    Well, I'm pledged - even if the shipping and handling at 27.54 suggests that Pledge is out to make a "killing" as well!

    I was hoping for a remastered complete filmscore, but this seems like a repress?

    And the same for the DVD; I have the film on blu-ray, but it's not a very good copy, so a newly restored release would be great.

    I have TKF twice and the film is too harrowing to have on the shelf!

    Is it too late to cancel the order for this? I'm having financial problems and need the money back.

    I've just had an email that the company has gone bust, but that the Killing Fields set is probably on its way anyway.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as I understand it, there is no chance whatsoever of Pledge Music supplying this.

    I've also recently received an email from another company called Bespoke Editions who appear to have taken on this project... see the link below:

    In the meantime, I'll be claiming back the money I spent from my credit card company with Pledge for an item they didn't supply....

    Sorry to hear this went downhill, I hope you can get something one way or another.

    I was really hoping for an official deluxe Killing Fields edition including the music Mike originally recorded for it; he was in great form at the time. Could be more gems like the sublime Bad News.

    That coarse, earthy orchestra never hit the spot for me.

    This invites the question: when was Mike not in good form? I can't think of such a time...

    Perhaps only in those private moments when he's singing in the shower...  :laugh:
