Some Ghostbusters fan websites mentioned it on Facebook and this is straight from Randy Edelman's website:

(Sorry for the large screenshot!)

Wait, wait, wait.

Hopefully this will be on CD. And the CD will come in a jewel case.

I would also appreciate it. Knowing how the world is progressing, it will probably be only available as a downloadable track taken from vinyl.

And if that's the worst thing that happens in 2021, we will all be incredibly lucky.

I haven't seen the movie in years and don't remember anything about the score...I guess I'll have to watch it again.

It's not as good as Bernstein's score for the original (no big surprise -- Bernstein was an all-time master), but I think I enjoyed it the most of any Edelman score, and I don't remember it overusing synths like a lot of his scores tend to.

I will welcome a CD of it. Or begrudgingly buy it in vinyl. I'll skip a download. (Similarly, having been without movie theaters for 4 1/2 months, I still have no desire to start streaming movies. Am old.)

Well Sony is listening. I hope this means their might be a chance for RGB in the future too!

I didn't think it was Sony causing an issue there. Last I heard, it was a combo of missing contracts and master tapes.

No over-modulated audiocassette = no sale.

One has to respect a purist.

When I was in New York for December of 1990, The Russia House came out on audiocassette before it came out on CD, so I bought the tape and gave it a pre-movie listen. It sounded truly unusual for Goldsmith, not even the atypical jazz score I'd heard about -- it turned out the tape was mislabeled, not a film score at all (and certainly not The Russia House)

This was never coming from any official sources.

I'm pretty sure La-La Land said contracts were a mess for a lot of Dic projects when RGB came up in discussion and I read an interview somewhere with Shuki Levy where he said he didn't have the tapes and has no idea who does.

Every time I see RGB I think you're talking about the Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary RBG, whose score I never thought of as a hot commodity.

Now I realize you all probably mean Real Ghostbusters.

Please continue.

Speaking of THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS, I hope the Time Life collection of the series is re-issued someday!

I believe the majority of scores released on the Masterworks imprint are CDR’s/on demand at least those released in the U.S. I prefer a pressed cd. Let’s hope that’s what we get!

The Sony release of Bernstein's Ghostbusters was not a CDR.

True! However it was a Sony Classical release.

I'm all about theatrical movies and blu-ray presentations, Scott, but have to say, I do love the Criterion Channel! :-)
