Someone needs to be more specific in his/her thread titles. wink

I can't remember which label released what. Do you guys actually keep spreadsheets with these kinds of details?


I do refer to Quartet Records in my post. There is a capital Q in my header, so I'm referring neither to string quartets nor jazz quartets.

And, yes, I do keep album info inside Excel spreadsheets. smile


I capitalize all words, except for prepositions and articles, in thread titles, so capitalizing the words you cited is not enough of a distinction for me.

As for spreadsheets, I have more important things to do, and CD labels are meaningless, because I can't see the label spinning while the disc is playing.

10?? I have only one, Mona Lisa/Castaway by Kamen/Zimmer/Myers.

You should get Silvestri's THE DELTA FORCE and SUMMER SCHOOL/CRITICAL CONDITION. They're right up your alley.

Watching stickers spin around on vinyl records while rotating on turntables - is this one of the more important items to occupy time instead of storing data?

When I contemplate album labels, adhesives don't enter my thoughts. smile
Rather, a record label's production team can endorse specific musical styles and their vintage. Quartet can do '60s & '70; they can do Italian as well as Hollywood. A label can represent certain aesthetics, so when Quartet makes announcements about new albums, chances are something could intrigue you - and it won't be whatever it might look like when it's inside a disc tray.

Quite wide ranging Top 10s listed here.
Very varied titles.
Quartet cast their nets wide and seem to attract many diverse soundtrack fans with their eclectic titles.
I look forward to new announcements from them, just as much as Intrada, LLL, Varese and Music Box.

'The light at the edge of the World' and 'Perversione / Stress' could have been 11 and 12.

A particular favo(u)rite...
