A different kind of good music news

Film Score Monthly, for the first time, is not only reissuing an out-of-print FSM CD but making it an unlimited edition: i.e., not limited to 3,000 copies as their other releases are.

The reissue: Ron Grainer's classic score to 1971's The Omega Man, with Charlton Heston as the last man on Earth. (This was the second of three sorta-kinda film adaptations of Richard Matheson's I Am Legend, by the way: the first was The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price, and the third was I Am Legend with Will Smith.) The Omega Man was one of FSM's earliest CDs to sell out, and since then CD-R copies of the score started cropping up on eBay, and the FSM guys went all "Ah HELL no!" They also improved the CD quality, so there's extra incentive.
