The 500th release is not a premiere-release?
Thats truly dissapointing!

Shure, its a nice set, but nothing really new and not really exciting, because most soundtrack-fans still knew and/or own those scores.

As one member notes before: this seems to be the year of the re-releases.
Thats ok.

But to release for an "Anniversary-Release" a re-release and call it "so exciting" - thats pretty weak.

the only negative thing about this set is the July 30th ship date. Damn you, god damn you all to hell!

Human sacrifice! LLL and Varese collaborating together! Mass hysteria!!

The possibilities are limitless.


I saw that com coming.
Predicted THE RIGHT STUFF.
Next time?

I can understand folks wanting a premiere title, but this reassures me LLL still values "vintage" (50+ year old) music.

If LLL released a 20 disc set and only ONE was a Goldsmith, Yavar would be elated!

Great release! And just under the Disney wire presumably.

No one has said it? Let me check. Wow. No one has said it.

YOU MANIACS!

Nice job.

I don't care about this release. Bait and switch with the From the Earth to the Moon, tricky tricky LLL!

But what I do find interesting is does this mean future collaborations with Varese are going to happen?


In the LLL Speculation thread, MV says today that they are not working on From the Earth to the Moon and has no idea where this rumor even started.

5 discs in 4 cases?

Yeah I wonder what got paired in a single case together. Looks like a gorgeous package in any case!


Looks like CONQUEST and BATTLE, which were originally on the same disc.


so you'll have the big box with 4 CDs and 4 titles labeled for the 5 films? quite odd...

Holy moly guacamole...

I already own all the APES scores... all of them... and I am not very much into re-buying the same scores over again for a new mastering.... but I'm afraid I cannot not buy this set. I just cannot let it come and go, I MUST have it. Sheesh... really, there is not anything on these discs I don't have, but still.... also, it might just have better sound, who knows.

I should have known it couldn't be a premiere release of quality like FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON. Lalaland runs true to form. Looking on the bright side, it's money saved.

No one ever promised you FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON. MV just stated that he has no idea where this rumor started. Stop acting as if LLL purposefully avoided releasing a soundtrack set that you personally wanted.

What a terribly negative presence you often are, whenever you don't get what you want and feel entitled to.

Why even bother posting what you did? I'm sure LLL put a TON of work into making this happen (and no doubt it cost a pretty penny to license the two Goldsmith scores from Varese, especially since they've never done such a thing before)... only to you come in here and complain. I think they're probably even working on From the Earth to the Moon still, to boot, so it must really hurt them to see this kind of comment, especially since you indicate with "true to form" that LLL is *always* disappointing to you. Sheesh.

And these are late 60s/early 70s scores too, so you'd think you might hold off with the disparaging comments. Personally, I'm really glad that Goldsmith's two scores have been given the fresh Mattesino treatment, as I think there was room for sound improvement. The Varese complete release of the original score in particular is over a quarter century old, at this point! And even when it was brand new, it didn't sound as good as the Intrada expansion (which only added The Hunt) from a few years earlier. This is actually a much-needed and much-deserved reissue, and I hope it sells like gangbusters for LLL.

And this is also super exciting because it means that Varese is now willing to license titles they control to other labels. So LLL could maybe collaborate with Varese to give us a premiere release of the film recordings of Rozsa's Eye of the Needle, Elfman's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, or Horner's Brainstorm! Hell, maybe Kritzerland could give us a complete The Other or David Raksin's magnum opus, Forever Amber (also a Varese-in-perpetuity title)! But if one is too busy being negative because there's no "new" music here in this set, I guess those thoughts might not even occur to them...

You post too much. What do you do for a living ? Surely you don't get paid for posting on this board. Try reading the first 10 amendments to the Bill of Rights. Besides, who forced you to read my comment ? Good bye, Groucho.

Oops ! The Constitution that is.

I somehow never realized Rosenman did a second Apes score. How does it compare to his first?

Of course I'll get this.

His music for "Battle" is a lot of fun, it's more tonal and melodic than his music for "Beneath" and his main title for "Battle" is one of my favorite cues from the series, a 3+ minute rousing orchestral tour de force!

I wonder if there's an alternate Dr. Zaius theme for the alternate Edward G. Robinson.

Yep, bloody tiresome. This is an impressive release though, I also have the previous releases but the only scores I ever return to in the series are the Goldsmith ones as I think the others are pretty much unlistenable. But again, an exciting release.

In my opinion... it is sooooooo much better, at least as a listening experience. Tom Servo is spot on in his assessment.

This is an impressive release though, I also have the previous releases but the only scores I ever return to in the series are the Goldsmith ones as I think the others are pretty much unlistenable. But again, an exciting release.

If you haven't tried Rosenman's Battle for the Planet of the Apes, give the sound clips a shot. It's like night and day compared with his first Apes score, which I personally *do* find pretty unlistenable. It was a big surprise to me when I picked up the FSM disc for completist purposes. Very, very listenable and even enjoyable.

P.S. to cody -- we've been over this before. Yes, we do have freedom of speech in the United States (though not necessarily at film music forums, which have their own rules, I'd point out!) From the Constitution, haha. The first ten Amendments to that *are* the Bill of Rights BTW, but of course you only need the very first Amendment out of those, in terms of covering free speech.
But simply being *able* to say something doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do, and I have just as much freedom of speech to declare that you're being extremely rude and negative with your comments here. Freedom of speech to say something stupid/rude/inconsiderate does not include freedom from anyone else exercising *their* freedom of speech to make their own judgements/observations about what you have said. It's funny how many free speech advocates I've seen like yourself who think that freedom only applies to them, but not to others who disagree with them. smile

Yes, I'm not sure why it was necessary to include both in one case. Either because it was mandatory, or just because it was possible? You can see two titles in tiny print on the spine of CONQUEST case in the advert.
