Let's turn some of the negative energy into positive, lads and lasses.

I'll start:
We have been going through a period of unprecedented wealth, when it comes to score releases and their contents.
Many riches have even come out where we NEVER thought they'd see the light of day.
I, for one, enjoy the possibilities of what is just around the corner that we merely don't know about yet.

So thank you, label-type folks.
For having the passion and perseverance to follow your hearts and sharing the results of your talents with us.
A humble and heartfelt round of applause for all of you.

Honk Honk!! I'm forever grateful to the labels for the treasures they've brought to us.

My humble salute to La-La Land Records.

I am absolutely thrilled that the labels are sensitive to the fact that so many of us began supporting them with the Compact Disc format, and that our golden age of limited release soundtracks came to be during the era of the CD.

The continued support of the CD format to help complete established collections is really appreciated, when it may not be as hip or lucrative to do so.

The women and men who get these treasures in our hands are really, really appreciated.

Honk! OK... bit literal. But yes, definitely. As I just posted on JWFan, I ordered Lethal Weapon set (amongst others) to take of advantage of it being back in print and their 18% discount, but must have been minutes too early and so the discount wasn't applied, but having contacted them, they offered to send me a gift voucher for the equivalent of the discount. Notwithstanding their superb release, the excellent customer service is the creme patissiere on the gateau.

HONK!

I appreciate getting the raw tracks, even if the boutique labels are unable or unwilling to present them in a listenable format!

While I'm at it folks, honk twice in sympathy for those who can't/won't enjoy the embarrassment of riches.
There's room for them too.

I just made my first orders in almost ten years from LaLaLand, Intrada, and Varese earlier this week. Newer film music does nothing for me so I’ve kinda fallen off of the radar for the past decade. I thought the labels could especially use the support during the pandemic.

I don’t rebuy CDs I already have so I picked up:

1) Karate Kid
2) Cobra Kai
3) The River
4) Apollo 13
5) Dracula
6) Stanley and Iris
7) Family Plot

With LaLaLands new 18% off sale and Intrada’s Land Before Time release I may have to make a few more orders.

Honk. A really huge honk. A "people all around you stop to ask if you're ok, on account of the massive honk that just happened" kind of honk.

C&C is not my thing, but at least it allows us to produce real albums!

Honk! When I think of the number of scores that as a younger man I assumed I would never be able to hear without dialogue weighed against the number of such scores I can now enjoy any time I want, my gratitude for these labels is overwhelming. Thank you for making your love of film music your vocation as well, and allowing us to benefit from your hard work. -- Larry

The last 20 years have been a roller coaster of expansions, premieres and reissues and, good or bad, I'm looking forward to the next 20, so, from the bottom of my heart...honk.

The 1990s were the golden years. Bringing home albums by the armload for 50 cents apiece.

Those days are long gone. Never to be repeated!
