Dear LK,

I know I emailed you when this was released with kudos, but I am playing this album.....again....and wanted to publicly thank you for releasing this score.

This music is really special to me, and I hope others, and you guys just did a fantastic job all around. Hell, even the MOVIE is good on this one, imagine that!

I love this score, and has a cool song, also this CD produced by Lukas Kendall is wonderful with a lot of extra music and great sound, one of my favorites.
I'm still waiting for new things from Jarre, I was counting and for while there 56 complete scores produced in CD (some of them sold out) from the composer, around only 35% from the total films (around 170 movies/tv-movies/short movies)that Mr Jarre have composed.
Happy to know that his Giubileo is coming with Lawrence by Tadlow, and crossing the fingers for more things, as the beautiful scores to:

Last Tycoon - Paramount
Resurrection - Universal
Villa Rides - Paramount
The Fixer - MGM
Prancer
Le Palanquim Des Larmes
Firefox - Warners
Island At The Top Of The World - Disney
Last Flight Of Noah's Ark - Disney
Ash Wednesday
El Condor
Gambit
Shout At The Devil
and others

This is one of my favorite Jarre scores. His western scores are some of the best and I'd love to see releases of El Condor, Vila Rides and The Professionals.

Not only did L.K. and company do a great job with "Roy Bean" they also did a superb job with Grand Prix, a score that I didn't take to when it was released on LP, but the new FSM cd is fabulous, it's become one of my favorite Jarre scores.

Ditto on Grand Prix. I didn't keep the LP in the 60's, but I love the FSM CD, I think it's become my most played FSM disc. Amazing sound. I also love the Roy Bean release.

Low quantity alert: this will not be repressed past the first 1500 units. We have 41 left as of 8/25/11!

Wonderful Jarre score, one that the composer liked quite a lot too.

It just happened that I've put this CD in the player just before opening the forum. What a coincidence! A great score by all means, highly recommended to everyone.

I hope it can still count as a success for FSM with 1500 sold units.

Question: Do FSM and the others make a profit, regardless if there are 1000, 1200, 1500 or 2000 copies of a certain title pressed but the title sells out? How is the number calculated? Possible chance of sellout or break-even point (or both) or other reasons?

Great score and great CD, Thanks Lukas Kendall for this great Job
For who still not have it hurry to get one, unmissable Jarre's score

From Lukas :

The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean-originally 3,000 limited edition, but for contractual reasons (term expired) we have to cut it off at 1,500 copies—less than 30, $19.95.

This goes for silly money now.
Are any of our labels able to re-issue it any time soon?
It's probably received a major popularity boost, in the meantime, due to Tarantino using the Love Theme/Song in his last film.
I'd be up for a new edition.

Only got $150 the one extra copy I purchased (less Amazon fees). Just checked and see it's now one of those priced at $902.81. Maybe I should sell the one I have left. Used in mint condition, only $800.

Wish I had gotten this before it went OOP, because its use in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood made me want to hear the rest.

Tarantino has had a thing for this score for some time. When they were making Django Unchained, I got a call from WB that Tarantino might want a track, and asking what master sources I had. That didn't end up happening, but then the same call came for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it did get used.

With FSM only pressing 1500 (of a planned 3000) before the license expired, is this available for a simple re-license, or is there no such thing (as a simple re-license)?
Maybe another 500 (or 1000) pressing from Intrada or Kritzerland would drive down the crazy prices and appeal to fans of the Tarantino film (as well as western/Jarre fans).

A lovely score, & the track that Tarantino used is just magical. I bought it the day it was released, & the other Jarre score I was delighted to buy, Grand Prix, also seems to be a bit rare now.

...& there's a very nice looking Blu-ray release of Roy Bean from Warner Archive.

I don't think I've ever heard this soundtrack. Where was it used in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD?

I don't think I've ever heard this soundtrack. Where was it used in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD?

It is used in the final sequence of the film when Rick Dalton meets Sharon Tate and Jay Sebring. Like you I was unfamiliar with it but knew it had that familiar Jarre sound; actually thought it might have been from Red Sun!

That cue is also on the film's soundtrack. It's a lovely piece, and really made the film's achingly bittersweet conclusion work.

I wish a re-release of this could be engineered, instead of the 6th go-round of some JG score!!
The full 3000 were never pressed and it's now ridiculously expensive on the secondary market.
Plus, the main theme got a shot in the arm from that Tarantino/Manson film.
Any hopes?
