More money saved. Next!

I'll be very happy with my Varese recording. I don't need vinyl;besides tie-in selling should be illegal.

...but I ask myself why Stylotone needed two years to release this set..

Actually over 2 years, won't be out until April 26.


Yes indeed , it´s actually three years now since that MARNIE EP had been released! Almost unbelievable.

I'm with you guys ....... I pass as I did with TWISTED NERVE. I'm happy with the MARNIE music I now have. I'm not paying $75 or whatever for vinyl, downloads etc. that I don't want. I see the Stylotone TWISTED NERVE package is still available. This should have been a simple $20 CD from Intrada, LLL, Quartet etc. How did the Herrmann estate ever get mixed up with these jokers?

I don't know why people are upset. Personally I can't wait to hear Marnie played on the Stylophone! smile

Do Millennials make up a big part of vinyl consumers? If so, maybe the CD is an afterthought for the kids to give to their grumpy soundtrack-collecting uncle/father/grandfather.

The LP vinyl record was introduced in 1948 ...... and that's where it belongs!

Ordered! So Herrmann had the original master tapes all along, not universal. I'm guessing the same with PSYCHO and look forward to that full release. Maybe they have JASON as well.

Hopefully they have The Man Who Knew Too Much for folks like Bruce Kimmel and myself. smile

What I find hard to understand is that people think Stylotone is doing it this way because they don’t realize that some people just want the CD. Of course they know that. But this is the way that they’ve chosen to release it anyway, either because they believe this is the only way to monetize such a release, or because they’re avaricious, take your pick.

I agree with most of PandaMan's (TM) statement (although I'm not sure about the avaricious part, not being a mind reader and all).

I'm just happy, nay ecstatic, that this wonderful score is finally being released. Yes, it is a tiny bit costly, but I'd rather pay a premium to get a long neglected score, than wait for a future hypothetical release.

Nice to see you guys back. As I mentioned long ago Stylotone wanted the mastering of TWISTED NERVE and all their work to be done by Sean McGee, who did the Beatles re-mastering, at Abbey Road. Most of the labels said that is too pricey. The only ones who said okay were this vinyl company and it is Stylotone who keeps insisting a CD be a part of it. Now you may continue to spit on them for that. There is approaching 1000 hits on this thread since early today and much of that is because of the ire from the same group every time. But the ones who do not post (based on my concerts and input from every label out there) are the silent majority who do the ordering.


Thanks and please continue the vitriol.

People can voice their disappointment and criticism which is perfectly understandable. Noone is spitting on anyone, in reality. It's unfair to lump everyone who's disgruntled (to whatever degree) into some unthinking crazed group.
Aside from that, I appreciate you reminding us in detail about the given situation.

Wait...which labels turned down McGee mastering?

It still boggles me that in 2019 anyone would waste server and bandwidth space on WAV format. Lossless compression exists for a reason.

Well, I'll buy it from Amazon, when the price for whole set will look like price for CD (£15-17), as I did with Twisted Nerve. Maybe it will take 3 months, or even year, but I can wait. Oh, and yes - I also never touch the vinyl or digital copy.

ps Funiest thing, that at same time, when Stylotone releases their super-duper deluxe (mostly) vinyl set, even Waxwork (!!!) will release TMNT on LP AND CD, separately. And I think they do this because they understand, that some people not just collecting their super-duper items. They also wants to listen it...


Same here, JB, I did the same. Just wait for the prices to simmer down. The rest of the bumbling folks should follow suit !

But I must say this an incredibly royal release here!

I did the same, $33 off of Amazon UK, and very reasonable to me. If I can get a similar deal for MARNIE, why not? It's still a bit more than say what I'll pay for AN AMERICAN TAIL from Intrada, but comparable enough to justify the purchase. At least there is a CD available; I was wondering if that option would be included as it was for TWISTED NERVE, so I'm happy it is.

The announcement states that the film posters are machine folded, to reflect the way the originals were distributed. That's all very nice, but I suspect a lot of people (most?) would prefer a rolled, unfolded reproduction of a film poster, wouldn't they?
Perhaps the need to fit the poster inside the LP package was a more accurate (though less imaginative) reason for a multi-folded poster, rather than a scholarly quest to provide authentic folds.

Me too. I'd be happy with just a download, but it is what it is. I like the OST recording a lot more than the Varese version. This is my chance to enjoy it. And I've spent way more than £57.49 on CDs over the years that it turned out I didn't like at all.

Lord almighty, the assumptions here are beyond believable. So many experts who have no information at all, so let me clear some things up for you. The Herrmann estate didn't have these tapes, Universal had them. This was going to be an Intrada project - if you don't think every label was after this, think again, but Intrada had it and, I believe, Twisted Nerve. They've already confirmed this when the endless blather about Twisted Nerve was happening. Whatever happened with the Herrmann estate, Stylotone (are they one and the same, since I believe the Herrmann and Cordell estates are somehow tied together?) and Universal is anyone's guess, but whatever it was caused Intrada to step away.

Stylotone's business model sucks for many, while others are okay with it, which is par for the course.

Twisted Nerve didn't sound "great" - it could have but they did not have what's here in the US that many of us have had for several years - THAT sounds great. What they have on Marnie is anyone's guess because they are cagey with their descriptions. Lovingly restored - what does that even mean? (I think they removed the word "lovingly" or whatever descriptor they used when I first looked.) Nothing needs to be lovingly restored or restored at all. Again, many of us here have had what I believe is going to be used on this release - it does sound great, but I'll be curious to hear theirs because, as I've said, their Torn Curtain did NOT sound as good as what's here in the US. I have no idea where Psycho came from, maybe Lukas knows. But I doubt that the Herrmann estate had it sitting on a shelf somewhere. Again, they're very cagey about where any of this is coming from and why? If it's legit and properly licensed from Universal or wherever, why are they not mentioning that?

Marnie is a wonderful score and if it matches what I have here then it will be a fine release, but I cannot blame anyone who thinks being forced to buy vinyl and downloads and poster reproductions is a form of blackmail. If they have all these vinyl customers (the fact that you can still get Twisted Nerve two years later and at pretty reasonable prices) has to mean it was not anywhere near a sellout. For me, the vinyl nostalgia crap is just that - I'm happy for whoever thinks it's cool, but it's not for me and if this thread is any evidence, it's not for a lot of people.

In the end, the only decision is to buy or not buy. They will you loud and clear if it stiffs. Then they will reassess. But if it sells well and breaks even, they'll keep doing it this way.

Finally, for those who don't know - it is stereo, unlike the horrid boot, which is mono. That said, has anyone heard the Marnie EP - was it indeed stereo and did it indeed sound good?
