Great listen. Loved the tease of more expanded releases from the Maestro coming soon. I had no doubt, but it is nice to hear it officially.

Thanks and yes ofcourse, but in the meantime we have enough releases including this new 3CD set to deep dive and enjoy !!!

I hate when people say “It sounds crystal clear - I heard it in the car.”

 

In the CAR? Maybe not the best place for judging sound quality...

 

What are you talking about? Mike Matessino has been test playing these albums in his car and everywhere else! :P

Yeah, sure, but not all of us have produced the album. Also, is it reeeeeally the crystal clean sound MM is listening for when he’s driving about Hollywood? Or could it be edits, track list flow, mastering choices, etc etc.

 

All I am saying is: I think a lot of times, it’s funny to hear people comment on sound quality - it’s good, it’s bad, too much or not enough bass, it sounds thin and so on - and then you find out they’re listening on computer speakers. It’s a bit of a contradiction.

 

I make the same (dis-)connection between “sound crystal clear” and “in my car”.

 

I listen to JW while driving too - but not to judge the quality of the recording. I think it sort of takes the edge of the judgement.

I listened to this podcast episode this morning.  It was nice to hear their description of the new Fortress of Solitude alternate, and how the cut of the film it was written for was very different.  Also it was nice to hear the new I Can Fly alternate, revealing that it was a Williams arrangement we were hearing in Fresh Air from Supes IV all along.  It was also nice to hear @Amer's voice at the end!


Great job everyone!

Great listen, though they say that JW only allows MM to remaster his scores from the 90s onwards. If only that were true (Hook).

 

No, that isn't what they said.  They said Matessino is the only one asked to remaster anything from the 90s and earlier.  Though of course, they surely misspoke, and Matessino would actually be asked to remaster any of his scores.

Could anyone write down the highlights of the interview? I don't have time to listen to lengthy podcasts 😞

 

This isn't an interview.  This is a 35 minute podcast episode where two Superman nuts discuss the new LLL release.  Mike doesn't appear here.  Are you thinking of something else?

It's possible he mean't that Matessino isn't going to be mastering future original OST releases for scores like Episode IX, People like Pat Sullivan would be handling that.

Maybe.  Or just that none of Williams 2000s or 2010s scores are being expanded any time soon

Harry Potter is 2001-2004! ;)

 

But I know what you meant. (Not to mention the whole Sony thing)
