I guess the important thing, Rijko, is that it is in the works or on hold. We V-M fans do have long memories!

Good questions, Saqibbakht. If she's not still with Sony I don't blame her after the Choreography CD was to be released in the USA in spring 2005, then went the way of Subject to Change, never reaching Stateside stores. And what about the autobiography we've waited for mucho years? :?:

Remember, though, when Vanessa gets credit as a songwriter, it's as "Mae". So maybe Sony had that in mind. I don't think I've ever seen her filed under V in any store. It can be almost as confusing for them as whether to file her in the classical or popular section! :p

Their musical styles almost intersected at least once. Compare their treatments of Vivaldi in bond's Viva! and our Vanessa's Winter I. ???

It's interesting to me that in any quotes I've seen from bond or Vanessa, they have never referred to one another. Perhaps naively, I expected to see bond listing her among influences and inspirations. Also it seems they never opened a show for her when they were on their way up. Is there a feud?

Would be so much more appropriate for it to be released in the month of Mae than in June. Besides, none of us can wait any longer! :;):

Yes, Atreides, EMI was not an aggressive distributor for Vanessa. I read here that her Best of... CD came out in September '02. I didn't know it existed until I found it in a Chicago record store a few days before that Christmas. I haven't seen it in any other stores since that I can recall (the on...

Thanks Arioch. Sounds like a great idea, I'm off to check it out now! Sounds like another not-available-in-US item. :bbutbut:

I've had her autobiography on my amazon and aol shopping wish lists for about a year, and what it says now is "out of print" but it also says something about an April 2004 release. Sounds a lot like now, doesn't it? Are we being cruelly teased?

:) Just what I wanted to hear, Rijko Ebens! Reminds me of what Vanessa promised, "This is just the beginning". If I haven't missed something, she hasn't had anything new to come out since The Art of War. But then hearing here that she's being stalked, I can see why she may be taking a low...

I'm a Statesider and a V-M'er from way back in April '99, as I discovered her by chance on the Saturday morning CBS news performance of Bach Street Prelude. I videotaped all I could of it, tried to order the video from CBS (they said that the V-M portion of the show was unavailable!), and it wasn't...
