This volume had very little to do with me. Much of it is compiled by the "Black Eagle" ...Chik Ming Klaus (from the German branch of Iron Boat) who also contributed a great deal to the previous volume too. However obscure some of these movies seem, they are indeed Shaw and you may never hear them otherwise. Klaus is a great complement to my efforts. Not to mention, I give the utmost thanks to my Secret Santa for his RCA contributions. The future of Xihong Library has always been uncertain, but this year has been quite productive. Many secrets have been unveiled as of late. The big mystery is still the Japanese stuff. I had a "connect" out there, but haven't heard from him in some time. From what I remember... they're bad about releasing OSTs and they didn't keep library. I hope it's not lost forever.

As always, I couldn't have imagined a few years ago that it would get this big. I say that almost every time if you've been keeping up with the posts rather than the MF folder. What's exciting about it is that I don't even release a volume until I get tired of it. That's when the search begins for the next.
Here's my new list of requests. The more I hear, the less I know and given what I've heard even I feel like a newborn baby at this... at times. The Italians have fooled me many times over and each time I gain a bit more respect for them.
ARC ALSP 11017 - 1969 - La Conquista Di Luna [Luciano Michelini]
RCA SP 10052 - 197? - Cronache Dal Mondo [Lamartine]
RCA SP 10055 - 197? - Spontaneous [Alessandro Alessandroni]
RCA SP 10056 - 197? - Musica Arcaica [Antonio Riccardo Luciani]
RCA SP 10057 - 1975 - Speciale TG [Giacomo Dell'Orso]
RCA SP 10060 - 1975 - Fluid Trasparency [Henry Simpson And His Orchestra]
RCA SP 10068 - 1977 - Equinox [Gianni Marchetti]
BTW, still missing THAT track... you know... that "one."
-PS- I crack up every time I upload a new volume. Somebody out there is lightning fast in getting the files. That's a real fan I tell you.
Even though Xihong has been gone for what seems like an eternity already, they just couldn't let him be. Who would've guessed that he had so many treasures buried along with him.

I don't really want to get into how much work has gone into this, but if you want more then perhaps someone can fulfill these requests:
VA - RCA SP 10007 - Drammatici E Musiche Di Tensione Psicologica No4
VA - RCA SP 10008 - Drammatici E Musiche Di Tensione Psicologica No5
Romolo Grano - RCA SP 8004 - Ca Ira Il Fiume Della Rivolta
Teo Usuelli - RCA SP 8011 - La Suora Giovane
Antonio Riccardo Luciani - RCA SP 10056 - Musica Arcaica
Pierre Arvay - DWLP 3152 - Illustrations No7
Other than that, I'm still missing 1 cue. ONE... that is very important to me. Will I have it ever? I think it's on Musica Arcaica (an almost unheard of LP). The Grano stuff is certified hardcore Shaw Bros music I've actually seen the movie (doc).
The Growing Bin (for Chimenti)
Frankly Yes (for Dallas)
And a special thanks to...
Killa (for providing the shovels)
My Pal Doug (for bringing the lanterns)
Klaus (for digging Xihong up)
-PS- I've hidden an easter egg (or 2) somewhere in this comp. I wonder if you'll notice them.
