Just thought I'd give a heads-up to any fellow film music lovers out there:
I was surfing the web the other day and found out that Varese Sarabande (the exclusive film-track label) had released a new four-CD set called "Varese Sarabande: A 25th Anniversary Celebration." Upon investigation, I found that the discs contained some well-known but also many not-so-well-known (and hard-to-find) cues covering a long period of film (all the way back to Korngold, in fact). Each CD has a minimum of 20 tracks and the price is amazing: I picked up the box set for $17 on Amazon! I'm listening to it right now and it's just great stuff - I hadn't heard Bill Conti's "The Right Stuff" in years until today...amazing music! The booklet is nice too - photos of tons of Hollywood composers including a big photo of Jerry Goldsmith on the back (sniff).
I hope this doesn't come across as some sort of lame advertisement...I just love film music and wanted to make everyone aware of a great buy.
Take care everyone and Happy New Year.
