Who here bought any of these as singles, passing on the Grusin Bundle Offered by Varese?

Just curious.

I grabbed the bundle from Varese as soon as available.

I think they are $21.95 each now at Varese and here a SAE they are $27.95 each.

Who got what for what? And what are your honest opinions on them. Thanks.

I pretty much play the heck out of AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. Not so much on the others.

I've been waiting for ABSENCE OF MALICE since the day I saw it in the theater, lo these many years ago, so that's the one I got. (None of the other scores' sample cues set me afire, so I'm saving my $$ for that long-promised La-La Land release of Elmer's awesome DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS!)

I do like ABSENCE too. I remember making a rip of it from an old VHS years ago that I would play a lot. MURDER doesn't really do it for me and I'll put that on mainly to hear PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, which has some nice Grusin in it.

I'm all in for a Complete BOBBY DEERFIELD. One of my all-time favorite Grusin scores.

Nope, I bought the bundle like you did Zooba. I've been listening to all three this week, and I must say Grusin is a very underrated composer. I think my fave is -- like I thought it would be -- Murder By Death, but they're all fantastic. Listening to And Justice For All immediately put a smile on my face, and brought back memories of that film's funnier scenes. Absense of Malice is a real pleasure as well, although it's been years since I saw the film... smile

I got a digital promo package of this. MALICE and MURDER didn't do much for me, but I liked JUSTICE so much I decided to keep it.

Giving it a real listen through, The Pursuit of Happiness (coupled with Murder By Death) is very good too. Short, but effective....

To have Murder by Death for $10, I'd walk barefoot through Hell.

Just to say that MURDER BY DEATH arrived yesterday, in an unpadded corrugated cardboard mailer, intact and undamaged. Haven't played more than the first few tracks yet.

Did you play " Wang's Wing" or "Wing's Wang " yet?
