  1. As King Mark already mentioned, too many to list, but to me the biggest glaring omission in JW Original Soundtrack history has to be The Helicopter Sequence from Superman. It's the first public appearance of the character in the movie, a huge rescue, and a musical highlight....and is nowhere to be found. Even as a 12 year old boy first getting the LP I remember wondering how the crap that cue was left off the soundtrack.
  2. Geez, how did I miss this entire thread until today?! Jay, just read through your recap, and I distinctly remember watching this on our local metro Atlanta PBS station when it aired. I would have just been finishing up my 9th grade year of high school and was super pumped to see Empire, and remember hearing Yoda's Theme and The Imperial March for the very first time on this show. Had no idea what would happen musically in the sequel, so for some reason I thought Yoda's Theme was going to be the new Main Title music - do not ask me why. To answer one of your thoughts on Threepio and the M
  3. Saw the movie last night and even though I'm a long-time Star Wars fan from way back in '77, I was prepared to be let down after reading so many "meh" to "absolutely terrible" reviews, but me and my adult kids all absolutely loved it. Sure, it wasn't perfect and there are some things that I would have liked to seen play out in the film the way I'd played them out in my head, but I've never been that kind of fan who bitches about how what's on screen doesn't match up with the made up story in their mind. To me, played out as a perfectly great way to tie up the entire series, hokey parts and a

  5. I am inserting it into the laptop holes as we speak.
  6. All of Towering Inferno sounds fantastic, best I can tell - a huge step up from the old FSM release.
  7. My set showed up earlier than I expected - got it yesterday and it just shipped on Thursday afternoon. From CA to KY in pretty much a day and a half - pretty good time. :) I spent the day yesterday listening through everything and, even as a long-time JW fan from back in the late 70s, with this set and some of the other releases that have come out the past few years, I'm getting a much better appreciation for the 1970-1975 era. I never cared much for Earthquake and it's easily been the least favorite of the disaster movie scores, but this release is fantastic! It's still, like the other t
  8. Well dadgummit - have to actually do work for a couple of hours and check in and this happens!!! I'm slightly panicking - none of these links are working and I'm getting nothing when I try to play the tracks on the FYC site. Is anybody else having issues - has it already been yanked?! Must. Hear. Cues.
  9. Don’t know if anyone has watched any of the CW’s Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover stuff so far, but had on tonight’s episode (Batwoman I think?- wasn’t really paying attention and was doing stuff around the house) and heard a few shout outs to Williams’ Superman themes, both the fanfare and the love theme. Nice to hear both even though I really wasn’t fully focused to enjoy it at all, so thought I’d throw it out in case anyone wants to catch up with tonight’s episode sometime later.
  10. This. I find myself not revisiting the prequel scores as often as the originals and The Force Awakens. Still can't quite get into The Last Jedi, and that's coming from someone who does like the movie. But out of the prequels, I'd still put The Phantom Menace ahead of ROTS, leaving poor AOTC in the dead last place.
  11. Yeah, not sure I got the Justice League "hidden" reference either - heck, the "Friends and Foes" cue from that soundtrack literally starts with the Superman fanfare and then it plays again in there at least one more time.
  12. King Mark, there's just a hint of Williams' music right at the very end as a certain superhero shows up with Shazam at the school lunch. I'm kind of surprised no one has mentioned it on here yet, unless I just missed it somewhere. :)
  13. Uh...what the heck?!? Just saw this on the Entertainment Weekly site!! https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/17/john-williams-new-music-disney-star-wars-theme-parks/
  14. Not at home where I can show more pix right now, Amer, but yes, the slipcase is a thicker cardboard. The main CD booklet is just made up of stills from the movie/promotional pix and John Badham’s original LP liner notes. The Nocturne additional booklet (which isn’t bound, just stapled per usual CD inserts) is the more extensive liner notes that get into the history of the movie and character, Williams’ score, and how the CD came to be.
