From Beyond Your Wildest Possible Soundtrack Wish-List...

Around the Corner of Anything You Would Ever Expect to Be Released...

Down the Hall of Your Most Ridiculous CD Fantasy...

It’s...THE MGM TREASURY COLLECTION!

FSM’s third box set, the MGM Treasury Collection, features 20 scores from the United Artists film library and record catalog. Many of these titles are long-treasured LPs that looked like they would never make it to CD...Billion Dollar Brain by Richard Rodney Bennett...How to Murder Your Wife by Neal Hefti...Charge of the Light Brigade by John Addison...The 7th Dawn by Riz Ortolani...The Final Option by Roy Budd...it is likely that every collector will have his own set of favorites!

All of the titles have been remastered from the best-possible stereo source tapes in the MGM archives, with these exceptions: Goodbye Again and Shake Hands With the Devil are in “electronic” (simulated) stereo; and the two Ennio Morricone scores are in mono, with The Hills Run Red largely taken from vinyl (the only source for the recording). For most of the scores (and the United Artists catalog in general), the album masters are the only surviving recordings, but complete masters were located for The Fugitive Kind (Kenyon Hopkins) and The Happy Ending (Michel Legrand) allowing complete-score presentations. Finally, Pussycat, Pussycat I Love You (Lalo Schifrin) and Hornets’ Nest make their debut presentations in complete form. Two additional notes: The Glory Guys (Riz Ortolani) is the LP re-recording, but bonus tracks have been added from the London session masters, and The Final Option is a hybrid of the Varese Sarabande and Milan LP programs (containing all of the tracks).

Unlike our first two box sets—Elmer Bernstein’s Film Music Collection and Superman: The Music—the MGM Treasury Collection is not packaged with a deluxe book. Instead, the box set comes with two “clamshell” or butterfy cases—each containing six discs—and a 48-page booklet containing album covers, track lists, credits and a short introduction.

FSM has not abdicated its responsibility in providing the world’s most obsessively complete and detailed liner notes! Comprehensive liner notes to all 20 scores are presented as online notes on our website...for free! Simply go here to begin reading and learning about these classic scores. (By publishing the liner notes only, we are able to offer this box set for $129.95 rather than the $199.95 of the Elmer Bernstein set. That’s a $70 savings and, we think, the right way to present this rare and highly eclectic material.)

The liner notes will stay on our website indefinitely but the box set itself is sure to go fast—only 1,200 are being pressed. Buy one now so you can own The Final Option...and not face your own “final option” in high prices on ebay!
