  1. Ha, no, I ordered 'Mussolini: The Untold Story', 'Casper', 'The Rocketeer' and 'Two Mules for Sister Sara' with it but was saving 'War of the Worlds' as the final one to open and listen to.
  2. At FSM a number of people have reported a defective disc 1 with what appears to be a scratch on the outer edge of the disc that causes the final few tracks to be unplayable. Upon reading this I opened mine to discover that unfortunately I had the same issue so I've contacted Intrada for a replacement. My copy had been sitting unopened since it arrived in Monday (I ordered 5 cds and was saving this one for last) so if anyone hasn't checked their copy yet I would recommend they open it and take a look. Here is a photo of what the damage looks like:
  3. My copy has just arrived to the Netherlands in less than a week from ordering. Extremely surprised it's here so quickly and a bit of a relief as my last transatlantic order took nearly 6 weeks to arrive! Looking forward to digging in to this, the package looks great.
  4. A very interesting titbit was revealed on this week's 'Inglorious Treksperts' podcast by guest Brannon Braga. He revealed that John Williams was approached by Seth Macfarlane to score 'Cosmos', and he almost did it! I do a lot of work on documentary series and when people have suggested approaching Williams to score them I've always thought the notion laughable so it's interesting to hear that he apparently seriously considered it in the last decade!

  5. These are stunning, many thanks for sharing!
  6. Can't wait to get this, the package looks great! For anyone interested in alternate artwork HQCovers posted some terrific ones 5 years ago and I'm excited to soon have a release to use some of them on! https://hqcovers.net/2015/12/29/war-of-the-worlds-by-john-williams/
  7. Interesting, frustratingly I just bought the last release a couple of months ago but fair play to them if they are releasing it again from more complete/better sources, always a worthy pursuit. The previous expansion is probably enough for me (and made me appreciate the score much more than the OST had) but I'll take a listen to any new music this release has and go from there.
  8. Wow, I've never even heard of this sequence, thanks for sharing!
  9. Roger previously said on FSM that 'Land Before Time' is in the works so fingers crossed it comes together at some point. "Both Land Before Time and American Tail have been on our list with UMG for years. They'll eventually get done, but these co-productions between UMG and Universal take a lot of time and patience." https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=120204&forumID=1&archive=0
  10. I e-mailed Awesome Distro (who dispatch the UK orders) to enquire about this as there was nothing to indicate that it was not yet in stock when it was announced. I heard back this morning and it turns out they were indeed waiting for stock but it has arrived and should ship in the next day or two.
  11. You can watch it as a 'visual album' on Apple Music/iTunes. I would have much preferred them to release it as a straightforward release in the movies section as other concerts have been though.
  12. There's so much negativity in this thread that it's bumming me out and I think I'll avoid it until I've seen the concert for myself. I'm not saying that we shouldn't be critical but surely we can enjoy this for what it is rather than nitpicking about what it isn't? It's the first time we've had a complete concert conducted by John Williams on Blu-Ray and it's with one of the best orchestras in the world! My copy is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow and I can't wait to sit down and enjoy it.
  13. Intrada seem to be in with Sony too, they did 'Legends of the Fall' recently but I think there have been others as well.
  14. Love these Tintacle, thanks for sharing!
