It’s great that so many of you are taking advantage of our sale. The last one was a year ago so it’s not an event we put together lightly around here. A lot of titles are selling down quickly… and ironically we’ll even need to re-press a few after the sale ends this coming Wednesday, April 26. One sort of fun observation. About the only two titles receiving scant attention are from films directed by Otto Preminger: Bunny Lake Is Missing
and Hurry Sundown
. No love for Preminger? (Not counting In Harm’s Way
, of course.) I love both of the two scores on sale but I can see I’m in the minority. Especially Bunny Lake Is Missing
. By turns elegiac and haunting, complex and powerful. One of the really great symphonic scores of the 1960’s. Maybe Paul Glass is just too intense for today’s audiences.
In any case, thank you for being patient with your orders. As I sit here playing miniature golf in my office, snacking on pretzels and watching YouTube, I see off in the distance Jeff and the other hamsters spinning in all directions, working their tails off for you. I promise, as always, to toss them a few extra pellets at the end of the sale. Or maybe even let them fight over a pretzel.
Another Tuesday ahead, another new Intrada CD to be had. Two scores, one composer, action and romance from the 70’s and 80’s respectively. Artwork, contents and sound samples will be available here tomorrow evening and orders will begin shipping on Tuesday, March 21. If you’re up for some new movie music, come check things out.
More cool new music coming from us this Tuesday, March 7. An impressive 80-minutes crammed onto one CD! Fun, sentiment, action… this one has it all. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be up here late tomorrow afternoon. Orders begin shipping on Tuesday. Jeff is enjoying a vacation cruise right now so Regina is doing double duty as MVH (most valuable hamster) both in the order room and front office right now. We’re still giving her lunch breaks so please give her an extra day or so to cover all the bases and enjoy our latest album!
Somehow, movies made in the 60’s, shot using a widescreen format but in black and white have this terrific look and feel that widescreen color films can’t offer… and I’m not just referring to the obvious. Take a look at Otto Preminger’s movies. You’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s simply a dramatic format! So, alongside our new release of The Hustler
, which won an Academy Award for its widescreen black and white cinematography, we’re featuring on sale the haunting and powerful Paul Glass score from Otto Preminger’s Bunny Lake Is Missing
- also shot on widescreen black and white film. Enjoy the drama!
