This is a comments thread about FSM CD: The Swimmer

Very few people seem to be aware that the Grindhouse blu-ray/dvd combo release contains an isolated score. It's not even mentioned as one of the extras on the case.

A head's up for anyone who was wanting the soundtrack but not wanting to pay a collector's price for it-

Grindhouse Releasing's earlier Bd/DVD combo release has gone out of print, but they have a new release- limited to 2000 units - which contains the earlier combo + a standalone CD of the soundtrack.

It went on sale three days ago and it looks like they've already sold close to half the run.

Thanks for the heads up! This is a great deal if you want both the film and soundtrack.

But the FSM cd contains more music than this new cd.

Thanks, Henry, I did not notice that.

Still hoping one of the labels will reissue this sometime in the future!

But, the new cd is remastered!

Is the Grindhouse CD perhaps the original LP, which FSM expanded for its release?

According to track-list, it's original 29 min. album, not FSM complete (35 min.) one.

Incidentally, since this thread has been recently revived, I should mention what I believe I've mentioned on another thread, that I participated in a podcast about THE SWIMMER which I think some of you may find enlightening, in part because I refer to (and sometimes correct) the BluRay documentary.

My apologies, guys.
I didn't realize the FSM at 35 minutes was an expansion. I knew it was a short program and this one looked similarly short, but I didn't vet it beyond that.

Still a nice bonus if you lack the more complete FSM, not to mention the film itself.
But sorry to get anyone's hopes up.

Ah, don't worry about it, Mose. It's just a Thor point.

I'll just buy the Blu Ray set with the album program. I'm sure someone will sell me the missing 6 minutes of music for 1/6 of the going cost of the out-of-print expansion. wink

Pulled the trigger on this. Where is this track-list of the Grindhouse CD everyone is talking about?
