...is there ONE Herrmann score that, if Stylotone releases it, you will HAVE to buy?
I have to admit, that if they DO find good tapes for Jason... I'll have to spring for that.

No.

It's not a matter of that one score, it's a matter of paying for useless extras and then the extra shipping charges on top of that (and that must be a import/punishment fee nightmare for overseas buyers).

There's nothing they're going to issue that at some point when their license expires, some other label won't pick up and do a CD of.

If I didn't have the awesome Tribute recording I would say a complete Mysterious Island. Aside from that, I'm not sure if there are any other unreleased original Herrmann recordings I would do that for. Maybe Jason, like you.

I'm just glad they aren't working with the Goldsmith estate. smile

I agree a million percent with you, Justino! AND, at their current release schedule, all of Herrmann's scores will be released in 140 YEARS! big grin

I just hope it doesnt take another 3+ years to release another title. I'm sure everyone would buy PSYCHO. The one title I'd buy is Cordell's GOD TOLD ME TO (which Kritzerland could have done, damn it).

Yes, it could have been ours easily, since I was working with Larry Cohen, but he'd JUST given it to the estate. I have to imagine after Khartoum, which was a very lackluster release in iffy sound, they may be thinking long and hard about Cordell.

I would not buy a single one of these releases. CD only for me please. These are ridiculously expensive to buy for all of the additional inclusions that are just not worth getting to me.

It's Stylotone.
Stylophone was the electronic instrument made popular by convicted paedophile, Rolf Harris.
While I've never considered buying anything from Stylotone, I did buy a Stylophone many years ago.

considering how they handle their releases, the fact they are not just doing one composer, makes me hope other labels just start hopping and getting the rights to Herrmann and Cordell scores before Stylofone does. Snatch those rights up. Do something that doesn't require us to purchase the kitchen sink and doesn't have release coming out half a century after the target audience is dead.

The Stylotone sets are quite beautiful, but I view them more as deco pieces anyway. I don't own any, but I would most likely be inclined to buy FAHRENHEIT 451, or MARNIE (great score), possibly JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS... VERTIGO.

I really cannot understand why people are so negative about these STYLOTONE releases
They are legitimate releases and are UK based. Both Khartoum and Twisted Nerve had very good production values and yes I bought them both has I will MARNIE when it is released in April. We collectors have for many years have been thankful for the labels in U.S.A, for their releases but it costs us in the UK big money to purchase them by time you add postage and custom charges and overseas transaction costs - you can be talking as much as £40 plus for just a single disc release. I have paid this gladly to get the things I want. But when we on this side of the pond have a good release it seems people on the other side resent them. This is a real shame because these records and CD are GREAT!

I haven't owned any yet, but I am quite interested.

I would probably not hesitate for a Journey to the Center of the Earh set with a 24-bit download.

It's even rather surprising that a 24-bit download is offered with a LP.

Finally, Stylotone is more modern than most of the film music labels working today.

I agree Johnny! Intrada should have done the Herrmann series, we would have had 4 or 5 CD's at $22 each by this time.

So it goes ......

More modern? Giving us 1948 LP records?

There's a 24-bit download, more modern than the CDs produced by other labels.

Seriously?

It's because, again, most US labels don't require you to buy a limited appeal LP with it for an additional cost. The digital download is no consolation prize, because as soon as you get the CD you can make one yourself at whatever bitrate you like.

So, in a nutshell, the cost of the CD PLUS an LP, in addition to dollar to pound conversion plus overseas postage adds up to too much money for some people. It's the paying for the extra copy in a format they find utterly useless that's the sticking point.

You may not agree with it, but you must certainly understand why there's backlash.

I am curious why you are cheerleading this when you don't actually own any of the product.

A CD, and a download, for $20 - $22 is fine with me.
