Think this will be released on cd in our lifetime?
Isn't it strange that it hasn't appeared on CD thus far? Even when a lot of those old RCA Victor soundtrack albums were being issued in Spain, this one never made it. It's fun stuff and I always felt that the stereo recording of this was one of the best sounds committed to LP.
As an aside, on Vikki Carr's web-site she paid tribute to Elmer Bernstein when he died; I thought it was a nice touch.
Isn't the existence of older Columbia Pictures masters very iffy?
Realistically, I'd be more than happy with just a new release of the original album, which Intrada is likely capable of doing given their working with RCA/Sony Music. The same goes for the Schifrin score.
