Why don't you did it as Lost in Space?! I hate big box-sets (for price reason, so B:TAS is still the best model for me), but if I had choice - 9-10 CD-set with whole S:TAS music for $100-120 or just one volume with half music and probably no chances for the rest scores... I would do impossible things, but I would buy it, in any case!

That would have been a complete disaster and a HUGE loss for the company. If few people bought a 4-disc set, even fewer would have purchased a 10-disc one!

The plan:

The Adventures of Batman & Robin (3 or 4 cd set)

The New Batman Adventures (2 cd set)

Batman/Mr Freeze Subzero

Batman Beyond (3 or 4 disc set)

Justice League Unlimited (3 or 4 disc set)

Teen Titans (3 or 4 disc set)

That's all that is being discussed at the moment. Another volume of Superman TAS was in the works, but sales were so low on the first volume we scraped plans for the time being.

MV


Great plan - thank you for sharing MV.

Only thing missing, the 1960's "Batman" scores.

Sorry, but I don't think that people buy LIS better than S:TAS.

My "Soundtrack senses" tell me that this GLORIOUS plan, is an "ANIMATED" plan.

Batman '66 I'm sure is still on MV's Holiest of Holy list.

Wait, I just realised that Return of the Joker wasn't on MV's list. I hope that one is being discussed too.

Everyone, if you want all of these amazing releases to see the light of day, buy Justice League and BTAS Vol 4! smile

Rhino released an incomplete soundtrack to the film back when it came out, so I can understand a decision not to pursue such a project, but there are quite a few cues I wouldn't mind having after all these years from that film!
Off the top of my head, what was missing from the original release:
- the second half of the opening fight sequence
- the guitar riffs as Batman is speeding away from the tidal wave
- the night club source cues
- the first half of the "Jokerz crash the party" sequence
- a portion of the final battle sequence in which Carter's Batman Beyond theme makes a brief appearance

There are several other unreleased cues besides those, but those are the ones that are most noticeably absent to me.

Yeah, there doesn't appear to be anything on the Batman Beyond front at all. Wonder if there are rights issues with Rhino (they also released a score compilation from the show itself). Or just perceived lack of interest...

Read MV's post more carefully. wink

I'm surprised a Batman Beyond release is on the table, though I'm ecstatic to hear it is. It's very different from the orchestral approach of B:TAS, but the music is just as methodically composed. I listen to the Rhino BB release quite often.

THIS is why I love La La Land so much! Apart from the fact that they continue to release so many darn scores that are close to my heart, but they have no issue whatsoever giving us a heads-up about potential future planned releases, even just to give us hope smile

This is looking like a year full of gems (a torrent of Trek on its way too!) and even though my wallet is going to hurt, my ears at least will be happy smile

Actually it wouldn't be a bad idea for a kickstarter. But the monies needed would probably be mind-blowing...

That STAS 4-CD set is indeed a stunner, but it's a tough market out there for the small soundtrack niche, especially tough when it comes to 90's animated TV series that got lost in the shuffle between BTAS and JUSTICE LEAUGUE. There are lots of soundtrack releases every month for us movie/TV music fans, it's a lot to expect everyone to all pick up the same albums. Still, I never hesitate to recommend the STAS set to anyone who is even a casual fan of the music of BTAS.

I'm sure it has been discussed before, but I don't understand why it is difficult to sell out a run of 3,000 (or even 5,000) CDs. I understand that digital and streaming are having a significant impact to the amount of actual CDs that are sold each year, but how can there not be 3,000 customers in the entire world to snatch up this great music? Is it due to limited advertising or something else? I mean, are there really not 1,500 people out of 7 billion potential customers in the world who wouldn't commit to buying a 10cd box set of the complete score to the Love Boat??

It's a REALLY small market. The vast majority of people who like film music enough to pay attention and/or listen to it would never think to purchase it to own, save for a handful of their favorites. The first Batman: TAS set was something of an oddity, I think, in that it was HIGHLY desired by a whole generation of us who grew up on that show AND it came in that magic period in the early 2000's when shit would sell out fast, prompting a frenzy of more shit selling out fast, and so on until the market became saturated and hot sellers started being released a second time, which took away the gotta have it now mentality. Hell, I think I still have a sealed copy after I gave a few away to some of the guys who played on it (who hadn't a clue it had been released by the way!). I, for one, intend to keep ordering Walker et al scores as long as my pocketbook allows, but I suspect I'm in the minority to prefer this over yet another Goldsmith expansion of an expansion of an original album that was the bastard son of an aborted fetus of an idea that he once had while having a really satisfying bowel movement.

STAS not selling well, but the Batman stuff selling well doesn't make sense to me. I was a fan of both and don't understand how anyone else couldn't be.

In fact, I think there is more to like with the style and writing in STAS.
