Oh, and Mr. Popular, if you're an industry vet just like me, why don't you post under your own name or, like me, let everyone know who you are. What are you afraid of?

He's a producer employee, just like haineshisway used to be.

Damn. My whole film music world is crumbling. Talk about being deluded for 25 years!

He might be mobbed. He's extremely popular.

Yeah I wish Popular would duff the Phantom mask, speaking as one who loves trivia, knowing who's who, that sort of thing. Not saying this with any animosity, just curious. He is always here to defend Varese without fail, and my identity guessing via album credits isn't working!
Again, not saying this with any malice, just someone who's plowed thousands into the label for nearly 35 years now.

Thoughts? I'm sure you all will have some...


Perhaps they will go back and restore the dulcimer on "The Thorn Birds". Doubtful but it would be nice.


That'll be the day! By the way Mr. Phillippe, I purchased the Thorn Birds: A Case Study Of A Film Score when it first came out and I read through it quite often. Always wanted to say thank you so much for putting this great book together, and guiding Mr. Mancini's concept over the finish line. How great it would be if similar books were written spotlighting a score by Williams, Goldsmith, Morricone, Legrand and others......


Thank you for your kind words. It was quite an experience working on it. It took 6 years from start to publication. I got the green light on March 17, 1998 and it was released May 4, 2004.
I had Mancini's text but finding his sketches and scores was a long process as they were scattered at various storage facilities. I loved every minute working on it. It would be wonderful to have similar books by the composers you mention but the text has to come first.

My wish for the Varese employees is that this change brings about positive things like job security, new opportunities and work/home balance. As one who went through this some years ago, all I can say is stay positive and enjoy the ride.

A question for dmd.
Out of curiosity, will this new deal/takeover affect the whole Naxos distribution situation?

I don’t think so. Though it’s very early right now to know much at all.

If they are still manufacturing vinyl these days then I'm sure CDs will be just fine for a long long time.



And hopefully, a little bit faster before CD plants stop manufacturing, pretty please....

Darn, is that really on the table? Do we have any idea when it may happen?
