A sealed LP of the soundtrack to an Industrial film, Race For The Wire, composed and conducted my Marion Evans. Both sides are intentical in content. The film looks like one of those weird and stupid 20 minute documentaries they used to project on 16mm in school and concerns the production of aluminum steel cables. Interesting the way a top and talented composer could be commisioned to create music for such a small budgeted film back in the day. How much would it cost now, 30 or 40 brazillion?

I notice someone uploaded the entire LP online on some website if anyone is interested in checking it out. I like stuff like this. I have other industrial film soundtracks, sometimes the composer goes uncredited.

I bought two more of these, both factory sealed, no bar code and no info on the internet other than the availability of a download of the score. Emailed someone at the composers website and didn't recieve a response. Made in the EU, mini LP tri-fold cover. With another I bought a few months ago I now have three copies.

Just sent you a pm, Mike. I don't want to sell the LP but I would like to somehow burn a copy to CD for you but I have no way of doing so.

Off hand...

1970 Japanese vinyl pressing of Henry Mancini's "Never Give An Inch", released in the US as "Sometimes A Great Notion", $6.00.

Composer promo of "The Alarmist" (Christophe Beck) $2.00.

Composer promo of "Purgatory" (Brad Fiedel) $2.00

2 CD For Your Consideration promo release for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" (Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross) $1.00.

Some other stuff, these four come to mind. The Mancini vinyl I'm happy about. The US Decca LP is easy to come across, this pressing I've never seen before and the only info online about the recording is what I've posted on a discography.

For $2.00 each...

The Sound Of Speed (Bob Thompson)
Kirby Allen Presents; Chaino, New Sounds In Rock And Roll! - Jungle Rock (Chaino)

Both discs are on Dionysus Records, 2003

Checked out Amazon, both recordings are available for a fair price. Kirby Allen, producer of all of the Chaino LPs from the 1950's posted a review of the recording in 2003. The guy died at age 83 in a house fire in Mesa, Arizona a year ago last month. RIP Kirby Allen.

Went to a junkstore last night and poked around a pile of CDs, nothing but a pile of junk imo, broken, scratched jewel cases, Lady KaKa, a Death Row records Rap compilation... just a bunch of junk... Until I found a sealed promo CD from Greenspan Kohan Management, The Film Music Of Joe Hisaishi. Absolutely no info whatsoever online about the recording, not even at the Greenspan Kohan website. My guess it that it was manufactured and distributed in order to promote Joe Hisaishi's film music in the USA. Anyway, a nice surprise and I almost missed it amongst all the clutter. The deal at this place is buy on CD for $2.99 and get a second one free, for the freeby I chose The Country Side Of Jim Nabors, horrible!

At the beach earlier this morning and noticed a few LPs against a trash can, flipped through them and found a nice vinyl pressing on Atlantic Records of Ornette Coleman's, The Shape Of Jazz To Come and 24 Songs Of Charles Ives (Helen Boatwright and John Kirkpatrick) released on the Overtone label in 1954.

National Geographic's, Heroes Of The High Frontier (James Wesley Stemple)

Composer promo of music from the documentary, Heroes Of The High Frontier. This is a really good recording, sparce (about 20 minutes or so), performed by a small orchestra. A composer I've never heard of before.

Edit; The guy has a website, glad to see he's cool and has class and not just another moron playing around with artificial/simulated orchestral sound...

http://www.jamesstemple.com

Film Music (Steve Edwards)

Composer compilation promo with tracks from a number of oddball films, Bloodsport 2, True Vengence... Haven't listened to any of it yet. Never heard of the guy, he has over 80 film credits on the IMDB.

$2.00 each

Any "The Patriot" on thet Edwards promo?

Stemple is one of the many talented composers on "Batman: The Animated Series", though his input was very small.

I'm not sure. Most of the tracks are listed by title only, a few credit specific films.

Found an old school hampsters for $5.00; Frank And Jesse (Mark McKenzie)

Finally bought a copy of Cape Fear CD (Herrmann/Bernstein) for $5.00. Searched for an LP when the film was released, never found one. That was when I refused to have anything to do with those damn CDs. :lol:

Music Of The Serials; James King conducting the CinemaSound Orchestra

This is great, and sounds great. It's the original issue of a recording later reissued by Varese Sarabande as "Cliffhangers!" I've owned an LP of James King's Music Of Republic for awhile so this disc was a welcome find for $3.00.

Regarding the BLUE THUNDER Super Tracks promo CD, there are actually two different pressings. Check out this post by Stephen Lister on the FSM board:

I picked this up recently, even though I have the original BLUE THUNDER promo from a few years back. I love the score and wanted a spare copy, and it's a nice price. This recent release is a legit pressed CD, and sounds exactly like the original.

There are a couple of cosmetic differences in the packaging. The composer's name is much smaller on the spine of the new one. And the serial number on the inner ring of the CD is different. So it's not from exactly the same batch as the original hard-to-find pressing.

Listening to my copy earlier today the digital info on the car stereo reads, "Blue Thunder Soundtrack Repress (2008)".

I owned a copy of the LP awhile back and didn't really care for it, revisiting the score today I think it has a lot going for it. The electronic thump, thump sound of the helicoper is some tough stuff. Good film too, although it was basically ruined by the editing.
