gosh do i love this score and release.   it really sounds like JW had a blast writing this one.   there is simply NO WAY you can prefer the OST to this release.   Hopeful

When I saw this thread bumped I thought this might be on the cards 😔 

Really?

Wow, maybe I am underestimating 1941. The movie is an early Spielberg classic with a wildly populare score by JW, so...

Dammit, I can only order this on Friday. :crymore:

Dammit, now I am seriously starting to get worried.

Is there a way to see on the La-La Land website how many sets are still left?

shipped... and dissapointed it's not sold out already... (Just kidding)

i had to eat (and pay) a hot dog for being able to seat in the wifi zone of a mall, ... adding 2€ for the final price of the set.

And i cound have ordered it just now at the uni:P

But i was exultant yesterday so i dont care, and you never know with these releases :ola:

So anybody know the answer to this? :|

LLL usually informs if one of their releases is running low. And Jason keeps us pretty well informed if there are any significant developments we should know about. :)

The score is good, the movie is no classic

Okay, thanks.

My concern is, though, that if the CDs are really going that fast, even Jason can't warn us in time...

It's attained cult status among Spielberg fans.

I understand your concern but could be that we are overestimating the popularity of this release as we look at it from JW fan perspective. Let's hope the 3500 pressing lasts for a while. Home Alone is not yet sold out and that is also a pretty popular score.

Spacecamp was not widely available prior to Intrada release and surprisingly sought after. 1941 OST has been around and available still for quite a long time. I can't estimate how much demand or popularity it holds in the film music community in general. It can be very difficult to estimate these things for less known/discussed scores. They could be very popular or they could take years to sell out. I would think 1941 is pretty popular.

And Family Plot is still available despite being pretty sought after and highly anticipated by fans. It has a larger 5000 unit pressing though.

La-La Land's website will never tell you that information. However, MV Gerhard of La-La Land Records is great a posting on the FSM forums when a title is close to selling out, and also occasionally just giving general updates of how many units a popular title has sold. If he posts anything on FSM, I'll repost it here

According to Varese's website, there are 2298 copies of Family Plot still available. You just enter a really large number into the "Add to Cart" box and an error message pops up telling you how many copies are available.

Interesting.

Does that work on the La-La Land website too? :)

Why not?

No money or no interest? The former I can understand, the latter not!

It's actually not only the C&C thing (although that's obviously part of it), but just as much because I never really liked the score in the first place. It has a couple of OK marches, but overall I don't really connect to it. Too bombastic, too noisy. And that goes for both how it works in the abysmal film and alone. So I think I'm more than set with my ol' Varese release, which I don't play that often anyway.

Well, like I said somewhere else, I am not a big fan of this movie/score, either (or at least haven't been up till now), but I will get this release anyway just because it seems to me like a score that I might end up enjoying later. You never know.

I too have the Varese release (and almost never play it), but still... this seems like too great an opportunity to miss. And I gotta say, so far I have never regretted buying a JW album. :)

That's precisely the reason why Predator, The Poseidon Adventure, SpaceCamp, and Explorers sold out so fast.

Since 1941 has an OST that's still in print, it won't sell out as fast.

I don't think that the Varese release of 1941 is still in print, though. It's not for sale on their site.
