Those of us who were close to the process don't avoid taking about it because of some deep, dark secret. We're just being polite and deferring to Howard. If he wants to go deeper into his decision-mak

That's not the actual cover. I always use temp covers when I write. Not sure why. It helps with mood, I guess.   And yes, the book follows the complete Extended Scores ... and in the order a

This is the double-edged sword of contracts: 1) hooray you have a contract!, but 2) you're completely at their mercy.   I'm not making any noise on social media (does this count?), but I hav

I still want to know if the FOTR reissue will be identical to the 2005 set, or redone to remove tracking and restore Shore's intentions

 

As much as I'd like to see that, I doubt they'd expend the time and money to redo the set to that extent.

Many consumers probably aren't aware or would even understand what material is missing. They might not even care: "I don't want all that useless stuff that wasn't in the movie, I just want the soundtrack the way it is in the film."

We die-hards are a minority, and maybe not even a very vocal one.

Martin Shkreli is the scum of the earth pharmaceutical executive who first entered the news by raising the price of an AIDS drug by 1000% or something.  Then he later bought the only manufactured copy of Wu Tang Clan's last album for $2 million just so he could hoard and keep fans from hearing it.  Later, he promised to release the files for free if Donald Trump won the presidency, which he did and then Shkreli released the album.

He's actually only released the intro and one track, and has threatened to destroy the whole thing

 

Haha, of course.  He's a terrible person not least because he loves playing up his perceived persona of being an evil millionaire, which...only an evil millionaire would do.

So if I've understood the last page correctly we're finally getting The Music of the Hobbit Films bundled with a re-done FOTR CR as well as the last Wu Tang Clan album? I'd best start saving.

 

No need. I'm the only one getting it and I'm not sharing.

Hopefully we'll get some more definite news like "Gridlock finally broken. Studio crushed, Shore triumphant. Flood gates of LotR and Hobbit related music releases opened! The Hobbit book is fast forwarded to printing!".
