    It might April 9 or the 16. Might be April 12. I don't know. I just know nothing is ready to ship and this time it has nothing to do with the manufacturer(s) just bad timing on approvals.

  4. Also, FSM member MMM (Monstrous Movie Music) had this sad tale to tell:

    I tried to get access to some of the Salter recordings long ago, as a legal representative of Salter's writing and publishing estate, and it was such a nightmare that I gave up. Just trying to hear some of the music was an exercise in futility. UCLA was great at accepting or going after composers' collections -- not so much about caring for them properly or allowing access to them.

    The only reason Salter's collection was even (partially) inventoried was because I had repeatedly asked them to do it. It wasn't until I was able to promise them I'd record some of his music for our Monstrous Movie Music label that they did some work on the collection.

    I also represented the estate of Marlin Skiles, and saw acetates that had been destroyed by being crammed into boxes without the proper protection between records, to where literally everything in there was unplayable due to breakage and other things. Of course, the composers/publishers had no recourse because the agreements they signed basically gave UCLA permission to do what they wanted to do with the material. I have untold reels of tapes that should probably have a home in some of their collections, but I've been hesitant to hand them over, because UCLA wouldn't even give me the right to access some of the material at a future date, even though I once again represent the composer/publisher of the material.

    There were also reels and reels of film music tapes from various composers that were unlabled and if you were blindly trying to find something specific, you essentially would have had to hire UCLA's vendors to transfer tape after tape until you (perhaps) found what you were looking for. That would have cost tens of thousands of dollars if not more. When subsequent composers or their families asked me for advice on where to put their archival material, I steered them away from UCLA, sorry to say.

    Geezes....how on earth is that even possible with an allegedly esteemed institution like the UCLA?
    I am extremely serious.
  6. Low quantity alert, copy and pasted from an FSM user:

    Just noticed over on Howlin' Wolf's website http://www.howlinwolfrecords.com/ that their release of Final JudgementThe Terror Within II by Terry Plumeri has a low stock warning of less than 50 left. Such a great release by an under-rated composer. If you haven't already picked this one up, I recommend you do so!

  7. New this month from Quartet Records:


    A DOG'S PURPOSE
    Music Composed by Rachel Portman
    Limited edition of 1,500 units


    Quartet Records, Backlot Music, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present the premiere CD edition of the beautiful score composed by Academy Award winner Rachel Portman (Emma, The Cider House Rules, Chocolat, Never Let Me Go, Oliver Twist) for A DOG’S PURPOSE (2017), directed by Lasse Hallström, starring Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, John Ortiz and Dennis Quaid. The film is a lovely fable about a dog who looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and families.

    Rachel Portman has crafted another wonderful score—encompassing tenderness, sadness and nostalgia—that includes a catchy and memorable main theme. Produced by the composer, mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman Mastering, the package includes a 12-page, full-color booklet. This CD is a limited edition of 1500 units


    THE BOOK OF HENRY
    Music Composed by Michael Giacchino
    Limited edition of 1,500 units


    Quartet Records, Backlot Music and Focus Features present the premiere CD edition of the haunting, moving score composed by Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino (Up, Ratatouille, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Rough One: A Star Wars Story, Star Trek Beyond) for Colin Trevorrow’s drama THE BOOK OF HENRY (2017). The film is about a single mother (Naomi Watts) who sets out to rescue a young girl from the hands of her abusive stepfather, helped with instructions from her genius son's carefully crafted notebook.

    Michael Giacchino wrote an intense, emotionally powerful, highly inspired score, including a main theme which is among his best. The music was produced by the composer, orchestrated by Tim Simonec and recorded at Abbey Road in London with orchestral sessions under the baton of Ludwig Wicki.. Mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman Mastering, the album includes the original song “Your Hand I Will Never Let It Go,” performed by Stevie Nicks. This CD is a limited edition of 1500 units.


    70 BINLANDENS
    Music Composed by Fernando Velázquez
    Limited edition of 500 units


    THE FIRST 50 UNITS PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM OUR ONLINE STORE WILL BE AUTOGRAPHED BY THE COMPOSER.

    Quartet Records presents a new, cool soundtrack composed by Fernando Velázquez (A Monster Calls, The Orphanage, Ozzy, Que baje Dios y lo vea, Thi Mai) in his third collaboration with director Koldo Serra after The Backwoods and Gernika.

    For this comedy-action-drama about a woman who, while trying to raise money to ransom her kidnapped daughter, is trapped in a bank assault, Velázquez provides a non-stop, surprising score. The music is infected by groove and funky sounds, colored by electrifying reminiscences of Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones and Jerry Fielding, and influenced by Ennio Morricone and Michael Small. It is an explosive cocktail that represents a new step in the career of this talented young maestro.

    The CD was recorded and mixed by Marc Blanes. The 8-page, full-color booklet includes a statement by director Koldo Serra about the music and the recording. This CD is a limited edition of 500 units.



    These three titles are now available for order and shipping. For more info, order and listen audio samples, please visit www.quartetrecords.com

  9. There will be one more Film Score Monthly release after all these years.


    Hello everybody!

    We will release the trailer next Tuesday, April 30, to SKY FIGHTER and send a private VIMEO LINK & password to watch the completed film to all the contributors to the 2018 Indiegogo.

    Hard to believe this will be ONE YEAR (almost to the day) when the first Indiegogo launched. But the good news—the film is done!

    If you are waiting for the Ron Jones soundtrack CD (which now won't exist) as the final perk from the 2018 Indiegogo, we'll be sending a Blu-ray/soundtrack CD (of the Bobby Villarreal score) to fulfill this park—only it will be later this year, after our festival run concludes.

    To drive everybody nuts, it will be packaged as the 251st Film Score Monthly release, in a 2CD case (not a Blu-ray case).

    And...don't kill me, we'll be launching a second, much smaller Indiegogo next Tuesday (4/30/19) to cobble together enough money to make a Blu-ray/soundtrack CD and pay down my credit card—because I spent way more money than we raised!

    I mean...WAY more money...it's not good times in the Kendall household.

    But I can't wait to show off the film! We just have to keep it off the Internet publicly or else the film festivals won't take it.

    Thanks!

    Lukas

  11. Various updates from La La Land Records for the month of April over at the FSM forum.

    On whether we'll get the score to "Top Gun" this year:
    no...maybe never


    On whether there are any more downloads coming from the label:
    nope


    Various comments:
    Nothing new on

    JFK
    Bumblebee

    No flyer for May. Only thing definitely coming is The Sentinel on May 7

    No Cobra Kai Season 2 on cd. No one bought it. sad

    Would love to do Animaniacs some day but things at WB have gotten too pricey so that well may be dry.

    Young Indy would be amazing, but I can only assume that's Intrada territory

    MV



    The Quinn Martin Collection: Volume 1 isn't ending with one volume:
    You guys will love Vol 2 and 3



    Universal update:
    We are planning some incredible releases from universal TV catalog hopefully starting later this year as part of the Heritage Collection



    "E.T." is about to fly over the moon and away:
    We are down to 180 cd units. Get the cd before ET goes home!

    https://lalalandrecords.com/e-t-the-ext … -2-cd-set/

    (I'm surprised, as he said in the last few months it's been a disappointing seller; I suspect the full announce amount was not pressed and it's being discontinued like other title such as "Planet of the Apes" was [Elfman])



    EDIT:
    More comments from MV today:
    Couple of updates

    1. Bumblebee has been delayed indefinitely. As soon as we have an update we will let you know.

    2. I forgot that we will go back to our regular release pattern in May so the next release is May 14 (The Sentinel)

    After that, it's May 28 and we hope to have The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season One and Fletch lives out then

    We are currently working on our "500th release" (in our minds). That should be out late June/July. It should be quite something

    That is all

  16. hi all

    Later this year, we will be re-releasing Ron Goodwins score for the animated Danish feature "Valhalla".
    This was Goodwin's final score, and it's really really good!

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of the film, and I would love your (the film music experts) opinion on something.

    We will, of course, release all of the score for the film BUT we are in posession of Goodwin's synth demo along with early material from the film two original composers (Danes Bent Hesselman and Jussi Adler-Olsen).

    Would you prefer a release like this to be "just" the score, or would you like an extra disc of demo material as well?

    We apreciate all of your input smile

    Thanks,

    Jesper

  17. EDIT: There was an update, but I'll go find the FSM thread and resurrect it and ask anyway.
    Hi all

    Quite a lot of people have been asking us about the 30th Anniversary Edition of Ron Goodwin's final film score VALHALLA.

    Last year we teased a 2 disc release, and thought it only fair to give an update on the project.

    Long story short, we have everything ready for the release.

    We are waiting for the final approval from Sony Music Denmark, but unfortunately that is taking quite a while longer than we expected (and were told).

    We hope to bring you this release around september, and we'll be back with all the info, tracklist etc. when we recieve confirmation from Sony.

    Happy easter everybody.

  19. And now an update:

    Good news everyone!

    PlantSounds have FINALLY reached an agreement with Ron Goodwin's estate, and are now allowed to release some of his original demos for the Valhalla Score he did in the mid 80's.

    This means we can finally start the process of pressing the cd.

    We can't wait, as this is a great score, and the bonus-material makes our release something truly special! smile

    Stay tuned!

  23. An update today at the Intrada forum, by Roger:

    Now that we're halfway through, here's a look at some composers that mostly likely will get some attention this year:

    Jerry Fielding, Bruce Broughton, Christopher Young, John Barry, Bill Conti, Lalo Schifrin, Kenyon Hopkins, Frank DeVol, John Barry, Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith, and maybe but who knows Basil Poledouris



    And Doug gives us some good news:

    ...More cool news. Currently working on one of my favorite soundtracks from the 60’s era. Our plan was to present the original album on CD in the best audio it has ever displayed but in a wonderful stroke of good fortune, the master elements we located revealed not only the pristine condition tapes we had sought but also the previously unreleased complete soundtrack, which had long since been determined to be lost to the ages. What a joy it is when discoveries like this happen… and what a joy to own this one should be for fans of this famous and prolific composer who during this period created one masterpiece after another. Stay tuned!
