  1. Hi all. Craig Safan worked with us to release his latest non-score release, L.A. Ex. It's a love letter of sorts to his life in Los Angeles. If anybody is a fan of Craig's work, I highly recommend checking this out! With his third original music album, veteran film composer Craig Safan (TV's CHEERS, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, SON OF THE MORNING STAR, STAND AND DELIVER) explores his memories of growing up in Los Angeles with a musical celebration of life in the City of Angels. "I call this album L.A. Ex, which obviously is a play on the airport, but also because a lot of what I wrote are things that now exist only in my memory," Safan explains. Through a mix of digital samples and live musicians playing real instruments, Safan creates sonic expressions of sounds, feelings, and images of people, places, and things in Los Angeles and its environs that have resonated in remembrance for a lifetime. We have a few autographed CD's available. L.A. Ex - Music by Craig Safan CD order: https://bit.ly/3wIp2Hq Stream/Download: http://lnk.to/9WqeTIfj
  2. One of my faves. I pushed Cary for over a year to do this one. When we met with JP he was interested in doing it so glad it all worked out.
  3. I have done both for years. I was a contractor since 2014. I moved on a little bit ago to build NFN up as I wasn't giving it the attention it deserved.
  4. Omega Pictures is the licensor, we paid an advance and we are obligated to pay royalties. Confused by all this but all I'm going to say. Yep. Every release we put out is properly licensed and royalties are paid.
  5. Just because something isn't up digitally does not mean the license is up. Just saying.
  6. It's one I pushed to do for two years BEFORE a certain producer left the company. I like it that much.
  7. This batch won't disappoint. One last thing....Cary deserves a lot of props for doing the things some wouldn't. When I helped him plan out the releases we wanted to get expanded, we looked at what you all kept asking for. Sometimes, we overestimate interest, others it's a situation where we felt fans of a composer would love to see an expanded version of a score (say like John Carpenter's Village of the Damned). Cary taught me everything I know about licensing, publishing and everything else that I was responsible in managing, as an executive at Varese, taught me how a label runs day to day. Thank Cary Mansfield...he's a good man who truly cares about what fans want to buy.
  8. One never knows but I doubt they are interested in high res presentations. I'll be honest. I've been pushing for those types of releases for years. They just do not sell like they should for all the extra money that we need to retransfer and remaster (or possibly remix). Nobody is supporting these types of releases in the numbers they need. I've pushed for SACD hybrid discs so the high res crowd can have that and then the CD crowd can still buy and enjoy but I am always worried they won't get the love they need for the cost it takes to prep one of those discs.
  9. 100% correct. We fought to include that because of the chorus. Correction for the record. Townson didn't own Varese... ever (even though he tells the world he did). Chris Kuchler did until he sold the company to Cutting Edge and yes, the fees for choral pieces are super expensive. Townson also didn't write the checks. Chris did. One little tidbit....ever go to his website or read a presser about him? He writes a lot of that stuff about himself. Up until Cutting Edge bought the company, Varese did not have a publicist. So anytime you see something written about him, bet that he wrote it.
  10. Keep in mind we are working with minimal resources. Studios don't always allow us to change key art covers. The former producer at VS never saved anything, ANYTHING. If Bill decided to go with that as the cover it means we didn't have any alternatives to work from. In the end, Bill always does great work. I am happy we get to credit him on these releases (something the former producer refused to do for whatever bogus reasons he had).
  11. Proof positive why Mike does what he does. He's the best.
