  1. I did not consider that, but that is an interesting idea.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN WILLIAMS!

    February 8 is always a great day. No matter what I am doing, I make a point to settle in and listen to lots of John Williams music. Now that I am doing a podcast devoted to John Williams I listen to it more than ever. I even released the next episode of my podcast today to commemorate his birthday. It's devoted to the 1964 film "The Killers." http://thebatonpodcast.podbean.com

    The Songs Of John Williams: which are essential?

    I mentioned only theatrical films. I knew there were some songs written for TV but I couldn't find recordings of a lot of them, or note the shows for which they were written. You might be right about that album release. I recall stumbling upon a website listing of the album that had different track names and had the date as 1963 for the album. I can't find that website now. Thanks for the clarification.

    The Songs Of John Williams: which are essential?

    Two songs deserve to be on this list, for completion's sake: "None But the Brave" and "John Goldfarb, Please Come Home!" are the first two songs written from themes composed by John Williams. In the case of "None But the Brave," it was not in the finished film but made the album release as a filler. Not sure if JW had input in the song's creation. As for "John Goldfarb," it is the first official song written by John Williams to be featured in a theatrical film. It's catchy, and kitschy, as sung by Shirley MacLaine. I will be discussing the songs and scores of both films in upcoming episodes of my podcast "The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey" this month. Link to podcast website
  5. I agree that there has been too much of a break between episodes. I have enjoyed their discussions. In the meantime, take a listen to my podcast that journeys through John Williams' career, one film at a time. Each episode comes out each Wednesday, so no severe withdrawals. Go to this link to check out the episodes. It's all John Williams, all the time!!!

    New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey

    Thanks! I knew the Jaws comparison was a stretch, hence the disclaimer. My knowledge of JW's work from the early '70s is limited, but I do know the music from Images well and I kind of agree about the melodic similarities. Can't wait for The Eiger Sanction to hear if you are right about that as well.

    Thanks for listening! I will consider that for future shows. There won't be much to find for these earlier films, though.

    This is worth considering, Yavar.

    I will briefly mention "Heidi" and others as they come up in the chronology, but they will not get solo episodes.

    New Podcast! The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey

    I have listened to a couple of episodes and really enjoyed them! I am not dealing with any of John Williams' TV work, only to mention that he was working on something in TV while composing a film score. I only plan for this to be a two-year project. I am anxious to see the Goldsmith Odyssey go for a decade!

    You will have a long wait. The earliest film there won't be discussed until sometime in fall 2019. I agree about #2.

    No, I did not know about that podcast until just an hour ago. That one is good, but I won't be deviating from the chronology or lumping two scores into one show.
