  1. That's nice to know! I should inquire about this, too, when the cds go out.

    The Joe Kraemer Thread

    Great news! Hopefully the VOD will extend to these shores at some point (same with Comrade Detective, would love to see/hear that score in context)

    STAR WARS - Live To Projection Concerts

    I'm on board as well! Decided to go with a stall seat close to the stage for maximum orchestra observation. Looking forward to September! Thanks for the reminder - that's an incredible piece and marvelously performed recording

    SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE - 3CD Set from La-La Land Records

    The earlier releases were before my collector's releases time, and the blue box was too expensive for a lot of stuff I'm not interested in, so this is actually the perfect occasion to finally get this

    SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE - 3CD Set from La-La Land Records

    I'll definitely get this (even if not immediately), and am glad they released it, as I'm one of the strange people who doesn't have any version of the score yet.
  6. Same thing happened with my JP order two years ago... first one was untraceable after taking 5 weeks, when I wrote to LLL they immediately sent another one, which arrived 6 days later, and the next day the original showed up. I inquired with them how I can return the spare, but never heard back, then I kinda forgot about it... so it's still gathering dust somewhere (the unopened package, that is). My HP/SL is still sitting in Frankfurt customs, for a solid 7 days now. The excitement rises...
  7. Judging from the Burden/Matessino interview audio, it sounds great!
  8. Yes, that series' german titles are even more baffling than usual - Not an ounce of consistency. 1: Fluch der Karibik 2: Pirates of the Caribbean: Fluch der Karibik 2 3: Pirates of the Caribbean: Am Ende der Welt [that one's at least faithful to the original... only took them 3 movies] /e: I believe it got worse again with the following ones, haven't watched those
  9. Done! 166753 A round 200$ order... hopefully to go under the tree
  10. Absolutely magnificent! I was optimistic after the London concert programme slip-up and following wink-wink-nudge-nudge, great that it's real Major thanks to everybody who brought this set to life! Now I just have to hope customs won't hold it hostage until next year...
  11. I also noticed this during my first listen today. Like you said, it's also noticeable, but quieter, on the disc 2 version of the track, so it seems to be a recording artefact (?). It certainly looks strange on the spectrogram (top track, directly before 3:32): I tried to edit it out, which seems to work rather well (the cut time not really noticeable because there's a slight rall.): Original: https://picosong.com/wXa4N/ Fixed: https://picosong.com/wXa4x/ Other than this minor nitpick, awesome set so far - this score's a completely new discovery for me (apart from the End Credits, which blew me away when I heard it for the first time in London, and maybe even prefer to the original recording - I liked the slower, more freeflowing interpretation :))

    STAR WARS - Live To Projection Concerts

    Great concert! I think I watched about half of the movie, as when the orchestra was playing, I was too occupied watching them to pay much attention to e proceedings on the screen... I'm still fascinated by the inner workings of these things, how the conductor navigates the sync, how the players react and phrase the music... They really did give it their all and played with a lot of heart and enthusiusm, so much so that it was hard at times not to forget that this was not the OST recording, performance-wise. The after-concert drinks where a nice way to wind down the evening!
