  1. Is the re-recorded Superman CD any good?

    The FSM version is by far the best and dynamic sounding set available today because it uses better 6 track sources than the one used by Rhino. Some compression and cleanup was used I believe which may be the result it sounds a bit dry at times and I do remember reading from Remixing engineer Chris Malone article on his website (I've posted the link below) where he discusses its pros and cons in depth. If they plan to reissue the album as a standalone 3CD set this year (on its 40th Anniversary) I would expect that they would further tweak the mix and improve using more groundbreaking technology at their disposal today. As for the RSNO recording:I love it.The Tempos are just right. And Its one their better recordings in the series and Debney takes certain cues to new heights. The 32 bit digital recording is quite impressive and if you have superior hi-fi system than its going to sound tremendous. http://www.malonedigital.com/superman.htm#.WlhawLyWaig
  2. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    Agreed. My Two and half year old son going on three can hum parts of The Main Title and Imperial March too! And after watching me watch Williams videos conducting on screen does the same when he sees me playing the music. Williams music truly transcending to a new generation.
  3. http://variety.com/2018/film/news/mark-hamill-on-star-wars-music-composer-john-williams-1202659494/ John Burlingame did another write up on John Williams and this time talked to STAR WARS actor Mark Hamill. What was supposed to be a five minute chat ended up in much longer interview that it warranted a new spin off article to what Jon did yesterday. After reading this I sent this message to Jon Burlingame: 'He is the entire cast ' What a great and humble way of (showing) respect to our Maestro: Williams. I'm so moved. And it appears that the same quote left Jon Burlingame in quite an awe. He responded back to me: "I was so taken with these thoughts that I felt I simply had to write a separate story. The plan had only been to get him on the phone for five minutes to confirm what I had heard about his admiration for the Maestro. But boy, that last quote sealed it for me"
  4. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    When Maestro Williams completes the 9th film- it will be quite an achievement completing a journey that began in 1977 and ending in 2019. Quite a staggering amount of work. They should just give him another OSCAR just for that alone !
  5. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    Finally we are reading some post LAST JEDI feedback in more depth. Hope there will be more coverage on video and hoping Williams nabs both films for an Oscar nomination each.
  6. Williams confirms EPISODE IX !!

    Thanks. I was so thrilled I didn't type it correctly. But fixed it now.
  7. Great news. John Williams officially confirms to John Burlingame in his new detailed interview to Variety. Read below and rejoice! (Thanks to Mike Matessino for the alert) http://variety.com/2018/music/awards/john-williams-could-set-oscar-record-1202658996/
  8. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Here is somewhat compiled list of films having Anniversaries being discussed at bluray.com forum. And oh! Its the 35th Anniversary of RETURN OF THE JEDI too. check out the link: But its not complete list. http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=14528517
  9. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Don't forget the various DVD's and Blu rays. And a 4K variant of it for sure. And with Jurassic World 2 coming out this year- it would be nice if they can also release JURASSIC PARK 3 expansion this year by mid year or early? I strongly suspect this might be a re-issue of a an important VIP OOP release being triggered for some common good. A super nice initiative from the LLL team.
  10. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Somebody should list down all the Anniversaries this year! oh -one 40th Anniversary coming this year is Superman-The Movie!
  11. I was expecting LLL to do it. However, I'm surprised the artwork cover is pretty straight forward the same as its original incarnation and no secondary alternate is provided this time.
  12. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    I hope 6cd set is HARRY POTTER box set. 😁
  13. Terrific Release! Now the hard part: ordering and waiting....!
  14. The Official Intrada Thread

    At 110 minutes plus this new presentation would give the score a whole new life. Looking forward to it ie. I really hope it is ROBIN HOOD and not THE THREE MUSKETEERS. It would be quite a shock if it turned out to be the latter. 😁
  15. The Official Intrada Thread

    I re-watched the film a few weeks ago and found the score and film to be quite appealing and all the unreleased cues are highly anticipated too. It's actually one of the most requested expanded title by film music aficionados and fans of the film.
