  1. Williams on Williams is a bit of an odd duck, I'll admit. I think part of the issue is that, as a sequel album to The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration, it may have been a little too soon. There were only three new films (Hook, Jurassic Park, and Schindler's List) to provide new material, so there is a little bit too much underscore and "filler" from earlier scores. I myself could do without The Battle for Hollywood, and the Dialogue from CE3K, just to name two tracks. If the album wasn't limited to Spielberg films, they could have added suites from Far and Away, JFK, Stanley & Iris, Presumed Innocent, The Accidental Tourist (I pick those because JW never recorded material from them in Boston). That said, I still think it's a very strong album. It contains definitive recordings of the Theme from Jurassic Park, The Barrel Chase, the Hook material, even the Schindler's List tracks are on par with the originals.

    I used to be the King, the King of old Broadway.

    Bourbon and beans, an explosive combination. Think Spock can handle it?

  14. That extension has been there in concert performances since 1978 at least. I think the first recording of it was Zubin Mehta's with the LA Philharmonic.

    What is the last piece of classical music you listened to?

    I recently acquired a box set of Seiji Ozawa recordings, and am really appreciating them. I know he gets a bad rap sometimes, but I've truly enjoyed what I've heard so far. In particular, some of his earlier recordings when he was with the Chicago Symphony are a wonder. This recording of Dvorak's Cello Concerto with the Boston Symphony is great as well.
