I just wanted to say an official "Thank You" to David Lynch, Angelo Badalamenti & all of the other musicians, and to Dean Hurley for making the Twin Peaks Archive releases happen. This project has been a dream come true for me. Thanks also to the readers/posters over at the Dugpa forum, and of course the readers of this site.
I hope everyone has enjoyed my covers and the info & coverage I've given each release. Hopefully people will continue to use this site for its information- and I will still update sometimes, and possibly may cover whatever music project comes next from davidlynch.com. And of course there's always the hope that more Twin Peaks music may yet see the light of day. There is actually quite a few tracks that slipped through the cracks and didn't get a release. Check out my unreleased list for full details. So who knows, maybe there will be a "Bonus bundle" sometime?
Until then, thanks again, and there will always be music in the air.

To Beginnings... AND Endings. And the wisdom to know the difference.
Well- here we are at the end. And just as the actual world of TP ended by going back to the beginning with FWWM, the Archive has done the same by going back to the start of Angelo's music; the early demo tracks.
First off though, we get three variations of the FWWM track "Half Heart". These versions were actually recorded for the short-lived Lynch/Frost series "On The Air". They are great to hear, and interesting to see Angelo taking the FWWM track and adapting it to a different project.
And finally, we end the Archive with a collection of Angelo's demos. Ten from the series, and one from FWWM- the demo of Angelo singing "Questions In A World Of Blue". Understandably, these are in a little rougher shape, with a few even ending abruptly. But they are fascinating to hear, as they are the origin of all that was to follow. Especially interesting are the combinations of the "Love Theme" and "Falling".
Simply perfect way to end the most amazing soundtrack release(s) ever.
