  1. It's different than the pop version found on the Rhino.

    Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, but speaking of SUPERMAN, is anyone curious about the John Williams cues which showed up on THE RICHARD DONNER CUT of SUPERMAN II, and which have never been heard elsewhere before (save for Ken Thorne's orchestrations of those cues in Lester's SUPERMAN II)?

    In the use of williams score on S2 , there is very short unused music, when after the crash of the young sups space ship, he opens it , when the phantom zone explode, and the big question is : Who have composed the track of the moon encounters when Non crash the shuttle , this piece is located also during the fight in Metropolis ...Williams or Thorne ???

  2. I met him backstage of two of his concerts in Boston, I write him a letter translated by a student from New England Conservatory, as my English is so poor , so i had a call for someone at Symphony Hall who pretended that he was to busy to met any one, but as JW saw my letter , she said " Maestro JW would like to meet you after the concert" I was so happy !!! He gave me a sign to keep patient because he salute the guy that have conduceted the BPO for the anthem, then he come to me and thanked me to have come to his concert and ask me if I am a Pariser , I said that I live in south France near the city of Festival ( Cannes ) and Monaco I composed a variation on one of his filmmusic he said " woaw , do have you seen the film ?" I said "no, just an exerpt at TV, and listening Your wonderfull theme, then I done a variation on it " ...That was my first meeting , the second one was less kind , the third ( in England ) 6 years later was just disappointing ,he recognize me ( ! ) and gave me a rather than cool hand shaking ( just the end of the fingers ) with a forced smile ...Contrario the meeting with Jerry Goldsmith was far better satisfying , one of my best friend ( a famous violinist ) wanted him to compose a piece for violin and orchestra , as I send to her some music from him , the first time he was busy with recording of the mummy, so we caldn't talk to much, but the experience was bad because of one of the staff of the LSO, who doesn't believe the fax of my friend , BUT I had the chance to meet Jerry Goldsmith again in Monaco, and can quietly explain what we have in mind , he was very happy and honord by what I wanted for him, but decline the offer because , he said, I have no time to do it ...now I realize the meaning of his words, he knew that he couldn't battle long with his sickness, but at least he was kind enough to talk and having a picture together, so I dedicated my first soundtrack to his memory, that the least I could done ...

  4. His ass.
    Tss, Tss ...
    No it wasnt. Digital recording was only a few seconds at that time.What you see on Cd's as DDR, is a lie. music was only recorded in full digital in the late 90's. And then it was remastered in analog to give it a warm compressed sound.
    DDR means Dutsch Democratic Republic ...

    Also, Star Trek was recorded with digital equipment on...79.

    Unless they recorded it with different equipment - which I doubt.The "normal" OST release is so hissy it couldn't possibly have been a digital recording. :blink:
    Yes E.T. soundtrack was digitally recorded but for some reason that escape me, was only release like that in Japan with its fantastic sound , as well as Poltergeist and Outland were Digitally recorded but released on CD as analog recording ...
    May I ask what is your source of such information?
    I'm not jerrygollay but let me answer this question in his name.DSC00586-1.jpg

  6. Why would the Japanese versions be better, I wonder? What exactlyt is different? Compression? EQ?

    The sound between American and Japanese LP where differents , I know some mixing focus more on high notes , for The CDs, I give another exemple , when I got E.T. Japanese MCA release it was DDD the dynamic was fantastic , AAD and flat sound in the rest of the world ... Now for the Varese / MCA , I noticed that between , for exemple " attack on the water skier" the track doesnt fade the same way , so, may be , the master isn't similar for both release, I actually use HIFI to listen music , and I am just curious to know if someone noticed this disagrement in the DRACULA soundtrack...And if this is the same on the Japanese release...

  7. The sound on that CD is shite!

    The sound of this CD moving me less than Your animate boobs , but it seems collectors are seeking this title for such a long time ...I am curirous if the japanese MCA Victor release have the same problems , I got the JAWS and Jaws 2 japanese and the sound is superior than the MCA( J 1 ) and Varese ( J 2 )release of the titles !!!
