  1. So what was it written for? Is it even from Williams’ hand? Thanks for the info; the track always felt out of place and finally it’s starting to make sense why.
  2. Is the alternate Main Title missing from this release??
  3. Meeting John Williams

    I was able to get an autograph from Williams at Tanglewood in 2010 and share a few words with him. He was sitting in the audience during part of the program which was conducted by Keith Lockhart. During intermission, Williams remained near his seat and talked to some fans, gave away autographs, etc. It was an awesome moment. Surreal, magical. I remember he put his hand on my shoulder at the end and said: 'Enjoy the rest of the concert my friend'. It still makes me smile 8 years later. I guess I was really lucky and it was a different time...
  4. John Williams Autograph

  5. I think he was agreeing with what you and Tom said...
  6. Yes! Probably not arranged by Williams.
  7. From Jason Ward’s review: ’The score of Solo by John Powell was solid too. When Williams retires, John Powell could handle the work. Michael Giacchino’s work on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is nothing to shake a stick at and he didn’t get that much time to work on that score. Powell’s music feels tight and plays to the dynamics of the film more than adequately. I do have to confess that on one viewing, I didn’t really notice the young Han theme John Williams contributed to the soundtrack. It just didn’t stand out to me and I’m sure after I’ve seen the film a bajillion times I’ll wonder how I could have been so stupid as to not notice it but I didn’t. Not on my first viewing. On my first viewing I experienced the soundtrack, I didn’t listen to it and I will buy this one for sure. On a musical side note, the eccentric singers in Dreyden’s HQ got one of the biggest laughs in the movie.’ https://makingstarwars.net/2018/05/solo-a-star-wars-story-reviewed-by-jason-ward-spoiler-free/
  8. I think the album is a near perfect compilation/‘Greatest Hits’ album of the music of John Williams. It misses The Imperial March and music from Close Encounters though. Some here really miss the point of the album. It is -obviously- designed for people who just want 1 CD of Williams. Just the hits. It is not made for JWFanners who wanted to see The Tennis Game from The Witches Of Eastwick recorded, because they already have 27 recordings of the Star Wars Main Theme. When people want to own just 1 Beatles album they usually want the hits, not the obscure stuff. They want Yesterday, Let It Be, Help, etc. Not songs they’ve never heard of. When it comes to John Williams, yes people want Star Wars, Jurassic Park and Harry Potter. The album perfectly alligns with the interest in the upcoming concerts (again; surely not just JWFanners are going). It’s good marketing and the sales confirm that.

The Extra-Terrestrial 1993 Jurassic Park 1993 Schindler’s List 2001 Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone
  10. I think your video is great and I can completely relate to the words at the beginning. Exactly how I feel about his music as well!
