Shame no-one makes an arranger specifically for the US market (and UK, I guess ).

Enough with the shlager! Where's the factory zydeco styles? Where's my bank FULL of Motown? Where's the Philly sound? Where's all the second-line?

I think that, if they styled US arrangers as carefully as they style middle eastern and Balkan ones, they would sell a BOATLOAD more of them over here. They can say 'well there's no market for them over here' all they want, but if they keep voicing and styling them for Europe, what do they bloody well expect?
