Well I finally joined

Hello all. Well after about 10 years of lurking around these boards, I finally bit the bullit and created an account. I have been a lifelong fan of John Williams and of film scores. My first lp (yes, vinyl) I got was Return of the Jedi in '83 when I was 9 and it was all downhill from there. Mr. Williams will always be my favorite but since I grew up in the '80s I also love the scores of Horner, Goldsmith, Barry, etc. I do enjoy some contemporaries such as Giacchino, Portman, Debney, Desplat, and yes, even a few Zimmer scores. I am also a lifelong Star Wars fan. I remember images from my mind when my mother took me and my brother to a drive-in in '77 to see it. I was 2 and a half yet like I said, I can remember that night and certain images from the screen come back to me. I'm also a huge Indy fan and of Spielberg in general. Jaws is my favorite movie of all time! I say Jaws because for me the Star Wars and Indy film were more than movies to me then and still are today.

I own around 300 scores and soundtracks on CD and vinyl but for the sake of a long read I'm only gonna list the J. Williams scores that I own:

I primarily play my Cds on a Arcam 7 cd player through Musical Fidelity V-DAC or my Pioneer SACD/DVDA player. My vinyl is played on my Music Hall 2.1 turntable with Grado Gold cartridge. When using headphones, they are the Grado SR80is through a MusicalFidelity V-CAN headphone amp. Yes, I'm a bit of an audiophile :P I do have an i-pod buts its only for the gym and while traveling.

Okay, that should do it for now. Looking forward to contributing to some interesting conversations.
