How far will you go to get the film scores
Just like to say how far you go to get the film scores you are after? There lots coming out at
the same time and the cost of it all ? You get a soundtrack you after that's solid out you pay
over price to get you hands on it then it come out again by someone just after you paid £
60 pounds for it ? It winds me up. What do you think out there

Now on topic again!:
I have paid high amounts for scores that has been on my wantlist
for ages and overtime got re-released in normal or expanded
form, that sucks indeed! From the other hand I have enjoyed
these cd's for quite some time over the years. Also those "older"
versions still has some nostalgic value to me!
Nowadays i am not spending any fortune on cd's that are still on
my most wanted list because i think sooner or later they are going
to be re-released again.
It looks like nowadays the cd companies aren't going to take any
changes and are looking for titles to release that has
been on many peoples want list and are out of print for a long
time, this way they have a kind of certainty that these cd's are
also going to sell out (fast!).
In this difficult time for releasing physical cd's it is almost
inevitable for the lables to release titles that are going to sell out
for sure and in that case they have no choice to re-release an
(OOP) cd that already has seen the light of day, too easy but
luckily it still seems very effective I am afraid....

If it's any consolation, I had spent good money for the original releases of Goldsmith's The Burbs by Varese and FSM's The Omega Man. Both were re-released not that long afterwards. The Omega Man was a double screw up because unknowingly my first purchase was a counterfeit which wasn't cheap and the second purchase, the original, wasn't cheap either. So as stated... shit happens! The funny thing is that I play the counterfeit, the original is still sealed. Go figure.

It depends. The film scores I want have never been released in ANY form, so the question for me is moot. STRANGERS WHEN WE MEET by George Duning; BLADE TRINITY by Ramin Djawadi; the controversial Cimmerian Records release of Morricone's THE THING, which I WAS able to find.
I'd pay big bucks for these SCORE ONLY releases, but the record companies and movie producers, having lacked the foresight to release score-only material, have made it virtually impossible for music lovers to obtain the desired music. Perhaps SAE's releases of the above movies with scores on ISOLATED AUDIO TRACKS is the only way to go. NOW, just try and get SAE to release the MOVIES you want so you can hear the SCORES you want!
