I can't recommend enough the Elmer Bernstein Box Set (actually ALL of the FSM box sets are worth buying). From the quality of the compositions to the quality of Bernstein's conducting and the orchestra's playing to the quality of the FSM production/transfer/packaging: You won't be disappointed! I hope whatever stock of 001 is remaining will find good and loving homes.

On a more curious note: we now know of the FSM master plan of 7 box sets, with 007 being a James Bond Box. May we know please what 006 was going to be? smile

There was never a 006, that was one reason why I couldn't imagine getting to 007!

Another great, interesting post, Lukas.

I'd just like to say thanks for all the hard work you put into The Swimmer. I bought it recently and played it for the first time at the weekend - really beautiful music, and I'm glad to have it in my collection now. So thanks again, for all the hardships.

Also I had my first play of Checkmate / Rhythm in Motion - possibly now one of my favourite CDs ever. I don't think I've ever had so much continuous fun listening to a CD! Every single track on there was brilliant and sounded SO great. I'm glad I got that one before it disappeared!

Lukas, I really enjoy reading your LQR's, and I am busy going through my collection to confirm what I have (a lot, by the way), and what I still need to purchase.
The reports are very helpful, and entertaining!

From one lefty to another, I am honored! (Elmer was left-handed—I am not—but that is not what I mean.)

And you are still wondering why Michael Wayne didn't help you for the GREEN BERETS artwork ?

Zig Zag and Super Cops is a glorious return to the burnt-orange formica countertops, harvest gold linoleum floors, avocado-green refrigerators, and faux-wood paneled dens of the early 1970s...thanks a heap for this one, Lukas.

Thanks for your work on The Swimmer release, there isn't much Hamlisch out there. My Favorite Marvin Hamlisch score is Seems Like Old Times, and I doubt it will ever get a CD release, but I could be wrong. It is cool you persisted with the release of The Swimmer, I do remember ordering it the day it was posted for release and was thrilled.

Great article, very interesting to read about all those cd's.

My favourite of this year must be the Elmer Bernstein box set, which took me 4 years to think about if I actually wanted to spend so much on only one box. I'm glad that I did!

Don't ever let me see you in "Bed Stuy"!

With only 250pc left I doubt it's woth it but is there any chance of any samples from the Elmer Bernstein's set being posted in mp3?

I have a fairly new PC and don't really want to install Real Audio since I have no need for it anywhere else. Most of the pages here have mp3s available via the track times but not this set.

Try Media Player Classic:
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/

It's a small standalone player -- no instrallation, just DL and run -- and works great for RA files

You could always just use Sean Bean's character from Goldeneye instead! wink

Indeed! Very glad to hear that Chips will at least stay in print a little longer, as I wouldn't have discovered the film without hearing the sound clips and then going to see what was on YouTube so I could hear the music in context. (Somebody put up a VHS dub of the entire thing, and I liked it so much I immediately bought the DVD. Haven't done that for the score yet. Glad to know I still can.)
