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.

That's a very classy move on Lukas' part! Nice to see such a great release capped off with something like that.

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.

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.

Lukas


Fair enough analogy, but I doubt there is any dough in our senior year midterm tests!

Personal pat on back: I did save my junior year American History midterm Term paper on the history of American comic books- I got 100% for it. Anyway, I was always exempt from mid term tests anyway, unless they were math or science.

Thanks Bruce !!! Even though I had the Intrada release I always missed the "Boat Chase" and now I have it. Any chance we'll ever get a release of the score for "The Creature Wasn't Nice" ? You made a very funny film there and you wrote a great song. I wish the title hadn't been changed for the DVD release.

You'll be happy to know that it's been out on CD for a couple of years now and is still available, I think. BSX did it. It was really before I'd started with soundtracks, and they really wanted to do it so we all put it together. It's the David Spear score, my songs, and some really fun bonus tracks. Best of all, we restored the original title.

Cool !!! I checked and BSX still has it in stock. It's been ordered.

Great Job Bruce!!!
Please, however do give TOM NULL some credit as well. He was pivotal in getting Varese started and worked very hard at it. I think he should have been given some fanfare as well.
Overall, a great job and I wish you well. Thanks for your work on this great Goldsmith masterpiece.

Kurt

15 ips is 38.1 cm/s. That means the recorded film soundtrack at 53 mins and 17 seconds will contain about 3996 and 1/4 feet of recorded magnetic medium. That's around 1 and 1/3 statute miles of tape, if I've correctly worked it out. That's quite a bit of fidelity . . . not to mention one helluva long bottle.

Bumped for the sheer hell of it.
