Title: Welcome to the Original Library Music Themes (v7)
Post by: stackjackson 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.

Hello!

I'm a little bit confused. Are there actually two different versions of LMT online? I see some members posting on both sides.

Anyway, good to see that there is still such a great community  collecting library music.

Greetings,

Caligula

That's sad and the whole story sounds really creepy. I just wondered why "mr" invites me to a new forum, but is still active as "mister" at the old board. But now, a closer look at "mister's" profile pic there, debunked the account as fake. I hope you don't have too much trouble with this kind of bs and thanks again for your continuous work over all this years.

For the love of music,

Caligula

Hello Caligula, nice to see you again!


About the lost LMTv6, the whole group that has been banned, still have their account there.
I would like to delete my account, and others probably too, but it's not possible cause the site is not reachable anymore for us.

Hello again Mr! It's dreamfortress, the one who made the Library Music Disc 2 list. I don't know how much I'll end up posting here but I thought I'd let you know I'm here. Will probably put up a thread of some sort for my own library playlists in the DIY Compilations board.

And of course, hello to everyone else. I'm a big library fan, particularly of the 80s period; became obsessed thanks to the Sonne Immage youtube channel along with some Discogs searching, etc.

Hey, Zach, I'm gladdaseeya once again! Are you unable to get in touch w PL since being locked out of LMT 6?

Speaking of which, even after stealing LMT 6 and changing the locks, that Mouthbreathing Moderator still feels the need to snoop around Retronic's site, jiggling all the doorknobs, searching for something else to steal. After all the harm it's caused, it's still feeling the paranoia and need to spy on the true Citizens of LMT "just in case." 

Years after the fact, Mouthbreather will most likely still be checking the rear view mirror, always with a feeling of worried dread. I guess when a person makes a lifestyle out of ripping people off, constantly looking over one's shoulder becomes a necessary survival skill.

That's no way to live.

That's one thing I've always enjoyed about LMT: the feeling of being in a safe community. Somehow, I get the feeling if this were a real village someplace, nobody would feel the need to lock their doors. How can that be a bad thing?
Title: Re: Welcome to the Original Library Music Themes (v7)
Post by: Mr on February 06, 2018, 01:27:44 AM
Welcome, Dreamfortress! Glad to see you made it.
For those not aware, the "Disc 2" list he's talking about is a very nice 'best of' list for synth-y 80's library music he did over at RYM. Check it out (https://rateyourmusic.com/list/dreamfortress/rym-ultimate-box-set-library-music-disc-2-the-80s_electronics/)!

Thanks to Mr for inviting me again.

Thanks for making this happen!

I discovered this only recently after a fellow Soulseek friend PM'd me about it. This was a few months ago, so it was the previous forum (the one with the drama, apparently).

It was excited to join, but then it got "hacked" and I was really bummed (and puzzled).

After reading about the past problems, I glad this new forum exists. Thanks again, and I'm glad to be here!  8] :)

Also, one blogger user commented on my third blog asking if any of you have this album (except I just noticed that comment was deleted by the user himself):

Title: Hello!
Post by: JimAth on March 08, 2018, 04:09:56 PM
Being introduced to this forum by Mr himself, what can I say other than I found a treasure on-line! So, let me introduce myself...

My name is JimAth, but you can just call me Takis. I'm 21 years old, an Athens resident, and avid fan of library music!

When I was like 11, exactly 10 years ago, I began listening to soundtracks (I grew up with classical and the greek folk traditional music), and whenever I was watching Spongebob I really wanted to have the background music. So, I downloaded a torrent with the "Production Music" (still then, I couldn't exactly understand what was it all about) and submerged into the obscure world of the libraries. Everyday back then, I was googlin' and googlin' for albums (we had the dreaded Rapidshare back then -remember?), downloading and filling up my hard drive. 10 years ago, Facebook was still in its infancy, and blogs and forums were the place-to-be if you were on the search for obscure genres of music. Indeed, the blog community back then was very active and with exceptional quality (remember the Crime Lounge, a guy who used to upload albums but I just can't remember his name). Endless hours on the search...

Through library music, when I was around 15, I discovered jazz (even though I wouldn't fully appreciate it back then, as I do now), other genres and learned to distinguish between composers, eras and styles. When I entered University and had some money from student jobs, I started building my CD and Vinyl collection. I have around 4-5 CDs of Production music as of now (I mostly bought soundtracks and classical at first), but in the future I will enrich it with more findings.
Well, that's my -musical- life story! I hope we can have a very nice time here!


Greetings,

Takis

As an avid follower of library music for nearly 40 years, this continuing forum is unquestionably one of life's happy pleasures. A sincere THANK YOU! to those who are responsible for it and to those who so generously give of their time and resources. Back in the pre-Web era, one could have never dreamed it possible such a community of kindred spirits would ever exist.

Somehow missed the welcome thread until now.

Hi Everyone, I Fell in love with library music after hearing Mike Ratledge's - Push Button on the tv show button moon back in the 80s.

It took quite a few years of digging and research to find out what music that was, then it was like discovering a whole new world. Library music of the 70's and 80's is pretty much all I ever listen to now.

This forum is just amazing, so pleased I discovered it.

Cheers!

congratulations  for this wonderful  blog
I'm a bit confused because I can not understand the difference between the term "not library  " and "library music" For example, I just downloaded and listened to the album shared by Greta in the Libray Music sector - CML 126 - Don Powell, Adolfo Waitzman , Franco Campanino - Theme With Variations - Sentimental Modern (1977): it contains some excerpts from soundtracks  from the movies  black emanuelle n2 / the climber  la ragazza dalla pelle di corallo  that according to my opinion should be included in the sector " not library "
Please explain the difference to me

Post by: Retronic on June 23, 2018, 03:30:29 PM
Many library records were used in films but as opposed to producers paying a composer to write music especially for the film.  Lots of tracks are well known (ie, The Gonk used in Dawn of the Dead) but it is a library track first and foremost.

Many library records were used in films but as opposed to producers paying a composer to write music especially for the film.
In Italy, the opposite is often the case too, like with this CAM LP; already composed scores intended for specific films or TV series saw reuse as library cues. This is pretty much never mentioned on the releases themselves, however.

What 'makes' this "library music" in this case is the fact that it was released as part of a series of library releases, see the sleeve for instance:
(https://i.imgur.com/cOYznMA.png)
Also, most of these cues were never released anywhere else.

Greetings my friends. My name is Gabe and similar to a few other "welcomes" that I've read here, I too have also recently discovered this amazing world of library music. I do thank you for allowing me to join, and yet while I'm still quite new to this area of music, I'm also very eager to learn about it. I can tell you my only experience thus far comes from a YouTube channel referencing a few themes from the Tim & Eric show. This may or may not have been a good thing.  :)

Many thanks to you all, Gabe.

I'm interested in how newer members are getting into library music- share your tales.... :-)

It probably started around 10 years ago for me. I think I heard Justin Spear and Stuart Maconie playing and discussing it a few times on 6 music. I bought some compilation and reissue CDs, I went to see KPM All Stars perform live twice (I recorded one show - I should have it somewhere), I bought the Fuel book.

But then, for some unknown reason, my interest petered out.

Cut to last year when I found myself with time on my hands to listen to some music while I was working in the office. I listened to some old British Psych broadcasts on mixcloud and, when I ran out of them, I remembered someone had told me many years before about the OST Show on Resonance FM, so I started listening and was hooked again. Went through the three year archive three times. By this time I had relocated to Singapore and, for a tiny country, it has more than it's fair share of record shops but, when asking about library music, I was met with a blank look. Until I found a guy selling records in a disused factory unit. It turned out a large part of his stock came from broadcasting companies. Bingo! Several shelves packed with library records. The majority are De Wolfe but there are some other labels.

So, my library collection has started. Having said that, I'm not planning to collect as such, just buy the music I like and, if I buy anything I don't like, I will move it on.

And that's my story  :)

For me, I always knew of library music I guess you could say, I just wasn't fully aware of it or how to obtain it. I knew there was this awesome music that I'd hear on commercials or videos, but I just couldn't buy in the local record store, and nobody behind the counter ever knew what I was trying to explain or ask about. For the most part, it was simply a quest that I never fully explored because availability was so limited at the time. Within the last few years though, I guess the itch happened again where I was almost entranced by this music I could never find. Fast forward and I'm glued to the set watching a series called Tim & Eric Awesome Show, and also Dr. Steve Brule, both of which are loaded heavily with library music. I then started watching YouTube videos with information on tracks used in the show which was quite overwhelming, but it was great to finally learn something about this mysterious music that has eluded me all these years. Those steps lead me here, as a complete novice, but still very much entranced.

Always had an eclectic taste in music, collected soundtracks and rarities over the years, got record collector book, and the murky depths of the back pages mentioning library music.
started on KPM, Chappell and others, found such a depth and contrast, drives the wife round the bend.
but then again I do like very extreme music too, grindcore, metal, jazz, chiptune and the like.
