Welcome to the Original Library Music Themes (v7)
« on: January 29, 2018, 04:18:49 PM »
The Original Library Music Themes (LMT) first opened to the public on 21 November, 2012. This visionary project was started by Retronic, who successfully ran it alone for some years before inviting a couple of others to help with admin and maintenance. Despite many ups and downs, LMT has been alive and active ever since. This is the Official Version 7, owned and operated by Retronic and the original LMT crew. Accept no substitutes!

Welcome aboard and enjoy!

So glad to be here.  I didn't know the date it started but it came on the back of ending the retro-teque blog which started in March 2010.   Those old rips are archaic now, in compressed 128kbps- we've come a long way and quality not quantity has become more appealing.
I'm looking forward to re-capturing some of the old spirit of 2012; but you can't go back and things have changed.   Back then, almost every post was a big deal because stuff was so rare.  Newer followers of the genre probably can't imagine this.  When I posted 'DWSLP 3392 - Mean and Dirty' people messaged me asking me to take it down and keep it rare.  People had a hunger to hear more.  They may have heard one track that had been sampled by someone and were dying to hear more of that LP.  The way we listen has changed as technology has advanced. It's easy now to download an entire back catalogue of many labels.  That was something I dreamt of in the early to mid 90's when you were lucky to own a few LPs.

Let's keep enjoying, talking about and sharing our passion for the music.  It's easy to grab everything and never even listen to most of it- over exposure can make us take it for granted. I'm looking forward to more library chat in the years to come.

I"m so glad we're all back where we belong. Believe it or not, I've missed you all.

I came back within hours of the Christmas Coup and immediately messaged Mr because 'suddenly' I was unable to raise any familiar faces at the previous spot. The news I received from Mr about our board was very shocking.

What a way to 'come home,' to find it wrecked and ransacked and none of your old keys will work in opening the door. That was my state of mind at the time - severe shock.

But we're all back, thanks to the technology to stay in touch.

I want to personally thank both Retronic and Mr for staying in touch with me and eventually sending me the "all clear" signal to return.

Anyways, thanks for letting me vent here. I really have missed the old folks and our wonderful board.

And I've also brought along some goodies which I'll be posting up very soon.
