Added Minority Report to the list

That Mega Bass must have come in handy, especially when listening to the scores like Schindler's List.

Final batch of E.T. already?  Dang that didn't take that long.     https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?pageID=53&forumID=1&threadID=118900&archive=0

BTW what is the real difference between OUT OF PRINT and SOLD OUT?

Some titles in your list are tagged as SOLD OUT and the other ones as OUT OF PRINT.

What is the difference?

Out of Print means they not longer have a license to sell the title. Sometimes licenses expire before they ever printed as many as they were allowed, sometimes licenses expire around when they are selling their last copies anyway. Of of Print titles can come back if they renegotiate for a new license. 

 

Sold Out means they sold every single copy they could.  They might still have the license and could re-issue it with a re-negotiation, or the license could have expired at some point after last copy sold.

Out of Print means their license to sell the title expired before they were able to sell the amount that they were allowed to

Jay, thank you very much for the explanation.

what a shame an important score ike CEOTK does not manage to sell out.

 

But then its good because everyone who wanted it was able to order it :)

 

What do you mean what a shame?  With less than 100 units remaining this won't last more than a week or so with the 30% off sale

But that's the point, it s going to sell out. They were allowed to sell 5,000 copies, and they only have 100 left.

They probably got a lengthy license. After the sell out they might be able to reissue it with different bonus tracks, like Intrada is doing with Jaws. I dunno.

So that's why for example LLL keeps A.I.'s store page up with "Out of Print" instead of nixing it like with sold out titles? They're holding out hope for a renegotiation to print and sell the rest of the copies?

maybe but also if you were able to release such music wouldn’t you want the to keep the pages up as “hey look at the caliber of releases we’ve done!?”😊

Yes I would. But LLL deletes theirs.

 

Yeah it's strange it seems sometimes to be at the discretion of the folks running the site... sometimes thy leave them sometimes they delete them... doesn't seem to be a hard fast rule there.

 I'm happy with the Varese and did not order this one. It's sold out now and I don't care for the extra songs .The score wasn't remastered or anything .I did grab Home Alone 25th Anniversary though

Wow. So glad I got Close Encounters just a few weeks ago! Got Home Alone 2 awhile ago as well. Never heard Rosewood though. Darn.

Updates:

 

2010: Black Sunday (1977) [10,000 Copies] OUT OF PRINT

 

2015: Jaws 2 (1978) [limited] SOLD OUT

 

2013: The Fury (1978) [3,500 Copies] OUT OF PRINT

2018: Land of the Giants (1968) [1,000 Copies] OUT OF PRINT

Wow, several titles going out of print at once—that’s pretty unusual, isn’t it? And, forgive my lack of knowledge on this, but is “sold out” the same as out of print, or does it just mean out of stock?

I would never bother to post an update that something is merely temporarily out of stock. 

 

These titles are not being sold any more. Click each link to see. 

 

And there's no reason to think these all happened at once. I just happened to check today after not seeing Black Sunday in FSM's sale list.

I believe out of print means they've printed and sold the maximum number of copies they had a licence on, while sold out means that they didn't manage to print and/or sell all the copies they had a licence on before the license expired.

I believe "Out of Print" means their license has expired, which could mean they printed and sold the amount they were allowed to, OR it could mean their license expired, like time-wise, before they happened to sell all that they could have.  There's no way to know which it is unless they tell us.

 

"Sold Out" means they sold every copy they had, and won't be ordering any more.  This could be because they hit the limit of what they were allowed to sell, OR it could mean they didn't consider it a strong enough seller to order more even if they were allowed to.  Again there's no way to know unless they tell us.
