You'll be passing on three discs of Basil Poledouris, Craig Safan, Christopher Young, and more...just because they's no Morton Stevens? I'm disappointed there's no Stevens too, but considering the quality of the other composers on this set, I think that's cutting off your nose to spite your face!
Seriously...we've rescued some great music that took years of detective work and negotiations to get out and your immediate response is to focus on all the stuff not included? Why would you do that to yourself? Celebrate what we managed to get out. It's not like there's a shortage of stuff to listen to.
And I'm sorry Roger for doing that. It wasn't my intention to disparage this release in any way. I was mainly eager to hear T. Newman Fan's recollections on what the unincluded music sounded like, since some was by composers I consider myself a fan of. I was also working off of sketchy information at the time -- had no idea this was going to be a generous 3 disc set, for one! I thought it might be one or two discs, like the Battlestar Galactica volumes. I guess a 3 disc set means a Volume 2 is less likely, and that's perfectly reasonable and still generous (though obviously there was a second 4-disc volume of Buck Rogers, so I'm probably wrong that you aren't considering a follow-up).
From the little more we have learned from Creature Features, this looks like an AMAZING set and I will be buying it for certain...I'd be buying it even if it were only the Poledouris scores, so I can look at all the rest of it being a great bonus. And if you do a Volume 2 with scores by Folk, Drasnin, Stevens, etc. I will most certainly be buying that too. Thanks again.
