  1. This isolated score track is such a great addition to this release! The singing direction from JW you elude to is for the head explosion finale. The horns still miss a few notes, but it’s a difficult cue.
  2. Those of a certain age will recall that the 2CD A.I. Oscar Promo was controversial due to Spielberg not approving its release. Seemingly this title attracts drama from time to time. I understand the wanting of unreleased music, but if John Williams doesn’t wish it to be out there then we should respect that. Discussions on sharing music between users shouldn’t be continued.
  3. ClassicFM are going to premiere a track from this beautiful album tomorrow at a time between 11:30am and 12noon (GMT) https://www.classicfm.com/radio/shows-presenters/bill-turnbull/
  4. Thanks all for the feedback! To echo Maurizio, these kind of events are passion projects and your enthusiastic support is very much appreciated. We still live in hope of a future JW & LSO collabroration! To quote the dearly departed James Horner and Christopher Plummer: "Never Say Never" (also an LSO project, ironically!) :-)
  5. Thanks so much, @TownerFan! Likewise. I really hope you all enjoy this 90 minute conversation and there are so many highlights I know you’ll all enjoy. To add some perspective, remember Ricard created this website alongside the 1999 release of TPM which introduced a new generation to the majesty of Williams. Some of us here were there and many followed. Regardless of when, where or who. This video chat is very much a tribute to the seminal JW & LSO collaboration which many of us grew up with. All 5 guests share so much information and personal anecdotes
  6. Here you are: https://www.facebook.com/timburdenvoiceovers/videos/495894392228/?
  7. Another example of money laundering techniques which Amazon seem to be blind to.
  8. Because of Brexit? We have similar issues, nothing from Amazon EU or numerous Amazon US products are currently available to ship to N. Ireland. Very frustrating.
  9. Yes, very much worth getting. Particularly showcasing JW’s piano virtuosity.
  10. The very limited SACD pressing of the Live Edition is back in stock at Amazon U.K. if any JWFANs are flush with cash: John Williams - Live In Vienna (Hybrid-SACD) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08PDP4BLD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_TXB1RK8DF0JWHZHWERH0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  11. It’s like opening a door to 2010 when reading over these comments. The Weasley Stomp from Hooper is the one highlight for me. Desplat & Doyle delivered many highlights.

    It just works well as an edited ending and isn’t jarring like some others. It also has more closure.

    I always enjoyed the original album edit of ‘Superfeats’ which ends neatly with the timpani roll from ‘Star Ship Escapes’.
  14. Thanks for all of this, @Jay as it’s a great resource and thanks @bollemanneke for mentioning my older interviews with Mike. There’s also Jaws & The Fury (with the brilliant John Takis): https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/7FYSW7jp2Ar8K6Yp6 https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/M9RcwuwwKv1uEd1W8 Plus Hook with the always entertaining MV & Matt from LLL: https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/beuwFoA7BFhqMGPL8 The career overview interview which highlights Mike Matessino’s fascinating beginnings and early projects was recorded at A
  15. It’s a wonderful score and one that features the glorious golden era of Horner with the LSO. Mike M didn’t work on this, it’s a D. Fake production.
  16. There’s a very noticeable improvement in sound and the low end is especially more prominent. The timpani is effectively spread antiphonally too. Yes that photo is great, Josh. It’s lifted from the end of the Blu-ray/DVD music feature which I would encourage you all to watch.
  17. The montage track list is detailed in the comments section on Soundcloud, also here: Sleepers Amistad Stepmom The Patriot Always Home Alone 2 Home Alone JFK Far & Away Rosewood Sabrina Jurassic Park Nixon War Horse American Journey (5th Movement) Sleepers The Patriot
  18. Williams’ favourite French horn player Jim Thatcher is a future guest and this is a montage I put together to highlight some best moments:
  19. I’ve always (!) enjoyed this movie. There are some lovely visuals thanks to Mikael Solomon and overall the film possesses a sincere warmth. There was an odd similarity to Ghost, yes. Mainly due to the 2 leads never saying “I love you” in return. Probably just a coincidence. The score is one I would often return to when needing to unwind. It’s a beautiful work and one that will be better appreciated with a new expanded and remastered release.
  20. Terrific news indeed! I recorded the broadcast in 2002 but always hoped for a new recording.
  21. What a wonderful sound these guys made!
  22. I edited it to make a clean ending after pulling it from the film audio years ago, before MM’s album. In hindsight, the timing was slightly off.
  23. Are we talking about this? Yes, it’s outstanding and one of the highlights from the 4CD set. That rhythm and trombone as Alex says is classic “jazz infused” Williams which we love!
  24. Excellent show! Very enjoyable, I re-listened to the Conrad Pope and Sandy De Crescent editions straight afterwards, whilst lying in bed with headphones during the night 🎧 . *apologies for that image!
  25. This is exactly why we had the ejector seat installed at the NBC screening room for our 2018 London gathering. Shame we never got to use it! :-)
