    The Mank FYC (which is different from the retail album) is available to stream here:

    https://film.netflixawards.com/mank

    The fine people over at the John Williams Fan Network extracted the URL download links for the 24-bit lossless(!) WAV files here:

    https://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.p...aturing-music/

    Unfortunately, for some reason there is one track missing from the streaming that is available on the FYC CD. "Billboard" comes after "(If Only You Could) Save Me" on the CD. Not sure if it corresponds exactly to one of the tracks on the retail album. Not missing, see below

    Not true.

    The person who made the design on the CD covers mislabled the two tracks that are merged together. The CD is "missing" that track, when in reality Billboard was combined with an instrumental source cue of the song.

    This is because score CDs cannot contain original songs within them. So we are not missing anything on the CD or in the digital files. They were just combined and the tracklisting accientally lists it as another track. Academy rules are strict when it comes to submitting work for Best Original Score and Best Original Song. I think after the failed nomination for the song at all other award bodies, including the Golden Globes, the Netflix FYC PR team decided not to promote the song, so they only sent the score out.

    Also of note, the .WAV files are 24-bit / 48.000kHz while the CD is only 16/44. The CD is about a second shorter, otherwise it's the same content in a lesser quality.

    No worries.

    To clarify: the tracklisting on the CD is an error. The online FYC and the CD match, but the online FYC is 24/48 and the CD by nature is only 16/44. The CD runs a second shorter. The white CD was sent to the Academy, the black one was sent everywhere else.

    I'm guessing the person who made the covers for Netflix's FYC campaign was given a slightly different list (where the two songs were listed seperately), or messed up. I'm going with the former since all other combined cues were correctly labeled. "If Only You Could Save Me" and "Billboard" are combined on the CD just as in the .WAV files, and in both it is only an instrumental source cue.

    I'm also guessing that maybe they considered putting the full song on there for consideration but didn't at the last minute given how it was ignored by all other awards. On the Mank FYC website, it's not even part of the tracklisting.

    I've noticed one additional discrepancy. Towards the end of the FYC score, there's a track called "Willie's Been Paying, Welles Arrives" on the digital and "Willie's Been Playing, Welles Arrives" on the CD. I haven't seen the movie yet, so does anyone know whether it's supposed to be Paying or Playing?

    I confirmed one more misprint on the FYC CD sleeve. It says "Election Night Nightmarish Montage" is the first track on Disc 2, but, in fact, it appears as the last track of Disc 1.

    I sent an inquiry to NetflixAwards, and it seems they only printed sheet music for the "All This Time" cue. So, the other two pieces of sheet music may have come from another source (similar to the one with a personalized card).

    To be fair, they deny the white Mank CD exists, but then confirmed it was Academy only in another reply.

    Is this ever going to be available for purchase on vinyl ? Did they not say it was coming or did I dream that ?

    It was my understanding that a commercial release was coming down the pike. I wonder if Mank tanking at the awards coupled with vinyl production shortages worldwide ended up putting the kibosh on that.

    You definitely didnít dream it. From an email sent to subscribers, dated December 5 2020;

    Vinyl fans: we will be offering the score on vinyl early next year. The vinyl score will not contain the extra two hours of material.

    I'm hoping it's just vinyl production delays. I really enjoyed the Mank OST and that packaging looked awesome! Would really love to have it in my collection. Hopefully it will come *soon*

    Early next year ? Ooops! LOL. Oh well here's to hoping it's just due to vinyl production delays. Glad I didn't dream it and hoping it will still eventually be released.
