    JW on the CSO

    Don't believe I've seen this posted yet!
  3. Wow. Awesome. Strangely enough this is one of my last holy grails I believe, with maybe A View to a Kill and Golden Gun left. I practically wore the original album out during High School, and always desperately wanted two cues in particular (Out of the Snow and Stay with Me). It's funny how I used to drink up the bombast of cues like Submarine but now I prefer a more streamlined approach. Still, it all holds a soft-spot for me and Elektra's Theme is wonderful.

    Across the Stars for Anne-Sophie Mutter

    I’d love to hear something like The Eiger Sanction for Violin and Orchestra. The melody always sounded very classical/baroque to me.
  5. The one where it plays the force theme and then goes into the End Credits... But seriously, I remember how awesome it was hearing the End Credits of TFA in IMAX with that gorgeous full-blown rendition of Rey’s Theme. It gave me chills and it completely sucks that they removed it on the Blu Ray. I’d pick AOTC as a close second too (finale). I must have listened to that track a thousand times.
  6. This popped up earlier this month on YouTube, not sure if it was mentioned here all those years ago or slipped under the radar. Enjoy!

    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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
