Robert Townson has just confirmed via facebook that the next Varese Club batch Titles will come out in Feb with 3 titles. This will be 'his' Final batch.

UPDATE: There was another facebook update from Robert where he listed his entire Varese produced catalogue. Amongst the list he has revealed the following un-announced titles for his final batch:

VCL 0219 1191 : The Deluxe Edition
VCL 0219 1192 : The Deluxe Edition
VCL 0219 1193 : ???


Robert Townson:

I am finishing up my final batch of Varese CD Club titles. Three titles that will be announced in February. I created this series in 1988 to allow me to present favorite scores by favorite composers, custom produced for the aficionados out there ... the soundtrack collectors who need unreleased film scores like they need air. These are the scores that, for the most part, are hard to believe they exist ... even to this day! These are scores that went decades as titles we only dreamed of and then, one day, all of a sudden, there was The Goonies, or Lonely Are The Brave, or The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Die Hard, The Karate Kid or Spartacus! Most recently there was Dracula: The Deluxe Edition. What are your favorite titles of favorite CD Club memories?

Didn't DMD say there would still be future Club releases, just not produced by Townson (I think)?

"I am finishing up my final batch of Varese CD Club titles"

Yup, not the final, but the last batch that Robert Townson's worked on, & what an impressive list!

Anyway, three Club titles, that's not bad news smile

I've got 26 of these releases (11,8%). Here's hoping that Air Force One will be included in RT's final batch. smile

I know there's not a lot of characters, but the thread title here is misleading at best and factually incorrect at worst. There are some important qualifiers missing to the "final." It has already been said that the Club will continue without Townson.

If my calculations are correct, I own 43 Club titles.
+ I own re-issue of Scream, Mimic...
+ I definitely will buy bit more titles from last batches.

I’m hoping for my usual request of a Deluxe Edition of Rozsa’s Eye of the Needle. Looking at that list of all the past Club titles, I find there are so many titles there, some of which I hope one of the other labels could get back in print at some point (particularly Hawaii and Story of Ruth).

Fantastic list and accomplishment.Thanks for all of them!
They are all great!

Delerue: The London Sessions (with the bonus tracks)

I remember that for the last lot I poured cold water on the idea that it could be Williams Dracula (no tapes, get real & move on), so with that in mind...I'd have to say there's no way that one of them could possibly be Goldsmith's complete Flint scores, no way on this earth smile

Thirded on "Seaquest", but I am looking for volumes like LLLR records has done with various series. I doubt Varese is going to do that.

I think we can hope for three really outstanding titles.
Maybe something from this list of potential complete scores releases:

Barry - Year Of The Comet (rejected score)
Conti - Blood In, Bood Out
Goldsmith - Air-Force-One
Goldsmith - Medicine Man
Goldsmith - Hollow Man
Goldsmith - The Public Eye (rejected score)
Goldsmith - U.S. Marshals
Newman - Airport
Rozsa - Fedora
Young - The Fly II
Williams - Presumed Innocence

Let's be positively surprised by Robert Townson one last time ...
