Save those nickels!

The next two releases will be ready in 2-3 weeks. Each one is a western—one American, one not—each one will be $19.95. 

Then—and the reason I am posting today—FSM Box 04 will be available probably in mid to late October. This is 15 discs, $179.95 (that's only $12 per disc), limited to 2,000 copies. The material is oriented around a single Golden Age composer. It should not be too hard to figure out...and will be long-awaited by fans of this composer!

That's all I'll say today. I just wanted people to plan on having the money available as I know that is more and more a concern. 

Thanks all, for your everlasting support.

Well, thanks to Lukas, I will be avoiding buying CD's until mid to late October it seems. :D

15 discs, what a set!

Wow, 15 discs, fantastic, looking forward to this, maybe it's the long awaited Rozsa set ?

Cool.

Yes, wow, 15 discs! My first thought was Max Steiner at Warner. You could easily fill 15 CD's.


Could it possibly be Stothart or Korngold? Lukas's wording "oriented around" could mean one composer dominates the box (Rozsa) but may be supplemented by others (Stothart, Bassman, Waxman). Maybe a box devoted to Classic MGM films.

Wow, 15 discs, fantastic, looking forward to this, maybe it's the long awaited Rozsa set ?

Is there 15 discs worth of unreleased Rozsa stuff in the Warners library??? Isn't it just a few short scores remaining?

I have it on inside authority that this will be a 15 disc set entitled "More and More Music Inspired by TITANIC" featuring Tiny Tim's version of "My Heart Will Go On" and various tracks by Jerry Murad and the Harmonicats. Hot damn!

....I so need a new job.

Could it possibly be Stothart or Korngold?

I can't see Lukas putting together a big, expensive 2,000 edition box set devoted to Stothart; his fan base isn't strong enough and Lukas would lose his shirt. For $180, it must be something Lukas is confident will sell. Korngold is much more popular, but do 15 discs worth of his scores survive? I was under the impression from the Rhino Korngold set that only partial recordings survive for some of the scores.

I'm stunned there is any question in anyone's mind as to what the Box Set is, after this long wait-----Anything of Miklos Rozsa STILL SURVIVING in the Turner/MGM Vaults, from the shortest to the longest, to the forgotten or famous, including.....

COMMAND DECISION
THE BRIBE
MADAME BOVARY
THE RED DANUBE
ADAM'S RIB
EAST SIDE, WEST SIDE
THE ASPHALT JUNGLE
CRISIS
THE MINIVER STORY (including the Stothart references)
QUO VADIS (the LP and random surviving material)
THE STORY OF THREE LOVES
YOUNG BESS (possibly expanded and certainly remastered)
ALL THE BROTHERS WERE VALIANT (remastered and including the Johnny Green)
CREST OF THE WAVE/SEAGULLS OVER SORRENTO
BEAU BRUMMELL (including the Addinsell)
SOMETHING OF VALUE
TIP ON A DEAD JOCKEY
BEN-HUR (?? Alternates and Out-Takes??)
THE VIPS (LP album master in stereo)


15-20 hours of Rozsa.....15 discs......$179.95.....Whatta deal!!!
