  1. This morning I listened to a 2014 recording by the BBC Concert Orchestra on Spotify. I don't think it correspond to a physical album. The playing is good, but it contains a way too much echo for me, but the thing is they recorded the End Titles from The Empire Strikes Back. Well, I think it's worth of mention. Except the Gerhardt version, I don't remember any other re-recording of this piece. Please feel free to share your own discoveries!

    John Williams Discography

    Here is a new thread especially to discuss the John Williams Discography. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_discography Created on Wikipedia by myself in 2012, it's the most complete JW discography that can be actually found. It includes all the works performed by John Williams, as a performer and a conductor. It also features a section dedicated to his discography as a composer, which features many compositions which he himself did not record. Please help me to keep it up to date! ___ With a little advance, here's a new update in the "Compilation / Reissue albums" section: 2015 A.I. Artificial Intelligence [Expanded Archival Collection] La-La Land Records 3 CD-set, includes previously unreleased material. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_discography#Compilation_.2F_Reissue_albums
  3. Sony announce the boxset for 19 january 2018. I don't think there will be any remastering. But it's great for new collector who didn't already own these superb albums. For now, we can assume of this content: 1 Music of the Night (BPO) 2 Star Wars Trilogy (Skywalker Symphony) 3 The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration (BPO) 4 I Love a Parade (BPO) 5 The Green Album (BPO) 6 Joy to the World (BPO) 7 Night and Day (BPO) 8 Unforgettable (BPO) 9 Music for Stage and Screen (BPO) 10 It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing (BPO) 11 Williams on Williams (BPO) 12 Summon the Heroes (BPO) 13 The Five Sacred Trees album (London SO) 14 The Hollywood Sound (London SO) 15 Cinema Serenade (Itzhak Perlman, Pittsburgh SO) 16 Gershwin Fantasy (Joshua Bell, London SO) 17 Cinema Serenade 2 (Itzhak Perlman, BPO) 18 American Journey (Utah SO/ LA orchestra) 19 Yo-Yo Ma Plays The Music Of John Williams (LA orchestra) 20 The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration Part III (LA orchestra) A little bonus, like the 2006 "Memoirs of a Geisha - Live Sessions" EP would be welcome... we don't know... source: https://www.imusic.dk/cd/0889854177928/john-williams-2018-john-williams-conductor-compact-disc
  4. Recently a member of this forum sayed what I suspected, that the sound quality of the original vinyl of Dracula is far superior than the sound of the 1990 CD reissue. So I look for good WAV rips of a mint copy of this vinyl. I will select the best tracks from each vinyls you'll sent me and digitally restore them. Please message me in private I you wan to contribute! As Dracula is always forgotten when it's the time to reissue John Williams albums (because the original tapes are known to be lost in time)... we'll manage it ourselves! Dracula, we don't forget you!!! Émanuel

  7. I try What @Jay asked me to do, to be more specific in our threads titles... we'll see how time it will hold. So the lastest press news, says the 6 CD will feature the "reconstructed" programs of the 6 OST (in the case of the OT, we obviously speak about the LP programs). Yes, we calculated it, the 2-LP programs can now fit on a single modern CD. So that's it... now, we have to wait for new relevant information that will be given by secured sources (Disney, etc.) and some our friends who have contacts...
  8. Hey Sony, you forgot those recordings in your boxset... Please don't forget them in your next compilations!

  10. I just re-discovered this wonderful track on the Boston Pops album "On stage" directed dy JW. I really love it! Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a ballet with music by Richard Rodgers and choreography by George Balanchine. It occurs near the end of Rodgers and Hart's 1936 Broadway musical comedy On Your Toes. Slaughter is the story of a hoofer who falls in love with a dance hall girl who is then shot and killed by her jealous boyfriend. The hoofer then shoots the boyfriend.Source: Wikipedia

  15. George Gershwin (September 26, 1898 – July 11, 1937) was and remains one of the most successful and utterly American composer of all time. It is not surprising that John Williams recorded and arranged some of his best works! I will take this opportunity to again go back in time and dig into John Williams's discography, as we celebrate this year the 80th anniversary of Gershwin's death. Manne–That's Gershwin! In 1965, John Williams handled the musical direction, arrangements, and orchestrations of Shelly Manne's LP Manne—That's Gershwin! In 2002, Steve Houghton re-recorded those arrangements. For this "remake," Houghton formed a quintet (with trumpeter Clay Jenkins, altoist Dan Higgins, pianist Stefan Karlsson, and bassist Lou Fischer) and utilized the University of North Texas Two O'Clock Lab Band. The musicians interpret the ten selections from the original album (which includes a few combo pieces) plus four additional quintet performances, with all of the music being by George Gershwin. Highly recommended. Manne–That's Gershwin! (1965, Capitol Records, T-2313) Arrangements and Musical Direction by Johnny Williams. (Released in 1965, Capitol Records, ST-2313, Stereo) (Reissued in 1984, Discovery Records, DS-909, Stereo) Steve Houghton Quintet - The Manne We Love: Gershwin Revisited (2002, TNC Recordings, CD-1713)* Concerto Intro; By Strauss; My Man's Gone Now; Mine; Love Is Here To Stay; Summertime; Real American Folk Song; The Man I Love; Prelude No. 2; How Long Has This Been Going On?; Concerto In F; Soon; Love Walked In; Plenty O' Nuttin'; Lady Be Good. * You can buy this album here: https://www.tncmusic.net Love is here to stay “Love Is Here to Stay” is a song written by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin for the movie "The Goldwyn Follies" (1938). It reached popularity in 1951 when it was sung by Gene Kelly to Leslie Caron in the film "An American in Paris". In 1984, John Williams recorded it with the Boston Pops Orchestra and the american opera singer and recitalist Jessye Norman. With a Song in My Heart (1984, Philips, 412 625-1; Norman, Boston Pops O/Williams) Falling In Love With Love; In The Still Of The Night; Spring Is Here; I'm Old-Fashioned; A Sleepin' Bee; I Love Paris; The Song Is You; I Love You; Love Is Here To Stay [Featuring John Williams (p)]; All The Things You Are; Love Walked In; With A Song In My Heart. (Released in 1984, Philips, 412 625-2) (Reissued for digital download in 2014, Decca) An American in Paris An American in Paris is a jazz-influenced symphonic poem written in 1928. Inspired by the time Gershwin had spent in Paris, it evokes the sights and energy of the French capital in the 1920s and is one of his best-known compositions. John Williams recorded it with the Boston Pops Orchestra in a 1990 tribute album called "Pops by Gershwin", as well as some others Gershwin's most memorable works, like the famous "Rhapsody in Blue". Pops By George: The Music of George Gershwin (1990, Philips, 426 404-2; Dichter, Boston Pops O/Williams) An American In Paris; Suite From Porgy & Bess; Selections From Girl Crazy; Rhapsody In Blue. (Released in 1990 "Pops by Gershwin", Philips, 426 404-2) Strike up the band Strike Up the Band is a 1927 musical with a book by Morrie Ryskind, lyrics by Ira Gershwin and music by George Gershwin. It ran in Philadelphia that year, unsuccessfully, and on Broadway in 1930 after the original book by George S. Kaufman was revised. The story satirizes America's taste for war: America declares war on Switzerland over a trivial trade issue. The overture is often performed as a stand-alone concert work. John Williams recorded two versions of this overture, both with the Boston Pops Orchestra. The first one for the 1980 album "Pops on the march" and the second one, for the 1991 album "I Love A Parade". I Love A Parade (1991, Sony Classical, SK 46747; Boston Pops O/Williams) I Love A Parade; Midway March; Washington Post March; Seventy-Six Trombones; El Capitan; South Rampart Street Parade; Semper Fidelis; Liberty Bell March; Colonel Bogey March; Strike Up The Band; The Thunderer; Hands Across The Sea; King Cotton; Pops On The March; Under The Double Eagle (Unter Dem Doppleladler); The Stars And Stripes Forever. Fantasy for violin & orchestra on Porgy and Bess Jascha Heifetz asked George Gershwin to compose a violin work, but the composer's early death prevented what would no doubt have been a fruitful collaboration. Whether Alexander Courage's 'Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra on "Porgy and Bess"' is "as close as we can get to the violin concerto Gershwin never wrote," as Joshua Bell says, is certainly a point for debate. Courage, composer of the original 'Star Trek' theme, was asked by conductor John Williams to assemble the fantasy and the result is a showpiece for violin which uses eight songs from 'Porgy and Bess.' The work is a successful vehicle for the soloist: Bell's Stradivarius sings as he glides through the passagework with ease.

  17. Hi, Without making a real Top 10, I wonder which are your favourite "JW & Boston Pops" albums? There are few sources which review and comment these albums on the web, so what would be for example, your suggestion for anybody who would want to begin a basic collection?

  18. Hi experts, My website tries to document the OST albums that contains a "Re-recording" (you can search using this keyword in the main albums page). Example: Checkmate [Original Music from The CBS-TV Show] (1960, Columbia, CL 1591, Re-recording) Theme From Checkmate; The Isolated Pawn; Cyanide Touch; Far Out Place; Hassle In The Castle; En Passant; The Black Night; Fireside Eyes; The Bishop's Retreat; Queen's Sacrifice; Shy Youth; The King Swings. So I would like to know if some are missing on my page. Any help someone? http://www.goplanete.com/johnwilliams/music/disco/albums.htm
  19. We talked about alternate takes & cues in an other thread and I wonder if a new section on my website about those "alt" would be relevant. Do we have enough to document them? Do a fan here have the exact infos about them? Do we know more than these ones? Do you think it would be relevant to document those alternates in one single place? ____ Alternates and where to find them Star Wars (1977) Abbreviations: OLP stands for original double album; FOXB stands for the Fox Scores/Arista 4-CD Box Set; RCA stands for the RCA Victor/BMG Classics "Special Edition" CDs. 1. MAIN TITLE--There are no more than five takes of the film's main title that were recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra. All five of these can be heard at the 5:00 mark of Track 13 of Disc 1 of the RCA. This is explained only in the CD's liner notes, not on the jacket of the CD package itself. Take 16 is the historic first recording of the "Star Wars Theme". The wind section was toned down for Take 17, and portions of the last three takes (18, 19, and 20) made up what would become the final film version of the cue. However, only two of these takes were used for the FOXB. Disc 1, Track 2 used Take 19, while Disc 4, Track 2 used Take 20. Take 20 was also used for the radio adaptation of Star Wars. For the original 24-page read along book and record (released by Buena Vista Records in 1977), the second reprise of "Luke's Theme" with added brass in Take 18 was utilized after the narrator says "Let's Begin Now". You could count the 45 rpm single version of the theme as a sixth variant since it was edited to over 3 minutes. But please don't count Meco's more successful disco version as a seventh variant since it was entirely rerecorded. 2. IMPERIAL ATTACK--As presented on Disc 1, Track 3 of the FOXB, some of the accentuation of the beats in the opening section are markedly different than the final film version. 3. BINARY SUNSET--This second portion of what is commonly titled "The Princess Appears" has somewhat of a history. Originally, John Williams based this cue on "Luke's Theme". For the final film version, it was based on "Ben's Theme", but in this original recorded version found on Disc 1, Track 13 of the RCA, you can hear how Williams avoided using thematic material for something entirely original...and unusual, that is if all you've been used to hearing is the film version cue. The final chord of this is about the same as in the final film version. 4. RESCUE OF THE PRINCESS (section 1) (aka "Shootout In The Cell Bay")--Presented on Disc 1, first part of Track 11 on the FOXB, you can tell this is an alternate cue by listening closely to the end section, especially the final crashing of cymbals and timpani (underscoring the Rebels jumping into the trash compactor). 5. END TITLE-- Found on the FOXB as the second part of Disc 1, Track 2, and again on Track 16 of the same disc. Here, you can clearly hear the horn section out of tune (sounding a lot like a high school marching band) when it starts to play "Luke's Theme". Source: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Original-Triogy-Soundtrack-4-CD-set/id/9971 The Empire Strikes Back (1980) 1. THE IMPERIAL PROBE (Side 1, second part of Track 1, OLP; Disc 2, second part of Track 2, FOXB; Disc 1, second part of Track 2, RCA)--This is the original recorded version of the music following the opening prologue scroll where remote probes are launched into space and one of them lands on Hoth. The opening is about the same as the final film version (with the hidden introduction of Vader's march), but here this particular cue is more dramatic than its film counterpart. A 12-second segment (from 2:30 to 2:42 on the RCA) was left out of the OLP and FOXB. From the end of this segment, we go to "The Ice Planet Hoth" (see #4 above) and join Luke on his Tauntaun. The OLP edition was the second section of the track "Main Title (Star Wars)", while the FOXB was the second section of "The Imperial Probe (extended version)", and the RCA was the first section of "The Ice Planet Hoth". 2. LUKE'S NOCTURNAL VISITOR (remains unreleased)--This is a slight variation on the final film version of this track, especially the end section of this. This alternate version was never used in the film, obviously, but when you listen to the one in the actual film you'll get an idea on the slow tempo the end section might have been had it been used. 3. CARBON FREEZE (Disc 2, portion of first part of Track 9, RCA)--Original version of a 40-second segment covering a section from where Han's carbon frozen effigy is being lifted from the chamber up through an Imperial officer signaling Luke's arrival. This passage is a more dark-sounding piece than the one heard in the final film. While the RCA presents both 40-second segments, this particular piece can be found on the section from 2:40 to 3:21 on Track 9. 4. THE REBEL FLEET (Side 4, Track 4, OLP; Disc 2, first part of Track 12, RCA)--This is the original recorded version of the epilogue music that leads to the end credits. The very opening is different (with some strings not clearly present in the final film version), and it has been extended a bit both in length and composition. While the FOXB presents the version as heard in the original release print, this alternate cue as heard on the OLP and RCA can be heard in the "special edition" film re-release (albeit in edited form). 5. END CREDITS (Side 4, second part of Track 4, OLP; Disc 2, second part of Track 19, FOXB; Disc 2, second part of Track 12, RCA)--As far as tempo goes, this version of the end credits is a wee bit slower than the one in the film (you'll notice the difference when you listen to the film version), but it still harkens on the same themes ("Luke's Theme", "Yoda's Theme", "The Imperial March", "Han and Leia", "Rebel Fanfare"). On the OLP (which was part of the "Finale" cue), "The Imperial March" section has been tracked with a portion of the concert arrangement version (which we'll talk about in a moment), while Disc 2 of the FOXB and RCA presents this as originally recorded. Source: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Original-Triogy-Soundtrack-4-CD-set/id/9971 Return of the Jedi (1983) 1. LAPTI NEK (film version--Instrumental) (remains unreleased)--This is also the film version of the tune heard at Jabba's palace, only without vocals. In a sense, this remains unreleased, but in another sense, it's not. This version was used in the radio adaptation of Jedi (which is itself available on CD). 2. LAPTI NEK (album version) (Side 1, Track 6, OLP; Disc 4, Track 11, FOXB)--Yet another alternate version of the Jabba party tune. Entirely re-orchestrated with different Huttese vocals, and the London Symphony Orchestra is used for back-up. This was even released as a music video (as found on the LaserDisc box set, The Star Wars Trilogy: The Definitive Collection). The music video would make it's way onto VH1's "Hollywood & Vinyl" TV show, where it was presented as part of a preview for the blockbuster film soundtracks of 1998. 3. LAPTI NEK (English version) (remains unreleased)--Here is a fourth version of the Jabba party tune, this time done in the English language! The Huttese title translates to "Fancy Man". It too is unreleased, but it was heard in the PBS documentary From Star Wars To Jedi: The Making Of A Saga. 4. HAN SOLO RETURNS (Alternate version #2) (Disc 1, Track 5, RCA)--Another version of the scene for when Han Solo is released from his carbonite prison. The beginning is the same right up until Jabba appears. The Jabba theme section is different from its original counterpart. This version was used for the radio adaptation of Jedi. 5. HAN SOLO RETURNS (film version) (on the RCA)--Sections of the actual film version of the cue have been scattered on the RCA's Disc 1. The film version starts out the same as its two counterparts until Bousch reveals its mask. The section from where Leia is revealed until the curtain is open to reveal Jabba can be found at the 8:40 to 9:01 mark of the RCA's Track 11 ("Land Of The Ewoks"). The end section (where Han and Leia are led away by Jabba's goons) can be found at the 1:27 to 2:05 mark of the RCA's Track 6 ("Luke Confronts Jabba"). This will lead to tracked music from the tail ends of "Final Duel" and "Fight In The Dungeon". 6. THE RETURN OF THE JEDI (film version) (Side 2, Track 5, OLP; Side 1, Track 5, RCAG; Disc 3, Track 5, FOXB; Disc 1, second part of Track 7, RCA)--The version of the Sail Barge battle cue as heard in the film forsakes originality (as in the first recorded version) and uses some of the trilogy's major themes ("Luke's Theme", "Rebel Fanfare", "Ben's Death", "TIE Fighter Attack", "X Wings Draw Fire") as its basis. The beginning, middle, and end sections are essentially the same. The RCA was re-titled "Sail Barge Assault". 7. THE EMPEROR ARRIVES (first section, film version) (Disc 2, first part of Track 6, RCA)--This is an edited version of the cue's opening section as actually heard in the film. This is the part that was re-scored when the Emperor's shuttle arrives at the Death Star. This can be heard at the 0:00 to :46 mark of the RCA's Disc 2, Track 6 ("The Lightsaber"). 8. THE EWOK BATTLE (six-second bridge) (remains unreleased)--This passage can be heard in the actual film just as the first AT-AT explodes and the Ewoks cheer for joy. This has never been released in any format. 9. DARTH VADER'S DEATH (introduction-section 1, film version) (Side 2, first part of Track 5, VAR; Disc 3, first part of Track 16, FOXB; Disc 2, second part of Track 8, RCA)--Re-recorded 15-second introduction to the cue for the title scene as it was actually heard in the film. The VAR rendition runs a bit slower in pace (I prefer the one in the film). 10 LEIA BREAKS THE NEWS (alternate) (Disc 4, first part of Track 20, FOXB)--Re-recording of the cue (ultimately never used in the film) where Leia and Han resolve their relationship while revealing Luke's relationship to Leia. Generally the same arrangement right up until Han and Leia start to kiss. Then we get a fast version of the "Han and Leia" theme, followed by a reprise of the Ewok parade. The final chord though, is along the same lines as its actual film counterpart. 11. FUNERAL PYRE FOR A JEDI (film version) (Disc 4, second part of Track 20, FOXB; Disc 2, third part of Track 9, RCA)--The scene where Luke cremates his father, Darth Vader, was re-scored for the final film. This is a more softer variation on "Ben's Theme" rather than the more majestic one heard in the original recorded cue. On the RCA, for some strange reason, this was coupled with the original version and re-titled "Light Of The Force". 12. EWOK CELEBRATION (alternate film version mix) (remains unavailable)--This is the same film version of the climactic celebration scene, only without orchestration. This version was used in the Jedi radio adaptation, which is itself available on CD. 13. EWOK CELEBRATION (album version) (Side 2, first part of Track 6, OLP; Disc 3, first part of Track 19, FOXB)--Different mix of the celebratory music from the end of the film, with the Ewoks' voices more present than the straightforward chorus heard in the actual film, but the ending is basically the same (Ewok lyrics crossfading into English lyrics). Source: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Original-Triogy-Soundtrack-4-CD-set/id/9971 Jurassic Park (1993) 1. INCIDENT AT ISLA NUBAR (Jurassic Park: 20th Anniversary, Track 3 [2013, Geffen Records])--A different take has been used for replacing the very end "The Falling Car" cue (at the end of "Incident At Isla Nublar" in this release) to correct a loud stage noise.
  20. As an archivist who have documented some discographies on the web (on Wikipedia and on my own websites), I consider that some Labels (like Fresh Sound Records, to name one), who put 2 LP by two different artists on 1 CD, are doing a great mistake. Why they do that? To boost the sales of a lesser known artist, using the fame of another? To group the albums under a theme or a genre? Just because they don't have a long term vision in the reissue plan of their stuff... Why??? Understand me, to put these CD on a discography is... tricky. Do we have to count them as Reissues... Collaborations? Well, that's not what they really are, technically they are "compilations" (and sometimes they add BONUS tracks on these CD)... Do we have to regroup them in a "Various Artist Compilations" Section instead? I just ask, what to do whith these U.F.O's? Take the example of a record store (even if I know they're facing the threat of extinction...). In which section we put those CDs? In the "A" artist section, in the "B" artist section... in both? In a "Various" section? Do you understand that's it's a non sense to do that? Dear Labels, stop doing that. Mercy!

  21. For my part, I never get used to the original Return of The Jedi album... Too much action cues... and the unforgivable missing of the Death of Yoda and the Final duel! What's yours?
  22. Hi, I wonder if a list of those albums exist somewhere... I think it would be a good idea to make one. I think it would be a great idea to highlight the fact that sometimes, what we find on an original album is very different than what we can found on the Expanded reissues.... Edits, merging... re-recordings... Please help me to complete the list! This is all but scientific, but I think it deserved a specific thread!
