Regards the Universal series, at around 1hr 18m, MV says the Universal Heritage line is being rebranded as Universal Classics going forward, so Munsters, Go Home! could be the first release under that.
EDIT: Listening to MV on vinyl at 1hr 24 - YES!!! I agree with him so much - aside from the artwork, it's an awful format
Its like ditching the automobile and going back to the horse and buggy. Smells about the same too.
I personally haven't gone back to vinyl, but for my friends that have it is very much about the ritual experience involved in playing the music, less so the resultant the sound quality.
Fot a long time, there was a hug back catalog of material available cheaply in thrift stores and at garage sales. Not so much anymore.
That ritual was fun, but I would much rather have some good monitors and my entire collection at my fingertips via iTunes. I can fully understand the appeal to collector's though, just like I can understand the disdain of labels to serve that market.
After spending the last few months loading up on music, I'm greatly looking forward to the release of QM v3 as it's going to be among the last batch of CDs I buy for quite a while.
Powell and JHN are usually universally solid no matter the genre they are writing for. I second the person who said bring on Pluto Nash too!
Pluto Nash is one of my favorite Powell themes.
I hated the movie Forces of Nature when it came out (mostly the distractingly mannered direction, and the inexplicable ending -- why did he go through all that just to stay with his fiance?), but I don't remember the score and I'm always happy to have more Powell. And there's always something reassuring when relatively obscure, decades-old scores like this manage to finally get a release.
