Low Stock Alert 5/16/11: Less than 150 left.

I remember going to Jo Ann Kane's library for this CD to check Goldsmith's sketches which was the only way to find the synch points for the zither overlay for some unused passages. Towards the end of one very complicated cue Goldsmith crossed out the last bar and scribbled, "Fix it, Arthur!"

(This was a rarity...his sketches are shockingly complete, neat and organized! Kinda gives you a Salieri moment looking at them...)

Great album. Anyone who doesn't have it yet should pounce before it's too late.

Agreeden, very cool score, very cool record. Glad you are finally moving
these amazing JG scores LK, sure as hell has taken long enough! Starting
to feel like the 'monster shouter' out here, telling these guys how awesome
your early records are, and why the hell didn't they sell out 3 times over?!??!

It is true...the quantities have been irregular...especially from the first few years when we had to change pressing plants several times, we had to reprint booklets that were accidentally tossed and all sorts of weird things happened.

All of the early Fox titles we did are technically out of print, we are simply selling off the stock, and after many years they are getting quite low. The Golden Age scores were softer sellers (From the Terrace) but some of the Silver Age titles are now in the 100-300 range and I don't expect them to last the year.

Gosh darn it, I JUST placed orders at SAE and Intrada yesterday and today...

I like "The Raid", but some of the Morituri samples aren't doing anything for me. I'll have to check out the rest of them tomorrow.

I flirted with this CD for years, listening to samples now and then and tossing it in and out of my shopping cart, before finally ordering it last week. I've only listened to it once so far, and not closely at that, but one cue from RAID ON ENTEBBE reached out and grabbed me and instantly made the purchase worthwhile...

"The Raid"

Gave all the other samples a listen, and I've warmed up to them. I'll place this in my next order... whenever that is. I'd like to wait and see what the Varese Club titles will be first.
