    This is one I definitely pass on as I've transferred my LP to CD.

    I don't get why this is only 1000 copies. This is a typical example of a score I would have bought if it had more copies, no matter what this Bruce guy keeps telling us about 1000 vs 1500 copies.

    Anyway, I read something on FSM about Tadlow doing a rerecording possibly, so I'd rather buy that instead. Or was this a rumour?

    I have the Rykodisc release and a lengthy suite on the SAYONARA compilation, so I have my TARAS BULBA music covered for a while. I'd like to see the film some day, though.
    I am extremely serious.

    There are a lot of releases of this material already. As far as I know there is nothing new.

    SUNSET BLVD. (SUNSET BOULEVARD / 2CD)
    Composed by: Franz Waxman


    Planned release date of LATE NOVEMBER

    Franz Waxman’s 1950 Academy Award-winning masterpiece finally comes to CD! This first-ever studio-authorized release incorporates all of the surviving elements in the Paramount Pictures music archive (approximately two-thirds of the complete score) along with the original “Prelude” and “Conversing Corpses,” a cue for a brilliantly scored deleted scene. Because of their major importance to the film’s story, the bonus section also includes all of the surviving source cues—even though some of these tracks have suffered from their years of storage. A final treat is the Jay Livingston–Ray Evans song “Paramount Don’t-Want-Me Blues” (not used in the finished film), newly recorded especially for this release by Los Angeles vocalist Whitney Claire Kaufman and pianist Nelson Kole.

    This double cd contains two lavish booklets with scenes on and off camera and many never before photos of Franz Wazman contributed by his son John Waxman. Extensive liner notes by Ryan Brennan and Curt Hardaway. Package design by Jim Titus.

    1. PRELUDE 8:18

    Is this the time I say I'm pleased with the Varese rerecording (which, however, is on my sales list because I don't like the score very much)?

    But great to see my friend Jim Titus getting more and more design gigs. He's really the best out there, IMO.
    I am extremely serious.

  1. If it is true about the second disc I'm surprised that they have not said anything about this at SAE. They must have known the "discussions" that that piece of information was going to start.

    I'm not too bothered about the length of the second disc. It's the first disc and the 2 (?) booklets that is the main thing for me. And if these booklets are as extravagant as previous SAE releases then I'll be happy.

    Got the release of Sunset Blvd. in the mail yesterday from SAE and what a treat. There is a book with it along with a '45' (one track on a CD, cool idea). I love the OST. The Varese release with McNeely does have superior sound but not playing.

    I think the RSNO orchestra did a superb job with their Sunset recording. It's a perfect companion album to the new Counterpoint release and I highly recommend that all film music fans have both albums in their collection.

  3. They said over at FSM about a month ago the reason for the second disc, was ... of course ... legal garbage.

    But what legal crap it was, too, as someone overseas pointed out the second disc inflated shipping costs drastically. I'm sure other foreign costumers are experiencing that with this as well. An unfortunate set back which probably cost them sales.

    If money were no object then I agree. I need to go over and get my sweet sixteen speaker from my sister's along with my push/pull mono amp. I might really be able to improve the sound. Stereo doesn't cut it on mono. Neither do $100 phones.

    Mono sound through a 16 speaker mono enclosure does make a difference. Tease me all you want.

    You don't understand mono nearly as much as you think. I grew up with it. The dynamic range and frequency response were wildly different than the 'digital age' recordings. When you match the sound recording to a system of the day it sounds much better. The new digital equipment takes the flaws and magnifies them. You wouldn't listen to a Telarc recording from the 80's (something you understand) through this speaker. It sounds like shit. It can't handle the frequency response or the dynamic range. But a mono recording that was 40-12,000 max sounds fantastic. Give me some credit that I understand a little about stereo equipment and especially older stuff. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to a white wall on this forum. I'm first in line to ask about computer stuff, and the new electronic equipment because some of you run rings around what I know but my father and I built this speaker along with the amplifier. How many speakers and amps have you made?

    I put up the review on MT without the clips which are available on my site. I couldn't believe that I had to add Franz Waxman as a composer. Then again I shouldn't be surprised as there is only a small handful on this site who even knows who it is.
