    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.
