  1. How many people here consider themselves JW completists?

    His rendition of Anakin's Dark Deeds is FANTASTIC
  2. I've seen the movie three times now... wish they hadn't closed with the Force theme yet again. Being that Luke is "the spark" and the kid in the final shot is symbolic of "the next Luke" it would have been neat if Williams did something with Luke's theme to close out the movie. Would have been way better than yet another Force theme closing.
  3. How many people here consider themselves JW completists?

    I consider myself a JW completist for his career as a composer, I own nearly all available recordings of his compositions. I’m not missing much, just a few of his lesser known concert works. Still tracking them down... I’m not a completist when it comes to his recordings as a performer or conductor. I have a lot but nowhere near all. I also collect re-recordings of his compositions. From Kunzel, to Gerhardt, to the City of Prague to all the random performers and orchestras out there. All recordings of JW’s compositions I’ve labeled their genre as “John Williams” in my iTunes - which I like to listen to in shuffle mode.
  4. Do you own LLL's The Poseidon Adventure?

    I stopped counting a long time ago but I remember passing 500 around the time Phantom Menace came out. So, maybe double that..? I’ve also gotten rid of some. Sold on eBay, donated to Good Will or given away to friends.
  5. Do you own LLL's The Poseidon Adventure?

    If I like music and I want to buy it on CD, how many CDs I already own is not a factor in whether I buy a new CD.
  6. The Finale tracks are so radically different from each other that I'll be including both. The OST for the regular tracklist and the alternate FYC finale as a "bonus track". The pre-credits cue is longer on the OST, so that is the primary factor.
  7. Do you own LLL's The Poseidon Adventure?

    I have the LLL Poseidon CD. Barely even listen to it apart of the Main and End Titles. The alternate Main Title is also pretty interesting. Earthquake is the most listenable of the disaster scores for me, it's a good album.
  8. Does anyone have this album available to send via email or download? I've been trying since the summer to get a copy of this and now the links to the coast guard band's website don't work.
  9. I voted "A playlist with only few tracks" When I listen to it, I listen to about 8 or 9 tracks from the OST plus the FYC track "The Resistance". I've only listened to the OST straight through one single time.
  10. Jaws VS Jaws 2

    Take this rubbish to the Unpopular Opinions thread!
  11. It wouldn't surprise me if they released this on CD at some point. In the meantime, I'll take that cool album cover art for my iTunes.
  12. Ordered! Along with Big Top Pee-Wee for some reason. It fell into my cart by accident.
  13. Dang. It's a shame JW didn't want to revisit the "double LP" concept himself. It would be like John Williams' Smile.
  14. Does the booklet go into detail about how much work Williams put into the double LP version, how far along that planned version made it and why it was scrapped?
  15. What's your favorite thing about John Williams?

    That bald head. I want to dip that bald head in oil and rub it all over my body.
