Bottom line, let's hope November is accurate, even if Quartet doesn't want to confirm or deny it.

In this Spanish interview from July José Benitez stated that he plans to release the ENDLESS NIGHT CD at the end of this year:

So maybe it will come at Christmas time.

I was referring to confirming or denying the November 2020 date. They posted at the start of this thread that it would be released in Feb/March 2020. They could have posted again to clarify while we all scratched our heads about where the November date originated.

Maybe this thread is exactly why labels don't usually pre-announce anything.

It will be ready whenever it will be ready.

Why? Because someone is liable to start a rumor when the label fails to communicate? They could have easily posted info about a delay here or on their website.

Besides, don't you want to be ready to be the first poster with some insulting criticism? razz

Quartet 16th Oct 2019
Endless Night was recorded on September 9-11, with Fernando as conductor, of course, and sounds great! But it will not be released until February/ March 2020. Fernando is really busy right now and he cannot supervise the mixes until the end of this year.

Going by what was done with ‘The Bride Wore Black,’ I can imagine that the orchestral recording of ‘Endless Night’ is indeed great. But presuming the Moog (or whatever instrument is being used for the electronics) is being recorded separately, I can now imagine conductor, engineer and producer etc sitting with their headphones on and painfully looking at each other over a mixing board wondering how damn loud we’re gonna have this electronic thing ‘intruding’ on our wonderfully recorded orchestra! Ha.

What works in the film may not make for the best listening experience. Given that it’s not a particularly long score, perhaps it’s a case of including versions with, and without the Moog. [Personally I think John Barry made the right choice in banishing the blaring harmonica on ‘Joe Buck Rides Again’ when re-recording Midnight Cowboy for album, but ideally I’d like both versions.] It’s going to make for an interesting album whatever. No rush, we know it’s in the works, and the waiting and expectancy is all part of the fun.

I’d look forward to a Stromberg version of ‘On Dangerous Ground’ very much. And as for a possible future Herrmann from Quartet, I still think a brand new wide re-recording of ‘Beneath The Twelve Mile Reef’ would be fantastic.

Steve, I know you included all the relevant info, but for anyone who might misread the end of the Quartet quote, it was referring to the end of last year (2019), with an expected release for spring 2020. The quote is not a new update about the release date.

Surely the fact that I've put 2019 at the head of the quote clearly means that it's not an update. I put the quote there just to make sense of my lighthearted image of minds pondering away in the mixing room over something I bet they really have been debating. Nothing more than that. This thread has been active in the last few days, I haven't bumped it up from long ago just to add my silly comment...

Steve, Steve, Steve. As I said, I recognized you included the relevant info. Did you misread that part? Huh, didja?
But for folks skimming thru posts, they might miss it by the end of the quote. I've done that myself.
I would have added "2019" with square brackets after "end of this year."

has anyone just emailed them directly within say the last month and asked them directly?

You try that.

Huh. I've been going door-to-door in my neighborhood and nobody knew. Might as well try that email thingy.

IIRC, THE BRIDE WORE BLACK was only announced shortly before its street date. I think that most of us didn't even know it was coming, although I'm sure that some of this site's "insiders" were aware of it and were keeping mum.

I'm really hoping that ENDLESS NIGHT will be released before the end of this year. I was initially expecting it last year in December, but that didn't happen.

To me, this has felt like an endless wait.
