I'll definitely have from "Tink Grows Up" to the end of "The End Of Hook" as one whole huge piece. However, at the same time I'll be separating the whole sequence into the proper cues that they should be but they will be gapless playback.

I will do the same but at the same time to have the seperate cues standing alone would also be very nice.

Hmmm...I'm not convinced. It could be Captain Blood, or one of Tim Curry's flamboyant movies...

I have to say MV's avatar doesn't have so much excitement and kick as many since we already knew well in advance that Hook was coming. The release date crawling nearer on the other hand is damn exciting!

We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream.

La-La Land Records and Sony Music presents the world premiere release of the official remastered and expanded edition of renowned composer John Williams's original score to the 1991 Tri-Star Pictures adventure/fantasy Steven Spielberg-directed epic, HOOK!

Ahoy, matey’s! It’s almost here! No, not John William’s masterful score to HOOK, but Easter…and nothing says Easter like an awesome Alfred Newman biblical score!

THE ROBE: EXPANDED ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK (2-CD SET)
LLLCD 1203
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
RETAIL PRICE: $24.98

PRODUCED BY NICK REDMAN
MASTERED BY DANIEL HERSCH at d2 MASTERING
LINER NOTES BY JULIE KIRGO
ART DIRECTION BY DAN GOLDWASSER

Like Christ, Alfred Newman’s heavenly score to the 1953 psychological biblical epic THE ROBE has risen from the dead. Long out of print, La-La Land Records resurrects one of Mr. Newman’s greatest scores, fully remastered and slightly longer than previous editions. This epic score has been given the Redman/Hersch/ Matessino attention it so richly deserves…never has this powerful score sounded so divine. Insightful liners by the lovely Julie Kirgo and masterful art direction by Dan Goldwasser also add to this classic reissue.

While it’s not a brightly colored Egg, our next release is certain to brighten some of your Easter baskets. . .

How much you guys think Hook will last? 1 day? 2 days? 3 days? More than a week? I'm surely ordering it the moment it will be online, but I think 5,000 copies at 30 bucks should last at least a week.

I predict it will sell out in 24-48 hours.

Between the early heads up and the extra promotion from JWFan and underscores.fr, everyone knows about this release.

If Williams/his rep was so involved, it would have been cool for them to offer 100 or so autographs, however unlikely that would have been.

I'll give it till a day after their next release before it sells out.

First Ben-Hur, now The Robe. I think I'm getting both releases and maybe I'll add Dragonslayer for good measure.

More than 140 minutes presented, out of 150 recorded? We made out pretty well, could've been a lot worse.

It needs to be next Friday already. :D

Do we know that 150 minutes is the exact number that was recorded? The release says there are Unused and Alternate cues, and there's possibly more of those than we actually know about.

Only 150 minutes of music was recorded for the film. 3CDs isn't necessary.


Around 150 minutes of unique music was recorded for Hook. 2 Discs is fine.

There's been no official statement on the matter or anything, but I've been compiling information about the Hook score for half my life and that's the figure I've come to and I believe it to be very very accurate.

So my main concern is: Will I be able to get one on time? I can't check the internet continuously to put my order down as soon as possible.
When would Moviemusic.com start taking orders for this one? That's the site I usually use.
And then could I have it delivered to the ship in Fort Lauderdale? Should be possible. Looking forward to this one very much!
