For those wondering, It should have looked this way... My copy is perfect booklet wise...
While I agree with you 10000000%, It's probably the printing facility who's to blame at this point...
I have never seen this happen before. Some copies are clear and some are blurry? I have seen a very small typo or date get transposed wrong, but I have never seen this before on a big scale. I will let everyone know how my Target copy looks like and sounds like.
This needs to be shown all over social media only way it will be brought to PW attention since they don’t answer emails. Poor quality control. Now what would Vinny say? He may not be involved in this aspect part but it reflects on him and his staff.
Mine is flawless packaging wise... Made in Mexico... Maybe some are made elsewhere?
One thing we could say is that Primary Wave also does business with companies lacking quality control... Qui se ressemble s'assemble...
I remember when PW posted a pic of their team with ONJ & John E. at the Santa Ynez ranch. No doubt, they promised that her catalog would get top-notch respect and care. One has to wonder if she fielded offers from other organizations or gave PW first dibs due to her previous association with Green Hill.
Quite detailed sleeve notes for Olivia.
She probably choose Primary Wave because they offer her the most % to give back to her Center & Foundation... I wonder how long her deal with Primary Wave is for...? I'd say 10 years at the very least...
If I may ask where did you copy ship from? Retailer?
Certainly. Amazon USA. I requested an exchange for the blurry copy they shipped me. The replacement is scheduled for delivery today, so hopefully I will receive a non-blurry booklet this time.
Primary Wave were buying up lots of artists’ catalogue around the time they signed the deal with Olivia. I wonder how much she was paid?
I would think PW owns her recorded works outright now. It’s their asset to use or sell to another entity in the future. Perhaps ONJ maintained a certain small percentage to maintain some sort of ongoing revenue stream. When PW bought Stevie Nicks’ songwriting catalog, I believe she maintained 15-20% equity.
Was yours Made in Mexico?
Did she sell her rights or just made a deal with them for a few years?
I think it’s just the CD that’s made in Mexico, isn’t it? Every US import CD I’ve bought in the last few years has ‘Made in Mexico’ stamped on the back of the packaging.
No idea. You know Olivia would never make details like that public.
Like you, it was stamped in the plastic of the packaging... Nowhere its says Made in anywhere on the packaging/booklet/CDs though like its usually the case...
PW seems to have a ton of cash. They just recently closed deals with Chris Isaak & Martina McBride as well. In Chris’ case, PW now has 50% ownership of his masters. The percentage in the McBride deal was not disclosed.
I know and, once more, I am talking out of my ass here, but I believe she was smart with her money... I doubt she sold the rights... She probably made a deal for 10 years, giving Primary Wave right to everything for that period, being promised they would reissue everything... After that, who knows... She had Chloé, she knew she might get grandkids at some point, so I am pretty sure there is something left for the future generations...
Again, pure speculation (and projection) on my part...
I don’t think we’ll ever know for sure. But you’re right, Olivia was savvy. The way she tied everything up in her final years was proof of that.
Yes, the list of artists they have is very impressive.
No disrespect edcw but Isaac and McBride are not exactly Kanye and Adele... I don't think they are in the same bracket $$$ ... I mean, it's good they (PW) buy around B's and C's to get momentum but the real money is with A's nowadays...
When the press release came out about the PW/ONJ deal, it was just announced as a “partnership” without specifics, no doubt per her direction.
Primary Wave Music Publishing ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH FOUR-TIME GRAMMY AWARD WINNING SINGER, SONGWRITER, & ACTRESS, OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN
I’m assuming the packaging was made in the US and the CD in Mexico. That seems to be the way nowadays.
