Welcome to Dreaming Of You: A Tribute To Selena. After a four month absence, I am happy to bring this site back. Here is a continuing tribute to the life and accomplishments of the Mexican-American artist who has made the most impact on both side of the borders. Fans will be able to find a wealth of information when the site is completely re-built: original biographies, CD information, information on the movie and musical, Selena lyrics in English and Spanish, and a tour of Corpus Christi, TX!
Check back throughout the months of October and November for these exciting updates, which are currently under production!
October 12, 2002 - 20 Years Of Music section is nearing it's completion, and the Sneak Preview has been sent out to all newsletter subscribers!! It will open at the site Monday Evening! Check back for that!
The first three sections of the Selena Collector's Guide are now open. I still need to find the data of 2 sections to complete it. Will keep you updated on that. I also posted the Selena musical section, however I will need to update it with the information of the Hollywood version of the musical. SELENA MAGAZINE GALLERY is open for viewing thumbnails, but the individual magazine pages are not updated so when viewing them do NOT use the individual links as they are no longer valid. USE THE "Back" button on your browser to return to the Gallery until they are updated. Thanks!

October 11, 2002 - Quintanilla Family will be on The Early Show next week...
EXCELLENT NEWS! Sure to boost sales for Selena, The Quintanilla Family will on The Early Show next week to discuss the re-release of Selena's albums and "Ones". Check it out when it airs on October 16, 2002 @ 7:00 AM EST (Check Local Listings) You can check out more information on this by clicking here!
October 10, 2002 - "Ones" is the HotShot Debut on Billboard Charts...
Billboard Charts were released today, and Selena's "Ones" debuted at #4 making it this weeks Hot Shot Debut Album on the Billboard Latin 50 Charts. The album was unable to surpass 3 other albums, including one from Enrique Iglesias, but is still an improvement over the debut of last years' Live: The Last Concert which landed on the #6 spot. We'll see what the album does next week on the chart, to see if there is a jump in sales or not.
October 7, 2002 - Selena in new Furia Musical...
Over at the Selena Chat Board, a member has posted that the new Furia Musical Magazine contains a tidbit of Selena in a segment with different artists. Apparently there is a picture of Selena in her famous Bikini from her Acapulco Photo Shoot, and there is a caption that says Sensual Y Caliente (Sensual and Hot!). This sounds a little familiar to a magazine in my collection, but it may be new. Any information? Please email me.
October 4, 2002 - AOL KEYWORD: SELENA...
For this who have the AOL service, you can type in "Selena" and be taken to a special AOL Remembers Selena section which has different features. These include: short bio which names her as the biggest female Latin revelation, a section to let fans say what Selena may be doing today had she lived, Photo Gallery, and a more indepth biography.
Check this out today AOL users!
Original Selena CDs no longer in print...
Also of some interest to Selena fans is the fact that EMI is no longer shipping out the original versions of Selena's albums due to the just released re-issues. There is no word yet as to when they will be shipped again, it depends on how long it takes for the limited edition reissues to sell out. Any copies of the original versions of the CDs in store are the ones that were left over from the very last shipment of Selena CDs before the re-issues were shipped. Some retailers were also asked to send back unsold copies of the original back to EMD (EMI Distribution)
Do You Remember...
- October 1, 2000 - Selena's "The Early Years" and more CDs scheduled for release...
For those few who have not heard yet, Q-Productions is releasing a five volume series of CD's entitled "Selena: The Early Years". The series consists of 5 volumes with one being released every 9 months. Also, two sing-along CDs are in the works. UPDATE: Only one volume has been released in February 2001, the second volume is now possibly due by Christmas. Only one volume of the sing a long CDs have been released. The 2nd Volume was probably canceled altogether.
October 3, 2002- "Con Tanto Amor" enters top 10 at Univision top 10 List, help her move up!...

It is still possible to move Selena up on the list if you go to the actual site and click the title. The title with the most clicks will be taken to number one so go now! :)

October 2, 2002 - More information on yesterday's Selena Foundation Donations...

October 1, 2002 - The Selena Foundation donates $10,000 to University...
Also making news today is the fact that The Selena Foundation has made another donation to Texas A & M University in Corpus Christi TX, in the amount of $10,000. No other information is available yet, but on the Q-Productions site their is a pic of Edward James Olmos with the headline. It will be interesting to see what he has to do with it. Go to www.q-productions.com for updates, or come back here since I will post the info as soon as they do.
EMI Latin launches last release of '20 Years Of Music' celebration...
Today, EMI Latin will release "Ones", the last of the releases that commemorates the 20th Anniversary of Selena's professional career. EMI opted to go with two versions of this CD. One will be a regular CD, with 20 tracks. The other, will have the same 20 tracks but will also double as a DVD which will contain "All My Hits - Todos Mis Exitos on video" (IN DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 SURROUND SOUND) and the 1995 documentary "Selena Remembered" hosted by Edward James Olmos. In addition, this release features a great new ballad medley remix of three classics: Amor Prohibido/Si Una Vez/Como La Flor, called Con Tanto Amor (With Much Love). You can check this song out in it's entirety over at www.univision.com , use Uniclave: SELENA.
UPDATE: I just picked up my copy of "Ones" on CD/DVD, and I am sorry to say that "Selena Remembered" is NOT on the release. I do not have any information as to why not. Aside from the 13 music videos, a small but nice Selena picture gallery and a 20 Years Of Music Promo is included. I can tell you that if you have a Surround Sound system that can decode Dolby Digital sound, you are in for a real treat, because the sound on the music videos is incredible!
RUMOR: It is being said already that EMI is planning to release "Selena Remembered" as a separate DVD sometime in the future. I hope that this is true. More info as the site gets it!
Another possible release date for Selena y Sus Inicios Vol. II...
According to a Selena fan who went to Corpus Christi, Mr Quintanilla let her in knowing that Selena y Sus Inicios Vol. II has a targeted release date sometime in December of 2002. This is just the latest date in this long delayed CD (for those keeping track Volume III of the series was due last August).
My guess is that Q-Productions shuffled the releases around to accommodate the release of EMI's 20 Years Of Music series. It makes sense, but it still doesn't make waiting any easier. Oh, well. :)
No word yet on the DVD and VHS of Live, The Last Concert. Last anyone heard any information, it was confirmed that it was complete but that Q-Productions was still looking for a distributor (EMI is apparently NOT handling this release, it's Q-Productions on it's own)
Thanks for coming, before you go...
