BTW I was told the most beloved sci-fi series is from a TV series. So no not BTTF.

Ok there are 3 seperate releases:

#1. Early April: Limited Edition release of a beloved sci fi series. Also signed by composer

#2. Late April: 1. 1000 units of a beautiful whimsical score signed by composer

#3. Our 70th release. Our Most Extravagant release yet (only $30.00 to boot). A must have for any score collector. Signed by the composer. A 3 disc set.

a complete 1933 King Kong by Max Steiner, autographed to boot, wow

appart than the anacronism of max steiner signing a CD, it would be a waste of time and resources since an amazing re-recording already exists...

I'd be thrilled if this was another Farscape release, but I don't know how well the previous ones have sold. LaLa also handles the Galactica releases, so that's most likely. Razor, perhaps?

John Williams would not sign the c.d.'s . I could only think of Hook

Williams signed Goodbye Mr. Chips.

I lose sleep at night because we don't have a complete score to Shaft.

I hear cocoa is very effective for sleeping disorders.

This was posted over at FSM.

A beautiful whimsical score, limited to 1000 will be released on May 13th.

A 3-disc set, limited to 3000 will be released on June 3rd.

A 2-CD set is set for late June/early July but it was announced by someone else all ready that it would be Masters Of The Universe by Bill Conti and La La Land confirmed it.

Then it was mentioned that there are 5 other titles coming before Labor Day.

P.S. They mentioned they're not doing BTTF or Spartacus.

ID4 complete wouldn't need 3 discs, though

There'd have to be a LOT of alternates that didn't make either boot for it to be worth it for them to fill up 3 discs. You can already fit the entire score plus all the alternates we've ever heard on 2 discs

If there were a lot of alternate cues I could see it being a 3-CD set. Chances are though it might be music from a TV show for the 3-CD set.

I wouldn't mind getting Masters Of The Universe either Greg. I remember the show but I was too young to remember the music since I wasn't into film scores back then.

I'll settle for Masters of the Universe!

Ditto.

A newly remastered 2CD set of Masters of the Universe!? Excellent!!!! :mellow:

Isn't that the one filled with Holst references?

Yes, it does reference Mars in certain cues, and it's all the better for it. A worthy 4 star offering from Conti. ;)

Don't confuse it with The Right Stuff however. Conti actually lifted large sections of Holst's material note for note in that score as a homage to The Planets, with permission from the composer's estate.

Oh right Mark, I forgot about that thread... sorry.

Neil or Marc you can delete this one or merge it with the other one, my bad.

I've already said it... I'll say it again!

A worthy 4 star offering from Conti. It's easily my favourite score by him. I've listened to the original and 1992 expanded albums so many times I loose count, I know the score like the back of my hand. It's going to be a blast to finally be able to listen to the music without all that hissy interference. :nod:

I also did it on the Other Topic board with two identical threads, my god I'm turning into Thor!!!! :jump:

But seriously, the 3 disc will be autographed by the composer so Spartacus is out of the question and people over at FSM seem to think it's gonna be the Batman animated series in some form, which sadly, would be hard to get the composer's signature as well. Unless Shirley Walker autographed it a over a year ago.

I'm curious about the 3 disc set.

From your comment in the other thread Mark, it's very possible they had her sign it before she died.

Batman the Animated Series would be an absolute dream release.

It looks like LaLaland has eight scores they are going to try and get out before Labor Day.

If that happens I think that will be a very big accomplishment from any of the online retailers today.

This is the moment I have been waiting for fellows: a kingly score by Conti, the Masters of the Universe soon within our grasp! You ought not to hesitate in this case, easily the best score by Conti and top 5 score of all time which defined my film music listening in my childhood.

When I saw this film the musical aspect permeated my mind above all and I was not able to think but one thing: to acquire this film in order to listen the score. It was my first boost to the cinematic music and great impact it did too.

I must buy this no doubt. Great news.

Better than Rocky?

Definitely. Rocky is good, whilst overrated. I personally happen to loathe disco originated music with every ounce of my being. That watered down type of 70's funk which Rocky is littered with. For Your Eyes Only... *shudders*

I really like the piano writing though, and the sweeping theme that I associate strongly with the scene in which

Mickey dies

in Rocky III.
