  1. Thanks for clarifying that Jay. I always wondered how that aspect worked.
  2. I also have a spare copy, wonder what it is worth.
  3. @Thor If I remember they offered me around $20 for about 15 CDs including Chips and Slipstream and Silva's Jane Eyre. And then I would have to post the CDs to them at +/- $50. It's also the bleeding shipping that messes everything up. Perhaps one day if I visit Norway we can do a trade
  4. It's more of concern for Fox titles that are long OOP and expensive or difficult to obtain (such as the afore-mentioned Towering Inferno). Again, that title may have snuck through in time. Let's hope. On the plus side, labels can focus their energy and funds on Universal, there's lots of stuff there to mine (not only Williams).
  5. They pay a pittance. Offered me next to nothing for my Goodbye, Mr. Chips FSM set.
  6. My replacement disc 3 will be with me shortly. LLL's service is outstanding.
  7. Straight from MM himself: "Fox Music itself is not doing any additional licensing at this point, but there are still some releases coming from deals previously in place. There will be a "pause" as one studio reviews 80 years of another's musical history and the thousands of soundtrack albums that have been done." https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=136481&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=1&r=529#bottom Could The Towering Inferno have made it through?
  8. And if not, then he certainly has enough now to have prevented Disney from re-issuing same ridiculous 40+ minute sequence in 2018 when LP time constraints are no longer an issue. It sticks out like a sore thumb next to the other five 70+ minute presentations. Help us Mike Matessino, you're our only help.
  9. Aha! So I'm not dreaming. When you say pretty bad, is it William Motzing / City of Prague Philharmonic bad, Richard Harman / Philharmonic Rock bad, or Andrew Lane / Orlando Pops bad? I'm curious about the Jaws 2 recording, do you remember which bit of music it had?
  10. Indeed. Type A personalities achieve greatness because they know what they want and take no prisoners. Wishy-washy types such as myself do not. End of story.
  11. My copy has a tiny notch on the data side of one of the discs, hope it will play/rip fine. Pressing plant QC seems to be slipping, my Superman and Braveheart releases also have tiny scratches on at least one of the discs. I'm too afraid to unseal my other recent LLL purchases to check them.
  12. From Blu-ray.com forums: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=319247&page=10 "John Williams lost his touch long ago. His scores have no punch to them anymore. Age catches up to everyone. The guy is in his 80s. The movies need new talent for the music if they want new iconic themes that ppl will recognize without having to be told by nerds "Oh that song belongs to SW!!" LOL we the nerds y'all!
  13. There was a ProArte John Williams compilation CD I saw in a record store (remember those?) in the late 80s / early 90s that had something on from Jaws 2. It was some oddball orchestra like Beverly Hills Pops or Sunset Pops, could very well have been synth too. Could never find it again after that.
  14. All good choices ^ I'd add The Accidental Tourist concert arrangement (the one that's on the Hayman comp), Blood Moon from Images, Nixon and anything from the 60's including Fitzwilly, The Rare Breed, The Plainsman and How to Steal a Million. Dream on
  15. Yeah, but I think they've pretty much disowned that version of Jungle Book so...
  16. I would imagine whatever they have listed on the streaming sites. From memory these include Jungle Book (Poledouris), Billy Bathgate, Consenting Adults, Backdraft and Brazil.
  17. Oddly Varese has their Stargate DE available on iTunes. Strange as MGM usually doesn't grant digital rights to 3rd Parties. Perhaps this one's rights are a bit different - the DVD and Blu-ray releases in Europe are handled by Optimum. These things are so confusing.
  18. I don't think the Williams ones are (except for TESB which Varese has).
  19. Which titles in the CSF series were issued in the 80's on CD with bonus tracks that were not on the LPs? I seem to recall The Sea Hawk was one of them. Apparently Sunset Boulevard was too, and unfortunately these were left off this latest issue (missing tapes?) Glad they've retained the original LP art, much better than the Dolby Surround and recent re-issues. Wonder if they'll do SW/ CE3K and ROTJ? Being Sony Music titles, I wonder if these are the last.
  20. Really excited now to listen to Dances! Thanks for all the great comments!
  21. Part of the reason I got some of those was on hearing that Sony Music had decided to stop licencing to third parties. I was on the fence about Titanic and Dances With Wolves for ages. Who knows if and when some of these will ever see another release.
