Less than 225 left.

I figured this one would go in 24 hours....

After seeing this news, I just bought a copy through SAE... not even enough time for a transfer to Paypal!

If my order was accepted, is that usually a promising sign SAE will fulfill my order on a near-sellout?

Keeping my fingers crossed!

I bought it despite having the older release from 1999. Bruce, I'm basing my decision on your answer a few days ago concerning my indecision on getting the reissue. smile

He was at his very best as real life serial killer John Christie in 10 Rilligton Place, a superby creepy and understated performance in an exceptionally well made film.

Let us not forget SEANCE ON A WET AFTERNOON, another fine Attenborough performance in a similar vein. I think he did "creeps" the best!

Great movie, and great performance. And he's really wonderful in The Sand Pebbles, too.

Fill in them holes! Our opening page makes it easier than ever - we removed all the sold out titles from the list (they're on the actual "home" page now, for which there's a link right under the twelve covers.

Bruce:

Yep I had Sugar and Sadismo in my "cart" but am holding off until I see what Intrada is releasing tonight. The War Wagon is a definite buy assuming that guess is correct...but I haven't grabbed their last release either... Sucks having to switch banks and open new accounts....grumble...wait for checks, wait for debit cards, wait for pin numbers....wonder if I could put that to the music of Meredith Willson......smile

I've ordered it.

And I'll take the opportunity to ask yet again for one of our esteemed labels to give us Addison's magnificent CENTENNIAL.

Yes, Basil, hear, hear! The splendid Chandos suite by Rumon Gamba just wasn't enough!

I thought I had commented on this thread already, but a quick skim-through makes it evident that I haven't!

I'm buying this based on the main theme march alone. John Addison's inspiration in writing this score clearly shows, himself having served in the Army Corps, in the same battle depicted in the film.

Too bad I don't have my credit card yet; thus I can't pick it up right now... assuming it'll sell out before my card arrives later this week, maybe I'll pick up a sealed copy off of eBay. The prices on sold out K-Land titles don't appear to be doing too bad there, going by a completed listings search.

Better than nothing but its not even a suite really. It's just the main title with a bit of a prelude. But it does sound very good. I wonder if any labels have looked into the availability/condition of the original tracks.

A first class release - well recommended - unless of course you already have the original UA LP

Basil, if you need me to hold a copy for you just drop a line and I'm happy to.

Bruce, whenever you can, check your Facebook messages, please... I have a little personal issue I wanted to bring up, but I don't feel it needs to to go public here, lest I start another argument.

Edit: Whoops, I see you already responded there. Firefox froze up on me for a few minutes, so I wanted to take it slow in getting this program back to its normal functionality.

Another great soundtrack. I just ordered this even though I have the original Ryko release. The liner notes and remastered sound make it well worth it.


Well, I compared the samples with my own rips from the Ryko, and though there was a clear difference, it was pretty minimal. I'm not so sure it's worth it to 'upgrade' in this case.

When the original CD of this came out, I wrote a glowing review of it, which was published in the print edition of FSM. Someone wrote a response in which they said I was crazy because he'd bought it on my recommendation and decided he didn't like it. I've always wanted to say this publicly to that gentleman: "Thppppt!!!"

One of the best WW II film scores...evuh. And a helluva movie, too.

That is, of course, up to the individual - I hear quite a bit of difference, but some won't and that's fine. We're down to less than 170 now. smile

I'm happy with my old Ryko CD, so you can hold the copy I didn't order for Basil, Mr Kimmel! smile

Such a good score, I think I'm gonna listen to it next!

It is quite a movie, and one that I think has aged rather well. It has been constantly available in all the formats of home video for years: vhs, dvd, widescreen dvd, collector's editions, blu-ray, etc., which I think indicates a pretty good afterlife!
