So Masters of The Universe is definitely coming, but it's a 2disc set
Is it going to be limited?

Yes, 3000 copies and the first 100 will be signed by Mr. Conti if you order the CD from La-La Land.
Huh ... To qote Aragorn from TTT: we must be quick.
Quick, quick as fast as you can
You can't catch me,
I'm the Gingerbread man
Well we can relax it was the Outer Limits.
Oh well kudos to LaLaLand for releasing it and getting the music out there.
Indeed, but to say that everybody should lay aside 30 dollars for this release was a bit, eh, optimistic?
To me, yeah, although there are quite a few fans of the composer out there.
I thought this might be something a little more special.
But I'll never criticize the labels, unlike some, for their limited edition releases I have no interest in because someone else probably had their dreams come true.
Me neither though. It gives hope for other TV series too. Actually, come to think of it, 60s TV series are doing well in CD releases lately, what with Network's complete releases and Lalalandrecords with Lost in Space and all.
Yeah, plus they do have Masters Of The Universe coming and finally it appears Akira Ifukube's Zatoichi score later this summer.
I've never heard a non-Kaiju Ifukube score. Should be interesting.
I thought the Maters of the Universe release was due by now? Can't find hide nor hair of it....anyone know something I don't?
Last time I heard anything it was supposed to be this week. On the 18th I believe.
Next Tuesday, July 22nd according to LaLaLand.
Thanks for that.....
Can't wait! MOTU here we come.
Wow. I was going to push this thread up for a response. Good to know it's still coming
LaLaLand to announce 2 disc Masters Of The Universe Today. Around 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Pacific Time.
I think the first 100 or so will be autographed by Bill Conti. I think it will be limited to 3000 copies.
Anyone mind briefly filling me in on this score? Should one be excited?
If you like Conti and a big orchestral score with some temp track influences, then yes.
It's been years since I've listened/watched the film so I can't be more specific but it's a heavily requested score.

The main title is definitely inspired by superman (and HOLST), perhaps even a bit too close for some people.
Its one of my favorite Conti scores.
Here is the link with soundclips:
Autographed copies are now gone according to LaLaLand's post over at FSM.
Very interesting. I haven't seen this movie in years and have never heard the soundtrack outside of the movie.
Ordered (and hopefully with an autograph ) ! Some of the best Conti ever even with those obvious influences from different musical sources. A great fantasy/adventure score with flair.

God I remember that main theme! Loved it when I was a kid. Might just have to get this.
Long forgotten, but still very cool score
sounds pretty good.I didn;t remember this
I'll think about it.Price is ok. If it's not sold out in 2 hours...
It's simple enough to me; any score album which features a track called Battle At The Gym, has to be worth the shipping costs alone.
Ditto. I've been listening to the samples, they are great! The sound quality is far superior to the previous muddy sounding affair, and you get the complete score, plus the original album remastered to boot!
This one is going to be getting played to death, oh yes.
I ordered THE BIG COUNTRY instead. Much better movie and much better music.
*runs in, panting*
It's not... sold out... yet... is it??
No, but you missed the autographed copies.
Ah, doesn't matter, as long as I get the music.
I was fast enough to get an autographed copy! 8O And apparently Conti had signed more than 100 CDs (~ 150) although autographed copies ran out in first 10 minutes. And 20$ is very cheap for a 2 CD set.
And the autograph is just a nice bonus for me. The music here is really what counts.
Ordered! Too bad I missed the autographed copies, would've been a nice icing on cake ... 8O But of course, as Incanus already said, the music is important.

Fantastic score to an otherwise slightly enjoyable film.
I compare it to Jaws 3 in that regard.
Looks like I got an autographed copy and when I got home yesterday I had a shipping confirmation.
I'll have to order it tomorrow.
Will this be available via ScreenArchives?
They have this release already listed on their site
Not sure if I was fast enough for an autographed copy.....thesite id not say "Autographed Copies Run Out" type thing when I ordered, but I know that is no guarantee....we live in hope! Either way - I've been waiting to own a copy of this for a while and £15 (including shipping) for this score - esp as a limited edition - is a no-brainer. That is only a little more than a chart CD in the UK....

What is your order number? If your order number is between 11195 and 11304 you will receive an autographed copy.
Interesting, it hasn't yet sold out. Has anybody received it already?
Interesting, it hasn't yet sold out.
It better bloody not.
Has anybody received it already?
Yes, I received my copy today.
I'm still waiting for mine. It has shipped.
According to LaLaLand (in a post over at FSM), it's selling faster than Godzilla so it may not be around much longer.
Has anybody received it already?Yes, I received my copy today.
Well, how is it? :cool:
Mine has already shipped too, but it'll take a little longer, since I live in Europe ...
