So, can we safely assume this will be a 2cd set?

My dream has come true.
Do you like John Williams? His early work was a little too jazzy for my taste, but when Jaws came out in '75 I really think he came into his own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and an air of consummate professionalism that really gives the pieces a big boost. He's been compared to Jerry Goldsmith but I think John has a far more leitmotif-driven style of composing. In '82 John composed this, E.T., his most accomplished album to date. I think his undisputed masterpiece is "The Magic of Halloween", a theme so catchy most people don't listen to what it means. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of childhood and the importance of friendship, it's also a personal statement about the man himself. Hey Paul!

I am waiting for this announcement since October 2000. Then I learned about the Concorde boot, which I was dissapointed about the sound quality.
The next weeks could be very looooong....

As I've already said, I'm more than content with the old Epic release (I even think that is a bit on the long side), but I gotta say one thing -- that cover blows the old one out of the water! If memory serves, it was the same they had on one of the old boots, but this one seems more slick.

Tell you what. You buy it, send me the discs, and you can keep the liner notes and cover, okay? Okay.

It's a Struzan.
Repeat the JWFan pledge after me: 'I hereby recognise John Towner Williams' place in the world as the great composer there has ever been, and I therefore renounce the works of Rozsa, Korngold, Herrmann, Horner, Kamen, Giacchino (unless the prophecy is fulfilled and he becomes the heir to JTW) and Goldsmith, especially Goldsmith. I understand that if I ever refer to Jurassic Park as anything less than "a masterpiece sixty-five million years in the making" I will be resigned to living out my days at the Zimmershrine.'

I have one of his books, and if memory serves he had to do that after finishing the original piece. He also talks about how Dustin Hoffman had him over to his house to share ideas how Hook should look on the poster.

1941 (2CD) was 30 dollars. And from what I understand, there's just enough music to fit on two CDs.

Course, I wouldn't mind a third of the remastered OST, but I won't mind holding onto my Epic CD either.

So, where's BloodBoal now?
La-La-Land did just throw a massive spanner in his plans! It was
funny - but just for 3 hours.

So, next time, BloodBoal, if you think you've developed another
witty prank - you should rather shut up, right? Just remember my
words.

Honorable Mention to Angela Morley.
