"The Mother of all sequels." - Bruce Campbell
Released November 29th, 1999
Okay, so maybe Bruce was referring to Evil Dead 2. I'm sure if he knew that this musicdisk existed, he'd say the same thing. Stage 9 is a musicdisk that came out in January 1998. It featured 15 modules from various artists in the PC music scene. It was a pretty big success within the scene. However, few people outside the scene ever got to hear it. This sequel hopes to change all that.
The facts about Return to Stage 9:
It features 62 songs from 37 artists.
These 62 songs = 4 hours, 58 minutes and 47 seconds.
Compiling this project took over 1.5 years.
It is the biggest musicdisk ever assembled.
Like Stage 9, Return to Stage 9 was organized entirely by myself. I have no clue how much total time I've spent on this project. I just know it's been a long ride. With as much time as I have invested, it's my goal to make this musicdisk extremely successful. I can't do it all myself. You need to give me a hand. YOU, yes YOU! Download the music. If you enjoy it, tell as many friends about it as you can. Word of mouth is a powerful tool. Over the years, I've learned something. Great music can be found anywhere, and in any genre of music. It's out there for the finding. There's nothing as cool as finding new music that you absolutely love. There are a few gems in this musicdisk, see if you can find them. Please email the artists. They've spent many hours composing music, feedback is a great way to let them know that effort wasn't in vain.
All of the music is provided absolutely free for your listening pleasure. Each individual piece of music is property of its respective author. Use of this music on cd compilations, CD-ROMs, etc is strictly forbidden. If you do wish to use any of this music for financial gain, you MUST first contact the author(s). Okay, enough of the legal stuff.
I'd like to encourage you to support the artists if you enjoy the music. Several of these artists have CDs available to purchase right now. It's really quite amazing how many great musicians are without any income from the music they work so hard to produce. If you represent a record label or a game company, I can assure you that most if not all of these artists would be happy to discuss any musical needs you might have.
In closing, I'd just like to thank a few people. I must thank each and every one of the artists that contributed to this project. It wouldn't exist without you. Thanks for being so patient with me. Thank you to everyone who downloads the music and then tells others. Thanks to Sirrus for designing the webpage. Thanks to Zsazs for hosting it. Thanks to Bruce Campbell for endorsing it (yeah don't I wish :). Enjoy the music.
