Post subject:  Psycho III - Carter Burwell

Any chance of us getting Psycho III this year, say around Halloween time? The movie turned 31 years old this past July and it would make a great addition to the Intrada library and my collection. I know there are dozens of cues that never made it into the final LP album by Carter Burwell. Please? Is there a way to find out if this is in the works? Thank you!

I had high hopes it would be released soon alter PSYCHO II...
It remains one of my top grails and I hope Intrada can release it complete soon!
Never released no CD and lot of music missing from the LP.

Psycho III is top on my list for desired soundtracks, especially if we can have a complete version with all the cues. I know "Scream of Love" has at least 3 versions so there is plenty to work with in terms of bonus tracks as well. I think "Psycho IV: The Beginning" would be a good release. May as well have them all. I've just about given up that anyone at Intrada is really paying any attention to these suggestions. Seems like we've been pleading our case for this release for at least the past three years without any results. Disappointing to say the least.

Your disappointment is completely misdirected. If you must complain, direct it towards Universal Pictures, and to a smaller extent, UMG. Lately, Universal Pictures seems to just about only approve albums for big anniversaries (Back to the Future and Jaws series) or when big names are attached to the approval process (various other John Williams releases and Kevin Costner for the Waterworld expansion).

There are literally hundreds of viable options to release from the studio, and Psycho III is undoubtedly of extremely little importance in their view.

You would think Psycho would get a little more respect - especially after the resurgence interest thanks to the A&E show. Anyway, I think that frustration is simply this: several years ago, a poster in one of the Intrada suggestion forums indicated that an expanded version of PSYCHO III may be coming. While we are thrilled to have Jerry Goldsmith's PSYCHO II, Burwell's PSYCHO III was an interesting score. And forgive me for saying this (as I am still planning to buy it and love the movie and the music) but if we can have an expanded version of Bruce Broughton's HONEY I BLEW UP THE KID, there is certainly a market for PSYCHO III.

The A&E show would do nothing substantial in boosting sales of a new Psycho III album.

That poster was probably referring to the fact that Intrada is always looking into releasing this stuff, but once again, the labels are limited by licensors' willingness. If Universal/UMG were licensing soundtracks out like Paramount has been, then Psycho III very well could have been released years ago.

Psycho III may be an interesting score to some, but there's no way consumer interest matches that of the Goldsmith score. That's just the way it is.

There's a market for both Psycho III and that Broughton score, but the owners of the two titles are different and have their own interests. Again, complain about Universal, not Intrada.

In fact I'm part of the market to both. Purchased the expanded Broughton score and would buy a complete PSYCHO III instantly.

I still have hope that it will be released some day.

I doubt very much Universal is the hold up in releasing rights to Psycho III music. I'm sure there wasn't as big a demand for "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" soundtrack and yet that was released on Percepto years ago. Even though I do love that score and even have one of the Vic Mizzy authographed copies. I don't think there are many people who even heard of that film but Psycho III! Come on! Even turds like Jaws III and Jaws the Revenge were able to get soundtrack releases. Not bad soundtracks but bad movies.

"The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" was all the way back in 2003 or around then, a time when virtually nothing came out from the studio's catalog. This business changes all the time. Jaws 3 and 4 may have been licensed as part of a package deal along with the first two, and I'm glad they were as I would listen to them a hundred times over (not via a boom box) before I would play the Psycho sequel scores.

I know how you feel to a certain extent, though, as I and others have been waiting for many titles to come from the Universal vaults, including big titles like the Airport series which I highly doubt is being ignored by the labels.

Personally I would rather have all the Psycho scores (4 Included) rather than all the Jaws scores but that's just my preference. Another Score that I think should be added as a complete expanded score is Philippe Sarde's "Ghost Story". Again,not a great film but a great score. The film was recently given a Blu Ray release with some extra features so it wouldn't be a bad time to release that one too.
