    I'm thinking Ben-Hur might be the final release.

    I figured Gremlins would be the final one.

    While Gremlins is a licensing achievement title, I can't really see that as being the capstone.

    However, from the beginning one of Lukas' main goals/promises was that he was going to release Miklos Rozsa's entire MGM catalog under his label, which is why we got the Rozsa box for those titles that could not stand alone as CD releases, for one reason or another. The release of Ben-Hur not only finally fulfills that goal/promise, but would also be a fitting capstone to the label as well.

    If they have reason to issue another edition of the Ben-Hur score and enough folks want to buy it, power to them.

    I however have no reason to supplant my excellent Rhino edition with another. I have already "corrected" my only qualms with that set by combining short tracks that naturally lead into each other to create longer tracks. I can't see myself needing any more music from that film.

    But it's been a great run for FSM, and I can't begin to count how many of their albums I have and enjoy.

    Terrible news.

    I own all FSM Williams CDs except the new Not With My Wife, You Don't and TV Omnibus. I plan to get both of them with 1941 or sooner.

    FSM's contributions to my JW collection have been exemplary.

    But have you ever seen the film or heard the score?

    Saw the film several years ago. I plan on getting the upcoming blu, and the score is fantastic.
