I understand those who would hope that Varese did not just sit on their rights for certain titles and actually release beautifully remastered and expanded editions like other labels do.

But I also understand Varese who continually releases scores for current films and obviously do not want to oversaturate the market and plunder their archives. Instead they wait for the time when these archives might be more lucrative for them.

Having said that, c´mon, Varese, at least do Goldsmith´s NEMESIS now so my STAR TREK collection is complete...

Which will exactly be when? Let's face it: music keeps losing value (at least in most cases!). A 1920s recording is worth close to nuttin' these days - and in fifty years it will be worth even less since the people who can relate to the stuff get less and less. Sad, but true...

Actually, I've been kind of appreciative of their extended hiatus as it allows me to build up my cash reserves for things to come. (I'm sure someday Mr. Townson will "throw us a frickin' bone" when he feels good and ready.)

All I know is LLL said it is the calm before the storm and considering how top notch they are I find them trust-worthy in what they say...

I sure hope Varese release Dante's Peak deluxe edition!


It's probably going to be the first one.

Awesome! I was starting to miss all the threads complaining about how the latest Varese Club releases had nothing good in them.

Watch! The chief complaint next year will be that "the speed of Club Releases is too fast for our wallets to keep up"? We've been warned to be careful what we wished for.

Maybe everybody shoudl read it again -- Varese was not asked and did not say, anything about the CD Club, but rather just "upcoming releases".

Yes, but upcoming releases would presumably include club titles.

Yeah they commented again mentioning the theater looked calm before the storm of the concert . Read too much into this one... Nothing gained here. Back to knowing nothing at all.

Robert Townsend was on the second panel at the Fans of Film Music gathering in LA today. As no one asked him during the Q&A session - when I went through the autograph line I asked him if further CD Club items would be forthcoming. He said absolutely yes; the CD Club is still part of the Varese business plan. This year has been busy with 35th Anniversary and world wide concerts. He still takes personal interest in the CD Club releases.

Patience is a virtue....

I don't know, when I see it I'll believe it. I'm especially nervous about any more golden age cds from the V/S Club. confused

And why do they keep giving concerts which are too far for nearly all V/S cd buyers to attend? V/S cds can be purchased by tens of thousands of fans world wide.

I wish V/S would get back in the business of film score cds including a few golden age cds.

I am a big fan of golden age myself,but the one I would like to see them finally release is THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER. I guess that would be called silver age.
