Well, you've read the notes, the notes were throbbing, and now it is time for you to post until the throbbing cows come home.

For those errand and truant people who may have missed the announcement, here's the new release - you can just go to the Kritzerland website to order if you so choose.


Kritzerland is proud to present a new limited edition soundtrack: 

THE BERLIN AFFAIR
Music Composed by Pino Donaggio

In 1974, director Liliana Cavani made the extremely controversial film The Night Porter, which divided critics and audiences all over the world.  A decade later, she was back with The Berlin Affair (based on the novel The Buddhist Cross by Junichiro Tanazaki), which, while not as controversial as The Night Porter, still explored hotbed topics of sexuality and homosexuality, race, jealousy, torment, deception, betrayal, all set in 1938 Berlin and involving a Nazi official, his wife, the daughter of the Japanese Ambassador, an art teacher, all of whose lives intertwine in ultimately destructive ways.  The cast was excellent, with German actress Gudrun Landgrebe elegant and beautiful as Louise, Kevin McNally as her husband, and alluring Mio Takaki as the object of many people’s desires.  The film was beautifully photographed by Dante Spinotti, who would go on to photograph Manhunter, Crimes Of The Heart, The Last Of The Mohicans, LA Confidential, and many others.   Capturing the seething passions, eroticism, intrigue, and atmosphere, Pino Donaggio’s score is as much a leading player in the film as any of its characters. 

Donaggio had been scoring films for over a decade, starting with Nicholas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now (1973), and continuing with his work for Brian De Palma (Carrie, Dressed To Kill, Body Double, Blow Out and others) as well as cult classics like Tourist Trap, The Howling, Piranha, Tex, Hercules, as well as providing quite a few scores for Cannon Films, of which The Berlin Affair was one.  The score for The Berlin Affair is Donaggio at the top of his game.  With its sinuous, swirling, hypnotic melodies capturing all the underlying complexities of the characters and the story, the music is like a symphonic fever dream in the film, and a wonderful and completely satisfying listening experience away from the film.  In fact, the music is mixed quite low in the film, and many cues are truncated, so it’s especially lovely to hear them complete and in gorgeous sound.  The themes are some of the most beautiful Donaggio has ever written.

The Berlin Affair was issued on LP, but this is its world premiere CD release.  The LP presented forty-two minutes of music, including a title song (inspired by but not used in the film), and several source/pastiche cues.  We present all those, plus all the cues not used on the album, and they are many.    The CD was mastered from the original Italian two-track mixed score tapes housed in the MGM vaults – they were in pristine condition and the recording is absolutely stunning.  The CD runs just about an hour and contains about eighteen minutes of never before released score cues.

This release is limited to 1000 copies only.  The price of the CD is $19.98, plus shipping.   Additionally, we are offering a special deal with the purchase of this release.  Go to the item page and click on the link to find out about it.

CD will ship the first week of July – however, never fear, preorders placed directly through Kritzerland usually ship one to five weeks earlier (we’ve been averaging four weeks early).   To place an order, see the cover, or hear audio samples, just visit www.kritzerland.com.

So...

I got a call asking me if I could cover a shift at the restaurant tonight, and since I was free, well...

I started at 4:00pm.

I clocked out at 2:00am.

OY!

It was actually a good shift. We were busy, but it never got crazy-busy.  There was also a private party in the Garden Room, and the head of the organization gave each of the waitstaff - myself included - an additional cash tip on top of the gratuity on the bill.

And 24 hours from now, I will be deep in the bowels of the main branch of the New York Public Library. I will be participating in a "game" with 499 other participants called Find The Future. It should be quite an interesting time. The main goal of the event is to write a book that will become part of the NYPL's permanent collection.

And now, I'm going to grab a few hours of sleep. I have a few things to take care of in the morning - well, later this morning - and then I'll take a nice nap in the afternoon, and then head down to the NYPL at 6:30. -And 12 hours later... Well, we'll see.

Goodnight.

My time stamp says I posted at 3:52am. I wasn't up then. The clock is off but I'm not going to try to change it. I posted the first time around 5:15am.

But, yes, it is early

Good morning, all! I will be out of here shortly to head down to Toyland. I've got to finish this project and I find I accomplish more out of the apartment than in it with too many distractions. I've got a couple of things to write out, and I'll finish them faster there. I can leave some things until Sunday, but I'd like our MD Brent to have all the choral things tomorrow before our 1 pm meeting. My publisher sent me pdf files of the band parts for the Appalachian Carols, so I've downloaded them and printed them out. That's out of my hair.

We've got twelve fantastic actors who all play fiddle, guitar, banjo and bass for next week's rehearsals. Leenya Rideout's a friend of DR FJL and Skip, and she's currently in THE WAR HORSE, which I really want to see. David Lutken toured as Will Rogers in the WILL ROGERS FOLLIES and I've been a fan since I saw him as the Balladeer in the City Opera's stunning production of PAUL BUNYAN. Jarrod Emick, who was wonderful as Joe Hardy in the DAMN YANKEES revival, is playing the father of the family having the Christmas party. I am getting very excited about this piece. And that takes care of my next seven days!

DR JRand60, I will try to get your CDs into the post this afternoon!

DR Laura, I agree; when I was going through my several health problems of the past seven years and I was too depressed to do much, Guy Haines was the one singer I listened to regularly to pick me up. We need a new Guy Haines album.

DR Jennifer, I think your allergies are out of control and you need to see your doctor for meds and tests. I hope that will alleviate your problems.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Safe Travel Vibes for DRs vixmom and the vixter! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greetings from Toyland! It was an easy trip down, except for these fools who get onto a subway car and plant their asses in the doorway, making it difficult for anyone to get aboard to to depart. It's bad enough when the train isn't too crowded but it's insane during rush hours.

First item this morning: emails about the EILEEN scores,then a vocal score for "It's the Good Old Mountain Dew."
Before we roll we'll take another bowl of the good old mountain dew!

I'm up, I've announced (had everything ready to go, opened a new window to prep Facebook, and Safari crashed, which happens about six times a day now - some Flash player error message that I've reported about a 100 times and they obviously don't seem to be able to fix it).  So, had to prep everything all over again.

Not an excuse by any means, but I think they plant themselves in the doorway because if they politely step in, they'll likely lose the door to lean on for the rest of their trip - not an excuse, but I think that's the reason.
