Damn, I thought that jumble was a re-release of WAR OF THE WORLDS.

Should I buy it as soon as it goes up for sale or wait a few weeks to see if the CD has to be replaced?

Any part of the AVA collection you can get will be well worth your time.

Damn... for a minute I thought we were going to get the OST.

So, what, no one bought the AVA collection? Am I understanding that right? Did it go out of print?

The AVA Collection came out in 2014 and was kept in print for more than six years. I’m sure it sold well enough, or Intrada wouldn’t be reissuing part of it now…

Cool... more and more and more reissues of something that has been available for years, years, years, years and years and only went OOP a couple months ago. But I guess it is good to save sometimes.

I have the AVA Collection

Absolutely love it,
Nice to see these two get a reissue.

These are two of my favorite Elmer Bernstein albums. I have them on vinyl too. If I could keep only two albums from the AVA collection, it would be these two. (Fortunately, I get to keep all six.) These two are must haves and it's good to see them re-released for anyone who does not have them.

I get that - just surprised that some in this thread and elsewhere never got it.

Unlike their TWILIGHT ZONE set, which apparently sold so miserably that even the first edition copies had to be sold at dumping prices. Which is really, really a shame. There was a release that featured many top composers writing excellent and original work at or near the beginning of their career, Basil Poledouris, Christopher Young, Craig Safan, etc., and most of those miniature scores would work wonderful as stand alone concert pieces. Yet we will probably never see a Volume II or a re-issue of Volume one.

I support these great AVA albums remaining in print, of course, but I'm assuming based on this announcement that the Alan J. Pakula estate is still keeping the film tracks for "To Kill a Mockingbird" under lock and key (at least, I believe that's the issue holding up a release of the film tracks)?

Does anybody know if the film tracks for "Walk on the Wild Side" still exist? I seem to recall reading that there was an issue there, but I don't recall what exactly.

I literally just gave that Twilight Zone set another listen-through this past week and agree completely - some really great music and such a shame that it didn't sell well and effectively ruled out a future release.

Much as I treasure the AVA box, I've always wished that the disc of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD/THEMES had been programmed as THEMES/TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. After the tender, sensitive, transcendent conclusion of MOCKINGBIRD, the jazzy THEMES are delightful but completely shatter the mood, for me at least. This would never have been a problem if Intrada had simply reversed the order of the two albums. Seeing the image above, I fear that once again they'll lead off with MOCKINGBIRD and then go WILD. Come October 5th however, I may be pleasantly surprised, so for a few days I'll keep my fingers crossed. Or, has Intrada already announced the Track List?

Intrada never releases the tracklist before the title goes up for sale, which in this case will happen this Monday evening, October 4th.

Not every release can be Shamus or Public Eye. And since TKAMB is a famous and beloved score I stand by the decision to keep it in print.

Nah you'll be disappointed.

"Nah you'll be disappointed."

Thanks, Roger. Better I should find out sooner rather than later. At least I've now dropped my druthers into your Suggestion Box, and maybe you'll consider it the NEXT time you bring MOCKINGBIRD back into circulation...

Incidentally, FWIW, I for one applaud your keeping it available. For Pete's sake, it's a Classic, and classics should Always be available. Nobody I know ever walks into a bookstore and complains that Harper Lee's novel is still on the shelf. I only wish classic scores would be resuscitated more often in our eccentric world of movie music marketing. All too often even the best scores are offered only once and then never again. Nobody is happier than I am when a long buried treasure is finally put on CD, but to me a great score never wears out its welcome.
