  1. I have to travel to Fresno for work every two weeks, and while the drive is arduous, it's made up for after discovering a vintage record store that has an embarrassment of John Williams original pressings. I don't think they know what treasures they have! I'm giddy and wanted to share with other Williams lovers!!

  3. ABC Classic FM are doing a "Composer Countdown" this month and next. Each presenter on the station has been given the opportunity to present a program of the composer of their choice. Dan Golding, who presents the "Screen Sounds" program on Saturday nights chose to do a feature on the great Maestro himself. Not sure if it's accessible from outside of Australia, but if it is, then to those who are curious, enjoy! https://www.abc.net.au/classic/abc-classic-specials/presenter-favourite-dan-golding-john-williams/11103476

    @Disco Stu @Faleel J.M. NEW KOJI KONDO MUSIC CONFIRMED FOR SMM2!!! I love that he's so respected, he even got a name drop in the direct. How often is a game composer mentioned in any promotional video?

  12. I love that moment. It's always struck me as being surprisingly modern for Williams. Like something in the style of John Powell or Harry Gregson-Williams

    It’s a common opinion that the people who love Shenmue only love it out of nostalgia and he’s saying that he didn’t play it until 2014 and still loved it.

  15. Yes, the track called "Magic" on the Varese Club cd was a random cue from his Broadway play Merlin that Varese put on there accidentally.

  19. Do you sit there watching the seconds tick and get irritated if it's 1:50? Or are you looking for a satisfying amount of exploration and elaboration for the specific idea/motif/scene that is the subject of the track?

  28. Well here is a list of the titles in the Special Collection line to pick from http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4813 And here is the list of composers again and Jerry Fielding's LAWMAN fits the all 3 clues - early Special Collection (the 17th one), early 70s (1971), on the (second) list of composers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawman_(film) http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/22352/Lawman

  30. It's not about 'relating'. It's the usual boring millenium motif of american cinema (also see: Wes Anderson) of prosperous but whiny americans suffering through endless bouts of soul-searching and depression . Not very inviting and basically lazy screenwriting.

  36. Where have I been? I uh, ... um ... I find that question difficult to answer. I vaguely recall revisiting baroque music around that time, and developing a mad crush on a Russian violinist. I might possibly have listened to some film scores by other composers a bit, although I will have to deny that if asked to formally own up to it.

  37. Dude, you have got to move on from these Straw Men examples. Just like your example of the Droid Army theme, no one in their right mind is suggesting he would include every minor theme and motif from all nine movies into one piece. Just the major themes and just some of those. It probably will not happen, but I it is not out of the question, given the saga-ending character of the film, that it does.

  38. I got Intrada's old version of 'Son of the Morning Star' dirt-cheap, so i bagged it and happen to enjoy it quite a lot. The elegy approach (Safan must have had Vaughan-Williams on rotation prior to writing it) seems, remarkably enough, to anticipate many later mournful big drama scores by Williams, Horner, Zimmer et al. (it was written in 1991). It's a very attractive piece of writing, not overly complicated but assured in its handling of the big string section. Recommended.

  41. The Double Trouble March was recorded like that, two similar versions back to back. I have no idea why, nor if it was timed to screen footage that later changed, or not.

  44. Also a 5. I think it is a near-perfect synthesis of the SW sound from the OT, PT, and ST, while also having a theme distinct from its antecedents. As the Lehman analysis notes, it is a rare moment of Williams adhering to a sonata form; the piece is very structured and cohesive. My only complaint is the transition from the opening fanfare to the high strings. It sounds like a measure or two were edited out or something.

  45. I had to stop Azkaban after Summoning the Patronus. What an achingly beautiful track, the last minute especially. The way Williams develops WTTP in this score is simply masterful. But what really surprises with Azkaban is that the score plays like a chamber piece, as if Williams approached the score like a series of miniatures, ala his Children's Suite for Philosoper's Stone. It's inspired writing, poles apart from his lushly orchestrated approach for the first two scores, and innovative scoring for a blockbuster Hollywood franchise score. Frankly I don't think any composer except
