    I was a Project Consultant on this release. It's my first real credit, and first paying gig in the field, actually. If anyone was wondering why I stopped posting as frequently this spring, this is why. Mike and I worked our butts off to make this set as good as it could possibly be. And yes, one thing I did was proof-read the (many!) liner notes

    Jim Titus all along prepared BOTH Sorcerer's Stone AND Philisopher's Stone covers for the set. Mike originally wanted to use Philiosopher's for the set, but WB wanted to use Sorcerer's, so that was that. His plan was always to distribute the Philosopher's Stones covers digitally after the announcement, so here they are! Thank you Jim Titus, and thank you Mike Matessino!

    This is so fantastic. Really glad we can finally stop worrying about when this will be released and can now move on to worrying about the release itself. Here's my crack at "fixing it" as you say, bearing in mind that I am (unfortunately) no Stefan Cosman: I also tried my hand at tweaking the other 2 covers as well.

    Uh...what the heck?!? Just saw this on the Entertainment Weekly site!! https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/17/john-williams-new-music-disney-star-wars-theme-parks/

    One thing I should point out is that this set features music you've NEVER heard before. For all three scores! Even if you're intimately familiar with the albums and the music in the films themselves, there is music here you've NEVER heard before. For all three scores! Even if you downloaded the recording session leaks, there is music here you've NEVER heard before. For all three scores! AND ALSO even if you downloaded sheet music leaks, there is music here you NEVER knew existed before. For all three scores!

    If anybody out there is planning to illegally bootleg this release instead of paying the people who worked really hard to make it happen, myself included, please keep those intentions to yourself instead of posting them in a public forum in a thread I created for this release, a release I know I worked very, very hard on to make happen. Thank you.

    Congratulations to Jay and all others involved, and everyone who was desperately hoping for this release. These specialty labels are doing wonderful things for this art form and its fans.

    If Potter isn't announced on Friday, I'm going to buy 30 bags of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Jelly Beans, go through them each assiduously picking out just the vomit flavored beans, and mail them to La-La Land Records

    Last one for good measure.

    And the worrying begins! Trust me, There is nothing on the Azkaban OST that is not on the new set. There is no Williams score in the film that is not on the new set. It's all good, man!

    So, do we now all agree that 2018 "is for the books"? 😉

    Imagine the look of confusion on my face when I looked in the program for the Williams concert at Royal Albert Hall in London!

    Part 2 of Tim and Mike's talk is now up! http://www.jwfan.com/?p=11794 I got the chance to listen to this already and it's just as good as their Dracula conversation! Some of the stories told include: The full explanation the HP set being included in the London concert program booklet Williams composing the original teaser music as a reaction to the book, not the film. The great story of what was used to record and edit HP1 in 2001, and how Mike redid every single performance edit from scratch to bring everything up into high resolution - fascinating stuff! The story about how HP1 was recorded in two different recording studios (not sure how many people knew that before) A discussion of the difference in how the music was mixed in the first film version the subsequent ones How the Children's Suite was originally planned to be released in 2001, but was blocked by JK Rowling How the Vocal Version of Hogwarts Forever came about And lots more! Clips played include the trailer music, Nimbus 2000 from the Children's Suite, Fighting the Troll, one of the HP2 commercials, and more.

    Pity about the massive error or the front cover of Philosopher's Stone. Hopefully they can fix it in time!

    I'm sorry but that's just not true. Other than source music, everything's here.
