should, you go searching for other quotes to what? Try to cause more trouble you can't cause? And after doing so you immediately say "back to this release?" Sorry, not the way it works. Let's examine each quote, shall we?

Quote 1: Nothing incendiary there - just fun, and factual - and again, Doug and Roger are friends of mine and know it's good-natured - again, nothing there to bolster whatever feeble argument you're making. Quote 2: Ditto. Apparently you wouldn't know fun if it hit you in the face. Quote 3: Ditto. Quote 4: I agree with my statement - 250 copies is not low-quantity. 250 copies can stick around for a year in some cases. In some cases calling 250 copies low-quantity does what it's intended to do - creates panic for certain composers/titles. That is all.

As to us releasing the FSM box titles, funny you only single us out, isn't it? We weren't the only ones who did it, and I have to tell you we did it with the blessing of Mr. Lukas Kendall and, more importantly, with the blessing of the licensor, MGM. And then there were all those people who were thrilled we did it and snapped up each of the titles, not that we did the majority of them. So, why are you castigating only us and for something that's what, three years old now?

Again, you say the majority of the people here have never heard of the films whose scores we release? How about the titles of similar nature that FSM releases, or Intrada releases, or Quartet releases, or Varese releases, or LLL releases, because, bucko, they all do just what we do. The difference is you ONLY come after us. Funny that! So, what I get tired of is people buying ONLY the 80s and 90s releases and not buying the others from ALL other labels who do them. I'm not the only one who feels this way. And if you've never heard of Summer and Smoke, Drango, Kings Go Forth, Fear Strikes Out, which are all prime titles by one of the greatest composers in film history, then I think the fault, dear Brutus, lies with you, not us.

You have failed. NOW let's get back to discussing this great release.

Folks, we're coming down to maybe 100 units left, so please don't hesitate much longer if you really want to include ths magnificent set in your library. I would hate to see someone miss out on this release only to find it much more expensive on the secondary market.

I just feel bad for those who don't have the funds, I honestly wrestled with it big time, I need some new tires on my car soon! and the timing isn't the greatest. I still pre-ordered a copy yesterday morning. Just wish all those that really wanted it can get it somehow.

I agree. I, too, really wish it was more affordable for those people in some form of dire straits. Nonetheless, the celebratory nature of the beast certainly beckons the price we've been presented with, and hopefully, those who can afford it, really appreciate the hard work and money that went into it, and more importantly Benny's fantastic music. I hope most of these haven't fallen to speculators who have only an interest in profit. It would be a shame that others, who really wanted the music, missed out on the original asking price because it was taking a while to gather the funds.

I am confused on why people are saying that they wish would be more affordable.
I guess you would rather pay the $360.00 for these scores to be released individually?

No, but they would rather have the option of paying $20 each for some few of the scores.

The only way I could affford this would be if another FSMer bought and held a copy for me while I saved up $25 a week for two months, and that's too much of an imposition.

When releasing $100+ boxed sets, it'd be nice of the soundtrack labels if they offered some sort of layaway plan.
