La-La Land has announced that this title will be officially out of print on March 9th... so I bit the bullet and bought a copy from SAE.

Samples sound great (I'm an 80s guy), and at $10 it's a steal!

Would love to pick up Money Train / Copernicus' Star as well, but those will have to wait.

Not going to actually receive this until mid-April, however, since it's in the same order with Slipstream. I have patience...

This was one of my holy grails for years. Saw the movie as a kid as just instantly fell in love with the two main themes (Tango's Theme and Cash's Theme). I'm so thankful that LLL was able to make this release happen!

Yup, nice score, and I'm so fortunate as to own a signed copy. That said, it could have done with some album re-arrangement/abbreviation for better listening. Would have made it even better!

Just curious...how does a title go OOP on a predetermined date like that? Is that when LLL's rights to the material expires and they are no longer allowed to sell it? What happens if there are unsold copies?

I didn't get Tango & Cash, but I did grab a copy of Goldsmith's Not Without My Daughter, which goes out of print on the 9th also. Goldsmith for 10 bucks? Easy decision to make!

Maybe it didn't sell as well as expected?

You got it exactly right. They purchased a license in 2006 to sell copies of Tango and Cash. That license expires March 9th 2011. After that time, they can no longer legally sell them.

I don't know what happens to unsold copies, but I'd imagine the Screen Archives, Movie Musics, and Intradas of the world snatch them up before the OOP date.

Pretty much this. Most contracts that the record labels sign to release scores last until either a) all copies are sold out, or b) a certain amount of time has passed, ie several years. If a title's contract expires and there's unsold copies, the record label that signed the contract is no longer legally able to sell them, and they are ultimately destroyed.

EDIT: Blegh, I missed Jason's post above. Meh! smile

I'm really surpised that it took more than 4 years to sell 3000 copies of this one.

Got my copy just a couple years ago. I'll have to send an email to a friend of mine, though. He'd been wanting to get it awhile back, but I don't know if he ever did or not, so now is the time.

Screen Archives is also selling this for $10. I got my copy from there.

I enjoyed revisiting parts of this score the other day.

Any chance that this could be reissued in the near future, with missing cues and overlays restored? Maybe another search in the WB vaults could turn up new elements?

Wonderful score !!!

Ray, I just wanted to say that your arrival at the board has been a breath of fresh air. I don't know if the "1992" in your username is your birthyear, in which case you're 15 years younger than me, and the love for 80s and 90s synth scores is all the more impressive.

You'll find that outside of myself, First Breath and a handful of other people, the interest in this kind of stuff is fairly limited here on the board. So we need more voices like yours.

As for TANGO & CASH, I'm fortunate to own the LLL release with Faltermeyer's own signature on the cover. I don't really obsess over autographs, but I'm glad to have that one.

Thanks! I'm so glad I got here!)
Yes, I was born in 1992 ... I am 28 years old.

I live in Ukraine. My friends do not share my passion for scores but respect my choice.

No problem. We have few, if any people, from the Ukraine too. So that's doubly interesting.

We periodically review electronic scores, do interviews with electronic composers etc. over on celluloidtunes.no. Worth having a look, if you're interested.

The whole synthwave genre we're experiencing now has re-ignited my electronica roots (I was a synth fan long before I was a film score fan).
