    America the Dream Goes On

    JW really f’d up by not using this as his idée fixe for all of his post-‘85 Americana film scores. What a glorious tapestry he would have wove! Screw Star Wars, that would have been his Magnum Opus!
  2. Amazing, Bespin! That is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I know they’re probably holding out for better elements for a complete score, but they simply should have released an album remaster in the meantime. It’s like hearing the score for the first time.
  3. I always loved reading that note from John Badham on the back of the LP. JW just writing the score and sending cues off to the orchestrator and copyists before even playing him a note for weeks. Talk about confidence!
  4. No no, he was calling out for his lunch order and misdialed!
  5. Whatever it is, it’ll be awesome. And then they’ll butcher it on the Blu Ray.

    Musical impressions of the sea

    Oh, how could I forget another Herrmann gem.

    The Deep! My favorite score.

    Favorite King Kong score?

    I’m sorry, I had to go with JB but I agree it really is a gorgeous theme and score! If anybody hasn’t listened to King Kong Lives I highly recommend it.

    John Williams's False Endings

    Hmm. I don’t know if I consider the moments in Battle of the Heroes and Dracula’s End Titles to be false endings but if they are I love ‘em. Adventures of Han is a great piece but that false ending is a bit much. But yeah I absolutely love that big brass and string climax in the Dracula End Titles if one considers that a false ending.

    John Williams's False Endings

    I can just imagine what it’s like to live in the house of Williams and overhear him composing these endings... plink plonk...plonk.....PLONK! ........... *soft chuckles* ............ PLONK!
  12. Wow, I’m thrilled that I’m finally gonna get Airport ‘77! Finally. It’s one of those obscure scores that got me hooked on film music. And of course I’m sure Elmer Bernstein’s score for Thoroughly Modern Millie is on the list since it’s never had an official release.
  13. That’s how I feel about Jaws 2. The album is so musically satisfying, the complete score feels very “cue-y”.
  14. It was called the Ship of Dreams!
  15. For the love of god Johnny an underhand soft-toss! At least until Episode IX is done!
