We will be cutting this off at 1500 units. We have 64 remaining in stock as of 2/7/12. Lovely music!

This is one of the most beautiful scores FSM has issued (although that can be said of many, many FSM CDs).

It's pure Raksin, with an extraordinary main theme and plenty of development. Great performance by the MGM Studio Orchestra, too.

By astonishing coincidence, I put this CD on tonight for the first time in (I'm guessing) two years. Great stuff! Sorry it sold so poorly. Time for 64 more people to enjoy this one.

As they say in those silly TV commercials, "I've got mine!".

I got my copy when Lukas released his low quantity list that contained this fine cd. I am so glad I grabbed it then. What great music.

Yes, Raksin's music was always first-rate, and yes, I bought all his FSM CD's when they were first announced. I can't figure out why this CD did not sell better. I suspect that it's the timing of the release. There may have been a glut of urgent "buy-them-before-they're-gone" releases at the same time and this one may have relegated to "another-day-perhaps" status, and then forgotten when the next wave of urgent "buy-them-before-they're-gone" releases appeared.

I've debated myself over and over again as to whether this is the "most important" non-boxset release FSM has ever done.

Either way, "Two Weeks in Another Town" is easily one of my favorites.

Easy. Raksin doesn't sell and the film is virtually unknown now.

Doesn't change the fact that this is a great CD.

Well, since this score was recommended to me only a few weeks ago I decided I'd better not let it go by ... so: ordered!

+ Raintree Country** and How to Marry a Millionaire*

* I love the short piece which starts the Charkes Gerhardt Classic Alfred Newman CD.

I know nothing of ** but I recall Mr. Kendall speaking highly of this one when it was released.

One of sixty four; ordered mine yesterday.

For those who are curious, Warner Archive now offers the film, though on DVD-R....

Raintree County is an excellent score from start to finish. A pity Johnny Green didn't write lots of scores.

Just wanted to give a quick thank you for the low quantity alert for "Two Weeks in Another Town" -- somehow I did not have this -- a situation rectified by an order -- should have the CD in my hands tomorrow. A beautiful score -- and I would have kicked myself many times over if this had slipped away. So, thank you.

I'm sorry to see that those of you who want this will have to scramble for it on the secondary market.

I just opened mine today (Raksin's 100th birthday) and am very pleased with it. That unmistakable Raksin style in beautiful stereo sound!

The source music that made it onto the disc is great. I really enjoy it when a film composer gives us their take on a popular song or style.

And some of you (not me wink ) will especially appreciate the picture on the inlay.

Va Va Voom is right for sure!!! I defintely appreciate.

It's a great CD, as I mentioned above, and one of my top-5 FSM discs.
