  1. I’ll listen as soon as the CD is available here, which will probably be late since that has been an issue with Disney’s Star Wars. Don’t mind about spoilers since I don’t care about new Star Wars movies and won’t watch IX.
  2. Symphony of the goddesses (Master Quest) was released in this album: https://www.allmusic.com/album/the-legend-of-zelda-symphony-of-the-goddesses-master-quest-live-concert-from-the-venetian-mw0003080203 Though it seems it was only a digital release and there was some issue with that release and it was pulled (it does seem to be on Spotify). There’s a lot of repetition from the 25th and 30th CDs, but there’s some unique tracks on it, like a A Link to the Past medley. There’s more clapping and cheering than in the 30th, where it’s mostly only at the end of tracks, in this one there’s some clapping in the middle of the tracks.
  3. Well the description mentions the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, the tracklist (very BOTW heavy) does mention an Ocarina medley and Kan’ accordeon medley: Disc 1: Main Theme – Breath of the Wild Breath of the Wild Medley – Hyrule Zelda’s Theme Ocarina Melodies Suite 2018 Boss Battle Medley 2018 A Link Between Worlds & Tri Force Heroes Medley Breath of the Wild – Champions Disc 2: Link’s Awakening Medley Breath of the Wild – Kass Medley Horse Race The Legend of Zelda ~Harp Lesson~ Breath of the Wild – Final Battle The Legend of Zelda Main Theme Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 Trailer BGM
  4. It’s up for pre-order https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L45D4S5/

    RIP Nick Redman

    Sad news, I remember being so happy the Christmas I got the SW Anthology box, such a great set for its time. RIP
  6. Really close, but I guess the prequels. Potter suffers a bit from the fact that COS is very similar to PS, although I do love the new material.
  7. Probably Return of the Jedi or the original Star Wars
  8. Didn’t arrive for Christmas, but the ordeal is over after terrible service from all parties involved. All in all, not a bad holiday haul though, now just need time to listen to it all!
  9. The wierd thing is mine has been out for delivery since saturday, it said expected delivery by Saturday, 8:00 pm, then after that didn't happened it changed to Monday by 8:00 pm, and now it just says "Awaiting delivery scan" with no possible date. Just awful.
  10. If a few additional hands for the holiday shopping season meant a 100 dollar mark up per HP set, well, let’s just say I should have asked for a job at the LLL warehouse last time I was at LA.
  11. To the frontier sure, but to Mexico City they're actually about the same, LAX to Mexico City is 3 hours by plane and MIA to Mexico Cityt is like 3 and half hours. Anyway the thing is, this service I'm using, Mail Boxes, Etc, is located in Miami so I had to have it sent there. It seems pretty secure which is more important than speed with an item of this price. There are a lot of horror stories of regular mail, which is what LLL would have used from LA.
  12. I was there only til sunday for a work thing, I'm back at Mexico and I actually had it shipped to Florida, there's a service there that will send it to Mexico with tracking and they'll do the customs clearance for about $19, which is cheaper than most shipping to Mexico (with the exception of Amazon).
  13. I ordered it at around 12:45, since that was the day I arrived at LA, and at exactly 12 I was speaking with the migration officer, so it wouldn't have been a nice thing to say "can this wait, I need to see if the HP set is up already?", so I ordered it on the cab to the hotel and also had never used paypal before. Anyway, mine changed to awaiting shipping yesterday, so you'll be fine I think.
  14. Tell me about it, even a regular $19.99 CD that a couple of years ago would have been automatic buys are now like a decent amount of money over here. That coupled with the difficulty of getting such releases here is disencouraging. I love LLL and they've done a terrific job (I love their Williams, Batman:TAS sets and more), but I kinda wish this had been a joint release with Watertower music (or whatever WB label is) so I could buy it from Amazon, which is extremely reliable with shipping.
  15. I was so happy with the Concorde box set, going from the TOD 40+ original LP to what we have now is amazing. TOD is in my top 5 so I'd welcome a complete release, but I'm more than ok with the Concorde set.
  16. Probably... I don't think there are many Diegos from Mexico here. I have a full time job and twin toddler boys, so I hardly have time to listen to music these days, let alone post about it (I think I've listened to the JP and ET sets like 3 times each, and I haven't even got the White album 50 anniversary set yet, which is shameful for me), but this is a monumental relase afterall, probably the most exiting for me since the Concord Indy set, so I took the time to post, I figured I'd asked since I'll be in LA next week.
  17. So... probably a dumb question, since there's no indication on LLL's website, but does anyone know if LLL has some sort of express shipping option?? I'm going to be in the LA area for work from Nov 27th to Dec 2nd (though those dates ara probably too soon for this set anyway) and I'd love to get it then. I live in Mexico and getting these CDs is always a pain. I order from Movie music, and Peter Kelly is a great guy, but Mexico's post service is awful, it's expensive and it takes forever. The JP and ET sets took like two months to get here and disappered from tracking for a long time. Also, we have a new president that is not "market friendly" to put it lighty and the dollar has already gone up and is going to keep going up, so by the time Movie music gets this set it might be too expensive.

    What are your Top 3 Force Theme renditions?

    Only three is tough: 1. Binary Sunset 2. Rebel fleet from Empire's finale (I love the "b" theme that's never used again) 3. Anakin leaves his mom Honorable mentions: - When Luke hears Obi-Wan's voice during the trench battle - Alternate from Vader's funeral - Anakin and Obi-Wan say goodbye from Revenge of the Sith (unreleased I think)

    Favorite 'Star Wars' Score?

    There's something wrong when you can point to a Abbey Road chair creak in the Hoth opening with second marks. Empire wasn't recorded at Abbey Road, it's an Anvil Studio chair creaking. ?

    Star Wars Concert Suites

    Erich Kunzel once did a Star Wars concert here and he played Finale, if I remember correctly he started it from the last statement of Han Solo & the Princess before the end credits begin.

    Do you enjoy the Force Awakens score?

    Strange, I enjoy both of those scores (Crystal Skull does have some boring "ambient music" I'll admit) and feel they have memorable tracks, though obviously they're not in the Temple of Doom or Empire league. To each his own, I'm not getting anything out of TFA, Rey's theme is nice, but not great, and it sounds like Harry Potter (the part with the sorting hat I think), the march goes nowhere, the action cues are usual rithmic modern Williams that are not my cup of tea (there's no Forest battle here), Ren's theme is cool but underdeveloped and I agree with King Mark, there are no great uses of old themes ( no Anakin leaves his mother for example).
