    FSM announces the announcement of the Supes box set, which will go on sale at 3 P.M. Eastern time on Thursday, February 21 2008 on Screen Archives.

    I'm torn between wanting this set and not -- I already have Williams' complete score as an isolated track on the Superman DVD (as well as alternate cues) but some fans are really yearning for Courage's work on the fourth film, which makes me curious if it's really that good. I wasn't a big fan of Thorne's reworking of Williams's score for the second and third films, though.

    I, too, and torn between getting this or not - and it will probably boil down to whether I'm willing to pay for the rest of the music apart from the music that was released in the 2-CD Warners Archive/Rhino set for Superman: The Movie.

    I suppose with the pound doing so well against the dollar it's not as much of a strain on the wallet as it could be.

    The references to "songs" is a bit disconcerting also!!

    An extra $80 to get it signed by Ken Thorne and Ron Jones? Jesus Christ. And people moan about Intrada charging $25 for a double-CD set.

    I know! Ridiculous. When I first saw that there was going to be an autographed version I initially thought that there was going to be John Williams-signed merchandise. But alas, no. Imagine how much that would have added to the price!?

  2. The only thing about this box (still available in Germany for about 100 €) that really interests me is the score for the first film.

    Yet I already own the Rhino set of "Superman TM" and that does not sound bad despite second generation material having been used.
    I also own the Varese re-recording.

    Too much money in one place then I guess.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.
  3. I also had the Rhino version before buying the box. But the rest of the films have got such great music - original as well as adapted music from Williams' original score - that the box was an immediate purchase.

    The only thing that interested me with the box was SUPERMAN IV (esp. the new Williams material), and this particular segment was given to me by a generous fellow fan. So now I'm pleased. I'm content with the old Warner release of the first score, and then I have an old combo of II and III as an LP-to-CD transfer which I hardly listen to. I'm not as big a SUPERMAN fan as most everyone else seems to be.
    I am extremely serious.
