  1. John Barry- Beyondness of Things, Eternal Echoes, Raise The Titanic Jerry Goldsmith- Players (love this score more than perhaps I should), Masada and QB VIII (via the 40 Years of Jerry Goldsmith collection) Lalo Schifrin- Bullitt Bullitt was my first Schifrin score both listened to and brought. Great sound to it (i.e Just Coffee, The Architect's Building, Shifting Gears etc)
  2. Relatively often but looking about, there's books I've managed to re-read after a 4-5 year period.
  3. I listed to a rash of scores for the first time: Saturn 3, Elmer Bernstein Psycho (the Joel McNeely recording) Cinderella Liberty and The Reivers, Williams and then The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing. For good measure I added to the playlist on my phone, the song (Dream Away Child, Sinatra) and it all tied together nicely. Love the sound of Cat Dancing throughout. Something about Williams pre-Jaws/Star Wars.
  4. Listened to a few lately, over D-Day: Michael Kamen's Band of Brothers (highlights are Parapluie and Discovery of the Camp) Williams' Saving Private Ryan and then, after, John Barry's Robin & Marian. A quietly beautiful one in its way. Such as in Over the Wall/Escape as the theme builds at a gentle canter, gradually increasing.
  5. Well, I'll definitely consider the LLL DAD release. I'm not as keen on TWINE's score beyond a couple of tracks. I'll have a look at some point.
  6. I slipped towards, what might some consider the dark side...David Arnold's Die Another Day and Tomorrow Never Dies. seriously considering the LLL expanded for DAD. My CD (brought when it came out in 2002) has packed up..
  7. Because the 90s were a long time ago. Toy Story 2 is twenty years old...
  8. Same. At uni when I went to get my Revenge of the Sith DVD. In the old HMV on New Oxford Street. I joined the queue right at the end -they drew the rope behind me and someone said, "Mr Daniels has agreed to stay to sign everyone's DVD". When I got up there, we shook hands, he asked what I did -said I was a History student, he said I was the second that day, he personalised the DVD, posed for a photo (we both took our specs off for it and he joked about it) and off I went. Nice chap in my book.
  9. John Barry's Across the Sea of Time (I went through a Goldsmith mood for Jan-March and now it's JB), this might not be an OST as such but it's wonderful. Flight Over New Year packs a wallop, it's moving, it's stirring and personally, if I ever get to New York, this would be playing in my mind hopefully. Across the Sea of Time (the track) is as good, Coney Island and The Wonder of America.
  10. As Norm MacDonald might say: "Someone explain to the folks at home what ascension means". 😄
  11. Tonight, well, to borrow a line by Sinatra on his Vegas album: "Jack Daniels...that's what it is."
  12. You Only Live Twice, Barry love the sound at the start of "Aki, Tiger and Osato", something kind of dangerous and sixties cool. You forget the film it's attached to. Other highlights "Fight at Kobe Docks", "James Bond in Japan" and a few others in between.
