There are some real grouchy mother f*ckers on this board, who simply have no patience and seem to think they are entitled to Varese Club releases, when really no one is entitled to anything ever. Deal with it.

The thought of only one club release before the end of the year tells me the club is not totally dead; only brain dead. Maybe they should be taken off life support altogether.

hilarious

I don't see what the big deal is, it's demand for a product. What's wrong with that? It makes the world go round.

I tried to read your post, but I ran out of patience.

Demand for a product doesn't have to be demanding a product.

Demand for a product doesn't have to be demanding a project.


It's a fine line my friend.smile

If Club releases come, they will come when Robert Townson and co. want them to come, not when we do.

If you don't like that fact, then quit wasting your time bitching about it here; start your own label and soundtrack club, and do exactly what the various differing voices on this board demand, the instant they demand it, despite the fact that it would be impossible, as the voices contradict.

Odds are, you would start doing what all the labels do, and ignore us, and do what you want, when you can, the way you want, and let the chips fall as they may; someone out there will thank you for it.

Club? A club lets its members know what's going once in a while. They should change the name from "Varese Club" to "Varese Secret Society".
Talking of Societies, I joined the Film Music Society as a paid member a month short of a year ago. I've received and heard nothing from them – apart from getting the Rosenman CD which I bought and that was supposed to be exclusive to members, but which was being sold at SAE a few weeks later to anyone without a membership. According to the membership info, I was supposed to be seeing some fantastic other exclusive film music releases which were in the pipeline for the year ahead, and which my membership would entitle me to buy. No such thing has happened as far as I know. There was also supposed to be a newsletter for members, which didn't materialize even once.
Oh well, if nothing else, it's nice to be able to say I'm a "Member of the Film Music Society". Sounds intellectual.

Agreed, how this went from "a little contact to your customer base" to demanding releases instantly I don't quite get. For all the people who complain about how obnoxious film score fans have gotten I have certainly noticed the majority of negativity coming from those attacking those who are expressing an interest in wanting something and defending the labels blindly at any cost. I'm starting to suspect we have a lot of specialty label employees undercover on this board!

I agree with you, it's a very touchy crowd here?

Only thing I don't like is how there isn't even an announcement saying titles coming soon at the very least

I am not surprised. There are always those "employees" who will br--- nose the boss. The head of the company should never be questioned. Give me a break !

What in the world are you ranting about? I'm completely lost. And why won't you spell out the word "brown"? Did that become a curse when I wasn't looking?

Is the Club even necessary anymore? It's purpose was to sell CDs that had a limited print run, usually of 3,000 copies or less. At the time that was a novelty. But every CD is essentially a limited edition CD now. We could call it the Intrada Club Release, or the Kritzerland Club Release, or the Quartet Club. Every label including Varese regular issues are limited editions which in my mind negates any necessity of having a separate brand called 'The Club'.
What would be the difference between having a 1,500 copy Varese Club edition of ENEMY MINE and having a 1,500 copy Varese regular release of ENEMY MINE? I don't see the difference.

This "new direction" VS seems to be on with concerts makes Kritzerland the main player in the marketplace for titles that "I" want.

Color me optimistic, but I'm calling it "the calm before the storm."

You are absolutely right. The club isn't necessary anymore. What annoys me most is that Varese has control of titles that other specialty labels could be releasing.
