I only got ON WILLOWS AND BIRCHES and NIGHTWATCH. My interest is primarily with previously unreleased works, not compilations or expansions etc. I already have everything on those compilations anyway.

I'm not planing on getting the new release of "The Phantom Menace", nor the Philips compilation. Still haven't bought the Sony and Silva compilations due to some unexpected expenses at home, but plan in correcting that in the next couple of weeks.
All the rest is already looking great on my CD shelves.

I bought: Harp Concerto, 1941 expansion, and I bought just the "Happy Birthday Variations" track from the compilation
I'm planning on buying: Nightwatch and Midway (I have the rerecording for the latter, so this is pretty low on my Williams "to buy" list)

If I find myself with enough money in the distant future, then I'll try to buy every single JW release, even straight reissues or compilations of already released music, for the sake of collecting. But most likely I'll avoid those.

Maybe I should get "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" (the 3D re-release)" after all!

If nobody gets it, it might turn out to become a valuable Collector's Item in 10 years!

:P

I'm only really interested in new/unreleased music, so I bought Nightwatch/Killer by Night, Expanded 1941, and Midway. I didn't buy any of the compilations or the Harp concerto, mainly because I'm holding out for a CD release. I'm not a big fan of digital downloads unless they're uncompressed and come with artwork and liner notes. They may be the future, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

If they are the future they ought to be uncompressed and come with artwork and liner notes.

The files available for download at bso.org are higher quality than CD. But sadly no notes whatsoever...

I have gotten thusfar 1941, Midway and On Willows and Birches. I might buy the Sony compilation in the future but I'll leave the other two on the shelf. I'll also be buying Nightwatch in the future as well.

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. 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. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Out of these, I only bought 1941 and Midway.

I always try to get the JW score releases, Complete, Expanded, or just your regular release...
