This is incredible!
La La Land Records, who is a major player and must know what is going on in the industry, says for all intents and purposes this is a lull before the storm of releases from Varese and yet the talk continues right over their comment as if their input is irrelevant.

But come to think of it this is coming from egocentric movie score fans who believe everything revolves around them and their opinions. I guess it isn't that incredible after all.

I hear ya, Morricone! I'm patiently awaiting the first announcement of thunderheads, myself!

Don't you see? La La Land wants us to think there will be more Varèse Club releases so we save up our money for them instead of spending it on La La Land releases, thus the people at La La Land don't have to work so hard fulfilling all those orders. If you don't see this, I pity you for your naïveté.

very kind of another label to shed some light or at least speculative light. what varese should have done months and months ago. but it's a relief to think there's more to come, and good stuff too by the sounds of it.

Why should Varèse have done this?

If they continue they will certainly do a HERRMANN AT UNIVERSAL box containing their own re-recordings and the original scores !!
Almost 10 months now ...

I think it's not necessarily what anyone 'should' be doing, but rather what they 'could'.

Varese seem to be a lone label in that communication with their speciality customers (outside of their regular releases) is virtually non-existent.

The continuation of the club series is a pretty big deal really - if it had stopped for any reason surrounding their recent acquisition, it would leave a huge question mark over whether the stuff they have in perpetuity would ever be available for expansion.

Most of the PR about recent events has been the usual corporate spiel - would it have hurt to have a more directed quote from Townson assuring that their usual traditions would remain the same?

Going by what La-La-Land have said and the fact that Varese have been highly involved in concerts this year, which may well have been thier focus recently rather than specialist releases, I'm assuming it's business as usual until I hear something different from Varese itself.

I continue to look forward to, and hope for, an expanded and remastered Varese release of John Barry's 'Peggy Sue Got Married' smile

i'm sure if you ponder it for a while you can figure it out.

The Soundtrack News section seems to be down at the Varese website. HMMMM.

So, it's gotten worse. We've gone from no news, to no news at all.

I know -- let's piss and moan about it. Sounds like a plan.

He wasn't complaining. If it's down then that infers it is currently being updated. Hopefully about Soundtrack Club news.
Of course, it could be news about the Christopher Young joining Varese's 35th Anniversary Halloween Gala. But I hope it's release news (if I've very lucky, it'll included an expanded Star Trek Into Darkness). smile

I spoke with Brian over there about the news section. He said the issue is being fixed.

He also told me the club is not done. Where do people get these bizarre ideas? If MV and the guy I spoke with at the label tell me it's not done, I believe them!

Hmmm, maybe it has something to do with a (now) almost ten months hiatus and a company (now under new ownership) that is more interested to organize concerts instead of doing (at least) just a batch of unexpanded LP/CD-Encores.

The home run for Varese would be an Alias box set by Giacchino. Don't they own the rights to Alias. Then bonus set with all songs.

The times were soundtrack fans could hope for exciting releases from Varerse-Club seems to be over.

I thing, with starting the Encore-CDs (just re-releasing their old catalog-titles without anything new material), Varese-Club begins the descent.

And with so many fantastic other Labels, wich releasing so many great and interesting scores every month, Varese has do release some very, very GOOD titles (and not some old re-releases every six or ten month), to get a good stand among the soundtrack labels.

Once (and thats without doubt) Varese WAS the TOP soundtrack-label.
But these times seems (sadly) to be over now!

If indeed Varese Club is over, why don't they license some of their great titles to another label; Intrada, LaLa etc. Why would Varese just sit on these titles buried in perpetuity.

It's not over simply because MV and one other poster confirmed they either talked to somebody or are in the know. And since when has Varese gone down hill? Copperhead, Elysium, Star Trek all say to me they are still doing good!

It cannot be over until they release Donaggio's complete Tourist Trap (not just the tracks on their Symphonic Suites disc). After that I don't care what happens.
