  2. I just love it when people complain about something they haven't even heard yet. Good lord folks, let's give it a chance before we pull out the torch and pitchforks... 🙄 Also, why would LLL say this year is going to be one for the books if they didn't have everything already approved and finalized for release? Enough already with the griping, it's frickin' August, not New Year's Eve. I won't call out names cuz you know who you are. Just remember, you're entitled to your opinion, except when it's wrong!

    The Next Matessino/Williams/Spielberg Expansion

    Congrats to the 3 voters who guessed / predicted it would be SPR! @crumbs need to update your spreadsheet
  4. Sweet! Instant day one purchase for me! Hopefully if 2018 is "one for the books", then this is the foreword / preface / chapter one

    John Williams - Low Quantity Alerts!

    @Jay FYI all the LLL links no longer work, I'm guessing due to them updating their site.

    John Williams' Magnum Opus

    I was born in 1974, so for me the period from 1975-1984 is everything to me since it's what I was raised on! Pretty much all my earliest movie memories included a JW score, be it Jaws, SW, ET, IJ, etc... Too many great choices to pick, but since I can only pick one it has to be SW ANH. It's not the strongest SW score but it's the one that started it all and ultimately stirred my interest in movie music. The first soundtrack purchase I ever made was the 4-disc SW Anthology set back in 1993, my freshman year of college. Still have fond memories of putting the discs in my CD walkman and "studying" for exams down in the cafeteria of the dorm. 🤣
  7. Well, guess they read my post above as I just got the email that it has shipped out 😁 Weird thing is I ordered it first day it was available.
  8. Ugh, still no fulfillment on my order. Was hoping to have this to listen to before I hit the road cross-country tomorrow, would have been great to listen to in the truck

    I would say that it could be Always since it would hit the following marks: $19.98 single disc Universal title "meh" factor what it could represent as a whole to get us drooling over? additional Spielberg / Williams titles? But, "special" wouldn't be a word I would use to describe it

    @Jay Stop getting your facts in the way of my feelings!

    I read a user's comment in the FSM board and I think they may be on to something... I know it's not Universal BUT!... It could just be the Indiana Jones anthology. 95% of the reaction to KOTCS was "meh" (movie, not music). However, a release of all four movie soundtracks in C&C form could justify an article in Variety. Plus, isn't Concorde's license on Indy over? This could also put credence in the "one for the books" message! Start it in reverse order like Superman, starting with KOTCS and ending on Black Friday with Raiders and Superman!!!! I certainly don't believe LLL would have said this if they were just re-releasing the Superman blue box titles. OK, time to wake up from that dream, it was fun while it lasted LOL
  12. Very unexpected and welcomed surprise! I haven't owned any prior release of this and loved the movie as a youngster so just placed my order! Samples sound great so far, sounds like Mike Matessino has done it again!

    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    I tried the search function for this thread and don't want to go through 40 pages of posts so forgive me if it's been brought up before. I took my sons to see Solo (their 1st viewing, my 2nd), and I believe I detected the Imperial Suite from Rogue One in the scene where Han and Qira are attempting to escape in the space port at the beginning of the film. Not the Imperial March source music that is playing over the "PA" system there but in the soundtrack. Was I smoking crack again or did I hear a faint bit of it? Chad
