This is our last holiday season as an active label (see announcement). Given how well a recent David Raksin 5CD set promotion worked, we are doing it again but with more choices:
BUY $100 from the FSM back-catalog (any FSM products) and get for FREE your choice of the following, each one a $60 value:
David Raksin at M-G-M 5CD
TV Omnibus: 5CD set of rare TV music
Lassie Anthology: 5CD set of M-G-M Lassie movie soundtracks
Three Leonard Rosenman CDs: The Cobweb/Edge of the City, A Man Called Horse and Prophecy (no substitutions!)
Here’s how: Once you’ve placed your order for the $100 at Screen Archives (pre-tax, pre-shipping, etc.), put in the notes field a request (for example), “FREE CHOICE 2) TV OMNIBUS.” (SAE is renowned for their customer service, and will take care of you.)
Order $200 and get two of the free choices, $300 and get three, etc.
There is only one rule…NO SUBSTITUTIONS! These promotions are very difficult for SAE to manage. They have to implement them manually—emails asking for favors, changes, etc., drive them to drink…and get me in trouble for all the extra work I've caused them. Please do not get me in trouble!
One word about the TV Omnibus: I am very proud of this collection. It is a great “all-star” collection of composers—including Williams, Rosenman, Grusin, Fielding, Schifrin and more—doing rare TV work. I probably overdid it with the five discs and $59.95 price, so I would be thrilled if people used this promotion to pick it up. It has some really fascinating tracks by great composers!
This will be good through end of day E.S.T. on December 31, 2011. However, you may want to order sooner rather than later to make sure you snatch certain low-quantity titles…
Low Quantity Titles to Consider:
$4.95 sales: The Egyptian (159), King Kong (Barry version, 145).
Jerry Goldsmith titles: 100 Rifles (226), The Stripper/Nick Quarry (194), Room 222/Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies (255).
John Williams titles: A Guide for the Married Man (173), The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing (295).
Conquest of/Battle for the Planet of the Apes (T. Scott/Rosenman): 307
The View From Pompey’s Head/Blue Denim (Bernstein/Herrmann): 259
Lust for Life (Rózsa): 177
On the Beach/The Secret of Santa Vittoria (Gold): 278
I Spy Vol. 1 (Hagen): 294
