Just thought I would share this:

A typical conversation from 2002, the year we started La-La Land Records:


ME: Hi, I'm calling from La-La Land Records.

THEY CHUCKLE

THEM: That's a cute name for a record company. Do they even MAKE records any more?


A typical conversation in 2017:


ME. Hi, I'm calling from La-La Land Records.

THEM: Oh, did you release the soundtrack to that movie? Is it on vinyl yet?

Whiny Bitches 2012 conversation:

Bitch: "LOL, you're just doing another re-issue of a re-issue?"

LLLR: "There's a thing called demand. We're supplying."



Whiny Bitches 2017 conversation:

Bitch: "LOL, another re-issue of a re-issue?"

LLLR: "We had our biggest sales year ever. You?"

La La Land - you guys have come so far in the past 10-15 years ... so many landmark moments! I would say you are a label to be reckoned with.

Le sigh.

You had to do some cutting to get an edge.

Now you are cutting edge.

How appropriate, for your 15th anniversary you're releasing a film from your founding year: Die Another Day (2002)

I just wanted to offer a few words to congratulate La-La Land on their grand finale batch for 2017!

Just a few years ago it was necessary to die another day to ride the ship of dreams, talk to the animals, and love the smell of napalm in the morning.

This means something!

It means we have been truly living in the best of times when it comes to soundtrack releases.

Chris

La La started with strong titles.. Zulu Dawn, From Beyond, which were definite pick ups, nice, later titles were just as good, I don't like to favour between quality labels/scores they all work hard. But, Friday the 13th box did ring a bell, wish-list. I still have a wish list, 2017 I got what I wanted, The Wild Wild West, Wonder Woman, they're perfect scores, year after year, Thanks, La La. Bravo.
