  1. The CD booklet is all in English, but it contains a separate insert with the same contents in Japanese. The whole thing is in a jewel case, containing the CD and the DVD. It should have been released everywhere!
  2. I bought a CD copy in Japan that only contained the vol. 3 disc, without the first two. I'd link to it but I'm having trouble finding it online right now.

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

    Yes, the second half feels jumbled and it all runs together for me. I enjoy the first half a lot more. The best part about the second half, though, is that all the themes get lots of variations.
  5. I hope he wrote 80 minutes or less for her, because I want it all to be on the CD!!!!!!!

    Hmm, I may need to take a closer look at the two versions of Turning Back the World.

    Yes, I dropped all those bonus tracks. I didn't actually compare them, but placed my trust in Mike's liner notes. It depends how much of a completist you are. I'm glad to have those tracks, but don't need to keep them in my edit. Same with the source music from the Superman II and III set. Mike's recreation of the Can You Read My Mind vocal version from the OST can be found on disc 3. The version on Disc 2, track 37, has different timing for the editing of the vocals, which is meant to match how they're edited in the film (the original film and OST had different editing). The Disc 2 version is also only the second half of the track (the section with the vocals). If I had wanted to source the vocal track from the LLL set, I would have used the version of Can You Read My Mind from disc 3 to replace the main program version. For both vocal versions on the new set, though, I found that the vocals were mixed differently, and that I liked the mixing on the FSM set better. On the LLL set they don't blend as well with the backing track, and I found it distracting whenever the vocal track faded in and out.

    It's an example of JW's comedic, "bumbling" mode that he's used here and there throughout his career, but I enjoy "Introducing the Thompsons" and "Viktor's Tale" much more.

    Yeah, just a sequencing suggestion, there's no alternate of March of the Villains. The rest of the tracks on my list are the "substantial alternates" Pieter was asking about.

    Yes, for my edit I didn't want March of the Villains in the main program, so I moved it to the bonus tracks. And I buried it a bit because it's not exactly my favorite track

    Actually I was pleased to find a breakdown of exactly that in the liner notes. Mike described which alternates were substantially different and which weren't. Based on what he wrote, here's the sequence I came up with for bonus tracks in my own edit: Prelude and Main Title (alternate) The Planet Krypton (alternate segment) The Dome Opens (alternate) The March of the Villains The Mugger (alternate) The Fortress of Solitude (alternate segment) By the way I also included the vocal version of "Can You Read My Mind" in the main program in place of the instrumental. But I took it from the FSM release, which had the vocals mixed in a way that I preferred.
  12. No, but see the first post of this thread: I'm sure Jay left it out because it's not up to date. But it's still helpful for keeping track of the OST, FYC, and so on.

    John Williams' 2019 Concert Schedule

    Once you're in Lenox, Tanglewood is still not very accessible except by car. Even if you find a way to get there by bus, you may need a cab or Uber/Lyft just to get from the bus station to Tanglewood and back. If there's any way you can rent a car I definitely recommend that. You could book accommodations somewhere between Lenox and Boston if you didn't want to spend the money to stay in Boston (and the parking situation in Boston is pretty bad too). On the other hand, you'd have no problem getting to one of the Boston shows, but it sounds like the chances of seeing Williams himself in Boston this year are a lot lower, based on the info we have right now.

    Looking at mine, the case arrived in good condition, but the clear plastic does seem to have some manufacturing defects.
  15. I've been doing the same while listening to the Harry Potter discs, rather than dig out the booklet, lol. I probably should just print the track list out for future reference.
