I want to thank everyone who made our second annual “convention” (or meet and greet, or open-house, or whatever you want to call it) so enjoyable at the end of May. You can continue to read reports and see photos by visiting our (newly redesigned) message board.
Here’s what to expect from our CD label in the coming weeks.
First up: we are doing a summer CD sale—35 CDs over 35 days, five every week, for seven weeks. The first five are on sale now at SAE and are Jerry Goldsmith titles from our catalog: The Flim-Flam Man/A Girl Named Sooner, Room 222/Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies, The Illustrated Man, Hawkins on Murder/Winter Kill/Babe and Jericho/The Ghostbreaker. Normally $19.95, they are now $14.95. These will be discounted for one week starting today; next Monday, these will return to regular price, and five more titles will be discounted. This will go on through the end of July. (NONE of the discounted titles will be new releases, so don’t worry about buying something at full price of our new stuff only to find it reduced shortly. We’d never do that to you guys anyway.)
The next two FSM CDs will both be Silver Age titles from the 1960s—one score on each CD, neither one previously available in any form. One is a big-name composer doing a dramatic, symphonic score, the other a big-name (albeit mostly in other fields) composer doing a dramatic, pop/funk score. These will be released some time in June.
Then there will be a Silver Age CD in early July of vintage television music—big-name composer, little-known show.
Then there will be a very popular (and NOT limited) CD available at the end of July which we are aiming to have available at Comic Con. I daresay this will be MORE popular than Twilight Zone: The Movie, and that sold like gangbusters.
Speaking of Comic Con—Ed from SAE will be there and we’re thinking of setting up some time and place for FSM’ers to get together. We’re not sure if that’s best done at the con or at a hotel nearby—does anyone have any ideas? Post them in the comments thread here.
