Just found this at the local record shop on Vinyl for $8. Amazing.

JF, put on a pair of headphones, turn off the lights, and listen to these two tracks:

I'm not a John Williams fan, but I think the re-release of the Jurassic Park score on LP was worth exactly one chuckle.

The "LIMITED EDITION COLORED VINYL RE-RELEASE OF YOUR FAVORITE HORROR MOVIES AS A KID" trend is a racket that I have fallen for over and over again.

I got The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verill: Transparent “Meteor Shit” green disc. I had my fingers crossed for Father’s Day: Cake Icing vinyl with Blood Clot splatter, but Meteor Shit was definitely my #2 pick.

Pun intendo.

Because Monty dislikes 80s synth scores(and JF is oblivious to many of them), I'm going to post a sampling (over the next few days, or whatever) of the some of the best (and possibly worst) this era has to offer - specifically, the tail-end of the analog era, right before sampling and digital synthesis became cool.

I'll skip over the famous ones, like Blade Runner, because JF already knows that score.

Let's start with 1981. Thief. Tangerine Dream. The "love theme" track (Beach Theme) always makes it onto a greatest hits album, but it's bullshit compared to the first 15 perfect minutes (the first 2 tracks).

I've been meaning to listen to more Tangerine Dream after hearing Phaedra for the first time a couple months back.

It just hits my ear so right.

Forgot about doing this...shit...

Vangelis scored a crap load of films in the 80s and 90s. In between Blade Runner(82) and The Bounty(84), he scored a little-known Japanese movie, Antarctica. And it is his best score. Here be an excerpt.

If movie scores are "hip as fuck" these days, why do modern-day scores all suck?

It's all about the reissues and variants, man. Mondo variants will usually be priced at about $150-250+.

Their Drive score sold out in 30 minutes flat.

I didn't get one.

I'm still angry about that.

Every Goblin score has been reissued in the last year and I lust for every single one of them.

Jump on that shit, Monty. The window will only stay open until Starbucks has them for sale at the counter.

Er, I just got this masterpiece. On CD. The disc is a boring plain silver, but there are some snappy liner notes.

How is that anyway? I've heard conflicting opinion on the performance, but every time I sees it, I wants it.

I collect soundtracks to listen to the MUSIC, not just to have limited pressings on the shelf in the original shrinkwrap (and on a dead technology, to boot).

Vinyl is a "dead technology" which is why it's the only physical medium for music actually experiencing sales growth.

If you're buying records for the artwork/design, more power to you. If you're buying them to listen to, then consumption of drugs and/or alchohol is definitely a prerequisite. Sonically, the medium has been obsolete since the 70s; practically, since 1984.

Let's just put this into perspective - the top selling LP, in the US, last year was Daft Punk's R A M, selling 49,000 copies. In total, consumers in the US purchased 6.1 million records (indeed, an increase from previous years). During the same period, consumers purchased 165 million CDs.

Seriously, it just looks like 50,000 people around the country are buying 12 records a year.

How does that compare to CD sales, say, 10 years ago? Talk about dying formats.

At any rate, I wasn't trying to make an argument that LP sales are ever going to surpass CD sales. Physical media in general is gasping its last. But there is an undeniable, very small, but still healthy market for limited edition LPs as a niche product. Sound quality is entirely irrelevant to that point but keep pounding that drum, regardless. Like discussions of "orange and teal" that never gets tiresome, either.

CDs account for 41% of recorded music sales around the world, or about $15 billion. For comparison, DVD and Blu-Ray sales are about $17 billion. Both those are down from previous years. But so are online movie rentals, "digital" music sales, and every other method of selling media to consumers.

In Japan, CDs account for 85 percent of all music sales. Very few people there want or care for online music sales. That percentage is up from previous years.

LP sales are statistically insignificant. Everywhere on the planet.

Facts are fun.

Doesn't mean they're dying, it just means they're a niche. And they are. A niche with a very small but very loyal following, loyal enough to get major artists to start pressing to vinyl again.

No, it's not much. No, it's not going to make a huge impact or change the industry. No, vinyl is not going to become mainstream again, ever.

But it's a niche showing no signs that it is suffering in any way -- quite the opposite -- so calling it "dying" is a bit of a stretch.

Twenty years from now, there will still be people buying vinyl. Bank on it.

I didn't. Cru said CDs were dying. I disagreed with the assessment that a $15 billion revenue stream should be considered dying.

I love collecting things. And if records is your thing, awesome. But this weird attitude that they sound great is bizarre (like invisible guy in the sky bizarre).

Facts are fun, and the fact is that CDs sales have declined year over year since their late 90s peak. In 1999, CDs sold nearly $800 million worth in North America. Last year they sold just under $300. The last week of August was the worst week in terms of album sales since the beginning of the soundscan era, and the first time that weekly album sales in the US dropped below $4 million. It beat the record for all-time worst sales that was set last August.

Meanwhile, worldwide vinyl sales have improved every year since bottoming out in 2006. Vinyl sales have nearly quadrupled since then and considering this is happening at a time when almost every other form of physical media is struggling, that's actually doubly impressive.

Why you keep bring up raw numbers when I'm talking about trends is beyond me.

Quote:

Also not sure why you keep bringing this up since I never said anything of the sort and even if I had it has no relevance to the discussion at hand. Just for the record (so to speak): while I enjoy listening to my LPs, and will continue to buy and enjoy them, it's not even an arguable point that CDs sound better.

I can see why die-hard purists would take issue with it but I've got no real issues with it. None of the versions are going to supplant the originals, but they're all still fun.

Daniel Pemberton's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is the best current film score I have heard in YEARS...like a great, lost Lalo Schifrin score from 1965.



I can't remember the last time I watched a new movie and had a big, dopey smile on my face almost entirely due to the music. Shame the movie tanked...I would have loved to see a sequel just to get another score as good as this one (and it was a fun movie, too).
