"slint" should be interested in this batch; both 2-CD sets are pre-1980. smile

Recently, Dragon's Domain has been tackling decades abandoned by Varese Sarabande. When is the last time Varese issued anything from the 1950s?

In 2019 they re-issued VERTIGO (1958) on vinyl. Does that count? wink

Not counting re-issues such as that or their SPARTACUS re-do, my mind is thinking that their Frank Skinner LP-to-CD on MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION might have been their most recent release on '50s music.
When was the last Club CD from the '50s - Emmett Dolan's THREE FACES OF EVE?

I thought the 1990s title was by Dennis McCarthy. Sounds like Star Trek Generations, again.


Nope, this one isn't Mr. McCarthy, but we do have another score of his coming up in the none to distant future.

This one is something we wanted to put out for a very long time.

There are some things we are looking at from that period for 2021....

And yes, there will be a few more release of Albert Glasser.

I added that it sounded like McCarthy "again" to acknowledge I've thought this before and been wrong. I thought a sound sample clue in September sounded like McCarthy. Turned out to be DON DAVIS COLLECTION: VOLUME 1. I have no faith in my guessing abilities unless I'm completely certain.

Thanks Ford for the forthcoming Albert Glasser music and yes, please try to issue some 1950s scores.

I'm anxious to see what the 2 1950's sci-fi scores are!

I tried to like this album, I really did. But alas the sound quality put me off. I'm aware that's the best there is, but I have a thing for older scores. They either need to be pristinely preserved or rerecorded with stellar sound. That's MY problem, not Glasser's or Dragon Domain's! smile

That being said, the music was very interesting in and of itself. And I'm glad for all the fans. This deserves lots of kudos just for higlighting and releasing music by a composer who is woefully underrepresented on disc.

Thor, at least you gave it a chance. I assume you purchased the release. If ordered from Buysoundtrax, you get the music immediately as a download which might especially appeal to international customers.
Some of Glasser's scores were recorded in stereo, and there is some variability in his music. But if you didn't like this for the reasons stated, you won't like the majority of his soundtrack releases. I'm surprised you got this one since the sound samples are representative.

I'll take a film score that's 60, 70 and 80 years old etc., in ANY condition. Many thanks to all the labels. We are very lucky that these scores have survived at all. Thanks Ford for issuing Golden Age CD's. smile

Mine arrived. Nice package.
I like the "Huk!" disc very much. Seems to me the sound is very acceptable – archival, but consistent throughout, clean and warm.
Can't say the same about "Tokyo File" though. Harder to enjoy that one with its more pronounced sound limitations.

I see Kronos Records has just announced another new Glasser CD: "Viking Women and the Sea Serpent" (which is probably best-known for having received the Mystery Science Theater treatment).

Basil, you shouldn't piss off Clint...

That's the classiest artwork ever associated with that movie.
