  1. Thanks @Jay for listening in and providing commentary! I was stricken with a bug since late Wednesday evening so I apologise for sounding groggy during most of the show. I’d prerecorded Neil and Deniz on Monday so I was more myself then, thankfully. Deniz messaged me to say that Sara Horner (James Horner’s widow) listened to the full show live last night and enjoyed it, highlighting The Wonder Years segment with Star Trek 2, so that was lovely to hear. Here’s a link to the full show and a longer edit of the Star Trek 2 segment will be in next month’s FSM Online. Movie Magic TX 290821 It means that the AFM aren’t charging more reuse fees for larger units. 5,000 used to be the max affordable limit.

  4. I asked both ScreenArchives and Intrada, because I'm not sure who will send me the replacement disk. Already intrada, confirmed me they will send me a replacement CD for Cocoon. I'm so busy right now managing all those defective CD! I think it could be worthwile to create a thread just to list the recent defective CDs from each labels. I'm sure it would be helpfull for some users who don't have the time to read all the different threads for each release.

  13. Soundstream is a defunct digital recording format. You'll see the Soundstream logo on most of the old Philips JW / Boston Pops albums, and Neil Bulk uses it as his avatar on the FSM forum. Here's some more info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soundstream

  18. Very nice to see this come out although almost all of the albums have been pretty findable over the years. I was so excited for each new release when they came out at the time. Even with having them all, I'll double dip. The timing (January) feels like the beginning of a series of releases for JW's 90th Birthday (Feb 8, 2022). It will be interesting to see what the various labels beyond this.

  19. Neil just indicated he's already seen the new HD versions of 3 and 4 and they are a big improvement over the old versions Tim just said it is limited to 10,000 copies due to "new Union rules". What new union rules? Does this impact post-2005 scores by any chance?

  20. I can't say what is "definitive," but these are my favorite versions of the various OT concert pieces: Main Title (London Symphony, The Hollywood Sound) Princess Leia's Theme (Boston Pops) Here they Come (Skywalker Symphony) Throne Room and Finale (Skywalker Symphony) The Imperial March (Vienna Phil) Yoda's Theme (Boston Pops) The Asteroid Field (Boston Pops) Luke and Leia (Boston Pops) Parade of the Ewoks (Skywalker Symphony) Jabba the Hutt (Skywalker Symphony) The Forest Battle (Skywalker Symphony) As you can see, it's the Williams-conducted recordings which I prefer. I know many here are fond of the Varujan Kojian recording with the Utah Symphony, but it's never been a favorite of mine.

  22. To make those new 2018 editions, they went back to every take of every cue (or at least, selected takes of every cue) and rebuilt every single track over again from scratch from those. The team making these new edits did not meticulously match the same portions of the same takes used back in 1999/2002/2005 (a process that people like Mike Matessino and Neil Bulk always follow), but instead... well, I have no idea how they decided which portions of which takes to use, but the result is that each of these 3 album rebuilds are full of wrong takes throughout. {the original trilogy albums do not suffer this same fate - they have many other problems but no wrong takes} With Duel of the Fates in particular, the final version made in 1999 notably replaced a few portions of what was performed with little bits tracked in from other parts of the same recording, while on the 2018 edition they did not re-create those so you can now hear what was originally performed that they later chose to track over. Anyways, my original point was that a timpani moving from one channel to the other could have been a mistake the 2018 team made that wasn't done for the original 1999 edit, potentially. I have no idea, I haven't checked either track out to see, personally.

  24. Ferris Bueller is a great, classic movie. Ira Newborn's score is super fun, too. LLL gave it its first release 30 years after the release of the film, even including cues that Hughes didn't use in the movie. I still listen to it often.

  25. The new Han Solo and the Princess arrangement to me sounds like JW is eulogizing Carrie Fisher more-so than anything else. It certainly has no relation to the tone and feel of the TESB score or film

  26. You were discussing it! Soundstream is the recording system used for the Utah/Kojian recording. It was the first commercial digital recording system and was astonishingly good quality. From the liner notes: It is excellent, no doubt, but sadly not perfect: the violin soloist can’t hold the (difficult!) final note of Leia’s theme, and someone really should have quietly unplugged the synth rig from the mixing desk at several points during Cantina Band. Kudos to them, though, for at least having a bash at the source music for once. I’m still amazed, though, at how rarely-recorded Han & the Princess is. Do you think JW didn’t like it? Mark

    I'll definitely check it out, but if I'm honest, the girl's voiceover in the beginning of the trailer worries me. Also, the aesthetic of the show (from the snippets that I can pick up) doesn't seem to appeal all that much to me. Feels a bit sci-fi channel.

  33. I have a question: The tracks on disc two labeled Alternate Mix, are those tracks the same mix as the OST? Could one, therefore, mix them into the OST program and have an alternate extended program that is all the same mix? I think that is what I gleaned from the liner notes. I really wish all album booklets were a minimum of thirty pages

  34. And here a behind the scene clip of the end of the song (from an european promotional laserdisc). The clip shows the pirates coming out of the smoke tunnel that separates the pirate town and the Jolly Roger singing the end of "Low Below" song - replaced in the movie by "Show us the Hook".

  36. Primarily the principal flute player in the middle section, I would say, who clearly cannot be expected to flutter-tongue that fast and simply cannot keep up. Kojian should have known better. Luke & Leia is also catatonically slow on that recording, for no readily explainable reason. The Soundstream recording, however, is wonderful - clear, realistic and with cracking bass. In general, I would agree that mostly it’s a toss-up between the 1990 Skywalker recording and the various 1980s Boston discs. I can’t share the love for the VPO Imperial March, I’m afraid - too slow, and the rall at the end is just… wrong. A shame, because other aspects of it are excellent. Mark

  37. Intrada's pressing plant woes continue "Unfortunately we have discovered a sequencing issue with our recent batch of Cocoon. All of the music is there but in the wrong sequence. You may still place an order for Cocoon, but we will not be shipping any more copies until we correct the problem. Future orders for Cocoon will ship either with the correct CD already inserted, or with a separate replacement disc." http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.8288/.f

  39. Neil S. Bulk (or IndySolo as he was once known here about 20 years ago!) and music director Deniz Cordell join me on tonight’s Movie Magic to talk about this release, and play Horner’s thematic ideas on piano. It’s a fun chat with lots of cues & insider Trek references you may enjoy. We’re on www. Belfast247Radio.com from 7-9pm (GMT)

  40. MV Gerhard is the head of a film music label that releases scores from many composers across many eras of film-making. When he said, in February 2021, "We hope to have some new releases first week or two of March. After that, fingers crossed, a great flood shall wash upon the soundtrack marketplace unlike ever before...at least for a period of time" he was of course thinking about all the titles they had worked on that had gotten delayed that he knew would be big sellers. He knew they would be big sellers because fans of all different composers and eras of film making buy titles from his label! So subsequently, when every single month has brought another title that is selling multiple THOUSANDS of copies - X-Men in May! Always In June! Somewhere In Time in July! The Wrath of Khan in August! - his statement has been extremely accurate, and there are of course more titles of this nature yet to come, too! Everyone has different favorite composers, different eras of film scoring they are more drawn to, different genres and styles they prefer, etc etc. Just because titles that are not deep in your wheelhouse have been announced yet does not mean that MV made any sort of inaccurate or misleading statement when he said that.

Can someone recommend me scores that are as complex thematically as this? Thanks in advance.
