Looks like MRS is getting a taste of their own medicine with this release. Wonder how they like having their tracks taken from them?

"...and the remaining 7 tracks are all previously unreleased movie versions"... It's not true 'cause they are available on "Original film music 4" bootleg CD...

Seems bootleggers are aware that FTD is preparing G.I. Blues for the end of the year. Well, that's my assumption. They rush now, we don't have to.

Tornado and all others, this is NOT a bootleg, its an MRS release, and legal.

Why did MRS not include these in their expensive box set? Did they receive a training by SONY/RCA/Parker as to include 19 from the box set and add a few?
