Perhaps the volume two of THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR will be released around Halloween? That would be a great time to release the more horrific scores such as THE JAR and AN UNLOCKED WINDOW.

I'm sorry to hear that the proposed Tribute rerecording of these scores has apparently been jettisoned. I'd be happy to purchase both the Varese and the Tribute releases, if both do come out.

I finally had some time this evening to listen to all the sound clips.
Great stuff as usual from Benny. This is a superb collection which
I'll be ordering shortly. I hope this is a sign for other Universal
tv series score releases. COLUMBO, NIGHT GALLERY and KOLCHAK
may very well be in the pipeline.

And what about that cover artwork! This one should win
the most colorful cd cover design of the year award.
Eyecandy!

New-to-cd Herrmann is always a cause for celebration. Ordered! Bravo, Varese!

One of the themes which has a sound sample seems to have been reused by Herrmann in HATFUL OF RAIN. Or is it the other way around?

The samples sound amazing. Heartfelt, smaller ensemble, woodwinds to the fore... something is pulling at my wallet.

"A Hatful of Rain" was released nearly 6 years before any of the episodes on the Varese disc aired.

I too would like to see the COMPANIONS IN NIGHTMARE score rescued from obscurity, especially given that the film itself is missing in action.

If this is not receiving sufficient cheers for some folks, remember there is a ton of Herrmann stuff out there. Much of his CBS tv work has been released. Plus, all the re-recordings etc.
Plus, there are the "Stereo only" purists.

This is a great release, to be sure, but even this die-hard Bennie fan can wait

As if I needed to, I just listened to the samples on this release and they really sound quite fine.

Spank me tail and call it shiny- I got e-mail confirmaion of shipment.

You know- their shipping department isn't such a bad old crow, at that.

Great news, Steve. This is the first I've heard of the title being prepared for shipment. SAE hasn't assigned me a tracking number yet, so perhaps they haven't received their copies yet.

Mine has arrived. Okay, fun stuff - on track 2, one of the themes is a virtual dry run for the fire truck music from Fahrenheit.

Not fun stuff: Bob, honey, if you're reading this (and we know you are) how can you do a CD in the year 2011 without any track information or even an album title when one loads into iTunes? I shouldn't have thought that was possible. Why should some nice fan have to do that work? In other words, I load into iTunes and it comes up as tracks only (numbered, no titles) - no composer, no album title, no nothing. All I know is when I receive a disc from Intrada or FSM or one of our very own, that information is normally there.

The music's nice, though.

FYI, normally I am the one that ends up submitting the info when I get my Varese club CDs. I have the same problem. But as I am pretty anal retentive about how these things are entered (it's the librarian/cataloger in me), I don't mind so much.

And one more thing, when I got my MULHOLLAND FALLS CD, whoever entered the CD into Gracenote listed it at "Jazz" and not "Soundtrack."

It wouldn't have been us who listed it as jazz - my point is the track titles were somehow embedded on the disc as they are for most labels. That's what I don't understand - or is iTunes just something wholly different?

Some really fun music and lots of echoes of other Herrmann scores - North By Northwest, Fahrenheit, Torn Curtain, Cape Fear.

There are two different technologies at work here. Track titles embedded on a disc are a function of CD-Text, which not all that many CDs seem to have. My car can read CD-Text and display track titles on the screen.

But iTunes does not read CD-Text. Instead, it relies on track titles being in the Gracenote database, which it searches for online when you insert a disc. The Gracenote database is entirely user-generated, so until somebody has input the track titles and uploaded them to Gracenote (which I suppose a record producer could do before the discs go out, but I've found they rarely do), nothing will appear in iTunes.

I can't wait to get this! I ordered it for will-call pickup. I wonder why I haven't received a notice I can come pick it up…

Just show up there. smile

I guess I just don't understand the technology all that well, because I get a lot of CDs prior to release and if I load them into iTunes the track titles and CD title are ALWAYS there. So, it's weird to me, I guess. In other words, when I put in our Mulholland Falls the tracks were there - and they have different titles than the previous CD.
