    Default Are These Labels Still In Business

    Pilz, LaserLight, Delta?
    I could not find websites for any of them that had any real detail on their recordings?

    I have a collection of the PILZ Vienna Master Series that was sold at Best Buy stores in the US around 1996.

    I scoured various stores, and concluded there were 40 volumes, each containing two cds.

    These do not have the sleek gray design as pictured above. Instead, these came packaged in a cheap 2 CD case, and featured various stock photos of landscapes on the cover, with very simple text that is often hard to read. They had an amazing price of $$1.50 a piece (for 2 cds). I believe I bought all of them, and as of today can locate 38 out of the forty total volumes.

    I am trying to track down the other two volumes and may need help doing so. If anyone needs any help regarding these, please ask away.

    I have several of these, and I frequently find them in various clearance bins around town. Which ones are you missing?

    Default Pilz Catalog

    I've been in the process of scanning my CDs into itunes and I discovered a catalog inside one of the Pilz Vienna Master CDs. I've attached a jpg scan of all 3 pages of the catalog. Perhaps this will help in your quest to track down a complete set of their releases.

    Default full PILZ CD list

    Hi all

    I've had the entire (as far as I know) PILZ collection since the early 90s. I called the company to get every CD in the Vienna Masters Series collection, so according to their salespeople I have a full set.

    I have 158 total, plus I gave away 6 CDs: #101, 102, 109, 140, 182, and 216 as I already had those pieces on other CDs. So it looks like there are 164 in the full Vienna Masters Series set, which was also sold as Mozart's Revenge I, II, and III.

    There are a few numerical gaps in their series in the catalog list, so if these "gap CDs" exist then maybe there are 171 as 2old says. It's possible I'm missing a few, since their catalog at the time had some mistakes, and I was sent a few duplicates by mistake.

    Here is my list, which i keep in alpha by main composer. The number following is the PILZ number.
