Maybe this situation will repeated again?

Hard to imagine a more definitive release of this score.

Don't hold your breath. These are going on sale because they've still been hanging around all these many years later. Is there any music missing or are you just hoping for a remaster? I can't see Varese bothering on a "Deluxe Edition" for this one since 1) it's already pretty deluxe and 2) it was one of their worst sellers.

I gotta say it's funny that Cleopatra can be had for $8 but Spartacus, even on sale, will set you back $88. I'm not the biggest North fan ever but personally I prefer Cleopatra to Spartacus. Definitely worth $8 for a two-disc set in case anyone is teetering on the edge of buying it.

Other scores very worth getting which are on sale right now:
Alias Season 2 (Giacchino for only $3.99? Grab it! The highlights are amazing.)
Super 8 (ditto except $4.99)
The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (McNeely Herrmann recording...they aren't all perfect aside from perhaps North by Northwest, but it's still good and only $2.49!!!)
Flyboys (supposed to be one of Trevor Rabin's better scores though I haven't heard it; $2.49 is tempting!)
Hancock (great John Powell score for only $4.99)
Family Plot (one of my favorite Williams scores, and I paid more than list price for it at SAE a couple years ago...)
The Red Pony (amazing Goldsmith Americana...shocked it went on such a deep discount so quickly after having been released)

Of course all the Goldsmith titles on sale are worth getting...

The definitive release will have 2 CDs of interpretations of the Love Theme and a DVD of bloopers from the movie.

Totally agree. I cannot recommend THE RED PONY enough. I'd go so far to say it's a must-have.

For a minute I thought Varese was changing ownership again xd.

At $13.99, I think FAMILY PLOT's gonna move like lightning now.

Picked it up along with ADRIAN MESSENGER and ...GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE.

If anyone is interested in Karate Kid, I have one for sale. I will go cheaper. Only listened to it once and was not my style.

Are you certain about that, Yavar? This was not a club title printed in limited numbers. They had to press a minimum of 5,000 of these.

I'd have thought they'd have sold out had they restricted it to 2,500 or 3,000, but I could be seriously mistaken.

It is a marvelous recording, and I will forever be grateful to them for doing it.

As I've said before, the "CLEOPATRA" is not the complete score; there are three or four cues missing. There may have been a few overlays missing, such as preserved on the final track on the LP album. Unlike "SPARTACUS," no alternates were included. Perhaps a three CD set is in the works, which may include the LP program. The score is a modern masterpiece worth preserving.

Then again, you may be right and Varese may not bother with a re-release.

There's also a third possibility. Perhaps LLL or Intrada will do the honors, as LLL did with "THE ROBE" and Intrada did with "THE GREAT ESCAPE." Both "THE ROBE" and "THE GREAT ESCAPE" were originally released by Varese in deluxe editions.

Re: Cleopatra. It appears to have disappeared the the Varese website. The most likely scenario is that Varese placed it at such a low price to move the last remaining copies in stock. That said I do not see any need to duplicate the LP program as the 'complete' score will include everything that's on their release. It would be something if intrada or LLL did a reissue that included the complete score plus any alternates(of which I'm sure there were plenty-if they still exist).

Amazon.com and SAE have copies available.

If a new CLEOPATRA set would be in the works wouldn't SAE also sell it reduced? Or not necessarily?

Not necessarily - if Intrada, LLL, Kritzerland, Quartet or even Varese themselves works on new version, it's probably that SAE also will not get this info until release announcement.

If this theory is true, then Varese isn’t lowering the price for Predator 2.

According to the website of the CD mastering company, D2, they are working on a “release” of that said title.

http://d2mastering.com/

(just click on the word “clients” and you’ll see the title listed as “Soundtracks/Soundtrack Reissues 2014” )

Meanwhile, Varese still has that title listed as $15.98.
http://www.varesesarabande.com/servlet/Categories?cart_id=42180229

Then, again, Verese may not be involved in this release and that another label may be working on it. But, I can’t picture Varese giving-up the rights to a Fox movie title.
