To all of you wonderful people who have written to me frustrated and exhausted having scoured the internet in search of the Cole Porter recordings I made for Midnight in Paris……

I was told by the producer that there will be a sound track album and that the Cole Porter songs will be on it. As far as I know, all of Woody’s films have a sound track album. Why it’s taking them so long to release it, I have no idea. The movie is still showing in theaters so maybe they’re waiting till it finishes this initial run before they release the sound track, although your guess is as good as mine.

Many of you have requested that I make the tracks available as down-loads on this sight. Well, the answer to that is simply that the recordings are the property of the film company and are not mine to use. I’m not allowed to do that.

So I guess all I can tell you is to hang in there and be patient and the album should be out soon. I am as frustrated as you are as I too would love a copy of the sound track!

Thank you all so much for your kind and encouraging remarks. It is a great honor to be part of this wonderful film and to know that it has touched so many people all over the world. Please keep in touch and stay tuned and I’ll let you all know as soon as I hear any thing.

My thanks and best wishes,

Conal Fowkes.

    My first experience of Cole Porter was actually in the theatre, while I was watching Midnight in Paris. I’m desperately waiting for the soundtrack with your renditions of those Cole Porter songs!

    FINALLY– the soundtrack to Midnight in Paris is available on iTunes!! I have yet to find a hard copy available and it appears that iTunes is the only option at this point (called Best Buy, Target, Wal Mart, etc) but it’s better than nothing. Highlights from Conal include “You’ve Got that Thing,” “You Do Something to Me”, “Barcarolle”, and of course the song that made the movie– “Let’s Do It”. Thank you, Mr. Fowkes, for this beautiful music!

    Just finally found your name in connection with those Cole Porter songs in Midnight in Paris — amazing stuff. Please keep us updated regarding the release of an album. In fact, do you have any news? I see that the DVD is coming out on 12/20 — maybe they are waiting for the DVD release before they distribute the soundtrack. Thanks for the music. It’s beautiful stuff.
