There are many excellent scores in the MGM archives!
I think there is hope! ..

None, since Rhino Handmade gave up and the unusual FSM release of BELLE OF NY years ago.

Maybe through the Water Tower label if there was an indication of sufficient interest (profit).

I'm guessing that the window for this kind of thing closed sometime ago.

A real shame if there aren’t anymore coming.. when they first came out I grabbed Kismet, Silk Stockings, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and the great Kiss Me Kate also in beautiful stereo even though it was recorded in 1953. Wonderfully produced, great booklets. At the time I couldn’t understand why there was no release of High Society...and here it is 2021 and still no High Society, (besides the old LP program). Oh well........

I know! Silk stocking's source music is marvelous

Unfortunately true! It reminds me of those PBS concerts during pledge month. Years ago it was the Big Band retrospective. Then after a time they figured “ok, those folks are dead and gone, so let's do rock and roll. Now they’re fading fast, let's jump on the 60's bandwagon”, etc. etc.

I have all (I think) of the Rhino releases as well as the FSM "Belle of New York" and would buy everything else that was released in a heartbeat - these CDs were definitive, beautifully remastered and so collectible. Just my two cents.

Yeah, pretty soon it will be Richard Simmons/Jane Fonda workout retrospectives!

The one I was hoping for is INVITATION TO THE DANCE, complete in good sound. I have the LP, but it only contains truncated versions of Ibert's "Circus" and Previn's "Ring Around the Rosy." Conrad Salinger's wonderful adaptation of "Scheherazade" for the "Sinbad the Sailor" sequence is missing. The DVD of course has the complete music, but the sound quality is lacking.

Because Frank Sinatra starred in "High Society" the soundtrack LP was released by Capitol Records where Sinatra had an exclusive contract in the 1950s. (Before forming Reprise Records,). I imagine that got in the way of Rhino doing a complete soundtrack CD for "High Society."

It would be a good questions for the Sinatra Family Forum. I haven't been there for a while, but Nancy is very responsive to questions such as this.

The one musical I wanted which we never got is GUYS AND DOLLS: a Samuel Goldwyn production distributed by MGM, but with that obstructive Sinatra participation. Well, I can be content with the trade-off that almost every non-musical score I really wanted did emerge and reached my hands.
